What drives prostitution

Four sex workers recall the circumstances that forced them into this profession.

Four sex workers recall the circumstances that forced them into this profession.

ISLAMABAD: Poverty is the major reason people get into prostitution, said Aleem Baig, President of Gender Reproductive Health Forum. A survey conducted by the organisation in 2002 revealed that there were around 20,000 sex workers active in Islamabad, with private businesses operating in almost every sector of the city.

“A few months ago, Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani promised that sex workers will be given jobs and a monthly stipend of Rs2500, but that has not happened to date,” said Baig.

Advisor to Prime Minister on Women Development, Yasmeen Rehman, said that being an Islamic state, the government wanted to abolish prostitution from the country, however, “Nothing can be done unless they [sex workers] approach the government and demand their rights collectively”.

The 28-year-old dancer and sex worker Shehla told the Express Tribune that all she wanted to do was to quit and lead a normal life, but could not afford to. “My past is my curse; I have no way out,” she said as she wiped a tear from her cheek.

“The issue of sex workers in Pakistan is a taboo and has never been discussed openly,” said Executive Director for Women’s Organization for Rights and Development Aqsa Khan.

“Since Pakistan’s inception, no NGO or government organization has worked for the rights and rehabilitation of sex workers; they are only taken into consideration when talking about HIV/AIDS,” she accused.

Khan said Islamabad sees its fair share of prostitution but most of it is carried out in secret. She added that although the trend of “red-light sex workers” was decreasing, the sex business had found a new ally for itself in the internet.

Shehla, originally from Bhawalpur, came to Islamabad after her marriage. But happy her marriage was not, as she was forced to live alongside a man who cheated on her and abused her. When the police raided their house and found drugs that her husband used to peddle on streets, she was taken into custody alongside him. She was convicted and sent to prison.

It was her sister, Noor, who contacted her after her sentence and took her to a house. It was here that Shehla was introduced to prostitution for the first time. “What else could I have done? My family left me, my husband cheated on me, I had no place to go and no money,” she said in her defence.

Noor, her sister, has a story of her own to tell. Narrating her ordeal, Noor said she came to Islamabad to earn an “honest living”.

Discouraged by the lack of jobs, one of her friends introduced her to a female sex worker known as “Aunty”, who hired her as a dancer.

While performing in a dance club, a nephew of a well-known politician fell in love with her and the two got married. “After my marriage I left dancing, but his family did not accept me. Soon afterwards my husband left me, leaving me with no other option but to resort to prostitution,” said Noor.

Another sex worker, Jiya, wanted to be a model but ended up becoming a club dancer.

She was originally from Multan and came to Islamabad to get married. Her husband, who used to arrange her dance shows, later forced her into prostitution to boost the ‘family income’.

“When I got pregnant, my husband insisted I get an abortion, which I refused,” said Jiya. Her husband abandoned her when she was unable to dance in her pregnant state.

After her son’s birth, her financial conditions forced her to resume prostitution, which has taken its toll on her mental health, as she suffers from deep bouts of depression. “All I wanted was a decent life and a small family,” she sobbed as she recalled the circumstances that forced her into prostitution.

Naina, a graduate, was forced into prostitution after her husband died, leaving her to provide for their four children and her frail father-and-law.

“I wanted to get a job. I tried my luck everywhere,” she said. But her deteriorating financial conditions got the better of her. “My children and father-in-law do not know that I work as a sex worker. I told them I work at a parlour,” Naina told The Express Tribune. Names of the sex workers have been changed to protect their identity

    Neither the Chief Justice nor the Government can do anything about these people. It is only the Society that will have to come up to eradicate it. We have harnessed this profession by ourselves, the lust of most of us has made this happen. Now is the time for all of us to pay back. We should at least try to accept them as normal citizens and give them proper employment opportunities so that they can earn their living

    But, it is not that easy for all of us. There should be a way that these people be brought back to the main stream of lifeRecommend

    thats saddening indeed. Poverty do play a major role here but there are other factors as well, i would rate frustration another one of them while media (especially) bollywood is adding the fuel in this fire. All the stupid dances and culture presented leaves the youth freaking around badly. Frankly, some of my friends knew girls that are way to rich but frustration is causing them to dive into this evil. Indian movies, Pornographic sites all should be stopped once and for all..

    For me, If islam is implemented in its true colors and women are helped to overcome there financial crisis, plus a ban on indecent contents can sort this problem out. Frustration through media should be blocked ASAP otherwise we will end up in a nation only willing to fulfill its most pleasant desires. Recommend

    My question is: why should these people be treated as a special case?

