Sudhir Venkatesh has some answers from Mindy and Dorothy, two sex workers, about their profession. They had some interesting things to say; this bit about legalization surprised me:
DOROTHY: I think legalization is really bad for the women because they will just get exploited. They’ll get paid a lot less and be forced to do a lot more.
I don’t condone prostitution, but I do understand survival.
Women sell their bodies for survival — I don’t care how much money they make. You don’t want to make that a permanent thing.
