Scarlet Road A Sex Workers Journey

I uploaded a documentary about Touching Base; an organization of sex workers who provide sexual services to the disabled. The description from their website is as follows: Our Principles

In 1979, the decriminalisation of sex work in New South Wales (NSW) Australia recognized sex work as a lawful occupation. The Sex Industry has a wealth of practical knowledge in dealing with a wide range of sexual issues and has the right to be respected and consulted as the primary stakeholders in any matters relating to the provision of sexual services in NSW. As the initiators of the Touching Base Project, sex workers in NSW are actively pursuing this right.

People with a disability have an intrinsic right to sexual expression. This right enables people to develop relationships, have sex, explore and express their sexuality and achieve intimacy without personal or systemic barriers. Furthermore, necessary personal and systemic supports must be provided for the expression of this right.

Please enjoy the four part series below and if so inspired, DONATE!

I'm going to close this post with a the song, "Tell Him" sung by Esperanza Spalding. I find myself inspired to listen to it when I am moved by the compassion of others or feel the need to inspire such compassion in myself. Thank you for visiting my blog.
