Teen Magazine Tells Teen Readers 'Sex Work Is Real Work'


Teen Vogue is a magazine for teenagers.

Whether you have a 13-year-old daughter or a 17-year-old granddaughter, Teen Vogue is coming for them.

And the publication isn’t trying to teach them responsibility and integrity.

No, Teen Vogue is teaching leftist life lessons, such as where to find a comedy routine that makes abortion jokes or how to get an abortion without telling your parents.

And in the latest, the disturbing minds at Teen Vogue are telling our precious princesses that “sex work is real work.”

In Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng’s recent article, Teen Vogue shared life lessons with its readers — lessons such as “Not all sex workers engage in penetrative sex.” Thanks for the tip, doctor.

She goes on to explain that sex work includes such activity as “companionship, intimacy, nonsexual role playing, dancing, escorting, and stripping.”

Then, if your daughter is still reading, she will see that “Many workers take on multiple roles with their clients, and some may get more physical while other interactions that may have started off as sexual could evolve into emotional and psychological bonding.”

Surely, the good doctor isn’t telling our children that they should see paid sexual services as legitimate forms of employment?

Do you think Teen Vogue is misleading teenage girls?

Oh, yes — she certainly is. “The idea of purchasing intimacy and paying for the services can be affirming for many people who need human connection, friendship, and emotional support,” Mofokeng wrote. “Some people may have fantasies and kink preferences that they are able to fulfill with the services of a sex worker.”

She then tries to compare her work as a doctor who helps people with physical problems related to sexual performance as the same as being the same as a prostitute. “Isn’t this basically sex work?” Mofokeng said when comparing her professional work to those who sell kinky experiences by the hour.

She then suggests to the teens reading her article that the internet makes dabbling in sex-for-hire schemes “safer for women” as opposed to working on the streets, where “police harassment remains a concern.”

Mofokeng claimed her purpose for writing this nonsense is to remove the stigma and to make it more protected for those who are in sex work and for those they’re supporting.

She didn’t write a single thing about … I don’t know … finding a support system to help young ladies not be in sex work.

It’s one thing to talk about the pros and cons of legalized prostitution, but it’s quite another to make that argument to children.

There are things I don’t want 13-year-old girls to be thinking about. But not one of those things is whether they should have a future as a sex worker.
