Last night, I was giddy as a school girl to have The Sex Workers’ Art Show back in town. Since I last saw it in 2005 (Sadly, they don’t trek out to Ireland), some great new performers have joined up.  My personal favorite was Miss Dirty Martini, fan dancer, stripper, and a woman capable of ingesting an amazing amount of fake dollar bills.  All in all, the show–a burlesque-style cabaret made up entirely of performances by ex- and current sex workers–always astounds me in its ability to be both wildly entertaining and wildly eye opening.  And the glitter and tassles, those don’t hurt either. Go out and see them.  Or take some initiative and book them for your school, your church, your girl scout meeting: whatever it takes!
