Your online resource for information on sex work and sex workers around the world


********PLEASE DONATE TO ISWFACE*********
We are a 501 (c) 3 Non Profit Organization
Without your much needed financial contributions, we cannot continue to maintain this organization. Your donation is tax deductible!



DATE OF LAST REVISION: July 18, 2013
We apologize for the lengthy delay in updating this site. The software we used to create and maintain it is on a computer that has been in need of repair since last year. The computer has now been repaired and we hope to update the entire site in the coming months. Meanwhile, please visit our other website for date, research, stats and articles: Policeprostitutionandpolitics.com

Most recently posted is the much researched document which refutes all the specious arguments used by prostitution abolitionists, victim pimps and others, who continue to define all sex work as 'sex trafficking' and falsely claim that 'the average age of entry into prostitution is 12 or 13 or 14...'

THE TRUTH ABOUT COPS, PROSTITUTES, SEX TRAFFICKING AND CHILD SEXUAL EXPLOITATION

If you are under 18 and doing your school project on the subject of sex work, please get permission from your parents or teacher before reviewing any articles or artwork on this site which may not be appropriate for you.

"PROHIBITIONS- PROSTITUTION"
From the John Stossel Show (Fox Business News March 4, 2010)
(Thanks, John, for being so rational and more interested in individual liberty than the government enforcement of other people's moral values on those of us who do not subscribe to those values)


Watch our VH1 Video on YouTube: "What is ISWFACE?"

One of our 'mini movies- "Thank You Melissa Farley"
Our undying gratitude for being 'rescued' .... yeah, right!!!

Welcome to the website of ISWFACE (pronounced 'ice face') -the International Sex Worker Foundation for Art, Culture and Education.

Our organization is run by sex workers* [current and retired] primarily for sex workers,* but it is also for anyone who wants to learn more about us, including students, researchers, academics, the media, law enforcement agencies, policy makers and of course, art lovers......


FYI: Please understand that we are all volunteers at ISWFACE (as are most all those who contribute their time to sex worker rights organizations) and we do not always have the time or resources to keep this website current. Unlike the virulently anti- prostitution organizations, we do not get the funding with which to afford to pay anyone for their time. We invite you to check out what organizations like Polaris Project, SHARED HOPE INTERNATIONAL, Prostitution Research Foundation (Melissa Farley's group) and others like them receive in donations and government grants each year (and also what ISWFACE receives annually) by going to http://www.melissadata.com/lookups/np.asp --- If sex worker rights organizations received just half the funding that the prohibitionist organizations generate- we might be able to make more of a difference. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to ISWFACE or any of our affiliate- sex worker positive- organizations so that we can keep fighting back against the lies, hysteria and hype that the media so often presents as the ONLY side of the issue. Sex workers are all opposed to 'sex trafficking' and any other form of human trafficking- and who better than us to identify and report instances of underage prostitution, forced prostitution and abusive 'pimps' and traffickers? As long as we are considered 'criminals' in the eyes of the law, we cannot go to the police for fear of being arrested or charged with a crime. Please help us change that, won't you?
