Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex Work - Melissa Gira Grant

This is not everyone's idea of light reading, perhaps, but this short little book is electrifying and written with the kind of confidence that comes from strong conviction. So many opinions about sex work and sex workers are formed in the absence of the experience of actual sex workers: this book provides a much-needed corrective. I may not agree with every point in the text, but I'm sure as hell going to spend a lot more time thinking about it now. Highly recommended.
