The Oldest Profession Evolves

Gregory Gilderman writes for The Daily Beast on how the internet has revolutionized prostitution:

While critics have charged classified sites with facilitating sex trafficking, for women like Brittany, who have freely chosen prostitution and whose clients freely choose them, the Internet has made the transactions fast, simple, and discreet. New research suggests it hasn’t merely moved online and indoors those who once worked the street, but done something more transformative: created a different sort of sex worker—more educated, younger—and a bigger market of women selling sexual services in the United States and men purchasing those services.

“Brittany’s” final word on the subject, though? “I would honestly never recommend this to anyone.”
