Earlier we heard from a reader who solicits prostitutes. Here’s an email from the other side of the transaction:
I consider myself a feminist and I also have worked as a sex worker. The two are not mutually exclusive. I have a college degree, but I had a job I hated that was sucking the life out of me. As something of a whim, I decided to try sex work. I was good at it and it was fun. I did not have a pimp or work for an agency. I got clients using Craigslist, back when they had an “erotic services” section. Most of my clients became regulars, so I only occasionally needed to put an ad out. I kept my ads to an absolute minimum to avoid potential exposure to law enforcement stings.
