I bought this book thinking that I'd be reading only stories by women in the sex industry. I have always had a fascination with how people begin anything, but especially how women or men cross the line (I don't mean that negatively) and become prostitutes. What this book is, however, is half stories from women in the industry and half academic writings on the plight of prostitutes. Not what I wanted, but still pretty good. As an activist for sex workers' rights and the decriminalization of prostitution I highly recommend this book for everyone who is interested in a realistic, unbiased portrayal of sex work in North America.

The International Sex Workers’ Rights Movement Priscilla Alexander . Telling a Woman Driving at Night Carol Leigh. A woman who worked in the movement to abolish prostitution in France told me, You will never get the real stories. The articles you receive will be written by cops and pimps. This book is about sex, and how shameful and perverted sex has become in our collective psyche-how we have lost respect for pleasure and respect for those who know about it, all in the name of morality. This book is also about money and workers’ rights, and it’s about women.

4 As one sex worker stated, "We want respect for our work. 5 The vehemence of these pronouncements led me to wonder whether feminists must necessarily be committed to the sortof position on pros- titution so roundly condemned by many of the workers themselves. Sur- prisingly, I found that compared to other topics related to sexuality on which feminist theorists have written copiously (. pornography), sex work has received relatively little attention in recent years, and little of that actually fits the vision of feminist theory presented by sex workers.

Frederique Delacoste and Priscilla Alexander (Pittsburgh: Cleis, 1987) . While some sex workers are willing to grant that many women are not in the work by choice, they also insist that some are.

The 1987 anthology Sex Work, a collection of writings by sex trade workers, details many examples of prostitutes who are raped, beaten, injured, robbed, and exploited in the course of their work. Not surprisingly, these women often grow to despise their customers and to hate men in general.

Arcanescar
Perfectly edited, entertaining, intelligent. In this book, one will find a large variety of perspectives, a strong sex-positive feminist lens through which to view sex workers, and a very solid foundation of fascinating and personable narratives.

This book is a staple in anyone's book collection who is interested in the marginalized subject of sex work. The majority of books out there that are about this subject REFERENCE "Sex Work," and it is easy to see why. This should be a no-brainer buy.
Phenade
Fantastic read. Very insightful. Great condition too.
Fordredor
This is an interesting book of interviews with sex workers. It's
honest and insightful. Anyone interested in this subject won't be disappointed. Well done.
Gldasiy
The narratives from the sex workers themselves are sort of interesting, but the scholarship included after those stories is very dated. The volume has value if seen as a seminal publication for academic work in this area.

I bought this book thinking that I'd be reading only stories by women in the sex industry. I have always had a fascination with how people begin anything, but especially how women or men cross the line (I don't mean that negatively) and become prostitutes. What this book is, however, is half stories from women in the industry and half academic writings on the plight of prostitutes. Not what I wanted, but still pretty good.
The stories, from street prostitutes, call girls, massage parlor workers, and strippers are often quite touching. The women, many of whom are lesbian, I've discovered in this book, choose to become prostitutes, prostitution doesn't choose them. They profess to either enjoy their job or to suffer through it not unlike clockwatchers do. Still, I can't help but read pain between the lines in these women's stories. These women are used -- well used, poorly used -- for others' whims. All of us prostitute ourselves to some end, but these women live short careers. To them, there is no glass ceiling, only plaster and dim lights in dingy rooms.
The academic essays supply some fascinating insights into how prostitution started. The authors offer facts about who prostitutes are, where they live, how the law applies to them, and how prostitutes are grouping together for safety and power.
This book, an amalgam or heartbreaking stories and academic consideration, is really a college-level reader, but for those of us who didn't study this stuff at school or are simply interested in the way prostitutes live, it still makes for interesting reading.

As an activist for sex workers' rights and the decriminalization of prostitution I highly recommend this book for everyone who is interested in a realistic, unbiased portrayal of sex work in North America. The first part of the book consists of first-person accounts of sex workers (escorts, street prostitutes, strippers, adult film actresses, peep show workers, etc.) discussing their experiences--the good and the bad--working in the sex industry. These accounts are followed by an overview of organizations dealing with the issue of prostitution (from the pro-decriminalization organization "Coyote" to the prostitutes-as-victims organization "Whisper") and an excellent discussion of the feminist, racial, religious, political, social, and cultural implications of sex work. Outstanding!

I finally hit the jackpot in discovering about a book that breaks down this career opportunity/career disaster from the point-of-view of those who work in the business. This book is also an excellent breakdown of what goes on in the business - massage, escort, adult entertainment and other pertinent businesses that deal with the sales of Human Sexuality.
We love the inside view provided by Sex Work. It not only humanizes sex workers but provides considerable insight into experiences that have been ignored and denied by the mainstream media. We think Sex Work is a great book and highly recommend it to anyone who is working to gain insight into the mysterious world of the sex business.
