I’ve Been a Prostitute for Almost 10 Years—Here’s How I Feel About It

Posted in economics by ittecon on April 22, 2015

It seems that stigmatising sex workers can do more damage to their self-esteem than the sex work itself.

I think I’ve internalized the societal hatred of sex workers. I am embarrassed to be a sex worker, even though I like my job, I’m good at it, and I’ve made exceptional progress in my career over the past few years. Despite all my accomplishments, I feel like a loser. Sometimes I jokingly refer to myself as a “whore” or a “hooker” to try to re-claim these derogatory terms, but I often find myself thinking of myself as “just a whore.”
