    • I think poverty is only part of it.. Most young women who turn to prostitution is  due to abusive relationships, low self esteem,etc...

    • Hi thevintagediva,

      What a wonderful and blessed work you do! I think we as women should combat prostitution as we united for combating diseases or abusing men.

    • Vintagediva, you are so right! I’ve worked as the childrens advocate in a battered womens shelter for several years paid and now volunteer.  

      One of the number one reasons is abuse and fear. I have spoken with so many mothers who were on the streets because of their abusers. I love it when we can help get these women relocated so that they can start their and their children’s lives over.

    • I think due to a combination of circumstances - but in third world countries it’s often a lifestyle choice especially if widowed or orphaned ..

      These countries usually have around 90% of the population living in grinding proverty

    • Agreed that poverty is only a small part of it.  Even polished professionals turn to prostitution and often poverty isn’t necessarily central to the reasoning behind prostitution.  A look at the Human Trafficking issues is paramount when discussing prostitution though.

      Has anyone seen the movie TAKEN? CALL AND RESPONSE? and SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE?  What did you think about the issue of human trafficking???

    • Don’t get me wrong but younger women goes to practice prostitution like a lifestyle because with this “income” they can get easily things than working hard like you and me.

    • I personally feels its the individuals circumstances as to why they turn to prostitution. And then you have some women who have a sex addition and feel they have to take this route for sexual gradification.

    • I really don’t think anyone want’s to be a prostitute. I think life’s circumstances (abuse, poverty drug addiction, low self-esteem) make some women feel as if this is their only option to survive.  

      Then there is the whole supply and demand principle playing out.
