A sex worker is a person who earns money by providing sexual services. The term was coined by American prostitute-activist Carol Leigh (also known as "Scarlot Harlot") in the 1970s as a political term. It is sometimes used as a synonym or euphemism for prostitution, but most scholars define "sex workers" to include individuals who perform sexual or sexually oriented activities in the sex industry, such as strippers, erotic massage therapists, rubberists, pornography actors and actresses, live sex shows, webcam shows, and phone sex operators(Weitzer 2000).
