What is Sex Work? (For Friends, Family, and Allies of Sex Workers)

The first step to understanding and accepting a friend or loved one’s choice to be a sex worker is to learn about sex work and to listen with suspended judgment to sex workers themselves. The articles and videos below (many of which are from the perspectives of sex workers themselves) provide some background on sex work and the harm reduction model.

Sex workers are a diverse group. We vary in race, gender, age, nationality, socioeconomic status, and by the type of sex work that we do. But most of us agree that it is only by listening to sex workers that our friends, family members, lovers, and allies can begin to re-examine, question, and hopefully work through the prejudices, stereotypes, and cultural stigma surrounding the work we do.
