swerf and red fash.

The organisation they promote charge 600€ for a workshop + whatever the logistics cost them and their website isn't even secure. They are also linked with the moderate (liberal conservative) party and their divisions on facebook.

I'm going to put up a little memorial today for the people in my area. Thanks for the heads up, I had not heard of this organization. I think Western USA residents may want to contact them, it might be possible to get involved if you are interested.

We have a salary gap of more than 30%, we work for free as of October 31, but it seems that it does not matter, we have data that reflects it, but we do not reveal ourselves. Now, if we decide to practice prostitution there, everyone gets upset, the real witch-hunt begins, the inquisition is reborn with more force, shouts: “abolition, abolition, they don't know what they are doing, we must save them from their madness, they are aligned with the patriarchy, with the pimps, with the lobbies of the sex industry, with the prostitutes, they are raped, they are guilty of fueling sexist violence, they are accomplices of La Manada ... ”We apologize for porn, we force our society to interfere on the internet to receive sex education, since neither at school nor at home is it talked about because it is taboo ...

This is a "Libertarian" Union for the Sex Workers. Libertarian in the original sense, like Anarchist and Alikes.

"The collective Putas Libertarias de Barcelona has distanced itself from the prevailing punitive climate by highlighting the need to repeal the Civility Ordinance and denounce the exclusion to which the Barcelona brand condemns the Catalan capital. They insist that sex workers share a large part of the neighborhood demands that plague the neighborhood, are committed to coexistence and point to the new legal framework as a promoter of intolerance, persecution and criminalization of public space.

Pornography is readily available for free, however having a relationship with an individual sex worker(s) is not as easy or safe to do during the pandemic. Additionally, there is a special quality to having an online connection with someone doing sex work, as opposed to other ways of interacting with sex workers. This makes having an online platform where there is a neutral party, quite helpful.

While it is distinct, it is a similar concept to the dark net marketplaces such as Empire and others past and present. It is a theoretically neutral and safe space for people to engage more safely in behaviors that can benefit from this harm reduction.

I'd imagine ease of use and the classic "third party trust factor" wherein people feel more comfortable trusting a third party to mediate transactions that to do stuff person to person over and over again.

This is so disingenuous (on the part of the platform), some famous person exploits the platform, so they penalize all people who use the site from making higher incomes when they work for it? It isn't often sites cap their own income, and i'm sure they get some cut of payments to the workers, so this is quite surprising that they would limit their own income. Am I missing something here?

Yup. This is simultaneously the actually the ride-share vs taxis and social media vs tv "disruption" of porn. It will create a few big winners, but a lot of people will just make a few bucks and realize the workload of running a business is not what they wanted. It's also going to continue to really bleed into other forms of social media, which might be a positive for sex work legalization as it becomes more and more visible.

Forgot to mention quality video. Good work, whomever did it.
