Is sex work just another job?

I found a really great podcast from the CBC concerning sex work.

The CBC interviews “Berlin”, a 28 year old sex worker and takes calls from listeners regarding the question “is being a sex worker just another job?” Many calls came from those who were involved with sex work in some way.

This is one of my favourite parts:

Interviewer: “How do you feel safe? These are strangers… How do you make sure that you’re not going to end up in a really creepy or dangerous situation?”

Berlin: “Well, I don’t know. What do people going out on first dates do? I often have more information about my clients than people who are going out on dates or bringing people home from the bar…”

Listen to the whole thing. It’s really interesting!
