“ Feminists have accepted that choice is possible when it comes to a different, difficult subject: abortion. The feminist position (and I agree with it) is that women own their bodies and therefore each woman has the right to choose to get an abortion if she gets pregnant. This is called being "pro-choice".

[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!
