´Before becoming a courtesan, I worked by the hour providing both outcalls and incalls. Paying For It brought back a lot of memories of those early days and I found myself smiling and at times laughing at the universal realities of paid sex at this level of the profession. While Chester´s book doesn´t illuminate other types of prostitution such as high-end escorting and the rarified world of courtesans, it is an accurate and honest representation of middle-class prostitution from the average client´s perspective. The reader would do well to read the afterword and appendices where Chester engages popular arguments against prostitution with clarity, logic and impeccable attention to detail. While debating for the decriminalization of prostitution on national television the last twenty years, I would have welcomed Chester Brown´s testament to the human qualities which define most clients of prostitutes as well as his grasp of the negative impact both criminalization and legalization have on the lives of prostitutes. Thank you Chester for your courage in braving the prejudices pertaining to men who pay for sex. If sex workers are ever to claim their human rights, it will not be without the support of their clients. May other clients follow in your footsteps by stepping out of the shadows of shame and into an empowered claim for our sexual bill of rights.´
