My Body, My Business: New Zealand Sex Workers in an Era of Change.

  • Fairleigh Gilmour

Abstract

Sex work is often a topic of lively debate, both in academic and public settings, with discussions around morality, laws and exploitation often creating a noisy discursive space. What is often missing in these discussions is the voices of sex workers themselves, particularly such a diverse range of voices as those found in Caren Wilton’s collection, My Body, My Business: New Zealand Sex Workers in an Era of Change. This book is a collection of eleven life stories from current and former sex workers in New Zealand, based on a series of oral history interviews conducted by Wilton (an oral historian) between 2009 and 2018, framed by simple yet evocative photographs taken by Madeleine Slavick.
