Oh, look, I reviewed Sex Workers Unite by Melinda Chateauvert for the San Francisco Chronicle...

Bay Area sex worker activist Carol Leigh coined the gender-neutral term "sex work" in 1978 to describe the myriad ways that people exchange sexual services for money, from street prostitution to phone sex, stripping to erotic massage to nude computer repair. The beauty of the term is its expansiveness - if both sex and work are part of everyday experience, what exactly constitutes sex work? Go ahead - think about that meaningful glance you got from the bank teller when you were making a deposit.
