A person (usually a woman) who sells his/her body to be used for lewd acts by (often crazy) strangers for money
(or other forms of payment). In other words: fucking
/sexual acts for money; prostitution is only about the money, not about sexual pleasure.
Prostitutes (especially the lowly streetwalker) are often targets for rapists, murderers, and other criminals since they make themselves especially vulnerable to attack. Their managers, known as pimp
s, are often abusive to prostitutes and are known to exploit them.
Many women (mothers included) who are in economic trouble often have little choice but to prostitute themselves as a sure way to support themselves.
I would say that Ann Coulter
is a prostitute, but that's putting it too lightly for that bitch.
