Yesterday, our excellent new partners LitHub, the global literary content aggregator (how sexy does that sound, hmm-hmmmmm yum) posted an exclusive, taken from our just-released issue: Sam George-Allen’s remarkable essay ‘Adult Industry’.
George-Allen remembers her time working at a strip club, and we go with her:
“But the job does not instill in me a love of men. I doubt they realize how feeble they are when they’re in that place, even when they come in, as they do, in packs—I watch men fall in love with me over the course of a night. It’s not like they can hide it, not in a place designed to coax their guard down and their wallets open. I watch them love me and I watch their hearts break when I turn them away and all it is is kind of boring. The only men I like are the ones who are free with their money. Sometimes they tip in fifties all night.”
Sam George-Allen’s essay appears in Issue 26, which we released this week! If you live in Australia there is probably one right just around the corner from you, so go and snag a copy. If you live in not-Australia, buy one here.
Of course, you can always subscribe, wherever you live in this world, and we will immediately pop your copy in the post (and the subsequent three copies of the next three issues of your subscription, too).
Subscribing to the Brow is like joining a club. You become a paid-up member of TLB, and as such you allow and encourage us to keep on doing what we do.
