Thistype of prostitution is prevalent in Amsterdam , enticing passersby to enter houses of prostitution by prominently displaying the women in windows. Here's Weitzer's excellent description of window work, which pays women a low-to-moderate wage. Almost all of Amsterdam's window rooms are single occupancy, separating workers from each other. Some rooms are connected to a bathroom and kitchen shared by several workers, but the women spend most of their time by themselves in front of the windows.
The situation contrasts sharply with brothels, where workers can enjoy a party atmosphere and regular social contact with other providers, staff, and customers. These sex workers make initial contact with men at a bar or casino and then have sex at a separate location. In bars in Thailand, the Philippines, and the Dominican Republic, guys pay "bar fees" to leave a club with a worker and spend several days with her, Weitzer writes.
The guys often foreigners pay the women's expenses during that time, in an arrangement that often confers status on the prostitute. The women earn low-to-moderate salaries.
Streetwalkers earn relatively little money and are vulnerable to exploitation, Weitzer writes. Not surprisingly, they report less job satisfaction and get paid less than "indoor prostitutes" bar workers, brothel workers, or call girls. Streetwalking is also notoriously dangerous.
One study found prostitutes in Colorado Springs were 18 times more likely to be murdered than other women of a similar age. Another place in Asia where prostitution is legal is Hong Kong, which also forbids soliciting, causing or helping another person to be a prostitute, and living off the earnings of a prostitute.
However, there are no licensed brothels in Hong Kong, nor designated red-light areas. Wan Chai, on Hong Kong Island, has long been the unofficial red-light district, with bars and discos popular among Western clients, while Mong Kok in Kowloon is known more among locals for its illegal brothels and streetwalkers.
In , Hong Kong accounting sector lawmaker Kenneth Leung Kai-cheong suggested the government establish a legal red-light district to consolidate and confine the sex industry. Secretary for Security John Lee Ka-chiu rejected the suggestion, saying prostitution in the city was already under control.
He said setting up an official red light district would mean require big changes in government policy on the issue. Unlike Singapore, Hong Kong does not outlaw classified ads for prostitution or websites that allow clients to make appointments. Despite the existence of licensed brothels in Singapore, many women still end up working illegally, including in an unknown number of unlicensed brothels. Some have even been found operating in public housing estates, The Straits Times reported last month.
There is clearly a demand for prostitutes in Singapore, Ho says, and women keep coming to the city from nearby countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and China. Project X says there are many informal sex workers who work only occasionally, making it difficult to estimate the number. Two years ago, police arrested more than 5, unlicensed sex workers — mostly foreign women visiting on tourist visas.
Lainez says many are poorly educated with low-paying jobs back home. They came to Singapore for sex work to earn a higher income. Singaporean Jaafar falls into the same category. She failed to complete the Primary School Leaving Examination and has limited job options. She entered the sex trade 12 years ago when she needed to support her children after getting divorced.
They should be able to ply their trade safely, without harassment, and with dignity, Harrigan says. After all, says Jaafar: Skip to main content.
