Does a bad economic state force women into prostitution or do they enjoy their work?

    laziness and/or the need to finance a drug habit is what causes most women (in the U.S., anyway), to sink to prostitution. At least the streetwalker type. Dunno if they enjoy it. But they must like it better than a real job, eh?

    The highbrow, movie star-looking whores (Park Avenue call girl types) do if for the dough. And it's big dough.

    Most women do it more out of desperation than for quick cash. They are usually drug addicts or are forced into it by pimps. Often young girls who run away from home get "protection" from pimps and then have to work to pay it off. Most prostitutes also have mental heath issues or have come from abusive homes. The same profile fits a lot of male prostitutes too.

    Very few women would chose that career simply because it pays better than cleaning. It is an extremely dangerous and degrading situation to be in. The only type that might say they enjoy their work are the high end escort services that work for well heeled clients and are treated well. This is a very small minority of prostitutes. I doubt any make any where near $4000 an hour.

    No, just a bad drugs situation There is always a good economic state for prostitution, that's why it's the world's oldest profession. I think those who are determined to work in the sex industry do enjoy it (brothels, porn stars, etc) but a lot just need money and will do anything to get it.

    Women who are involved with prostitution by choice are almost certainly doing it for economic reasons. I don't think there is much evidence to suggest that they see their work as a "calling." A gay male friend of mine was involved as an "escort" for a few years. He used to tell me that he really, really liked sex, so this was a way for him to have a lot of sex and also get paid for it. I never really knew whether to believe him or not. But I'm doubting that you would find a woman espousing such a view.

    Nothing forces anyone into doing anything, there are ALWAYS options,l ALWAYS but some choose another way for whatever reasons. I doubt very much women enjoy being prostitutes but the money is good and I think a lot of them are drug addicts.

    Most of them are working to feed a drugs habit, not their kids. Mostly in the West it's not forced by economic necessity anymore. It is driven by necessity in the developing world.

    A need for a lot of money forces women into prostitution. You dont make 4000$ an hour cleaning that I guarantee you.

    Woman do not enjoy having sex with men that they are not attracted to/in love with.... it's a myth that many men believe but it has no truth in it whatsoever. I find it disgusting when goodlooking men approach me sexually. I just think about their aged bodies, and how much sweat they have, and how smelly and disrespectful and horny they are and I don't imagine myself at all being with them... no matter how much they talk about sex.

    most of the worlds prostitutes are sold into it. they have no choice. they are slaves. it is precisely for economic reasons that a mother or father would sell their children into this life.
