This week we have brought you such a treat! Journalist Melissa Gira Grant has just released an incredible text called Playing the Whore and The WhoreCast was lucky enough to snag a LIVE interview with her at the beloved Center for Sex and Culture. So pull up a chair, grab some wine and get ready for your mind to be blown by this epically intelligent and eloquent treasure of the sex worker's rights movement.  Thank you Melissa!

Siouxsie Q on Playing the Whore:

"Melissa Gira Grant has done something remarkable: She has produced a text that challenges pervasive narratives about prostitution, exploitation and even trafficking resulting in an astute argument for a complete overhaul of the way we think about sex work. Playing the Whore is 136 pages of critical information. I highlighted or underlined something on almost every single page. I believe this book should be required reading for anyone with an opinion about sex work." - Siouxsie Q
