In 1998, The New York Times published an article titled, "Many Prostitutes Suffer Combat Disorder, Study Finds". The author, Abigail Zuger, pointed to research demonstrating that two-thirds of prostitutes experience PTSD (more than twice the rate of Vietnam veterans).

The article quoted Dr. Melissa Farley, who stated, "Essentially, we need to view prostitution itself as a traumatic stressor."
