BBC NEWS | Programmes | From Our Own Correspondent | Grim life for Bangladeshi prostitutes

350 children live in a Bangladeshi brothel – they hide under the bed when a client calls. When the women get pregnant, many hope for daughters who in time will be able to join them working in the brothel. The women are paid 100 taka ($1.50) for sex, about the same you would pay for a couple of large bottles of fizzy drink.
