Prostitution ceases to be prostitution and becomes “sex work.” Moreover, earning money from one’s sexuality is portrayed as a job like any other. The left and the media that follow it are trivializing the serious social problem of selling one’s body.

No one believed me that I had such a client who brought me canisters of gasoline. He worked for a state-owned company and had a fuel allowance. When he got more than he needed, he refuelled my car in front of my building,” this is how the confession of “sex worker” Ola begins the report published by the portal. The text has an unusually telling title: “Work like any other.” “Every day Ola starts by feeding her two cats. Both of them come to her. Then she either goes to the gym, where she has a personal trainer, or directly to her rented apartment, where she works. She has been in the business for a few months.

Joanna sells videos over the Internet, and also meets clients in person. She assures that she maintains the necessary security measures – she doesn’t make appointments at home, she doesn’t give out her real data. She makes no secret of the fact that “sex work” brings her not only money, but also satisfaction: “The joy on their faces is like a shot of dopamine for me. When a client comes to me who hasn’t had sex in 20 years, and is happy after the meeting… that’s a wonderful feeling.”

The third protagonist of the report, Zoja, raises the formal aspect of her “profession.” “She would prefer sex work to be legal.”
