Event Details

Maggie McNeill was a librarian in suburban New Orleans, but after divorce economic necessity spurred her to take up sex work; from 1997 to 2006 she worked first as a stripper, then as a call girl and madam. 

She eventually married her favorite client, retired, and moved to a ranch in the rural Upper South. There she writes a daily blog called “The Honest Courtesan”, which examines the realities, myths, history, lore, science, philosophy, art, and every other aspect of prostitution; she also reports sex work news, critiques the way her profession is treated in the media and by governments, and is frequently consulted by academics and journalists as an expert on the subject.


Maggie will be sharing her knowledge and experience on how prostitution laws undermine liberty for everyone. 

Her articles have been published on Reason.com (The Mythical Invasion of the Super Bowl Hookers) and in Radley Balko’s Washington Post blog (Lies, Damned Lies and Sex Worker Statistics).

About

 

Liberty on the Rocks is a non-partisan, social and educational organization that seeks to unite individuals who desire liberty: with the goal of promoting activism, education and encouragement to those who aspire to gain freedom in America.
Mission
Liberty on the Rocks is a non-partisan, non-profit, social and educational organization that seeks to unite individuals who desire liberty: with the goal of promoting activism, education and encouragement to those who aspire to gain freedom in America.

We pledge to further the study and discussion of America’s founding principles, thus encouraging increased awareness, communication and action. Through our established local networks, leaders will work to unite, educate and activate supporters of freedom with the ultimate goal of enhancing their ability to share these enduring values with others.
General Information
Liberty on the Rocks is currently working to assist individuals with establishing local social networks aimed at uniting liberty-oriented thinkers within their community. These social clubs also focus on providing a forum that encourages individuals to network with local freedom-based organizations and activists. Liberty on the Rocks will work with all liberty-oriented groups to help connect them with potential students, volunteers and/or members, so they may better expose their message and the educational information they produce.

The overall purpose of these liberty clubs is to establish a welcoming, inclusive environment where individuals are free to share ideas, gain and disseminate knowledge and to learn new opportunities for becoming better informed and involved. Establishing a social environment such as this is the first step towards creating a powerful group of individuals motivated to work together to promote freedom and individual liberty.
