Sex Work and Hurricanes
For the second episode of Storm Stories, we’re diving deep into the transactional sex industry during and after hurricanes. How does the market for transactional sex change when natural disasters hit, and how do sex workers deal with these changes? We talk to Katie, who tells us about the days leading up to and following Hurricane Florence, and Rebecca, executive director of the nonprofit Five14 Revolution.
