Anonymous asked: There are some women working as prostitutes because they have to, i do not blame them. they are sex slaves, it is estimated that today there are more than 1 million sex slaves (including children) it is very sad. people i blame are those, doing this "job" because they get better money. of course it is cool to have a job where you only have to open your legs for less than 30 mins and then get 50 euros, instead of getting a degree and doing some decent thing. how can u even support that!

Okay…  I no longer run this blog, but I feel like I should answer this…  I would reply privately if you were not anonymous…

The data that estimates that there are 1 million sex slaves worldwide is heavily skewed, and you can pretty much read that anywhere (if only you bothered to do your research!).  People who are estimating the amount of child sex slaves worldwide heavily skew their data, so that they can include more people in their numbers.  They do this because it will make you feel bad — and if you feel bad, you might donate money to their cause.  Here is an excerpt from Global Sex Workers: Rights, Resistance, and Redefinition, pg 44:

According to a United Nations report on trafficking in Burma, ‘With the growth of sex tourism and the commercial sex trade in neighboring countries of the region, child abuse and exploitation has assumed a new form: sexual trafficking of children across international borders…  the number of Myanmar [Burma] girls working in Thai brothers has been conservatively estimated at between 20,000 to 30,000, with approximately 10,000 new recruits brought in yearly.  The majority are between 12 and 25 years old.’

If you were to use Western standards of adulthood, anyone over the age of 18 is an adult not a child.  This would mean that a whooping “30,000” child sex slaves drops to approximately 11,520 — that is a drastic difference.  Child sex slavery is terrible, but it is not happening at the rate they would have you believe.

Also:

  1. Decriminalizing prostitution would actually make it easier to pinpoint sex traffickers.
  2. Many sex workers do have degrees and they see sex work as a viable source of income.  (However, there are also many sex workers who don’t have degrees and/or may not be doing sex work because they want to.)
  3. "Decent" is a subjective term.
  4. The people that you should blame for sex trafficking are sex traffickers.  You should also blame poor economic conditions that push people into these situations.

Sorry, folks, I couldn’t ignore this one.  Feel free to voice your opinions on this subject, though.

I have decided to stop posting on Sex Work is Real Work, despite receiving many responses telling me to keep it.  I have wanted to for several months now, but I couldn’t quite let go of it.  When I created this blog, it was just for me and the few people that I thought would read it (i.e. my friends).  However, this blog has turned into a much bigger deal that I had anticipated, and I just don’t enjoy running it anymore.  A few of you have said that you do not think that I am overstepping my boundaries as an ally, but I personally feel that I have been toeing that line for awhile now.  

I will keep this blog up for people to read it, but I will not post here anymore.  Perhaps I will change my mind in the future, but I currently consider my time here over.  I have a personal blog that you are free to follow if you wish, and I will occasionally post things about the sex industry there.  However, I mostly just post random things from my personal life (my cats, food, etc), politics (gender, queer, etc), music, and photography (both personal and not) — it is nothing like this blog, so don’t follow me if you are just looking for some sort of replacement for Sex Work is Real Work.  If you want to follow other blogs about sex work, here are my personal favorites:

Again, here is my personal blog: pumpkin soup

Anyway, you all take care.

Anonymous asked: Hi it's the same girl from before, I think I sounded a bit mean in the last message & didn't really get my point across, I just mean i'd hate the idea of some wee girl seeing this blog and thinking "yeah i'll be a prostitute, it's real work, i'll be fine." Because honestly sex work is not just a regular job. I've been raped, beaten, and called every name under the sun, and I just don't like it when people glamourise it, because i'd hate for ANYBODY to go and try it, thinking it'll be empowering.

Oh, I think I have a better understanding of where you are coming from now.

I honestly didn’t think I was glamorizing the profession, nor did I think anyone would look at my blog and decide they want to be a sex worker.  I can sort of see why you say that though.

There are plenty of other blogs that can provide a realistic, more well-rounded view of the sex industry.  I started this blog around the time I conducted my research on the sex industry last year.  This blog was a means to document the articles and books I read, the videos I saw, and any thoughts I had.  This blog was never meant to speak for sex workers or take their voices away from them, and I truly hope I don’t do that.  I have always been honest about that.

