QotD: “If we accept prostitution as ordinary work, then we should be able to speak about what the skills of prostitution are”

If we accept prostitution as ordinary work, then we should be able to speak about what the skills of prostitution are …

The ability to control your reflex to vomit.
The ability to restrain your urge to cry.
The ability to imagine your current reality is not happening.

These are the skill sets of prostitution. These are the skill sets necessary to perform what some people would like to see normalized as ‘sex work’

  1. This book is available for sale on Amazon for three bucks via their kindle cloud reader. You don’t have to have a kindle, I can do it with my old ipad. The cloud reader software is free, you just have to be logged in. I’m not a big fan of Amazon but it’s an interesting option, and I think Rachel’s story should get out there more.
