If you've ever wondered what paying for sex is like, this book definitely is for you.
Along with the prurient interest of so much paid sex in this book, there is also the tension of so many awkward social situations in meeting and bedding all these strangers that he normally wouldn't have the wherewithal to talk to in a bar or something. And then there are all the great conversations with his stunned friends and ex-girlfriends who are trying to wrap their heads around this new dimension in his life. It's a great read for all these reasons, but also for the understated honesty of his artwork: the same eight small panels per page, the great sense of cartoony realism that he captures. Nothing is overblown or amped up, but it is recognizably stylized.
All in all, another great and compelling read from Brown. Make sure you read all the end notes and commentary at the end. Great stuff.
The comic book adventures of a single male in Toronto,Ontario Canada who shamelessly records his experiences with prostitutes. It explores an area that many wonder about but would never discuss.