I have been considering deleting this blog, or making it private, for some time now.  This blog was the easiest way for me to organize everything I was learning at the time of its creation, and I made it public because I thought people might be interested in these materials too.  Now I’m afraid that this blog has turned into something it was never meant to, and I have a lot of internal conflict about it…

This blog is honestly more of an educational tool — I post a lot of materials that challenge traditional feminism (because I hate traditional feminism) and articles and quotes that can be used in research papers/projects and personal knowledge.  However, that’s all this blog is — to really learn about the sex industry, people need to attend events run by sex workers and read their books, articles, and blogs.

I’m not really sure what else to say here, except to say this blog started as something for myself and for my own knowledge.  I’ve somehow gained a lot of interest in the 14-15 months this blog has been around.

I’m sorry if I glamorize the profession.  That is truly not my intention.

Anonymous asked: I know you are only trying to help, and i'm sorry if this comes off as rude, but as a sex worker I just find this pretty humiliating. We're not just some damn university essay topic, and i'm really embarrassed that you think of us as people who need someone to stand up for us, especially some one who's never done sex work. Until you've had to resort to that, you'll never really know what it's like. It IS degrading and it IS humiliating, no matter how you spin it on some blog. I'm sorry.

No, I don’t know what it is like.  I’m sorry you were offended by what I wrote.  I can’t speak about what it’s like to be a sex worker, and I don’t try to.  I wrote what I did to discuss what I think about academia as a person wants to pursue a career in it.  I didn’t mean to imply that sex workers are just there to be studied because that is not how I think at all.  I was trying to convey my frustrations with academia in general with a focus on how academics tend to treat sex workers who participate in their studies. While I was doing my own thesis during my undergrad, I came across numerous articles and blogs written by sex workers discussing their frustrations with academics — after they participate in X study, they never hear from the researcher again.  I knew that I didn’t to be that sort of academic.

I’m sorry if I caused you to feel embarrassed; I promise it was not my intention.  What I wrote was a result of my own personal feelings regarding academia and the criticisms sex workers have made about academics.  Because I have been taking these criticisms to heart, I have been contemplating ways to create meaningful and ethical research.  Improvements needs to be made in academia.

And as for your comment about standing up for sex workers —

Yes, I do try to do that.  As far as I know, most of the people I spend my time with (friends, family, people in academia…) are not sex workers.  Many of them have told me they never thought much about sex workers’ rights as a human rights issue until I brought it to their attention.  This was not something they were going to think about on their own.  I call people out when they make degrading comments about sex workers or make whorephobic remarks.  I also feel that it takes pressure off of sex workers to have to defend their profession every time a whorephobic comment is made.  I feel that is the least I can do as an ally.  

I don’t do this to embarrass, humiliate, or patronize anyone.  I just think I’d be a shitty ally if I didn’t defend sex workers in both my personal and professional life.

Dear Academics,

You need to stop abusing sex workers for knowledge, money, and fame.  If sex workers are being so generous as to offer you their time, energy, and personal insight into a taboo subject, you better find a way to give back.  Historically, academics have used sex workers for their own professional benefits, while sex workers would receive nothing in return.  That type of behavior is unethical and immoral.  When conducting research, there should be some perceived benefit or compensation on behalf of the sex workers who participate in your study.  Upon completion of the research study, academics should also provide a copy of the research they conducted to their participants.

Giving back isn’t difficult.  Volunteer with sex worker organizations.  Provide compensation if it is within in your budget.  Ask sex workers what they need from you, and what they would like to see as a result of your study.  Many academics want to conduct the same studies over and over without any thought of what might actually be useful to sex workers.  They fail to realize that without sex workers and the sex industry, they would be out of a job.

This is not to say that all academics are bad.  While many academics do abuse sex workers for knowledge, money, and fame, there are many of us that would like to create a mutually beneficial relationship between ourselves and the sex workers who kindly participate in our research studies.

I am an academic because I love learning, writing, and conducting research, but I am well aware that being an academic is a privilege.  What use are you if you don’t do something good with your privilege?

