Aphrodite Phoenix
NOT #MeToo. #MeinCharge.
More than merely a memoir, this is an impassioned and ambitious manifesto for independent sex workers’ rights, evolved compassion for men, a deeper understanding of relationships, and victimhood transformed into power. My goal is to engage the general reading public with emotion and empathy, and to provide well-sourced apologetics that can interest academia, as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Reason To Become A Sexworker

Single mothers who need to feed their children sometimes have no other way to turn but to become sex workers. Working three jobs only left her children to run wild and have no supervision. Being a sex worker let her work fewer hours but brought in tons of more money. It is a good book that explains why women choose this profession.

Sincerely speaking, the knowledge that this book suggested sex work being legitimized and respected as a profession first made me reconsider reading it, but as I read on, I got some real values as to the importance of this “profession.” The author was able to explicitly illustrate how sex work brought so much positivity to her. From being a depressed divorcee working five jobs with three kids to feed, to working less hours and earning more pay for something she actually enjoyed doing. In her writings, it was evident that sex work changed her life, and advocating for the legitimacy of it shows her desire to witness other peoples life being changed. This sentiment held me to this book, and I read on, because I felt that the author had a lot of value to share. Additionally, the fact that the author shared the good and bad, pros and cons about sex work also showed that the author was very truthful about her writings, and to be honest, if i was in the position, considering making sex work legitimate would make more sense to me.

Not #MeToo. #MeinCharge, a book by Aphrodite Phoenix, is a thought-provoking and daring account of the world of sex work, written by an author who unapologetically refers to herself as an erotic practitioner. In exposing the societal hypocrisy surrounding the prohibition of prostitution in the majority of the United States, the author courageously challenges cultural norms and encourages readers to reconsider their views on sex work.

One of the most striking aspects of the book is the author's refusal to cast herself as a victim of her circumstances. Instead, she navigates the complexities of the sex industry with resilience and autonomy, offering readers a unique and unfiltered glimpse into a world often shrouded in judgment and stigma. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, her narrative not only challenges preconceived notions surrounding morality but also serves as a testament to the strength and agency of individuals engaged in sex work.

My favorite part of Ms. Phoenix’s book is her writing style, which reflects her educational background in English. Her literary voice projects luxurious richness and, on occasion, a graceful touch of poetic elegance. Ms. Phoenix crafts each sentence with a careful blend of honesty and artistry, creating a narrative that is compelling, philosophical, and enlightening. The vivid descriptions and introspective passages provide readers with an immersive experience, fostering a deeper understanding of the author's perspective. By shedding light on the human side of the profession, Ms. Phoenix exudes empathy and challenges readers to consider the inherent complexities of the choices individuals make within the realm of sex work.

Another thing that I loved about this book is that it transcends the boundaries of conventional literature. It stands as an important contribution to the discourse surrounding sex work, urging readers to move beyond judgment and engage in a more nuanced conversation about autonomy, choice, and the multifaceted nature of human experience.
