In order to understand late nineteenth-century prostitution rescuing in Canada, one must take into account the complexity of social and personal factors interaction, which is in turn arbitrated by the immediate circumstances of the interaction itself. However prostitution as a profession is still abhorred among the decent people and families. The public response to prostitution in Canada remains highly contested. However most of the female public wants it to be eradicated at grass root levels.
Of all forms of slavery, sex slavery is one of the most exploitative and lucrative form with some 200,000sex slaves worldwide bringing their slaveholders an annual profit of $10.5 billion. Although the great predominance of sex slaves are women and girls, a smaller but significant number of males and both adult and children are enslaved for homosexual prostitution. (Leuchtag, 2003, p 10).
Youth involvement in prostitution is also an increasing cause arising from male sexual socialization and female poverty. More recently, during the 1980's, attempts to combat street prostitution in various Canadian cities focused on the public nuisance aspect of the sex trade. "Street prostitution was the break down of law and order, and most of the talk was about how to restore order" (Bittle, 2002, p 317)
Causes of Prostitution
The most common cause of the dilemma, an unsophisticated profession in which a woman enters but not according to her own will, but due to all those circumstances which are created for her by one of the face of society called 'poverty'. A woman whether of any religion, race, culture or civilization abhors to present herself to men, this unwilling attitude of her later affects her psychology and her reluctant attitude when transforms into her determination, that means she has entered into a profession called 'prostitution'. A profession with no morals, no values creates an environment where there is no distinction between day and night, no distinction between mother and daughter, but a distinction is there between wealth and poverty.
Another major cause of increasing prostitution, which is often ignored by our society and culture, in my opinion is the increasing rate of betrayal of moral values.
Example: Particularly in the Western culture as far as my observation is concerned, issues of disloyalty in relationships have a gradual increase day by day. It often happens that a woman who belongs to a good family has boyfriends, she slept with two of her boyfriends, and afterwards she got pregnant unaware of whose child she is bearing. The worst is the situation in the cases when after ten twelve years after her kids have grownup, her husband comes to know that he is not the father of his children. Such cases can be seen on daily basis, which not often but sometimes lead the victim towards any negative activity, couldn't it be prostitution in the worst sense
To respectable people prostitution is a curse, more than a slang, which creates an
environment where property values and businesses in red light areas decline through the 'bad reputation' of that area, where
