Why the 'End Demand' Approach to Sex Work Doesn't Work

Why the 'End Demand' Approach to Sex Work Doesn't Work | Sex Work | Scoop.it
"End demand" campaigns, like the one suggested in a recent RH Reality Check commentary, are based on the false characterization of clients of sex workers as rapists, and perpetuated by the prostitution-as-violence camp. This is nothing but misogyny, pure and simple.

Sex Work 101 Inteview | Sex Work | Scoop.it

I appreciate the opportunity to share some of my life with you. Please be aware that these answers are mine alone, and do not represent the entirety of sex work. These questions are answered from the experience of a female-bodied, white, indoor, independent prostitute. I have a very specific experience and encourage you to seek out the stories of others, specifically transgender and street-based sex workers, as I do not have experience or sufficient information in those categories.

Koreans could once be sure that their children would look after them in their old age, but no longer - many of those who worked hard to transform the country's economy find the next generation has other spending priorities. As a result, some elderly women are turning to prostitution.

The Erotica Queen

The Erotica Queen | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Sex sells. No doubt. But writing on sex and sexuality is not easy, especially when one has to clarify innumerable times that she is not selling porn but erotica. "The difference between erotica and porn is the line that separates sex from sensuality. It is extremely unfortunate erotica is considered same as porn," says Sreemoyee Piu Kundu, writer of Sita's Curse which in her own words is India's first feminist erotica. "It has been the greatest challenge – to resurrect an age-old Indian cultural tradition, while also trying to adapt the genre to the changing mind and body of a modern Indian protagonist," she says.

Gracie Passette's insight:

Some hair-splitting to denounce "porn", but worthy of a read ~ esp for the Indian cultural POV & points about sex ed.

Decriminalizing Prostitution | Criminal Law

Decriminalizing Prostitution | Criminal Law | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Prostitution is illegal in 49 of the 50 states, Nevada being the sole exception. But, some people believe that paid sex is so entrenched in our society that the focus should not be prosecuting it, but rather keeping it clean and safe. Others argue that it’s impossible to strip prostitution of exploitation, harassment, and violence, and that outright prohibition is the only tenable approach.

Is Prostitution Any of the Government’s Business?

In 2003, the Supreme Court acknowledged an adult's right to engage in private, consensual sex, by ruling that adults have a constitutional right to engage in private, homosexual conduct if they so choose. (Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003).)  Although the Supreme Court was careful to state that its ruling didn’t apply to prostitution, some argue that this ruling should be extended—that private, consensual sexual conduct should be allowed even where money changes hands.

Peter MacKay's proposed new law could drive sex workers back underground

Peter MacKay's proposed new law could drive sex workers back underground | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Justice Minister Peter MacKay thinks that sex work is inherently dehumanizing.


Those who do such work, the Minister says, are victims to be helped, not criminals.


Nonetheless, in the new, proposed sex work legislation the Minister tabled in the House on Wednesday he would render illegal at least some of what those "victims" do.


For instance, the proposed legislation makes it against the law to advertize sexual services.


Such a prohibition, sex workers and their advocates say, would make it much more difficult for prostitutes to ply their trade in safe, indoors places.

Will the Entire Porn Industry Be Forced to Move to Nevada?

Will the Entire Porn Industry Be Forced to Move to Nevada? | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Another wave of porn regulation is here: On May 27, Assembly Bill 1576, a statewide expansion of Measure B, passed the California Assembly.


...AB1576 takes Measure B a step further and imposes an additional mandate on STI testing than the ones currently used by porn performers, and requires that all producers disclose those records with the Department of Industrial Relations, a clear violation of privacy.


Assemblyman Isadore Hall (D-Los Angeles) introduced the bill, and Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, sponsored it. The bill is scheduled to move to the California State Senate sometime after June 15.


We should be cheering, right? HIV = bad. Condoms = good. Condoms + people who fuck for a living = less HIV for all!


Except that many people in the sex industry feel that this issue is more about body autonomy than about public health.
