Interested in hearing about life, love, money and sex from past and present professionals in the sex industry?
Sex Worker Literati is a monthly reading/performance series spawned from the book Hos, Hookers, Call Girls, and Rent Boys: Professionals Writing on Life, Love, Money, and Sex. Sex workers, former sex workers, and people who have worked in the sex industry come together to read and perform their stories, showcasing the diversity of the business of sex.
So when and where is this event exactly?
The reading is on the first Thursday of every month, hosted byAudacia Ray and David Henry Sterry at Happy Ending Lounge in New York City. (Interesting tidbit: the lounge was once an erotic massage parlor. Very fitting!) The doors at open at 7 pm and the reading is from 8-10pm. It's free, but 21 and up.
A portion of the proceeds from the bar go to sex workers rights groups. For this event the funds go to HIPS- Helping Individual Prostitutes Survive.
Here's a video for those want to go, but are too far away:
