'[A] clear-eyed, not-even-slightly-erotic, compulsively readable, sometimes painfully honest account of his time, reasons and experiences paying for sex...[W]ill engage your mind and force you to think about things in ways you may never have done before.'-Neil Gaiman A CONTEMPORARY DEFENCE OF THE WORLD'S OLDEST PROFESSION Paying For It is a natural progression for Brown as it combines the personal and the sexual aspects of his autobiographical work with the polemical drive of Louis Riel. Brown calmly lays out the facts for us of how he became, not only a willing participant, but a vocal proponent of one of the world's most hot-button topics-prostitution. While this may appear overtly sensational and just plain implausible to some, Brown's story stands for itself. Paying For It offers an entirely contemporary exploration of sex work from the timid John who rides his bike to his escorts, and reads Dan Savage for advice, to the modern-day transactions complete with online reviews, seemingly willing participants, and clean apartments devoid of cliched depictions of street corners, drugs, or pimps.
