Making Sex Work by Mary Lucille Sullivan
Book DescriptionCan a prostitute be raped? Are pregnancy and STIs an Occupational Health and Safety issue? What sort of society buys and sells women and children for sex? Does legalisation solve the dangers of sex work? Sex worker advocates have argued for many years that legalising prostitution is the way to make the industry safer both for workers and clients. In 1984, the State of Victoria did just that, and Western Australia is currently considering following suit. In this book, Mary Lucille Sullivan looks at the evidence of Victorias experience, and asks whether the concept of sex work as 'a job like any other' matches the reality. Discussing the practicalities of brothels as regular businesses, the author unearths astounding facts about both the legal and illegal sectors. Covering issues such as violence, organised crime, womens health, and mainstream businesses involvement in the sex trade, "Making Sex Work" is a compelling read. This book gives an insight into the sex industry, and into a society where women and children have become just another consumer item.If you've ever thought of prostitution as simply a choice some women make, read this book and then ask yourself: Could you do this job? How would you feel if your friend, sister, or daughter chose this career?
