Measles concerns: In addition, a few League members were responsible for the website KGirlsDelights. Unlike TRB, there was no component for commentary—KGirlsDelights merely linked out to personal webpages or ads on other review sites, like a Yellow Pages for Korean-American prostitution.
But most of The League's several dozen members had little or nothing to do with the maintenance and operation of either KGirlsDelights Washington free old sex The Review Board. Some members served as moderators on TRB, but it's no more accurate to say that The League as an entity "ran" these websites than it would be to say a kickball dree whose members met on Craigslist "run" that classified-ad site now. Even the police reports confirm that the group's activities were largely benign.
He would go Girls Charlesbourg to attend four more over the next several months, the last in late October Hillman describes the content of these meetups as including talking about sexual encounters in "graphic" terms but also discussing "the things they would bring" sex workers, "what kind of food" the K-Girls liked, and "when and how much they tipped.
Hillman's reports also indicate that many League members shunned in-person meetups because they prized anonymity. The five happy hours he went to were attended by less than a dozen men each, and even they only shared Washington free old sex TRB Washington free old sex with one another.
Police determined their real identities by surveilling the meetups and running members' license plates. Members who didn't attend physical meetings were identified via "personal email accounts Washington free old sex pursuant to search warrants," Hillman reported in Certifications for Determination of Probable Cause against them.
Some members were also identified by subpoenaing records associated with their IP addresses. Google, Microsoft, Comcast, and other entities were all forced to hand over private Washington free old sex data. Private emails and messages between League members, obtained by police and included in court documents, make clear that while these men enthusiastically embraced prostitution, they did not want to be patrons of sex-trafficking victims and believed with good reason that the women they visited were freely engaged in the sex trade.Wife Want Casual Sex Mill City
Occasionally, one would acknowledge that some particular provider wasn't thrilled with the job, but even these instances reveal agency on the part of the women. For Women wants hot sex Brady Lake Ohio, a lengthy review from TRB user "Eash" notes that Thai-agency sex worker "Vicky" didn't seem very engaged or enthusiastic.
Statements from Zitars, the man who ran Washington free old sex, indicate that he frowned on too Gloryholes Saint lucas Iowa Asian sex workers advertising Washington free old sex not because he believed they were being trafficked, but because he believed they attracted law-enforcement attention.
According to case summary against Zitars, he complained to undercover King County Detective Mike Garske last fall that President Obama and "the feds" Washington free old sex giving police money to pursue "human trafficking" that winds up being used against prostitution generally. The government wants to paint all these girls as victims, Zitars told Garske, "when we all know that isn't the case.
Neither Zitars nor any of the alleged League members were actually charged with human trafficking.
The only two men initially arrested on suspicion of human trafficking eventually copped to a much lesser charge as part of a Adult seeking hot sex Nevis Minnesota 56467 deal. Nor have they been charged with patronizing a prostitutethe standard misdemeanor charge levied against men who solicit sex in Washington. Prosecutors say the men promoted the prostitution of "one or Washington free old sex unidentified individuals" by posting reviews online, Women want sex Coldwater on Washington free old sex other's reviews, and emailing with one another about sexual experiences.
It's an unusual interpretation of promoting prostitution, a charge generally levied at suspected "pimps," "madams," escort-agency owners, or others who somehow profit directly from the prostitution of a third party. It essentially charges the men with facilitating prostitution for having written stories about sex online. Todd Maybrown, attorney for defendant Stephen Jenkins, sought further clarification from the county about what he described as the "novel" and "unprecedented" charge his client faces.
The state claims that "each defendant is guilty of the felony offense simply because he became a member of the group that is known as The League," Maybrown wrote in an email, adding that he "has been unable to identify any similar prosecution in Washington or anywhere else in the United States.
In May, a judge partially granted Washington free old sex motion for a "bill of particulars," in which prosecutors explained exactly which part of the promoting-prostitution statute his client was charged under and Washington free old sex what rationale. Shortly thereafter, Maybrown and lawyers of other alleged League members each received a letter from the county.

The case "presented some very unique and unprecedented First Amendment and proof issues," said Zitars' attorney. The May 26,correspondence from Senior Deputy Prosecutors Val Richey and Gary Ernsdorff who currently serves as board president for the Domestic Abuse Women's Network advised that on June 2, the county would file a motion to amend the charges against all Washingto defendants.
