There are many unavoidable societal problems and when we try to deny them it gets more serious. Prostitution is one such problem. Prostitution is a reality and there is practically little prospect of disbursement. His mode of existence may have altered, but for society, it is still a sad fact. The lifestyle could have altered but the vision and perspective can still be seen. Prostitution is usually said to as “the oldest trade,” regrettably far from exaggerated. Prostitution in India is a major social problem and has become tough to resolve, but has always become a reality. Prostitution is a gender-specific phenomenon, like other forms of violence perpetrated by males against females; the vast majority of victims are girls and women and the perpeter is always men.
Moreover, it becomes a difficult effort to find an exact and full image, because of the large number of sneaky prostitution at all levels. It is a business that exploits, in full violation of its human rights, the vulnerability of human beings, in particular children and women, and makes them subject to financial transactions through the use of power and pressure, whether for sex, work, bondage, or slavery. In a globalized human resource world today, the world has consistently condemned and urged the government to take serious actions to counter this gross human resource infringement. This work essentially seeks to focus on the best way of examining the question of prostitution legalization in India. It would be better and safer for women to give it a legal mandate. The point is from another perspective to be grasped. The prostitutes need to be made aware of their rights and interests, education, health, freedom to choose or refrain from regular medical inspections, financial assistance, damage compensation, and other benefits. They should also have a platform to provide them with justice in the event of a major breach.
It might be predicted that as many as 10 million minors in prostitution worldwide according to proposals from diverse research studies conducted globally. Child prostitution is present in every country, regardless of its economic growth; in Asia and South America, the problem is noticed in its gravity. We can ensure that kids are removed from their trade by legalizing prostitution and taking stringent procedures to control them, thereby safeguarding their rights and their safety. Prostitution regulation would involve frequent physician checkups and proper birth control instruments to limit and vice versa risks of transmission from worker to consumer of sexual illnesses. It promotes cleaner working conditions, hence enhancing the health and safety of the process, which benefits both parties and society.
In 1998, research conducted in Australia showed that 63 illegal prostitutes had 80 times the prevalence of sexually transmitted bacterial diseases, as opposed to 753 legal brothels. Those who seek to satisfy their sexual urges use prostitutes instead of atrocious crimes like rapes for the same reason with a legal and easy alternative. As the brothels were shut down in 1959, the rape rate in Queensland grew by 149 per cent.
The entire industry will be subject to legal supervision once decriminalised, enabling legal defenders to detect forced prostitution cases and to assist victims of forced prostitution.
