[Book Review] Playing the Whore

Playing the Whore : The Work of Sex Work / Melissa Gira Grant (Powell's Books)

Grant has written a treatise on sex work, workers, and the legal, social, and political issues surrounding the industry.  Playing the Whore is about the people and the lives they live, not just the sex they sell, and the sociopolitical pressures they face as organizations who try to outlaw and "redeem" them.  Well written and well informed, Playing the Whore brings a light to parts of sex work we don't see in the news.
