As Jenni writes in her introduction, the term "sex work" conjoins two of the most loaded words in our culture. She also writes, "...for this issue I chose pieces that went deeper than opinion -- writing that questioned the meaning of the phrase 'sex work' itself. And in the end, that general category 'sex work' is exploded and challenged by the writers refusal to reduce a human life to theories and catchphrases, and instead capture the universal experience shared by all of us: love, growing up, honesty, rejection, curiosity, vulnerability, compassion, doubt, desire, loneliness and beauty."
The revue is available in print for purchase as well as free download PDF. I haven't read it all yet, but particularly strong selections come from Collin Kelley, Janann Dawkins, Ellen Kombiyil and Franz Wright, a poet I especially admire.
P.S. Jenni just posted that The Village Voice gave the new MiPO a shout out on its Naked City blog. How appropriate. Here's the link. This note thanks to Collin Kelley's blog.
