This is part 3 of a 3 part interview with sex worker and advocate Jinx Lierre about representation of sex workers on The Deuce. In this episode we discuss why watching the show was a tough decision for Jinx, the unrecognized benefits that sex workers bring to society, and the power of the language we use to talk about sex workers.

Jinx Lierre Interview Part 1 – The Deuce Rethread

In this episode Mike interviews sex worker and advocate Jinx Lierre about the representation of sex workers on The Deuce. But they talk about a lot more than just the show. In part one of a three part interview, they get into social stigmas that inevitably lead to violence, and why Jinx would rather the show not exist than see it perpetuate the dehumanization of sex workers.
