While it is no longer news that prostitution is on the increase,
teenage prostitution is a new phenomenon that is causing
worry in the society. Teenagers of secondary school age seem
to be competing with older women in a bid to sell their bodies
to men.

Mary Istifanus (not her real name) 15 is a senior secondary
school drop-out who has been sleeping with men for money.
One might think she is in denial as she sees the act as one that
is devoid of any personal gratification, saying:

"I am not a prostitute, I just hustle to make ends meet.
My father is dead and my mother who sells Akara can’t
take care of us."

She explains how she got into prostitution. “My class mates
introduced me to the trade. One day, they invited me to their
restaurant after school where some customers gave us
money. We were then invited to a particular hotel and since
then, that was how I started sleeping with men for money . I
was suspended from school for being rebellious and so I
stopped attending”.

Another underage prostitute, 17-year-old Grace who opened
up to LEADERSHIP said she was brought to Abuja from her
village in Nasarawa State to work for one Hajiya who sells
food in Garki Model market.
According to her, “Traders who we serve food to will dash us
money and tell us to meet them in a hotel in the night. I have
several boyfriends in the market; even the wheelbarrow boys
you think are poor can give a girl as much as N2,000 .
"This is how we make money and I send it home to my mother
to help them out.”
Nobody can say what is pushing teenage girls to prostitution;
most have blamed it largely on economic and social factors.
Dr Adeyinka Adetokunbo, a Gynaecologist, observes that
“teenage prostitution leads to negative effects on the totality of
the child later on in life. Most of them have little access to
healthcare and suffer extremely unhygienic conditions. It is
also common knowledge that prostitution promotes the spread
of HIV because most of their clients refuse to have protected
sex with the girls, believing that it will bring them fresh blood.
This early sexual intercourse causes a lot of damage to
children, including:
honeypotl tearing, physical after-effects of torture, pain,
infection, or unwanted pregnancy, depression, personality or
sexual orientation confusion, problems with behaviour,
insomnia and loss of self-confidence.”
She further explained that in most cases, these teenage
prostitutes end up with sexually transmitted diseases as
Chlamydia, gonorrhoea, herpes, human papilloma virus, HIV/
AIDS, staphylococcus and syphilis. They also experience
pelvic pain and inflammatory disease (PID), unwanted
pregnancy, trauma, stress, depression, anxiety, and risk of
self-mutilation, suicide and homicide.
Child psychologist, Peter Ishaya stated that child prostitution
is when underage teenagers start experimenting with sex
before their 18th birthday.
“The Jubilee Action report (1995) states that, up to 1 million
female children join prostitution each year around the world.
You can attribute the causes to poverty, unemployment, broken
homes, and lack of education, drugs, pornography, and
“Prostitution leaves young girls traumatised for years. They
end up not trusting anybody and become lazy because they
believe that they can make quick money by just sleeping with
a man. It also affects the way they treat people because they
sleep with men who are their parents’ age or older. Then they
tend to stop respecting adults,” he added.
Pastor John Abiyomi of Gods Light and Truth Ministry said:
“The Bible condemns prostitution under whatever guise. It
doesn’t matter the age of the person, God frowns against it. It
is written in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 that none of the daughters of
Israel shall be a cult prostitute, and none of the sons of Israel
shall be a cult prostitute. You shall not bring the fee of a
prostitute or the wages of a dog into the house of the Lord
your God in payment for any vow, for both of these are an
abomination to the Lord your God.”
He also quotes, “In Kings 14:24 ‘Or do you not know that the
unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be
deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor
adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves,
nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will
inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were
sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus
Christ and by the Spirit of our God’. The Bible also made
references to some people that practice prostitution in
Leviticus: ‘And there were also male cult prostitutes in the
land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations
that the Lord. So you can see from the verses that God frowns
at the practice of prostitution whether you are old or young.
Our bodies are the temple of the Lord and we have been
enjoined to keep it holy. For a prostitute is a deep pit and a
wayward wife is a narrow well. Like a bandit she lies in wait,
and multiplies the unfaithful among men.”
God forbids involvement with prostitutes because He knows
such involvement is detrimental to both men and women. He
continues, “For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, and
her mouth is smoother than oil; but in the end, she is bitter as
wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to
death, her steps lay hold of hell” (Proverbs 5:3-5 NKJV).
Prostitution not only destroys marriages, families, and lives,
but it destroys the spirit and soul in a way that leads to
physical and spiritual death. God’s desire is that we stay pure
and use our bodies as tools for His use and glory (Romans
6:13). First Corinthians 6:13 says, “The body is not for sexual
immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.”
Although prostitution is sinful, prostitutes are not beyond
God’s scope of forgiveness”.
