    I don't know if I'd use the word shameful but I do think it's wrong.

    I also think guys who pay for sex are disgusting.

    If I had a daughter I'd spend most of her early life teaching her to respect her body. For me (and some will probably disagree), being paid for sex is the exact opposite of respecting your body.

    But if there are people I judge, it is the customers. I don't care if they are after vanilla stuff or other thing. There is a million way to release sexual tension without having to use another person and feed a dirty industry. Dirty cause it lives off misery and fill the pockets of the mafia and other drugs network.

    That is the real/main face of prostitution. Can anyone honestly tell me that they would be happy and encourage for their daughter to work in a brothel??

    So many illegal brothels in Australia too, THAT is shameful of our country. I can't wait for the act of using the services of a prostitutes to be illegal like it is in Sweden.
    I really don't know why im posting in this thread. It's probably going to make me as angry as the last one.

    However, s3x work is illegal in some states of Australia. And that's where I've found the majority of the drugged up s3x workers, the ones who are owned by the criminal elements of society. The ones who have no choice once they're in. You are one til you're too old, too ugly, too diseased to do it anymore.

    You know what makes the s3x industry dirty? You and people like you who want to force it underground so there are no regulations to it and so it does open up the door for the criminal element to take an even bigger foothold than it does.

    And yes, if my daughter wanted to work in a brothel I'd be happy because she'd be doing something she loves and enjoys. And I wouldn't be a lying parent who tells their kids they'll support and encourage them to be who and what they want to be. And if that happens to be a s3x worker who simply works in brothels, then fine. If that happens to be her being a high end escort who is paid a lot for her time, company, intelligence and whatever else, then fine.
    And if you or anyone dared say a word against her for it, then the most shameful part of the whole thing would probably be my reaction to you.

    How dare you people sit up on your high horses, judge so harshly, comment so disgustingly? Who do you think you are to believe you have the right to treat or speak of anyone with such disregard, disdain and disrespect? You might not agree with the profession. That's fine. I don't agree with the profession of owning caged animal farms. But you think you're so much more intelligent, moral, clean than the people who choose to get into the s3x industry? Sorry ladies, but your sh1t stinks just as bad as everybody elses does.

    I wouldn't imagine that it would be a profession that too many people would go into if they didn't have to for financial reasons. I don't personally know anymore in the industry, but I would feel upset if someone I knew had to do that type of work to make ends meet. Not in a judgmental way, just that I would worry about safety, health, self image etc for that person.

    I have thought before, how do sex workers bring themselves to have sex with men that are really unattractive/obese/smelly/old etc??? Probably a bit off topic...but really to have sex with a stranger I think they deserve the money they earn! I don't think it's an occupation to be overly proud of and I wouldn't like the thought of my family or friends doing it as I would worry - but hey, if thats the persons choice and they are ok with it, it's not my business to judge.

    Oh come on. Hecs pays the long term uni costs. Austudy (or whetever its called now) pays the living costs. Unless you are in a really special circumstance (a kiwi living in oz) then social security is enough to survive ...unless you have really high standards.

There are derogatory words we don't use for gay people, disabled people, people of certain ethnic backgrounds...sex workers should have the same right to be referred to in a politically correct manner. But like all social changes, they take time to be adopted by society at large.
    Prostitute is a technically correct dictionary term (with malice not in its origins) that has been around since day dot. It seems like the term sex worker has been brought in to escape the negative connotations that have over time been associated with prostitution. And I don't think that's possible as the problems with the industry (include a lack of respect for workers) exist no matter what the workers are called. I looked up the definition of sex worker in the online dictionary and it came up with: "the performance of sex acts for money; prostitution." I would never disrespect an industry worker in person but seriously if they don't want to be known as a prostitute ... if they want to be respected...then they shouldn't sell their body for money.

    I have to disagree, as uni costs are crazy, 8 subjects a year with text books that are over $100 ea ( and before you say hire or 2nd hand when I went they had a habit of bringing out new editions) . I was only paying $60 a week rent ( which is cheap ) and had low food cost, utility cost but transport was expensive ( even with student discount). Plus then there was all the other must have uni expenses like compulsory union fees, weekly printing cost and during assignment time extra costs like binding.
    My assistance was gone pretty quickly.
    FYI when I was at uni dole bludgers were getting more than students

    I don't think that's the case. I think customers are judged harshly as well. It's just not the topic of the thread so people don't go on about it.

    And what did you do to make ends meet? I got a job in a supermarket.

    ?
    Prostitutes disrespect themselves and their bodies by having sex for money. I know feminism is about choice but I think women choosing to be prostitutes makes it harder for the women who are trying to gain respect via other means. It disempowers women as a whole.... reinforces the idea that they are subservient to men. It makes it just that like bit more acceptable to ogle a woman walking past in the street.

    People may claim prostitutes have the power and customers are respectful. I don't buy that occurs in the majority of cases. A male may speak nice to a prostitute when he is with her (... He doesn't want to get thrown out!) but when he goes to the pub with his mates he's telling them how he ****** your **** and they are giving him high-5's in return. (I overhead many a conversation in my younger days. And no I don't approve I was disgusted by the men as well).

    So to answer the question ... It's hard to respect someone who puts their self in a position where they are disrespected by others.

    Is it shameful? Depends on the individual and the circumstances.

    It's a profession that attracts an underclass and underworld and I certainly feel for people who are underaged, drug-addicted or otherwise forced into prostitution and consider that shameful, or just a shame depending on how they got to that position. There are some operators and some "johns" who pray on vulnerable people. That is shameful.

    I suspect Australia is a better place in the world to be a prostitute, with legal brothels and a higher standard of living. If someone genuinely likes what they do and do it safely I feel there's no shame in it. Consensual sex isn't shameful, in my opinion.

    If my friend was a prostitute, I would worry about their safety because of the vulnerability it places him or her in during sessions with a client. That's the primary reason I wouldn't ever do it myself. It's not a risk I'd want to take and I would project my concern onto anyone I cared about. That's the only real judgment I have on it when it is a consentual activity.
