ABSTRACT

Prostitution is the business or practice of engaging in sexual relations in exchange for payment or some other benefit. Though very common in society, this is one segment of population which is not studied psychologically in depth. Very few researches are reported in literature which studies them from the perspective of positive psychology. The present study is one such attempt. The objective of the present study is to measure Self-Efficacy and Positive Life Orientation in prostitutes and general population female. The sample of the present study comprised of 50 general population female and 50 prostitutes. Before formulating the assumption, a pilot study was done which led to the understanding that prostitutes do feel a sense of accomplishment. The result of the study, however, do not support the assumption formed that prostitutes will be higher on self-efficacy and positive life orientation. . The present study result shows that Self-Efficacy is higher in general population female than prostitutes and no such difference in Positive Life Orientation in both the population.
