The Asian Sex Trade
The Asian Sex Trade is one of the world’s most unexploded horrors. Back in 1997 the majority of girls going into the sex trade were mostly Thai, now they account for less then 2 percent. Agents (or better known to us as “pimps”) are now looking for girls from the neighboring countries. Seven out of ten families have sold at least one daughter. The amount of trafficking of children done is absolutely horrendous. It isn’t known exactly just how many children are a part of the trade, but it is estimated to be around 1 million between the ages of 12-17 years of age. When prices vary from $100-$1000 it is easy for almost anyone to buy a child prostitute. Agents will come to the village with orders to fill, Thai men and foreigners, mostly Europeans, they can order girls like pizza. If they want a girl with thin hips and big breasts, or even a virgin the agents will find her, they always deliver. Drugs isn’t uncommon in this trade either, it is usually used for rejuvenation to prepare the girls to handle up to 8-9 men a night. It is said that a quarter are regular users of speed, barbiturates and heroin. “After having my body ravaged by several customers in a row, I just get too tired to move my limbs. At times like this, a shot of heroin is needed. This enables me to handle five or six men in a single night. I can\'t help but take the drug in order to keep myself in working condition.” This is only one of the stories of one girl’s night and it gets much worse then just drugs.

As a result of developing narcotic dependencies, the girls are addicted, and then, they are forced to work to support their habits. The girls are paid on meager salaries, while the majority of the money goes is used to the brothel owners and the drug traders.

It is common in such places as Brazil, Canada, Egypt, Germany, India, Iran, Kenya, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Peru Senegal, and the list goes on.

Sigmund FreudSigmund Freud Many believe Freud to be the father of modern psychiatry and psychology and the only psychiatrist of any worth. He is certainly the most well known figure, perhaps because sex played such a prominent role in his system. There are other psychologists, however, whose theories demand respectful consideration.

THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK THE HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK Punk rock is a style of music that originated in 1964 in New York City at an underground club called The Dom. This little known club at the time was the catalyst that started punk on the road to what it is today (History Punk). Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols was quoted saying; “Punk was created as a cure for boredom.” (Punk History). He sure has one thing correct; one certainly can not be bored while listening to punk rock.
