The fear of arrest was constant and terrifying, so I went to Paris, where I fell in love with an Egyptian teacher.
I knew that being recognizable as an escort would prevent a lot of clients from wanting to be seen in public with me, so it was a way of closing the lid on that chapter of my life.
I turn up, relax, the clients come to me, I go home.
It immediately made national headlines and then the hate mail started to pour.
I was abandoned by my mother and raised by my father on state handouts, along with four other children.It was the hardest possible I have worked so hard to get to this point.Some may see me as upper class, but I'm more a naturally grounded hippy so I'm not comfortable with status or putting people in boxes.The biggest difficulty lay in revealing the truth.I keep trying to emphasize that wasn't.We talked to each other about things that, through no fault of our own, set us apart from the world.Thats where I met someone who got me hooked on cocaine, and eventually introduced me to Mandy.

I'm a lot poorer now than I was when I was a sex worker, but much more content.
