I just was randomly googling variations of “women searching escorts” and discovered that Slixa.com has a section entitled “lesbian escorts”. Although I’m sure many of these women aren’t strictly lesbian, it’s fabulous to see another site gearing itself towards women who are potentially or actively looking for a paid erotic experience! And there are many of them!
Oh and this is what they say about their site… I like it!
The Slixa Revolution
Slixa is radically different from other adult entertainer directory style sites. Find what you’re looking for quickly and easily with no outside ads that diminish the REAL sexy women on the site. You’ll find large photos you can actually see and navigation that just plain makes sense. We never try to upsell you – free is free!
Slixa is classy, sophisticated, easy to use, and completely free. We think it’s revolutionary, and long overdue.
(it’s a little pop-anthropology)
When this campaign began I knew resolutely that I would use the word ‘Cunt’. It wasn’t so much a decision but a feeling like I had no choice. There simply wasn’t any other word that felt ‘right’. I’ve always liked the word ‘Cunt’ – coming from Ireland, we say it a lot more often that it’s said in the UK. When I moved here, I began to notice the shocked reaction that I got when I casually said ‘Cunt’ . It was mainly from women.
Invisibility and Visibility of Queer Women and Lesbians In the Sex Work Industry Between 1970 and 1990
by leigh vandebogart
This paper focuses on the ways in which lesbians and queer women in the sex work industry were stigmatized in society and the struggle to gain visibility in a society that rendered them invisible. There has been a largely invisible history of lesbians and queer women involved in sex work. The era between 1970 and 1990 was laden with the second wave of feminism, sexual consciousness and sexual revolution, three factors still affecting society. I argue that the existence of lesbian and queer women as sex workers during this time was a difficult one. Lesbians and queer women involved in sex work were marginalized, faced with stigmas and issues of visibility and invisibility, both within and outside of queer and lesbian communities. Through focusing on narratives of queer women and lesbian sex workers, I include the ways in which lesbians and queer women within the sex work industry were oppressed and marginalized within their own communities. I also show not all communities were so oppressive, and some of the women involved in sex work found comfort and solidarity within the queer community.

When I worked in women’s magazines, stories about lesbians or bi-curiosity were guaranteed to boost sales. And that was back in the 90s and naughties. So it’s kind of surprising to see it’s taken this long for someone to turn that curiosity into money.
A new service has recently launched for women to pay to sleep with other women. To fulfil a fantasy, scratch an itch, push a boundary, indulge a whim.

Last year, New York City health workers gave out 37.2 million condoms. That works out to an average of 70 condoms every minute of the year. The city got into mass-scale condom distribution to help prevent the spread of debilitating and deadly diseases.
On the other hand, the condoms are also used to mark people for arrest on prostitution charges.
“Last Rescue in Siam” is the first film ever made by sex workers in Thailand. It is a short black and white movie inspired by the tradition of the old silent movies.The film accompanies the Empower research report “Hit & Run” available on facebook, and can be found on the website www.empowerfoundation.org.