First, Washington free old sex defendant currently charged with one count of promoting prostitution in the second degree aex receive an additional count of the same. More Lonely wants sex tonight Caddo Valley, the state planned to add "a sexual motivation enhancement on all charged counts for Washington free old sex defendants.

Prosecutors pointed out that "each sexual motivation Washintton on a Washinyton C felony carries an additional 12 months of straight prison time per allegation that runs consecutively to the underlying" sentence, in addition to adding three years of post-release supervision by the Department of Corrections.
Of course, feee was one way Washington free old sex Lawyers were encouraged to contact them directly for specifics "on the terms sez the plea offer and sentence recommendation for your specific client.
The case "presented Washungton very unique and unprecedented First Amendment and proof issues that Mr. Zitars looked forward to pursuing at trial," his lawyer, Zach Wagnild, wrote in a sentencing memorandum to the court. It isn't the first time this year that a plea Washijgton brokered by Ernsdorff raised eyebrows.
In March, a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals panel reprimanded the state prosecutor as well as Wagnild, who served as a King County prosecutor himself from to for his role in a case involving a man named Joshua Frost. Frost now "maintains that the prosecution withheld material, exculpatory evidence" that "would have undermined the testimony of Edward Shaw, a key prosecution witness" who testified in exchange for plea deals on the domestic violence, drug, and unlawful firearm charges he was facing, the court explained.
On August 29, however, Kozinski withdrew the seex decision. Mark Enfield, 58, is the owner of a marketing firm that contracts with military clients. He just joined The League last December and attended his first meeting on the day of its bust. According to the Certification for Determination of Probable Cause against Enfield, his criminal actions include posting 12 reviews on TRB over a seven-year period—reviews Wadhington such advice to other men as "treat her like your girlfriend and don't be a dickweed"—as well as emailing with other League members.
In the first such email, Enfield Washington free old sex that he likes paying for sex because he works "a ridiculous number of hours" and spends half of his time Washingtonn on travel, so time is his "most precious commodity. Enfield is typical of League members, based on court documents. Most come across as caring, Washington free old sex, and protecting, looking as much for Wasington connection as sexual Washington free old sex. We can't know how the League members actually treated women during their encounters, but all the available Washington free old sex suggests that they were respectful, and interested exclusively in consensual activities.
Noah Jorgenson, 27, is a software developer at Microsoft. The evidence against him, like the others, consists of posts he made to TRB approximately 44 in — and emails to sex workers and fellow hobbyists. In one private email to the other men, he described his first time paying for sex—in Australia, where it's legal—and how he and the sex worker cuddled and talked all night afterward.
Stephen Jenkins, Washington free old sex, was accused of posting 26 reviews to TRB over a two-year period. These reviews as presented in "representative Washington free old sex by police include tips such as: But if you want to be Full figured sbf seeking 61 Seattle va 61 for an hour with the girl that you WISH all your ex girlfriends had actually been… Call her now.
In an intro email to other League members, Lui explains that he is married and loves his wife se but although she has a "hot body," she "doesn't like or love sex. Virmani—director of worldwide health for Microsoft until his recent arrest—had the bad luck of arriving for an appointment just as detectives rree busting the place in early January. Virmani's case documents contain an email he Washinvton to League members later that day. After Detective Garske approached, "he told me that I was not under arrest but I was about to go into a crime scene, so they just want my cooperation," wrote Virmani, noting that he could hear "girls crying inside the apartment" as cops entered.
He'd never been in a situation like that before, he Washington free old sex, and he was open with the detective. The answer was yes.
That spring, Virmani would become one of six men added to the original complaint against League members. In detectives' "representative examples" of his digital misconduct, Virmani describes indie sex Looking for car blo or you host Julia as "a very sensitive and smart person" who is "very easy to have a conversation with.
Despite the language barrier, I felt a genuine connection with her. Accused League members have paid dearly for their associations. Even if some are ultimately found innocent, the men arrested as part Washington free old sex this quixotic crusade against prostitution are already—pardon the pun—screwed.
Their names have been printed and broadcast as sex traffickers. Some were immediately let go from their jobs. Richard Homchick, 50, lost his job as a regional library manager and his board position with a local theater. Initially the only Washington free old sex to plead guilty to promoting prostitution, he later filed a motion to change his plea to not guilty. In the motion, he wrote of being subjected to "sudden and intense media coverage"— local press claimed Homchick was running a "prostitution website" and tied to Washington free old sex "sex-trafficking ring"—and having his life "turned upside down in a very short time.
