The sad truth is that there are a lot of aspects of my work that are dishonest. I dishonestly use a false name, I dishonestly pretend to be turned on by clients or activities that hold little appeal for me, I dishonestly portray myself as ecstatically happy even when I’m in the throes of severe depressive episodes.

I understand why Daniel is uncomfortable with my work–it is a tragic failing of most men that they want to own the women they love–but that doesn’t make it any easier.

This is a far cry from all the time I wasted in middle school, waiting to be the last girl in the bathroom so no one would hear me pee. More
I know other women have found partners who accept and even encourage their participation in all aspects of the sex industry, but for better or worse, the man I have chosen either can’t or doesn’t want to accept anything but the bare minimum of physical contact with my clients. More
Sex work can be an incredibly isolating profession. In a world where our work is at the very least frowned upon, if not directly criminalized, it’s extremely difficult to find support. Even relatively understanding civilian friends tend to be unable to truly relate to the difficulties of life as a sex worker. Too often, the solution to a complaint about work is, “Well, if you hate it so much, why don’t you quit?” More
I lived in my cozy little sex worker-friendly utopia for quite a while before I realized that all was not just “rights not rescue” hashtags and descriptions of the harm of stigma that spanned several tweets. There was a dark side to sex worker Twitter, and it wasn’t in the small divisions and little tiffs between the anti-capitalists and the libertarians or the misandrists and women who truly, deeply love men. The dark side of sex worker Twitter is caused entirely by the frequent invasion by sex worker exclusionary radical feminists (SWERFs) and trans exclusionary radical feminists (TERFs). More
“Why are you here?” the woman at the desk asked.
“We were supposed to make videos,” I told her, “there wasn’t any escorting mentioned at all.”
“Well,” said the woman, “we don’t make videos here, so I don’t know what to tell you.” More
There are a lot of myths surrounding the sexuality of whores. Everyone seems to assume we’re either nymphos or frigid, over-fucked to the point where we no longer have any interest in unpaid recreational sex. While I’m sure there are people who fit into these categories, I’ve never met any of them. More
Though I enjoy my life as a sex worker, I know there are people who do not. Nevertheless, I felt shock and sadness upon meeting an unhappy, alcoholic hooker. More

I’ve been really depressed lately.
It’s a combination of factors, huge (and hugely stressful) life changes, out-of-whack brain chemicals, and general malaise. I’m burned out, but this isn’t the sex worker burnout I’ve written about before, in fact, when it comes to garden-variety burnout, sex work is one of the best coping tools I have. More
I know, I’m a little shocked at myself, too. More
