Barbara Terry is 52. She has managed to put two of her four children through college while working as a prostitute. She has even purchased a home in Upstate, New York all on the salary of a street walker.
Terry is still selling her body and has become a favorite at Rikers Island having been there more than 100 times.
It seems that women like Barbara who have fallen or chosen this lifestyle have made a decent living out of it even though the law prohibits it (in most places).
With women constantly going to jail for prostituting themselves but returning to the streets shortly after, should it be legalized?
After all it is, “the world’s oldest profession.”
