But Melissa’s book brings up another issue that I like to call the “Good Sex Worker.” White, educated women who do or did sex work, and then write about it...

Spot-on piece - this has been a phenomenon that’s needed some classifying for a while - and “good sex workers” chime in, in the comment section. What’s interesting is that, at least for a period in the 00s, the “good sex worker” story just seemed like a shortcut to a book deal and greater media presence, and in any case where there’s a series of books detailing the same event, good lord the returns are diminishing. (Love Strip City by Lily Burana, would not recommend Bare by Elisabeth Eaves.) I would love to see more stories from a whole spectrum of sex workers.
