    because women have never been taught or given rights for so many years. so when their husband dies or their back is against the wall and they have hungry mouths to feed and given no other choice, what else can they do? Sadly, prostitution is indeed the oldest profession because of the hardness of our hearts. It is not honorable and a sin but can you stand the cry of an infant who is hungry, could you let a child cry and cry till they cannot cry anymore? Forgive us, Men have failed in running this world and through our foolishness have made women inanimate sex objects. And to those who willingly prostitute themselves, a far worse judgment. May their be a day when their is no need for prostitution

    I heard someone say that the other day, and I was taken aback a little too! I would think the oldest profession, would be farming- you know... to EAT? But hey, maybe people have never farmed for food and it's all some great lie.

    If you think of prostitution as a woman using her feminine wiles to get what she wants, Isn't that what Eve did to get Adam to eat the forbidden fruit
