I made a deliberate point of not doing a story about the sex trade in Cambodia -- a decision influenced largely by the fact that virtually every expat or NGO employee I spoke to in Phnom Penh asked me "whether you're going to do yet another story about prostitution in Cambodia."

They had a point -- the story, though valid and horrifying, has been done a million times.

That hasn't stopped The Economist, though, which coincidentally has a (rather disappointing) article on the subject in this week's edition.

It's available by subscription only, so here's a copy in Word and .txt formats.
