“I think it was George Carlin who said: ‘If selling is legal, and sex is legal, why is selling sex illegal?'”
“By the time I got to formal sex work I was almost 31, it’s funny that I didn’t think of it sooner”
In our second episode we talk to Maggie ‘Ex Call-Girl’ McNeill. Maggie has been a librarian, stripper, call-girl, madam, and housewife. She is now best known for her blog The Honest Courtesan where she discusses the issues surrounding sex work. Her blog has led to guest lectures on the topic as well as multiple media appearances and her work has been published in theWashington Post. She is also the author of Ladies Of The Night, a book of creative fiction based around her experiences as a prostitute. She currently lives in the Southern US but did most of her sex work in New Orleans. Maggie is very active on twitter as an advocate of sex worker’s rights and opposes the mainstream media of all sex workers as ‘broken dolls.’ Maggie made a wonderful, charming, interviewee and I’m sure you’ll find what she has to say thought provoking. Enjoy.
