Hey Lola-- I want to purchase your books in whatever way it helps you the most. where's the best place to buy?
Great question, and I appreciate that so much!
I love the book, and want to tell the world, but I can't/am not comfortable leaving a review on Amazon, iTunes, etc.
I get it! For those of you who received the book as a gift, or bought it through a civvy account, or don't give your money to mega-companies, you can still share your thoughts by:
I have a sex-work-related project, and I'd like your help. I need: Statistics, studies, sex worker contacts.
Helping working sex workers is my mission; educating the broader public about sex work is not. If you're looking for sex-work related statistics or studies, I'm not a good source other than the articles available on my Resources pages. Also, I'm not available to make introductions or connect you directly with sex workers for any purpose.
However, if you have a clear, concrete plan to recruit sex worker participants that you'd like me to promote on social media, I will consider assisting your project. Please review these guidelines before contacting me.
You're retired, Lola. Why do you still call yourself a sex worker?
Fair question. After all, a job in the sex industry isn't the same as sexual orientation or gender identity.
Somebody smart once said you're a Lusty like you're a Marine: for life. "Former" never appears in front of the title. I've been retired for more than a decade now, but sex work remains a key component of my sexual and career identity and continues to shape my worldview. For me, sex worker is a lifetime identification.

Will you be a guest blogger for my sex worker blog?
Ditto above, but please read my writing request guidelines first.
