Indecent: How I Make It and Fake It as a Girl for Hire By Sarah Katherine Lewis Cover Image
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


A true story of a woman with a "head for business and a body for sin," Indecent chronicles the real work and emotion behind the carnal adult sex industry

Indecent is not your average I-stripped-my-way-through-college memoir. Sarah Katherine Lewis is a veteran of the sex industry who started small -- doing lingerie modeling and striptease shows -- but for reasons including the desire to earn more money and curiosity about other types of sex work moved into porn, and ultimately into illegal work.

Lewis is smart, self-aware, and bitingly funny. Where other writers in this genre have generally shielded themselves from letting things get too bad or go too far, Lewis comes face-to-face with the unimaginable. Her experiences with customers, whose fetishes and behaviors range from obscene to bizarre to twisted, are often recounted with outrageous and caustic humor. Lewis is a brilliant observer of human nature and has a read on her employers and coworkers that lends unique insight into the seedy underground of the more hardcore sex industry. Lewis is a sex worker by choice. She neither condemns nor condones the work, though she depicts her experiences with a gallows humor that reveals the complexity of professional adult sex work. Indecent offers readers an insider's account of hard-earned lessons and acute insight gained from over a decade in the trenches of one of America's most insidious and lucrative industries.
