What a cracker of a book about sex workers in New York city and how the police continually violate their civil rights, irrespective of whether it is men or women and label them prostitutes. It shows how law enforcement instigate stings on sex for sale, shows how the police operate work undercover and then incite fear towards sex workers. This is reality and what you see on television is only half of what really goes on. This book also explains how different countries react towards sex workers and who deny justice .

Interesting and very well written and presented. Contains relevant info covering the main issues facing sex workers - for those already educated in this area it doesn't necessarily present any new ideas but does contain a lot of references and research which makes it worth reading. It is (very importantly) written by a sex worker which is essential in order to give a platform to the people who are in the best position to advise on the issues facing them.

this book was very insightful and thought provoking, a rare read on sex workers and sex work. very interesting and raises pertinent questions about labour, services and the whore perception. definitely a must read!

This is an interesting look at the work of prostitutes, lap dancers, pole dancers and pornographic film actors. It looks at the situation primarily in America and includes comments from people in the industry and how they feel about the work.

I found it particularly fascinating in that it looks at the attitudes of the general public to the sex industry and asks why sex in marriage is acceptable but paying for sex and receiving payment for it suddenly makes it something shameful for the women who provide the service but not for those who use the service.

I found this an intriguing, thought provoking and down to earth book and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in sociology and the way society in general views certain activities. It is written in an accessible style and can be read by the general reader as well as those studying sociology or gender issues.

I received a free copy of this book for review purposes.
