    A near future where a combination of puritanical America and feminists have taken over the government and outlaw all but missionary sex. Our protagonists are a bunch of sex workers who work in sex clubs. I liked the sex positive nature of the book. I couldn't stand the amount of torture in the book, especially the graphic nature of it. Parts of this were like watching Saw or Hostel. The book is very graphic in its use of both torture and depiction of sex so be warned.

I'm not surprised at all DC decided against publishing it given its corporate overlords. The book felt very preachy as well.

    Sex-positive adventure with a disappointingly simplistic story in a clichéd, underdeveloped dystopia.It's future America, and the moralists have taken over (religion is never explicitly mentioned) - no more sex for pleasure, and especially no more 'perversions' (anything that's not heterosexual, married, missionary position sex).

But then the Party (that's the moralists) crack down on the Dirty Mind and one of the owners is taken away and/or killed.Can the remaining group avenge their leader, free their friends and in general kick the Party in the groin?To start with, I love that the book presents sex workers as people not only doing a job, but people who love doing that job. The whole sex-positive message is to be celebrated.That said, the story, characters and world are sorely lacking. The dystopian world feels simplistic, it's underdeveloped and therefore unconvincing. The characters are flat, and fall back too much on empty sex-positive sloganeering. This was originally 7 issues, and it shows - it draaags halfway through, there's a lot of wheelspinning.The art is done by three different artists, and generally is okay, till the last half of the book, when it dips in quality.In short: love the message, disappointed by the execution.(Received an ARC from Image through Edelweiss)

It's no mistake that one of the best vantage points to view the coming technocapitalist hellscape is from some of capitalism's original discontents: sex workers, queers, and leatherpeople. Horn manages to avoid falling into a trap of being overly didactic by populating her San Francisco with vibrant characters whose decisions are shaped by all-too-real motivations.Really, SFSX is what I wish all of the middle class white feminists who show up to all the protests in Handmaids Tale cosplay would read. As Horn demonstrates in a way Atwood never will, it is and always has been the hookers and queers and women of colour who face the brunt of violent sexual repression - and it is these same outcasts who will and always have been the ones to rise up against it.

    In the all-too-near future, the scrubbing-clean of San Francisco has accelerated; it's no longer just capitalism getting rid of everything insufficiently whitebread, but moralism too, as the grip on American life of the Party tightens. At first I thought, oh, and we can guess which Party that might be, but this is one of the clever things about SFSX – it's picked up on the weasel words and unholy alliances the forces of repression will use. So just as in the late twentieth century the Andrea Dwo In the all-too-near future, the scrubbing-clean of San Francisco has accelerated; it's no longer just capitalism getting rid of everything insufficiently whitebread, but moralism too, as the grip on American life of the Party tightens. At first I thought, oh, and we can guess which Party that might be, but this is one of the clever things about SFSX – it's picked up on the weasel words and unholy alliances the forces of repression will use. So just as in the late twentieth century the Andrea Dworkins and the Mary Whitehouses found common cause in a hatred of pornography (a term to which they were of course happy to apply some of their own extreme stretching), the Party rhetoric here draws on ostensibly leftwing TERFery and SWERFery and general Anti-Sex League bullshit as well as straightforward rightwing censoriousness when it talks about saving the young from 'exploitation'. The story it sets within that? Well, that's a fairly standard dystopian thriller, most of whose beats you can see coming ahead of time: a sexy underground, a lead who thought she'd left it behind for a normal life, a former leader of it twisted into a prominent agent of the evil forces. Think Star Wars with skimpier outfits, and sex toys replacing the lightsabers, and you won't be too far off. What makes it work is the attention to detail which renders the ride so convincing, not just as regards the Party, but in terms of the brittleness outsider scenes display when the external pressure starts to show, or the way a well-off fan can be at once a bother and a godsend for a niche performer. Writer Tina Horn knows this stuff, being a comics newcomer but a veteran sex educator*; other work includes a podcast called Why Are People Into That?!, and accordingly this is a bit of an anomaly among sex-centric comics. Often, they can leave the reader with a very good idea of the creators' own kinks – not that there's anything wrong with that, of course. Whereas here, there's a real care taken to show the breadth of the activities underway at the Dirty Mind, not all of which will be for any individual, but all of which have their devotees – and, of course, their shared enemies.*Though one whose website really needs updating, given it still lists this series as forthcoming from Vertigo. There is, of course, a life-mirroring-art-mirroring-life angle here, because SFSX was a victim of the creeping prudery it depicts. Originally promoted as a Vertigo series, part of their last, doomed relaunch, it was always going to get shredded at an increasingly risk-averse DC, and I'm glad we didn't have to make do with the toned-down version we'd have got there. Instead, after Batman's willy caused sufficient panic amid the upper echelons that the whole Vertigo imprint was among the collateral damage, it's found a new and much more suitable home at Image, and thank goodness (not to mention the good sort of badness) for that.(Edelweiss ARC)----

    This had everything I like about dystopian fiction. The future is plausible enough to be terrifying, and there's a clear need for justice. Really excellent work. The art is fantastic, as are the colors. It's so rare to find a comic where the female characters aren't subject to the male gaze, and I really appreciated the validation of sex workers as actual people instead of plot devices or props, as they are in so many other comics.I received a free eGalley from Edelweiss for review purposes.

