London, Great Britain – It is estimated that there are 42 Million people across the globe who are engaged in the oldest profession in the world. Majority of prostitutes are between the ages of 13 and 25 and about 80% are female.
Venezuela is believed to be the top country with the most prostitutes, followed by South Korea, Peru, Philippines and Nigeria. Completing the top 10 countries are China, Brazil, Malaysia, Germany and Thailand.
2014 may be the ‘Year of the Horse’ in the lunar calendar, but according to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), it is also the “Year of the Whores.”
Prostitutes interviewed by The Adobo Chronicles did not even know they had their own special year but were excited that their beloved profession is “finally getting the recognition it deserves.”
And so, the year-long celebration begins!
