Can Sex Work Be a Positive Thing?

22 Nov

Well, it’s late and I’d really like to dive into this topic right now.. but it’s late and I need to go to bed, soon. But I ran across an interesting discussion about sex workers. It invoked a lot of emotions, a lot of opinions.. and I’m wondering what you think about legalized prostitution? and How do you view prostitution, strippers, fetish models, porn actors? Is it okay to be one? Why or why not?

GO!

Also, read this article called, “Redefining Sex Work.” It’s long, I’ll warn you.. but it’s fantastic. What do you think? Do you think it’s possible for it to be healthy? or no? Tell me! I wanna know!

    I think that you can be a sex worker and lead a healthy and productive life. It’s a service. While some may find it morally wrong, that’s their opinion. In many parts of the world it’s immoral for a woman to walk around in short shorts. In many countries it’s immoral for people to eat pork. Just because they believe it’s immoral doesn’t make it so. The US needs to quit attempting to legislate religion & they need to find better ways to catch child pimps and prostitutes. What they are doing is akin to banning guns from all Americans because some people use them to commit crimes.

    I absolutely believe it’s ok! Wonderful in fact, if you’re cut out for it. Of course, the general mentality about that kind of work is negative, but that’s just ignorance portrayed by the media and derived from people’s own insecurities and in some cases, religious beliefs (not going to touch that one) We should be able to use our bodies for expession (sexual or not) or monetary gain if we choose to. I believe there should be boundries, I don’t mean go walk the streets naked of course 🙂 but I’ll raise by voice any day to fight the ignorance and misconceptions against women who choose a more unorthodox and liberating way to make an income.
