Yesterday, I met with someone from my Quaker meeting to talk about my decision to go into sex work. She’s very concerned for me health and safety (I am too!), but she totally gets it. I was so worried when I told my meeting that they would be disapproving, but they’ve been so caring! She was encouraging me to get my support network in order, which is a kick in the pants I definitely need right now. The best part is that she has an MBA and we talked through my business plan. I was so proud that I could answer most of her questions and she said I was going good market research!
Today I caught up with a mentor from college who wanted to know about my plan. I told her about what appeals to me about sex work (setting my own hours! taking as many breaks as I need! working with people!) and about the support I was seeking, and she let me know that I can call on her for support as well.
I’m feeling so blessed to have such caring and supportive people in my life! Now I need to sit down and write my damn ad text.
Had a brief, tense conversation with the roommate tonight about my decision to go into sex work. The short version? He disapproves. He thinks I’m risking my health too much. Now I’m afraid that if I ever have a violent client or incident he’ll just say “I told you so” and I won’t get any support from him. Going into a whole new vocation is stressful enough; I don’t need his disapproval on top of it! God, I just want someone to hold my hand and tell me I can handle it.
