In today's society if you see a woman walking a corner in dirty or exotic clothing then immediately you think “prostitute” and that's she's beneath you. Images of a dirty and sick lifestyles race through your head, well that just a stereotype. The reality of prostitution is drugs, abuse, and dehumanization. Whore, slut, and sex worker are the popular terms to describe a female who is in prostitution, the stereotypes that associated with these names are nothing compared to the reality of there purposes; whore is a word for prostitute, slut has nothing to do with prostitution because a slut was just a lazy woman and now the word has turned into a promiscuous girl...not prostitute.

There was a concerned discourse about the city on whether the act of prostitution was right or wrong. London usually showed a humane attitude towards prostitutes and maintained justice for the women who choose this profession. Life for a prostitute meant engaging in the midnight festivities that often resulted in daylight miseries.

This “bad” image we put on them can explain that why it contains negative feeling means to most publics. At the same time, some argue that sex worker is a kind of jobs and those involved in, their rights should be protected by the society, by law (Delacoste & Alexander, 1987). As a result, there are different responses, different countries or regions, toward prostitution. How is the situation in Hong Kong? Is there any enhancement if changes being made?
