Sex Work: Fact & Fiction

Tuesday, November 10, 2009
Before reading this blog post, please watch the following clip on YouTube:


Finished? Good. I stumbled across this clip last night, and still don't know what to think of it. Garren is a great looking guy, sure, but he comes across as more of an actor that a genuine escort.

That, and no escort worth the condoms and lubricant they bring to the appointment would reveal themselves on television. Why, you might ask? Well, the IRS can wreak havoc on one's life, seeing how escorts aren't usually the keenest about filing their taxes honestly.

Secondly, there's the whole matter of letting one's family and friends know they're a sex worker -- let alone any future employment outside the sex industry. Parents can be especially touchy, thinking they've "failed" their children when they found out that they've become whores.

So what is this segment of the Tyra Banks show really about? If anything, it proves that women are far less judgmental of men than they are of each other. It's a shame, really. The general population of women could learn a lot from female escorts, if only they'd let go of their preconceived notions and just listen up.

Me? I'm just here for the ride -- literally. And what a ride I had last night at work...
