  1. Frequently the subject of erotic media, lately sex workers have taken center stage in a lurid tale designed to put them all in jail and out of business. Sabrina Morgan takes us on an in depth analysis of how the media and the public is trained to see all sex workers.
  2. Because of the way the laws are written, sex slavery and trafficking are under reported. There is no reward for those who report or self-report--they can still be punished or deported after being victimized. And that feeds fear inside and outside the industry.
  3. The issue with current sex traffic legislation and media representation is that it covers all consensual sex work as well. The definition of "sex trafficking" makes no concession for consent, making the assumption that no one could or would ever consent to sex work.
  4. To expand on that idea, many of us have limited choices in terms of employment. It would be better not to assume that no woman could ever make a willing choice to engage in sex work.
