Not every prostitute deals with dangerous clientele. However, while prostitution is illegal, the majority of prostitutes must work for less financially stable clients which are statistically more prone to violent behavior. The rich clientele have been known for sexually and physically assaulting prostitutes but more often than not, the rich are more afraid of arrests than the less financially stable clientele (Datta and Post 28-30).

For many centuries prostitution has been present in our world. Since ancient times, there have been people selling, buying and controlling the sex industry. Although this is one of the longest living businesses in history, it is still one of the most misunderstood by the public. Anti-prostitution campaigners try and bring in issues of morals and false facts to scare us out of legalizing something most people do on a daily basis. Luckily, there are plenty of facts that prove otherwise and the issue of morals affects no one but the people who are involved.
But those plus the streets are where people are sold most often. There are many reasons and causes for sex trafficking. The factors behind sex traffic... ... middle of paper ... ...ll to hide it. Even though there are laws prohibiting sex trafficking, there are way too many causes to get it to be gone for good.

If a prostitute were abused, she would not go to the police for fear of being prosecuted (Perer 826). Many think that if the Johns (clients) were prosecuted instead of the prostitutes, the prostitutes would be more willing to get help (Perer 823). Another aspect that both parties agree on is sex trafficking. The bigger the sex work business becomes, the more women are sold into human trafficking (Perer 830; Sanders, O’Neill, and Pitcher 67). Human trafficking sparks a completely new category of prostitution.
With only the purchase of sex being illegal, johns can be rightfully punished by the law and the sex industry wouldn’t go underground. While people think that sex workers, because they create the opportunity, should be punished, it is often the men who initiate sex with prostitutes. It is the johns who pay sex workers to “to submit to his sexual demands as a condition of 'employment'" (Jeffreys 260). Yet despite this, most police officers focus the attention on prostitutes, rather than the johns and as a result of that, citizens mimic the attitudes of the law enforcers. An unfair balance is created between the number of sex workers arrested versus the number of johns who are arrested.
Now, as we have entered into the 21st century AD, prostitution is still a part of modern society. The fact speaks for itself: as there will always be a demand for the services that it provides, prostitution will exist in some form no matter what. The National Task Force on Prostitution suggests that over one million people in the US have at some point of their lives worked as prostitutes, with 4 years being an average length of their career. The above mentioned number equals to 1% of American women. (8) Many nations reconsidered prostitution as something necessarily evil and against the law by legalizing it.
Prostitutes are convicted if caught for exercising their profession. However, why are they being punished? Most prostitutes do not choose that life but are enrolled in it by pimps who take advantage of the unfortunate circumstances of young women’s lives. It seems as if U.S. law thought of prostitutes as “happy hookers” (Kay 2013). The true problems lay in the pimps and the whole sex commerce, not in the prostitutes themselves; prostitutes are merely victims.
The statics from findingjustice.org states that “one in ten men in the world have purchased a prostitute”. Many individuals find prostitution as a derogatory profession because prostitutes can be deemed as home wreckers, women who are sex crazed, and disease spreaders. Writer of the NY Daily News, Jason Itzler differentiates the meaning of love and sex, for he states that prostitution is not morally wrong and it would become a respectable form of work that offers good pay and safer working conditions for prostitutes if made legal. All places where prostitution is legal and regulated are under the roof of a brothel. If regulated under government digression then the brothel is required to go through safety checks just like any other legitimate business.
