Different theoretical perspectives were utilized in efforts to understand and explain why young women drift or jump into prostitution. This research provides an attempt to analyze prostitution in a social-psychological perspective in combination with a psychodynamic perspective. We gathered the information by reading literature, articles and internet sources and also through interviews with ten professionals who meet the prostitutes daily. (Less)
