An open common toilet is seen at a brothel by the river Padma in Faridpur February 23, 2012. Living in squalid conditions prostitutes earn from 300 ($3.66) to 1000 taka ($12.19) a day servicing between 10 and 20 customers. Many teenage sex workers live in a painful life of exploitation in slum's brothels taking Oradexon , a steroid used by farmers to fatten their cattle, in order to gain weight and appear "healthier" and more attractive to clients.
