Brothels are establishments specifically dedicated to prostitution.
Use of the word whore is widely considered pejorative, especially in its modern slang form of ho.There are about 42 million prostitutes in the world, living all over the world (though most of Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa lacks data, studied countries in that large region rank as top sex tourism destinations).Another explanation is that prostituta is a composition of pro and statuere (to cause to stand, to station, place erect).Those offering services to female customers are commonly known as gigolos; those offering services to male customers are hustlers or rent boys.Clients of prostitutes are sometimes known as johns or tricks in North America and punters in the British Isles.
