When Addiction Turns into Prostitution

when sex turns into prostitutionYou start using for the first time.

Now it’s your 10th and you need more.

You get sucked into a whirlpool of bad habits. You’re stealing from family, selling your stuff, and trying to make ends meet. Then your parents catch on and they stop enabling you. You’re homeless now, with no money rolling in. You can’t get a job because you don’t even know what day it is. Your body won’t stop reminding you about drugs. Your addiction escalates because you need money for drugs.

How can I get money? Sex.

If you can get that $50 for a quickie, you’ll be able to get another hit. 


This is the start of something really, really bad. 

There are multiple dangers of having sex for money. And the most dangerous thing is carelessly doing so without a condom. 

  • Those who exchange sex without a condom may receive more money because of it.
  • Guys may be less inclined to wear a condom with regular or long term clients.
  • Unequal power between the man and women may result to a non-negotiation of not wearing a condom.

It obviously also raises the probability of getting STD/AIDS. 

Let’s break it down

If you can admit you have an addiction and you’re fearful you’ll get desperate, get some help. Go to a program where professionals can detox your body from drugs. And after you detox, go to a residential program and learn to live off of drugs. It will be a hard transition, but it will be so worth it. You’ll have your life back, you’ll be happier, and you can make money and save for life travels. You won’t have a ticking clock on you anymore and it will be the best decision of your life.
