Prostitution – The Oldest Trade

It’s been called the world’s oldest profession and in contemporary society prostitution takes many forms – from dangerous streetwalking to the high-end call girls who meet their clients in five-star luxury. Go beyond the sometimes glossy veneer of this industry’s respectability to see heartbreaking stories of how young girls are sold into sex slavery.

For many this turns into a lifetime of abuse, disease and destitution. Experience one such case of Maya, who was sold at just 10 years old into a Bangladeshi sex slum. As one of roughly 2,000 prostitutes, she services passing truckers for around $4 an hour. Back in the UK, we follow a disabled man as he prepares to travel abroad to a legal brothel specialising in sex for those less able.
