In earlier days, the thoughts that people of Chennai had about the female escorts in their city were very insulting to the female community. Earlier the female escorts in Chennai were looked upon as those set of females who would do anything for sex. The people were of the opinion that these independent escorts were of the desire for sex and nothing else. The people never considered any other reasons why the escorts had to take up the job or it is their decision to be an escort or were they forced to be one.
never really cared for the feelings of these escorts and always ended up treating them badly. They were not allowed to enter the common streets which the common people used to live in and in some cities of Chennai they were not even allowed to enter the city as well. They were always supposed to stay out of the city and they had to live in poorly build house in the outskirts of the city. There was a separate community for them and this community was not supposed to mingle with any other community as such. They were not allowed to travel with the common people nor were they allowed into the sacred places. Such was the treatment they had to face from the society.
