Sex work and the disabled

Very interesting Woman's Hour interview with Rachel Wotton, "an Australian sex worker, whose clients include people with disabilities. She is the subject of a documentary 'Scarlet Road' which is being screened at the Sheffield Documentary Festival this week. Rachel says it's often the parents of the client who initiate contact with her, on behalf of their adult child. … Rachel campaigns for the rights of people with disabilities and speaks at conferences on the subject all over the world."

It's a very moving 5/10 minute interview on this prog, go listen. Very morally challenging for any more conservative types who are against legalising prostitution.
