Prostitution in Egypt is illegal. Little is known about the practice of prostitution in ancient Egypt. The Turin Erotic Papyrus depicts women, possibly prostitutes, engaged in sexual acts with men. Permanent body adornment such as tattoos, appearing as dotted diamond shapes on the thighs of figurines and mummies, or as images of the god Bes , are seen on depictions of professional entertainers and prostitutes. Strabo , writing about Roman Egypt, recounts that daughters of noble families could be given into the service of the god Amun or Zeus ; she was said to become a prostitute, engaging in sex with whomever she likes, until the onset of menstruation. As in the rest of the Roman Empire, prostitution was regulated.

Victims of sexual abuse in Egypt are to get anonymity after a high-profile case that saw scores of women use social media to accuse a male student of multiple assaults. Under the proposals, victims' identities could only be revealed to a court and to defendants upon request. The current attention to the issue began with a rare social media campaign in which women revealed their experiences of alleged abuse. Last week an Instagram account called Assault Police was set up to publish allegations of rape, sexual harassment and blackmail by dozens of women against student Ahmed Bassam Zaki, who is reportedly from a wealthy family. Mr Zaki was subsequently arrested and on Monday Egypt's public prosecutor charged him with indecent assault against at least three women, including one who was a minor at the time.
