ABSTRACT:
Sex work is considered to be an oldest profession which has its roots in almost every society. Sex work not only fulfilled the desires of male but also generated revenue for the state and in turn got the protection from the state (Prakash, H., 2013). However, the tag of a “profession” itself does not save the sex workers, both male and female from the problems associated with the profession. The notion that sex work is a “work” is an attempt to make the harm invisible. Before becoming sex worker, the sex workers face financial, social and marital problems which force them to accept sex work as a profession. After entering into the profession, their social and economic problems continue and along with these problems they face lot of health problems as well due to the nature of the profession. Therefore, there is a need to highlight the problems which sex workers encountered during the course of their profession.
