Kilo Sepuluh is 10 kilometers outside the town of Timka (hence the name) in West Papua. Kadun Jaya, as Kilo Sepuluh is officially known, houses 380 prostitutes..In 2000 the village did not exist. Before that time the prostitutes could be found in Tamika itself. The Freeport mining company wanted to make prostitution less accessible, because many of their mostly male employees, were spending time at the brothels in Timika and not returning to work. So the prostituses from Timika were brought to Kilo Sepuluh, and the local government pays local brothel owners to manage the village.
