Helen told MEN: "The only men that have been nice to me are the ones that were paying me. “I would say one of the top five questions I am asked is do you regret being an escort. Well no - I have some great memories. Could I say that about my family or those who I have called my boyfriend? No. That speaks volumes. “I’m not saying that I didn’t have options and I’d be lying if I said I chose the easy way out. Some days I was repulsed by it. “But when you can pick your child up from school and pay your bills on time and be comfortable, it felt like the right thing to do at the time.”
For Mind to know the Real, it must enter a body. Therein it will revel in pleasure, and strive, and suffer, and die. Here you are, piloting a doomed craft on a river of glory

Author and Whore, Maggie will be joined by Triple-X Secretary Kerry Porth and New Democratic Party candidate Sven Robinson will host a panel discussion following the film. The War on the Whores is a feature-length documentary that exposes the harms and waste of America’s escalating crackdown on sex work which masquerades as fighting sex trafficking and rescuing vulnerable women and girls caught up in sexual exploitation.
One op editorial. Two totally different opinions. Posted below: Project SAFE's Aisha Mohammed's January op ed in Philly dot com, and Villa Nova's Legal Fellow Shea Rhodes discussing the op ed from an abolitionist perspective. Compare / Contrast. For those of us defined as youth survivors and adult sex workers we are caught between these radical extremes. As the PA motto goes its seems that No: both can’t survive!
JAN 10 • Thank you so much for your fair and balanced coverage of the 15th Annual IDTEVASW. Since 2012 SWOP and SAFE have strived to stand up and speak out in Philly on issues specific to stigma and gratuitous violence against sex workers. Folks are always amazed at how hard and painful this event is to do, yet in the end how truly blessed we are to be able to come together to do it. Many households in most areas of Greater Philadelphia, if not all of PA, are touched somehow by this issue. Talking about sex work and prostitution is hard. Living in shame and silence is harder. D/17 is not fun, though it is full of love. Truly. We are here because we have been there, and we care. Our voice is their voice. Thank you for covering the memorial. Words cannot even express the gratitude I feel right now. Philly is proving we got LOVE!
