Following on from episode 105, this episode is a further discussion on sex work. We (finally!) go through listener mail on our older sex work episodes – 44 and 64. We investigate the idea of sex work as another form of labour as well as “First World” versus “Third World” sex work. Sources covered include: an academic study on the psychological characteristics of porn stars, the documentary Date My Pornstar, an article on a US college student doing porn to pay for her education, the Angry Hippie on consent, and the ICAS Oceania conference schedule.

This episode features an interview with Jane Green and Cameron Cox. Jane Green is a sex worker who is on the Executive Committee of the Scarlet Alliance and Cameron Cox is a sex worker who is involved in a sex worker outreach organisation. They discuss: the links between homophobia and whorephobia, sex work as work, why they are #NotYourRescueProject, Amnesty International’s AGM where different approaches to sex work were debated, and they make the case that decriminalisation is the model that leads to the best outcomes for sex workers.

You can hear part 1 of our interview with Jane and Cameron on episode 64 (sorry for the delay!). Also be sure to follow Cameron on Twitter @CamCoxSyd and check out Jane’s website Sexliesductape.me, follow her on Twitter @Sexliesductape and read her Guardian article ‘Listen to Sex Workers – You’ll Realise we have a lot to say about Labour Rights’.
