The world of prostitutes is a prickly topic, but I think most of the peaople are interested in it, so let’s read about the types of prostitutes in India, Philippines and Amsterdam. The oldest profession in the world, as they call it, has always been the subject of debate. It is not just the morality of it that is being discussed, but the legal status sex work should have.
When decisions are made on such matters, it should be done having in mind, primarily and most importantly, the experiences and the perspective of those whom the decision will affect the most, in this case, sex workers. The wrong approach to sex work many countries take nowadays has made sex workers one of the most marginalized groups of society. They are the epitome of discrimination and dehumanization. We have to be conscious at all times, however, that human rights sex workers are entitled to by their very nature of their being human, should be a priority over any existing moral dilemma over what sex workers indulge in.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three types of prostitutes from their list.
The first one is Brothel prostitute. Sex workers in brothels are less vulnerable to exploitation than those in the streets. If the brothel is licensed, it provides extra security for sex workers working there. As Weitzer writes, these can include sauna and massage parlors too. This is a common type of prostitute in India, the Netherlands, and the Philippines as well. The second type is Escort agency prostitute. This type of sex worker is reached via an escort agency and it is one of the pretty common types of prostitutes in India, Philippines and Amsterdam. The agency arranges a meeting between a client and a worker either at client’s house, in a hotel room or at worker’s residence. They give a cut of their earning to the agency. At last, but not least let’s see the Bar prostitute. Clients are solicited in bars, whereas services are provided elsewhere. This type of worker is very common in the Philippines where “bar fees” are being paid so the client could leave a club with a worker.
