The girls were snorting coke in the dressing room, and the bouncers seemed more malicious and oversexed than the customers. I did not go back.
I remembered a roommate I had in university who signed up as an escort through an online service. I drove two hours to his house, white-knuckled in anticipation of what I was about to do. He was middle aged, pretty average-looking — balding, in OK shape.
I don't want to seem flippant when I talk about the sex. There was nothing special about it except for the fact that it was the first time in my young life that I was literally prostituting myself. In retrospect, my opinion of prostitution is that it is fine if you have straightened it out in your head as to why you are doing it and what you get out of it, but you are risking your safety and your health.
Can you charge a price high enough to compensate for that? And the sex was nothing I remember anything about. He left his television muted on CNN the whole time. My biggest concern was that I had very little experience and that it would show I had only had sex a couple of times in my life.
My next worry was that I would not be able to fill a full two hours with sexual entertainment. It was not that hard. Most people are easy enough to talk to, and once the sex is over it is just pillow talk and back rubs. After two months, I started scheduling dates with men and then not showing up.
I was starting to get real about why I was having sex with men for money. I had been feeling rejected by a former lover, and I was angry about being in debt and was discovering that my university degree was essentially worthless.
I felt like being destructive. My last job scared me out of it for good. He was a short bald man with a big spare tyre and smelled of cigarettes.
He asked if he needed to wear a condom about half of the men asked this. I put the condom on him, and then he spun me around and pushed me up against the dresser. The force of this manoeuvre was unexpected. He tried to get me to have anal sex, and I had to struggle to avoid it. It was starting to feel more like a violation than a situation that I was in control of. It was a wake-up call, though.
I have always had confidence in my physical strength and my wits to keep myself safe, but just a small taste of how quickly I might get overcome if I wasn't on my guard was what made me decide to quit. I was a year-old virgin when I first visited a prostitute. I've always been shy and a bit of a computer geek, and somehow I missed out on opportunities at school and university that might have got my sex life off to a start. Once I graduated I ended up in an IT job, full of other single male geeks.
It was only when I hit 30 that I started to worry about the other things missing from my life. At that point, my age and lack of experience were a major worry. I was tempted by online dating, but knew that anyone I might meet would be more sexually experienced than me, and this became a major stumbling block. Websites and forums are what I do, and mostly how I interact with other people, so it didn't take me long to find forums devoted to escort work.
I researched diligently, read up on the pros and cons, and the dangers, health and otherwise, of seeing escorts. The escorts posting sounded genuine, even relatively normal, and not the junkies I'd expected. I made up my mind to go for it. It was still nearly a year before my first experience. I chose a more mature woman, as I felt it would be easier, somehow, to confess my inexperience to her.
My performance was as you might expect from a first-timer, but she was sympathetic and understanding. She didn't clock-watch, and I enjoyed her company as much as the sexual activity. I left with a feeling of relief that I'd got it over with, that I was no longer a virgin. After that, I found other girls local to me. I've had some fantastic experiences and none of the girls have fitted the mould of trafficked eastern Europeans or drug addicts.
There was the single mum of 19, who was saving to put herself through a college course to get a professional qualification and she did, successfully, and gave up escorting to take a less-well-paid job in her chosen field.
There was the swinger, who had decided that if she was going to do it anyway, she might as well get paid for it. Overall, more of the experiences have been good than bad.
Most of the girls have been intelligent and good company and I put that down to the amount of effort I put in to selection. I'm generally very careful about who I choose; the less successful experiences have always come when I rushed a decision.
My plan was for a short-term fix, a start towards a normal life and a way of catching up with experiences I should have had 10 years ago. It's worked so well, that it's becoming a lifestyle choice. I think I prefer it this way. I met my wife as a first year in college, and we were married sometime later. I've had one relationship in my life, and while it's not boring or empty of sex, I was tempted by the ads in the back of the weekly arts paper in my town.
My first appointment was nerve-racking. Since, I've had sessions with roughly 25 different providers and had intercourse with about half. I have found few girls who "are into the work". Most aren't, and you can usually tell when you say hello. It could be the self-destructive nature of the visit. But, I keep doing it. Sometimes I go once a week. Sometimes once a month. Traffickers reportedly lure, drug, detain, or kidnap some North Korean women upon their arrival.
