The conclusion examines critical issues regarding the growth of online sex work and how since the introduction of the Internet laws have not been adequately updated. It raises several essential questions about the future of online sex work and the law. Additionally, the current anti–sex work climate in the United States and the fear of litigation created by policies such as FOSTA are beginning to reverberate throughout the global network of sex work industries. Perhaps the conditions created by FOSTA, alongside the existing exploitation, discrimination, and harassment cam models regularly face, will be the catalyst for political mobilization. At this point, there are no indications that among cam models any movement toward unionization or collective struggle to challenge capitalist exploitation is afoot. Another critical question emerges, If cam models do organize, what would resolve their experiences of exploitation, discrimination, doxing, harassment, and privacy violations? The conclusion uses the case of the movement to decriminalize prostitution to explore how many sex workers survive state-sponsored violence by politically drawing on neoliberal ideologies about individual freedom and liberties.
