The reason why woman start prostituting is because they have to find a way to make ends meet. They need a find a way to put food on the table, and clothes on their kids back, and a roof over their heads. They have to basically find a way to survive. Prostitution goes back a long way, Prostitution started in the BC’s and a couple of more years later it getting more advanced. But prostitution really wasn’t a problem- in some places. In some countries, if a woman were seen prostituting then she would either be forced into marriage or she should be stoned to death. Is prostitution a threat to marriage? Some say that if your marriage is boring then its okay because it spices up the marriage, others say that it counts as cheating. And that the marriage bed should be between just the two of them. What about if you have kids? Will they know about what you’re doing or will you keep it a secret from them?

Why treat them any differently because of their profession? (Pros & Cons, 2015)

Many say that you make a whole lot of money in a day, but some say an “All money is not good money.” (Toth, 2015)
Did you know that about 72% of prostitutes were beaten and raped as a child? Maybe that’s why they go out and do what they want to do. Because they have deep fear that nobody will ever love them and this is stuff that they grew up on. This is all they know, the world was never kind to them-but then again the world is never kind to anybody-there was nobody to look out for them. It was always these girls against the world.
