Prostitution in Egypt
Prostitution in Egypt is illegal. Police department officially combats prostitution but, like almost all other countries, prostitution exists in Egypt. The prostitutes in Egypt are Egyptian, Eastern European, and of many other nationalities.
Heterosexual prostitution was legalised in Egypt in 1882 by the British occupying administration. It was relatively more widely seen between approximately 1929 to 1958, a time of British occupation.
The prostitution system
The prostitution system in Egypt often depends on pimping, although women also work alone. Pimps in Egypt organize the work of a group of prostitutes and receive a percentage of their profits. This is called the network in Egypt. This system is mainly used in Cairo and Alexandria and other big cities.
