The Islamic injunction against extramarital sex adds to the complexities that prostitution has brought to Pakistani society.

This is a scholarly, yet sympathetic, analysis of an area no one admits to have visited, and which nevertheless flourishes under the eyes of the guardians of law and public morality.
