In a symposium on "Sex for Sale," it seems natural and appropriate to examine the relationship between "sex," on the one hand, and "work," on the other. After all, "work" is perhaps the word most frequently used to refer to the sale of human labor and services in market-oriented societies. So it is fitting that Dr. Farley's paper begins our inquiry today by asking: Is it acceptable to refer to prostitution as "labor," "sex work," or "a job"? It turns out that the panelists have different answers to this question.
