This book seeks to change that perception. It celebrates the lives of Shontae, China, Keisha, Detra, and Monique, five Afro-American gay hustlers who struggle to survive and to maintain a life of dignity and value in the face of their drug use and criminal activity. As individuals they vary in terms of background, the manner in which they entered the transgendered world, and the nature of their initiation into the drug subculture. None of them has escaped the ravages of urban decline, crime, drugs, and poverty that accompany life in an inner city, but by the same token, none of them has capitulated to the stresses with which they live.
It is impossible to read these accounts and not come away emotionally drained. As Monique explains, their lives take place in a world of chances. "You take a chance on living or dying, on being hurt or not being hurt, a chance on finding a friend or finding an enemy." It is from this world that their voices speak so eloquently about their families, hustling, sexuality, sexual abuse, friendship, and intimacy.
By letting these women speak, Leon E. Pettiway evokes questions and encourages discussion and a re-evaluation of those who are labeled as deviant. Pettiway reaches beyond academic convention to offer a view with depth and emotion that mere statistics could never provide. While the poverty and often destructive lifestyle of these women may be gut-wrenching, their experiences reveal joy, pain, and the profound strength of the human spirit with which we can all identify. These lives have much to teach us about ourselves and those we label as "other."
Pimps: The Raw Truth Grand Inquisitor Level Pimpnological Conclusions is a highly informative work that is about total comprehension of the totally incomprehensible.
Pimps: The Raw Truth is not another run of the mill collection of hustler's tales that ultimately tell you absolutely nothing, Pimps is in fact an unimaginable wealth of insight into the behavioral profiles and environmental factors that drive individuals to live the self-detrimental lifestyle that is relentlessly pursued by panderers and prostitutes complete with the real world functions of all of their auxiliaries, omen and morbid appendages that is the absolute closest that a literary source can legally come to total comprehension of this ancient clandestine culture.
Pimps very clearly and precisely explains how, as opposed to being a form of Alpha Masculinity, pimping is in fact at its core a highly feminine form of sexual militancy that employs the vagina as a weapons system as opposed to a human reproductive system.
Pimps are merely master victims who are the Kings of minuscule Kingdoms that are built on the mess that other people have created and as such pimps are masters of isolating women and causing them to fly backward by turning them into multi-state in-flight felons.
Pimps: The Raw Truth peers deep into the murkiest depths of the psyche of pimps and prostitutes and completely exposes precisely what lies behind the perms, manicures, jewelry, flashy clothing, drugs, threats, relentless abuse and total obsession with tearing down, breaking and attempting to completely demoralize and control women.
Pimps: The Raw Truth explains why whores are the bipolar opposites of ladies, how to very clearly and precisely distinguish the difference between whores and ladies, why whores in fact do not choose pimps, why runaways are drawn to pimps, why cops act like thugs with government resources, why men pay prostitutes, why women get involved in serial abusive and exploitive relationships, why homosexuals and feminists are constantly at odds with whores and bisexuals, why players are not and absolutely do not succeed as pimps, why criminal organizations ultimately fail, the mysterious parallels between priests and pimps and the reasons why prostitution centers worldwide are invariably likewise religious centers.
For as long as there has been recorded history, secret organizations have stood behind those in power and used them as puppets to mindlessly do the will of their unseen masters whom have come to be referred to as the mythological they and them who in fact remotely control governments and run societies from the shadows and it has long been wondered, exactly who are these people, what is the true source of their power and influence and why is it so vital that they function in total secrecy. However, this book goes exponentially further than merely searching for answers to long unanswered vital questions in that it clearly identifies the single culture that is in fact behind the people who are behind the military-industrial complex and the secret organizations that have long run governments and determined the fate of human civilization.
In this in-depth work about the very real Invisible Empire that has plagued humanity for innumerable millennium, it is my sole aim to clearly identify the extremely ancient and inconceivably highly refined militant culture that is solely responsible for our age of relentless conflict, global terrorism and the constant drift toward one world government as well as the social dysfunction, demoralization, enslavement, robbery and repetitive debilitation of and hatred against Blacks and Asians and precisely why we have been made to suffer it.
The Black Girl Curse is a "Macabre Classic" that is all about gaining real insight into why religion is under attack in every corner of the world, precisely who is in fact behind these attacks, why they are deemed necessary and how these attacks are directly related to the great experiment that in fact lies behind one world government, the military-industrial complex and the culture of perpetual fear, warfare, invasion, cultural devaluation and ceaselessly escalating debt that some of America’s most loyal, dedicated and informed leaders from Abraham Lincoln to William McKinley to Dwight D. Eisenhower to John F. Kennedy have warned us about for nearly two centuries and several have given their lives trying to combat.
