Also, criminalizing customers (like it happens in Sweden) will always lead to a marginalization of sexworkers (as it happens in Sweden) since they have to operate covertly and under the police‘s radar in order to be able to conduct their business forcing them to seek protection by criminals.
Normalize and legalize sexwork so we can apply all the legal protection regular employees and self-employed people have. That includes being able to be legally employed in sexwork, register a business in sexwork or being a legal self-employed sexworker with all the costs and benefits (taxation, workplace safety, healthcare etc.) a any regular business comes with.
I like the idea of having it as a normal job. Maybe also with a workers Union or a high minimum wage.
I don't want to prohibit someone to work in their dream job. I want to avoid people from eastern Europe or students are exploitet because they need the money for studies or family.
Actually I didnt know the Swedish model before the disc in the green party
@nvi before that I always thought that there was legal prostitution in Europe like in Germany and illegal prostituion in the US. I understand that there are people who like to work this way, but I don't think that should be an argument to look away from problems that seem to exist.
No one is saying we should look away from exploitation.
But in order to do any policing towards exploitation in sexwork, we first need to create the safe-space for non-exploiting sexwork to exist.
You can’t be „pro sexworkers“ and „anti sexwork“ at the same time since sexwork will always exist one or the other way.
