Many of the guys in young generation find their body marketing to be the best alternative when get engaged in prolonged criminal activities. Some are exploited to use their body for sexual intercourse as well. Basically problem lies where youngsters’ counseling is concerned, before teens are suggested about authenticity of life and culture they already had been abused sexually.

Prevailing folks exploit them, use them for sexual pleasure and pay for that but in turn they receive another horrible award in form of HIV. There are also out-of-school guys and those living in utter poverty; these teenagers can’t access to good quality health procedures because they can involve in sexual activity at very young age.
