Nope. Correct spelling should be : gzhang tshong ma or gzhang 'tshong ma. This is of particular use since the literal meaning is she (ma) who sells ('tshong or tshong) her anus (gzhang). Not all prostitute sell that. Or maybe you wanted to refer to male prostitutes (gzhang (')tshong pa). dGa' byed ma (she who makes you happy) would be a more delicate way of referring to this kind of social service.
