Policy, Privacy & the Technology of Sex Work

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sexual commerce has a history of driving technological innovation: porn and early camera adoption, porn and VHS, porn and high-speed internet demand... While sexual media often fuels technological growth, the "oldest profession" is frequently in a position of either rapid adoption of -- or reaction to -- new technology.
Dodging law enforcement on one side and the very real risks of stalking, harassment, and outing on the other, modern sex workers are not just reacting to current tech trends but are strategically adopting new technology as a means to safeguard their anonymity, find new clients, and network with each other to advance the cause of sex workers' rights.
This session will cover how current policy affects sex workers' use of technology, how sex workers are using tech to preserve their privacy, and how sex workers, law enforcement, clients, and activists are interfacing with technology to change sex work as we know it.
