On the Problem of Prostitution

Sinan Çaya


Prostitution is a female’s using her body as a merchandise on rent. As such, it is essentially demeaning and immoral, on an individualistic scale. Moreover; this matter is indeed a social wound, which any realistic observer in any society whatsoever would recognize; without ever stooping to denial or ignoring. It is also a subject of the Vice Squad section of the police in many countries. Besides being a moral issue, the topic also involves health matters for the human societies.


Prostitution; fornication; brothel; vice squad.
