This book takes an in-depth look at the relationships exotic dancers have with their regular customers, and explores the limits of using feminist theory to discuss sex work. This is an accessible, revealing, and new look at a perennially intriguing and divisive subject - ideal teaching material for undergraduate courses in a variety of fields.

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
