How about ‘my body, his choice?’. The sex trade is dictated by the sex acts and exchanges a man is willing to pay for. It has nothing to do with women’s sexual wants, needs or bodily desires or functions. To frame the prostitution experience as something to do with a woman’s bodily autonomy or ‘choice’ when a) Women with the fewest options make up the bulk of the sex trade and b) The buyer holds the bargaining power in any interaction, is illogical, misleading and not the experience of the vast majority of women in the sex trade.
