The converse is suggested for women; when sullied, even washing won’t rinse off all the dirt. Two one-hour documentaries not long ago, and each offers wrenchingly sympathetic insights into the world of Cambodian prostitutes.

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — Cambodia, unfortunately, has the infamous reputation as a center for child sex trafficking.

Thousands of children in Cambodia each year are forced into sex trafficking, contributing to the growing amount of sex tourism.

Government officials have even acknowledged accepting bribes to let sex trafficking slide.

Their position of authority allows them to skirt any consequences.