Being accepted into a Jesuit university to study the sex industry astounds me.

That just happened to me ~

This is my first vlog.  I am sharing my tips on how to start the graduate school application process with the idea of studying the sex industry in mind.  I stumble over my words a little bit, I veer off topic a few times, and I’m lying on my bed, so sorry if it looks a little awkward.  I didn’t feel like typing this up, so hopefully it’s not terrible to watch me talk about this instead.  I hope you find this post useful!

Edit:

I was rewatching this video and realized I kept talking about wanting to “help” sex workers, but I never defined what I meant by that.  By saying this, I mean: educating others about issues within the sex industry, making sure you know your role as an ally and not overstep any boundaries, volunteer at sex work organizations that need help from allies, respect sex worker only spaces, not pretending to be a sex worker when you are not one (so many people pretend to be for fame on the Internet, and that’s disrespectful, rude, and stupid), and discourage oppressive thoughts and behaviors, and so on.

audaciaray:

I haven’t blogged step-by-step about all the things that have changed in my brain over the last couple of years with regards to the work and activism I’ve been involved with for the last decade. But things have shifted a lot for me, and hopefully also in how I do my work (forget about intentions, its all about actions). Lists are hip on the internets these days, right? So here’s some things:

  • Feminism: Once upon a time, “feminist” was my main self-identifier, the word I held onto above all else. Now I feel sort of embarrassed to admit that. Yeah, and don’t tell me that feminism can be a good thing! I know that parts of it can. But when people whom your ideology fucks over -in the case of feminism, especially people of color and transgender women- tell you that your ideology is fucking them over, you should shut up and listen. And excuses about intentions are still excuses. Feminists largely remain cissupremacist, racist, classist, and too obsessed with my next point…
  • The Idea of Choice: the concept of “choice,” as in being free to choose something or other, is a fallacy that rests on middle class ideals. The choices of most people are not free, they are constrained by something, shaped by the circumstances of one’s life. (But this is slippery thing: to say that there’s no such thing as choice is close to saying that when people do things that others may regard as a bad idea, they were duped into doing them, and perhaps aren’t responsible.)
  • Proving That I Like the Sex Industry and It Hasn’t Done Me Any Harm: I used to try really hard to prove that I was a healthy, well-adjusted person and sexual being both before and after working in the sex industry. Neither is really true, and I still don’t entirely understand the lines of causation and correlation. But it used to be really important to me to prove my wellness, which I saw as defending myself and maybe even defending the sex industry. The two narrative options available for people to tell stories about their experiences in the sex industry are: “I was a happy hooker!” vs “The sex industry ruined me.” So I opted for the first, even though it didn’t fit. But it sure sounded better. The reality is much more complex. I think that space for these realities is starting to be created, and I hope I am part of creating those spaces, and making it possible for people of many experiences to talk about their stuff.
  • Sex Positivity: So, I like sex. I like it more now than I have in years and years. And although a lot of sex positive culture has queer rhetoric all over it, its become clear to me that so much of sex positivity centers around unchecked, gleeful privilege. I’m only interested in a sex positivity that has a racial and economic justice frame, and that’s most definitely not what I’m seeing.

There’s definitely a lot of intersection among the shifting, mostly that I’ve gained a different kind of race, class, and gender analysis and have started to take a harder look at things that were once precious to me. Which is, you know, hard. But proceeding and doing things as I’ve built them because that’s how I’ve built them is shitty, if the foundations are corroded with racism, classism, and cissexism - as I’ve found they are.

Anonymous asked: Hi. Me: Feminist for 10 yrs, sex-worker for 15 yrs. I 've never taken an anti-porn/anti-sex/anti-whatever-consenting-ppl-do-with-their-bodies stance. Perhaps b/c I found feminism via sex-work my exp. is unique, but I've seen anti-SW feminism at most 2 or 3 times in 10 yrs. Yet anti-feminist SWs hatred of feminists abounds. My ?s are: where do you find rabidly anti-SW fems, & how do you view/account for ppl like me: able to be both feminist & a sex-worker? (abbvs to save space, not b/c I'm 12.)

