ABSTRACT

The sexual concept of people always changes with the times. Influenced by the times, when producing their works with prostitutes as their literary theme, writers often add the contemporary awareness to their subjective artistic tendency. Therefore, the prostitute image under their pen not only bears their subjective factors, but also reflects the changes of people in different historical periods in sexual awareness and sexual concept. This indicates that not only does the sexual role of prostitutes stay at the level of the physiological problem, but also the connotation of their sexual role has been in intense clash and unbreakable connection with social moral views and ethics of two different sexes for a long time, thus having resulted in natural kinked relationship between prostitutes and sexual culture. The evolution of prostitute image not only enables us to understand the history of the miserable life of women living in the lower stratum of the society, but also propels us to give an in-depth consideration to the future of women.
