There are quite a few Nepali females and girls from the North Eastern states plying their trade as well. Last season I was a little surprised to find a female from England openly solicting business.
Really from England...how much did she charge?

The Economist magazine's helpful guideline for determining such costs across countries and currencies is "ten times the price of a haircut."

We have sex workers here in England too. I guess we've just learned that some of them enjoy India travel!

The award winning documentary BORN INTO BROTHELS sheds more light on the subjet:

Bar Girls

...and of course anyone thinking of partaking in sexual activity should consider the high risk of HIV infection:

I'd like to thank the people who contributed to this thread - the comments are very interesting. Like in Thailand I can only assume this has become accepted as part of everyday life and the only option for those living in poverty, it is just more hidden.

I didn't know know a similar topic had been addressed on IM before I stumbled across this:

To child prostitution, on the other hand, well this is surely one of the nastiest and most evil forms of abuse that exist.
I can only speak to the condition in the US, where 75% of female sex trade workers are victims of childhood incest. Needless to say, incest victims have permanent psychological damage as a result of what has happened to them in their early life.

Let's all stop the chain of abuse of others. They may say "yes" to our paid desires, but let us all have a deeper understanding of what actions we take which add pain to our larger human family.

hi, i live in goa, but i haven't come across any such thing lately about child abuse. but if it is existing then it might be existing privately and is the most pathetic thing to do. Govt should take steps to eradicate child abuse.

I remember seeing a documentary about 20 years ago about prostitutes in Bombay and they showed some Europeans plying the trade also. So they've been in India for awhile.

I am not sure how far you can take this Carrie Nation cry. A response from a father pimping his daughter in Havana: You don't help us by not buying my daughter. Ah, socialist heaven..

The original entries to nthis were very old, I think they were done in 2004. So a lot has changed since then. The main area in Baina beach (Vasco) has been demolished and everything has spread out and become more up market I guess due to the influx of money generally.

There is so much publicity of foreign peadophilles that the local predators get over looked. The domestic market is much greater but less publcised as it's not as powerful news... It's like car crashes in the UK, we just get tired of reporting them as there are just so many, but plane crashes get full page spreads, although a lot less people are injured and die...

Often domestic offenses are seperated out and don't add to the paedophille stats as they are grouped under insest instead... This to me is a little misleading...

I truely think child abuse is the worst thing imaginable and it should be put to a stop, but I don't think that highlighting the 'glam stories' is the way to go.. Work on finding the locals who supply the children and stamp it out. The Goa children's act is there to help, although to be honest I went to the police last week to try and get them to enforce a piece of it, and that was like talking to a brick wall... Will try another way this week to see if I can get some action....

I have been working in Goa for 5 years now with Slum/Street children and to be honest I haven't seen much sexual abuse (thankfully!) - The ones I am aware of have been with Indian men and not foriegners... One 11 year old girl was raped by a (they say 17) but I think more 19 year old boy, another many had sex with and then ran off with his wifes younger daughter...

We all need to make a difference and don't give money to the children who work the beaches, however cute they look, don't give to the children who beg for money in the markets, outside the hotels etc.. stop this and hopefully it will stop some of the children being put into danger - let them stay in school and teach them!!

OK, rant over...
