I think this is the first mainstream media television story on sex workers that didn’t feature the mandatory woman leaning into a car.

  1. Or some dark street with long shots of lamp posts.

  2. I guess it would be rather dull to just show the uneventful transgression of arranging an incall meeting with a client. It’s about as titillating as making an appointment with your dentist. Of course the media will focus on more salacious imagery.
    What’s so absurd about the policies is that if prostitution were not illegal, these stories wouldn’t even come up. We’d all just work quietly and discreetly- that’s what we get paid for.
    Most of our neighbors/family/friends have no idea what we’re doing until the police drag us out of our homes in handcuffs.
