Abstract

Previous studies on commercial female sex workers reported that the number of commercial female sex workers spreading throughout Denpasar city and its surroundings is 250 persons and 14% of them had been infected with HIV/ AIDS (Human Immunodeficiency Virus/ Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). However, referring to the data in the City Health Service of Denpasar, the number of direct commercial female sex workers throughout Sanur area in 2017 is 450 persons. The study was performed based on qualitative research design. A purposive sampling technique was implemented by selecting 15 informants. These 15 informants consisted of: the direct commercial female sex workers, pimps, and customers, which were approached based on in-depth interviews. The results of data analysis showed that during sexual intercourses not all the direct commercial female sex workers applied the use of condoms. The leading reason was the male partners disliked the condoms in the sexual intercourse. However, it is also found that economic factor had given rise to avoiding the condom use. It should be noted well that using condoms during sexual intercourse decreases the growing number of the direct commercial female sex workers.
