Review Prostitute Laundry

Prostitute Laundry Download Ä 8 In the winter of 2014 writer and sex worker Charlotte Shane sent out her confessional letter to a small but devoted mailing list In the months that followed readership grew to over 4500 subscribers who followed her cand. I wish it hadn t but this book made me profoundly angryWhen you read someone s account of their own experiences you want to be nodding your head you want generally to feel like they are being frank with you or at least frank with themself about themself Reading Prostitute Laundry is like being strapped to a chair while someone plays you a propaganda film about their own life Prostitute Laundry is a published collection of Tiny Letter email blasts taken from over the course of about a year and a half authored by at the time sex worker Charlotte Shane It is full of sex lots of sex but you don t not sign up for that when you start reading a book with prostitute in the title and anyways there s nothing wrong with that to begin with And it s not even the sex parts that offended me because I live in 2017 and not Utah it was the love parts Yes the love was so so offensiveTry this Seeing him somewhere other than his condo made me aware of his larger life which made me curious about him and so I asked if he got hit on a lot by guys at the gym I knew he did And it made me happy to think about all these people wanting my George Like when I told him it makes me jealous to think of him coming on another girl s face but jealous in the fun way My problem is that as I read Prostitute Laundry I was forced to be complicit in the narrator s sense of herself her rationalizations her heavily cropped self characterizations her explanations for each of her thoughts and actions and how they even if they were selfish and she knew it were actually not selfish because insert flouncy self important metaphor that explains nothing but agreeably changes the subject People get so hot and bothered about Lena Dunham for being a naive navel gazer but at least she has the guts to be 1% self effacingWhat is jealous in the fun way I felt like every other paragraph I was being sold a way of thinking around something I had assumed was good logic like how imagining someone you have feelings for having sex with someone else is going to make you feel weird if not bad Or that if someone is trying to be an asshole to you he is actually being an asshole to you George and I don t sex the way most people sex and that s ok The fact that he d fuck someone while claiming to be in pain didn t for me negate his claims to care about me But because I have sex to comfort myself not to damage someone else I wouldn t use the fact of that sex cruelly I had no idea how else to interpret him bringing it up though I wanted to Was he petty enough to hope to hurt me that way or stupid enough to believe that was a good way to hurt me Me who d never once objected to his many partners or shamed him or done anything other than encourage him It is frustrating to experience someone go through a series of sexual and emotional roller coasters most of which are self inflicted and have them at every turn refuse to feel negative feelingsThere are several annoying things at play that make this book almost completely unbearable for me Just one is the narrator s insistence on couching every feeling in terms to ensure that feeling comes across as extra different or cool or special See jealous in the fun way or the passage below after her and her new love Max have to simultaneously think about the fact that she is a sex worker If I could have excised that part of my life then on my back in the bed without him I would have Not out of sexual shame or general propriety but because any part of me that hurt him that couldn t be shared with him might as well be gone for me too Reading this feels like I m being lied to Like she can t admit that she would feel an emotion as base and unenlightened and unfeminist as shame Like she can t admit to herself that the sex she has with the man she wants to marry is just really good and not life altering or infinitely better and special than everybody else s sex She seems almost confused by it it makes her anxious She acts confused too about the hurt that occurs when she and Max decide to sit in the unknowns of her sex work life and attempt to daintily avoid happening upon the topic occasionally unsuccessfully You would think that a memoir from a sex worker would include a good example of the conversation you have with a new partner about the fact that you are a sex worker But somehow it s avoided altogether and he just knows and it s okayOver and over again Shane broadcasts her vulnerability without actually being vulnerable She is never disappointed or hurt or sad she is only incredulous angry with herself flinty and anxious offering love to other people and then closing her eyes and turning away and telling them it doesn t matter what they say in return It s the worst kind of myopia It s self love treason Because if you can t really look yourself in the eyes Can you say anything about sex About relationships The back of the book boasts that the novel is one young woman s best attempt at understanding her own rich conflicted life I would argue passionately the opposite This novel is one young woman s best attempts to never understand her own life To hide from understanding it at all costsVirginia Woolf said If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people I think that s the underlying wrong thing about this book and what really makes it flatten as you read it despite the many and rotating characters and sticky characterizations of sex and love it just does not do the ringing true thing because ultimately it s probably not

I started reading Charlotte Shane s newsletter in August 2014 so I had read about half of these essays before But reading them consecutively start to finish was revelatory Prostitute Laundry changed the way I think and feel about intimacy and sex and love I snapped photos of and revisited so many passages that I almost want them tattooed on my body I was sorry to be hurting the people closest to me but those months were like shattering a glass bottle to get to something exuisite held inside But I still felt like my love for him had been in me like a vein of gold ore Sometimes I wondered if all the pain of the past years was me seeing the light glint off it but not knowing how to touch it Maybe it was so affecting because some of the letters spoke to almost the exact circumstances of my life right now but I also don t think there will be a time in my life when I can t find some flashes of insight about interpersonal relationships in this book So I plan to re read it a million times and I m trying to talk myself out of starting tonight
