Weeks 11-12: Sex Work in the U.S. and elsewhere
We turn now from Felice Picano's description of his work as a "smut peddler" to a consideration of sex work in the U.S. and elsewhere.

In what ways do they converge, in what ways diverge, in your thinking about the various dimensions involved in sex work?
