The following excerpt is from a 2007 Guardian article that I have come across far too late; but it may be safe to state that the people exacerbating the harms come in all shapes and sizes—and some even wear lab coats, or like to utter the words "En", "Gee", and "Oh":

"She has come to the clinic for more than 20 years. In that time, more than $22m in scientific grant money has flowed through the project, and many of the researchers have earned reputations as the top experts in their fields. Yet Agnes and a handful of other women are still selling sex, to an average of eight clients a day, still for a dollar or two each time - although they say they would like nothing more than to get out of sex work."
