This book visually tells the journey of Lisette, a sex worker in The Netherlands. For the past 12 years, Lisette has committed her life to sex work. In fact, she has spent the previous eight years serving clients with disabilities and people with special needs who are often unable to discuss sexual concerns.
She wants them to experience moments of intimate friendship. In contact with her client, it is all about intimacy in all its manifestations, such as a good conversation, sharing emotions, a touch, eating together, going out, having fun. It's like they're dating for a short time. Often there is also sex involved, but sometimes not. Not all of her clients need that. It's going the way it is.
