Being a sex worker isn't something to write home about for most women (and men) in the 12 billion-a-year sex industry.Prostitutes, strippers, and adult film stars put themselves, and what they do for a living, out on the street, stage, and TV screen every day, but they often keep their working lives hidden from friends, family, and other employers. They do this because sex work is widely considered illegal, unhealthy, and immoral.Edited by Annie Oakley, Working Sex, New Voices from a Changing Industry features stories and contributions from sex workers,strippers, prostitutes, domes, film stars, phone sex operators, and internet models,who are speaking out. This provocative anthology showcases voices from a vibrant community intent on unmasking the jobs they do with dignity and pride. Contributors tackling issues of class, gender, race, labour, and sexuality with blazing insight and critical observations include Michelle Tea, Stephen Elliot, Nomy Lamm, Ana Voog, Vaginal Davis, and Mirha-Soleil Ross.

Review:

"Annie Oakley doesn't need a gun. She's armed with fierce creativity, political passion, big brains and exquisite sexiness. Oakley leads a brilliant crew, which serves up whore culture at its most delicious and satisfying."

"Sex work is commonly understood to be an occupation of last resort, taken up by people who live on society's margins. The Sex Workers' Art Show sets out to dispel those perceptions and to showcase the ways in which sex workers are in control of their bodies, their careers, and their self-respect."

Book Description:

In Working Sex , a proud community of sex workers speak out on race, class, gender, labour, and sexuality, and dish on what it really means to work in the sex industry today
