Belle de Jour & Sex Work


Ever since reading its review online, I already want to read it, often stories of sex workers seemed very interesting based on their moral positions in society.

Within the novel, Belle de Jour went through many walks of life such as dealing with relationship troubles and keeping up with family, her life was hardly different – the only difference was she was a sex worker. It also shown how working as escort can be lonely, yet kind of safe as they are working inside somewhere, unlike street sex workers who have to physically advertise themselves and therefore taking the danger. Thanks to this book, it inspired my dissertation theme – on what constituted the difference between street sex workers & indoor sex workers, therefore being treated differently in policies.
