Sex Work

Sex work is an exchange of sexual services, performances, or products for material compensation, including direct and indirect sexual stimulation.

Sex work is often confused with human/sex trafficking. While they are similar, there are differences--the main one is that sex work is voluntary, while trafficking is not.