O'Donnell Lady seeking real sex East Orange Homchick's request to change his plea. Faced with the Washington free old sex of elevated charges if he didn't, Sigurds Zitars plead guilty on June 30 to three counts of promoting prostitution. As part of the deal, he was sentenced to 90 days of electronic home detention for each count, to be served concurrently, and 12 months in community custody. While in community custody, he's subject to restrictions on where he can live or travel and must pay "supervision fees" to the Department of Corrections, report regularly to Washington free old sex community corrections officer, submit to regular drug testing, and complete a course on Stopping Sexual Exploitation.
He's Washington free old sex indefinitely banned from voting or owning a firearm. Jenkins also accepted a plea deal, though in his case it was done through what's known as an Alford plea. This type of plea allows a defendant to admit the state's evidence is likely to persuade a judge or jury while still asserting his innocence and without conceding that the state's version of events is correct.
Mark Yamada, 51, signed a plea deal on June 28, with a recommended penalty of either 30 days in King County jail or hours of community service.
In his handwritten statement of guilt, Yamada admits that he "knowingly advanced the prostitution of an individual by posting a review on TheReviewBoard. I knew the individual was a prostitute and that the review contributed to her business.
Paul Rhinehart, who admitted to leasing an apartment Phone chat for Lampeter sex workers to operate out of in addition to posting reviews, would do the same, with prosecutors also recommending that he be sentenced to six months in jail or work release.

The way King County has used prostitution charges in this case should alarm anyone who believes in free speech and free association. In the name of stopping sexual exploitation and human trafficking, law enforcement is devoting vast resources to prosecuting men who want to pay consenting Aex women for sex—and maybe sometimes talk about it.
As Alison Bass—a journalism professor at West Virginia University and author of the Wasihngton about prostitution law, Getting Screwed — wrote on her website about the case in January: But Washington free old sex disingenuous for law enforcement to wrap what they're doing in the guise of sex Washington free old sex. The goal of the court-ordered course is "to deconstruct the toxic masculinity that is at the dree of men's sex-buying practices.
The "Stopping Sexual Exploitation" class prosecutors are pushing—so far, Richey and Ernsdorff have recommended it for every male defendant who has accepted a plea deal—is especially troubling.
It is run Woman looking hot sex Paron Arkansas a nonprofit group called the Organization for Prostitution Survivors OPSwhich was founded "to address the harm of prostitution" and Washington free old sex not differentiate between forced prostitution—i.
The stated goal of the men's course is to "reframe prostitution…as a practice of gender-based violence rather than as a victimless crime" and "to deconstruct the toxic masculinity that Wshington at the root of men's sex-buying practices. Qualliotine and Richey are also co-leads of a government-funded "sex buyers intervention program" called Buyers Beware.
Qualliotine says the first goal of OPS is providing "services for folks who are in prostitution or getting out of prostitution"—things such Washington free old sex case management, art workshops, yoga classes, drug-dependency counseling, and support groups. The Stopping Sexual Exploitation course League members must take consists mainly of weekly, three-hour long group sessions that focus on topics like gender inequality and how prostitution is rooted in "men's entitlement.
Before co-founding OPS, Qualliotine co-authored a paper with anti sex-work activist Melissa Farley and reportedly described radical feminist Andrea Dworkin—one of the most prominent anti-pornography warriors in the s and '80s— as "the stone of my life …that had an important impact and sent out ripples in all directions.
But while people may misquote her as alleging that "all sex is rape," there's no mistaking Dworkin—who's prone to saying there are Washington free old sex such things as prostitutes, only "prostituted women"—on issues like Housewives wants real sex Kirbyville Missouri 65679 and commercial sex.
Qualliotine is also the former head of a Portland-based program called the Sexual Exploitation Education Project SEEPcommitted to "making men more accountable for the persistence of Wahsington. SEEP folded after Multnomah County withdrew its support, citing a desire to start its own program modeled after one ole San Francisco offered Washington free old sex a diversion program rather than a condition of sentencingaccording to Qualliotine.
A analysis of Qualliotine's Portland "john school" compared former participants in a SEEP workshop to men arrested for Looking for a Chromo Colorado date who did not do the program and found no significant difference between the recidivism rates in the groups, although recidivism rates among all the men were so low that researchers said no conclusions could be drawn.
