Child Prostitution in the Philippines By: Andrea Cantarini
below is an excerpt from the slideshow with a bit of comment.
There are four hundred to five hundred thousand people being prostituted in the Philippines, most of which are women or young girls. But prostitution also affects children, both boys and girls, older males, and transvestites. A recent study showed that seventy-five thousand children are being prostituted in the Philippines. Children from ages eleven to fifteen reported that their relatives introduced them to prostitution. Filipino men are the main users of Filipinas in prostitution.
The Philippines ranks fourth in the world when it comes to child prostitution. Three thousand three hundred and sixty six more children are forced every year into prostitution. Prostitution is not a business, it is an industry in the Philippines.
SEX TOURISM CONTINUED.. Tourists mostly from Australia, the United States and Great Britain use these prostitutes. Like it or not, these tourists engage in sexual acts with mostly underage girls that work at bars or on streets.
