The oldest profession in the world: Why they choose it?
Prostitution is the work of a prostitute who offers herself or himself for sexual intercourse to earn payment as an exchange for sexual services. It is normally in the form of money. Prostitutes may be involved in either heterosexual or homosexual activity. However, commonly it has been engaged by women with men as clients. They prefer to choose this profession rather than other jobs. A number of countries such as England and France have legalized prostitution as these countries use it to generate national income. Prostitution has not stopped after thousands of years and “Prostitution has been called the world’s oldest profession” (Soroptimist, 2007, p. 1). It has been around since the beginning of time and can be traced back to ancient civilization. The reasons why they choose prostitution can be classified into three components; chasing a life of absolute luxury, desperately having to do it and enjoy doing it for pleasure. (152 words)
