Abstract

This paper examines the development of Chinese prostitution in pre-communist China during the Mao regime and the post-Mao era, drawing lessons from the Chinese Government’s efforts to eradicate prostitution. It discusses the relationship between prostitution and sexual disease, and argues that China’s market economy, lack of religious beliefs and diverse cultures have contributed to the revival of prostitution in the post-Mao era. In order to effectively control the problem, it is necessary to adopt a comprehensive approach to change Chinese people’s beliefs and ways of life.
