Prostitutes are exposed to sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and AIDS. Some of their customers demand unprotected sex and depending on the offer that the prostitute is given, they carry the deal without having protection as a priority. Janice Raymond indicated that “... ... middle of paper ... ...le it is true to say that not all prostitutes are exposed to brutality, sexually transmitted diseases and psychological problems, the act of making prostitution illegal will cause financial instability to the traffickers since they will be denied the right of choosing their source of income.

He removes her self and those qualities that define her as an individual, and for him she becomes sexualized body parts. She acts the part of the thing he wants her to be.” Prostitutes often start believing they are commodities because that is how men treat them and it causes them to have mental issues. Women that are raped feel worthless and like they are no longer important to society. By becoming a prostitute, women have a very high chance of becoming a victim of domestic violence.
