CHAPTER 1

THE PROBLEM AND ITS SCOPE

INTRODUCTION

Rationale of the Study Nowadays, crimes are so rampant in our country and one of these crimes is prostitution. Although this act is considered immoral and illegal here in the Philippines yet still many women were inclined to this crime for some extent reasons. They were not aware that this would greatly affect their health and the  cause of the inevitable widespread of sexually transmitted diseases such as Aid’s, gonorrhea, syphilis, etc. As hearsays, prostitution is one of the familiar crimes in Alamanza Uno Las Piñas City, Metro Manila. Accordingly, most of the women young and adult are engaged in prostitution. As far is the researcher knows, most of the researcher were not a resident of Alamanza Uno Las Piñas City. They came from other places in the Philippines. According to hearsays, most of them were youth and others were victims of illegal recruitment. Every individual should take part of finding an effective solution for this problem. Even our simple ways might be effective. That is why the researcher conducted this study for him to know if prostitution is really rampant in Alamanza Uno Las Piñas City, Metro Manila, to discover what are the causes and effects of prostitution, and lastly, to know what are the preventive measures of prostitution in order to discover the solution to the problem.

  
Theoretical Background

Since prostitution is a sensitive indicator that develops with changes in the social environment and the state, it is useful to divide the history of this phenomenon from Estonia’s first independence according to the different historical stages of the country. Firstly, the period of Estonian independence1918-1940 is when the prostitution in Estonia was legalized. Secondly, the period of the Soviet occupation is when prostitution was criminalized.

The police were obliged to give necessary practical help (http:shaan.com/shaan/2008).Prostitution is the bartering of sex favor for monetary considerations, either gift or cash without emotional attachment between partners.

The type of this crime may include but not limited to street walkers, Call Girl or Boy, Electric Call Girl or Boy, Lonely heart hustler Computer selected date, Public relation gimmick, Photo studio prostitution, House wife prostitutes(Man Wong 2006).As we mentioned earlier, the literature on why women become prostitutes is voluminous. One of the oldest explanations is that women are forced into the profession, practice known as white slavery. The usual fantasies about white slavery involves gullible country girl at big city train and bus stations, is accosted by slick talking limbs and are inbred into brothels. Unquestionably violence is part of prostitute’s world, especially if she is a street walker who is exposed into violence from customers.
