annaverity asked: Bonus Question Just for You: Top 5 Sex Worker Book Club Books That Non-Sex Workers Should Read
Flesh For Fantasy by Kate Frank, Merri Lisa Johnson and Danielle Egan is the most accessible I can think of. It’s an anthology, a little uneven but mostly solid, especially if you skip over the first two customer contributions (I only like the one about the peep show guy really). and it’s a good intro to both
Live Sex Acts which is by a nonsex worker but the best (so far) that I’ve read about treating sex work as work and labour conditions &c
G-Strings and Sympathy which is anthro and about customers and regulars rather than workers rights but really interesting.
I think that I recommend Neon Wasteland even tho she’s a bit clueless because of the class and labour analysis
Sex Work and Sex Workers which I haven’t finished but I already love for the first chapter on social work and problem fixes (it’s the one with the quote that got all the hate last month! so much hate anna so much hate!)
I’ve heard really good things about the comforts of home AND sex worker’s unite! looks good also but I haven’t read either of those yet. Additionally there’re a lot of anthologies but anthologies tend to be pretty uneven and often full of awkward first person poetry which I am less appreciative of than I was when I was a teenager.
