Read in August, 2009

I work with developmentally disabled adults, staying at a group home alone for 20 hour shifts twice a week. I have worked with D.D. folks on and off since high school and have experienced some very weird, sad, and amazing things. In Annie Oakley's introduction to Working Sex she tells a story about a customer who had a Partridge Family fetish and wanted her to pretend to drive the school bus in the peep show. This story is what we want to hear about sex work- not the drudgery and the assholes. I feel the same way about what I stories I tell about work. The weird and disgusting and the funny. Emo Dave has managed to put together little snippets of a world that most of us avoid in a way that is not tokenistic. Put out by Microcosm and hard to get but well worth it. Inspires me to put together some of the amazing things I have been privy to.
