Strip Show by Katherine Liepe-Levinson Book Resume:

This book offers an account of an unprecedented North American study of contemporary female and male strip shows. It particularly focuses on the contradictory sex roles, cultural positions, and performance practices of 'straight' strip shows during their second heyday in the early 1990s. Katherine Liepe-Levinson's research took her to over seventy different strip bars, clubs, theatres and sex emporiums ranging from elaborate lap-dancing and couch-dancing 'gentlemen's' clubs in New York, Houston, and San Francisco; to Peoria's onetime duplex cabaret where women strip for men downstairs, and men for women upstairs; to the nightclubs of Montreal where female and male performers displayed the 'Full Monty'. Liepe-Levinson's intriguing, comprehensive study concentrates on the cultural and theatrical elements of the strip shows themselves including the geographic locations and interior designs of the clubs, the choreography and costumes of the dancers and the all-important participation of the audience. She draws upon a variety of methodologies as well as interviews with performers to explore how the strip show's cultural and theatrical aspects simultaneously uphold and break traditional sex roles. Her findings readily complicate several of the most prominent and prevalent theories about sexual representation, gender and desire.

THE ILLICIT GAME by Mango Lane Boy Book Resume:

This is no Cinderella story, it's thought-provoking THE ILLICIT GAME Loosely based on the story of Lanny and Nicole Donovan, The Illicit Game is an odyssey chronicling the rise and fall of their booming multi-million-dollar cocaine and prostitution business. Lanny has come a long way since his days as a paperboy. It all started in the ‘80s, with his Colombian girlfriend Maria. These days, he’s an advocate for legalizing the world’s oldest profession, prostitution. It’s his street name, “Junior,” that’s on people’s lips when it comes to cocaine. He’s worked hard to become a quiet kingpin, standing in the midst of two lucrative illicit businesses. Some of the people who called him “nigger” and “jungle bunny” all those years ago now unknowingly line his pockets with cash. Lanny can be seen rubbing elbows with local high rollers on any given night of the week, and always with a beautiful girl by his side. But the rules are changing. Lanny knows how to adapt, but his partner in crime may be another story. From the moment he met Maria, Lanny knew he was on to something. When call-girls Maria, Frosty, Emilie and Nicole transform themselves from mediocre sex workers to the city’s most intoxicating, sought-after escorts, leaving clients breathless— and penniless—from their potent spells; painted lips, long lacquered nails, high heels, and condoms a few tools of the trade to boot. Lanny suspects he has met the one. Nicole knows all the tricks of the trade. Or so she thinks. This is no Cinderella story, it’s thought-provoking. The Illicit Game shamelessly delves into the naked truth, playing homage to the city’s cocaine and prostitution scene through colorful characters and provocative culture. One, for detail, Lanny places language and lifestyle at the forefront. Don’t be fooled, this story comes straight from the seedy underworld, and provides insight. It dangerously provokes whilst addressing the complex and volatile cocaine trade. The Illicit Naked Truth reveals the naked truth behind the ever- evolving illicit sex industry clients, emotion, passion, and money. Investigators discovered to their woe, Lanny ran his territory with a tight fist. Respected and admired by most, hated by a few. Now divorced from both business and wife, here’s his side of the story.

When Flesh Becomes Word by Bradford K. Mudge Book Resume:

When Flesh Becomes Word collects nine different examples of British libertine literature that appeared before 1750. Three of these--The School of Venus (1680), Venus in the Cloister (1725), and A Dialogue Between a Married Lady and a Maid (1740)--are famous "whore dialogues," dramatic conversations between an older, experienced woman and a younger, inexperienced maid. Previously unavailable to the modern reader, these dialogues combine sex education, medical folklore, and erotic literature in a decidedly proto-pornographic form. This edition presents other important examples of libertine literature, including bawdy poetry, a salacious medical treatise, an irreverent travelogue, and a criminal biography. The combination of both popular and influential texts presented in this edition provides an accessible introduction to the variety of material available to eighteenth-century readers before the publication of John Cleland's Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure in 1749.

