Okay, yes, pimps are bad. This we can agree on, Tat.

The answer to your question, Saph? Regulation. Laws. Removing the stigma against sex workers of all stripes so they don't feel threaTENED BY THE POLICE WHO ARE OSTENSIBLY THERE TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC WHICH INCLUDES SEX WORKERS

Let me guess. You live in the United States of America, and the first president you remember was either Reagan, or a president after his administration.

I mean, no one, Saph, we passed laws that mean you can't protect yourself anymore. For your own good, obviously.

Why is Saph being harassed by James O'Keefe?

Almost. I live in Russia, and the first president I remember was Yeltsin. You can guess how it went from there. Razz

As for the "government" comment, it was kind of sarcastic, so feel free not to take it too seriously... but yeah... I meant "since the beginning of history as we know it".

We have regulations here in Austria for that. But still there are Pimps and illegal Prostetuts, simply because they can make more Money by that Way. At the End of last Year, the Police arrested some African Guys, who forced Woman with Vodoo to do the Job. Classic Story beside that. "You will get a good Job in Europe", when they are here, the Papers get taken away and you have to deliver nearly every Cent that you earn to them.
It is just a little Percent who does this, but it looks like you can never get rid of this Problem totaly, because there is allways somebody who wants Money.

Wow. A woman, in a country with legal, regulated prostitution, getting protected from trafficking by the authorities?

Be careful. If you say this sort of stuff aloud TinT may cover her ears so hard that it might start hurting.

Caimsen, that reminds me about a really excellent piece of journalism that I read in The New Yorker last year:

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/04/10/the-desperate-journey-of-a-trafficked-girl

There's a lot to unpack in there. Might be an interesting starting point to contrast that narrative with something like Viktor Belmont's story:

http://www.wussymag.com/all/2016/2/3/qa-with-viktor-belmont

And then talk about how singular stories about singular people may be a way we can begin to understand what a particular class of experiences is like, but cannot tell us what everyone's experience is like, nor can such stories replace data on trends and central tendencies.

Yes. Thats Reality here in Austria. They have to get every 2 Weeks to a Woman Doctor (dont know if there is a word for a Doctor just for Woman) to check their if they are healthy.

Well, sounds like there would be a few other things out there what would shock her World in that Case. Very Happy

@werdnus: i will read it later. Want to know what they say.
