Please Join Us on March 26, 2013 on

the Alpharetta Campus of GA Perimeter College for this historic appearance of

Actor/Director/Producer Jasmine Guy

Jasmine Guy

Guy is the national spokesperson for the “I Am Not Yours” Campaign co-founded by Mona Stephen and Natalie A. Gates.

“I Am Not Yours”seeks to publicize the problem of the child sex trafficking industry both in metro Atlanta and in the nation.

 

If you think that human trafficking, organized child/teen endangerment and exploitation rings, and everyday sexual assault and violence don’t impact you, read on.  If you’ve experienced any of this directly or  indirectly there may be more you can glean from our postings.   If you are an activist, know that we know that information alone isn’t enough.  It is simply a start.  It is what we can do to join the fight.

What Constitutes Sex Work?

There is much discussion of sex for hire, specifically, the rights, ills,benefits, exploits, and contradictions associated with it. If the condemnation of sex work could stand up to close scrutiny, would sex work disappear? (Why) should it?

Like gun control, marijuana, and abortion, this topic is typically debated without benefit of facts or relative truth; without reference to condition, culture, class, or circumstance; without the inclusion of the voices of sex workers themselves.

We don’t presume to have a neat solution for keeping sex workers safe or for keeping those who utilize them honest. What we do offer is this information that attempts neutrality for the sake of engaging all kinds of readers -including sex workers themselves- regardless of your beliefs and ideas about prostitution, pro dominance, phone sex operators, striptease, web cam sex operators, call boys, escort services, peepshows, the adult video industry, or sex bartering.

Readers will notice, however, neutrality at Sex Positive Works ends squarely where abduction, rape and other violence; child/teen assaults, endangerment and exploitation; and human trafficking begin. This is why, although the issues, can overlap, we dedicate separate pages to their discussion.

Check back periodically, as we do add information and resource links.  Provision of links doesn’t indicate SPW’s agreement with all titles or content.  Opinions are those of the source-writers.