Pimps Up, Ho's Down by T. Denean Denean Sharpley-Whiting Book Resume:

2007 Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association Emily Toth Award Pimps Up, Ho’s Down pulls at the threads of the intricately knotted issues surrounding young black women and hip hop culture. What unravels for Tracy D. Sharpley-Whiting is a new, and problematic, politics of gender. In this fascinating and forceful book, Sharpley-Whiting, a feminist writer who is a member of the hip hop generation, interrogates the complexities of young black women's engagement with a culture that is masculinist, misogynistic, and frequently mystifying. Beyond their portrayal in rap lyrics, the display of black women in music videos, television, film, fashion, and on the Internet is indispensable to the mass media engineered appeal of hip hop culture, the author argues. And the commercial trafficking in the images and behaviors associated with hip hop has made them appear normal, acceptable, and entertaining - both in the U.S. and around the world. Sharpley-Whiting questions the impacts of hip hop's increasing alliance with the sex industry, the rise of groupie culture in the hip hop world, the impact of hip hop's compulsory heterosexual culture on young black women, and the permeation of the hip hop ethos into young black women's conceptions of love and romance. The author knows her subject from the inside. Coming of age in the midst of hip hop's evolution in the late 1980s, she mixed her graduate studies with work as a runway and print model in the 1990s. Her book features interviews with exotic dancers, black hip hop groupies, and hip hop generation members Jacklyn “Diva” Bush, rapper Trina, and filmmaker Aishah Simmons, along with the voices of many “everyday” young women. Pimps Up, Ho’s Down turns down the volume and amplifies the substance of discussions about hip hop culture and to provide a space for young black women to be heard.

Poker's Strangest Hands by Graham Sharpe Book Resume:

Romping through crooked games, dodgy players, exotic venues and incredible hands, 'Poker's Strangest Hands' celebrates the strange history of Poker's most celebrated tournament, its World Championship event and the characters who have graced it with their presence, compiles some of the strangest things said about the game and fully records the details of the strangest Poker Year yet, 2006. The Poker world is divided between those who believe the game to be the most skilled contest ever devised, and those who believe that success in the game relies on pure luck. Sharpe's thorough excavations through long forgotten archives of the game have uncovered the first ever Poker cheat, who was literally making a spectacle of himself in 1829; has unearthed the game which reportedly lasted for 24 years; exposed the US President who gambled away the White House crockery; and discovered that a certain member of the Royal family was very much amused by Poker. Whatever your view this book will appeal to the novice player who can barely tell his flops from his nuts, and equally to the connoisseur of the subtleties of Poker who has developed and matured his or her skills over many years.

Sex and Leisure by Diana C. Parry,Corey W. Johnson Book Resume:

This book uses the emerging and cutting-edge area of leisure research to highlight the importance of sexuality and sexual activity and its relevance to leisure studies. It brings to the fore some complex issues associated with this topic using a range of substantive, epistemological, theoretical and methodological approaches. Drawing on international scholarship, the book examines sexuality from multiple, and at times, competing directions, exploring the continuum of sex from work through to carnal pleasure, and across specific sexual practices including BDSM, pornography, stripping, and sex work. Drawing on critical, feminist, queer, and post theoretical perspectives, the book charts a new direction for leisure studies and sex research, including diverse understandings of leisure practice, sex positivity, fringe and deviant sex practices. Critically, the book moves beyond merely establishing sex as a leisure pursuit to focusing on the compelling and complex intersections between sexuality and leisure. This is fascinating reading for any student or researcher with an interest in leisure, sexuality, gender, cultural studies or sociology.

Do you ever wonder what’s going on in a man’s mind? Do you keep getting into bad relationships with the wrong type of men? Has Mr Luke Warm got you feeling like Ms Justine Case? Have you ever wondered why a man who loves you would cheat on you? There are millions of smart, successful, beautiful women out there who are making disastrous relationship decisions. Ladies sure love horoscopes but seem to have a problem seeing the signs. Many of them don’t realise the mistakes they’re making, nor understand the psyche of the average man. “Lying Fully Clothed: Exposing the Naked Truth About Men” offers an unadulterated, yet hilarious insight into the mind of a player from the viewpoint of someone who’s been on both sides; the player and the played. In this book, you will find out the plethora of tactics that a man will use in order to cheat on a woman or just keep her on the side as a “link”. On top of this, you will discover what a man truly wants and how you can capture the one that’s right for you. Stimulate a man’s body and you may have him for the night; stimulate a man mentally and you may have him for life. Dear Rob is an author who uses history, anthropology, sociology, his quirkiness, and the fact he has been that man you’ve pulled your hair out for, to convey a hard-hitting message to unveil the shroud that covers many women’s eyes. However, if you’re looking for a man to complete you, you’ve missed the whole point.

