Remember how I said they treat us like a disease that must desperately be contained? Well in one town, the law stated that prostitutes who quit the brothel are required to leave town on the next available public transportation out.
In my town, meanwhile, we're required to be back in our house of employment by 5 p. Yep, we have a curfew that applies only to us. If we need to go to the doctor or run errands, we have from 9 to 5 to make it happen. And this is all out of fear that we'll start turning tricks on the corner if left out after dark. Here's an idea -- if they catch people actually doing that, why not punish them then , rather than preemptively punishing everyone in advance?
I had a friend in town, and I went to hang out with her one night. I went back to the brothel the next morning and everything was fine -- the matron knew where I'd been, and I literally just went to the one house and stayed there the whole time. But the sheriff found out somehow, and he dropped by work just to tell me that if he saw me out after 5 p. Not, "If I ever see you out committing crimes after 5 p. Like they're afraid I'm a vampire.
The reason all these weird little restrictions are allowed is because brothels in Nevada can only exist in counties with less than , people. They are based almost entirely in small towns sometimes small towns outside cities , and since most of these places are so isolated, the sheriffs have the freedom to enforce whatever wacky unwritten rules they want.
And good luck making sense of them. It makes sense that even a town that has legalized brothels would want to regulate how they advertise -- nobody wants a big billboard with titties on it looming outside their church every Sunday morning.
But if you're a prostitute, they figure that just the act of walking around and being a woman is, in fact, a form of advertising. And that's where things start to get weird. First, we are not allowed to go out of the house and entice pedestrians or vehicles into our den of sin. But I've seen girls open the window and holler at truck drivers, and that's apparently fine see, because they did it from within the house.
And I can take out the trash topless if I see a truck driver coming, and that's fine, too. As long as we stay on brothel property, everyone's happy ish. But what if I want to walk to the gas station to buy some cigarettes, with my top on, of course? Suddenly I'm back to living by high school dress code rules everywhere I go, or I risk being arrested. See, because if I'm wearing something too revealing, that's a form of advertising, in their eyes. Keep in mind, it's not just a limitation on going around nude outside, which would be understandable since, you know, those rules apply to everyone.
Brothel workers have less freedom to dress how they want than the rest of the women in town -- I have to wear layers, even when I'd like to be able to wear a tank top and a miniskirt. Women get to dress that way everywhere else, and no one complains.
Again, this is Nevada , where 30 percent of the state's economy is based on scantily clad women. But if I dress that way as a law-abiding prostitute? Well, I might find myself in jail, because why would I dress like that unless I was trying to entice men into having sex?
Prostitution is exhausting, and it takes a huge toll on my head and heart. I'm seriously recovering from burnout now. My last trip down there was six months, and I was beyond exhausted by the time it came to an end. You might be thinking that's just a natural consequence of the soul-draining business of sex for money. But the sex itself isn't the hard part at all.
The problem is that brothels never freaking close. So when there's business, there's business, and since most workers are only living there a few months at a time for the express purpose of making as much money as possible, we'd damn well better make the most of every chance for cash that comes our way. We're on the floor from 2 p. And when my shift is finally over and I try to get some sorely needed sleep? Well, we've got a book, with all our pictures in it that clients can look through.
If they pick you, regardless of what you're doing, you're up unless you want to be in trouble with management. It's absolutely exhausting to be told to get up 20 minutes after passing out and have to immediately switch my headspace from "sleeping" to "doll up and fuck a guy. Also -- I'm always playing a role when I'm on the job.
I literally go by a different name and have to take up a different personality when I'm there -- not a single girl there is percent themselves at the brothel. I came home after six months, and it took weeks for me to respond to my own name the way I respond to my brothel name.
I've worked out a system now: It's so good to hear from you! And then there's just the stress that comes with living with your co-workers. On one hand, we get incredibly close. But we also piss each other off, too. We have communal bathrooms, and you leave expensive shower and bath supplies in there at your own risk which is a big deal -- those pricey lotions are helping you do your job.
