A memoir by a year-old language student and a book of interviews with undergraduate sex workers has shocked France , lifting the lid on a practice which appears to be increasingly common. A new study showed a large online market for student prostitutes, describing how male clients, who are often rich, married executives, advertise online for young, undergraduate "escorts" whom they prefer to street prostitutes. One student union estimated that 40, students are working as prostitutes. She said the government had not done enough to "concentrate efforts" on helping poor students juggle conventional part-time jobs.
Her parents - a nurse and a labourer earning just above the minimum wage - could not support her, but their jobs meant she did not qualify for aid. Once, she asked a client for a laptop computer as payment. He brought one to their hotel meeting, but subjected her to violent sadism without her consent.
Eva Clouet, author of the book of interviews with student sex workers and clients, said those who had spoken out wanted a review of student aid, an increase in purpose-built student housing and the ability to combine normal part-time jobs with a university workload.
France's education minister has vowed to improve student financial support after a series of accounts by undergraduates working as prostitutes.
