US prostitution study finds that pimps can pull in US$33,000 a week

The pimps often imposed daily quotas ranging from US$400 to US$1,000 and would often keep every dollar earned as a means of control, paying the prostitutes in food, housing, clothing and gifts.

They also, unsurprisingly, imposed strict rules.

Many prohibited prostitutes from using hard drugs because it made them unmanageable. Some said they wouldn't allow them to "date black dudes" or young men for fear they would get robbed, beaten or recruited by another pimp.

They typically ran relatively small operations of two to 36 people and sometimes employed drivers, bodyguards, and even nannies.

They said they took home anywhere from US$5,000 to US$33,000 a week, but detailed hefty expenses like hotel rooms, advertisement, and clothing, housing food or even tampons for their "girls."

The internet has helped many sex workers avoid the dangers of the street, although many said they still end up on the "stroll."

Police described their struggles infiltrating brothels, massage parlors and topless bars which cater to specific ethnicities — Latino, Asian or Russian and Eastern European men — and are often run by organized crime rings.

Officers in Dallas, which is known as a hotbed for prostitution, said they don't even bother with high-end escorts because the clients are so carefully screened.
