Porn. An industry estimated to be worth up to $97bn a year, yet people don’t like to talk about it.
Porn. An estimated 70% of people watch it, yet people don’t like to talk about it.
Why does an industry with so many customers, which generates so much income fail to protect the workers it employs. From financial censorship to a lack of regulations, sex workers are exploited and abused, but the stigma associated with the industry is increasing the risk to workers; an industry which is legal in many countries.
In this podcast, I interview both Ameen Soleimani and Allie Eve Knox from Spankchain about the issues faced by sex workers and how Spankchain is working to help them.
