Hey, it’s the last episode of Season 1 of Isn’t That Spatial! Awwwwww! Thanks for sticking with me through this first season – I hope it was good for you, because it was really fun for me.
On this episode, we’re looking at the spatial component of the sex work industry, that “oldest profession in the world”. First, we touch on zoning of the sex-related businesses in general. Then, we dive into the history of the treatment of sex work (still known as “prostitution” to many) and its geography in public and private realms. Of course, we’ll also talk about Red Light Districts and sex work tourism.
How we’ve treated sex work over the centuries has much to do with the “where and why there” and the difference between empowered spaces for sex workers and oppressive ones.
This is such a good one! Plus, new music from Daniel Kirschenbaum!
See you next season, with new topics, new segments, new music, and same me!