Boston has always been known for its stiff character. So how did this great New England city become home to one of the largest and most notorious adult entertainment districts in the nation? In this expertly crafted history, veteran reporter Stephanie Schorow teases out the issues that created this controversial neighborhood, giving voice to the players who sought to tame or profit from the sleaze snaking its way through Boston. At turns comic and tragic, Schorow introduces us to the politicians, exotic dancers, and wise guys, and residents brought together by the adult entertainment district—a five-acre neighborhood the city engineered to contain the very porno plague it wanted to eliminate. (Meet the nun-turned-attorney who advocated for the First Amendment rights of adult bookstores, a dancer called “the thinking man's stripper,” and Boston's unofficial city censor.) For these people and thousands of others, the Combat Zone is more than a memory—it was a life-altering adventure.

Naked Truth by Judith Lynne Hanna Book Resume:

Across America, strip clubs have come under attack by a politically aggressive segment of the Christian Right. Using plausible-sounding but factually untrue arguments about the harmful effects of strip clubs on their communities, the Christian Right has stoked public outrage and incited local and state governments to impose onerous restrictions on the clubs with the intent of dismantling the exotic dance industry. But an even larger agenda is at work, according to Judith Lynne Hanna. In Naked Truth, she builds a convincing case that the attack on exotic dance is part of the activist Christian Right’s “grand design” to supplant constitutional democracy in America with a Bible-based theocracy. Hanna takes readers onstage, backstage, and into the community and courts to reveal the conflicts, charges, and realities that are playing out at the intersection of erotic fantasy, religion, politics, and law. She explains why exotic dance is a legitimate form of artistic communication and debunks the many myths and untruths that the Christian Right uses to fight strip clubs. Hanna also demonstrates that while the fight happens at the local level, it is part of a national campaign to regulate sexuality and punish those who do not adhere to Scripture-based moral values. Ultimately, she argues, the naked truth is that the separation of church and state is under siege and our civil liberties—free speech, women’s rights, and free enterprise—are at stake.

Two Decades Naked by Leigh Hopkinson Book Resume:

For fans of Hooked by Samantha X and In My Skin by Kate Holden. Leigh Hopkinson was the least likely person to become a stripper but after spending two decades naked, she realised it was her career - and her life. When Leigh Hopkinson was a university student in Christchurch she worked at a succession of low-paying jobs that paid the rent and fit in around her degree. None of them fit so well, however, as stripping. She figured it couldn't be that difficult - she was just going to dance on stage in front of a bunch of strangers. She'd show them a bit of skin, but the gig wasn't going to last that long. Or so she imagined. While stripping was harder than Leigh thought it would be, she hadn't counted on it being so exhilarating - or lucrative. So when she moved to Melbourne and needed to make a living, the lure of her old job was strong. The world of the strip club had become familiar, even reassuring, though some of the people she met during the course of her job didn't exactly give her faith in the future of humanity. Over the course of Leigh's career, she learnt a lot about other people and even more about herself, and the result is a story that delves into a world that not everyone visits but everyone finds fascinating.

Citizen Machiavelli by Mark Hulliung Book Resume:

Machiavelli has been viewed as the forerunner of the humanists of our day, liberals and socialists, who have discovered that moral ends sometimes require immoral means. Against this interpretation, Mark Hulliung argues that Machiavelli’s “humanism,” was rooted in classical notions of grandeur and greatness, and that his prime reason for admiring the ancient Roman republic was that it conquered the world. In short, Machiavelli was at his most Machiavellian precisely when he voiced his “civic humanism.” Hulliung argues that Machiavelli’s embrace of fraud and violence cannot be justified by patriotism or a professed concern with the common good. He indicts Machiavelli’s use and abuse of history in the service of his cynical agenda—the quest for power. Hulliung sees Machiavelli as a republican imperialist, embracing the heroic pagan virtues and consciously subverting the humanistic tradition of Cicero, and the religious morality of Christianity, with an intentionally skewed interpretation of republican Rome. By inverting the Stoical and Christian elements of the classics, Machiavelli made the humanistic tradition give birth to Machiavellism, its terrible child. Hulliung’s thesis is convincing, and his book is a valuable contribution to the debate on Machiavellian thought.

This was bad news for Charles because the Scots had defeated him just four years ago, so he looked to Ireland and France for help. In order to land French troop ships he needed to control the southern coast, so he sent an army under Prince Maurice to make that so. Maurice thought the taking of the port of Lyme would be a job done before breakfast. Meanwhile, down in the town Robert Blake was waiting for him, as he had waited for Maurice’s brother Rupert, in Bristol’s northern forts. About the Author Skye Smith is my pen name. In 1630 some of my Manchester Puritan ancestors sailed away to Massachusetts on one of Robert Rich's ships. The Pistoleer is a series of historical adventure novels set in Britain in the 1640's. I was encouraged to write them by fans of my Hoodsman series. This is the ninth in the series, and you should read at least the first novel 'HellBurner' before you read this book because it sets the characters and scene for the entire series. The sequence of the books follows the time-line of the Republic of Great Britain. The chapter headings identify the dates and places. The Appendix gives historical insight in the form of an FAQ.

