Support Hos: Game of Thrones

Support Hos: Game of Thrones | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Game of Thrones, HBO’s biggest show, is bringing the fantasy genre to the masses in a major way. Featuring a sprawling cast and storyline that’s been pared down from George R.R. Martin’s series A Song of Ice and Fire, it’s full of fantastic performances, high production values, international sets and scenery, and some of the most exciting and tense moments on television.


It is also filled with violence against women, particularly, the sex workers who inhabit the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

Vloasis's curator insight, June 27, 3:26 PM

A thoughtfully-written article coming from an angle you may not have considered: that of a sex worker. The struggle to be safe in that industry (if such a thing is ever possible) is something that Game of Thrones tends to sidestep by largely focusing on male-centric points of view.

Reporting on ROSE: A Journalist’s Work In Phoenix

Reporting on ROSE: A Journalist’s Work In Phoenix | Sex Work | Scoop.it

We often have cause to complain about media coverage of sex work, but we haven’t had occasion to talk about how good stories can be edited into inadequate ones as they travel from reporter to final outlet. The fate of Jordan Flaherty‘s story about Project ROSE (Reaching Out to the Sexually Exploited) is a great opportunity to look at what happens when a journalist tries to show the public the whole story but is met with resistance from his employer.

Beauty Is In The Lies Of The Beholder: What You Didn't Know About The Modeling Industry | Sex Work | Scoop.it

I recently, again, watched Natalie Wood’s Gypsy (1962). While the film is stunning — as rich & saturated in period color as it is fashion and sex appeal, I’m always...
