Paying for sex?engaging in the oldest profession?-is everywhere, even in your church. The factors leading individuals into sex work are as varied as hair colors, yet sex workers are viewed as powerless individuals who must be rescued.

I Heart Sex Workers examines the forces leading individuals into prostitution, whether through coercion, choice, or circumstance.
