Raped for a living?

In response to the thread about "consenting adults" - ie the law about prostitution, thought I'd share this.

How do you feel about the authors provocative statement that prostitution amounts to "being raped for a living?"

www.truthdig.com/report/item/prostitution_being_raped_for_a_living_20151025

As Dani pointed out there seem to be a lot of people speaking on behalf of escorts who have no right to.

The article is fairly soundly refuted in the comments by a WG who was working the same streets at the same time the author claimed to be - the suggestion she makes is the authors version of events is entirely fabricated.

As (I assume) you are all independent and certainly not street walking how do you see it?

Prostitution is being raped for a living only if marraige is being raped for a lifestyle

I take offence to anyone suggesting that it's rape. I fully consent. Real rape involves a woman not giving consent, or not feeling able to say no and equating what I do to rape, is an insult to those women who are raped.
And men....seems to be happening more and more these days:(

I know this is a very sensitive subject but I've never felt 'raped' doing this job; it is absolutely NOT rape and thus shouldn't even be portrayed in the same light.

However, I have had two clients in the past who have tried to go BB with me; both times I noticed straight away and stopped. First time I broke down and cried and second time (a different client) I wanted to beat the shit out of him. This, to me, is a line which has been crossed. I didn't consent to BB, nor would I ever. Thankfully, I was checked out and all was fine.

I hope I've argued my point well and without causing offence.

A bb attempt to me is like a client asking "can we end the booking immediatly, you keep the money and kick me out as fast as possible" and if and when the next one tries it I shall be sure to comply with that plead.

They wouldnt like it if I tried to secretly bum them with my strap on without them noticing so why they think its okay to try to slip a cock into or onto our fannies bb is really beyond me

The comment made was used to attract attention

Dani is spot on Let the WG comment as they have the right to.

Again another jumping on the band wagon stating things as fact and having been shown to have been lying about doing this job. The fact is men pay us for because we consent to have sex. If we don't consent then we are in the wrong job. We choose to consent and get paid and that's what others cannot understand. Why we would do it for money when they think it's such an awful act. That's the truth of it. They don't enjoy sex so don't believe anyone else can so they use words like abuse, victims, rape as it makes their own moral stance feel justifiable.
Rape is a god awful crime and to liken us to rape victims is to undermine those same victims. What they are saying is we don't complain it's rape as we get paid but I am pretty sure a rape victim will complain even if the rapist left them £100 when he had finished.

I certainly do feel sorry for the woman in question, regardless of the veracity of her experiences.

The problem seems to be that the volume of noise and general hysteria (sorry, used the word) surrounding this issue stifles any chance of rational debate and leaves no room for an evidence based approach. The secretive nature of our hobby/profession means that few, if any, dissenters are heard, and they are so few in number that they're easily dismissed. And don't get me started about our political class

Sounds like a right cunt. The antis and especially the femi-Nazi element of people like Harriet Harridan hold the view as it suits their agenda that ALL WGs are victims whether they think they are or not and ALL punters are abusers. Total bollocks of course but as the antis have the built in advantage of being able to go on TV and other media openly whereas many WGs and punters wont do that as the antis know its not a balanced view that the public see in my main. Plus at least some of the public are sheep who don't question the antis views as they have no experience of or interest in prostitution.

Fortunately I think a lot of the public don't give a shit either way - live and let live, what two consenting adults get up to is between them etc etc. If the public cared then the laws would probably be changed. The femi-Nazis come across as completely frothing at the mouth loonies and articles like this I think do more to hurt their case then help it. Anyone with half a brain can see the language used is deliberately provocative. And I think most people recognise that prostitution is just one of those things - some will engage in it no matter what so who cares as long as they're not hurting anyone?

I think many peoples views are slowly changing and becoming more liberal especially younger people which bodes well for the future but there are still many who aren't open minded for whatever reason and believe the guff they are fed and don't question it.
