LOTR: Sex Worker Rights; thoughts from a former call girl

Liberty on the Rocks is thrilled to announce a bonus event for the month of June with special guest Maggie McNeill, who will be sharing her knowledge and experience on how prostitution laws undermine liberty for everyone.

Maggie’s articles have been published on Reason.com (The Mythical Invasion of the Super Bowl Hookers) and in Radley Balko’s Washington Post blog (Lies, Damned Lies and Sex Worker Statistics).

About Maggie:

Maggie McNeill was a librarian in suburban New Orleans, but after divorce economic necessity spurred her to take up sex work; from 1997 to 2006 she worked first as a stripper, then as a call girl and madam. She eventually married her favorite client, retired, and moved to a ranch in the rural Upper South. There she writes a daily blog called “The Honest Courtesan”, which examines the realities, myths, history, lore, science, philosophy, art, and every other aspect of prostitution; she also reports sex work news, critiques the way her profession is treated in the media and by governments, and is frequently consulted by academics and journalists as an expert on the subject.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
