Every Ho I Know Says So (scarletalliancevideo)
EVERY HO I KNOW SAYS SO is a response to the total lack of accessible online resources for people looking for advice on how to be a good date or lover or partner to a sex worker. We want to support our lovers to continue unlearning the internalized stigma against sex workers, especially in intimate relationships. We think that sex workers themselves have valuable advice and direction to give to people who get into intimate relationships with us. This is the direct message we want to give to our lovers: “We hope that this video is useful to you in your journey to becoming a sex worker-positive and supportive lover and person in the community!!! By continuing to work on your attitudes about our work and educating yourself, you are showing us that you care. We love you!”
so some babes i know have worked really hard to make this important piece of work happen, some of the videos got lost in the process, but totally worth the efforts made on low budget and crossing 2 (at least?!!?!) continents over a few months. fuck yeah. watch this.
this is short, interesting, and good advice for anyone.
Please, please, please watch this video. It’s important because it was made by sex workers themselves (not some third party telling us how sex workers should feel or act) and because it highlights important information.
One point that might not be apparent for non sex workers: sex work is a lot of work. Ensuring one’s safety, health, well being, etc, etc does take a lot of effort and time (and resources). I believe this is also worth remembering, especially when we hear people give their uninformed opinions (somehow implying that sex work is an easy way out or an “easy” job).
The video is for partners and lovers of sex workers, but, even if you are not dating one, it is really worth watching. If you want to be a supportive friend or family member, the video also contains valuable information.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
