Sex work veteran hails changes over years

Sex work veteran hails changes over years | Sex History | Scoop.it
Cameron Cox started as a sex worker in Sydney when gay sex was illegal and now is a key figure in the industry, running the Sex Work Outreach Project. 

 

...

He credits the quick thinking of Sydney's sex workers with containing the spread of HIV.

 

 

"They introduced condoms to the Sydney," he said.

 

 

The latest HIV strategy from the federal government acknowledges HIV/AIDs has been almost eliminated in the sex work community which academics credit to decriminalisation of sex work in 1995.

 

 

Aside from the physical side of his job, Mr Cox often takes on the role of an unorthodox marriage counsellor.

 

 

"Sex workers often spend that last half hour on the end of the bed, looking at photos of kids and wives," he said.

 

 

"People think we're home wreckers, but a lot of the time we talk people down from leaving their families and encourage them to go back to their lives."

 

 

Like most people, Mr Cox tries not to bring his work home to his current partner of 15 years.

 

 

"People think sex work would be the main problem in a relationship, but sex workers are just as good as anyone at getting out of doing the washing up and forgetting to take the bins out," he said.

Marriage In My Lifetime & Yours - Sex~Kitten.net

Marriage In My Lifetime & Yours - Sex~Kitten.net | Sex History | Scoop.it

"The battle for equality was won years ago," some say ~ usually with a dismissive air, like we should just get over it because it's ancient history.

It's not over, and even the things we 'won' are like those 40 acres and mules ~ not here yet.

 

We may have come a long way, baby; but we're not there yet. In my lifetime I've seen, heard, and read plenty. Sometimes it's laughable ~ until you realize that real people lived this way, causing your heart to ache, your stomach to churn, and your ire to rise.

Gracie Passette's insight:

Can a husband legally force his wife to have sexual relations when she doesn't wish to? The answer and many other answers in Wives Legal Rights, by Richard T. Gallen, a Dell Purse Book, © 1965, will astonish and sicken you.

Elmer Gantry: A Reason To Get Up In The Morning

Elmer Gantry: A Reason To Get Up In The Morning | Sex History | Scoop.it

What may have begun as the vengeful opportunistic act of a lover scorned (deflowered and left to prostitution) is quickly shown to be more complicated, exposing more than unfinished business but unrequited feelings between the two.

The Knack (And How To Get It) In Romance & Fashion - Here's Looking Like You, Kid

The Knack (And How To Get It) In Romance & Fashion - Here's Looking Like You, Kid | Sex History | Scoop.it

The Knack… and How to Get It was a British film released in 1965 about the sexual revolution in swinging London-town, complete with a Greek chorus of disapproving members of society’s “older generation”. In the film, bookish teacher Colin (played by Michael Crawford) is frustrated by the womanizing ways of his housemate, Tolen (played by Ray Brooks).

 

The film opens with a series of mannequin-esque women in tight sweaters and short skirts, robotically waiting in line to get with Tolen.

Mocking Feminism in (Vintage) Advertising

Mocking Feminism in (Vintage) Advertising | Sex History | Scoop.it

How marketers sometimes co-opt social movements for corporate greed - and, in this case, misogyny. Which is not unlike what individual men have done themselves, twisting "being feminist" into a way to get laid.
