The Contemporary ‘Cult Of The ‘Sex-Worker”

In certain social circles praising sex-workers has become fashionable. How has prostitution – an out-dated, slavery-like industry – been made to look so modern?

The term ‘sex-work’ conveys neutrality, and in doing so it desensitises us to violence and disguises the exploitation of women in the UK and globally. As long as prostitution exists women and men will never be free from patriarchy. Prostitution should be abolished, for all our sakes.
