Re: Economic reasons force 400 women to sex work

It’s not only women who are prostituting for money, from other accounts, men are in on the spoils of sex tourism that is a part of this overall picture. Transgender, homosexual and young boys too are caught up in this apparently. 

Perhaps we are going down the path that some Asian countries like Thailand for example, have. All we need is a casino and some flashing neon lights and we’ll be booming!
