I’m a writer and freelance journalist covering sex, tech, and politics, in the streets and everywhere else. My latest book, Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex Work (Verso, 2014) challenges the myths about selling sex and those who perpetuate them. My reporting and commentary appears in The Nation, Wired, The Atlantic, Glamour, The Guardian, In These Times, The Washington Post, Dissent, Slate, Salon, and Valleywag, among other publications, and I’m a contributing editor at Jacobin. I live in New York.
In my new book Playing the Whore, sex workers' demands, too long relegated to the margins, take center stage.
