Sex Work and 'tart-lit'

Zoe Williams wrote a thought provoking piece in the Guardian on Thursday discussing 'tart-lit', the Belle de Jour phenomenon and a consideration of sex work. A particularly interesting section reads:

'The reason [arguments in favour of sex work] always unravels, though, is violence. No feminist - first, second or third wave -can endorse prostitution because disproportionately often it has a violated or dead women at the end of it...I actually think this is ungendered - I would say the same about female sex tourists trading on the hardship of Cubans (or similar).'
