The Whore Singularity at Woodhull
 
Hey Patrons!

I worked extra hard on my slideshow for my presentation on August 5th at the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summitt. Then I realized I could export it as a PDF and share it with you all! So here's the summary! Click the above link to download the PDF, and let me know what you think about my wild ideas on whorephobia, slut-shaming, naked selfies, Kimye, the Fappening, the MyRedBook and Rentboy raids, the Whorearchy, Shop Jeen memes, and Vanessa Williams.

When sexually-themed online media business owners can be indicted for prostitution, when a minor can be prosecuted for “exploiting” naked images of himself, everyone’s freedom of sexual expression is under attack. Whether you share naked pictures with your partner, post online escort ads, or masturbate on a webcam, your digital sexual imagery can and will be weaponized against you through harassment, public shaming, or by the law. As more and more people become naked on the internet (professional and amateur, consensually and non-consensually), persistent whore and slut stigma affects everyone.

This workshop from two of the most provocative voices in sex work journalism will address important subjects of digital privacy, modern intimacy, and the way everyone is affected by sex worker stigma.

We will politicize current events such as the Rentboy and MyRedBook raids, several cases of teenagers caught sexting, the “Fappening,” and more.

In this workshop, you will learn  concrete risk-aware assessment tools for digital privacy, how to combat whore stigma and slut shaming in your work and personal life, and why you should (and how you can) support the decriminalization of sex work.
