Here are 4 videos that will connect you to the issues of sex slavery, prostitution, and virginity trade in Cambodia. Right now I’m working in Phnom Penh, Cambodia with a partner organization of CARE International called PHD. I’m writing grant proposals for their HIV/AIDS awareness and gender equality projects.
I have learned so much about the sex industry here from interviews with CARE and PHD and the many surveys and reports I’ve found in their offices. I’ll be writing a post in the upcoming weeks that explains the sex industry, the idea of Cambodian masculinity, and the repercussions of the situation for Cambodia. For now, watch the videos so that you have a visual image of what happens here. Just a warning, you may find them disturbing, especially the last one which is about child prostitution. Also if you have any questions use the comment box and I will make sure to find the answers for you.
