I remember watching some documentary about "Sugar Babies" in which some woman described disliking it. With prostitution, there's a single transaction. Sugar Babies said they had to be ready at any and all times to go anywhere. They had to keep up their bodies, their grooming and their wardrobes. The women said it was exhausting, with no clear physical boundaries.

I don't object to sex work, but I object to unmonitored sex work without sufficient protections for lower-status individual.
