These subjects have been in the news a lot lately. We need to talk about it.
I'm going to take position here that many of you might not like.
Sex work is a net positive to society and should be decriminalized.
Sex work is real work and it provides a valuable service to men and society.
If sex work were decriminalized, we'd be better off as a whole.
If two adults want to contract for service for pay, then why the hell is the government getting involved?
Men want the service, women sex workers want to provide it.
We have de facto polygyny in the US where one man occupies several women at once, or serially, either way - many men are excluded from SMP.
All the things opponents to sex work think they are trying to help through criminalizing sex work.
And with more and more men single and alone - we should allow them a chance for companionship outside of the SMP.
1) I want feminists to support their own sisters
2) I believe in personal liberty
3) I believe sex is inherently healthy
4) I see a future where many men will have no other options
Hell, as we all know - you pay one way or the other!
Support the decriminalization of sex work. It will make the world a better, safer, happier place. For real.
Those are two separate issues.
Its like decriminalizing smoking weed while still prosecuting major drug dealers.
One group sees sex work as reinforcing the patriarchy.
The other sees women as having agency and able to make their own decisions.
The second group is the one I want to see when their internal battle.
Feminists think that rough sex reinforces rape culture and the patriarchy.
Yet many (most) harbor fantasies of rough sex.
Do women have agency or not?!
You may like the book far better, actually.
Lots of people seem to like it.

Unsurprisingly, the gender feminists at reddit have been bashing me and everyone who supported this thread for being woman haters and traffickers!
They kept saying I advocated for sex work decriminalization because it was the only way I’d get sex :)
- I focused too much on the net benefits to society rather than just talking about women
- I’m a man I can’t talk about feminism
- Screeech. Reeeeeee. Garble. Yell. Aiiyyyyeeeee die cis man.
I also got DM’s thanking me.
Really, the gender feminists are the worst.
I’m an equity feminist a la Paglia and Pinker.
Those gender fems are nutz.
