Great article Ravi but I was hoping for more stories of the conditions of the sex workers. Maybe these haven’t been documented or have been lost to history. It’s almost certain that AIDS and a plethora of STDs were rampant in ancient Rome as there was no protection never mind healthcare for these workers like there is today. At least sex workers today do have a choice but the sex workers of the past were slaves without rights or choices.
