Sex Talks with the Tree: What happens in Vegas

I recently met a man at an airport bar who told me that he did not believe in the exchange of money for “sacred goods.” One sacred good, he said, was sex and our bodies. At first, I didn’t think much of it, as he was a random man at the very classy Ruby Tuesday’s bar, but he got me thinking. As a self-proclaimed feminist, I have always tried to be a proponent of the positive benefits and female empowerment that can accompany exotic dancing or prostitution.
