9781920694913: Call Girls: Private Sex Workers in Australia

Call Girls is a comprehensive study of women working in the Australian sex industry - usually outside of brothels and often via telephone from home (thus their name). The book provides fascinating and frank accounts from women working in this shadowy, clandestine world - how they became sex workers and how they run their businesses; what frustrates and frightens them; how they maintain their health; who their customers are; and how their work affects their relationships with partners, lovers, and/or families. Call Girls makes for surprising and challenging reading and, most importantly, places the world of the sex worker within political and legal contexts which will surprise and change the preconceived notions of many readers.
