This article is based on my knowledge of the prostitutes from Russia, Ukraine
I would like to mention that you can replace the word prostitute by camgirl, pornstar (read the story from jenni lee). This issue is common to most of the sex workers.
Here in Europe, many women work as a prostitute from their early twenties because they can earn a lot of money in a short period of time. This is their choice. Unfortunately, most of them get spoiled by money and they don’t understand that they can’t work as a prostitute forever. The career of a prostitute is short as compared to the lifetime of a woman.
Now, the main problem of prostitutes is professional retraining after working as a prostitute. While they work as a prostitute they get used to a rich lifestyle, a simple life without responsibilities and they must move to a lifestyle with many more constraints and less earnings. That’s why former prostitutes from Eastern Europe join international dating agencies to find a male westerner who will accept to sponsor them for the rest of their life without asking questions. On the other hand, local men (Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian) don’t tolerate prostitution and most of them don’t accept to marry a prostitute.
Some prostitutes told me they saved money to go back to school, to university, to buy a grocery shop or real estate. However, to this day I have no example of successful use of their money. I have found that prostitutes didn’t study anything and didn’t plan anything for their future.
Now, let’s talk about what’s follow their career as a prostitute. Since those women worked apart from the corporate world, there are prostitutes with no skills, no degrees, no work experience who didn’t plan any professional retraining. If they want to apply for a job they have to lie because they have no work experience.
Also, when a person works in a corporate environment, whether it’s a bar, office, field, outside, she accumulates skills. A former prostitute lacks basic skills that would make her integrate the job market.
That’s why those women are very likely to become a burden to their male companion (husband, boyfriend) because they don’t know any job and have no skills. Furthermore, those women are used to a rich lifestyle like buying expensive clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry and traveling all over the world by plane. It is possible that those women pressure their husband or their boyfriend to live the life they had when they worked as a prostitute.
Nevertheless, I have discovered that strangely, in the vast majority of cases, there are less heavy spenders working as prostitutes than among the female civilians in the USA or Western Europe. Prostitutes are not heavy spenders. This means that the problem is more related to the lack of skills, degree and lazy mindset than heavy spendings or manipulation.
As you can see, the issue isn’t related to prostitution itself but the consequences of working as a prostitute.
Also, I have noticed that many prostitutes were psychologically unstable as compared to women who did everything in their power to get a stable job early in their life.
