Sex work in Dinotopia used to be the most dangerous occupation one could adopt. Only the most desperate engaged in sex work, usually through a madam who exploited them.

Then Queen Bella showed up.

Now, she controls the sex industry. Sex workers under her jurisdiction can count on some protection if a john tries to run out on the bill or gets too rough. Fees are more or less standardized, condoms are widely available and sex workers have access to medical care. Of course, as with all Queen Bella’s ‘associates,’ sex workers are subject to strict rules and swift punishment for infractions.

NB: The majority of Dinotopians take the Catholic approach to condoms, or at least will assert that they do. Nonetheless, Queen Bella’s condom business is doing quite well and shows no signs of slowing down.
