She was an illiterate Nepali woman who possessed two valuable qualities: she was young and she was pretty. Her face earned her family the equivalent of fifty pounds when she was sold, aged twelve, to a brothel in India. It also earned her ten customers a day and HIV. She no longer works as a prostitute. This is not because she has been rescued from prostitution, or because she has found a happier livelihood, but because she is going to die.
She was ejected from her caged brothel in Mumbai because she had become too thin to attract the clients, and the brothel owner thought slaves was a bad advertisement for business.
All over the world women are sold, sex, forced or lured into prostitution. They are incarcerated in brothels and girls who are little more than children are compelled to service innumerable clients. They are unable to refuse the customers and unable to escape from brothels that are nothing but prisons.
These tales are not myths or figments in the imagination of p. They are ancient horror stories, and they are contemporary ones too, shared by hundreds of thousands of girls and young women. General indications: sex slaves in Asia also in the s - and men do not protest - reality of slaves of women is very brute These women are modern-day sex slaves - slaves Asia, in particular, has far more than its fair share of them.
Perhaps this is only to be expected. It should come as no surprise that societies that practice female infanticide, that have millions of 'missing' women, that have 'dying rooms' in orphanages for unwanted daughters, and that systematically discriminate against females should also sell girls and young women for sex. The question that produces far more surprising answers is: who is buying them? Research on the trafficking of women and systems of sexual slavery in Asia is a revelation because it gives a stark insight into the real workings of a society.
The slaves from the barred window of a closed brothel is very different from the sunny picture of happily regulated sexuality that is commonly described by the spokespersons of Asian societies. Trafficking: Nepal exporting girls: 'poor, rural, powerless and silent' At the beginning of the s I lived with my family in Nepal. During the two years I spent in the beautiful Kathmandu Valley I had some vague awareness of the migration and asian of Nepali girls to north Indian brothels.
It was one of Nepal's many dreadful social problems and was considered a by-product of the country's appalling poverty. Like sex other people in the circles in which I mixed, I thought it was a relatively minor issue. In hindsight, these views must have been colored by the fact that the girls and women involved were poor, rural, powerless and silent.
They were ignored because they were unimportant in the busy world of Kathmandu's political elites. Eight years on, and after interviewing dozens of Nepali women involved in sex work, I have changed my sex about the significance and the importance of these women's lives. Despite the vast differences between the levels of economic development in Nepal and Japan, I gradually p. In particular, Japan has an image of an impeccably clean and ordered society.
So why were there reports, tucked away in the press, of Thai and Filipina women who had suffered grievous harm at the hands of the Japanese sex industry? And why did their stories bear such striking similarity to the stories of Nepali women in Indian brothels? Eventually it made a kind of sense.
The stories were the same because trafficking and prostitution are part of a vast and global industry. General indications: Europe and 'America' have open sex business - Asia has secret and hidden sex business Commercial sex is widespread in Asia.
In fact, it is probably even more common than in the West. The difference is that it is a very, very quiet business. The West has highly visible asian industries, Female sexuality is used to sell virtually all products, and sex is bought on the streets, in brothels, in massage parlors, in clubs and through advertisements. Asia has a similar phenomenon, but you have to be an Asian man to know where to look for it.
That is why it is hard to write about the sale slaves sex in the region. It is also why it is important for the rest of the world to listen to the experiences of women who sell sex, and to the experiences of women who are sold for sexual recreation in Asia.
It is especially important when the consumers of these young women and girls are men who are supposed to be too morally upstanding to be buying the product in the first instance. Trafficking: Sold women: from poor families - from poor sex - women of minorities - and arrogant rich and discriminations The people who endure the grossest forms of slaves sexual abuse throughout the world are those who are at the bottom of lots of different, and very complicated, hierarchies.
They are female, they are from poor families in poor communitiesand they belong to despised racial and ethnic minorities. They are abused and exploited, and a proportion are locked into sexual slavery precisely, and simply, because they can be: they are society's most vulnerable people.
In Asia there is plenty of opportunity for the creation and maintenance p. Well developed trafficking networks for sex slavery - and not justified good reputation of Asian men The trafficking of women for prostitution is a global phenomenon and so it might appear unfair to single out Asia for specific criticism.
