MEDIA REVIEWS

'From the vantage point of both scholar and erotic dancer, Danielle Egan takes us inside the world of the erotic dance club. At once a consumer space, a sex site, a work environment, and an emotional and psychoanalytic goldmine, Egan brings this fascinating environment to life and our understanding of erotic labor to a whole new level.' - Juliet Schor, Department of Sociology, Boston College, and author of The Overspent American

' Wielding a brave new path through the contentious fields of misinformation and polemical debate about exotic dance specifically, and sex work more generally, Egan weaves a sophisticated but accessible theoretical and ethnographic tapestry. I highly recommend Dancing for Dollars and Paying for Love to scholars, students, and readers who are hungry for an informative and compelling read.' - Kathryn Hausbeck, Department of Sociology, University of Nevada

'Danielle Egan 'hooks' the reader through a strikingly intimate narrative constructed from her scholarship, her dancer experience and from the voices of her co-dancers and their regulars. A blue-print for 'the doing of sociology' for teachers and students alike ... groundbreaking in studies of sexuality." - Gail Hawkes, University of New England, Australia.' - Gail Hawkes, University of New England, Australia