But it's hard not to conclude that history is repeating here—or perhaps escalating. King County's case against The League reveals troubling new tactics to "make men more accountable for the persistence of prostitution" and represents a doubling down on what's known as the "end demand" strategy. Drawing on legal models first popularized in Sweden and other Nordic countries, prosecutors claim that because some percentage of people engaged in prostitution will always be underage or forced into the trade, the solution is arresting clients so they'll eventually stop Washington free old sex to pay for sex.
Ending demand was also a popular rallying cry during '80s drug-war escalation, giving law enforcement motive to focus on drug users rather than just dealers or smugglers. Drugs had Washington free old sex effects on individuals and society, the story went, so we needed to deter individual drug use and then, voila, the whole industry would dry up. And to deter individual use, we would make penalties so severe and getting caught so seemingly possible that people would choose to stop using, buying, and selling drugs.
The effect of end-demand ideology in the drug war was to Adult wants hot sex Newington entrench policy away from harm reduction i. Every industry, but especially those operating in black markets, will have bad elements. But rather than focusing on those—the people who sell tainted drugs, rip others off, or commit violence or theft in the course of conducting drug business—an end-demand mandate asks Washington free old sex and prosecutors to see drugs themselves as inherently harmful, and anyone who uses as targets.
A couple of decades later, illegal drugs are more popular than ever in America while prisons are full of people serving lengthy sentences for things like possessing a small amount of Washington free old sex or living with someone who made Married wife wants nsa Chapel Hill. The history is clear that "end demand" strategies don't work.
Yet here we are now, trying to stamp-out sexual exploitation not by making it easier for victims to come forward, allowing those who choose sex-work to do it safely, or providing services to those at Washington free old sex. Not by devoting law-enforcement attention to the small proportion of people in the sex trade who rely on violence and fraud. No, instead we're being asked to accept that the exchange of sexual companionship for cash is inherently harmful, even if all parties involved say otherwise.
And hence, like the nonviolent drug users before them, people who want to pay consenting adults for erotic play—or maybe just talk about doing so online—must be made into the targets of elaborate, expensive, coordinated sting operations.
In the next section, we'll explore more about Washington free old sex these social crusades are serving. If one thing is clear, it's certainly not sex workers themselves. Under slightly different circumstances, Jabong Kim might have made headlines as a sympathetic figure. Residing in America illegally, with only a rudimentary grasp of English, the year-old native of South Korea told officials Washington free old sex had come here to flee an abusive marriage, according to a Bellevue Police Department summary of the case against her.
After settling in Washington state, she started taking in extra money by renting out spare rooms in her apartment—first in Seattle, then in nearby Bellevue—to other Korean sex workers. This was her undoing. As soon as a sex worker starts helping other sex workers do what they do, they cross a legal Washington free old sex. No longer a "victim" of sexual exploitation, nor merely a person guilty of misdemeanor prostitution, they become culpable for felony sex crimes such as promoting Washington free old sex or even human trafficking.
Each of those charges was initially lobbed at Kim. This may be Washington free old sex way that the American approach to prostitution does the most damage.
Sex workers who operate on the streets and all alone—no sharing an apartment, no employing a Washington free old sex or security Get laid Irvine, no hiring a feee to find and screen clients, no posting to a private web forum where safety tips can be exchanged—can, at worst, be charged with simple prostitution and perhaps loitering, or whatever the local variation of these is called.
Both are misdemeanors.
And while such charges can be distressing and disruptive, they pale in comparison to the indictments that can await anyone involved in a "prostitution enterprise"—or, as it is more often called these days, a "sex trafficking ring.
That is decidedly Sexy woman seeking sex Lake Buena Vista how crusades against "pimps" and "sex traffickers" are sold to the public. Inwhen Washington's legislature voted to increase the penalties for promoting and patronizing prostitutionKent Police Chief Ken Thomas said the changes would help law enforcement "reduce the commercial Washington free old sex of sex" so that "victims of the sex trade can start new lives.
Kevin Parker R—Spokanewho sponsored the bill to ratchet up potential prison time and fines for those—like Kim—accused of promoting Washington free old sex, said the legislation "sends a firm message to those abusing women and children through prostitution that Washington state will not put up with Phone numbers to meet horny Cranston criminal behavior any longer.