We're not pulling knives on each other, but one new girl did get her ass kicked by one of the veterans, after she became the top booker for the month and decided she ran the place. She didn't last long. So, between the harassment from the local cops and barely suppressed disgust from local citizens, who exactly is on our side?
Not who you'd think. We have a group of church ladies who show up once a month with presents for us. I think they come from Salt Lake.
It's not all religious stuff, either -- they bring us earrings, jewelry, and bracelets, and every Mother's Day we get flowers and vases.
And they do have pamphlets and stuff, but they don't care if you give them a "working" name, real name, or whatever. They just ask if there's anything you'd like for them to pray for, and when they come back, they remember your name. More than 1, persons were owners and pimps of underground brothels; more than 4, women were prostitutes; and 1, persons, including visitors from foreign countries, Hong Kong and Macao, were customers of prostitutes.

A year-old women in Shenzhen who works out of a back-alley. Little by little you get used to it. One American man told Theroux that a Chinese pimp had told him, Americans "are too big in their penis. The girl is Chinese. She is very small. It will hurt her too much. She left school early and may have retained some part-time manual work. Although emphasizing feelings as an important element in human relationship, she was cynical about romantic love, and may have become bitter and vindictive after she had been cheated or abused.
She was ambivalent towards traditional feminine roles, chastity, and sexual restraint, but still viewed them as ideals and wished that she could conform. She first ran afoul of the law after age The number of prostitutes, pimps, and their patrons known to the law has been increasing rapidly in China, especially in Shanghai and Guangzhou. Also noteworthy are the contributing social factors of inequality of gender status, lack of emotional nurturing and support for dependency needs in parental and marital homes, and the prevalence of opportunities for deviant outlets.
These social forces need to be considered in any plans for prevention. After release from jail, 20 to 30 percent of female sex offenders released in Shanghai relapse. Relapse rates depend on the intensity of rehabilitation. Many see their profession as a way to gather wealth quickly, feeling few moral qualms. Lijia Zhang, The Guardian, October 22, ]. An increasing number of young women in Yunnan Province are willingly going to Thailand and Malaysia to work as prostitutes or are being ordered by their families to work in brothels in these countries because the money is good.
Girls from the Dai minority are particularly sought after in Thailand because they are regarded as beautiful and their language is similar to Thai. You plant and you harvest. But in Thailand and Malaysia I heard it was pretty easy to earn money so I went All the girls would like to go, but some have to take care of their parents. The girls work in bars and most of the money they take in tricks goes to their pimp or brothel owner. Many make their way across the border hidden in the baggage compartment of buses and hope to get lucky and meet and marry an overseas Chinese or at least bring enough money back for a better life for themselves and their families.
Many are unable to save much even after a couple of years. Some do quite well and this is often reflected by the nice homeswith satellite television, air conditioning, generators and tile designsowned by their parents.
Some families with several daughters live in chateau-like homes with chandeliers, leather-covered sofas, golden Buddhist altars and fancy home entertainment centers.
Sex worker in a beauty salon Many brothels are fronted by saunas or karaoke bars and many massage parlors are located in barber shops or beauty salons.
A reporter for the Washington Post walked by a beauty salon and was told by a tout, "Hey, foreigners.
I've got the best you can imaginevirgins, experienced pros, cheap and they are ready for you. Prostitution and karaoke often go hand and hand. By one count there are over a thousand karaokes in the Guangzhou-Shenzen area that offer the sexual service of , women, most of them migrants from Sichuan. The Enjoy Business Club karaoke parlors in Shenzhen have singing rooms in the downstairs rooms and sex upstairs in private rooms.
Prostitutes work places that cater to all kinds of clients: If love hotels or back rooms of a karaoke are not available there is always the local park. One man asked Theroux if he wanted a girl and then told him "I can get you a very dark and private corner in the park, so you can be alone with her.
