Oldest job on Earth...HOW?

Im soo confussed, okay prostitutes have sex, sex often leads to pregnancy if there's no contraception but during those years (like thousands of years ago) how were they able to still be prostitutes and no have children? I mean, did they use contraception ? if yes then what?


They had herbal contraceptives until Christianity took hold and the Church destroyed many of the types of herbs that were effective in allowing women to control their fertility. Abortion was also possible, but not safe due to unsanitary conditions. A special type of wood was slipped into the cervix and caused an abortion. Some prostitutes did have children. Many abandoned them or committed infanticide. No one really noticed because they prostitutes.
