Sex Work Isn’t Empowering…


In a recent video by Max, he explores the topic of sex work and its perception as an empowering profession. Over the years, the narrative surrounding sex work has shifted, leading to conflicting opinions and debates. It is crucial to understand the nuances and complexities of sex work, recognizing it as a form of work while also acknowledging the challenges faced by sex workers.

The Empowerment Narrative

For a long time, there was a strong belief among sex positive individuals that sex work is empowering. This narrative emerged as a response to the conflation of sex work with sex trafficking and the objectification or devaluation of sex workers. However, Max admits that he swung too far left in aligning himself with this perspective.

The Pendulum Swings Back

Currently, there is a shift in the perception of sex work, with many people claiming that it is not empowering. Some argue that sex work is the only profession that carries the torch of empowerment. However, this perspective fails to capture the entire truth.

The Middle Ground

Max suggests that the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Just like any other profession, sex work has its own set of challenges and issues. It is important to acknowledge that sex work, like service work, is demanding and often seen as demeaning. This perception is shaped by both those who make it that way and those who consume sexual entertainment.

Empowerment in Different Fields

Max draws a parallel between sex work and other professions, such as women in STEM fields and small business owners. While women in STEM may face empowerment through their work, it is incorrect to assume that all sex workers experience the same level of empowerment. Similarly, small business owners may face financial struggles, but they find empowerment in the ability to set their own hours and make their own decisions.

Exploitation and Legislation

It is important to address the exploitation faced by sex workers, just like any other workers. This exploitation is evident in wage theft and the fact that their work often benefits their bosses more than themselves. While there are sex work-specific issues, such as the legality of certain types of sex work, legislation should focus on protecting sex workers and their clients. Measures like SESTA/FOSTA, the Nordic Model, and police harassment need to be addressed to create a safer environment for everyone involved.

Supporting Sex Workers

If you want to support sex workers in your community, consider getting involved with organizations like SWOP (Sex Workers Outreach Project). SWOP has chapters in various states and offers a range of services, from decriminalization campaigns to street outreach and barrier services. Additionally, contributing to mutual aid initiatives in your community helps create a more inclusive and supportive environment for all forms of work.

A Broader Reach of Protections

Max emphasizes the need for broader protections for workers in all professions. It is crucial to advocate for social mobility, education rights, and increased funding for public schools. This fight for greater social mobility should not be used as an argument against sex work but rather as a way to improve working conditions and empower individuals in all fields.

In conclusion, sex work is a complex and multifaceted form of work with its own set of challenges. Acknowledging the realities faced by sex workers and advocating for their rights and protections is essential in creating a more inclusive and empowering society for all workers.
