The Dangerous Life of Commercial Sex Workers
Commercial sex workers – whether escorts, exotic dancers, cam girls, or porn stars – face much higher rates of physical and sexual violence throughout their lives.
Even women in the webcam modeling industry, which is falsely portrayed as a safe alternative, face intense verbal abuse online and real-life violent stalking that can quickly turn deadly.
Despite the higher risk of sexual assault, women in the industry are not typically protected by rape laws in most states and, therefore, ineligible for filing charges against their attackers.
These women have faced a hard life full of violence and challenges at an early age. We strive to reach them with the right resources.
