Same :-)

Yeah, in one conversation I was in, the subject started with pornography but ended with sex work :-p.

One has to make room for a great variety of unique individual situations, I think. I sure don't consider myself to be an expert in these fields.
Agreed. This is why I'm happy I was able to find people who had studied the issue more or who were even sex workers in the past. And ofcourse people like newrelations, who is -married- to woman who engages in sex work is just icing on the cake :-)

Could be, heh :-). I try to be as polite as possible, but when you step into hot topics, it may still not be enough to avoid getting burned -.-
