An Overview of U.S. Efforts to Combat Demand For Prostitution and Trafficking Sex

An Overview of U.S. Efforts to Combat Demand For Prostitution and Trafficking Sex | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Tue, Feb 24, 2015


Most law enforcement operations enforcing prostitution laws are driven by community complaints, and by the role of commercial sex in generating numerous felonies such as aggravated assault, sex and drug trafficking, and negatively impacting neighborhood quality of life. Police in over 1,100 U.S. cities and counties have conducted either street-level or web-based sting operations targeting men buying sex, and courts apply a wide range of criminal and civil penalties to those arrested – including auto seizure, community service, john schools, “dear john” letters, SOAP orders, and driver’s license suspension.

This webinar provides an overview of the 12 major tactics used to combat demand for commercial sex, and an introduction to a website containing resources offering operational information and pragmatic guidance about implementing these tactics.

Attendance is strictly limited to the first 500 who register.

Murdered St Kilda prostitute Tracy Connelly was ‘easy prey’ says former sex worker | Sex Work | Scoop.it
UPDATE: MORE than 100 mourners have gathered in St Kilda to make a pledge to murdered sex worker Tracy Connelly and other victims of violent crime: you will not be forgotten.
Gracie Passette's insight:

Did not care for this "sex work does attract the worst human beings" line; it would be more accurate to say that "vulnerable populations attract the worst human beings."

XBIZ 360 to Examine ‘The Disruption of Porn’

XBIZ 360 to Examine ‘The Disruption of Porn’ | Sex Work | Scoop.it
XBIZ will examine the factors affecting modern-day porn and what they mean to consumers and industry professionals alike in a special seminar at the XBIZ 360 Adult Film Conference next week.
Gracie Passette's insight:

Jiz Lee, a genderqueer pron star & writer, will moderate the session:

 

“In the absence of comprehensive sex education, people use porn to learn about sex—what sex looks like, who gets to have it, and what it means to be sexy,” Lee said. “On its own, that's fine. But a limited example of what porn is has the danger in dictating what's 'normal,’ raising issues in our understanding of sexual health, and also our sexual psyche. Diversity in porn lets us find ourselves in the erotic landscape, proving we are all capable and deserving of love."
