I have friends and lovers who are sex workers by their own choice. The women I know love what they do and across the board they are smart, savvy, intuitive women who like being their own boss and creating a life that works for them.

No-one should be forced to do this non-consenually but that’s a duh! Taking the choice away from the women (and men) who do want to do it is condescending, paternalistic and wrong.
