Hi Rory,

There are countries where it is illegal [1]. There are also countries 
where alcohol is illegal [2] (/Bar, Beer Garden, Pub/, etc. tags).

In both cases it is possible to customize JOSM presets on your computer 
[3], especially on an ultra-book which one carries across borders.

I do it very simply (and probably incorrectly). I save the XML file of 
default presets [4] on my computer, remove corresponding blocks from 
this XML file, and point to this updated by me XML file in JOSM's 
/Presets Preferences/. Done. Both icons and text lines disappear from 
menus. It takes less than a minute.

SOME ("sex positive") think it should be legal / just as socially accepted as any job, also for feminist reasons. To say all feminist are opposed to sex work is misleading.
