Abstract

Sex industry is said to be the oldest profession of mankind. Being so, it has been focal point in many films, television media, and in recent times the web media. However, the negative depiction of sex workers by film and television media and lack of investigative reporting by news media, has led to social unacceptability of sex workers. This research article is an attempt to critically analyse the role of media in covering sex industry and suggest changes in approach of media to highlight issues of sex workers.
