Prostitution flourished elsewhere for money or for whatever reasons. It is considered illegal and immoral in the country. This study aims to determine the different lifestyles, experiences, causes, modus operandi, transactions, performances and effects of relationships of the respondents. Qualitative research through case study approach was utilized. Ten respondents were used during the information gathering having the following criteria: not having more than 16 years of age, who engaged in prostitution. Cabanatuan City, Philippines was the locale of the study. Prior consent was established before the study was conducted. The data gathered were statistically treated using frequency count, percentage, and weighted mean. Survey questionnaires, interviews, observations and focus group discussion were the instruments used. Results revealed that different lifestyles, varied causes, modus operandi, transactions, and performances lure their customers. Poverty, being abandoned, sexual trauma, revenge, hopelessness and curiosity were the causes of the problem.