So, I actually typed a response to this last night, but my Internet went weird on me and deleted what I wrote…  I was too tired to type it up again, so here is my response.

Most of my encounters with anti-SW feminists have happened in feminist spaces and “feminist” texts, blogs, various forms of online media, and safe spaces.  I would hear derogatory comments about sex work(ers) from people who, I thought, should have known better.  I have also heard stories from sex workers about anti-SW feminists.

Personally, I don’t think there’s anything weird/wrong/whatever about being both a sex worker and a feminist.  If that is the label and movement you identify with, that is your choice, and anti-SW feminists can’t take that away from you.  There are plenty of other feminists who are helping in the fight for sex workers’ rights, and they will be the ones who will include you in their movement (although, even pro-SW feminists may not really be inclusive of sex workers, but that’s another issue).  Plus, there are other sex workers who identify with feminism.

Because there are so many problems with the feminist movement, both historically and present-day, I don’t identify as a feminist.  That is my own issue, and I am not going to have a problem with someone else identifying as feminist as long as they don’t force the label on me.

Are there any feminist sex workers reading this blog that would like to share their opinions?

Great article.  It’s a must read.

"Feminist anti-prostitution rhetoric contradicts the principles of consciousness-raising, which demand space for women to describe and define their own experiences. It obscures the far less sensational realities of gendered and transmisogynist oppression that constitute many women’s entire lives. And it allows feminists to talk about prostitution and the end of patriarchy without considering how their words and beliefs affect sex workers’ realities. Some feminists want to stop men from seeing all women as whores. Well, sex worker advocates want everyone to stop seeing whores as something other than women, other than human. These goals are not the same, and radical feminists are not helping prostitutes as long as they are casting us off as something other than fully human."

This is an amazing article by the way.

"When someone tells me she has feminist concerns with sex work, knowing that sex work is my only solution to the problem of poverty, I have a lot of trouble taking her feminism seriously because she is not taking the reality of my life seriously. Acknowledging that “there has to be a better way” isn’t good enough. I need to not live in poverty. Not after the revolution. Right now. Knowing how I feel about some feminists’ disregard for my experiences of intersecting oppression, if someone offers me a version of feminism that doesn’t confront its own colonizing or transphobic practices, I’m not going to take that very seriously either."

Brittany St. Jordan, a 28-year-old leggy redhead in a plunging gold number, was all dressed up with somewhere to go: the Adult Video News Awards, the so-called “Oscars for the porn industry.” But she ended up standing in line for three hours waiting to walk the red carpet, as other female performers were sent ahead. When she finally got her turn, event organizers directed her away from interviews with the press.

St. Jordan had an idea of why: Unlike the ladies who were sent right in, she’s a transsexual woman.

After the night was over, having lost in the Best Transsexual Performer category, St. Jordan took to the Web to protest her treatment. Her story inspired Kelly Pierce, a female trans performer who didn’t attend the ceremony, to write a lengthy blog post titled “AVN’s Inequality & Segregation Needs to Stop!” Soon, industry blogs and message boards picked up on the controversy.

It was an explosion of long-building resentment over their treatment within the industry. Beyond the red carpet delay this year, which AVN says was not limited to transsexual performers, the company has never allowed the Transsexual Performer of the Year award to be presented on stage. Instead, it has been announced on a JumboTron as the audience starts to filter out of the auditorium. As one star told me, “We’re the black sheep.”

That is despite the genre’s tremendous popularity: “T-girl sites are the fourth most popular category of adult Web site,” according to “A Billion Wicked Thoughts,” a book that crunches the numbers behind Internet porn. (Although female-to-male transsexual stars are on the rise in queer porn, what we’re talking about here are trans women — more specifically, people assigned as male at birth who have transitioned to being female but still have a penis.) There are more frequent Web searches for this genre — often through terms like “shemale” and “chicks with dicks” — than for basic X-rated categories like “butts” or “blowjobs.” Authors Sai Gaddam and Ogi Ogas found that the genre’s average viewer is a straight-identified male (and, based on their analysis, passing curiosity doesn’t explain its popularity).

