Emotional Responses

I dont like it. The law is pushing prostitution more
underground. There is more risk that something bad
happens. (Jakobsson, 2014)

Most clients are polite and respectful. It's only easy
to rob or rape us because society says it's OK and we
can't report it without being criminalized. Please
make us safer and allow us to be respected (Castro,
2012)

Emotional Responses

If prostitution were not an underground activity it
would allow us to much more effectively address the
serious problems of forced prostitution and other
abuses (McGinty, 2007)
