"These whores are so dirty, so filthy," said the policeman as he walked out of the red light area, "they corrupt society. They destroy our great culture." 

He paused for a moment and checked his pockets which were full of currency notes he had collected from these filthy, dirty whores. Once he was assured that he hadn't dropped any of the notes he continued towards his home cursing those filthy, dirty whores he met once a week.

hi dev,
your flash fiction story reminded me of a much longer one by guy de maupassant, "boule de suif." it also talks of society's double standards towards prostitutes.
