34 – Sex Work and the Law

Do you know the laws about sex work? Do you know the difference between the “Nordic” model, decriminalization, and legalization of sex work? What about the difference between sex work and sex trafficking? When talking to my partner Jeremy, it dawned on me that not everyone follows sex work laws as closely as I do, so we thought we should make an episode about Canadian sex work laws through the ages. We cover sex work laws from the 1700s up to the current confusing laws that really need to be fixed.


Sex work! What do we know? Do we know things? Let’s find out!


Hosted by Dr. Lisa Dawn Hamilton, psychology professor and sex educator.
