"Eye-opening, astonishing, brutally honest and frequently funny... unpretentious and riveting — graphic, politically incorrect and mostly unquotable in this newspaper." It is a unique sociological document , a collection of mini-memoirs, rants, confessions, dreams, and nightmares by people who buy sex, and people who sell. And because it was compiled by two former sex industry workers, the collection is, like its predecessor, unprecedented in its inclusiveness. $10 crack hos and $5,000 call girls, online escorts and webcam girls, peep show harlots and soccer mom hookers, bent rent boys and wannabe thugs. Then there's the clients. Captains of industry and little old Hasidic men, lunatics masquerading as cops and bratty frat boys, bereaved widows and widowers. This book will shine a light on both sides of these illegal, illicit, forbidden, and often shockingly intimate relationships, which have been demonized, mythologized, trivialized and grotesquely misunderstood by countless Pretty Woman-style books, movies and media. This is hysterical, intense, unexpected, and an ultimately inspiring collection....

    Don't think I've ever used the term "mind-expanding" in a review but that is exactly what this book is. Heartfelt well-written stories about a part of society unknown or little-known to most of us. No matter how liberal or fringe you think you are there will be something new here. Plus Xaviera Hollander is alive and well!

    I enjoyed these stories! Picked it up in particular to read Veronica Monet's entry, which was of course powerful and fascinating. So grateful for truthful, nonjudgmental viewpoints such as those collected here.

    A lot of stuff I really didn't need to know. There was the occasional, well-written insight in a few of the essays - pleasantly surprising. Apparently sex work is a fairly common side occupation for writers...

    A fascinating anthology. A veritable encyclopedia of prostitution and sex work. All first-person accounts, often highly articulate, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes flat-out disturbing, sometimes all three.

    This book wasn't as good as his other books, but it was still an informative, good read.
