"Most magazines tell their readers how to live, what to buy, and who to be. $pread Magazine, like the best forms of media and art, shows us ourselves--in ways we have not before recognized. This anthology is diverse, hilarious, intelligent, resilient, vulnerable, and sometimes frightening."
--Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart

"$pread is a fascinating collection from a group of courageous women who created the first publication to explore sex work in a compelling and intelligent way. Be prepared to have your preconceived notions challenged."
--Candida Royalle, author, entrepreneur, erotic film director

"Everyone needs $pread--sex workers, sex customers, sex readers, sex writers, sex thinkers, and everyone having sex."
--Vanessa Place, author of The Guilt Project

"From activists to mercenaries, college-girl escorts to needle exchange veterans, $pread published the writing and opinions of sex workers, for sex workers, warts and all. This smart, funny, and heartbreaking anthology is as real as you can get."
--Susie Bright, author of Big Sex Little Death

"Spanning Mumbai, Mexico City, New Orleans, New York, and Phuket, this anthology examines sex work through the politicized lenses of worker solidarity, communal care, and intersectional feminism. $pread is a phenomenal resource for sex worker self-determination and renegade social change."
--Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, author of The End of San Francisco
