This saying is attributed to Oscar Wilde (one of the favorite authors in my youth) in the movie Simone. I’m unsure he actually said that. In the context of his day and age when the theater was for the rich, opium dens were of fashion and women suffered from sex depravation I can maybe see that feeling like the case. (See blog entry about hysteria here – at very bottom)
I don’t understand how sex work is illegal. Isn’t it supposedly the oldest trade to exist? No culture or age seems to be immune to it so who the fuck are we kidding by making it illegal? All that does, much like abortions, is make it an underground and far more dangerous (for everyone involved) transaction.
I’m neither here nor there. I have no skin in the game, but it seems idiotic to me. I don’t get why this world is so illogical. I really don’t.
