Product description

Review

Collectively as a society we've got a whole bunch of tangled, warped intuitions and policies towards the exchange of money for sex. Melissa Gira Grant does a remarkable job of rigorously teasing these apart and righteously scrapping those she finds wanting. Her work has been hugely influential in how I think about sex work and outright changed my mind on a number of points. She's a must read. --Chris Hayes

An important contribution to debates around sex and work, and deserves to be read by anyone who wants to get beyond tired and damaging understandings of both. --Nina Power, author of One Dimensional Woman

An informative and extremely worthwhile addition to the existing body of literature on sex work. --Stoya, adult performer and Vice columnist

A persuasive manifesto… Underneath Grant’s strategically inclusive argument lurks a harder political critique of the transformation of politics and economics since the 1970s.
– London Review of Books
