To make her quota of $1,000 every night, Amber says she sometimes had to have sex with as many as 20 men in a day. If she didn't make her quota, she says her pimp would beat her mercilessly. "I can't see straight sometimes still because of [the beatings]," she says. "My vision goes blurry and I'll see double sometimes."
Amber says she suffers from other negative effects of her life as a prostitute. "You don't feel like a person anymore," she says. "You don't feel any emotion. It takes your dignity and your self-respect, self-esteem. It strips you of it."
