Leaving Sex Work
Yeah, I know, I didn’t really LEAVE sex work, since I wasn’t exactly in sex work. But in some ways, I was…
I announced that I was leaving Star Light in the end of December, although I actually resigned from my position in late October. So now I’m technically 6 months out of it. I wish that leaving sex work was linear and that I could name for you all the process that you go through, but it’s just not that easy.
But there are a few things that I’ve gone through that seem to be similar to leaving sex work. These are the things that I have gone through:
- Attention from men seems annoying, at best.
Tolerance for said attention is nearly gone.
I have a lot of fear about going “legitimate.” Will anyone want to hire me?
Finding fulfillment in my work is difficult. I miss sex work!
It’s easy to get drawn back in. (I’m still doing stuff!)
I miss the community.
What’s your experience?
