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.

How Will You Use It? New Website Let’s You Rate and Review Police Officers

How Will You Use It? New Website Let’s You Rate and Review Police Officers | Sex Work | Scoop.it


Americans find themselves in a state of flux in 2015. Many people are dealing with the hard reality that those who are sworn to protect and serve, often do the exact opposite.


The topic of police behavior is at the forefront of discussions, worldwide. Market reactions to this interest in responsible application of authority as well as interest in the abuse of authority, are popping up online.


Trying to rely on the system, to report on itself, has proven to be a futile task. In instances of police killings alone, the official method for tallying these deaths was shown to be incredibly skewed and inaccurate. 


The unaccountable nature of the state, coupled with today’s network of technologically savvy activists has paved the way for third party accountability sites that are proving to be quite helpful in the struggle for justice.


Up next in the world of answerable innovation is the site CopScore, aptly named for its interface which allows users to submit, “officer performance reviews.”


Anyone can register in a matter of seconds upon going to the site. However, in order to submit a review on an officer, you must know his or her name, department, and title. The form also requires that the registrant specify whether or not the officer arrested them.


If you actually want to post a performance review on CopScore, you will need to sign in and provide the officer’s badge number as well.


The site’s creator, Arion Hardison, explains that he, “put the badge number there because I did not want people posting fake reviews.”

“I wanted only people that had an actual interaction with the Cop to be able to vote,” said Hardison.

Lust Cause: Valley phone-sex operators claim they're getting screwed

Lust Cause: Valley phone-sex operators claim they're getting screwed | Sex Work | Scoop.it
Seductively guiding callers through several dozen fantasies a night, X estimates that she's "serviced" more than 40,000 clients during her phone-sex career. Multiply that by thousands of other operators scattered around the country and it's easy to see that billions of dollars are at stake. Just how many is anyone's guess. Although phone-sex operations are legal, the Wall Street Journal has characterized the business as a "shadowy" industry dominated by perhaps fewer than a dozen companies, none eager to publicize its inner workings.

All of which infuriates Madame X, who perceives herself and other operators as crucial players in the industry.

"If Michael Jackson does his dance on the stage, you pay him," she says, fuming. "If Michael Jordan puts that damn ball through the hoop, you pay him. In this business, I'm the one who makes the payoff, so give me the money. And stop treating me like trash just because I'm in the sex industry."

Intimate Photos Offer a Glimpse into the Life of a 21-Year-Old Sex Worker (NSFW) - Feature Shoot

Intimate Photos Offer a Glimpse into the Life of a 21-Year-Old Sex Worker (NSFW) - Feature Shoot | Sex Work | Scoop.it
For Eden, Mexico City-based photographer Alicia Vera captures moments in the life of a 21-year-old sex worker living in San Francisco. Vera met Eden three years ago while photographing a project on a strip club, where the 18-year-old had recently begun work. As the photographer began to form an intimate bond with her subject, what started as a wider exploration of women’s rights and female sexuality became a nuanced foray into the experience of one woman.

An Adult Search Engine For Adults: Boodigo | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Boodigo was created by site operators and content creators who are also experienced search engine users and advertisers, so we have experienced the best and worst that search engines have to offer. In crafting Boodigo, we’ve eliminated the aspects of other search engines that annoyed or troubled us, and emphasized the elements that made search engines such indispensable tools for navigating the Internet in the first place.

Boodigo is designed to return accurate adult entertainment search results for our customers in a secure, private and anonymous environment. Boodigo does not use cookies or other user-tracking technologies to gather information about our users. We aren’t interested in building a “profile” on our users; our core mission is simply to help you find what you’re looking for in a way that’s as efficient, effective and enjoyable as possible. In other words, using Boodigo means finding what you’re looking for without having to worry about what someone else might be finding out about you, at least not from us.

Boodigo also proactively eliminates sites from its responses that are known by us security threats, distributors of malware or perpetrators of fraud, and works with rights-holders to ensure that unlicensed and illegal copies of their creative works are not found in our search results. This helps ensure that when you download content and materials you find through Boodigo, you’re downloading only what you intended to, free of viruses or spyware, and free of intellectual property concerns, too.