    This is “The Handmaid’s Tale” meets “Ocean’s Eleven.” Well, admittedly, that’s a concise pitch-line offering more confusion than information value. Allow me to clarify. This series is set in a dystopia in which morality and sexuality are controlled by the state, and efforts are underway to eliminate any “deviant” sexual activity (i.e. any sexual activity not involving a heterosexual married couple having vaginal intercourse – preferably with a strong procreative intent.) Within that world, it’s This is “The Handmaid’s Tale” meets “Ocean’s Eleven.” Well, admittedly, that’s a concise pitch-line offering more confusion than information value. Allow me to clarify. This series is set in a dystopia in which morality and sexuality are controlled by the state, and efforts are underway to eliminate any “deviant” sexual activity (i.e. any sexual activity not involving a heterosexual married couple having vaginal intercourse – preferably with a strong procreative intent.) Within that world, it’s a heist story. [Some might argue that it’s more a prison break, but because it involves people breaking into a secured facility in order to get others out, I stand by my descriptor. That said, it really combines the two because one of the prisoner’s takes agency to affect escape] The story’s protagonist is a woman named Avory. She once worked a giant sex club / dungeon called “The Dirty Mind” before “the Party” [the conservative guardians of morality] consolidated control. When the Party did come to power, they raided The Dirty Mind. Avory escaped with a client who she’d fallen for, the two got married, and they were trying to live “normal” lives in compliance with the new laws. When this façade falls apart, Avory goes back to her old [kinky] friends seeking help. However, she’s seen as a turncoat by them. They don’t trust her, and they decline to help her. But things change when the Party publicizes its new activities.Because of the nature of comic books / serialized graphic novels, the first thing I feel I need to say is that I found this to be a complete and satisfying story arc. This format often fails in this regard because it’s a challenge to keep an eye on an overall run arc while building that overarching story from component stories [that are truly stories.] Often the end of a volume feels like a speedbump rather than a conclusion. However, that isn’t the case here. That doesn’t mean the story is not left with someplace interesting to go. It is. However, if all one read was this volume, one would experience a self-contained story. In short, I felt Horn [and team] did a great job of balancing “leave them satisfied” with “leave them wanting more.” I also found character development to be well-done. The characters are all developed, unique, and we can see their combination of motivation and internal conflict. Flashbacks are put to good use to give the reader enough insight to see why this gulf exists between Avory and her former best friends. However, these are kept to a few panels (usually at the beginning of each issue) and so they don’t bog the story down. By this point, this probably goes without saying, but in the interest of due diligence: this book is graphically sexual. The artwork and dialogue are explicit. I won’t get into an extended philosophical discussion of whether it’s pornography or erotica. As I said, there is a story, and all of what is shown is in service to that story. That said, nothing is held-back, either. One of the book’s key points is the importance of consent as shown in the contrast between the consensual activities in the club and the “reconditioning” activities carried out by the Party. Long story short, there are some cringe-worthy scenes, at least to laity to sadomasochism. So, if you are sensitive to such matters or are purchasing this for someone who is, buyer beware. I found the story gripping and also thought-provoking. If you are not averse to graphic sexual content, I’d highly recommend it.

In a near-future America, San Francisco has been taken over by some new puritans, who have decided that the biggest thing wrong with society is porn, and the attendant demand on the male ego to match up, or to demand the implausible of the average woman. They've purloined the state's biggest whore house and swingers club for their headquarters, where they're trying to dissuade people from all but the most vanilla, procreation-and-nothing-else, kind of sex life. Our heroine used to be one of the biggest video makers and lash-users in the club, but is now trying to get work there amongst the puritans, joining her husband there to earn enough to move away (what has prevented those in power reaching all America is not discussed). But when he stumbles on what he should not be privy to, the couple are separated – and she'll do whatever it takes to rescue her husband. As will, ultimately, her sex worker colleagues, when they finally find the truth about their prior madam…Several things. You could say the facial recording stuff is needed for the state monitoring of sexuality, and you could also say it's intrusive in making this a more rarefied world than the one we live in. I'm not sure the sci-fi was ultimately needed, for the near-reality of this scenario is certainly strong enough. It convinces with the ideas of those in power, and their success based on what they say is a more egalitarian life is believable. People have picked up on the artwork, and the aesthetic of the book not being the greatest – well, since when did the majority of porn look perfect and ideal? It could always be better (the artwork here, I mean, not porn) but it was in keeping with the ambience of the piece for me. If anything knocked points off the book for me it was the looseness in the final drama, where I failed to get a great sense of the geography of the heist, and the splitting up of the people, looking different to how they were drawn earlier on, made it hard to keep track of who's who. But I think this has to be called a success – it's entertaining, even if you don't agree with me that it's plausible and though-provoking. It's not gratuitous or titillating, but a good, strong mature read.

