If you found this website it is because you are looking for answers about prostitution. We are the alternative to the BS you will find on Melissa Farley's website: http://www.prostitutionresearch.com where you will read some of the most blatantly biased, subjective "prostitution information" on the internet.
We want you to visit her website and others like it and then come back to our website to read our comments on her very non-objective "statistics" and tell you the truth about sex work. Yes, it is 'sex work" because for the majority of those who are sex workers, it is a job. For some, it is a good job- and for others, it is not something they ought to do, but for whatever reason they are doing it. There are millions of people all over the world who have jobs they hate, jobs which they do out of desperation so that they can feed themselves and their families. Being employed in a job that one does not enjoy or even like is not a legitimate reason to ban the work or to punish those who employ unhappy individuals. If it were, we'd have to shut down every factory, fast food joint and just about every other place where people work who may or may not like their job. Every employer would be behind bars, including the supervisors of local/state/ federal employees... the cost of incarcerating all those employers would be such that there would be no money left for any other purpose whatsoever. Rational people understand that we don't punish employers who do nothing to their employees except offer them employment. We don't forbid people from taking jobs they may not like. Unfortunately, all common sense flies out the window when people talk about prostitution.
