Sex Worker Activists…

Challenge the notion that there is something more harmful or dangerous about consensual sex than the risk of pulling a muscle

Question why street-based sex workers are more of a nuisance for local residents than that busker doing off-key Led Zeppelin covers

Wonder why people working for multi-national corporations that bulldoze old growth forests or exploit third world labour think we should get a real job

Ask why people who pay us for sex are exploiting us more than those who expect it for free

Think that if being rescued and rehabilitated involves working long hours, earning a pittance, doing uninspiring menial labour – we’ll stay in the gutter, thank you.
