  1. Frequently the subject of erotic media, lately sex workers have taken center stage in a lurid tale designed to put them in jail and out of business. Policies such as California’s Prop 35 are pushed to combat the alleged growing threat of human trafficking while threatening the privacy, safety, and dignity of those in the sex trade. Sex worker and advocate Sabrina Morgan will uncover mainstream media’s fascination with sex slavery, how it impacts current policy and thought on sex work, how the sexualization of trafficking harms both sex workers and the coerced or trafficked, and how sex-positive culture and sex workers’ rights allies can effectively promote a message of consent culture and sexual justice to a media that discards nuance in favor of a juicy story.
