Why You? Qualitative Survey on Sexual Service Providers (SSP) in Five Provinces of Lao PDR. NCA in Lao PDR and Serge Doussantousse (2008)

Vietnam: HIV/AIDS TRaC Study among Injecting Drug Users in Mong Cai, Uong Bi, and Thai Nguyen City. DFID and PSI (2006)

"Why you?” “Why this job?” – these are the questions which sexual service providers (SSP) are most commonly asked by male clients; it is as though the man, after being sexually serviced, cannot quite believe that a young woman like this could be doing sex work. The questions suppose that there are other choices open to these women other than sex work, and arguably, they imply at the same time that only certain types of woman do this work as it must be degrading to do so. This study attempts to address these presumptions and allows the reader to hear as it were, the answers (for there are many) to these questions. This study met 101 women from 12 different ethnicities, from 16 provinces in Laos and with 101 different experiences of life to relate.

Profile of Female Sex Workers in a Chinese County. Fang X, Li X, Yang H, et al (2007)

Profile of Female Sex Workers in a Chinese County. Fang X, Li X, Yang H, et al (2007)

Does it differ by where they came from and where they work?

Since the 1980s, informal or clandestine sex work in the service or entertainment industry has spread from municipalities to small towns in most areas of China. Despite recognition of the important role of female sex workers in HIV and STD epidemics in China, limited data are available regarding their individual characteristics and social and environmental context of their work. Furthermore, most existing studies on commercial sex in China have been conducted in large cities or tourist attractions. Using data from 454 female sex workers in a rural Chinese county, the current study was designed
to explore the individual profile of commercial sex workers and to examine whether the profile and sexual risk behavior differ by where the female sex workers came from and where they work.
