Why I'm Fed Up Of The Way TV Portrays Sex Workers

8 posts in this topic

Great article here by Audrey Moore in Refinery 29 magazine

A lack of realistic representation of our lives on telly only contributes to this dehumanising attitude, and pushes us further to the margins when it comes to the way society sees us.

There is a new American TV series called "The Girlfriend Experience" which I found interesting.

If media concentrates on a daily basis showing all the doom and gloom in the world, manipulating and twisting everything, I am not surprised they show this 'niche market' in such bad colours instead of portraying the people delivering this service as being quiet and discreet professionals with a naughty side.  And I doubt this will change in the future: it suits them to falsify the good and bad 'limits' in every aspect of our lives.

It's a really tedious stereotype. 

If punting taught me anything, it's that every escort has her own story why she does it and most of the time there was nothing sad about it. If anything, a lot of those I've seen felt liberated being an escort.

You are right, yet the majority of the girls never participate in Forums and some have really sad stories.  I wonder if anyone did a percentage calculation of this?
