Legal Prostitution: One of an 8 part Composition by Eastern European prostitutes in London

Part 2:

The public’s knowledge about sex workers and pimps is based primarily on media stereotypes, at one extreme, we see examples of prostitutes with hearts of gold in movies like Taxi Driver, while at the other extreme we see images of black fishnet stockings, knee-length boots, and drug abuse. Because of the general ignorance and misperceptions about sex-work, there is need to show relevant aspects from inside the industry.

A prostitute who also goes by many other names can be described as a person who exchanges sexual favours for money, drugs, or other desirable commodities while a pimp is one who controls the actions and lives off the proceeds of a prostitutes. There are various types of hookers starting from the independent high-class/corporate/elite sex worker living in a plush apartment in the city centre to the street walker touting passer byes on dimly lit streets.

Not all prostitution is controlled by a pimp, many sex workers advertise and work independently while others register with agencies to advertise and answer calls for them at a fee, It is sad to say however that the majority of the prostitution in any society is pimp controlled. When hookers work for a pimp, they are paid a fraction of what they earn while where and how they work is controlled.

In the pimps world, recruitment is the main component of their business model, Pimps recruit people of all types and ages but will usually keep away from minors, in part due to fears of being arrested. Pimps appeal to sex workers’ emotional dependencies and economic needs and will promise material comforts among other things, these continued forms of coercion and fraud that include feigning romantic interest make the prostitutes approach friends and other people to join their sex work ring under the pimp.

Pimps will usually impose various rules on hookers and the most common are:
Drugs and alcohol: Employees using hard drugs are typically unreliable and a danger to the business.

Type of customers : Younger punters are not a favourite as they may engage in drug use, be rough, commit robbery, leave without paying, or are pimps scouting for new employees etc, etc, etc

In a lot of the cases the pimps double up as drug peddlers and use their less popular hookers to push their drugs, this is a double standard because when a sex worker supplies a client with drugs, the punter usually wants the hooker to share the drugs with them while getting intimate, in cases were the sex-worker joins in the drug taking, they easily become drug addicts who quickly fall out of favour with the pimp because of the new habit and unreliability the habit causes.

prostitution and drug abuse seem to be associated together but this is possibly due to the fact that prostitution is primarily illegal, drug taking punters know that if they wanted a fix its easier and safer to find a prostitute to get them for you.
