    I really enjoyed this video. As part of my MPH coursework, I recently took a class on sex work and it was absolutely fascinating to me to see how many positive outcomes arise from a legalised (or decriminalised) sex work framework. In Victoria, Australia (where sex work is legalised), rates of STIs are significantly lower among sex workers than in the general population, due to mandatory safe sex practices and regular STI testing. Police officers in Melbourne are given training to de-stigmatise the industry. There is still stigma attached to being a sex worker, but the overall working conditions are generally far superior to those in an illegal framework. Prohibition of sex work only creates more harm toward the women and men in the industry. Feminists should be working to reduce harm, not dictate morality.