Freelance prostitutes, who work out of beauty parlors, often meet different clients at different places, taking calls from different salon managers on their cell phones. The annual fee is between 20, yuan RM9, and 50, yuan RM23, depending on which university they are studying at. The service was exposed after Beijing police busted a syndicate believed to be acting as the students' agent.
A man identified as a teacher called Chen was arrested in the operation. Initial investigations showed that the syndicate had posted the students' photographs, details and fees online for customers to view and choose. In China, there are many hostess bars, places where young ladies entertain, chat up, flatter and pander to male customers by lighting their cigarettes and pouring their drinks.
The women generally don't have sex with the male customers. Hostesses are generally prohibited by their employees from dating their customers after they get off work. Women who work at nightclubs, hostess bars and karaokes are often called "san pei xiaojie" literally "three accompaniment girls," meaning drinking, singing and dancing. Although many limit themselves to serving drinks, singing and dancing others will do more if the price is right.
According to survey there are , san pei girls in the city of Shenyang alone. Even if only a small number of them are actually prostitutes, they add up to a large number.
San pei girls are often victims of robberies and AIDS. Hooters had a branch in Beijing and two other locations in China as of As is true with branches in the United States, the girls there dress in orange track shorts, pantyhose and shrunken white tank tops. Sometimes they yelp and dance in a line. A sign hanging over the bathroom reads: What Hooters does is give a new model Many of the Hooters customers are expats.
Among the Chinese that go there are couples and even groups of women. Many of the girls that work there are university students. In his review of the book in the Asian Times, David Wilson wrote: Over the course of her two-year research stint, Zheng faced many of the dangers the hostesses did and went on an emotional rollercoaster, discovering much about the whole Dalian bar girl scene If only the author, who has a PhD from Yale, had concentrated more on telling the story instead of freighting it with cerebral baggage.
Some of the prose in Red Lights is so turgid that it borders on unreadable. Her intimate research could be deeply disturbing. Often, she had to witness shocking scenes, not least of which was vomiting hostesses unable to cope with the amount of alcohol they were obliged to drink to keep pace with the procession of clients.
Zheng shows what a truly unglamorous job hostessing is. Hostessing is also far more risky than the fixed smiles might suggest. During one police raid, like her quasi-colleagues, Zheng had to run and cower under a bed to escape detection.
During a gangster raid, she had her arm grabbed by one felon who started dragging her upstairs toward a private room where women were sometimes raped. The doorman and the manager stopped the thug in his tracks by telling him that Zheng was their friend. The degree of degradation that the hostesses undergo may be even worse than the darkest scenarios imputed by a reasonably informed observer.
The hostesses cannot trust each other or their appointed guardians. Imagine having to work in the shadow of Bing the bouncer. During Zheng's bizarre fieldwork, she witnessed countless bloody fights between the Romantic Dream hard man and gangsters, clients and passersby. For killing and severely injuring many men, Bing was once sentenced to death but saved by the bar owner who paid a mint for him to be freed from prison.
Without Bing, the bar would be bedlam, forcing the hostesses to run for their lives. On the one hand, Bing is their knight in shining armor. On the other, he is an ogre, happy to maul and rape them when the mood takes him. But if the men exposed in Red Lights appear monstrous, the hostesses appear little better. Although impressively talented at acting and so stylish that they set trends, they seem charmless - ice queens fixated on status and money. In the coterie of the hostesses, according to Zheng, conversation centers on how to extract the most and expend the least.
Talking about emotional involvement without compensation is a taboo enforced by ostracizing. With very few exceptions, the hostesses seem severely in need of tender loving care - or just a trickle of warmth. True, the money they make is the envy of many a toiling male peasant. Still, the income hardly seems to compensate for the abuse best summed up by poor hostess Min.. Back Find a Therapist. It's not all religious stuff, either -- they bring us earrings, jewelry, and bracelets, and every Mother's Day we get flowers and vases. And that was it.
