Call for Submissions for
Lovers and Partners of Sex Workers Speak
The WhoreLover book project is being brought back to life. It’s an anthology of non-fiction essays written by the non-paying partners of sex workers, about their experiences and feelings regarding their unique position in the marketplace of love.
Present and former lovers and partners of sex workers are encouraged to submit. WhoreLover is looking to represent the stories of a multiplicity of people: people of color, trans, queer, gay/lesbian, straight, different dis-/abilities, of all nationalities, immigration statuses and ages. Partners of workers in all areas of the sex industry will be featured.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
○ Day to day negotiations
○ The many joys and perks of loving a sex worker
○ My partner and I turned each other out
○ I was a trick and then became a lover
○ Loving a Sex Work Celebrity
○ My partner’s job turns me on
○ My partner’s work inspired me to be client of sex workers
○ I’m a sex worker and I only date other sex workers
○ How I deal with family and friends around my partner’s work
○ How I’ve dealt (or not) with my own ego around my partner’s sex work
○ My partner switched jobs within the industry and how that worked for us
○ My partner’s sex work is a secret from everyone (including me?)
○ I broke up with my partner because of sex work
People who have dated/loved/slept with/married sex workers, such as porn actors, strippers, FBSM/sensual massage providers, street-based workers, tantra providers, erotic body workers, sexual surrogates, escorts, fetish workers, phone-sex workers, pro-Dominants and pro-submissives, are welcome to submit.
A limited number of interviews are possible to those who are interested in having their voices heard but feel more comfortable talking than writing – but please,
Submissions should be in English or Spanish, the book will be in English. We can only translate from Spanish, however we encourage people with multi-lingual skills to collaborate in translation and send us submissions with the translator credited.
