A march for sex worker rights in London, 2011.

Some of the stigma has come off of getting paid for sex, but not all.  Everyone knows who Stormy Daniels is, but not everyone reserves judgment on her work as an actor in adult films. 

There are some very basic questions for and about people who work in the field: what are their rights? 

That is the domain of the ESPLER Project (Erotic Service Provider Legal, Educational and Research).  Maxine Doogan of the project visits to talk about the issues that face sex workers.
