Outside work romantic relationships of working girls

7 posts in this topic

Some working girls have romantic relationships outside work-a theme much discussed in SAAFE forum threads (see for instance “Relationships while escorting?” http://www.saafe.info/main/index.php?topic=3308.0)   this has now become an interest of academic study-a recent publication backing up much of what is said on the SAAFE forum-see “ The impact of sex work on women’s personal romantic relationships and mental separation of their work and personal lives: A mixed methods study” published in the Open access journal PLoS One (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0141575).

Those academics could have saved themselves the trouble by reading SAAFE but being Australia based maybe they never saw it.

Actually PLoS ONE has quite a few interesting articles on sex work-and being open access they are free to view.

I just read the conclusion and, to borrow from Basil Fawlty, "next contestant, PLoS from Australia. Specialist subject - the bleeding obvious". I hope that the researchers didn't get paid for that crap.

I came to exactly the same conclusions by simply thinking about it for a minute or so and applying some common sense.

Only "some" working girls? ;)

And here's a somewhat superficial tabloid article published yesterday looking at this issue from the sex worker's partner's point of view.

Perhaps an unnecessary adverb?

The Star seems to be trying to go upmarket: instead of "hooker" it now says "sex worker"

One of the captions has a word that was new to me: a "mid adult" man. I suppose that's what the rest of us call "middle-aged", yet it's strangely expressive, though with a different sense. "Mid-adult" - yes, that's just how I feel, never having quite got the hang of the adult world and still struggling to gain competence in it.

I suspect that's how Amy Rigby felt when she entitled her 1998 CD album Middlescence.

You have to pronounce it with three syllables.

Uninspiring and quite surprising in this day and age, they are human beings after all and have the same make-up as the rest of us....

why look for negatives when writing about the positives is more fun...
