I’ve never employed a sex worker but an online honor system may have real merit.
Just as myriad swingers sites allow soccer moms to commit adultery and married men to cheat with impunity, a new British website is helping people to become part-time prostitutes. …
Britain’s AdultWork website is plugging into the growing niche industry of sex-work dilettantes, people who spend a few hours a week in front of a camera, or in bed with a client, to augment their income — or maybe even just because they like it. …
At present it has almost 3,000 members offering services, and several times that number buying or browsing. In addition to sex, the services on offer include webcam peep shows, homemade movies, phone sex and sex by cell-phone SMS. The site launched in late 2003 but had little immediate impact. It’s taken just under two years to rise to prominence.
Indeed, with its ratings honor system, AdultWork is something like an eBay for sex. And sex isn’t the only service available through the site. All the secondary occupations supporting it are also listed — bodyguards, cleaners, receptionists, even web designers.
