But rarely do these fearful, salacious dispatches come from sex workers themselves, and rarely do they deviate from the position that sex workers must be rescued from their condition, and the industry simply abolished — whore sex position common among feminists and conservatives alike. In Playing the Whore, journalist Melissa Gira Grant turns these pieties on their head, arguing for an overhaul in the way we think about sex work. Read less. Print length. Publication date.

Melissa Gira Grant does a remarkable job of rigorously teasing these apart and righteously scrapping those she finds wanting. Her work has been hugely influential in how I think about sex work and outright changed my mind on a of points. She's a must read. Keeping the focus on ideas instead of autobiography has an impressively unsettling effect, as we're forced to acknowledge the writer's boundaries, and our own voyeurism.

Verified Purchase. An interesting book that I highlighted a lot in. What made it more than just a text book is its clear insider knowledge by the author. Great book, thanks! One of the best books on sex work, views, lobbies, history and movements and politics of it. I am usually hesitant to read books on this subject since usually the books on area of sex work are fantasy tale of good and evil with erotic dressing.

After reading the review of the book on Boston Review, I started reading the book. It is a very good read and educates the reader very well. Strong and passionate, and in my opinion, accurate argument on how women working as sex workers are mistreated by societal institutions that are made to protect them and everybody else. After the third or fourth chapter, the arguments get repetitive causing it to become a boring read. This is unfortunate because I think the arguments and topics are vital, but the delivery takes away from that.

As someone in the industry. I found this book to be - just okay I began to feel as if I was reading whore sex daunting incoherent debate. Though she does make great whore sex, her wording and the lack of flow throughout the entire book can be a bit - odd.

Whether the arguments were not presented with enough clarity or information, or whore sex lack of directed focus caused the difficulties I am not quite sure, but the promise was a far cry from the reality in this book. Don't spend the money unless you are looking for a primer on the topic.

I bought this book expecting a well-sourced, thoughtful discussion of the history and present reality of sex work. It did not meet my expectations. The author writes well, and she does a passable job of providing an overview of the issues raised by sex work, but it is only an overview.

The book is surprisingly short and offers virtually no substantive analysis of the topics presented. Most disappointing for me, however, was the total absence of any citations to sources. It is simply inexcusable to present conclusions that are often antithetical to the majority views held by society and not provide any source for the conclusions. There are much better sources of information on the topics presented available for free on the internet. It would be worth the price to read this capable author's in depth exploration of these issues with footnotes, pleasebut the cursory treatment of the subject matter does not justify the relatively high purchase price.

I don't remember reading a more consciousness-raising book before this one. Grant potently lays out the hypocrisy of anti-sex work folks and just how terrible the "Rescue Industry" is. It's appalling, as are the hypocrisies of the anti-sex work reformers when it comes to their complicity in the police brutality and sexual assault sex workers face as a result of criminalization and stigmatization. Be prepared to have any assumptions, perceptions, or prejudices you may have about sex work and sex workers powerfully challenged.

It takes a lot of courage to advocate for the rights of sex workers, particularly in a country like America, where our handling of human sexuality is ridiculous and slut-shaming can be a powerful deterrent, Much thanks to Guardian columnist Margaret Corvid for referring me to this book.

Not necessarily new information for those already involved academia or activism in this area but definitely one of the most concise summaries I've ever come across, with great references to other resources you can follow up with in order to read in greater depth.

It's also really accessible and easy to get to grips with for those who may not know much about the language or the politics around prostitution.
