Margaret Cho recently came out and said she was a sex worker in her past, before she was a comedy star who is notably open about her kinky affinities and fun sounding sex life. She came out on Twitter and outed herself with a fairly simple tweet that read “Sex work is simply work. For me it was honest work. I was a sex worker…It was hard but well paid. There’s no shame in it.” This Tweet caused quite a ruckus! There were lots of supporters – including many in the porn industry, and of course, lots of people who weren’t so into her statement.
But why would Margaret make such a statement? Because she wants to see conditions improve for escorts and pro dommes in the US.“It’s hard work that’s not protected by law enforcement or unions. It’s unfair. We have the right to our bodies +work.” Cho tweeted after her initial bomb drop. Margaret Cho has the attitude towards sex work that most escorts, phone sex operators and pornstars have. It’s a really fun job that not only pays well but also provides a valuable service to society. Hence why you will find forms of sex work in almost any culture and people often refer to it as the oldest profession.
