We Are Free To Choose

Day in and day out, I obsess over how to defend porn, online sex, and sex worker rights.  Despite my distaste for all American values, war, and the ignorance I know is not always the fault of those not given as many opportunities as I, this slut is fiercely American.  I have an ascetic devotion to argument, human rights, and to enlightening people on how to love our freedoms.  So, I further elucidate why online sex should be deconstructed and disconnected from prurience and its associations to sin, shame, and all things debaucherous so that we might respond rationally to this non violent thing. I, also talk, as always about adult consensual in person sex.

We can look at porn through more than one lens using all our senses. I do not see a beautiful man and a handsome woman. I do not see Gay people. I do not, merely masturbate to these sights and sounds. I see people doing something natural, non violent, and profitable. I see excitement, a great way to exercise, and freedom of expression. I see open minds and hearts. I see a cause to fight for. Whether we dismiss online sex as boring or not, foretelling political battles to keep it legal seems less irrational and more practical considering the nature of the The Web and our fights to defend our rights to express ourselves in whatever way we choose. This ages old profession gets held to scrutiny, endlessly, which is why I do, too with an eye toward making in person sex work either legal or decriminalized.

Reactionaries retort that questioning whether morals are anything but ends in themselves denies the fact that sex worker hate is real.  We experience financial, physical, and spiritual abuse.  We are told that we should stay in the closet, like LGBT people, and there is a strong implication that we are forcing children to have sex with us.  Whores are modern day witches, and we remain one of many groups still acceptable to hate. Why such irrational responses, instead of tolerant ones?  Why is it that no one assumes they can choose to watch online sex or not?  Have we decided that no man, woman, or child has any amount of self control?  Are we to grant and respect the rights of children and idiots, despite the fact that they have few or none?  Am I to concern myself with the care of others at the expense of my rights, my needs, and my wants?  Why must I believe in religion and not intellectualism or choice?  I was not aware that I had no right to choose my own destiny.  I did not know I was to be bound to chastity in order to bow to irrational fear.

Whores are not chimeras, and online sex is not going to harm you. Online sex is a perfect example of how free we are. We can see it as low art but art, nonetheless. It can, also be turned off by shutting down your computer. No one is forcing you to watch it. Parental controls are sufficient to prevent young people from seeing it, and if you still feel bad that some people will see things they should not, try to realize that humanity is flawed, and we must find ways to deal with imperfection, because as history has shown, attempting to perfect the human race has failed time and again.

I persist, then.  I will continue to work as a whore, because I love it.  I am good at it, and it is fun.  I am open minded, funny, and free.  I love nudity, sex, and living independently, and I will keep whoring until I die. The best revenge is a life well lived.  I am well.
