It is an undeniable fact that the world has developed in a lot of things. The human race has come a long way, and we are doing some miraculous things. But at the same time, it is a bitter truth that we are lagging behind in a lot of things. We are intelligent enough to send a man to space and dumb enough to mistreat people because of certain reasons.
In many parts of the world, the particular groups of people who are mistreated are the sex workers. It is still seen as a taboo in most parts of the world, and they are not being accepted as a part of society. In this article, we will see the problems faced by sex workers.
The most common problem that most of the sex workers face is discrimination. Any kind of discrimination is something that cannot be accepted. There are a lot of organizations in the world that are raising the voice against many kinds of discrimination, but there are really not many organizations or people who are taking a stand against the sex workers discrimination.
Even though sex workers take all the necessary measures to keep them away from all kinds of STD, there are some possibilities that they might get affected by it. If the disease is a simple one, it is fine because there are medications and treatments available for it. But if it is a major disease, they will have bigger issues. More than the disease it is the misconception that the general population that affects the most. Most of the people think that they are active carriers of STDs.
Sex work is not a work that can generate a steady income. There will be some time where they will make a decent amount of money, but there will also be times where they will have return home empty-handed. We are talking about these expensive escorts who make thousands of dollars for just a night. The financial position of most sex workers is still a huge question mark, and they are finding it very difficult to meet their basic needs.
Sex work is not legal in most of the countries. There are only very few countries that have legalized prostitution. Hence sex workers in countries where it is not legal will be facing a lot of issues from cops and from the government. They might get arrested, and they would have to pay some fine for breaking the law. In many countries, the law against sex workers is one of the greatest problems that they are facing.
