A dozen of your favorite New York City sex bloggers and sex educators are joining together to support Sex Work Awareness, a non-profit whose mission statement says it all:
We believe that all sex workers have a right to self-determination; to choose how we make a living and what we do with our bodies.
We aim to empower our diverse community by building the capacity of sex worker-serving and sex worker member-based institutions as well as the skills and resources of sex workers themselves.
We also conduct research about sex workers and the sex industry in order to better understand it, develop public education initiatives, and advocate for the rights of sex workers.
The theme is burlesque. The poses will be sexy. And who will be posing? Take a look, below the fold!
- Audacia Ray
- Elizabeth Wood
- Jamye Waxman
- Lux Alptraum

Our photographer is Stacie Joy, whose specialty is burlesque and New York nightlife. Sinclair and John will be our graphic designers working together to make this project a smashing success. And um, yes, that's me listed there. Surprised? Good!

Please support us in this effort by buying a calendar. If you are truly an enthusiast and a supporter of sex worker self-determination, though, Tess, aka Urban Gypsy, our intrepid and incredibly talented organizer has arranged more. You can, if your heart desires, buy a day on the calendar for a mere $30 dollars. You will get 80 characters with which to greet your favorite blogger, express your undying love to a partner, declare your New Year's resolution, or simply say hello. (But that offer ends soon: October 1, given that the calendar needs to be ready well before the end of the year! Click here for more info.)
