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.

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.

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!
Уou ll never walk alone
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.
