How COVID-19 Changed the Sex Work Industry
July 14, 2021 by Justin Lehmiller
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted people’s sex lives in a number of ways, which I’ve written about extensively on the blog (see here for a video recap of some of the key findings). But how has it impacted the sex work industry?
In the video below, produced by ABC News and FiveThirtyEight, one of the highest paid sex workers in the United States (Alice Little) is interviewed about how the pandemic changed her business. Other current and former workers are also interviewed, and they share the challenges of making a living in this industry over the last year and a half and the ways they had to adapt in order to survive.
Check it out for an inside look at sex work during a global pandemic.
