Say It Right Series


Posted by lydia1981 January 29, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

I do voluntary work for an organization that helps prostitutes (its a kind of union),

and i'd like to know how 'direct' or vulgar the following words are:


发廊妹 (for girls that work in so called 'hair salons' or 'massage salons')



Of course I don't want to use the term 'jinu', so i'm looking for alternatives that will be understood by insiders (without them being offended)

I also use the word


'entertainment business' as an euphemism for prostitution industry


Do you think Chinese women will know what i'm talking about?
