How would you describe the stereotypical prostitute?
Can prostitution be moral?
These are questions that have arisen because a blogger who wrote up her life of prostitution has either been unmasked or unmasked herself. There has been reaction which, at the lower end you could describe as surprise, at the upper end, shock, horror! The levels of reaction stem from the publicity about the woman, who she is and what she does.
Am I unusual in my reaction, I wonder; I am not even mildly phased by any of the revelations. There is nothing really new, except that a new media has been involved in the circulation of the story; blogging. It has broadened out the sum total of the audience who have now had their curiosity sated. Even more media have taken up the story, generating further discussion and awareness of the milieu that has been exposed.
