[09:18] True Porn Clerk Stories

The other day I realized, as a cold claw of pure fear squeezed my frantic heart, that I have been working as a video clerk for ten months.

This is a job that I took on a temporary basis for just a month or two until freelancing picked back up and I got my financial shit in order.

Ten months.

It has been a test of patience, humility, and character.

It has been a lesson in dealing with all humankind, including their personal bodily fluids.

It has been $6.50 an hour.

Thus begins Ali Davis's True Porn Clerk Stories, the engaging diary of an intelligent, open-minded, sex-positive young woman trying to come to grips with the absurd realities of human sexuality, as viewed from behind the counter of an adult video store. Written with equal amounts of heart and grit, Ali's diary is an absolute must-read. Brava, Ms. Davis!
