empowerment: the other side of sex work 

Sex work is challenging - from institutional discrimination to harmful portrayals in the media, there are many fronts where we seek progress. However, focusing on the (very real) struggles only illuminates half the story. It is time to recognize the voices of professionals who discovered how meaningful sex work can be not only for clients, but also for themselves. Offering emotional, physical and sexual support can be intensely rewarding, and the depth of human experience means there is always more to learn and explore. We heard first-hand from a brilliant speaker empowered by doing a job she loves, and discussed how we can create supportive community of allies to normalize and celebrate this timeless and important profession. Featuring speaker Rosie Heart, Sex Worker + Sex Educator, PROUD.
