I’m a writer and freelance journalist covering sex, tech, and politics, in the streets and everywhere else (and currently living in New York). 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, The New York Times, Wired, The Atlantic, Glamour, The Guardian, In These Times, The Washington Post, Dissent, Slate, Salon, and Valleywag, among other publications.
In my new book Playing the Whore, sex workers' demands, too long relegated to the margins, take center stage.
