My opinion is that both sides have a blinkered view of each other.
I believe trafficking/coercion is still a genuine problem in this country, more than others might like to think. I also firmly believe there is a legitimate and relatively safe way to work in this industry as is practiced by many independent escorts on this site.
As a client I also believe it is my right to be free to pay for sex and companionship with a woman who is working as a sex worker of her own free will.
That is where I stand and I have some sympathy with both sides of this debate.
Is there any chance that representatives of both TORL and TOBL could meet and talk? It may soften each others opinion on the other. Even if this happened to a small degree, I believe it would benefit the debate greatly.
