We have never before allowed in any recording equipment at any of our meetings. The reason is obvious - confidentiality is the key to our program's safety. If people couldn't trust that we would protect their identities they wouldn't come forward. But the members at this meeting said it was okay to be recorded because we've just been getting not only so many questions - but also so many misconceptions about us. Another reason why we never released a recording before is because each meeting and each group is so different. There's not two groups nor ever two meetings the same. We have large meetings held in churches, coffee houses, parks, treatment centers, clinics, and conference rooms as well as jails and crisis centers. There are large and small meetings. Some people prefer to be more private so they have "coffee" meetings where two or more just get together at a coffee shop. Others are either so remote or they are so careful about who sees their face - they prefer to stick with our "phone" meetings which are held at regular times weekly where members call in from all over the world. Sometimes if the car breaks down or the weather is bad they come to the phone meetings. This way they can call in even if they're at a payphone or a motel. Other meetings are done "one on one" by telephone, mail or in person. Some meetings even have more "concentrations" of groups - such as our West Hollywood meeting that tends to be mostly men or the jail meeting in Chicago for just transgenders. Meetings can be light and funny or dark and deep. But whatever the meetings are - they're part of our recovery program where the "therapeutic value of one helping is without parallel". This is just a window into our program where "empathy" is a tool for healing.

Hear how Brenda's recovery through Sex Workers Anonymous using a "safe house" provided to her by a now defunct "Genesis House", a SWA Recovery Guide, the Steps, and the whole recovery process given her - led her to her own passion where she now works with ALL trafficking victims with her own SWA meetings, and the program she co-founded, Dreamcatchers - whether the members be male, female, gay, bi, transgender, African American, Latina - to Brenda a victim is a victim and not a gender or a color.
I've seen Brenda do outreach work in young girls "in trouble" on shows like Maury Povich - where those girls were running back to their momma's in tears! No lip service either - her interventions work!
Her resume is too long to list here. She's gone from being a child victim of sex trafficking - to now being an educator, outreach worker, mentor, sponsor, speaker, motivator, founder, leader, and just a work of inspiration for others about how freedom can be found for anyone as a promise of this program. While most other members of SWA stay "anonymous" and some with good reason, Brenda is one of the rare individuals who can be totally open about her past as well as her involvement in Sex Workers Anonymous because she has totally dedicated her life to doing this work.
If you'd like to hear more about how Sex Workers Anonymous can help not just you - but possibly even generations of survivors to come after you as well as how this program "works" - then give this show a listen! Hear how SWA produces not only recovery in our membership - but members who devote their lives to now helping others without hesitation.
If you'd like to reach Brenda after the show - you can find her at http://thedreamcatcherfoundation.org/staff/brenda-myers-powell/

Talia was sexually abused from the crib on. No one listened or intervened. Even her step-father sexually abused her. Cutting herself to find relief from the internal pain (cutting takes the pain from the inside to the outside and is not a form of suicide but actually an attempt to find release from emotional pain), she soon developed other self-destructive behaviors. Starting out as a regular "model" she soon found herself being eased into the world of hard-core . From hard-core in magazines such as "Hustler" she found she couldn't make ends meet with an erratic shoot paycheck. Addicts tend to seek out other addicts so she found herself buried in debt because of her husband's gambling addiction. He left but left her with the bills. Soon Tara began to see that it was really just one excuse after the other to justify returning to the sex industry. Once the denial was stripped away - then what? She sought help in Sex Workers Anonymous where today she's now working at a "regular" job and just got into graduate school. Tara's hope is to finish school and work with other troubled kids like herself.

Tonight's special guest is Jody Williams from Las Vegas a survivor of child abuse, rape, domestic violence, and sex trafficking. She has been in recovery from drug addiction and the sex industry as well as mental illness since 1985. In 1987, Jody founded Sex Workers Anonymous - the first program of it's kind to help men and women across this country to exit the sex industry and/or find recovery after having left it. Their hotline has answered over 500,000 calls over the years. What started out as a small meeting in a coffee shop soon exploded to now have meeting across the USA, as well as in five other countries now. Spending five years interviewing 1,000's of recovering prostitutes and sex workers, Jody published the Recovery Guide. This is the her group's version of what is the Big Book in Alcoholics Anonymous. For decades Jody has been fighting back the legal brothels from expanding outside of their small county into both California and Nevada successfully. She put together the first ever press conference about trafficking as it exists within the legal brothels of Nevada in 2008 where she was met with violent retaliation. Many courts are using this program today as part of their probation and alternative sentencing programs, while there are local meeting in many cities and phone meetings for those who wish to remain truly "anonymous" or for those who can't travel. The SWA hotline is the only one answered by a survivor that's not connected with law enforcement. Jody has just come out with an e-book for parents on "What to do if you suspect your child is involved in prostitution" based on years of getting the same call over and over again.
SEX is making the world go crazy because we don't talk about what it really is. Most people are not familiar with their energetic bodies which is what really runs the show in our lives. We are sexual beings the energy of creation is sexual energy, that is what we are. It is time we start to know this information about how we function. We create our lives through what we vibrate. We are constant cocreators of our experience. Our physical bodies are reacting to our emotions Energy in Motion if you can master that, you can master your vibration master your LIFE. Every Friday I talk about metaphysical science, Orgone Energy Batteries, Functional Healing Art, Mediation, Nature and anything else that holds sexual vibrating energy. I work 1 on 1 with clients and also offer Seminars, Workshops & Retreats. for mor information about me please visit Sex Energy Goddess13 the last half hour of this show continues on my video broadcast at ViM3DRadio.com

Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.
This is simply the beta testing of what is to come of a sexy, dangerous, but probably hastily thought idea. Nonetheless, I will be joined, hopefully, by a few ladies who call in and help me test the awesome nature of what abilities and functions will be here for us to use for education, discussion, humor but usually at the cost of others, and promoting awesome, hard working ladies online.
This is geared towards kinksters, fetishists, and people who can properly diddle as well as value intelligence and continuing to learn more about their craft.
Again, beta testing. There could be a chance I talk to myself. This could be a disaster. But...I'm doing it to give all us professional perverts a voice because obviously more attention is needed.
WARNING: This is going to be full of sarcasm, things that might be offensive, and sexy.
We take a look at human trafficking right here in Michigan.

Practical experience shows that nothing will so much insure immunity from drinking as intensive work with other alcoholics. It works when other activities fail.
But you can't give away something you don't have
Until we have spoken with complete candor with someone and they have done the same with us, we still didn’t belong, Step Five was the answer it was the beginning of a true kin ship between God and Man. Not only are we to SPEAK a Fifth Step, we are also to HEAR a Fifth Step, who hears a Fifth Step? In most instances a sponsor, so until you have heard a Fifth you still did not belong, you were circling the field waiting to run out of spiritual gasoline, and then its another crash and burn Vern.
The problem with willingness is that it takes discipline, the problem with discipline is that it takes motivation, the problem with motivation is that not now becomes manana.
