    Having read other books and blogs devoted to examining sex work and feminism before reading this one I have to say I was a little disappointed Because the book was written exclusively by people in San Francisco it lacks the range of other sex work collections I don't know if anyone else noticed but it seemed like half the essays were writte

    It almost seemed pro sex worker oriented Which is cool I respect the fact that in many cultures they are outside the whole sexual wars Not as subjugated to the rules yet still put through exile by men and by women due to the fact they don't follow a certain rule Men ashamed by what they mean particularly in correlation to them Women dislike
