Adriana E. Ramírez, 2015 PEN-Fusion Awarding-Winning Author of DEAD BOYS says of this work: "As playful as it is shocking, sexy, and woke, Christina Springer’s The Splooge Factory invites the reader into the daily grind of sex work. And while it takes on race, culture, desire, and power, it also pushes the reader to rethink their own expectations of sex, the body, and the business of wanting."
In The Poetry Question, reviewer Christopher Margolin writes: "Christina Springer’s The Splooge Factory might sound like and be about the price and cost of sex, it’s also about learning the limits of your own power, lessening the breadth of what you’re willing to take, and no longer be stripped of self, pride, sexuality, and so much more."
The author is an Alt.Black artist who uses text, performance, video, and other visual expressions to communicate what the space between molecules in the air wish for you to know. Her work has been published widely in a variety of poetry journals, including Obsidian, Eyedrum Periodically, The Drunken Boat, and Callaloo. She was the longest-reigning Pittsburgh Poetry Slam champion.