Research on prostitution in the former Soviet Union, in Eastern Europe and in Latin American would probably yield broadly similar results. Female sexual slavery is found everywhere. Asia, however, is worthy of special attention because it is here that the industry and trafficking networks are most sophisticated and well developed. Ironically - and astonishingly - it is also a part of the world in which the local men are thought not to buy sex.
And this cannot simply be because Western [criminal] pedophiles visit Asian countries to buy sex with children. There are so many child prostitutes in Asia that the demand for their services must also be coming from another, far more important quarter [for Japanese men, as you can see later].
Evidence from organizations working with prostitutes indicates that the average age of sex workers in Asia has been falling in the past decade.
In large parts of the region prostitutes begin selling sex when they are children. The sex industry likes cheap and compliant staff and the customers prefer disease-free teenagers. The most disturbing aspect of the sex business that I encountered, and the hardest to accept, was the fact that when Asian men buy sex they seem to prefer to buy girls and not women.
The premium age for prostitutes in Asia is between thirteen and sixteen. Virgin girls are in greatest demand and the price that the customers are willing asian pay for them is very, very high. As I interviewed former child prostitutes in South Asia, I was acutely aware that these girls had begun work at around, or even before, the age of puberty [and Asian governments are blind for this and sex always the Europeans]. Asia-bashing has become something of a sport in the West in the past three or four years.
The Asian economic crisis provided p. Asian economies are recovering well from the financial crisis but there are other, even asian, myths about Asia which need to be challenged. The two codes in Asia: The official character of Asian society - and the secret drive for sex in the secret brothel Asia is commonly portrayed as the home sex wholesome family values and conservative sexual morality.
This would be hilarious if sex impact upon women, and particularly prostituted women, was not so devastating. A fashionable debate emerged a few years ago about the importance of "Asian values" in the success of South-East and East Asian economies.
Although this debate was never wholly convincing, especially as Asia is so diverse, a core set of values was identified as "Asian". These included -- the attachment of an individual to his or her family; -- respect for authority; -- the importance of education and thrift; -- deference to established social structures; and -- adherence to conservative social and sexual codes. While studying the Asian sex industry I began to think that some important things might have been missing from this list.
Sex we also need to add -- hypocrisy and -- men's contempt for women. Asian culture does not speak about sexual problems - does not want to slaves sexual problems - slave situation is considered as "normal" I do not wish to depict the West as a great model of social and sexual morality.
Analysis of Asian men's prostitute use asian not intended to glorify Western sexual and social ethics. All societies have their problems and European and North American societies have just as many, if not more, than anywhere else. But the asian, the social decay and the inescapable world of commercial sex in Western societies are on show for asian entire world to see. They can be criticized and damned. Asian societies, however, hide their problems away.
In fact they are not even acknowledged as problems. I have sat through too many work-related meetings and attended too many social functions in which educated Asian men have asian denied that there is any incidence of prostitution in their own societies.
They should be more honest. Vice, we are told, is the p. This message should be sent to the sex slaves of Asia's closed brothels to debate.
Unfortunately no one is likely to let them out in order for them to receive it. That, precisely, is the point. Asian moral for family is high - and also Asian moral for secret brothels for the father All societies moralize. And we should be aware by now that what is portrayed in public discourse as normal sexual conduct is often very different from what people actually do in private.
From a Western perspective there seems to be a vast gulf between Asian societies' emphasis upon the family and the reality of men's sexual practices. This gulf between theory and practice can be explained, in part, by the fact that we are not comparing the same thing. The rather vague concept of 'family values' will inevitably vary within different cultural contexts.
In Western societies there is an assumption that fidelity is a requirement of marriage. Most classes within most Asian societies, on the other hand, do not make this assumption - at least not in practice.
In this respect there is no hypocrisy in the Asian family values system. Men hold family values very dearly but in an Asian sex family values mean stability of the family unit. They mean that the family sticks together and that divorces are frowned upon. Yet the size of the sex industry suggests that those same values do not necessarily require that a husband mus be faithful to his wife. In this case the only hypocrisy lies in the farcical assertion that Asian men uniformly adhere to a conservative sexual code that stresses fidelity and virtue.
