I understand you want to defend your work and honor (ironic), but I feel sorry for you.
But, good for you that you do it willingly. Most do not. Watch the documentary film 'Very Young Girls'. Yup, that's your industry. Glad you support it.”

“You "feel sorry" for us, the sex workers who enjoy what they do, who choose our revenue-generating strategies, who feel unashamed, proud even, of our role in the economic system? Who are YOU to feel sorry for us? Who are you to express pity? Who gave you this power? From where do you derive such a sense of entitlement?
There is no need to defend our work. Our clients--a large percentage of the male population (including your father, brother, cousin, best buddy, etc.) defend it with their wallets.
Let me ask you a question: How could you be so intellectually dense as to conflate the trafficking of children for sexual exploitation with the transaction of sexual arousal for money between/among two or more consenting adults? Adult prostitution and child sexual exploitation as manifest in human sex trafficking are NOT the same industries or phenomena. We do not condone or support human sex trafficking or child sexual exploitation.
At root, the End Demand architects believe that no woman can consent to sex for money. By logical extension this framework's logic dictates that women are incapable of choosing their sexual activities and choosing how they make money. As a feminist, I refuse to adopt any philosophy or support any law that frames all women as "victims" and, more important, fundamentally negates a woman's capacity to choose.
How do you like others making decisions and taking action "for your own good," without your consent? That's what's going on here.”
