Exploring Our Views on Sex Work

As we go through life, our views and opinions can be shaped by a variety of factors such as what we read, watch, or see around us. However, meeting someone with firsthand experience can often challenge our preconceived ideas. In this post, I would like to explore some questions about sex work and how our views may change based on our experiences.

Before becoming a sex worker or interacting with one, what were your preconceived ideas about those who work in the industry? Did they change after interacting with or becoming a sex worker yourself?

What influences your views on sex work? Is it media, movies, or personal interactions with sex workers?

If you found out that one of your friends was a sex worker, would your view of them change? If so, why?

As a sex worker, what has influenced your way of working? Have your ideas about sex work and those in the industry changed since starting? What drew you to the industry?

Speaking from my own experience, I must admit that I had many preconceived ideas about the industry before becoming a sex worker. However, after starting out, I discovered that much of what I thought was simply misinformation. I learned that one doesn’t have to fit a certain mold to succeed or have a variety of clients.

As a sex worker, my way of working is influenced by my lifestyle, what makes me feel comfortable, the people I spend time with, and how it fits around my schedule and identity as a person.

Before entering the industry, my contact with sex workers was limited to what I saw on the internet or during a night out. However, since starting, I have met and interacted with a diverse group of people with different political, religious and personal beliefs. It’s been an enriching experience that has allowed me to meet some amazing people.

In conclusion, it’s important to question our preconceived notions and recognize the diversity that exists within the sex work industry. Personal experiences and interactions can greatly impact our views and understanding of sex work, so it’s crucial to keep an open mind and continue learning.
