The difference between a “hooker” and a “porn star” – an open letter to Lisa Ann

KVA & Associates is a legal practice in Australia providing legal advice to the adult entertainment and sex work industry (Twitter).

Lisa Ann is an American porn star, also an advocate (2010) of the Free Speech Coalition, which opposes the passage and enforcement of obscenity laws and many censorship laws but, ironically, not the “anti-piracy” laws.

In a Youtube videoclip Lisa makes the case that is a clear difference between a “hooker” and a “porn star” and suggests that sex workers who make their living from escorting don’t share the same dignity and health-conscious ethics as those who work in the adult film industry.

She goes on using pejorative terms regarding sex workers in the escorting industry, such as “weird ranch on mattresses” when they have sex in exchange for money (just like adult film actors also do) and catching “staph infections” while doing so, because – she implies –  escorts can’t have the same standards as the adult film industry actors when it comes to performing.

KVA & Associates wrote an open letter to Lisa’s rather-ignorant video rant on their blog, making a reasonable and fair case against such bigoted, offensive and hurtful views.

————————

Dear Lisa Ann,

I just listened to your Webcam You Tube clip. I must say, you look absolutely fabulous. But that is your job, right? To look fabulous, for all of your “masses”. You need to look fabulous because you are not only generating immense wealth for yourself, but you are making huge money for all of those big corporations that you work for. You found the need to “rant” five days ago because “it is like a daily paper cut to [your] eye”.

You felt the need to tell us all the difference between a “hooker” and a “porn star”.

Let me begin from the start.

 

1. Firstly, sex work happens to be legal in many many countries. I hate to break it to you but in my country, Australia, sex work doesn’t happen on some “weird ranch on mattresses” where you catch “staph infections”. It happens in legal brothels, it happens on streets, it happens in hotel rooms, it happens in people’s houses, it happens even in illegal brothels. Last time I checked, being in a brothel, on a street, in a hotel room or in a house doesn’t automatically lead to a “staph infection” but thank you for drawing attention to the fact that ranches in USA should be stayed well clear of due to possible health risks.

2. Apparently, Lisa Ann believes that doing escorting is “not the makings of a porn star”. Incorrect. Factually incorrect. I know MANY porn stars who started off escorting and they turned into fantastic porn stars. I know many porn stars who concurrently work as porn stars and escorts. So, Lisa Ann, you are wrong. Escorts can be porn stars, porn stars can be escorts, sex workers can do the fuck they want in any order. Who are you to dictate the path a sex worker needs to take in order to be successful?

3. I think it so so honourable of you to rate yourself well above anyone who chooses any form of sex work other than porn, because you are providing society with a PRODUCT FOR THE MASSES! People get to see you in clubs, people get your signature, people THANK YOU for turning up to their clubs because OH MY GOODNESS THE MONEY! You know what? Sometimes, sex work isn’t about money. Sometimes, it is. But the point is, the way in which you MAKE your money does not make you any better or worse than the person who is making their money elsewhere, through other means.

4. WOW! You feature dance! I am so glad that you take time out from being a highly paid porn star to hang around with lowly sex workers that dance for cash. It must do wonders for your soul to be able to lower yourself further down the whorearchy chain to see how OTHER PEOPLE survive.

5. You keep your sex life private. Wonderful. That’s your choice. That is not the choice of others. You should respect the rights of fellow sex workers to have a different view on how they conduct themselves sexually. What is your “boundary” may not be the “boundary” of another, but you felt it necessary to promote your “boundary” to 800,000 of your followers as if it is the only way to live your life.

6. You seem to explain yourself out of being just a “lowly sex worker” because you are making money FOR people, and not just yourself. Are you suggesting that sex workers who transact on a personal level with their clients are selfish, have no desire to provide benefit for others? What if that sex worker was using the money from the sex work to feed children. I call that honourable. I call that providing benefit to others. I find that more honourable than being a cash cow for a massive production company.

7. You think that by showing up to a club and bringing in a crowd “elevates girls attitudes”. Are you suggesting than a sex worker who chooses to transact sex to a client have poor self esteem? That they are worthless? That they cannot be “elevated” by spending an enjoyable night with a man or woman who has paid for their company? Be it an hour, three hours, or overnight? Your argument is that you get to interact with really cool people. Hold it, escorts don’t? Help me here.

8. Apparently, being a “prostitute” is a very self centered, non career building way to earn a living. Well, frankly, that attitude stinks, and I find it offensive. I know many escorts who are over the age of 25 and are still actively working in the sex industry. I know women who have bought houses from the income they have earnt. I know woman who have paid for their university education through sex work. How dare you think that (1) sex work has an expiry date; (2) woman are only “prostitutes” for selfish reasons (I reiterate my comment that money from sex work often feeds FAMILIES; and (3) stop using the word “prostitute”!!!!!

9. Annnnnnnd sex workers past the age of 25 are actually looking for a john? Say what? I find this offensive as a basic female. You honestly think women solely exist to find a male to fund them for the rest of their lives? If a sex worker is successful, why would she (unless she found a man who was accepting of her lifestyle) walk away from earning a living IN HER OWN RIGHT to go and be funded by a man? Not once, in my entire career as a lawyer have I ever thought that I would need to find a man in order to survive on this planet past the age of 25. I do not think that this attitude would differ if I were a sex worker.

10. You then proceed to tell me that had I had taken YOUR PATH, I could have gone on and changed the world. Lisa, you are not discovering the cure for cancer. You are sucking cock. You are no better or worse than any other woman who is transacting sex, whether it is on camera or in the privacy of a hotel room, brothel or home.

    Estimada Lisa Ann.

    Mi lugar de residencia esta en Europa. Solo decir que estoy totalmente en desacuerdo con du vision entre la pornstar y la meretriz.
    Sintiendolo mucho la única diferencia entre digamos ambas profesiones es el dinero que cobran por hechar un polvo y la diferencia entre clientes.
    Por otro lado en cuanto a las enfermedades tienen las pornstars más posibilidades de contraerlas que una denominada hetaira ya que ella en un 99% usan protección.
    Así que hablando claro y mal quieran o no Todas son PUTAS. Por tanto ya puede vuecencia rasgarse las vestidura.Eso no quiere decir que este en contra de esa gloriosa profesión que por cierto es la más antigua del mundo.

    Attentamente.
