Annie Sprinkle, PhD, sexologist and former prostitute, wrote in "40 Reasons Why Whores Are My Heroes" on her website (accessed Jan. 24, 2007):

“Whores endure in the face of fierce prejudice… Whores help people explore their sexual desires… Whores explore their own sexual desires… Whores are not afraid of sex… Whores are rebelling against the absurd, patriarchal, sex-negative laws against their profession and are fighting for the legal right to receive financial compensation for their valuable work.”
