On July 30, the Good Vibrations sex shop in Berkeley, California, is hosting a reading of the anthology Hos, Hookers, Call Girls, And Rent Boys: Professionals Writing On Life, Love, Money, And Sex (Soft Skull Press), a collection of short memoirs by 51 former sex workers that comes out today (Jul. 20).
Spokesperson Carrie Dieringer says the stories can be funny, sad, inspiring, and most of all, filthy.
She says, Its definitely possible that people will be blushing after hearing these stories. Theres a lot of over-sharing.
Among the sexy stories is one of a rent boy who was given to someones grandmother for the night as a birthday present and saucy contributions from the infamous lady of the night known as the Happy Hooker.
Dieringer says the anthology humanizes sex workers, since most people have never met anyone thats sold their body for cash.
