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

Our second episode from the anonymous series is a psychological nightmare and lesson on self healing centered around the mind and body.
Today's guest is a photographer in his mid 20's who elects for surgery to improve his vision. The procedure goes awry and he finds himself battling depression and crippling pain for over a year.
The experience leads him to an addiction to klonopin he is forced to overcome. Eventually he seeks healing at an ayahuasca ceremony in Peru but is forced to repeat his trauma when he returns home to New York.
We begin by learning about his journey, then explore how the incident challenges him in an area he least expects it: his sex life and manhood.
The entire process forces him to deal with "The It," an invisible force attacking his humanity by finding cracks in emotional weakness.
Our guest explains how The It manifests itself in your life through physical pain and gives you the task to confront the emotional pain causing you pain.
The first episode of 2017 is all about our guests personal awakening through her sexual revolution. Our guest is anonymous today, but she fully shares her heart and mind. She tells her coming of age story in full to you and the other listeners. Enjoy the trip! - Recorded in East Village, NY
