Since the late 1970s, Harlot (a.k.a. Carol Leigh) has written, performed, and produced work in a variety of genres on womens issues and her experiences in the sex industry. This collection of articles and essays documents over twenty years of prostitute radicalism from a leader of the sex workers rights movement. Heady, political, and sexy, these autobiographical missives defend sex, queer rights, and reproductive freedom and attack fundamentalist feminism, economic injustice, and discrimination. Leighs writings explore a historic cultural and artistic underground from an irreverent point of view, challenging conventions of sexuality, aesthetics, technology, and prevailing social mores. Included are photographs of boudoir scenes, nudes, and political street theatre by notable photographers including Annie Sprinkle, Ann Marie Rousseau, and Michelle Clement.
