Wow, they keep their business and or money making private enough that people don’t know about it… keep it that way.

It's not abusive. Only men working in factories should have to contribute to society

Prostitution will always be in demand.

Most are involved on a "brief, intermittent basis." Despite the current hysteria to try to portray sex work as "trafficking," most sex work is voluntary (as much as any work is voluntary) and is a limited means to an end, not a trap or a life.

What a ‘rose color glasses’ way of looking at prostitution…


Discount_gentleman t1_j0pxmes wrote

Or maybe just a "factual" way of looking at it. I mean, it's right there in the title.

That's because there is absolutely nothing to do in Canada.

Canadian here, and I'll have you know.. yeah you're right.

My only complaint is the data is 6 years old. Most likely there are more than the study says there are right now.


Yotsubato t1_j0q0yrf wrote

It takes that long to gather and vet sources and finally publish results.

OF and mainstream other online sex work is a very new phenomenon


yumri t1_j0qev3e wrote

My point is the study is 2 years long the data is 6 years old. That means the data was 4 years old at the start of the study.

"There's more of this risky/illegal behaviour than our stats would let on."

Wow, what revelations.

People were upset when the law force lefties to use their right hands was appealed, because it seemed to cause an inflation of left handed people.

No-one obviously changed their dominant hand. The stats just didn't tell the whole truth.

Sounds about right, I mean only fans is essentially porn for most folks and average porn star doesn't last more than 6months.

You don't say.

They would often pull out, but then still want to keep a hand in… which ironically, usually costs extra

I wonder if this means they need to prepare for a higher influx of medical needs and other health resources given the increase of potential workers

A Las Vegas sherif once told me that during big conventions it was not unusual to pick up school teachers and house wives for solicitation. They just came to town to earn a couple grand over the weekend.

Having read thousands of ads at this point I can say that even after covid most advertisers are doing in person work.

The take away is that the industry is changing and has changed drastically from the 1980s and 1990s where is really was much more difficult for people.

I'm following up (hopefully with some help) on the 2015-2016 data with more recently collected data and adding to that a qualitative study of advertisers who either use social media or have websites.

A subgroup of these advertisers represent collectives of various kinds with between 2 and 90+ workers. Over the last 3 months on average 14% of the workers appear to have left either permanently or temporarily. Overall this group is 79 advertisers and represents between 1800 and 2000 workers. In the last month two of the websites disappeared. So it looks like there really is a substantial amount of change in terms of employment in the industry in Canada.


SexWorkPopCA OP t1_j0qm4o1 wrote

The 14% change was month to month to be clear.

They need to talk about how women don't consume and why it's ok for mostly men to be if women had all the money, men would still be expected to pay

After many studies in Canada, about studies, studies suggest nothing ever gets done and it's the main reason the country is imploding.