    Look, a dacoit involved in snatching mobile phones; a thief involved in robbing houses; murderer involved in serial killing; a prostitute involved in making money from her body – all of them are in the same category. Now, if we count them all, their numbers seems to be very much. Second, these are the part of every society in every country of this world. I bet no one has stopped a prostitute to prepare a resume and keep trying in to offices like every other unemployed male/female samples of this population. But the thing is, they never tried or never had remained consistent in their search for a reasonable white-collar job. A reason for this is: all of them are getting paid very very well. Prostitutes, dacoits, theifs, corrupt officers, burglars, serial killers – this is the sample of Pakistani population whose average daily income is far above a normal Pakistani.

    Therefore, we should not categorize or particularize on the issue of prostitutes. These miscreants are free to do whatever they want to do, and they have already selected a ‘well-paying’ profession for them. period.Recommend

    If poverty was the issue why women have resorted to prostitution than we must look at those western countries who are much more affluent, and in these very countries prostitution is much more rampant. Why ?
    This is where religion MUST come in to educate our masses socially and morally rather than exploiting them politically!

    Plus, Why nobody talks about the sickness of the males who resort to using such women ? We must realize that such display of immorality is on both sides.

    In short we must address the social and the moral reasons too, rather than only talking about the financial aspects of such acts.Recommend

    Sehrish you’ve taken a bold step of highlighting this issue; which is good. But how we can solve this problem? we must come up with the solution.

    Almost all these girls have same stories, not even a single said that she work to fulfill her desires or some thing like that. This sin can easily remove from our society if our society accept these girls. But Alas! our society don’t.

    There should be some specific NGO for these type of girls. who support them financially and help them to get a respectable job.

    For sex workers I must say that your decision for doing sex was made in bit hurry, and due to weak Iman. Anyways Do Touba and pray for your self, have a strong believe in Almighty Allah. He will surely do best for you.Recommend

    As an urban-half-decent-internet-enabled sex worker a woman can make upwards of Rs.30000 every month after paying all her “over heads”. Thats certainly more than an average engineer makes in a month. If the lady taps the right niche she can make more than the average GM of a large corporation… a Rs2500 stipend… its a joke… its easy money and there has, is and always will be a market for it…

    @ KB from Rotterdam – The Red Mosque Brigade took some inititatives which the masses did not like particularly…. so dont ask the mullahs or blame them for inaction…. especially from Rotterdam…

    Its the oldest profession and everybody hates it but “some” from within the “everbody” also relish in partaking of its services…. what are we to do about it??

    For all the People who believe that “Poverty is no excuse for Prostitution”…

    Have you ever starved yourself for more than a day?
    Have you ever seen your son/daughter or your wife/husband or your father/mother starve?

    There is nothing I wouldn’t do for my family. Would I sell my body? um yeah, I would even sell my soul to make sure my family doesn’t go through any starvation ever.

    I am sure this is the case for most of you as well, and I am guessing this might be the reason why some People go into prostitution.

    Yes, there are other respectable ways to make money, but lets get real, have you seen the unemployment rate? I graduated from one of the best Universities in Pakistan in May and I had to wait two months before I was even called for an interview.

    Now I understand that white collar unemployment is different from blue collar unemployment.

    But speaking about blue collar employment opportunities, how many does Pakistan provide for women without any education?

    the first thought that comes to my mind is a house maid. Sewing clothes in factories with deplorable conditions is probably another one? I cant seem to think of anything else.

    Maybe the government should provide job opportunities for women who lack education in the country and then start targeting prostitution?

    Economically speaking,

    There will always be a supply when there is a demand. And lets face it guys, there will always be a demand. Recommend

Yes it is true poverty may lead many women in our country in to such business but there are some families i know who are well off but their daughters are in this business, just because of their personal interest.

    To all those people who claim “religious non-education” is the cause of this evil, I pity you. Mr Ali is right. Try being a woman in this country who has been thrown out of her house, and has nowhere to go. Women are raped day and night, honorable women. They starve, try to protect their honor, get raped, and once they are physically, mentally and spiritually broken, they are left with no choice but to start making out some money out of the very profession that mocks them.

    To all those people who say “can’t they be house maids”? Have YOU hired a prostitute as your house maid? Will your family allow it? Have you not pinched your nose every time you’ve seen a prostitute?

