Anna Reed was the Canterbury regional coordinator for the New Zealand Prostitutes' Collective from the late 1980s until 2016. Reed, pictured here in the 1980s, talks about why she enjoyed sex work. While many sex workers do not experience pleasure with clients, Reed found it exciting to have sex with different men, and considered that sex work suited her well. She has worked on a number of research projects relating to the sex industry with public-health specialists at the Christchurch School of Medicine, University of Otago.
