prostitute

n. a person who receives payment for sexual intercourse or other sexual acts, generally as a regular occupation. Although usually a prostitute refers to a woman offering sexual favors to men, male prostitutes may perform homosexual acts for money or receive payment from women for sexual services. A woman prostitute who is sent on a "date" to the hotel room or residence of a male customer is commonly referred to as a "call girl." (See: pander, panderer, prostitution)

See: betray, corrupt, deteriorate, misemploy, mistreat, pervert, pollute
