A New Zealand sex worker will receive a six-figure payout after filing a sexual harassment case against a business owner. The sum is part of a settlement to compensate the woman for "emotional harm and lost earnings", said the human rights body that represented her. The case served as a reminder that all workers have the right to freedom from sexual harassment at work, it added. But the settlement announced on Monday was viewed as an important milestone for sex workers' rights. Healy was at the forefront of a long campaign to decriminalise sex work in New Zealand, arguing that it would make the profession safer.
How did Puck so masterfully manage these affairs of the heart? Emory scientists have an answer.

Of course it would be cruel to deprive them of it. Sex becomes, at best, a currency that women use to get something they want — I have friends who offer sex in exchange for different things they want — and, at worst, an obligation, a task to check off of a to-do list, a leave-me-the-hell-alone pass to get them through the next six or seven days. Sex has become a zero-sum game — a situation in which one person gains while the other loses. An argument could be made that trading sexual favors for house chores is an arrangement in which both parties win: One gets a cleaner house; the other gets sex. It means one partner is taking while the other is giving.
