Skin And Games
What Sexwork Taught Me About Love
»Prostitution is no secret. It is us who are secret.«
For two years Ilan Stephani works as a prostitute in a whorehouse in Berlin. She develops an alter ego and dives deeply into a tabooed fringe of society. The young and curious woman explores this unknown world and gets surprised: Instead of cliches, whores and clients in the twilight she experiences the brothel as a mirror of society. The world of sexwork deals with the same fears, desires and challenges that humans deal with everywhere else – but shows it more openly.
In an honest and thoughtful way the author describes a microcosm in which she learns a lot about the human nature, our culture and its secrets. She presents insights from being a prostitute that might not have been revealed to her anywhere else, yet reflecting an essence that almost all of us can resonate with.
