Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The only thing the writers in this book have in common is that they've exchanged sex for money. They're PhDs and dropouts, soccer moms and jailbirds, $2,500-a-night call girls and $10 crack hos, and everything in between. This anthology lends a voice to an underrepresented population that is simultaneously reviled and worshipped.

Hos, Hookers, Call Girls, and Rent Boys is a collection of short memoirs, rants, confessions, nightmares, journalism, and poetry covering life, love, work, family, and yes, sex. The editors gather pieces from the world of industrial sex, including contributions from art-porn priestess Dr. Annie Sprinkle, best-selling memoirist David Henry Sterry (Chicken: Self-Portrait of a Young Man for Rent), sex activist and musical diva Candye Kane, women and men right off the streets, girls participating in the first-ever National Summit of Commercially Sexually Exploited Youth, and Ruth Morgan Thomas, one of the organizers of the European Sex Work, Human Rights, and Migration Conference.

Sex is a billion-dollar industry. Meet the real people who are its flesh and blood.

MarcusHorne, August 14, 2009 (view all comments by MarcusHorne)
I was at first alittle weary about reading this book out in public, but once I got into I really did not care. This is a very enlightening inquiry into a lifestyle that has been around for years. I was really amazed at the stories and insight given in the book. It was an entertaining read but also a sad one at that. If you can put aside any preconcieved notions of the book and give it a chance you will realy be intriqued by this book. I give it an easy 5 stars.
