Prostitutes of New York
PO Box 174
PONY is a support and advocacy group for all people in the sex industry.
We welcome all current or former sex workers, including male, female or
TS/TV prostitutes, erotic dancers, nude models, x-rated actors, peep
show performers, phone sex workers, S&M/B&D professionals, strippers,
madams, and so on.
PONY advocates the decriminalization of prostitution and calls for an
end to illegal police activity -- such as street sweeps -- in the
enforcement of existing laws.
PONY provides legal and health referrals to sex workers. Unfortunately,
we are unable to provide free legal services. However, our members share
information about competent, trustworthy and ethical lawyers who
understand the special concerns of sex workers. PONY also encourages
members to recommend doctors, therapists and other professionals who
provide quality service to sex workers.
PONY works to bring all people from different areas of the sex industry
together. We encourage all people who sell sex or profit from sex to
learn about the diversity of their industry, to promote professional
standards within their sector, and to learn more about the history of
the world's oldest profession (and its allied industries).
PONY encourages you to share your views -- and voice your differences --
on all issues and topics with other sex workers.
PONY (& Friends) is a broader organization for anyone who supports the
rights of sex workers. We welcome the support of johns, feminists
and others who care about legal change. Please remember that PONY is
NOT an employment service or a referral service for prostitutes or their
customers. Thank you.
