#readingwomenreadingchallenge prompt 12: a woman who inspires

It may seem odd to claim a camgirl is inspirational but I think any woman who lives her life with authenticity is inspirational. Mazzei did what she did well and with great strength. She did what she needed to do for her own well-being. and when it no longer served her greater need, she stopped doing it. That what she was doing was sex work does not minimise her strength. In fact, I think it enhances it. To do what you require despite society’s judgement is truly brave – and inspirational.

Mazzei is funny and biting and this memoir very accessible. I did find some sections in which her clients’ conversations were recited a little long-winded but all in all – an interesting look into the life of a camgirl and that of her clients.
