Prostitution

A prostitute is a person, “who allows his or her body to be used for lewd purposes in return for payment”. Prostitution is the exchange of sexual services.
Prostitutes are not only females but males as well. Where do they come from? Did they pick this life? No, not all of them chose to do this! People should turn away from the blind assumptions. There are two types of prostitution, voluntary and involuntary. No 14-year-old determines to be one, they do not set demands on themselves. They are pressured into it, they are deceived to by so many fake things. For example, youngsters are lured to another country in the name of work and then cheated upon by their passports and all belongings taken away. The majority think they are going to work as waitresses, dancers in bars, or as domestic servants, but end up in a debt servitude situation in brothels far from home.

Elements they might have been coerced into being a prostitute:

  • Ill-treatment by parents
  • Poverty
  • Bad company
  • Family prostitutes
  • Social customs
  • Inability to arrange marriage
  • Lack of sex education, media
  • Prior incest and rape
  • Early marriage and desertion
  • Lack of recreational facilities, ignorance, and acceptance of prostitution
  • Economic causes include poverty and economic distress
  • Psychological causes include the desire for physical pleasure, greed, and dejection

  1. I really admire all the research and energy that you put into this post. The situation seems to me to be exactly as you describe it.
    There was a Colombian TV series called La promesa (English title: Broken Promises) in which young women who desperately needed meaningful and rewarding jobs were recruited by coñombian shopkeepers (where many of these young women had mediocre jobs). The were promised legitimate jobs in upscale restaurants and other jobs with dignity. Once in Spain the were forced into prostition, some at the disposal of high-level polititions.
    I have had one personal experiencia with this awful betrayal. I lived in Bogota, Colombia for 11 years where I had a favorite restaurant and was always attended by the same young and quite beautiful woman. One day she greeted me with more enthusiasm than ever. She told me she had been offered a high-paying job in an upscale restaurant in Spain. After she went no one heard from her again.
    I truly applaud your work to fight against these crimes where the victims are vulnerable young women and girls.
    With admiration, Rich

    1. Sir, thank you first of all for sharing some needful information. I really am happy with the help I get from all of you. I have seen a lot of news, here in UAE, with the same. Girls as young as 13 are lured in this manner. Their passports confiscated, they were beaten. Once a client who was supposedly booked to be with this youngster in consensual sex, saw that the girl was not ok. He then found out the acts done by brothels and reported it. It is breaking to see such things. I thank you from the depth of my heart in supporting me. 

    1. I do not mean to offend when I say this…but getting into power will not stop these atrocities from happening. Change must first take place in the hearts and minds of all people to see each other, not as a commodity to used and discarded, but rather as a person who is to be treasured, respected, of worth and treated as such.

  2. Those people who read this have never done such a thing. The awareness which you are trying to create is not read by those who actually commit the crime. What can you do for them? Appeal to everyone that they should help someone who looks like a human trafficking victim rather than go and write a post about human trafficking. I am sorry but it is the truth and is the reality that even after reading this post nobody will help those victims in any form or the other. Life is like it there are hundreds of posts on various awareness read by millions yet every day many suffer…..

  3. The feedback is my genuine thing which I actually feel. I could just have written sad & I feel bad for them and other formalities. Please tell me what are you trying to convey with it? I like what you are doing but not the way you are doing it.

    1. I strongly disagree. I don’t think you’ve read the post properly.
      This is what people who read the post could do:
      Parents can educate other parents not to ill treat their children.
      Students can demand for a separate hour dedicated to only sex education.
      High school graduates can take up psychology to help the stricken girls/boys who face these kind of problems everyday.
      There is something that everyone can do.
      Our college has already fulfilled the demand for a separate hour only for sex education.
      Some could just spread awareness by conducting seminars.
      She is a seventeen year old. I appreciate her effort.

      1. I am not talking about this particular post. I like the effort she is putting to create the awareness. I am telling everyone that to really solve this problem you should also suggest the solutions rather than write about the problems. Nobody will help those victims all and we are mere spectators. For your comment, I would say that most numbers of parents love their children very much. Those who are economically backward & uneducated are the only ones to do the deed. Now will I & you go to those parents and tell them what they should do? For your sex education, it is not the responsibility of the student but the respective education board & the government to implement it compulsorily. What will we do hold a placard, shout slogans

      3. I respect your views and opinions. I just want to say that we have tried and at least in our city, we are trying to spread the awareness by conducting seminars in regional languages. It is people like her who inspire youngsters to come together.
        If you knew the educational institutions in India, you wouldn’t say such a thing. Even today, anything related to sex is considered a taboo in our society. Unless the youth unites, sex education will not be implied in every school and college.
        Coming to her age, she has mentioned in many of her posts that she is seventeen. Why would she lie about her age?

      4. Who says she isn’t 17. I told that if she didn’t mention her age nobody would know it. It means that anyone can write great articles irrespective of any age. It is good to write about such things but a solution should also be portrayed along. We all argue with each other but can’t help a victim who cries for help. Nice to have a debate with you…

      5. I mentioned her age only because I knew it.
        The reason why we can’t help the victims is because they don’t cry. They are silent. Breaking this silence is the first step. Helping them is secondary.
        It’s nice to have a debate with you too❤️….

  4. Penfila You always have research to back up your blogs. I think it is sick that young girls and guys are forced into prostitution at such young ages. I look forward to more exposes on this subject when you have the time. Thanks again my friend.

  5. There are few reasons of prostitution:- Poverty, Victims of Rape, child labour, human trafficking, peer pressure, lack of parental control, Laziness and thirst for quick wealth.

    Now a days there are many online sites for prostitution.

  6. I think ” Help Break The Silence ” has one of the worlds top leaders in Penfila. I have talked with her about assisting & helping her break the silence. I am also a very true believer in the same issue that Penfila has chosen and so we need to help her and many other best personnel lost their lives. My Plea For You Penfila Is To Open Up 1000 % so we can chase sick perverted individuals off of the internet. What do you say about creating an incredible team work effort out there that wants your help and our help together as one team !!
