On Being an Ally to Sex Workers

On Being an Ally to Sex Workers

September 07, 2018

Here at Nikki Darling, we support full decriminalisation of sex work. We do our best to signal boost sex workers' own words, because nobody knows what sex workers need better than sex workers. With that in mind, we encourage those of you who want to know how to be a better ally to sex workers in Australia (or anywhere!) to read this article from Gala Vanting over at Queen Victoria Women's Centre. It is the first of a two-part series.

"For many sex workers, sex work is just work; it’s not that complicated. I understand that it can be pretty tricky for those who are ‘not against’ us to intellectually, politically, and personally integrate all of the questions that sex work brings up in feminist dialogues. As a feminist and a sex worker, I’m here to help."

We think Gala really has a way with words. Her ability to cut through the bullshit and deliver you truth is sorely needed. If you agree, perhaps you'd like to check out Gala's Patreon where you can support her to continue her writing, education and activism.

“Your girlfriend is fully satisfied with your sex life but likes to enjoy a second orgasm after fucking you because she is so deeply aroused by the events that just occurred and doesn’t want to take up more of your precious time, so don’t give it another thought and just be pleased with how studly you are, you big studly stud muffin.”

When we tried to promote a direct link to the ticketing page for Become a Sexual Communication Superhero! with Kate McCombs in the hope of reaching a wider audience of people - people who may be sorely wanting to learn skills like the ones Kate will teach in this workshop - they told us no, because their advertising guidelines prohibit advertising of "sexual acts, videos and publications, strip clubs and adult shows."
