    I ve been to over 6 Sex Worker Art Shows, and this book feels like that, except for that you can take it home, keep it forever, and visit that mental place whenever you want to or need to Some of the best SWAS performers, as well as others you never made it into that fateful van, provide a wonderful, dramaticly varied, collection of stories Also, I must say that it s quite fun to open a book and say to myself, I know that girl I m so happy she s published

    This book is a good step on humanizing sex workers To the general public its easy to overlook that hookers and others who work in the sex industry are real people with opinions and feelings as well.

    I d recommend reading this book alongside something else perhaps alongside several other books as opposed to using it as your daily subway reading Because this is a collection of vignettes and poems rather than a whole story, reading snippets about sex workers lives became somewhat tedious which is probably not the goal of this collection.

    I didn t finish this so I m using the two star, it was okay , rating from what i did read I got almost halfway before I realized just how much I was avoiding it I assumed this waslike cut and dry essays from different types of sex workers and while some of them do seem to be slightly like that, this is far too artsy for me.

    I generally enjoyed this book Like any collection, not all of the pieces were fantastic, but enough of them were to make it an enjoyable read Some of my favorites were Staged Janelle GalaziaAn Interview with Gloria Lockett Siobhan BrooksDear John Mirha Soleil Ross
