Don't think I've ever used the term "mind-expanding" in a review but that is exactly what this book is. Heartfelt well-written stories about a part of society unknown or little-known to most of us. No matter how liberal or fringe you think you are there will be something new here. Plus Xaviera Hollander is alive and well!

I enjoyed these stories! Picked it up in particular to read Veronica Monet's entry, which was of course powerful and fascinating. So grateful for truthful, nonjudgmental viewpoints such as those collected here.

A lot of stuff I really didn't need to know. There was the occasional, well-written insight in a few of the essays - pleasantly surprising. Apparently sex work is a fairly common side occupation for writers...

A fascinating anthology. A veritable encyclopedia of prostitution and sex work. All first-person accounts, often highly articulate, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes flat-out disturbing, sometimes all three.
