The Countries With The Most Prostitutes

Denis Foynes- Every year, about 3 million people travel on sex tourism trips and this figure is on the rise.

Currently, there are more than 25 organized sex tour companies based in Miami, New York, and San Diego. This trend looks unlikely to change anytime in the near future.

Here are the ten countries with the most sex workers per 10,000 people.                                                    


10. Thailand-

45 sex workers per 10,000                                           

Prostitution is actually illegal in Thailand, however in practice it is tolerated and partly regulated.

9. Germany-

49 sex workers per 10,000                                                                                                                                                                                  

Unlike other European Union countries, prostitution, even street prostitution, is wide spread, organized, and legal in Germany. It’s little wonder when you consider that organized prostitution in the country dates back to the 1200’s AD.

8. Malaysia-

52 sex workers per 10,000                                                           

Prostitution is huge in Malaysia, however the dark side is strong. The United States has put Malaysia on the blacklist of countries with the worst cases of human trafficking and human rights abuse, including child prostitution.

7. Brazil-

53 sex workers per 10,000                                                                           

The act of prostitution itself (exchanging sex for money) in Brazil is legal, but it is illegal to run a brothel or to employ prostitutes in any other way.

6. China-

60 sex workers per 10,000                                                           

Prostitution is illegal in China but has been relegated to the status of a misdemeanor. Some researchers have conservatively estimated that there are as many as 10 million active prostitutes in China at any given time who contribute as much as five percent to the country’s annual GDP as most of the earned income, although not taxed, goes back into the economy through consumption.

5. Nigeria-

63 sex workers per 10,000                                                                           

A sex tourism market for divorced older western women is on the rise in the country.

4. Philippines-

85 sex workers per 10,000                                                                           

The Philippines offers female company in the form of "bargirls". Girls here often wear their "bargirl" ID tags in noticeable places, and are supposed to be regularly tested for STDs.

3. Peru-               

102 sex workers per 10,000                                        

Prostitution is legal for women over 18 years of age if they register with municipal authorities and carry a health certificate, and brothels must be licensed. Sadly, child prostitution in Peru has doubled in recent years.

2. South Korea-

110 sex workers per 10,000                                                        

Despite legal sanctions and police crackdowns, prostitution continues to flourish in S Korea, while sex workers continue to actively resist the state's activities.

1. Venezuela-

119 sex workers per 10,000                                                                        

Poor economic conditions in the country have tripled the number of sex workers here; even so, only one fifth of the workers actually are born in Venezuela.
