I would like to indicate one more fundamental misunderstanding that is an inevitable part of the prostitution paradigm. Whether it was forced or voluntary, prostitution is not ‘sex in exchange for money’ between a woman and a man. Prostitution, as a part of the sex industry, is an exchange between the seller (agent or manager who is frequently male) and the (male) buyer. Here the woman is not the agent or central player in the exchange but simply and nothing more than an object, a commodity. As a commodity, the prostitute does not have the right to choose her customers.
