Prostitution is the act of selling sex. Should be distinguished from forced prostitution, which is a form of slavery.

Etymology and use of the word

The term "prostitution" comes from Latin prostituere which literally means to expose something for sale. The word can be used figuratively to refer to "selling oneself" (wage slavery).
