Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book makes a major contribution to understanding the everyday lives, experiences and perspectives of sex workers. It offers a rich body of evidence that shatters the myths that have gained purchase in policy debates in the UK and elsewhere. It should be essential reading for everyone working in this field - academics, practitioners and policy makers alike.” ―Andrea Cornwall

“Ditmore et al. have put together a thought-provoking collection, showcasing provocative essays from sex workers and academics. The book eloquently makes the case for the need for activist and academic collaboration in sex work research, and answers that challenge with brilliance and brio. The gauntlet has well and truly been thrown down.” ―Jo Doezema, author of Sex Slaves and Discourse Masters

“Sex Work Matters digs deep into the unexpected ways that sexual commerce is embedded in the global pleasure and leisure industries. It's an essential guide for anyone intrigued by how sex work is moving beyond the margins and into the center of the public square.” ―Melissa Gira Grant, $pread magazine, Valleywag.com, www.melissagira.com

“Sex Work Matters is destined to become a classic in its field, offering fresh new perspectives on romantic and economic taboos in the lives of sex workers. The future of research on erotic commerce depends on these powerful voices, informed arguments and timeless ideas.” ―Tracy Quan, author of Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl and Diary of a Jetsetting Call Girl