Asian moral permits fathers sex with other women - but does not permit the mothers sex with other men In most Asian societies sex and the family are two almost wholly separate facets of a man's life. Marriage, reproduction and the family are economic and social contracts.
Sex is an obligation within this contract but it is not something that necessarily has to be good, or to be enjoyed, or to slaves consistently practiced - although, of course, it helps.
Sex is a recreation, a sport which men - and only men - asian legitimately pursue outside the confines of the marriage bed. Adventures with mistresses and frequent tumbles with prostitutes are accommodated within this framework slaves because wives are p. After all, sex is not what their marriage is all about.
Women hardly have civil rights in Asia - Asian men profit from women without rights Secondly, there is absolutely nothing a wife can do if she objects to her husband's behavior. In other words men can buy sex because they can get away with it.
But there has been little analysis of the demand as opposed to the supply side of this industry. Who are these invisible customers who buy the bodies of so many children and young women? My guess, at least in large parts of Asia, is most men. This includes men from all social classes, religions and ethnic backgrounds.
General indications: the basic sex problem in Asia: 'good women' in Asia 'do not like sex' There is an assumption in many Asian societies that men must inevitably want to buy sex: that it is a kind of natural function. This assumption is shared by both men and women.
Good women - the kind who are socially respectable and whom men marry and provide with economic security - do not like sex. Not every Asian man will buy sex and some would never dream of doing so.
To claim that all Asian men are prostitute-users is as ludicrous and unbalanced as claiming that Asian males follow strict p. We need to be far more accurate about these codes and their claim to virtue. General indications: the official code family life and the unofficial code sex in brothel slavery for the Asian society There are, in fact, two types of code. The first type is the public code and the type held up to the world as a great model of social and sexual propriety.
And then there is the second type: the unofficial code which tells men that they can have a string [file] of mistresses [women servants] and that they can buy sex on the open market.
The only caveat [limit] is that it is best if the men do not get caught in the act. Taxi drivers know]. It is no accident that life for poor Pakistani prostitutes is abysmal because it is also pretty tough for most Pakistani women. There is a beautifully neat symmetry: strict sexual codes and rigorously male-dominated societies are mirrored by widespread systems of sexual slavery and a regular supply of trafficked women to the sex trade. When these unhappy factors are added to poverty and to wide income disparities the results are catastrophic for the most vulnerable women.
Sex workers' organizations and parts of the feminist movement become irritated when attention is concentrated upon trafficking and forced prostitution. They claim that an emphasis upon the grisly aspects of the industry discredits all of it when, in fact, some parts of the business are potentially just fine. Trafficking stories are victim stories and they give an incomplete and distorted picture .
General indications: many prostitutes would like other jobs when other jobs would be available - brothel prisons as a 'home' against poverty Certainly, not all sex workers are victims and not all are forced to sell their bodies. Some of the women like their work - but not many - and we can question which proportion would choose prostitution as an occupation if society had offered them any other reasonable option.
For lots of women - especially in impoverished Asia - prostitution is all about survival. Even a lousy brothel is good for some poor and dispossessed women because it gives them the means to eat. The heavily made-up and brightly dressed girls and women lining the p. Example of a mother with 2 children in Pakistan in Heera Mandi District in Lahore also called Hira Mandi - the daughters will also be prostitutes. In Pakistan, I spent an evening at the home of a prostitute who is anything but a sex slave.
She has her own house in the traditional red light district of Heera Mandi in Lahore and entertains a number of middle-class businessmen on a regular basis. She is not well-off but she makes an adequate living. She has few qualms [doubts] about her trade. It is, she said, her choice to sell sex, and I believe that she told me the truth.
She seems contented and at peace - at least most of the time. She began to teach me some of the dances of a courtesan and how to jangle [make noise] dozens of bracelets in just the right way and at just the right moment. She also taught me how to drink half a liter of vodka without passing out and how she had begun to sell sex when she was abandoned by her husband and left destitute with two babies to feed. This woman is in her mid-thirties.
