    The Holy Whore essay seemed a little extreme and it comes early in the book But don't let that one dissuade you from finishing it I found this to be an amazing anthology of voices not often heard This is a must read for anyone who has never considered sex work from a feminist perspective OR for anyone that believes all sex worker

    “It’s no wonder that whore stigma attaches itself viciously to women than to men for in this society a sexually emancipated woman is threatening and despised; neither ‘slut’ nor ‘whore’ is a name most women want to wear Sex workers cross this line either proudly or not for money adventures or rebellion” This is an informative well contributed anthology with essays from various members of the sex industry These people
