By: Shawna Kenney (Author), Anne Cleary (Editor), Iris Berry (Editor), Jeffrey Everette (Illustrator), 2023, Paperback

I Was a Teenage Dominatrix is the true story of one woman’s quest for self-education, in academia and beyond. As the reader follows a low income punk rock grrrl into college under the crushing weight of capitalism, the coming-of-age confessional takes outrageous, humorous and moving turns, leaving the reader with plenty to ponder about modern day relationships, shame and self-actualization. Shawna Kenney wrote a sex work memoir before the term ‘sex work’ was commonplace, unwittingly becoming part of what the New York Times dubbed the ‘sex work literati’ of the early 2000s.

The book has enjoyed two prior US printings, translations abroad, and options for film. Out of print since 2012,
I Was a Teenage Dominatrix enjoys a new incarnation, thanks to popular demand and Punk Hostage Press. A new cover, new chapters, a “where are they now?” of beloved characters, and a foreword from the author all allow us to revisit this 90s cult classic through a modern-day lens.
