Kaytlin Bailey

Director Of Communications
Decriminalize Sex Work

Kaytlin Bailey is a contrarian by nature and a provocateur by trade. As both a political activist and a comedian, it has been her job to throw rhetorical rocks at proverbial walls.

She came out as a sex worker in 2013. She went on to write about her experiences for Vice and other publications. Her one-woman show, Cuntagious, sold out performances in multiple NYC theater festivals. She is currently developing Whore's Eye View, a fast paced 10,000 year history from a sex worker's perspective.

As the host of the popular podcast The Oldest Profession, Kaytlin explores the history of sex workers. Each episode tells the tale of a different 'old pro' from history.

In 2019 she joined the team at Decriminalize Sex Work as the Director of Communications to help direct the growing support for sex-workers’ rights toward a national strategy to end the prohibition of prostitution in the United States.