The women are then moved to cities farther away to subjected to forced prostitution in brothels or through internet sex sites, or compelled service as hostesses in nightclubs or karaoke bars.
Others offer jobs but subsequently force the women into prostitution. When Chinese authorities arrest these North Korean trafficking victims, they repatriate them.
North Korean authorities keep such repatriates in penal labour colonies, execute any Chinese-fathered babies of theirs "to protect North Korean pure blood " and force abortions on all pregnant repatriates not executed.
South Korean college girls have been sent by brokers to work as prostitutes in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia due to the popularity of the "Korean wave".
A massive ring of South Korean prostitutes serving Chinese men was busted in Macau in Some Korean women wear kiminos while working as prostitutes in Macau. In Macau many Japanese porn actresses work as prostitutes and their clients are rich Chinese men.
Mongolian women work as prostitutes in bars in Beijing,   such as Maggie's. In China, Eastern Europeans and Russians make up most of the white prostitutes. Bars in major Chinese cities offer blonde, blue-eyed Russian "hostesses". During the 19th century  and in contemporary times, Portuguese prostitutes have operated in Macau. Some Chinese triad members from Macau married Portuguese prostitutes before China took it back from Portugal, providing them with access to Portuguese citizenship.
By there were about White Russian prostitutes in Shanghai. Today, many European prostitutes in China market themselves as escorts to attract the attention of visiting businessmen and richer Chinese clients. They may work independently or through an escort agency and advertise their services through the internet. In Shanghai many Russian women work as prostitutes.
In Harbin there are Russian prostitutes and African students patronize them. China is a recipient of Vietnamese prostitutes. They provide sex mainly to Chinese men. Vietnamese women working as prostitutes in China have been trafficked from Vietnam through various means at the Guangxi border. On the Chinese border with Vietnam, in the Chinese town of Po-chai, a "Vietnamese girl market" made out of Vietnamese prostitutes offers sex to Chinese men exclusively and refuses service to Vietnamese men.
Every year, thousands of women from Kenya, Rwanda or Uganda are ending up in the brothels of China, Indonesia and Malaysia. Hong Kong and Macau are special administrative regions of China and subject to different laws: This has led to a higher incidence of prostitution in these regions than in mainland China.
Women travel from mainland China to Hong Kong and Macau in order to engage in the trade. There are also allegations of women being trafficked for the purpose. Elizabeth Wheeler Andrew — and Katharine Caroline Bushnell 5 February January 26, , who wrote extensively on the position of women in the British Empire, wrote about the Tanka inhabitants of Hong Kong and their position in the prostitution industry, catering towards foreign sailors.
The Tanka did not marry with the Chinese, being descendants of the natives, they were restricted to the waterways. They supplied their women as prostitutes to British sailors and assisted the British in their military actions around Hong Kong  The Tanka in Hong Kong were considered "outcasts" categorized low class.
Ordinary Chinese prostitutes were afraid of serving Westerners since they looked strange to them, while the Tanka prostitutes freely mingled with western men. The Tanka prostitutes were considered to be "low class", greedy for money, arrogant, and treating clients with a bad attitude, they were known for punching their clients or mocking them by calling them names.
The stereotype among most Chinese in Canton that all Tanka women were prostitutes was common, leading the government during the Republican era to accidentally inflate the number of prostitutes when counting, due to all Tanka women being included.
Tanka women were ostracized from the Cantonese community, and were nicknamed "salt water girls " ham shui mui in Cantonese for their services as prostitutes to foreigners in Hong Kong.
Tanka women who worked as prostitutes for foreigners also commonly kept a "nursery" Tanka girls specifically for exporting them for prostitution work to overseas Chinese communities such as in Australia or America, or to serve as a Chinese or foreigner's concubine.
A report called "Correspondence respecting the alleged existence of Chinese slavery in Hong Kong: The Manchu traveller Qi-yi-shi reported the presence of prostitution among Torghut and Khoshut women in the Karasahr area of Xinjiang in In late 19th and early 20th century Turpan , Islamic modesty meant that Muslim prostitutes would not bare their bodies to clients in the way that Chinese prostitutes did.
The only women in Xinjiang at that time not to wear headscarfs were prostitutes from the poorest social classes. Hunter noted that the poverty of the Turki Muslims Uyghurs resulted in them selling their daughters, and that the practice led to Xinjiang containing significant numbers of Turki prostitutes. Temporary marriage , in the form of the Sunni Muslim misyar marriage "traveller's marriage" contract, is a practice that has sometimes been used as a cover for a form of prostitution.
