AASECT distinguishes consensual sex work, which is undertaken by consenting adults by choice, from sex trafficking, which is undertaken as forced or coerced labor. Sex trafficking is a result of force, coercion, or the threat of force, and often involves children. Moreover, AASECT recognizes that sex workers, including sexological bodyworkers, surrogate partners, professional dominants, and lifestyle educators sometimes facilitate the work of sex educators, counselors, and therapists by providing hands-on adjunctive treatment services.

House arrest for Farrell ex-cop, former Stoneboro Police Chief By Mike Gauntner, Online Content Manager Posted: Aug 10, 2018 5:27 AM EDT MERCER, Pa. -A former Stoneboro Police Chief and Farrell Police Officer has been sentenced to four months of house arrest after being caught having sex with a prostitute while on duty and pocketing money donated for a police K-9 program.
Action Alert: On July 19 legislation was introduced by Oakland City Council Member Abel Guillen to arrest sex workers’ clients, and tow and remove their cars. Stepping up arrests and the removal of men’s cars who are purportedly looking to pay for sex will force sex workers into more isolated and dangerous spaces, increasing their vulnerability to rape and other violence. What it won’t do is stop prostitution.
