Prostitution and false glamor: these are its real effects

A friend confessed to me that years ago the possibility of practicing prostitution for a season while studying had been raised. It was the time of the unveiling and the long-awaited sexual freedom in Spain and the practice of sex, even paid, seemed a liberating option. “Fortunately, I couldn’t do it,” she explained to me, frightened, after investigating the reality of prostitution.

It is the glamor of hell that some fall into and the vast majority are pushed and forced. In the age of social media, millions of websites with sexual and pornographic content are increasingly sexually exchanged of all kinds, including sexting, posting images of sexual or nude content, and flirting with many. teens with exposure of your body in digital media. economic benefits for this, easily get into pornography possible gateway to prostitution.

And this is it the merit of prostitution has been, in many cases, to camouflage its psychosocial effects with the packaging of a marketing associated with glamor.

The psychological and social effects of prostitution

The data I present comes from serious research and scientific work. Let’s look at the reality of this false glamor of prostitution.

1. Exposure to abusive situations

86% of women find themselves in prostitution they are physically, mentally and verbally and / or sexually abused in his childhood

2. Violence, abuse and sexual degradation

Some studies have shown that among female prostitutes, they are up to 200 times more likely to die violently than in the normal population.

3. Presence of child trafficking

The average age of initiation into prostitution is between 13 and 14 years (American data). The general and majority landscape is made up of women and girls who have been abused and sexually exploited from childhood and who are discouraged by a mixture of violence and use of apparent glamor.

4. Vulnerability of women

90% of female prostitutes in Spain they are imported as goods from countries in East America, Africa, East or South. Most are victims of poverty, some are illiterate. This condition is not only the cause of their victimization, but also the consequence of being trapped and unable to escape. Many do not speak our language after several years here.

    5. Sexually transmitted diseases

    Logically in an activity where an average of 20 to 30 intercourse is performed per day, where many clients request unprotected sex and where the exchange of bodily fluids is inevitable, including saliva, urine, semen and feces.

    6. Adverse health effects

    Gynecological disorders, chronic pelvic pain and forced abortions they are common among women who have up to 30 sexes a day and one can get an idea of ​​the delicacy of sex shoppers. In Germany, it is very standardized, legal and advertised as an additional service, sexual relations with pregnant women up to 6 months, even in groups, with serious consequences not only for the woman but obviously for the fetus.

    7. Eating disorders

    People who fall into prostitution live without a schedule, who can ‘work’ all night and get up at noon or when a client arrives, which means this causes itching between services and the consumption of caffeine or other stimulants without having regular breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    8. Alcohol and other drug addiction

    These addictions allow them to survive the “anesthetized” situation in addition to allowing greater control by the mafias.

    9. 75% are violated

    Most are victims of extreme physical violence. 95% are attacked and physical assault or forced abortions are inherent in their activity, Something normalized and trivialized by many: “if they are there, it will be because they like it”.

    10. Psychological violence

    Insults and harassment are part of this world where men pay to use and humiliate a woman. The self-esteem of a woman who is beaten and insulted on a daily basis ends up being completely destroyed.

      11. Depression, anxiety, irritability and insomnia are common

      Anxiety and depression are a logical consequence of the situation of vulnerability, abuse and violence and are often the source of other symptoms and disorders.

      12. Pathological relationships

      Due to the stigma and reality of prostitutionThere is a distance with families that is often shrouded in lies and a tendency towards isolation. Over time, they end up interacting only with coworkers, cool guys, and clients until they develop a pathological relationship with the men they see through the lens of their relationship with clients.

      Most have already learned to treat men from their childhood, when they start prostitution or sexual abuse.

      13. Tendency to Isolation and Lack of Expectations

      The continued practice of prostitution becomes a well of destruction and degradationadationAs people who work by offering their bodies feel that they are not good for anything else. Most are relocated from the club every few weeks, making their social relationships and roots difficult.

      14. Possibility of developing post-traumatic stress disorder

      Up to 68% of them suffer from it. It is a very serious disorder, with a higher rate of suffering than veterans and more in those who are in clubs than in those on the street

      15. Possibility of developing dissociative disorders

      Dissociative disorders such as depersonalization disorder cause persistent periods of distancing or feeling like an outside observer. These serious disorders, along with drug addiction, are a way to relieve pain and anxiety, as well as torture and even slow death.

      Suicide also becomes an escape routeAlthough the mafias are responsible for maintaining the threats to them and their families, as well as the hope of escaping, settling their debts or leaving this world to fulfill the dream of a normal life.

      Isn’t that always the case?

      Some will say: But it will only happen to some, there are a lot of prostitutes and escorts who live very well, as it appears in some TV shows and other media.

      The reality is that prostitution is linked to violence, abuse, the position of superiority of man over woman, A situation of gender abuse since more than 99% of clients are men.

      It should be noted that the data presented are obtained from the average number of women who engage in prostitution. I might have to say on another level, where all of this doesn’t affect him, but over time the first rape will come, as well as the psychological or physical abuse; estrangement from the family can also be gradual, When it is not a direct rejection or a difficulty in maintaining a relationship or a family relationship.

      A woman can say she chose this kind of lifeBut that does not make it worthy to be used by many men, to risk their life and health. It may be that a strong young woman or a man, too, thinks that she is above it all, and is curious about this world. For them in particular, this article and to show data that many are hiding, given the power of the sex industry.
