Us, Sex Workers: Means for a Meaning

Us, Sex Workers: Means for a Meaning | Relationships & Recreation | Scoop.it
What an irony: the practitioners of the world’s oldest profession are still bound to justify that theirs is indeed… a profession. “Sex work is work,” an assertion in the face of the popular stigma surrounding prostitution, has nonetheless become an international slogan to unify sex workers from around the globe. National and trans-national organisations are now able to bring forth the cause of millions of workers. But few would rejoice when assessing today’s scene...

Why does the bank care how you make your money as long as it's legal. If this person is 18 or older they have every right to make their own videos and sell them on the internet.


If you can make a living from that I say... More power to you!


Bank executives need to get over themselves and stop judging how people make their money and stick to the business of protecting it.

The gorgeous vintage S&M of trailblazing pornographer Jacques Biederer | Relationships & Recreation | Scoop.it
 
Jacques Biederer’s erotica is unique for a few reasons. The Czech photographer began his Parisian career in 1913 doing G-rated portraits, but then moved to more prurient subject matter—though still fairly “conventional” sexy materials for the day—ladies in their underwear, really. Then Biederer moved more toward full-on classical nudes, sometimes with couples, sometimes shot “on location” outdoors or on a carefully arranged set. Then he got into fetish photography—whips, domination, corseting,

The Implications of Phone Sex For the Male Caller

The Implications of Phone Sex For the Male Caller | Relationships & Recreation | Scoop.it

I want to say, first of all, that I am not a fundamentalist Christian, a sexual Puritan, or anything of the sort. Secondly, I want to say that I understand that some women -especially in this severe recession- are increasingly desperate to earn money to help support their families.
Having said this, I want to ask a question of the women who frequent this forum who a) have worked in phone sex, or b) are interested in joining the phone sex industry: do you ever consider the implications of phone sex for the men who are paying for phone sex?
I know men who have had their marriages almost destroyed because of their indulgence in phone sex -something that many women consider to be "cheating." I've known men who have spent thousands of dollars -often money they really couldn't afford to spend- on phone sex, and who suffered severe economic consequences as a result. (The U.S. Federal Minimum Wage is $7.20 an HOUR, while many phone sex companies are charging men $2.50 per MINUTE, or more.)

 

Does nobody see this business as exploitative? As morally questionable?

 

I've read occasionally about the psychological toll that working as a pso can take on a woman. What is not given voice to -based on my experience anyways- is the psychological toll that can be taken on the clients who frequent this sort of service.

 

Again, I know several men who have been very deeply hurt emotionally as a result of their ongoing indulgence in phone sex, with a pso they believed they had developed a "relationship" with.

Red-Blooded Thing: Pros

Red-Blooded Thing: Pros | Relationships & Recreation | Scoop.it
Pretty Woman, Milk Money, Risky Business, they all make prostitutes out to be mystical, complex creatures that exist outside of normal reality and when you cross paths with one your life will change, when in reality there's an exchange of services for money in a unmagical capitalistic way. On the other hand, the opposite view of prostitutes as dirty, dangerous, and harmful is similarly counteracted by legalization's emphasis on health and cleanliness.
