Sex work is an exchange of sexual services, performances, or products for material compensation, including direct and indirect sexual stimulation. It includes types of prostitution, exotic dancing, phone sex, and performing in adult films, as well as other potentially lesser-known forms of sex work. Sex work is often confused with human/sex trafficking. While they are similar, there are differences--the main one is that sex work is voluntary, while trafficking is not.

“ Be realistic, Aiden, I told myself. You know your value to the penny and it's measured in inches, time, age, stamina, looks, and being able to put up with gross and sometimes bizarre situations. Personality was far down on a much longer list, and even farther down came intelligence. You should have insisted on having sex. ...more ”
“ A sex worker deserves a billion times more respect, than the mystical fraudsters of the society, such as astrologers, psychics and tarot card readers. ”

[close] We all know working in the adult industry can sometimes feel lonely and leave us with questions and the need for support. This book club is designed for individuls working in the sex industry (phone sex providers, cam girls, strippers, escorts, adult actors, etc.) to connect with other sex workers and discuss books and ideas related to the industry while also making connections! I'm aiming for 2 books a month - one related to our work or topics in sex and one off-topic book to give ourselves time for other interests and discussions outside of the daily grind!
