    Dave, sexworkcanada.com Guest on Air America - Decriminalizing U.S. Prostitution

    This is especially for the many U.S. readers of this board but others may also be interested!

    Dave, sexworkcanada.com Guest on Air America - Decriminalizing U.S. Prostitution

    Wed night 3/12/08 I did a guest appearance on Air America "Clout with Richard Greene Do-Something Radio"

    I am usually very critical of myself but listening to the replay other than a few stumbles of words, I think I did quite good He asked the perfect questions and let me give long responses related to Spitzer, the Christian aspects - discussion of how founded libchrist.com, and how related to my interest in sexwork, are prostitutes screwed up people (no) and why people seek prostitutes.

    He mention how fantastic the discussion was which of course is nice and wants to have me on for a longer session in the future.

    Replay Podcasts are at

    Segment 1 http://www.hotlinkfiles.com/files/10...-Clout_2-1.mp3
    Spitzer discussion, the Liberated Christian to sexwork aspect, why men seek prostitutes etc.

    Segment 2 http://www.hotlinkfiles.com/files/10...-Clout_2-2.mp3
    3 attacks needed to change the laws so we have the same sexual freedoms that most of the rest of the world enjoys. These approaches are Constitutional (Lawrence vs Texas), Voter initiatives (discussed the SWOP Berkeley failure and why) and legislative (like Calf group), and issue of shame based society. Had to talk fast with limited time!

    While I do not agree with some of the extremist liberal views of some on Air America, this was a great outlet to get the message out about decriminalization of in private consenting adult sexwork.

    The show airs in major cities including in Phoenix on KPHX-AM 1480 as well as on XM Satellite Radio Ch 167

    UPDATE - Getting great response from escorts and others that have heard the broadcast from all over the U.S. Mostly saying it was a fantastic interview and so glad someone is speaking about for private sexwork in such a well informed way. Also have had some media responses and am willing to do other interviews.

    I now have done a page with the above info on the interview to refer the media or others to and have included links to other articles related to this "abuse" issue and why men take the risks to see private prostitutes:

    Escort's Transformation Experiences
    When I get the "abused" question I have so many articles on sexwork.com by escorts telling the positive side. I was reminded of perhaps the best to refer folks to which is of Belle in Niagara Falls who I met and with her enthusiastic permission share some of her personal blog entries in my article "An Escort's Transformation Experiences
    Honest Wisdom that can benefit Providers and our Culture" at http://www.sexwork.com/escorts/transformation.html

    Other public education articles on my AirAmerica page:
    Why is sexwork considered a shame based service by many? (article below)
    The men who sleep with prostitutes - Why
    Who Will Rescue Us from Those Who Wish to Rescue Us Against Our Will?

    CBS Evening News Coverage 3/14/08
    This was typical of many media reports. They start off by showing images of street hookers. The say how its such a high risk business with so many prostitutes murdered and coming from broken homes, abused by adults, bad boyfriends drugs etc. They even had the Phoenix Dignity (Catholic) lady on telling how her life was ruined by prostitution. She runs the Phoenix PD John program where first offenders sit thru all the horror stories of prostitution. As I said in my interview most of these are related to street hookers, which is maybe 10% of prostitution but unless a Spitzer situation pops up its all the public knows about. I said in private prostitution some are in it for the wrong reasons and have abuse just like in the overall culture. But far more choose it by their own choice, were not abused etc like the typical street hooker.

    Some of the other media did interview private sexworkers like Tracy Quan (Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl), Heidi Fleiss, Norma Jean Almodovar ("Cop to Callgirl" book fame) and others who had good answers about men seeking private escorts and willing to pay top prices for the privacy.
