Most people I’ve talked with seem to associate sex work with pimps, human trafficking, and drug addicts.
It’s this stigma that propels people to inform me without provocation that they ‘never would have known’ what I do for work based on my appearance and along with how I carry myself.
People also like to reassure me that they ‘don’t judge me’, even though I do not display any signs of guilt surrounding what I do; they assume two things: I’m obviously ashamed of sex work and am embarrassed to tell them (FYI, I’m not), and secondly, that I actually care about their personal views towards sex work in addition to me being a sex worker (FYI, I don’t).
With this being said, my own viewpoint regarding sex work is intrsincally good – though I do strongly believe it must be done for the right reasons along with proper ethics maintained as one would with any type of profession.
In regards to the dontaions requested by sex workers, I don’t view an SP’s rates as demeaning to a woman, nor do I see it as an indication of her worth as a woman. Instead, the rate to me reflects her quality of service. Like at any other job, your wages are typically indicative of how seasoned you are, your skill set, quality of service, etc.. When people express their disdain with the idea of “putting a price on my body/myself/my worth”, I explain to them that the rates I set are not what I deem myself worth, but rather what I feel is fair and appropriate based on the length of time I’ve spent in this industry in relation to the level of service I provide.
Regardless of whether others agree or not on my personal viewpoint, the bottom line is that fundamentally, every woman is priceless. Although upon face value this industry may seem degrading by placing a monetary value on women, it isn’t done in a way that determines my worth as human being.
How I Started Into Sex Work
In all honesty, I’m not a fan of this question. I relate to Gira Grant’s opinion on why people ask this, in which she feels that essentially it’s to determine how to view a sex worker: either as a victim or as an empowered woman. My start in the sex industry is personal to me and I can never change it. Instead, what has changed is my views on it and my reasons for continuing in it, which I can admit are much more healthy and less calamitous than when I first started.
What I Enjoy About Sex Work
My favourite aspect would have to be the process of building a connection with my clients; the connection established between myself and each new client within our first session will always determine the development of our relationship.
Paying attention to their likes and dislikes; their wants and needs; their personality traits; their mannerisms, which will dictate their comfort level; all these things are integral to forming a positive connection with my clients. Simply, I enjoy getting to know people and learning what I can do to make each session the most enjoyable for both of us.
