The good side of stripping

Excellent piece. It's what the feminists who insist that sex work is necessarily exploitative of women should clue to, because I just don't see how you can be a feminist and oppose legal protections for sex workers.

We are in agreement on that.

What I found especially useful and insightful is prying apart desire from entitlement in terms of the negative aspects of sex work. Because AFAIAC there is nothing inherently wrong with male desire (or any other kind) in itself, it's the treatment of the object of desire as object, rather than person with agency, that's the problem. And really, the conjunction of wish with the expectation/demand that the wish be fulfilled is problematic more broadly and not limited by gender at all. In fact, I think I need to have a more detailed think on the subject of sense of entitlement, because that is a much better phrase (imho) to point at the problem of what is currently popularly called "privilege" in the SJW sense.
