Great piece. Discussions of the ethics of sex work are more often about the fetishized female prostitute, who is being envied and attacked.

If Gloria Steinem can say housewives are "part time prostitutes" then what is the working husband? He's as manipulated a figure. It's all sex work. A man sells his male boss a fantasy of a son. He sells his parents an illusion of themselves perpetuating into the future. Constantly adjusting to the needs of the fantasist.
