The scope of this paper focusses on the physicality of sex work and the way sex workers relate to themselves and their bodies. It looks at the way that Hustling Verse: An Anthology of Sex Workers’ Poetry (2019) places complex elements such as identity and self in sex work in conversation with each other, and discusses these elements with respect to the emotional impact engaging in sex work can have.
