I recently posted a story on my Instagram about my experience as a sex worker. To my surprise, I received quite a few positive reactions from women, who indicated that they also had worked as sex workers and didn’t look back on that in a negative way.
It wasn’t the first time I told about my past through my own platform. But I notice that more and more women responded. Some of them even spoke about their story to me. It seems as if they were happy that they found someone to tell their story to.
During the private conversations with these ladies, I often realize how unfortunate it is that they feel as if they can’t speak openly.
While they say they don’t regret anything some of them tell their partner, a parent or another loved one, but most of them don’t.
Recently someone approached me on Instagram. Two young ladies who started a High-Class Escort Agency. They themselves had never worked in the sex industry but were starting an agency. However, this turned out to be more difficult than they thought. Because the ladies themselves had never been in the ‘business’ there were a lot of unanswered questions about the experiences and perceptions of the sex workers.
The two ladies spent a long time looking for a (former) escort or sex worker who wanted to talk to them, but that turned out to be quite difficult. The reason is that many women simply are afraid to come out.
Because of the stigma surrounding the profession, due to various factors, it is difficult for women to talk about this with other people.
The fear of not being taken seriously, being looked at strangely or being condemned, hangs over them. So they were very happy when they found me.
After talking to them, I can only conclude that there will always be women who are attracted to this exciting and mysterious world. For that, you don’t necessarily have to be a sex worker. Soon the ladies and their employees will visit Tour de BonTon. So I can tell them more about my own experiences as a former sex worker. That is the beauty of Tour de BonTon and the transparency we offer; the tour is appropriate for everyone.
