Terms like prostitution, forced, human trafficking, illegal in different combinations are being exploited as headlines in today’s media. Even in coverage of negative news one thing still counts: Sex sells!
It is of great annoyance to me that sex workers are continuously portrayed as a group of helpless souls too damaged to have a mind of their own. We are made sideline spectators at a play in which we are the lead characters.
Prostitution, sex work and more terms alike are methodically being induced into the general public in an effort to trigger associative thinking within the unconscious where anything remotely related to sex work is instantly deemed negative and repulsive.