The heroes in this didn't have to be 'Pretty Woman' so we can see how good they are, and I loved that they are just people who are trying to live their lives with the freedom we say there is. First off, while Avory seems to be the central point character of the story she wasn't my favorite. This doesn;t mean I didn't like Avory, she's driven, strong, and pretty badass but I noticed that unless it is something that directly affects her (or George) her fire suddenly disappears. This is why Casey was my favorite. She seems to be the real driving force behind this group of rag-tag sex workers. When needed she steps up and reminds the others exactly why they are doing this. To me she's the heart of the group. I do wish we got to explore her character more, as I feel we didn't really get too much information during the flashbacks. Sylvia was a absolute legend, if I call Casey the heart than Sylvia would be the head. I really felt her pain regarding Jones, and I love that despite being put in positions that could break her she instead can push it all aside and really do what's right. Nick and Denis were great too but we don't really get too much from them, which saddens me because of *Spoilers*. Denis did have a really cool scene in which we could tell they are pretty kick-ass. I really love the representation in this comic, and the inclusion of a non-binary character which we don't see too often. As far as the story went it was pretty interesting, but I hope we see how exactly The Party came into power, and who the real villains are. Also, all the artwork was AMAZING. It colors of each scene, and the way you can feel the emotions coming off the characters were great. Each artist had different styles so it was great to see the story told in different ways. Overall this was a wild ride and I can't wait to see where they go with this!

The latter monitors and “corrects” people’s sexuality and sexual behaviour. For Avory, and her co-sex-workers at the Dirty Mind, they have lost their livelihood, and passion.

When Avory’s husband is kidnapped for “corrections,” the Dirty Mind squad teams up to find him and their former leader. I really liked the representation in this story - about half of our main characters are POC, which is pretty decent considering a lot of comics don’t bother including POC at all, let alone introducing them as main characters. One of the leads is non-binary, which was refreshing to see since enbys don’t get much representation in media. I really liked that the main characters are just matter-of-factly sex workers. I appreciate Tina Horn avoiding the whole “stripper with a heart of gold" trope, or narrowing in on how sex work is "not feminist" or inherently bad or good or anything. These characters are sex workers for different, and realistic reasons and I kind of like that Horn doesn't focus on their backstories. There’s no discussion of “how empowering it is” to be a sex worker, which also was appreciated.This story is just about sex workers being tough and compassionate, trying to normalize safe sex, whatever your kink. There were a few conversations in the story that felt poignant, empathetic, and well-written. Especially in regards to sexual identity. Overall, I think this series has a lot of potential and I'm really looking forward to seeing what's next for our characters.

However this book is also very graphic; there were many explicit depiction of sex and torture so be warned, because it took me by surprise in the first few pages and made me almost DNF it 😶I’m glad I didn’t though because aside from the graphic nature of the book, I really enjoyed it! The pacing was fast, the stakes were high, and the action was thrilling. I mean, we got Avory stabbing someone with a stiletto within the first chapter! The plot was also full of twists and turn, the ending was totally unexpected. This might be the most mature graphic novel I’ve ever read and it’s worth the read!

In some ways, certain elements feel a little reductive, but the world building is supposed to be this hyper dystopian setting. The main draw for me was the sex positivity told in a dystopian landscape, and as a dystopian setting it felt pretty standard, but I didn't have a problem with that. I think it's so important to see queer women on the pages, sex workers who enjoy the work as well, people celebrating their sexuality, and women portrayed who feel genuine and not objectified. The action felt fast paced and you definitely want to root for them to take the whole system down. In that way the dystopia feels well executed because you definitely want our protagonists to win!

This isn’t an “us-versus-them” topic, this is a conversation that is happening within circles of people who all call themselves “feminist.”That said, I don’t think this story went as deep as it could have, and the time spent showing sex acts on the page could have been better spent developing the world, characters, and themes. Still, SFSX has an intriguing concept, and an interesting-enough storyline, and I appreciate the diverse cast of characters.TW: on-page explicit kinky sex, reference to kink, forced institutionalization, torture, corrective rapeThank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this eARC via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review!

The society in the book definitely reflects our current and not-so-distant future. Our bodies are already being policed, anyone that isn't white, straight, cis, or vanilla sex are already demonized. Incel men are running/ruining things, feeling entitled to sex just because. Certain women shitting all over what feminism is supposed to be.While I liked all of the above, like other reviewers, about the overall plot was a bit meh. I felt like it was screaming 'Queer POC and sex workers are here to save us!'
