I want to hire a sex worker to help my mentally ill brother

I want to hire a sex worker to help my mentally ill brother | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

So hire a sex worker for your brother, SIS, if you think it will help—even if it just eliminates an excuse that’s blocking his progress—and there’s no need to drive to Nevada. Siouxsie suggests you look for an “experienced” (read: somewhat older) escort with an online presence in your area. A sex worker who’s over 25 or 30 and maintains her own website—and has write-ups on escort review sites—is not just far less likely to be trafficked or exploited, she’s far more likely to be experienced and patient. She may even have worked with men like your brother before.

Why the Sex Positive Movement is Bad for Sex Workers’ Rights

Why the Sex Positive Movement is Bad for Sex Workers’ Rights | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

During the sexual revolution of the 1960s and 1970s and the sex wars of the 1980s and 1990s, the struggle to define sex positivity with respect to sex work served a purpose. To say that not all people have a horrendous experience of the sex industry, and that many sex workers value sexuality and see themselves as complex sexual beings as well as sex educators was an important statement to make, and one that had not been spoken before. However, it is essential to put this statement in historical context. To continue making the statement that many sex workers have a good experience of the sex industry without also including those whose experiences are negative and making space for them to speak up reveals a deep doubt about the validity of the sex positive argument. If we believe in the positive power of sexuality, we must also examine what happens when people’s lives are infused with sex negativity, and we must listen and support people with this experience in sharing their personal truths.

School Offers Prostitution As A 'Professional Course'

School Offers Prostitution As A 'Professional Course' | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

A Spanish firm offering a professional course in prostitution which it says 'guarantees a job offer on graduation,' has survived its first legal challenge to be closed down.


For €100, students are taught the history of the world's oldest profession, how to use erotic toys and the most popular positions contained within the Kama Sutra.


The school began advertising the course in May, but within weeks the Valencian regional government filed a case with prosecutors, alleging that the school promoted prostitution, which is illegal in Spain But yesterday prosecutors said there was not any evidence that a criminal offence had been committed because advertisements for students did not promote prostitution, constitute fraud and were not aimed at minors, reported The Times.


The venture has attracted much criticism in the predominantly Catholic country, with many saying it is the wrong way to tempt cash-strapped Spaniards back into work.


But the Valencian firm, which flooded the city's university campus with promotional flyers, says it will make the trade safer.
It will also ensure budding sex-workers will not fall foul of the law, with in depth descriptions of the industry's laws and how to work around them.


Brandon, who has run the one-week course for eight years, said: 'They will know what they are getting in to.


'Prostitution is a career that many people live off from day to day, whether they are single or have a partner.'


He added that 95 people, from the age of 19 to 45, had signed up to the diploma - which takes up two hours each day.


And, once they graduate, they receive their first job offer - to become a teacher in the 'school' where they can help in practical classes.
What they learn in the series of theory and practical classes will enable them to 'earn a lot of money, very easily and quickly', according to the ABC newspaper.


Esther Lopez Barcelo, a United Left MP in Valencia, said the party was considering appealing the ruling.


Sex is a multibillion-pound industry in Spain, with colourfully lit brothels staffed mainly by poor immigrant women from Latin America, Africa and eastern Europe lining highways throughout the country.

Just Don’t Call It Slut-Shaming: A Feminist Guide to Silencing Sex Workers

Just Don’t Call It Slut-Shaming: A Feminist Guide to Silencing Sex Workers | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

The feminist movement really is in a pickle these days. It used to be a given that things like prostitution, pornography and stripping were bad, but nowadays there’s some resistance to these time-honoured notions. Women are increasingly coming out as sex workers and demanding rights. As feminists seek to shut down strip bars and criminalise clients, those women are complaining not just that they’ll lose their livelihood, but that they’ll be at increased risk of abuse and violence if their industries go underground! You can’t let such trivial concerns get in the way of your crusade, so below are some handy tips for discrediting these pesky meddlers.

Remember: being an actual sex worker doesn’t entitle her to speak about sex work!...
