Recovery Guide for Sex Workers Anonymous By J.L. Williams
eBook (ePub): $4.99
In August of 1987, the 12-Step program and hotline of "Prostitutes Anonymous" was launched. After five years of researching the new members who were gathering for the first time and... More > talking to each other about what their common experiences were - the 1st edition "Recovery Guide" was published in 1992. However, in 1995, the internet was born and suddenly every computer was blocking anyone from finding them because of adult filters blocking the word "prostitutes". To solve the problem, the program's name was changed to "Sex Workers Anonymous". It wasn't until the group was about 20 years old that "stage 2" recovery issues started becoming obvious. For this reason, it's suggested that new members, and concerned family members, get the 1st edition first that's still published under the original program's name. If one has been out of the sex industry for a while, then the 2nd edition is recommended. This book is due to be released on August 15, 2019 - on their 32nd year anniversary.< Less
