Despite being dubbed “the world’s oldest profession,” prostitution has hardly been considered as a valid kind of labour. as an alternative, it is usually criminalized, sensationalized, and polemicized. In Selling Sex, Emily van der Meulen, Elya Durisin, and Victoria Love current a extra nuanced view of the intercourse undefined. they carry jointly an enormous number of voices – together with feminists, researchers, advocates, and intercourse employees of each stripe – to problem dominant narratives surrounding intercourse paintings. providing numerous views on such varied subject matters as social stigma, police violence, labour organizing, and human trafficking, Selling Sex is an eye-opening, tough, and useful book.
