العاملون/ات بالجنس التجاري هم/ن من الفئات السكانية الرئيسية الأكثر تضررًا من فيروس نقص المناعة البشرية، بسبب التجريم، وظروف العمل غير المستقرة، والعوائق التي تحول دون الاستخدام المستمر للواقي الذكري، ونقص الوصول إلى الخدمات الصحية، وما إلى اخره.  

يمكن للتشريعات المتعلقة بالعمل بالجنس أن تكون معقدةً للغاية وتتواجد نماذج قانونية مختلفة في البلدان المختلفة، وحتى أحيانًا داخل البلدان نفسها. 

في حين أن فهم القوانين والقواعد المكتوبة أمرٌ مهم، إلا أنه لا يُقدِم صورةً كاملةً لتأثير قوانين العمل بالجنس على حياة العاملين/ات بالجنس. لفهم ذلك، من الضروري فهم كيف يتم تفسير القوانين، فرضها، وتنفيذها على أرض الواقع. 

تشير ’الحماية الاجتماعية‘ إلى الإجراءات المُصَمَّمَة لأجل منع ومعالجة الحالات التي تؤثر سلبا على سلامة الناس، بالإضافة إلى الإجراءات التي تقلل من الضعف وتُسَهِّل الاستقرار الاجتماعي والاقتصادي. كثيرًا ما يتم النظر إلى العاملين/ات بالجنس على أنهم/ن يحتاجون/ن إلى الحماية بسبب الاعتقاد الخاطئ السائد بأن العاملين/ات بالجنس ’ضحايا‘ الاتجار والاستغلال.

NSWP welcomes reports that the online platform OnlyFans has reversed its decision to ban content containing “sexually-explicit conduct” on its website from October 2021, after the backlash the announcement received from its users. The plan would have resulted in a severe loss of income for many sex workers, including those who have moved online to work during the COVID-19 pandemic, and for whom OnlyFans has become a main source of income as the pandemic continues.

NSWP member organisation the English Collective of Prostitutes and Dr Laura Connelly from the University of Salford have published new research that looks at EU Migrant Sex Work in the UK Post-Referendum.  

The research, conducted in 2019, shows that violence, xenophobia and threats of deportation against migrant sex workers from the European Union have risen since the EU Referendum.

Key findings from the research include:

The Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP) strongly supports efforts to decriminalise sex work that have been put forward by the Government of Malta. We reiterate the need for a human rights-based approach to sex work and encourage the Maltese government to continue with the law reform towards the full decriminalisation of sex work.

Produced by NSWP and International Women’s Right Actions Watch Asia Pacific, this series of infographics, compiled in PDF format, aims to raise public awareness about the deeply negative impact of ‘End Demand’ laws on the human rights of sex workers, and to encourage collective action to demand State accountability for violations of sex workers’ rights.

As mulheres profissionais do sexo (mps), usualmente denominadas como prostitutas, têm ocupado um lugar marginal e de destaque ao longo da história da humanidade (Roberts, 1998). Na história da prostituição, o que se vê é um ininterrupto esforço, bem sucedido, de controle e ao mesmo tempo exploração da prostituição, ora por parte do Estado, ora por parte da Igreja, ou ambos (Roberts, 1998). Ao colocá-las à margem e, sempre que possível, segregar as mps através de confinamento em casas, a intenção expressa pelos que assim agiam, era de colaborar para a proteção da família. Até recentemente, a maior parte dos programas de intervenção em saúde tratou as profissionais do sexo como potenciais vetores de doenças, especialmente da Aids, com ameaça à saúde dos homens e à segurança da família (MUSA, 2000). Este enfoque foi se deslocando e, atualmente, pelo menos em alguns programas, ele se volta para os riscos à que estão expostas essas mulheres, entre outros, os ocasionados por aqueles clientes que recusam o uso da camisinha, muitas vezes por meio de atitudes violentas.
