Without conflating trafficked persons, why should Sex Work be criminalised or decriminalised?
Sex work is a huge issue for many men and women around the world. Those who are in sex work through choice* face discrimination globally as their work is government limited or illegal. This means they are driven underground where buyers have the greater ability when it comes to negotiating (this includes the Nordic Model where criminalisation of clients is essentially criminalisation of workers).
There are debates FOR and AGAINST the decriminalisation of sex work that can fall outside these over stated items. So go ahead. I'd like to see thoughts from persons who aren't tied, in some way, to sex work. An outsiders view is always interesting.
*Trafficked victims are VICTIMS and should not be referred to within a discussion regarding consenting adults
