LOS ANGELES — Sex worker and advocate for the legalization of brothels, Bethany St. James, grabbed the cover of the culture section of the Huffington Post yesterday creating a buzz that drew more than 110 comments, 120 Tweets and 500 Facebook shares.

In her article “Sexuality vs. Sensuality: The Steady Decline of Affection in America,” St. James divulges that because she is a legal prostitute and courtesan, she can make a case for the lack of affection in American relationships.

“In my opinion, modern Americans have failed miserably when it comes to differentiating between the words "sex" and "sensuality," she wrote.

“Our view of what is ‘sexy’ has become so askew that many women and men don't even know what their own desires are anymore. With most contemporary portrayals of sexuality being outright promiscuity and tactless drunken debauchery, it's not surprising that women and men have lost sight of the joys and need for sensuality."

St. James, who is also a personal and sexual empowerment coach maintained that between this severely misguided view of human sexuality and the pressures of our everyday lives, the sex lives of most Americans have been stunted.

“Those involved in relationships, and even those who are battling through the ‘dating scene,’ are faced with the pressures to conform to what society is telling us sex should be,” she said.

St. James can be followed on Twitter.
