Colette Pervette is an active proponent sex workers rights, femdom, BDSM, polyamory, and alternative sexuality.  She is an advocate of sex worker’s rights and speaks about the misconceptions assumed of sex workers today.  Colette states, "I think one of the more dangerous misconceptions is that all sexworkers all putting ourselves in harm's way. And therefore we must stop what we're doing, for our own safety. That's why there are these bills like SESTA/FOSTA, which on the face of it sounds like it's like trying to "protect us" when in fact, it's trying to extinguish all sexwork, which is our livelihood.”  She asserts that the Sex Worker movement is “not unlike the LGBTQ movement" in that they are not going to go away because society does not understand them at the time. Sex workers have existed throughout history and Colette proposes personal and collective story-telling to demystify the mystery and misconception around her work as a dominatrix and sexworker.
