Book Description

Sex, money, drugs and danger: they are all in a night’s work for millions of prostitutes around the world. But who are they? What are their lives like? And how do they really feel about what they do?

Their answers are here, the unvarnished truth of life in the modern sex trade told by those who work in it. Author Julian Davies interviewed streetwalkers, call girls, brothel workers, dominatrix and even male escorts to uncover their twilight world: the tricks of the trade; the violent punters and bizarre requests; the run-ins with the cops; the risks, the family breakdowns and the absurd situations.

Controversial, shocking and explicit, but also often funny and poignant, Hookers is the most candid account ever of life inside the underground sex industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 10 July 2011
Format:Paperback
This book really helped me to realise te hard world within prostitution and how women get into it, the different jobs they do and how there customers treat them. It was also interesting to read how they felt about themselves and what background they had come from as well as some warning people not to get involved in it due to the risks that can happen

Loved this book. There is something about prostitutes that has always fascinated me, I guess its just the fact that I find it so hard to believe that anyone could sleep with so many strangers - i just couldn't do it. From reading this book some woman never had the option and it's their only way of survival. A well put together book, from stories of the hookers themselves to the punters who pick them up. There seems to be different ends of the scale when it comes to hookers, from those who sell their bodies just to earn enough money in order to pay for their next drug fix, to those who are high end escorts, who accompany rich men on dates and then sleep and spend the night with them for over £700 a night and are so used to the high class lifestyle of champagne, designer clothes and jewellery and earning so much money that they just can't stop and know they would never earn that sort of money by doing a normal 9-5 job. Very interesting and would read again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hookers 10 Mar. 2013
By m hunt
Format:Kindle Edition
A very honest and sometimes disturbing read about the oldest profession. Makes you think twice after reading some of these harrowing stories, that these women are fighting for their lives and deserve help. They are not the dregs of society that they are always tagged with. They sometimes have no other choice than to sell themselves. A very (at times) sad read. Makes legalising the trade seem like a good option to help protect these vulnerable women.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting and educational 17 Sept. 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as its such a taboo subject. I have an interest in finding things out and learning about things that I wouldnt normally know. I find it interesting to find out why people do what they do and their experiences.
I bought this book and found it so interesting and I'm glad that I bought it.
The stories from the prostitutes are so different and informative.
I praise the author of this book and find that his approach to this subject brave and the respect shown for the girls involved.
Deffiantely worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed but not personal 6 Aug. 2013
By Zoe
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book - it's a very easy read and I found it really interesting to look at multiple views and experience s prostitutes was enlightening. However, as each individuals story was only a few pages long, you never really had the chance to connect with a specific character which was a shame. I found it very interesting and would definitely recommend it but more as factual & interesting rather than an actual story

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read! 14 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was recommended to me by my college tutor as he had written about the sex trade world for his dissertation and had used this book as part of his research.

I've always been mindly interested in why people become prostitutes and this helped to cure an itch. I found it fascinating to read why the girls did it (some to fund drugs, others just because they liked the money they were earning), and I found it really insightful. At just over 230 pages long, it was an easy read and I finished it within a few hours, I liked how it was broken up into different girls stories and even had a few chapters written in the perspective of the punters which was even more interesting to read.

This is my fist book that I have read by Julian Davies and I plan on reading more by him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and educational 21 Jan. 2012
By Andy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had a typical view of what a prostitute was and the lives they led but these in depth individual stories educated me, as the profession is a lot more than just desperate girls on street corners wanting money for a fix.

The most sad was the lady in Iran where Tehran has approx 300,000 protitutes and god knows how many users then!! There they are murdered by hardline Islamists groups and information on them is passed on from the moral police. They are also treat very badly by their 'clients'.

There is a section on users perspectives too which is interesting. All in all a short and readable book worth a good 4 stars.
