WORKING FOR THE MAN IN HUFFPOST

"It’s more than just tits and ass. Yana’s photos illustrate the more relaxed side of harlotry; free of any pimp slaps or police cuffs, as well a greater peace of mind from regular testing for STDs. Her work highlights the benefit of progressive policies, which can introduce dignity to an impure profession while doing a service to society by zapping flesh-peddling predators off the streets.”
