>If I thought getting through 21 hours of my new job was challenging, I can't imagine what it would be like to work as a prostitute. Generally, even the fanciest ones face severe danger. If a client robs, beats, or rapes you, who are you going to turn to for help? Certainly not the police, as you'd then be arrested for breaking the law yourself. The law makes prostitutes even more vulnerable.

I think prostitution should be legal, and I wrote all about it at BlogHer. Hop over there and take a gander. Think I'm brilliant? Full of shit? (Well, that's sadly literally true, as my digestive system decided to melt down today, but that's another story.) Leave a comment over there and start the discussion: How do you think we can best protect sex workers?
