The book looks at circumstances surrounding prostitution, who practices it, the reasons why some women cannot resist prostitution while others don't see it as a option, benefits and potential benefits that can be derived from sex work, a view of prostitution as legalised employment within the South African labour relations context, and the social impact prostitution has in the town of Mokopane. To find out if prostitution is a scourge or a Godsend, read the harrowing stories of these women from South Africa and decide for yourself.
