Roberts' vivid, challenging, and impressively researched defense of the unrepentant whore, whom she regards as the most maligned woman in history, tells the story of the prostitute with hundreds of anecdotes of bawdy-house and brothel life.
Her arguments will engage male "experts" and feminist "sisters" alike. Get A Copy. Paperback , pages. Published December 1st by HarperCollins Publishers first published More Details Original Title.

I just think if you're going to read one book on sex work to get a better perspective on the ongoing issues with how society treats women's labour and sex work you should read THIS BOOK!
Its fucking awesome! It easily debunks lots of feminist rhetoric that has been written without sex worker voices by showing the clear failings of attempts of state regulation or criminalization Its just interesting reading these histories that we don't learn about in the mainstream- that taxes charged by the church in medieval times formed a large part of building funds to build their churches, how the shift happened from holding up sex workers and respecting them to seeing them as criminals as protestant reforms and a growing middle class set down ideals about women and sex- and how poorer class women and sex workers were implicated in this That there are sex workers in the early s who fought back against police crackdowns trying to arrest and kill sex workers- some sex workers resisted arrest and stabbed the cops to death!