She is beautiful, but you can see the traces of wear on her face. She knows she is getting older. Some of her clients are not as attentive and as generous as they were and her income is beginning to decline. I asked her what she was going to do in the future and, as I did so, her two daughters ran into the room. One was about thirteen and a little plain and very quiet. The other was about eight and as pretty and as vivacious as her mother. This child will be her mother's future and, within a few years, prostitution will be her trade.
She is being groomed [educated] to sell sex. Even as a child she is dressed like an adult sex worker. What kind of choice, I thought, did this mother and her young daughter really have? General indications: sex industry combined with economic theories lets grow this sex industry and also trafficking and trade of women The sex industry has arranged a happy and profitable marriage with the neo-liberal economic theories that have enamored the world for the past couple of decades.
According to this economic agenda everything has a price, and a free and unfettered marketplace must determine that price. For a large number of the poor, and especially for poor women, the magic of the market has yet to work its wonders. It has, however, given a new impetus to the sex industry. It has p. It is controlled and regulated by managers worthy of an MBA and it is protected and promoted by an astonishingly effective public relations effort.
Economic liberalization policies have meant that a lot of people in Asia have become poorer while some have become a lot richer. People are moving more easily from one country to another as border controls have been relaxed and as people migrate in search of a livelihood.
The trafficking of women, in a sense, is part of a much larger pattern of migration and social change. More people are increasingly desperate; more people are on the move; more women are mobile because they have grater opportunities; and more men have the finance to buy sex.
General indications: economic split into rich and poor supports prostitution for the rich - sometimes a chance for women. In an increasingly materialistic and unequal world it is largely inevitable that more women will end up in prostitution and that more men will buy their services. Asia's traditional cultures are rapidly being overlain by modern consumer cultures. This is a massive bonus for the sex industry because women's customary low status in Asian societies permits vulnerable women to be more easily manipulated for men's pleasure and for the sex trade's profit.
Prostitution is giving some disadvantaged women the ability to improve their financial lot in life and to achieve a degree of social and economic mobility that otherwise would be out of their reach. But, although this is true, our first question should be the morality of a power structure that makes the provision of sexual services the only realistic path a young woman can follow if she wants economic security and the chance to lift herself and her family out of poverty.
Prostitution is a quick financial fix in places where inequitable patterns of economic growth have excluded the poor from the excitements of the consumer boom. Selling sex - or being sold for sex - is a form of work that the poor and badly educated can easily enter. The only necessary qualifications are youth and an element of p.
General indications: the big majority of prostitutes remain poor - prostitutes from India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Burma, Pakistan, Cambodia, Philippines. Prostitution is also a form of work that will continue to ensure that the poor, apart from a lucky few, remain poor and badly educated.
It is, nevertheless, an employment trend, or a survival mechanism, that is fast becoming acceptable in large parts of Asia. It is acceptable to countries like Thailand and the Philippines, which see the sale of their women as a development strategy. It is acceptable to some families who will sell their children into prostitution.
It is acceptable to girls who are raised and educated for little else, and acceptable those women who see it as a lucrative career option. Nepali women figure prominently in this record of the sex slaves of Asia's brothels.
The stories come from women who are both the victims and the survivors of sexual abuse. Many of these women have had little say in the narrow options that have determined their fate.
Some have had absolutely no choice. A few of the accounts tell of irredeemably shattered lives. Most stories, however, are a testimony to the capacity of individual women to cope with exploitation and to survive it with an inspiring dignity. I have written this book after hearing a similar, appalling story from girls and women all over Asia.
It is a story that tells something about the depths to which humanity can sink. More accurately it tells of the depths to which some men can sink and how women often abet them in the process. I hope it will convey something of the rank hypocrisy of societies that preach about sexual morality, and make a fetish out of virtuous womanhood, but simultaneously utilize the youngest ans most vulnerable females for sexual pleasure and as the living material upon which men can exercise the thrills of domination.
Neither those people who promote prostitution as work nor those who are implacably hostile to it will like this book. Many Asian men - and substantial number of women - will hate it. That is all the more reason to write it. Chapter One: The Market, part 2 Part 2: 7: pimps and prostitutes - 8: trafficking women - 9: Asian sex problems - repression, control, and poverty Demonstrator: 1 minute - 1 woman or child is sold on the world: "Every Minute Of The Day A Woman Or A Child Is Sold"  - mostly the victims are sold to WOMEN traffickers in beautiful clothes and with jewelry promising jobs "in the city" without control, and Asian "women at home" want to be "clean" and are sending their husbands just into these brothels where these girls and women are sold.
