Topic: Sex Work As A Healing Art
Learn to understand how sex work is a caring, female dominated profession and a healing art. In this episode of Sex as Medicine we will discuss the misconceptions and stigma around the trade and how this impacts sex work law and workplace safety. Plus the different ways that governments and lawmakers put ideology over human life with respect to ‘moral’ issues like sex work and drug use; for example, a commonly-quoted statistic that ‘the average age of entry into the sex trade is 14 years old’ was taken from a study about MINORS in the street-based sex trade.
The difference between decriminalization, legalization, full and asymmetrical criminalization. SESTA/FOSTA and censorship and how these laws violate everyone’s right to sexual expression, and put sex worker’s lives and livelihoods at risk.
How sex trafficking is conflated with sex work, and other ways that statistics are intentionally misleading.
The ways that anti-sex-work feminists erase the agency of sex workers, and how they creepily intersect with the ideology of the religious right.
Examples of sex workers as healers and why our work is valuable.
How sex worker’s right intersect with the rights of other marginalized people who are overrepresented in the sex trade, and how you really can’t support the rights of economically marginalized people without supporting sex worker’s rights.
The old matriarchal religion of ancient Babylon, where the high priestesses were also known to provide sexual services, which were seen as sacred, in the temples. The biblical Whore of Babylon refers to the goddess Inanna, who I like to think of as a patron of sex workers.
The ways that we, as a culture, can treat sex workers better, and how that shift in our consciousness can help us learn to treat our environment better as well.
