It’s Sexual Violence Myth Monday! Share your myths with #SVMythMonday.

Today’s MYTH: Men need sex therefore prostitution must exist.

FACT: The sex of prostitution is not “sex” for women in it. Most men who use women in prostitution have other sexual partners.

No one needs sex like they need food, water, or air, and no one has the right to purchase access to someone else’s body. Buying women and children in prostitution is less about sexual gratification and more about power gratification. 85% of US johns have regular sexual partners, and 60% are married.