Two Decades Naked by Leigh Hopkinson Book Resume:

For fans of Hooked by Samantha X and In My Skin by Kate Holden. Leigh Hopkinson was the least likely person to become a stripper but after spending two decades naked, she realised it was her career - and her life. When Leigh Hopkinson was a university student in Christchurch she worked at a succession of low-paying jobs that paid the rent and fit in around her degree. None of them fit so well, however, as stripping. She figured it couldn't be that difficult - she was just going to dance on stage in front of a bunch of strangers. She'd show them a bit of skin, but the gig wasn't going to last that long. Or so she imagined. While stripping was harder than Leigh thought it would be, she hadn't counted on it being so exhilarating - or lucrative. So when she moved to Melbourne and needed to make a living, the lure of her old job was strong. The world of the strip club had become familiar, even reassuring, though some of the people she met during the course of her job didn't exactly give her faith in the future of humanity. Over the course of Leigh's career, she learnt a lot about other people and even more about herself, and the result is a story that delves into a world that not everyone visits but everyone finds fascinating.

Bare by Elisabeth Eaves Book Resume:

It began when she was a teenager with an awareness of her body and the reaction other people had to it. It continued with the realization that women’s bodies often gave them a strange power over men. As an adult, it became a fascination with professional sex workers, leading to a plunge into their world. And when Elisabeth Eaves left the world of peep shows and private dancers for the more socially acceptable career of international journalism, she found she could not put that fascination behind her. Her experiences had left her with too many questions and too few answers. So she returned to the world she had left behind. Now, in this candid and insightful book, she recounts her firsthand experience of stripping and gives us a new understanding of women’s sexuality and contemporary sexual mores. Bare follows the author and her fellow dancers through Seattle strip clubs and bachelor parties, exploring in riveting detail Eaves’s own motivations and behavior, as well as those of her coworkers, as they make their way through the sometimes exhilarating, often disturbing world of stripping. Grounded in an understanding of the intricate dynamics of exchanging sexual services for money, Eaves’s narrative examines the ways in which the work affects the women: how they negotiate the slippery boundaries between their jobs and their “real” lives; how their personal relationships are altered; how they reconcile themselves—or don’t—to the stereotypes that surround their profession; whether the work is exploitative or empowering or both. In its unstinting honesty, Bare demands that we take a closer look at the way sexuality is viewed in our culture; what, if anything, constitutes “normal” desire; the ethics of swapping money—or anything else—for sex; and how women and men navigate the perilous contradictions and double standards that make up today’s socio-sexual conventions. The stories Eaves tells—outrageous, funny, sad, and deeply affecting—provide an engrossing and unforgettable look at a group of women who have a lot to reveal, not only about one of America’s largest and most taboo industries, but about the restrictions, joys, and hypocrisies of the world in which we all live.

Stripping, Sex, and Popular Culture by Catherine M. Roach Book Resume:

At the heart of Stripping, Sex, and Popular Culture lies a very personal story, of author Catherine Roach's response to the decision of her life-long best friend to become an exotic dancer. Catherine and Marie grew up together in Canada and moved to the USA to enroll in PhD programs at prestigious universities. For various reasons, Marie left her program and instead chose to work as a stripper. The author, at first troubled and yet fascinated by her friend's decision, follows Marie's journey into the world of stripping as an observer and analyst. She finds that this world raises complex questions about gender, sexuality, fantasy, feminism, and even spirituality. Moving from first hand interviews with dancers and others, the book broadens into a provocative and accessible examination of the current popularity of "striptease culture," with sex-saturated media imagery, thongs gone mainstream, and stripper aerobics at your local gym. Stripping, Sex, and Popular Culture scrutinizes the naked truth of a lucrative industry whose norms are increasingly at the center of contemporary society.

The Philosopher’s New Clothes by Nickolas Pappas Book Resume:

This book takes a new approach to the question, "Is the philosopher to be seen as universal human being or as eccentric?". Through a reading of the Theaetetus, Pappas first considers how we identify philosophers – how do they appear, in particular how do they dress? The book moves to modern philosophical treatments of fashion, and of "anti-fashion". He argues that aspects of the fashion/anti-fashion debate apply to antiquity, indeed that nudity at the gymnasia was an anti-fashion. Thus anti-fashion provides a way of viewing ancient philosophy’s orientation toward a social world in which, for all its true existence elsewhere, philosophy also has to live.