After St. Jordan’s outcry gathered virtual steam, AVN called a meeting last week with a handful of concerned trans women. On Tuesday, the company published a press release announcing that the transsexual winner would be announced on stage in the future. AVN also promised to allow more trans performers to walk the red carpet and talk to the press, and to present awards during the ceremony.

St. Jordan, who says she put her career on the line by speaking out, is thrilled. “Whether or not I ever get nominated again or get invited to anything with AVN again, the fact that the Transsexual Performer of the Year will be on stage and seen by everybody? That’s huge.” Tomcat, director of Kink.com’s TS Seduction site, agrees: “Not sharing the stage with Ts performers has allowed the majority of non-trans performers to dismiss them as outsiders and perpetuated discrimination against a group who should be equally praised for the work they do and the revenue they generate for the industry.”

While AVN’s decision marks serious progress, St. Jordan says that recent commentary on industry message boards reveals just how far there is to go. “Some of the hate and ignorance that came spewing from people was unbelievable, and this was people in, or associated with, the industry. You saw where a lot of people stood.”

Not that it wasn’t already apparent. There’s a huge stigma against mainstream straight stars working with transsexual female performers — they’re stereotyped as gay and therefore at higher risk for transmitting HIV. Tomcat, a trans man, told me in an email, “I still encounter many non-trans performers who will not work with [female] Ts performers because they consider [them] to be more of a STI risk to do a scene with — this is bullshit. In a industry where everyone is tested and everyone makes choices, the same risks are present regardless of gender identity.”

It perhaps goes without saying that the marketing of transsexual porn is often problematic. “People still search for Ts porn using ‘shemale,’” Tomcat says. “To me, this is like searching online for a cab company by typing in ‘stagecoach.’ It’s an antiquated term that is ignorant, incorrect and no longer OK to use.”

Some performers, like Wendy Williams, aren’t so concerned about the lingo. “I don’t live in a utopia, it’s what it is,” she says with her Southern lilt (she’s from Eastern Kentucky). “I’m not trying to be a transsexual activist.” Plus, “It’s a porn term that describes a genre. That way, some country, straight-ass guy in the corner is going to understand,” says Williams. “You say ‘transsexual’ and they’re confused, you say ‘shemale’ and they know what that is.”

A major struggle for the transsexual female niche is to get recognition within the straight side of the business as opposed to the gay side. “This is one of my biggest pet peeves, when I go into a store to do research to see if they’re carrying my DVDs or product lines and you have the transsexual stuff mixed in with the gay stuff,” says Williams. “Putting it next to ‘Harry Men Volume 1,’ it’s just not a good idea,” she says, since the vast majority of their fans identify as hetero. “My gay friends squeal at the idea of having sex with anything but a masculine male — the breasts and all that is just a huge turnoff.”

For most fans of transsexual porn, the genre is just one of many categories that they’re interested in. “A Billion Wicked Thoughts” argues that T-girl porn has such a significant straight male following because it combines the key sexual cue of female anatomy with that other fixture of heterosexual porn: a big, hard cock. Madison Montag, a nominee for Transsexual Performer of the Year, says, “They get tired of just the same old thing. Transsexuals are more feminine, they’re like hyper-feminine. To me, it’s kind of get the best of both worlds.”

The mis-categorization of Ts female porn has been painfully evident at the AVN awards in the past, Williams says: Buck Angel, the first recognized FTM trans performer, won the Best Transsexual Performer award in 2007. “It was a huge scandal in our community,” she says. “How do you judge his porn against our porn? His fan base is totally different. That’s just one example of how ignorant the porn community is.” (In an aside, she mentions the scene she filmed with him in 2005: “Actually, Buck was the very first, quote, vagina I had ever been in.”)

Many female transsexuals feel like they’re rejected from both the straight and gay world. “Even if you go into the [gay] clubs, transsexuals and drag queens are primarily there for entertainment,” says Williams. “It’s not really inclusive. We’re kind of in limbo, we’re in between both worlds.” In the straight world, men are often timid about revealing their interest in the genre. Most sales happen online, says Williams, who has a line of signature toys, including a $240 cyberskin mold of her ass. She says, “We’re the taboo, and where does taboo usually happen? Behind closed doors.”

