Fashionable talk about “sex work” avoids basic questions about sex/gender justice: Is it possible to imagine any society achieving a meaningful level of justice if people from one sex/gender class could be routinely bought and sold for sexual services by people from another sex/gender class? Is justice possible when the most intimate spaces of the bodies of people in one group can be purchased by people in another group? Can anyone, men or women, live a rich and meaningful life in such a society? Robert Jensen argues that a radical feminist critique of patriarchy is the best path for helping men recognize that the sexual-exploitation industries are not only incompatible with justice but also with their own humanity and the possibility of a fulfilling life.