It allowed a man to marry a woman for a week or even a couple of days, with "the mulla who performs the ceremony arranging for the divorce at the same time". Such a marriage was forbidden by the Koran, and the Turki Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang called it a " marriage of convenience ".
After the restoration of Chinese rule in the late 19th century it was common for Chinese soldiers and civilians in the Yarkand area of Xinjiang, including high officials, to take temporary wives, often without a marriage ceremony. Most of the wives came from Khotan. When the Chinese returned to China proper, their wives were abandoned or sold to friends. The frequent marriages of Chinese men to Muslim Turki women in Xinjiang from occurred despite the fact that Islamic law forbids Muslim women from marrying non-Muslims, and that the Turki community considered such women to be prostitutes.
Some foreign commentators suggested that the women involved were motivated by poverty, as such marriages prevented the women from being subject to the tax on prostitution. Chinese police categorise prostitution practices according to a descending hierarchy of seven tiers, though this typology does not exhaust the forms of practices that exist. While they are all classified as prostitutes, the services they offer can be very different.
Within some tiers, for example, there is still some revulsion to the acts of anal sex and oral sex. In parallel with the wide range of backgrounds for prostitutes, male buyers of sex also come from a wide range of occupational backgrounds. According to the local police, in China there are seven categories of prostitutes: The first and second tiers have become the focus of heated public debate because they are explicitly linked to government corruption.
In theory, the "three accompaniments" are chatting, drinking and dancing with their clients. In practice, the "three accompaniments" more often refers to dancing with, drinking with, and being publicly groped by their clients. These women often begin by allowing their clients to fondle or intimately caress their bodies, then if the client is eager, will engage in sexual intercourse. The lowest two tiers are characterised by a more straightforward exchange of sex for financial or material recompense.
They are neither explicitly linked to government corruption, nor directly mediated through China's new commercial recreational business sector. Women who sell sex in the lowest two tiers usually do so in return for small sums of money, food and shelter.
The PRC rejects the argument that prostitution is an unremarkable transaction between consenting individuals and that prohibition laws constitute a violation of civil liberties.
Overall, the PRC's legal response to prostitution is to penalise third party organisers of prostitution.
Participants in the prostitution transaction are still usually penalised according to the Chinese system of administrative sanctions , rather than through the criminal code. Until the s, the subject of prostitution was not viewed as a major concern for the National People's Congress. The PRC's first criminal code, the Criminal Law and the Criminal Procedure Law of made no explicit reference to the activities of prostitutes and prostitute clients. Prostitution only became a distinct object of statutory classification in the early s.
Responding to requests from the Ministry of Public Security and the All-China Women's Federation , the National People's Congress passed legislation that significantly expanded the range and scope of prostitution controls: The PRC's revised Criminal Law of retains its abolitionist focus in that it is primarily concerned with criminalising third-party involvement in prostitution.
For the first time the death penalty may be used, but only in exceptional cases of organising prostitution activities, involving additional circumstances such as repeated offences, rape, causing serious bodily injury , etc. The criminal code codified provisions in the Decision, establishing a system of controls over social place, specifically places of leisure and entertainment.
Government intervention in commercial recreation has found concrete expression in the form of the "Regulations concerning the management of public places of entertainment".
The provisions proscribe a range of commercial practices that characterise the activities of female "hostesses". As a result of strong calls to curb official corruption, during the mid to late s, a whole host of regulations were also introduced to ban government employees both from running recreational venues and from protecting illegal business operations. Following the introduction of these measures, the Chinese media has publicised numerous cases of government officials being convicted and disciplined for abusing their positions for prostitution.
Despite the position of the law, prostitutes are often treated as quasi-criminals by the Ministry of Public Security. Chinese police conduct regular patrols of public spaces , often with the support of mass-line organisations, using a strong presence as a deterrence against prostitution. Because lower tier prostitutes work the streets, they are more likely to be apprehended. Arrests are also more likely to be female sellers of sex than male buyers of sex. The overwhelming majority of men and women who are apprehended are released with a caution and fine.
In response, sellers and buyers of sex have adopted a wide range of tactics designed to avoid apprehension. The spatial mobility which is afforded by modern communications systems, such as mobile phones and pagers , and by modern forms of transportation, such as taxis and private cars , has severely reduced the ability of police to determine exactly who is engaged in acts of solicitation.
