The sex profession is legal in only a few parts of the world. This is one of the disadvantages of being a commercial sex worker. Since the work is illegal, they are often threatened with fines, incarceration, and other legal sanctions. A commercial sex worker is also more prone to physical abuse and other forms of abuses. They are also more at risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases.
