Pennoni Panels: Let's Talk About Sex ... Work
Start Date: 4/15/2021Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 4/15/2021End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description

A TikTok trend featuring the song lyric “Nobody asks you questions when you say you’re an accountant” featured users singing the song with descriptions about keeping their sex work, and their income from it, secret from their families and friends. Despite there being a substantial market for sex work, the stigma around those offering and consuming services remains potent. What constitutes sex work? Why does labor around sexual pleasure remain taboo? What are the lines between agency and exploitation in sex work (and work in general)? The panel seeks to tackle the tension surrounding bodies and sex; power and labor; pleasure and shame.
