About

A meditation on conflicting values: How does sex work fit into a Marxist idealization of labor equity when the satisfaction of the client constitutes contradictions to the worker’s  core politics? But a boy’s gotta’ eat and a job’s a job.

 

Time is money / body is money / spirit is money / no escape.  True 'off the grid' is poverty but still part of the grid, dangerous and soul crushing.  Sell your body, sell your mind, sell your time, sell something, then see about convincing yourself you don't mind.  The physical world is at odds with traditions of oppression and inequality, so the physical world needs to be deemed beside the point - it really is anybody's butthole! - any body's.  Can bodies trump tradition?
