I find it interesting that as a medical doctor, I exchange payment in the form of money with people to provide them with advice and treatment for sex-related problems; therapy for sexual performance, counseling and therapy for relationship problems, and treatment of sexually transmitted infection. Isn’t this basically sex work?

This op-ed by Tialeng Mofokeng argues for the decriminalization of sex work. Why?
Well, these decriminalization movements are happening in other fantastic places, like South Africa. She also states that people misunderstand what a sex worker actually is. So, what is a sex worker?
Not all sex workers engage in penetrative sex, though, undeniably, that is a big part of sex work. Sex-worker services between consenting adults may include companionship, intimacy, nonsexual role playing, dancing, escorting, and stripping. These roles are often pre-determined, and all parties should be comfortable with them. 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.
Hey, so it is OKAY. There are more services instead of sex so it is OKAY. Sell your person and you may find that special someone! You're also contributing to the economy! Come on! Funnily enough, drug addiction, abuse, disease, emotional distress, and other results are never mentioned. Don't think about it! Things are different now. It's all about the Benjamins!
It's also worth noting that the trafficking of young women has skyrocketed.
