I think you dont have anything to talk about. so you are just bashing DR. GO get a job and do something useful stupid.
By the way, DR is not ranking number four in nowhere maybe just in your head lol idiot.
Here Educated yourself before make a fool of yourself on the Internet, thats why existed GOOGLE IDIOT!
Diagnosis of PTSD per country of prostituted respondents:
Colombia: 86%(get this—this is were it is LEGALIZED)
South Africa: 75%
ALSO THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PROSTITUTION AND THE ONE I THINK YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT IS CALLED SEX TOURISM. Several countries have become preferred destinations for sex tourists. These include Thailand,Brazil, Sri Lanka, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Cuba, and Kenya.
An individual city or region can have a particular reputation as a sex tourist destination. Many of these coincide with major red-light districts, and include Amsterdam in the Netherlands; Zona Norte in Tijuana, Mexico; Boy's Town in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico; Fortaleza and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil; Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket in Thailand; Vladivostok in Russian Far East; Kherson, Odessa, Crimea in Ukraine; destination for Asian sex tourists, and Angeles City, the site of a former United States military base in the province of Pampanga, Philippines.
But in Overall there are several countries in the world that lead DR in Prostitution (Philippines and Thailand For example) and moreover since in some of these countries Prostitution become LEGAL Such as GERMANY< CANADA< LAS VEGAS NEVADA< HOLLAND< ETC.

SANTO DOMINGO.- Dominican Republic ranks fourth among countries with the highest number of women working in the sexual market abroad, behind Thailand, Brazil and Philippines.
The support center Aquelarre (CEAPA) estimates that more than 50,000 Dominican women practice prostitution abroad, even when their recruitment for sexual services involves myriad problems, specifically human rights violations.
It said people-trafficking is usually accompanied by enormous movements of money, as well as guns and drugs.
CEAPA said 94.3 percent of Dominicans decide to go abroad due to economic necessities; 3.8 percent from domestic violence and 5 percent for reasons such as seeking wellbeing and a better life.
The case of Fátima
At a time in her life she was sexually exploited and was duped into traveling abroad for a period of three months, supposedly in search of a better life. "We couldn’t make excuses, we had up to 9 men per day, they had a way of working us until dawn, they gave us alcohol and drugged us," said Fátima amid tears and broken voice.

Nearly 4,000 Dominican women are prostitutes in Suriname

Zoom Picture Santo Domingo.– Some 5,000 Dominican and Brazilian women work as prostitutes in Suriname, where both are ill-treated and exploited, according to the results of an investigation presented Thursday in this capital.
According to a report by Spanish news agency EFE, Dominican and Brazilian women represent virtually 100 percent of the sex workers in Suriname, a country of some 223,000 inhabitants.
The "Trinational Investigation into the Treatment and Trafficking of Women" and COIN research institute revealed that between 3,000 and 4,000 Dominican women are forced to engage in prostitution in Suriname in largely clandestine transactions in which they are maltreated, raped and sometimes even disappear for good.
The researchers found that prostitutes from Brazil "suffer the constant violation of their human rights."
Marcel Hazeu, a representative of the Brazilian organization Sodireitos, which participated in the study, said that although her countrywomen have in common with the Dominicans the need to escape from poverty and support their families, "the Dominicans have a greater awareness of the exploitation to which they are subjected."
"The Brazilians don't organize themselves to resist, but the Dominicans realize that they are exploited and subjected to violence, although they don't have a community or a consulate" in Suriname, she added.
There does exist a Brazilian consulate in the small country. Hazeu said that "the big lie of the (sex) traders (i.e. pimps) is to feed in Dominican and Brazilian women great expectations, which they never fulfill," since –she said– "economic earnings are scarce" for both.
The great illusion of the prostitutes is, she added, that they may be able to marry a rich Surinamese man, "it doesn't matter if he's a drug trafficker, a politician or a man with four wives living in different houses which he throws out when he gets tired of them."
COIN said in the study that the Dominicans usually work in clandestine locations, "much more hidden and dangerous than the Brazilians," and it added that some Dominicans have disappeared in Suriname but those cases have not been investigated by the authorities.
The heads of COIN, Santo Rosario and Francisca Ferreiras, asked the governments of the Dominican Republic, Brazil and Suriname to establish policies and programs to protect the rights of the women who are victims of the sex trade.
Rosario said that some women gravitate to prostitution because of poverty and the inequality of the sexes and she complained that the immigration laws, approved to combat the crime of people selling and trafficking, "make the problem clandestine and invisible and make it so that the women suffer more."
This reality, Rosario said, "demands the establishment of policies of labor integration and the authorization of microloans so that poor women can find work in conditions of equality in their society of origin."
Rosario also said that Suriname is a transit and destination country for the sex trade due to the economic flows generated by its mines and casinos and because some women can cross the border to French Guiana or emigrate to France, Martinique or Guadeloupe.
According to data compiled by local organizations, more than 200,000 Dominican women work as prostitutes outside their homeland.

