$pread

Edited by Audacia Ray, Eliyanna Kaiser & Rachel Aimee

$pread, an Utne award–winning magazine by and for sex workers, was independently published from 2005 to 2011. This collection features the enduring essays about sex work around the world, first-person stories that range from deeply traumatic to totally hilarious, analysis of media and culture, and fantastic original illustrations and photographs produced just for the magazine. The book also features the previously untold story of $pread and how it has built a wider audience in its posthumous years. What started as a community tool and trade magazine for the sex industry quickly emerged as the essential guide for people curious about sex work, for independent magazine enthusiasts, and for labor and civil rights activists.

"Whore culture at its very best. $pread is the real deal. You will so feel the love, wit, and wisdom."

—Annie Sprinkle, PhD, sex worker turned sexologist artist

"$pread is a phenomenal resource for sex worker self-determination and renegade social change. From Mumbai to Mexico City, New Orleans to New York to Phuket, this anthology examines sex work through the politicized lenses of worker solidarity, communal care and intersectional feminism. Expansive in its range and incisive in its analysis, $pread shows the ways in which sex workers build relationships and analysis across borders, expanding the possibilities for everyone."

—Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, author of The End of San Francisco

"Everyone needs $pread—sex workers, sex customers, sex readers, sex writers, sex thinkers, and everyone having sex.:

—Vanessa Place, author of The Guilt Project
