I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
This is the book that introduced the term “sex work” to the public, a new vision of prostitution articulated by sex workers themselves. It has never been equalled.

Several narrators managed to keep an interisting story going. Several of the contributirs made it clear, that most poor women have no choice but to sell their bodies or starve. The overall economic climate across the world underpays women. So being male, white and from one of the more affluent countries ( often brought by theft, war, slavery ), I am blessed and the words of the interviewed woman made this very clear to me.
My recommendations were skewed by True Porn Clerk Stories. I had kind of assumed this would be humorous anecdotes. I was wrong
There were some moments I laughed but it was far more conflicting. I listen mostly for escapism, this was kind of the opposite.
A good read. Maybe not what I wanted to hear but more what I should hear.
