The cost of sex work

Sex work has always been a difficult topic for us to write about on our blog. We know there is a raging debate about sex work within the sexuality rights community and elsewhere - on the one hand, some believe that selling sex should be legalized and have the protections that others jobs possess, and on the other hand, others believe sex work is fundamentally an exploitative relationship that reaffirms the unequal relationship of men and women and between the haves and have-nots.

I think we'd be better off if we let actual sex workers do most of the talking in this debate. I stumbled across this particular account this morning and wonder what you think about it. This is an open thread.


  • It's a little strange, well, I am not sure if you would call it "strange," but rather, it's a unique perspective. "Confessions of a Call Girl" is a voice that is rarely heard of in the sexual studies arena. I guess the only thing I can say is if we could have more of these confessions it could pave way and have us understand the many shades of color sexuality can come in. And as they say, it is the oldest profession in the world.