The Black Girl Curse in fact completely exposes the true root cause of the problem with black people and exactly why black people have been totally unable to succeed in industrialized civilization. There are dimensions of human behavior and objectivity that are so mad that they are officially designated as national secrets, there are objectives that are so awe-inspiringly sadistic that they are permanently classified as top secret and then there are realms of deception that are capable of exposing human ignorance on a scale that is so inconceivably grand that it is unspeakable to the point that successive generations of individuals will completely turn their backs on generations of their parents and children and literally go to their graves without divulging them.
The Black Girl Curse very clearly and concisely exposes the raw truth about the true source of the extremely warped concepts of strength, masculinity, self-determination and ultra-feminism that immediately preceded three decades of black women's vehement claims that they were strong, totally independent black women who were never ever going to need men of any kind for anything under any circumstances, no matter what eventuality presents itself, which ultimately precipitated the mass-withdrawal from black women, the black male obsession with marrying and dating white women at black women's goading and the subsequent total collapse of the black family, the black agricultural and industrial base and black women's entire support base that have very hideously been being kept hidden from young people for generations...Until now!
Hoe$, which is composed of unique true whore elements and select whore specific elements from Pimps: The Raw Truth Grand Inquisitor Level Pimpnological Conclusions, completely shatters age old gross misconceptions that people have about what a true whore is, what a true whore does, who in fact is a true whore and what in fact drives women to engage in true whoredom.
Hoe$ has been created for those who have a specific interest in gaining a clear understanding of the whore mindset and the whore aspect of the wild and wooly world of pandering and prostitution and as such Hoe$ analyzes every relevant aspect of true whoredom from the recipe of a whore to the in fact origin of true whores to the psychological and motivational aspects of true whores to common profiles and behavioral patterns of true whores to comprehending true whores total obsession with demoralization, self-demoralization and self-mutilation to understanding why true whores absolutely must have and are occasionally driven to kill pimps to insights into how through modern advancement bona fide pimp paying whores have been turned into housewives to the total diffusion of true whoredom.

Not everyone appreciated the sisters’ attempts to elevate the industry. Rival Levee madams hatched numerous schemes to ruin the Everleighs, including an attempt to frame them for the death of department store heir Marshall Field, Jr. But the sisters’ most daunting foes were the Progressive Era reformers, who sent the entire country into a frenzy with lurid tales of “white slavery”——the allegedly rampant practice of kidnapping young girls and forcing them into brothels. This furor shaped America’ s sexual culture and had repercussions all the way to the White House, including the formation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
With a cast of characters that includes Jack Johnson, John Barrymore, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., William Howard Taft, “Hinky Dink” Kenna, and Al Capone, Sin in the Second City is Karen Abbott’s colorful, nuanced portrait of the iconic Everleigh sisters, their world-famous Club, and the perennial clash between our nation’s hedonistic impulses and Puritanical roots. Culminating in a dramatic last stand between brothel keepers and crusading reformers, Sin in the Second City offers a vivid snapshot of America’s journey from Victorian-era propriety to twentieth-century modernity.
A riveting, raw, and beautiful memoir of tragedy and hope
Born in a village deep in the Cambodian forest, Somaly Mam was sold into sexual slavery by her grandfather when she was twelve years old. For the next decade she was shuttled through the brothels that make up the sprawling sex trade of Southeast Asia. Trapped in this dangerous and desperate world, she suffered the brutality and horrors of human trafficking—rape, torture, deprivation—until she managed to escape with the help of a French aid worker. Emboldened by her newfound freedom, education, and security, Somaly blossomed but remained haunted by the girls in the brothels she left behind.
Written in exquisite, spare, unflinching prose, The Road of Lost Innocence recounts the experiences of her early life and tells the story of her awakening as an activist and her harrowing and brave fight against the powerful and corrupt forces that steal the lives of these girls. She has orchestrated raids on brothels and rescued sex workers, some as young as five and six; she has built shelters, started schools, and founded an organization that has so far saved more than four thousand women and children in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos. Her memoir will leave you awestruck by her tenacity and courage and will renew your faith in the power of an individual to bring about change.

Based on ten years of research, Economies of Desire is the first ethnographic study to examine the erotic underpinnings of transnational tourism. It offers startling insights into the commingling of sex, intimacy, and market forces in Cuba and the Dominican Republic, two nations where tourism has had widespread effects. In her multi-layered analyses, Amalia Cabezas reconceptualizes our understandings of informal economies (particularly “affective economies”), “sex workers,” and “sexual tourism,” and she helps us appreciate how money, sex and love are intertwined within the structure of globalizing capitalism.
