Review: The Prostitution of Women and Girls by R. Barri Flowers
The Prostitution of Women and Girls - R. Barri Flowers

This book is a tedious read. I had to read it in chunks with large breaks between each. I am not all that impressed. In fact, I think the author was more impressed than I, the reader, as he tries time and time again to give a shock effect with the data. Mind you, the data is shocking, but the style of writing and the tone of Flowers is flat that I was just blasé sometimes. Or perhaps it is because of the far superior book I had read previous to this one: Sex for Sale (a collection of well researched academic essays), which is more comprehensive and up to date, although not as well focused on the prostitution of minors.

 

The book is divided into five main parts, each with it's own subsections.

Review: Sex for Sale by Ronald Weitzer (Editor)
Sex For Sale: Prostitution, Pornography, and the Sex Industry - Ronald Weitzer

This book is an excellent resource for anyone interested in better understanding the sex industry. The 14 essays in this collection are all based on empirical research and the contributors are practically all Ph.D holders and most are in academia as professors or assistant professors. So, for the most part, this is top-notch information. There are essays based both on quantitative and qualitative research, and the compilation is brilliantly categorized into four main sections: I-Pornography, II-Stripping and Telephone Sex, III-Prostitution and IV-Trends

The first essay, 'Sex Work: Paradigms and Policies' is more of an overview essay that touches on most of the topics to be discussed in more detail in the pages that follow. It acts as a perfect introduction to the collection and contains much statistical evidence to lay the groundwork for the kind of data one can expect from the more quantitative essays.

Sex Dungeon For Sale!
Sex Dungeon For Sale! - Patrick Wensink Dear Patrick Wensink -

You made me spit grape juice out of my nose on Public Transportation on the way to my day job because your short stories are so humorous. Now my book looks like it was sprayed with a blood machine. Sure it adds character to the book itself but my nose hurt for the rest of the day and I received quite a few WTF looks while I attempted to clean up before the bus got to my stop.

However, any book that elicits that kind of response from a lowly reader like myself, I consider to be an excellent book and one that I will revisit when life is being way too serious and I need a bizarre, surreal, comedic gold moment to take the edge off.

Thank you for writing such a wonderful compilation of short shorts. I enjoyed every single one of them and feel as if they went by way too fast. Now I can't wait to see what your next novel will be like.

Your fan,

- Kate
