Sex Work in Ancient Rome

REVISED AGAIN …DO NOT WATCH THIS!!!  …IT’S PAINFUL.

Despite the dumbed down consumer tv nature,  irritating sensationalism and at times judgemental narrative in this 2-part series, there are some very interesting responses from academics, inlcuding those of Professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill MA, DPhil, OBE, FBA. It also brings together a wide range of avenues for investigation, especially with regard to the laws and society status of prostitutes  (see 1. Prostitution in Pompeii part 3 of 5)

…Need to look at parallels with caste system in India.
