Are you familiar with Karley Sciortino? Maybe you've read the sex column she writes for Vogue.com. Or seen the video she made for Vice, in which Sciortino gets down with a male sex doll on camera. Or maybe it was the decidedly NC-17 episode of the Netflix series Easy, where she plays a prostitute. Sciortino's work bridges memoir, performance art, investigative journalism, social activism—and gifts her audience with an unwavering dedication to firsthand experience.
