It is estimated that nearly 10% of women in the US engage in some form of sex work at some point in their lives.

Presented from a pro-sex worker point of view, Straight For The Money: Interviews With Queer Sex Workers is about the observations and experiences of eight lesbian and bisexual women who work as lapdancers, peepshow dancers, and prostitutes in San Francisco. Bold and articulate, these women discuss the impact of sex work on their personal lives, the feminist politics of sex work, and the need for a broader understanding of a greatly stigmatized and stereotyped occupation. Also included are Sexperts writer Joan Nestle, performance artist Annie Sprinkle, writer Carol Queen, and prostitutes' rights activist & videomaker Scarlot Harlot.
