Identifying the moment that I first became a sex worker is sort of like pinpointing the anniversary of a casual relationship that later became serious. Do I count the first time I opened up my apartment to sex work? Or the first time I actually took a fee and saw a client?

If we go from that last starting point, I began my career as a sex worker a little more than 13 months ago. Hereís what Iíve learned in my first year on the jobóand what you can learn from my mistakes.

1) Sex work means different things to different people.

Sex work is a variety of different business lines within an industry. Itís not necessarily just prostitution, and itís not necessarily illegal. I consider in-person sex work to include services like exotic dancing, erotic massage, escorting, brothel work, fetish companionship, and outdoor prostitution.

These differ from other forms of sex work, where the consumer does not meet the provider in person. Porn, exotic and erotic photography, phone sex, and live-sex webcams are a few examples of non-IRL sex work. Itís a mistake to consider all sex work to be the same, or to take one personís perspective of sex work as authoritative.

Interesting read. I could identify with a few points. Lately I've been surprised how I attached value my 'inventory' as it has worth to clients and real quantity limits. :-P
