About Me

I came to the U.S. at age of 12 with my mother. We settled in sunny Florida, which was quite a contrast to Minsk. I have always been fascinated by sex and relationships. Sex Secrets is where I share sex advice, experiences, news, and sometimes a little humor. If you have a question about sex that you prefer not to post in the comments, you can email me at svetlanaivano(at)yahoo.com.

Legalizing Sex Work Works

This should be common sense: legalizing sex work both reduces sexually transmitted diseases and human trafficking. Despite the claims of authoritarians everywhere, prohibition never eliminates victimless “crimes,” such as prostitution, gambling or drug use. It only drives them underground.  Moreover, prohibition often makes the banned activities profitable enough that criminal enterprises spring up to take advantage of the new, unregulated markets that the government has created.

The debates around legalizing sexwork have been going on for years. And two of the big arguments against it are claims that sexwork increases the rates of sexually transmitted infections and leads to trafficking. Sexwork advocates say that these are the result of it being illegal and that, if we legalized it, things would improve.
