    To nitpick, the preferred term is sex worker.

      to nitpick your nitpick, “sex worker” describes someone working within the field as a whole; doing phone sex, stripping/exotic dancing, dom- and domme-ing, being the director of porn films, writing erotica…
      and then you have the jobs – most of them, actually – wherein actually selling sex for money isn’t on the table. how do you differentiate between a sex worker who is selling actual sex, and one who is selling something *related* to sex but not sex itself? by naming the former a prostitute.
      i’ve worked several jobs that can be listed as “sex work”; i’ve never been a prostitute.

      a further issue is that, currently, “sex worker” implies [due to current work within the sex work field] *agency* on the part of the sex worker… which, in many many cases, in utterly absent in the types of stories being told. at BEST, you have a person turning to sex work as the only viable option; more often, you have a person forced into it.

    Jenny,

    all that is true,
    the problem comes when defining a thing. while prostitution is sex work, not all sex work is prostitution. so if you only mean that specific subset of sex work… na da?