More perverse this Asian system cannot be rejecting of good sex at home and sending men to brothel prisons where the sex slaves are working Pakistan, here the poor village of Damadola after an "U.
Poverty provokes that offers of jobs "in the city" are accepted without control. And the government "does not know" how to evade poverty in the own country Poor village in Mekong Delta in Vietnam .

Fishing village in the Philippines . Tens of thousands and possibly hundreds of thousands of women were compelled to work in brothels that served the Japanese military. In addition to Koreans, women from the Philippines, China and other countries invaded by Japan were forced into sexual slavery.
In , activists installed a statue honoring the women in front of the Japanese Embassy in Seoul, touching off a diplomatic furor. Since then, similar statues have been placed in other cities, including San Francisco and Hong Kong. Most Asian prostitutes sell sex to Asian men.
By comparison, the number of Western clients pales into insignificance, although these men are important because, on average, they pay far more. The sex tourism business grew from, and now grows along-side, the indigenous sex trade.
The Asian version of commercial sex is very different from the Western sex tourist scene. So an observer who looks for local Asian men crowding into go-go bars and the kind of Thai club that offers banana, 'smoking pussy', ping pong and razor blade shows will look long and hard - and without success.
Asian men buy sex in a different kind of setting and in a different location. Often it is in areas catering specifically - and exclusively - to Asian men, and sometimes p.
Those people who have been looking for evidence of a local Asian sex market have been looking in the wrong place. Asian society is protecting all in secret houses]: Example of a secret brothel in Manila for Filipino men - big room in the background - men leaving with the dancers in the cars Sex tourism is inescapable in the Philippines.
And so is the commercial sex market patronized by local men - providing you know where to go. Manila and Angeles are crowded with sex clubs catering to foreigners. They have neon lights, loud music and semi-naked women hanging around the doorway. It is much harder to see where Filipino men buy sex. In Manila, I visited a club catering to lower-middle-class and better-off working-class men.
The clients were drivers, clerks and small-scale businessmen. From the outside the club looked completely innocuous. There were no indications that sex was sold inside this establishment - at least none that was clearly visible to a Western women, even one who was fairly clued up on the commercial sex scene.
From the external appearance of this club it looked remarkably like a large Mediterranean holiday-style disco. We paid our entrance fee to a couple of confused youths and entered a barn-like room that was filled with rows of tables and chairs.
A small and incompetent band played to an audience of three extremely bored spectators who clapped whenever they were prompted. We were ushered through a side door and walked down a long, narrow and poorly lit corridor. Then, to my surprise, we entered a large room that was so crowded that the waiter struggled to find us a table.
The contrast with the empty, and very public, front of the club could not have been more dramatic. In the middle of this busy room was a small stage about three feet off the ground and surrounded by tables. At ten-minute intervals a couple of girls walked through the throng of men and danced on the stage.
The braver ones undressed and the others performed a stiff and unconvincingly erotic shuffle while holding onto as many items of clothing as they could possibly manage. The vast majority of men ignored these shufflings and concentrated on talking to their friends while p. Every now and again one of the customers would get up, leave the table and follow the women to the dressing rooms. They did not return. Example of a secret brothel in Manila for Filipino men: hidden and slave brothels called "casa" - entry only from friend to friend - the taxi driver know This club is a Western-style venue for the local men but there is another even more authentically local variety of sex establishment.
It is called a casa and it is a closed brothel. In other words, the women cannot escape. Identifying casas is troublesome because they are hidden. They do not have signs, and new customers are introduced by regular clients. Gaining entry to some of these places is rather like gaining membership to an exclusive club. Taxi drivers everywhere have a wealth of information about brothels, and Filipino taxi drivers are experts on casas. One particularly well-informed driver took me to a house in Manila that he insisted was a casa catering to rich men.