In tandem with the long-term task of developing preventative policing, the much more visible form of policing have been periodic police-led campaigns. Anti-prostitution campaigns have been accompanied by nationwide "media blitzes" to publicise the PRC's laws and regulations. This is typically followed by the announcement of arrest statistics, and then by sober official statements suggesting that the struggle to eliminate prostitution will be a long one.
The use of campaigns has been criticised for their reliance on an outdated "ideological" construction and an equally outmoded campaign formula of the s. The primary target of the PRC's prostitution controls throughout the s has been China's burgeoning hospitality and entertainment industry. These culminated in the "strike hard" campaigns of late and Whilst such campaigns may have failed to eradicate prostitution in toto , there is some evidence that regulation of China's recreational venues has helped to create a legitimate female service worker with the right to refuse to engage in practices repugnant to the "valid labour contract", as well as the right to be free from sexual harassment in the workplace.
Chinese police have, however, proven unable to effectively police higher tier prostitution practices. The nature of concubinage and second wife practices makes it more suited as a target of social action campaigns rather than conventional police action. Because of social changes, for example, Chinese police are now professionally constrained not to intrude on people's personal relationships in an overt or coercive manner.
In some areas, "massage parlours" on main streets are known full well to be brothels, but are generally left to function without hindrance, barring occasional raids. The illegal activities and problems associated with prostitution had led some to believe that there would be benefits if prostitution was legalized.
A number of international NGOs and human rights organisations have criticised the PRC government for failing to comply with the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women , accusing PRC of penalising and abusing lower tier prostitutes, many of whom are victims of human trafficking, while exonerating men who buy sex, and ignoring the ongoing problems of governmental complicity and involvement in the sex trade industry. States Parties shall take all appropriate measures, including legislation, to suppress all forms of traffic in women and exploitation of prostitution of women.
However, it does not advocate a system of legal and regulated prostitution. Central guidelines laid down by the CPC do not permit the public advocacy of the legalisation of prostitution. Arguments concerning legalisation are not absent, however, from mainland China.
On the contrary, some commentators contend that legally recognising the sex industry, in conjunction with further economic development, will ultimately reduce the number of women in prostitution. While prostitution controls have been relaxed at a local level, [ citation needed ] there is no impetus for legalisation at the central government level. Importantly, legalisation does not have much public support. These include the lack of independent trade unions , and limited access of individuals to civil redress with regard to occupational health and safety issues.
The spread of prostitution practices has introduced a large quantity of slang to the popular vocabulary. Prostitution is a popular subject in the media, especially on the internet. Typically news of police raids, court cases or family tragedies related to prostitution are published in a sensationalised form. A good example is news of an orgy between Japanese clients and Chinese prostitutes in , which partially because of anti-Japanese sentiment , was widely publicised and met with considerable outrage.
Prostitution has emerged as a subject of art in recent years, particularly in Chinese cinema. Li Shaohong 's film Blush begins in with the rounding up of prostitutes in Shanghai for " reeducation ", and proceeds to tell the story of a love triangle between two prostitutes and one of their former clients.
One of the prostitutes, Xiaoe, attempts to hang herself in reeducation. When asked to explain the reason, she says she was born in the brothel and enjoyed her lifestyle there - thereby challenging the government-sanctioned perspective of prostitution. The film Xiu Xiu: The Sent Down Girl was a dramatic portrayal of "invisible" prostitution in the rural China during the Maoist era. The independent film Seafood , by Zhu Wen , was an even more frank depiction of prostitution, this time of the complicated relationship between prostitution and law enforcement.
In the film, a Beijing prostitute goes to a seaside resort to commit suicide. Her attempt is intervened by a police officer who tries to redeem her, but also inflicts upon her many instances of sexual assault. Both films, whilst being critically acclaimed abroad, performed poorly in mainland China, only partially due to government restrictions on distribution. The depiction of prostitution in fiction, by comparison, has fared slightly better.
The most notable author on the subject is the young writer Jiu Dan , whose portrayal of Chinese prostitutes in Singapore in her novel Wuya , was extremely controversial.

