    What causes a woman to want to become a prostitute?

    Presuming that not all women who become prostitutes are sex slaves and that the vast majority of female prostitutes are free lance, what factors (sociological and psychological) contribute toward the foundations of a prostitute?

    Many women go into sex work for a variety of reasons; many for the money, some to fund habits, some to feed their kids, but some simply for the pleasure of it. I have recently started reading Belle de Jour's 'Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl' (those in the UK may remember this was made into an ITV series with Billie Piper), and she fell into it purely by chance after a 'fun night' with a couple. They gave her money which she thought was for a cab fare, and it was three times more than what she needed. So she decided to carry on.
