Some not-so-light reading

This isn't going to be an orderly list. I haven't done the labor of making links to the books, as y'all can cut and paste, and I'm sick today. That being said, here's a list of some of my favorite books and articles (mostly) about sex work, in an order that may only make sense to me:

On ho/e/eaux being a racist slur:

On FOSTA:

Books I like:
Sex Workers Unite
Revolting Prostitutes
Rent Girl
Against Memoir
Thriving in Sex Work (meh, a lot of 12 step jargon but some might like it more than I did)
Caliban and the Witch (not about sex work, but about the body and capitalism, and written by a woman)

Huge list of further reading on sex work:
