We Consent promotes and campaigns on behalf of people who work in the erotic industries to enable them to have the same equal rights, security and acceptance that non erotic industry workers enjoy. We see all sex work as legitimate and of equal value.  We just wish the rest of the world agreed with us...

We will achieve this by direct campaigning in the media, at events and at university debates/lectures. This site also aims to inform visitors of the real facts behind the debates, with the hope that this will make them less polemic and more informed. 

Who we are for

WeConsent.org is first and foremost a networking and support site for people who work in the erotic industries to get to know about each other and to enjoy the events special promotions that this site offers. The vast majority of us in the erotic industries choose this line of work over other options that were available to us when we started and are proud of what we do. We know what it means to consent to work the way we do and we strongly believe that we do not deserve the stigma and negativity aimed at us by many people who dislike our work.  Such work can be an excellent career choice for those who have chosen to work in the erotic industries. We also believe that it is only through our bonding together that we will feel truly confident and proud of our work in public.

Until now, the different areas of sex work, whether it be sex work, pornography, sex industry research or any other type of sex job have been kept separate, which means that we don't know much about each other, even if we share the same pro-sex ideals. It also means the policymakers and media companies can rely on our silence when they make decisions that directly affect our well-being in a negative way. Just imagine, for instance, how many more signatures a petition to government to decriminalise sex work (formerly known as prostitution) would have if the whole of the sex industry and their fans were consulted...

Of course some people who work in the erotic industries don't chose to do so - which is really upsetting - but we believe that the police and policy makers should be able to focus on helping these people out of the industry by not wasting their time on those of us who do consent and enjoy their work.

The erotic industries are not as scary as they are represented in the media, which is why the majority of people in them consent to and continue to work in them. We don't need saving we need support.

This will be a place to discuss anything about your work, why you do it, why you chose to become a sex worker, what you like and dislike about it (any funny stories are especially welcome) As well as how it is represented in media or law.  This site is about celebrating your choice to work in the erotic industries.

One of the aims of this site is to provide an ongoing discussion about the negative representations of sex work in newspapers and on TV. Every time you see something that you disagree with we want you to post it up to the forum to encourage discussion.  This is your space to laugh as well as to rant.  It is also your space to offer ideas for better alternatives on how you want to be shown. Once we have enough members, search engines will send the media and policy makers to our forum to read what we think of their work. They will hear our voices directly and eventually we will become a force to be reckoned with...

If you  don't work in the erotic industries yourself, we would still like you to get involved if you support our work. it's always good to hear from people who appreciate what we do, and how much talent it takes to do it well. So if you like what we do, tell us!  Feel free to join in any of the discussions, we hope you find them as fulfilling as we do.

So come and join us to say ' We like sex so much we do it full-time' and above all, WE CONSENT!

A 'one stop shop' for information regarding the erotic industries

This site aims to be a 'one stop shop' for all information pertaining to the erotic industries. We provide a single source for erotic industry members, journalists, policy developers, researchers  - and just as importantly - the public, to learn about the debates surrounding our work and its effect on the wider culture. One of the main aims was to provide a place where journalists, researchers and policy makers could come to acquire first hand knowledge of the facts surrounding the our work and to read the words of sex workers themselves (which are often difficult to source).

On this site you will find all relevant recent social science, psychology and cultural research on our work, regardless as to whether they are supportive of us. We also offer some information on the main anti-sex campaigners  - 'moral entrepreneurs' - and the flaws in their arguments. You will also find a running commentry on any anti-erotic industries media and news in the UK and eventually, worldwide. This commentry will be debated between site members and the hope is that visitors will be able to hear what sex workers think about how their work is represented first hand.
