Prostitution, Porn & Strippers! Sex & Business in the World Today
Most companies that deal with sexuality today; pornography, strip clubs, escorts, and prostitution. All tend to have negative reputations and strong associations with exploitation and criminality.
There are very few companies in the world today that deal with sex in a way that is beneficial to people and the planet. The idea of making money through sexuality is automatically seen as 'dirty' or 'sleazy'.
There are men who work in the sex industry. However, they are usually on the 'ownership' or 'business' side of the business. The overwhelming majority of sex workers are female or transgender and they suffer from all kinds of discrimination or persecution. They are penalized by society and can be abused, trafficked, raped and commodified in ways that make the phrase 'sex industry' more ominous than positive.
The sordid aspect to modern 'sex work' is hard to shake. 'Sex work' is conflated with 'sex slavery' and 'sex trafficking'. One prominent reason for this is that most forms of sex work is illegal in much of the developed and developing world.
The new Sesta/Fosta laws signed by President Trump has now criminalized many forms of sex work as well as the internet sites that support their services.
Without oversight and government regulation, sex workers are forced underground which is where the most disturbing crimes of sexuality take place.
Female Economic Empowerment through Ethical Sex Work!
Many sex-positive women are happy in their chosen profession as a Sex Worker. Though it is hard for traditional feminists and many others to believe, not every sex worker is 'only doing it for the money' or is 'doing it against her will'. Many have made a conscious adult decision and enjoy the perks and benefits that come from being in the 'flesh trade'.
If there ever was such a thing as 'gender wars', sex workers can be considered front-line soldiers. They are the ones who 'work' with men at the most unreasonable state in their lives . . . when they are horny!
However, Sex Workers are the ideal candidates to be Ethical Erotic Entrepreneurs because they are already 'in the sex business'!
Doing ethical sex work is much more enduring than traditional sex work. It is something you can do well into old age because as long as what you are doing is helping society or the planet in some way and it is making an income then it is sustainable.
Sex Workers in the World Today
We encourage those who already work in the 'Sex Industry' to find ways to make their work ethical and rewarding in more ways than monetary!
Ethical entrepreneurship and sexual equalism can go hand in hand to create sensual products or services that improve the planet we live in. It allows you to make a living from creating the change that you want to see in the world.
One problem with working with sexuality is that it is one of the most legally regulated aspects of human behavior. In countries from Sweden to Saudi Arabia, many forms of paid sexuality between consenting adults are illegal.
For example, sexual surrogacy is a form of sexual healing. A Sexual Surrogate would be a great example of an Ethical Erotic Entrepreneur. However, despite the personal and social health benefits it brings to clients, in most of the world, sexual surrogacy is classified as prostitution and is therefore illegal.
While the law does forbid many ideas that work with sexuality it is not that way all over the world. For example in Amsterdam prostitution is legal. So a Sexual Surrogate could practice their business there! Portland, OR is the Polyamory capital of the world so that would be a great city to do any sort of business that deals with open relationships.
As well, there are many imaginative and fun ways to work with sexuality. After all, sex is about pleasure!
