Ex-dominatrix Consults Sex Workers before Exposing Lawmakers’

Former dominatrix, Terri-Jean Bedford, has addressed an open letter to all sex workers across the country to take their opinion over whether she should reveal the names of politicians she knows to be employing sex workers or not. Bedford’s letter presents numerous questions regarding possible consequences of naming names.

In her email, Bedford has inquired that “would you and your members and colleagues prefer me to back off exposing clients altogether, and if so why?” explaining that “I seek your help in answering these questions.” Bedford is credited for leading the legal battle against initial version of Canada’s prostitution laws and now she is resisting the renewed law the Conservative government is bringing in to make it illegal to buy sex. At a previous Senate hearing, she allegedly mentioned that “if this law passes I’m going to make you guys forget about Mike Duffy, because I’ve got more information and more proof on politicians in this country than you can shake a stick at, I promise.”

Bedford and her supporters are allegedly gathering evidence and consulting advisers to try to figure out the implications of doing what she threatened to do. Bedford’s letter to groups across Canada is part of the process, as she says that “One reason for exposing some clients is to show how unfair the law is when sex workers can report clients to the police and only the client is charged,” adding that “this means, it would seem, that blackmail and entrapment have largely been legalized.”
