SAN FRANCISCO -- When San Francisco police began a recent crackdown on street prostitution, some people were excited about it, but there were a few who were not, including prostitute Maxine Doogan.

Doogan wasn't shy about talking about the world's oldest profession.

"I've worked in the industry for 18 years, and I hope to be working for 18 more," Doogan said.

Doogan stood at a corner in lower Nob Hill on Wednesday to speak out on behalf of fellow sex workers.

She joined other sex-worker advocates to complain about the recent arrests of more than 40 prostitutes in the neighborhood. She complains that separation of sex and money is not prostitution.

"When criminalization is really heavy in an area, women have to go to work in more isolated areas, less well lit," Rachel West said.

But the spontaneous demonstration at the corner of Pine and Hyde streets didn't get much sympathy from neighbors, Thespoof.com reported.

Doogan complains that she sings a song in exchange for the $30.00 she receives. She then gives the customer a ticket which shows a tiny pre-printed receipt. The receipt says the money is in exchange for the five minute song.

The sex she has with the customer is completely legal and no different from that of a boy friend and girlfriend. She showed us her business license which says she is a singer.
