Our guest today is hiding a secret. She's a 23 year old emerging artist and tells people she is an archivist for an artist to fund her globetrotting lifestyle. She tells others she is a dominatrix. But she's secretly harboring her life as a sex worker.
Historically sex workers have been mocked, ridiculed, shunned, glamorized, and put in boxes. Often only the most vocal workers and activists are heard and dominate the conversation. We decided to share a brief and uncensored account of one young and quiet escort in New York to tell us what she has gone through.
Her mentor who started her career warned her: "you are going to lose your soul." We hear as she explores her new reality and shares her personal life adventure while relating to her soul.
She opens up to us about her life and the thoughts she hasn't been able to express with many others. She sifts through where she's been, where she's at, and where she may or may not be going as well as the intricate emotions attached to balancing her work and life.
She discusses the pain she feels she deserves, earning money, being wrapped in drugs, festishes, loneliness and so much more. - Recorded in Brooklyn, NY
