Summary This edited collection showcases innovative, up and coming researchers work in the field of sex work studies across labour/work and relationships. This research is pushing the boundaries of the subject, asking new questions, carving new methodological terrain, and contributing new ideas and empirical findings to the existing literature. Drawing on sociology, criminology, media studies, social and health policy, law and socio-legal studies, the chapters reflect a range of new topics in the sex work studies literature such as religious readings, porn workers and their interactions with fans; romantic relationships, and humour at work. Studies are drawn from Europe, South America, Turkey, Ireland, New Zealand and the USA. This book speaks to academics across the social sciences and humanities who are interested in sex work studies. Teela Sanders is Professor of Criminology at the University of Leicester, UK. Sitting on the borders of criminology and sociology, she explores the inter-relationship between human sexuality and socio-legal structures. Kathryn McGarry is Assistant Professor in Social Policy at Maynooth University, Ireland. Kathryns research interests include gender, risk and social justice, sexuality and the law and critical feminist methodologies. Paul Ryan is Assistant Professor in Sociology at Maynooth University, Ireland. His research interests are within the sociology of the family and personal life, sexuality, and the law
