Juvenile prostitution is a crime and belongs to social pathologies. In spite of proportionally small number, it is burdened with grave consequences. Counteraction and prophylaxis are pivotal. In the work, the factors directing an adolescent to prostitution have been discussed on the basis of literature. We have isolated culturally social, family and environmental factors, i.e. proceeding from peers. Subsequently, we have presented hypothetical grounds directly leading towards juvenile prostitution.