    Stop making religion an excuse for everything. Hardly any of us blame the men who use these women, or become their pimps. All those saying lack of religious teachings are to blame, and that these women don’t try hard enough to get jobs, or they should become housemaids are HYPOCRITES. We have no shame. We are so excellent at giving lectures but when we’re faced with those very same choices, we back off. Recommend

    Writing an article on prostitution is a bold step, rarely done, kudos.
    The propensity of humans for sex cannot be a crime.
    Pushing women into prostitution by others and exploitation is criminal.
    The stigma of social repercussion is another oppressive burden that must be addressed.
    Providing sex service is not stealing or robbing. It could be as important as a hair-cut or taxi service.
    In Pakistan, where joblessness is rampant, allowing willing sex-workers to operate in a safe environment is necessary. Prostitution should be legalized and workers in the trade must establish themselves as role-models by contributing time and money towards important issues like poverty, health and education.

    The issue of prostitution is of historic nature. But here we are discussing why it is so much deep rooted in our society. Mostly it is greed for money backed by men and equally protected by Police. Some do it for enjoyment in the higher society and also to advance their business empires through arranging private parties. As far as poor women who fall in this trap is only due to the fault of their own parents who do not care what their kids are up to. Surely there is lot of money in this profession and some are also exported abroad, specially in Middle East and Europe. Flesh trade is the most lucrative trade according international report after arms and drugs trade.Recommend

    Can there be an article on theft and robbery being done as an excuse to poverty too ?? Well, I sure see that coming.
    To those of you who think only poverty is the main cause? Its a full grown profession and they probably earn more than many with a 9 to 5 job. Open your minds to accept that countries with the highest standards of living on this planet, countries like Norway and the rest of the Scandinavian countries, whats gotten into them then? Why the large number of prostitutes there?
    Its here that religious education can and must act as a social and moral uplifting factor for our generation.

    Discouraged by the lack of jobs, one of her friends introduced her to a female sex worker known as “Aunty”, who hired her as a dancer.

    It was their decisions , how were they ‘forced into prostitution’ . There are more jobless men than women, more suicidal men than women .

    Assalam-o-Allaikum Warahmatullah.Most of the prostitutes are not doing so willingly.They are doing so due to compulsions.For instance,unemployment,poverty and hunger.There are few prostitutes who are professional and love prostitution and especially some of our politicians who demand young girls on special occasions like Eid,Happy New Year Night and Chand Nights,etc etc. and professional prostitutes provide them young college and university girls for their strong relations with them.Professional prostitutes have strong network in Pakistan and relations with highly ranked police and other departments’ officers and bureaucrats and they provide young and beautiful girls on their demands and they have well-furnished residences in porch areas.In other words some our politicians,highly ranked officers esp police officers and bureaucrats are the main cause of prostitution in Pakistan because most of the prostitution places are near police stations in Pakistan.Recommend

    Ms. Wasif, a bold article indeed. Kudos to you for writing it and the Tribune for publishing it.

    A number of comments address what drives prostitution. It may seem so obvious that it escaped everyone here including the author: Men. Whether its male, hijra or female prostitutes, their clients are nearly always men. Its a demand driven trade. Usually supply catches up with the demand. Of course both proponents and antagonists of “poverty drives prostitution” are partially right. My feeling is that poverty (and desperation) drives many women (and men and hijras) into prostitution. What keeps them in it is the relatively easier money. After all in any number of surveys from Pakistan, the average monthly wages for a female prostitute is around RS. 10,000. Of course most such surveys are among lower socioeconomic scale prostitutes.

    Just a few facts about prostitution in Pakistan. Firstly, it is highly unlikely that there are 20,000 prostitutes in Islamabad. That would mean 1 for every 8-10 men out in the city. Considering what we know, these would be too many to be sustained for that many clients.

    Moreover, research and surveillance by the national AIDS program between 2004 and 2007 suggests that there may be around 200,000 prositutes nationwide, just under half of these are either men or hijra.

    First of all thanks for writing on this social issue still being considered as Taboo and people don’t want to talk and write about it. Secondly your article has started a debate with in people from different thinking, approach and backgrounds. I am also glad to see that youth is reading such articles and commenting about it but there is lack of “action” to mitigate such social problems and issues.

    Its a social issue which also highlights many cross-cutting other issues of society. People especially youth should act positively to address such issues and the consequencies creating such issues at all levels and to be the part of the activities, strategies, policies etc. to mitigate and alleviate these social evils from the society.
