Headlines that Perpetuate the Stigma of Sex Work


Stigmatising, derogatory, misleading, the media reporting of sex work is often more about shocking the audience than being accurate and respectful towards sex workers.   

These are all real headlines from the last few years.  

They come from a diverse rage of media outlets.  

This list is by no means comprehensive; it is a snapshot of the how the media perpetuates the stigma against sex workers.

Exploring the Curiosity Around Sex Work: a Vixen Hour Vox Pop


The Vixen Hour is a radio program that is entirely produced and presented by sex workers and broadcast on JOY 94.9.

On our first show we discussed why sex workers were putting together a radio show. Part of this was acknowledging the many unanswered questions people have about sex work.

This vox pop is a compilation of responses that contributors made when asked the question, "If you could sit down and ask a sex worker a question, what would it be?"

A big special thank you to all the volunteers at JOY 94.9 who took part.

This vox pop was discussed as part of the Vixen Hour that was broadcast on the 7th of January, 2013.  You can listen to the whole show here.