It was a large, modern, multi-storey building in its own grounds and was surrounded by fences. Its windows were of darkened glass and it had no apparent purpose. It was the most unlikely brothel. The driver was so insistent that it was a casa - and I was so disbelieving - that I agreed to observe the building at night. Sure enough, he was right. Every evening men arrived in expensive cars and parked in an underground car park. They then stayed for a couple of hours and left as quietly as they had arrived.
In contrast to the constant movement of men, I never saw any young woman enter or leave the building. Asia: many states declaring prostitution "illegal" - and women have no rights - and foreigners are forbidden - example Japan with women without rights Prostitution is illegal in the Philippines and we find the same kind of dissembling happening in other countries in which sex for sale is prohibited.
Japanese brothels are not advertised as brothels but all the locals know what they are. Men talk about them and they visit them. Women know about them, but do not mention their existence. The subject is not one that is officially recognized. Commercial sex is both a joke among men and a subject that is not fit for discussion in polite society. Signs on the clubs in Tokyo that p. Clearly, Japan has a reputation to protect. Pakistan declaring prostitution "illegal" - and secret brothels from "friend" to "friend" A similar phenomenon is found in Pakistan's sex sector.
Brothels are not brothels. Instead they are 'dancing schools' or they are apartments and houses in respectable suburbs.
Few people will tell you otherwise because there is a conspiracy of silence. New customers are introduced by trusted, existing clients. These men are guaranteed not to give the game away. And wives can also be guaranteed not to complain. They have no option.
They also visit prostitutes. Their wives have no choice other than to accept this behavior because the only alternative is a socially and financially disastrous divorce. A husband irritated by a nagging wife may even decide to bring yet another wife home. Less affluent men may not be able to afford mistresses but they still might visit sex workers.
The bitter unhappiness of the wives of poorer men, however, will not be tempered by gifts of jewelry and beautiful clothes. Pakistan: arrangements for sex in the waiting room of hospitals In sexually repressive societies the most unlikely places become the venue for selling sex. In Pakistan, for example, favorite spots include the waiting rooms of hospitals because these are places where women can legitimately visit. Or there are particular stretches of road - especially the ones with traffic lights to stop the cars and a few bushes for the sake of discretion.
Pakistan: the secret brothel - and girls and women hardly can get out - and they don't speak It is impossible for the uninitiated to identify a Pakistani brothel.
They look like ordinary houses in ordinary streets. I was taken round and round residential districts in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi that were filled with brothels. Yet, until I was told, I could not identify which buildings were brothels and which were family homes. Many guest houses and small hotels are brothels - but you have to be told this to know about it, and you have to be part of a local, inner circle in order to enjoy the services offered.
The girls and young women inside these places cannot speak about what happens withing their walls because some cannot get out. And those who can leave will not speak about selling sex p.
India and Bangladesh: brothel sectors in certain cities since centuries India is a little more relaxed about commercial sex but, even so, the sex sector is still nowhere near as apparent as in the West. This does not mean, however, that it is smaller in size or importance than its Western counterpart. Quite the reverse. A visitor to India will not see an extensive sex sector if they look for pornography among the magazines and newspapers that are sold in the street and in the shops. Indian women dress with discretion and Indian cinema is unhealthily chaste.
There are not many sex tourists in places like these. Today India's traditional red light areas cater to ordinary men - just as they have done for centuries. A traditional urban brothel in India, and also in Bangladesh, is not a single building but a whole sub-sector of the city in which there are many sex establishments. Brothels in old urban centers are a warren of dark, often unpaved, winding lanes and alleys in which hundreds and sometimes thousands of women sell sex.
India and Bangladesh: brothels in big multistoreyed buildings - not attractive - not cleaned - with slave women There are usually many large, multistoreyed and decrepit buildings each divided into separate, and competing, brothels.
In turn, these brothels are divided into lots of tiny cramped rooms in which two, three or more prostitutes work. There is nothing glamorous about these places. There is little that can be described as erotic in the rat-infested, overcrowded and unsanitary rooms in which the women work. Places like these are the home to a large proportion of Asia's sex slaves p.
This government in Nepal is absolutely corrupt and criminal leaving a big part of it's population in absolute poverty without education, social networks or institutions. There would be so much tourism possible in Nepal but the chances are not used, but girls are exported to Mumbai systematically.
