this posting assumes there is no difference between working at menial
labor and working as a sex worker. I think, fundamentally, there is a
difference. Obviously there are exceptions to every rule, and I am sure
there are many sex workers out there who feel differently, but on the
whole I think that most people find a fundamental difference between
working at menial lablor positions and working with one's body. There
is something inherently different about sexual relations as a means of
making a living. That fundamental difference leads people to a dialogie
that includes questioning how or why someone got into the prostituition
line of work. Also, a society in which the sexual prowess of a woman is
valued over her other abllities must be taken into account when one
speaks of "choice" and "independence" regarding entering prostitution.
Who knows what women would do if there was a choice. Would there even
be any prostitutes?
