Room for rent is based on the belief that in order to challenge exploitation within this work force we shouldn’t victimize and ostracize sex workers, or close down their working spaces, but recognize sex work as work and listen to their opinions when creating policies that affect them. Full service sex workers working at window brothels are self-employed. They rent spaces from operators, make their own schedules, bring their own tools and keep track of their own administration.

In ‘Room for rent’ she talks about some of the skills she used while working, and about the stigma sex workers face.
