The oldest business in the world trading sex for money has also been at the forefront of every wave of digital technology, from online advertising to social networking to digital video compression. Yet it has never not been controversial. In this event, well dig into some of the recent, past, & present on selling sex online. Have digital technologies like OnlyFans & Instagram changed sex work & other forms of selling pleasure? What new opportunities do digital tools open up for workers? And, why has the popularity of sex in digital spaces created a new front for the American culture wars, culminating in the 2018 passage of FOSTA-SESTA & the crackdown on Craigslist & Backpage?
Join QX for our first event of 2019. Following what is sure to be a lively discussion by our panelists, we'll have time for Q&A & mingling. Your $5 registration supports refreshments & the speakers.
NOTE: Any sex workers interested in the event are encouraged to attend for FREE, no questions asked. SWERFs & TERFs not welcome.
