By changing the focus off from the men onto the woman who is providing the commodity, how might sex work look like when the sex workers are empowered?
The discourse around sex work is currently around the victimization and stigma of women in this industry and the men who are driving the demand. The artifacts and evidences are all aimed at illuminating a sex worker’s choice and her institutional right to physical safety, safety from disease, economic stability and access to social mobility through sex work. Does it take legal regulation, social change, and design to achieve that? If the sex worker had control of exchange of sex services, would the service still be as appealing? Would a transparent sex economy encourage more dangerous and illegal sex markets?
