In India, many daughters are sold into slavery prostitution. This usually happens when the girl is 10 and ready to begin her prostitution career. They are sold in the name of the Hindu Goddess Yellamma. We look at being a religious prostitute in India. Local sex worker Anitha invites us for lunch in her brothel; shows us her homemade “sex rooms,” and tells us what it’s like to be a religious prostitute in modern India.
DocumentaryStorm looks at the mystery behind the Goddess Yellamma and how it is linked to religion. Religion is used as the main tool to justify prostitution.
For the grand finale we went to the annual full moon festival in Saundatti, the most prestigious event in the Devadasi calendar.