But much like laws designed to crack down on major drug traffickers wound up used against anyone tangentially associated with the drug trade, statutes purported to punish violent pimps, human traffickers, and sexual abusers end up as cudgels to promote a state's total prohibition on prostitution.
That was certainly the result of the major "human trafficking organization" bust Washington police announced in January—at the center of Washington free old sex stood Kim. Part one Washington free old sex this story described the two men law enforcement painted as masterminds of the "trafficking" organization, who were later revealed to be glorified secretaries and landlords for Seattle-area sex workers.
Part two explored the overblown case against an online advertising forum called The Review Board TRB and a sex buyers hobbyist group known as "The League. Washington free old sex documents filed with the King County Superior Court, KCSO Detective Luke Hillman asserts that "individual prostituted persons are often controlled by an 'agency,'" which sets them up in posh apartments that function like prisons.
These women, known in the community as "K-Girls," rarely leave and "are advertised as available twelve to fourteen hours a day, seven days a week," he wrote.
The agencies use "bookers" to set up appointments and screen clients. Bellevue Detective Shelby Shearer was assigned to investigate Kim, who Washington free old sex suspected of running Fantasy K-Girls from an apartment in downtown Bellevue. In some instances, police explicitly state that they left before any sexual activity could take place; in other instances, no such exit is noted.
Washington free old sex
For Tera, Shearer simply noted that "at the end of the appointment Wasnington Tara [sic], Detective Kraft was able to obtain Tara's personal cell number. Later that summer, Kraft made an appointment with Kim—who was also working as a sex worker herself—where he "learned that she was currently working as an independent but admitted to having ties to Yoko and Tera. It recommended charging her with prostitution, promoting prostitution, permitting prostitution, money laundering, and human trafficking.
Soon thereafter, police raided Kim's apartment and arrested her. The Seattle Times subsequently described her as the owner of a brothel "where prostituted women from South Korea were forced to work often for 12 hours a day, seven days a week, to pay off debts. But Mueller and Durnal, like Kim, were mostly guilty of providing K-Girls with se where they could see clients.
TRB was simply an advertising and review forum for escorts—one Washington free old sex dozens like it online, and one valued in the sex-work commnity. And "The League" was just a loosely affiliated group of men who were enthusiastic about visiting sex workers. None of Mooms seeking sex Ardsley New York entities Washington free old sex anyone from overseas.
The sensational arrest of Kim, Mueller, Durnal, and around a dozen men who patronized their apartments made local, national, and international headlines and TV news segments. But there was nary a press release or tweet from local law enforcement when three of these cases were resolved. Kim, Mueller, and Durnal, all originally arrested on suspicion of human trafficking, were each offered and accepted plea deals—the two men in February and Kim in early May. Kim, who has since moved to Los Angeles, pleaded guilty to two counts Washinvton misdemeanor "permitting prostitution.
In addition, she must complete group support sessions at the Organization for Prostitution Survivors OPSa fdee that focuses on activities such as yoga, counseling, and art-therapy for "survivors" and classes aimed aex changing men's attitudes toward prostitution At one recent OPS art-therapy session, women painted and decorated old high-heels. The outcomes of these cases should cast doubt on the state's original fdee. If these individuals Washington free old sex really the monsters prosecutors initially made them out to be, why did they get off the hook with a few weeks in jail and some don't-do-prostitution classes?
How could law enforcement turn these Washington free old sex villains loose to imprison and victimize vulnerable women elsewhere? Richey says Kim was "operating a brothel, but it was very low-volume in terms of, like, occasionally another woman would come and work there. But even if the Wsshington they ran were what WWashington people would Wzshington describe…as a coercive environment," is that Housewives seeking sex tonight Paynesville West Virginia of activity "something where we're going to charge a ffee charge as opposed to promoting prostitution?
Probably not. As for Kim, there Washiington evidence she was "operating a esx, but it was a very low-volume in terms of, like, occasionally another woman would come and work there," explains Fere. In Kim's case, the plea offer came soon after her lawyer, Tom Conom, challenged the validity of testimony she gave to police after being Single horny Alberton ladies. According to a motion Conom filed with the King County Superior Court in March, Kim's primary language is Korean and her understanding of English is "rudimentary" an assertion that checks out—texts Kim exchanged with undercover detectives, later reproduced as evidence in police reports, reflect a far from fluent grasp of English.
Yet during Kim's questioning by Washington free old sex, the translator hardly translated anything, wrote Conom.
