Today's LA Times profiles the effects of the economic downturn on the women who work at Donna's Ranch, a brothel in Nevada. The women are reliant on the money of men who are facing failing fortunes of their own. And so a group of women who admit that they had other plans for the kind of career they wanted are stuck working longer hours for less pay. Just remember, these are the women who choose to do sex work in a state where it's legal. Just imagine how much worse it is for the women with no options or protections. [LA Times]

I watched "American Pimp" this weekend. A woman who worked at the Bunny Ranch described one of the benefits of legal sex work as being not being forced to sleep with the dudes who look like serial killers. I voted yes on Prop K. (Also: pussy is never going out of business. If prostitution's making less money, we're all doomed.)