Then again, Pierce, a blond with pixy features, says that when she signed autographs in a booth at the AVN Expo in 2008, she was allowed in the “female section” and had a line longer than some non-trans girls. “They were kind of upset with me,” she laughs.

In terms of fans’ willingness to announce their interest in public, it all has to do with a performer’s “passability,” according to Pierce: “Some men feel like they’re more straight if they’re attracted to more feminine looking transsexuals who bottom” — because topping is seen as masculine. Passability is also a factor in how girls are treated within the industry, she says: “If you look like a woman, they’re more accepting of you. And if you don’t look like a woman, they’re less accepting.”

Montag, a 19-year-old, doe-eyed brunette who calls me “sweetie,” says she got stellar treatment at this year’s AVN awards — she rubbed elbows with Ron Jeremy on the red carpet and scored a seat in the second row — and attributes it in part to her passability. “I’m very young. I’m only 5’1″ and 81 pounds. I’m very petite.” She adds, “I started hormone therapy earlier than other girls.”

St. Jordan agrees: “When it comes down to it,” she says matter-of-factly, “this is business, and it’s a beauty contest every day.

Williams, who is 6-feet-tall with red, va-va-voom hair, says the pressure to pass as a porn star is even greater than in everyday life. Normally, she says, “I pull my hair up into ponytail and throw on some lip gloss and people just think I’m a tall girl with big boobs.” On camera, everything is different: “You need to seem extremely feminine, but if you want to seem feminine, then you need to be on hormones — but if you’re on hormones, you can’t stay hard and come, and if you can’t stay hard and come, you’re a bad performer.” On top of that, she says, the same viewers who expect this expensive nipped and tucked aesthetic “want to pirate my videos and not sign up for my website and have it for free.”

The irony is that many female trans performers get into the sex industry to pay for their transitions. Well, that and because it can be difficult to get a job anywhere else: “I interviewed for a job that I should have got,” says Williams about her pre-porn days, “and the guy told me, ‘I just don’t know how the cohesion in the office would be if people knew that you were a transsexual woman.’” Things have improved in the decade since then, but the same issues persist: “I couldn’t get a job, not even at Burger King,” says Montag, who lives in a small town in Texas where “people get beat up just for being punk and emo.”

She may be sexually outgoing on the Internet, but it’s not so in real life. Montag says she gets far more action on-screen and doesn’t pursue men in real life, for fear of them having a bad reaction to the discovery that she’s trans. Instead, she sticks to the Web: “[You get] a better reaction and it’s safer, too,” she explains. “It’s not like they’re gonna beat you and leave you in a cornfield to die.”

Courtney Trouble, a queer porn star and director who has worked with many trans performers, hopes that porn might actually help reduce transphobia in society at large. “Porn, while seemingly a private, frivolous luxury, has the immense power to gently create an awareness for trans issues in the audience,” she says. “If porn can create a change in the minds of people outside the industry, that’s where the real rewards are.”

Tobi Hill-Meyer, director of “Doing It Ourselves: The Trans Women Porn Project,” left the mainstream business “to create an alternative that allowed trans women to be represented the way each performer wanted to see herself represented,” she says. “I had to leave the mainstream industry in order to accomplish that, but I’ve seen a similar thing happening within it. More and more performers are speaking out about changes they’d like to see and setting up their own websites or productions.” Trouble believes that independently produced porn will do away with terms like “shemale,” “tranny” and “chick with a dick.”

Others predict transsexual porn will explode within mainstream straight porn. That’s in part because “so many transsexual stars are transitioning younger and getting more beautiful,” says Pierce. But she adds, “Sexuality in general is becoming more open-minded and the new generation is really pushing the limits on sexuality, and I think it’s going to push the transsexual market.”

St. Jordan agrees: “I think there’s gonna be some great crossover stuff real soon, within the next year or so,” she says. That means transsexuals performing not only with non-trans girls but also with straight male performers. This is partly because of growing acceptance and interest on the part of porn viewers, and partly because the up and coming generation of young performers have increasingly liberal attitudes. She says, “As new minds and ideas are coming into the industry, there are more people willing and open to work with us.”
