This week, Erin welcomes Modern Whore Andrea Werhun back to the podcast.  Listen along as they talk about the new hardcover edition of her sex work memoir, how the coronavirus might affect sex work long term, and stripping while sober.
This is part 2 of the interview with Modern Whore extraordinaire Andrea Werhun (or Verhoon if you nasty!) where we pick up where we left off last time, talking about sex work and the law, decriminalization, personal safety, stripping, and then getting into the stories in her sexy book. Andrea’s been through it all, working with the good the bad and the ugly—facing assault, catcallers, breaches of consent, and having to personally deal with these issues that the law refuses to get involved with. She calls for, like most everyone in the sex worker community, decriminalization of prostitution—not legalization! Sex workers have become good at their profession and do not need legalization to standardize their practices, but do require the law to decriminalize their work, protect them from violence, and provide them safety. Finally, Andrea discusses her book, the stories, the backstories, and future plans for this bubbly, charismatic, and witty writer. We dive into the content of the book, how some of these stories were conceived—like microdosing on LSD—and how they’re meant to enlighten, educate, and reveal that seedy underbelly of society that we all hear only horror stories about.

On this episode I speak with Andrea Werhun, writer of the Modern Whore, a book nearly as difficult to describe in few words as its author—from sassy to sentimental, poetic to smutty, this girl will make you believe in the church of feminine sexuality and having you begging for communion. Andrea opens up about her personal life as a segue to writing the book, having had a shame-free entry into online porn from an early age and discovering her sexuality, to posting nudes online that later haunted her—all of which gave her the courage to own her body and decide without undue duress to enter into sex work, because she wanted to. After visiting her first strip club, Andrea was enamored by the women goddesses owning their bodies on stage, and immediately she knew that’s what she wanted to do. This eventually led her to enter into escorting, which she did for two years and which sets the premise for the book…which we cover in part two of the interview, so stay tuned.

We (Caitlin Cook, Niki Davis, and Róisín Nic Ghearailt) were lucky enough to catch author and former escort Andrea Werhun at the book launch of her new memoir Modern Whore back in March and snag an interview with her afterwards. We're talking all about sex and money, sex work, and rights for sex workers on this eighth episode. Unashamed and unapologetic, this is That Kind of Girl, the podcast where we talk about all the things "nice girls" are not supposed to say in polite conversation.

And, as always, please share your own stories (on sex work or otherwise) by emailing them to thatkindofgirlpodcast@gmail.com.
