Event description
What is a ‘courtesan’? How is she (or he) different from a ‘prostitute’? Has the way society views the sex industry changed over time?

About this Event

Gerrie Lim is the prolific author of Invisible Trade: High Class Sex for Sale in Singapore; Invisible Trade II: Secret Lives & Sexual Intrigue in Singapore; and Singapore Rebel: Searching for Annabel Chong. Nobody in Singapore is better suited to the discussion and exploration of our sexual mores and taboos, our hidden inhibitions, and the way we view workers in the sex trade - especially those who make a deliberate choice to join it.

Meihan Boey is the author of the Messiah Virus, whose lead character is a male courtesan; and holds a Masters in History. She has been fascinated with the idea of the courtesan throughout history, from the ancient geisha to the modern mistress, from Madame du Pompadour to Cora Pearl.

Join us for a scintillating night of candid conversation! Books by both authors will be availble for purchase on the night.
