During the Vietnam War, a whole sex industry for American servicemen emerged. Moths gathered in bars where Americans often had fun and offered their services. After the war, about 50 thousand children of American-Vietnamese origin were born, who were mockingly called bui doi (translated as "the dirt of life").

Many Vietnamese women were forced into prostitution against their will, lured by promises of well-paid work while the country was torn apart by war. Of course, most women practically did not see money — they were taken away by pimps or owners of bars where American soldiers gathered. Sometimes women were injected with silicone so that their figures became more curvy and Americans felt "at home" with Asian women. 

Vintage Everyday portal, specializing in historical collections, has published a series of photos in which girls working in bars appear in a natural environment for themselves.
