‘When I Grow Up, I Want to Be A Sex Worker’ — Said No One Ever

“Many workers take on multiple roles with their clients, and some may get more physical while other interactions that may have started off as sexual could evolve into emotional and psychological bonding.”

Awesome. Let me gather my daughters and tell them the good news — it’s totally normal if you’re a doctor or a sex worker to become emotionally and psychologically bonded to your clients.

My friend, it’s time. We cannot reasonably sit by and allow the mystical “they” to have the loudest voice with our children. Or anyone else’s children. At 14, the average aged reader of this magazine is the same as the average age of girls entering into the sex trade. That means some are younger. These kids are counting on us to be the reasonable voice that speaks up and says, “I am all done. These are our children, and we are taking them back.”