The latter, again, used to be preyed upon—till quite recently His Excellency Governor Hcnnessy stopped this fiendish practice—by informers paid with Government money, who would first debauch such women and then turn round against them charging them before the magistrate as keepers of unlicensed brothels, in which case a heavy fine would be inflicted, to pay which these women used to sell their own children, or sell themselves into bondage worse than slavery, to the keepers of the brothels licensed by Government.
Whenever a sly brothel was broken up these keepers would crowd the sheriff's office of the police court or the visiting room to the Government Lock Hospital to drive their heartless bargains, which were invariably enforced with the weighty support of the Inspectors of brothels appointed by Government under the Contagious Diseases Ordinance.
The more this Ordinance was enforced the more of this buying and selling of human flesh went on at the very doors of Government offices. It is amongst these outcasts of Chinese society that the worst abuses of the Chinese system of domestic servitude exist, because that system is here unrestrained by the powers of traditional custom or popular opinion. This class of people, mustering perhaps here in Hong Kong not more than 2, persons, are entirely beyond the argument of this essay.
They form a class of their own, readily recognised at a glance. They are disowned by Chinese society, whilst they are but parasites on foreign society. The system of buying and selling female children and of domestic servitude with which they must be identified is so glaring an abuse of legitimate Chinese domestic servitude that it calls for corrective measures entirely apart from any considerations connected with the general body of Chinese society.
Japanese prostitutes called Karayuki-san , many coming from poor villages in Kyushu , started coming to Hong Kong in , and constituted the majority of Japanese residents of the territory in the s and s. There were 13 licensed Japanese brothels and prostitutes in Hong Kong in , with the figure reaching a peak of in Initially located in Central, the Japanese brothels later moved to Wan Chai.
Another major aspect of this trade is migrant sex workers. These sex workers are particularly visible in the Wan Chai district, catering mainly to Western businessmen and tourists. The sex workers operating in this area are predominantly Thai including transsexuals and Filipino. Ziteng campaigns for changes in the law, in particular the overturn of ban on brothels with more than one prostitute, since this prevents sex workers banding together for protection.
Many migrant sex workers arrive on a short tourist visa and try to make as much as money as possible by prostituting illegally before leaving Hong Kong, some returning frequently.
There are also "underground" organisations such as Thai restaurants and escort bars that arrange for foreign usually Thai and mainland girls to gain work in Hong Kong legally with an entertainment visa, but in fact they actually work in go-go bars in Wan Chai or other hostess clubs around Hong Kong.
Despite the more visible presence of Thai and Filipino sex workers in Hong Kong, the majority of migrant sex workers who come to Hong Kong are from mainland China. It is reported that with RMB10,—20,, mainland Chinese girls would normally secure a three-month visa.
The necessity to make money quickly also means that the sex workers are more likely to take risks. Many mainland girls advertise their services on websites where they put their pictures, contact numbers and service charges.
Prices are lower than for girls who target the tourist hotels, variations in price being a product of location, with those working within the corridor formed by Nathan Road being on the whole higher than that found in the towns of the New Territories. Prostitution in Hong Kong is legal, but subject to various restrictions, mainly intended to keep it away from the public eye. In practice, a woman on the street in certain areas well known for streetwalkers such as Sham Shui Po might well be arrested even if seen smiling at a male passer-by.
Time Out records it as the 36th most popular website in Hong Kong. Organized prostitution, in the form of directing "over another person for the purpose of This gives rise to the so-called "one-woman brothel" where one woman receives customers in her apartment, which is restricted by Section , which prohibits young persons to engage in prostitution.
Brothels are illegal, prostitution in private however is legal. So, many prostitutes in Hong Kong are "one for one" girls. To avoid the operation of an illegal brothel, triads will purchase apartments in certain apartment blocks — usually older tenements — for subdivision, and "sublet" them for amounts several times the prevailing rent for equivalent-sized units so that the letter of the law is complied with.
The girls advertise their services on web sites or in local publications. Another avoidance strategy is to operate a karaoke establishment and provide girls as entertainment or companionship only; the girls then take customers to an hourly hotel in the same building and pay for the room separately.
Informal, individual prostitution mostly of Filipinas, Indonesians, Thais, and sometimes women from Latin America and the former Soviet Union is almost always available at discos or hotel bars, especially in the Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai districts the latter famous as the setting for The World of Suzie Wong.
Occasionally the police raid the triad-run prostitution setups, but usually the only arrests made are for immigration violations. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
