About me:

I am a white female in my thirties. I was born and bred and currently live and work in South Australia. I am a sex worker.

Because i’m a whore I risk discrimination and harassment so i lead a double life. Because i’m a whore I am a criminal under South Australian law and so i hide my identity.

Because i’m a whore I have a lot to say and i want you to listen.

Because i’m a whore I write this anonymous blog about my job, my life, my thoughts and the stuff that goes on around me.

The stories i tell, the rants i post, are my own, they are real, they tell the story of my life, the people and structures that i engage with and the meanings i make of it all.

I am just one person. But I am not alone. My stories are only mine, but they are not uncommon. If you haven’t heard stories like mine before, you haven’t been asking the right questions.

  1. Thank you for your blog entries, honesty, candour, experiences, thoughts and for just generally being you… a random message to say this distant stranger/fellow sex worker appreciates you sharing this with us and that since moving to Melbourne from Sydney it has helped me whilst I cope with loneliness.. not having many friends and the only solace in my current existence being work right now.

    thank you.

      I have been really thinking about becoming an escort and living a double life. How can I go about on getting started. I am very interested in knowing, and how did you get started.

  2. Eva,

    Thanks for your comment, Im very happy that you are enjoying my blog, Have you heard of Scarlet Alliance? I saw you added me on Facebook, i will inbox you shortly.

  3. Good day
    I stumbled on your blog.
    I believe you are doing something really worthwhile and important

    I have formed a friendship with a sex worker whom I met at that person’s work and have come to know quite well. Nonetheless its a slow journey and there are many walls and layers to slowly work around to gain trust. There is now mutual respect and great bonds of friendship. I just wanted to say that the industry does make it hard for sex workers to have trust in others but with time and patience, I am making good progress here.

    That sex worker and friendship means a lot to me and although we are in completely different lives in every other way, I hope that friendship will continue and develop.

    Thank you again for your blog.

    • Continuation from April 7 entry above. We are still friends after 5 years. She means a lot to me. I hope we will remain friends for a long time.

    Hi there, I just recently discovered your blog.
    I’m a whore too, and I blog. Because I also, have lots of things to say!
    And I admire your courage. I’m in a slightly different possition, because sex work is not illegal in my country. Still whores all over the world have to fight to be able to speak for themselves.

    And from what I can tell from your blog, you’re much more experienced than me, so I’ll read your blog with pleasure ;)

    It looks like I am late to the party but I just found your blog.

    I became good friends with a sex worker.The entire experience was such a shock to me. I was steeped in the societal stereotype that all “whores” were either jaded, badly damaged people or victims. The sex worker I met was an intelligent, funny, very independent woman who was naturally sexual. She choose to be a sex worker for a number of reasons and was comfortable with her decision. She had some scary situations but a lot of it was because she had to operate in the shadows. She also said the only thing she felt “victimized” by was the stigma attached to being an escort.

    The laws around sex work are ridiculous and I think almost everyone in the judicial system knows it, but what politician is going to publicly take up the challenge of dealing with it?Maybe a female politician but for any males it would be political suicide.

Your thoughts please?
