Legally, Prostitution is the sale of sexual services. The services may consist of any sexual acts, including those which do not involve copulation. While payment may be any nonsexual consideration, most commonly it is the form of "money". Prostitution is when money is the critical motivation for some activity. The average person in corporatocracy is in fact a prostitute. Most people do the jobs they do only for the money, not because they actually enjoy "the work" enough to continue doing it even without a monetary reward. You can verify this by asking them if they'd still do what they now do as "work", if they'd just won or inherited a billion dollars, and no longer had to work for a living. This is also a reminder that what anyone does for a living is not who they are, which may also remind us that we are spirits incarnate in bodies. Prostitution is a word which applies to far more circumstances than the usual legal definition, where the meaning is focused only upon "whoring". The English language definition "the act, or an instance of, offering or devoting one's talent to an unworthy use or cause", is far more akin in meaning to the word "pollution" than to "whoring". Ask any boy or girl what they want to be when they grow up, and my guess is that the majority of them will not respond: "I want to be a minimum wage laborer", yet most of them will start out in some such job, prostituting their truth, their desires, and their true choices, just to obtain a periodic paycheck. You can pretty well bet that, they are prostituting, even though it is probable that they have never "whored", (sold sex for money). On the other hand, selling sex for money, or "whoring" can be done in truth and appropriateness, through very selective choice of customers. There are quite a few who whore who is not prostitutes, for they actually love what they do, and would continue to engage in promiscuous sex even without the monetary reward. One who whores, who does not prostitute themselves, is one who allows themselves to be monetarily rewarded in addition to a fundamentally appropriate choice of having sex with someone she would have sex with even without monetary reward. Yes, it is true that much whoring is prostitution, but it is essential to understand, that while most people and most law fails to make this distinction, for it is nearly impossible to judge externally, that there truly is a distinction, and only the one whoring can know in the moment, whether she is for a given session, "whoring" or "prostituting". In many cases a fancy name for a legal whore is "wife". Many women, disembowel by the patriarchal system, seek to have their survival needs (money) met by one consistent trick (named "husband"). The essential purpose of modern patriarchal religions and society is to force this system of disempowerment upon the individual female and to allow her re-empowerment only via marriage (monogamous prostitution), for the overriding purpose of men being able to totally control women and the propagations of their DNA. Sacred Sex is a concept much suppressed in what passes for current "culture".
Prostitution in the Philippines is not just a festering moral problem, but is now a grave social crisis which might spiral out of control with far-reaching health, criminal and other negative repercussions if unchecked. As our politicos thoughtlessly imperil our economic development with their massive corruption and vicious wars, more and more impoverished young people are falling prey to the dangerous lure of the sex-for-pay trade and possible exploitation by criminals. Prostituted persons, according to a 1998 International Labor Organization study in 1998, numbered about 400,000 to 500,000. Most of them were adult women, but there were also male, transvestite and child prostitutes, both girls and boys. The number of child prostitutes then was estimated to be around 75,000. Child prostitutes often live perilously and are exploited by...
