Abstract

Background: Prostitution is the act of providing sexual services to another person in turn for payment. A considerable number of studies have been conducted on sex work in Ethiopia though they have given little insight and understanding on the life of sex workers outside their work environment particularly their role as mothers. The aim of the study was to identify factors that induce females to prostitution life. Subjects and Methods: To meet this requirement I have already collected the data by using self-administered questionnaire, which was distributed to the respondents. The data was gathered from Gondar town using purposive sampling from a total of 56 individuals. The study used chi- square test of association and binary logistic regression. Results: A according to the study, 35.7% of the respondents problem to engage in prostitution life was income, 28.6% of the respondents problem to engage in prostitution life was peer pressure, 21.4% of the respondents problem to engage in prostitution life was internal feeling, 7.1% of the respondent problem to engage in prostitution life was dismissed from university. Finally, the majority of the respondents involved in prostitution life around 57.1% were interested to live with their parents. Conclusion: The study concludes that prostitute’s origin they came from, their educational level, economic status, their family size, their father not alive before they engaged in prostitution life have great association with prostitution life.