Dominican Prostitution: Cheap, Prevalent and Accepted
The Miami Herald, Inc.; Tuesday, June 24, 1997
Juan O. Tamayo; Herald Staff Writer
SOSUA, Dominican Republic - On an idyllic beach where necklaces of white sand and coconut trees ring a half-moon bay, tourists can find prostitutes ranging from young women to even younger boys.
They pay anything from $15 for a quick tryst in a beachside shack to $60 for rooms in brothels and $100 for the more upscale women who work the town's discos and dress well enough to slip into luxury hotels.
"Put enough money on the table and you can get anything you want right here, right now," said Jessica, a 20-year-old "manicurist" who reels off her prices soon after introducing herself at a Sosua beachside bar.
And it is all not only tolerated but quite public, part of a prostitution industry of long standing that is as prevalent here as its more internationally publicized counterpart in nearby Cuba.
Some 100,000 women and men now work as prostitutes here and 40,000 abroad, according to social work groups, making this nation of only 7.6 million people one of the leading suppliers to the international sex circuit behind Thailand and the Philippines.
Fueling the prostitution -- social workers prefer the term "sex work" -- are the abject poverty of the hemisphere's third poorest nation and a macho culture where some fathers still pay for their sons' first trip to brothels.
Dominican women have long been recruited as "dancers" for European and Middle Eastern cabarets, with some returning home later with tales of being forced into prostitution and drugs while their bosses held their passports.
Boom in tourism
"Sex work is a historical phenomenon in the Dominican Republic," said Santo Rosario, head of COIN, a volunteer group that teaches prostitutes about the dangers of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.
But what gave the sex industry a real boost here is the boom in tourism that saw the number of foreign visitors, mostly from Europe and Canada, jump from 900,000 in 1989 to 1.57 million last year.
Estimates of the tourists who come primarily for sex range from a low of 5 percent to as high as 30 percent, but there's agreement that many of the visitors find the local prostitutes and low prices irresistible.
The widespread prostitution is one of the key factors behind the AIDS epidemic here, the fourth worst in the hemisphere. Yet ironically, prostitutes are no longer considered prime targets of the epidemic because of programs launched since 1990 to educate them on the need for condoms.
"Sex workers are actually more aware and better protected today than the average Dominican," said Petronila Brazoban, 37, a former prostitute who founded a self-help group for HIV-positive sex workers in 1992.
COIN now offers brothels and cabarets free condoms if they require the women to use them with clients. Brothels are not illegal here, so COIN can only threaten brothels with health inspectors who can close them down.
Most brothels and cabarets also require that employees be tested for sexually transmitted diseases once a month, though Rosario and a cabaret owner admitted the women can move from bar to bar to continue working even if sick.
Comic books featuring characters such as Maritza the Streetwalker and Mario the Tiger use racy language and drawings to show prostitutes how to argue with customers who don't want to use condoms and how to spot diseases.

the only difference in U.S it is not legal there is nothing wrong with legal non force prostitution it's been around since the start of time it will always be around, when you have it illigal as of the u.S you have more pimps, police abuse,hate,like in U.S you can call a woman whore but you cannot call a gay faggot on a street double standar ,it is unlikely tobecame legal in U.S because of extremist conservatives who see religion as a form of control and extremist feminist who think men will control women when the reality the pimps control everyone when it is illigal, every country have prostitution ,legal and regulate will cut on human right abuse, but make it illigal it's stupid and self serving political view and these women have no where to go,race,nationality have nothing to do with it

No white guy calls people zebras except afroracists and black power idiots but this guy calls himself white although we know the only thing white on him is the whites of his eyes!
It´s unfortunate that Haitians can´t clean up their frickin disaster and want to feel good putting down a country that allows close to 2 million of their people there .I suggest this idiot go to Santiago and see what many of his compatriots do for a living although someone has to have a strong stomach and no fear to be with a Haitian.
