Synopses & Reviews
"A courageous and generous book... long overdue! With humor, sensibility and sensitivity Magdalene Meretrix presents this useful and entertaining 'how to'. [Turning Pro] demystifies prostitution in a way no political tract has done. This book is every 'intrigued and ambitious' woman's tool to negotiate what has heretofore been a secret path." Carol Leigh ("Scarlot Harlot"), sex work activist
The actual details of sex work: how to get a job, how to keep yourself safe, how much you can expect to make, how to plan your exit strategy, and much more...as well as juicy anecdotes about what life is like between the sheets.
An essential manual for anybody who's ever considered a career as a phone sex operator, escort, call girl, exotic dancer, adult film performer or any other kind of sex worker.
About the Author
Magdalene Meretrix has worked as a prostitute, escort, phone sex worker, professional submissive, and porn film actress. Her last full-time sex work job was in a legal Nevada brothel. She now works as a writer, paid escort and web page designer, and is an active advocate for sex workers' rights. Her articles have appeared in Scarlet Letters and The Wyrmhole, and last year she chided Ann Landers in print for Ann's condescending attitude toward sex workers.