A transcript of the interrogation makes clear that "Kim misunderstood many questions" and may not have even understood why she was under arrest. According to the transcript, Kim's responses during the interview were frequently unintelligible—including when she was asked if she understood her Miranda rights. And when she was asked, in English, whether she would like her rights read with translation, whether she would like to continue the questioning, or whether there was "anything about that you didn't understand," her reply was, "OK, yes.
The officers Washington free old sex with the interrogation. Lim didn't translate the Miranda rights or Shearer's questions. No one sought clarification as to what Kim had intended her "OK, yes" Washington free old sex be a response to. But even if the Washingtin Lim Washingtonn been more helpful, Kim's interrogation wouldn't have passed legal muster. The law requires a neutral interpreter to be present, and the FBI Washington free old sex one of the partnering agencies in this investigation.
It makes little sense to assign one motive to all of the Korean women involved in Seattle's sex business. Unfortunately, Washington free old sex are unable to hear directly from these anonymous women. But what we do know about them—from law enforcement, agency managers, clients, other sex workers, and online clues—suggests some may be sending money back to their families in Korea, some may have school or business Wadhington they're trying to save for, some may actively enjoy the work, some may be indebted to scammers or other Oral expert 4 Oroville fuck single teens individuals, some may be mired in credit-card debt, and some may simply have needed to get out of Korea and, without legal immigration status or great English skills, found prostitution their best or only option here.
Slater said she met several K-Girls at a TRB meet-and-greet party and they "admitted to coming here with full knowledge…and free sxe.
Washington, DC Sex Party Events | Eventbrite
In some cases, their range of options might not have been ideal—but they were options. And the option of sticking with sex work was the one that each of them chose, and continued to choose, every day. Whatever the individual motivations of the women caught up in King County's investigation, or the degree of ambivalence they felt about prostitution, there's nothing indicating they couldn't have fled at any time had they wanted to.
They certainly weren't locked in their luxury apartments, forced to fork over money and passports, or prohibited from making decisions Washington free old sex the services they provided. If anything, the K-Girl agencies, "brothels," and bookers allowed migrant sex workers to earn money in the safest and most comfortable way possible.
For now, there are other online forums for free or low-cost advertising, but law enforcement—in King County and elsewhere—has vowed to shut these down, too.
The feds have already taken down at least two major sex-work advertising forums, MyRedbook. Before that, authorities went after the adult-services section of Craigslist and the erotic-ad sections Sexy woman in n Springdale Arkansas today alt-weekly papers. Most Wzshington, they've turned their attention to a Craigslist-cousin called Washingtton.
To the most privileged sex workers—those who can host their own websites, rely on an established client list, and so on—this shouldn't prove a huge problem. It's the most vulnerable who will Washington free old sex most harmed by the online forums' absence: Without sites like TRB, these sex workers Washinton be forced back on to the streets and into all of the danger Washington free old sex picking up clients there entails.
Not only do street-based sex workers lack a way to pre-screen Washington free old sex or work from locations they know are safe, but it's this prostitution scene that draws the most community outcry with some good reason. Rather than meeting at hotels, private residences, and other discrete locations throughout a city, sex workers and clients in a street-based system must rendezvous in known prostitution areas, increasing car and foot traffic, scandalizing neighbors, and driving yet more calls to freee police.
Even if online ad forums persist, client crackdowns like Od County's create worse conditions for everyone in the sex trade. League members and TRB patrons were Chinese women for Ponce to email with sex workers, vouch for one another's authenticity, offer personal information to providers or their bookers for screening purposes, leave evidence of their personalities on the review sites, and visit "brothels" like the one run by Kim instead of insisting on secluded locations.
All of this helps keep sex workers safe and reduces the chance that they'll wind up alone with someone Washington free old sex alleged serial killer Neal Hores seeking women. But knowing that police are Washington free old sex after prostitution clients via standard stings and elaborate undercover operations—seizing all sorts of private records and assets in the process—what are the chances future clients will be as willing to take part in such harm-reduction processes?
Prostitution prohibitionists like to pretend this is a swx thing, like dedicated sex "hobbyists" will simply drop the habit. But research has shown that the threat of getting caught generally doesn't deter clients. In one recent study out of the U. And when it comes to commercial sex, "careful" means more reluctance about the kinds of measures that help keep everyone engaged in prostitution—whether they want to be there or not—as safe as possible.
