OMG! Sex Work2.0!

A breathless article describing the online world of escorts. Because, you know, no one has been aware of it before.

I took exception to the description of the ECVIP site as “complete with photographs in which female bodies are on display, while their faces stay out-of-frame or are digitally obscured”. First, many sex workers need to keep their identities safe in this society. (Google “Eliot Spitzer” or “DC Madam” if you want to know why.) Second, how are these photos any different than a Victoria’s Secret site? Other than the face-blurring, where’s the difference? One is to compel men to spend money, the other is to compel both men and women to spend money.

  1. Great post, Amanda!

    Breathless, indeed. The great thing about all of this is that my web stats have doubled since this story broke! While in the short term men may stay far away, I think in the long term it will only benefit us, as more become aware of the possibilities of finding companionship online.

    The lesson for the client? Go indy!😀

  2. Oh, I plan on telling men to leave agencies alone!🙂
