A single mum supports her four kids by working as an escort.
The sex worker, who goes by the name Victoria, has spent the last four years fulfilling clients’ intimate requests.
Each day, she takes an average of four bookings – and charges customers around £250 an hour.
This has helped the 33-year-old to have enough money to fund family life, but there are some downsides to the industry.
In Louis Theroux’s BBC documentary, Selling Sex, Victoria said the profession has made her lose trust in men.
She also spoke about the stigma that surrounds women in the sex industry.
Victoria, who is based in Nottingham, said: “I’ve had so many bad sexual experiences.
“People abusing me and taking everything from me since I was 14.
“There’s no good connection there from sex.
“So I’ve turned it around. I’ve got an ability to have sex with anybody and it doesn’t mean anything. So I can easily do my job.
“I just look at it in a positive way…
“Sex is just not the same for me as most people.”
While Victoria says disconnecting from sex has helped her to do her job, it’s had an affect on the way she views men.
It’s also made it difficult for the mum to trust others and form relationships.
She added: “Men are just – I’d refer to as, very simple creatures.
“They’re not complex like us, they’re very simple.
“Majority of men are not nice, there’s a big percentage that I don’t agree with or don’t think are presentable.
“It takes a lot for me to be able to trust a man.”
Victoria also lifted the lid on other downsides of the industry.
When Louis asked her whether she’d support her daughter if she got into escorting, the mum said she wouldn’t be pleased about the career plans.
She explained: “I wouldn’t want that at all.
“The judgement around it, especially when everyone is questioning you and saying stuff about you.
“I think that’s why girl’s don’t last long in this industry.
“It’s a whole stigma.”
In the future, Victoria hopes to move away from escorting.
Instead of meeting clients, she plans to partake in more adult shoots.
She said: “I don’t have to be so close and personal with people…
“I’m being a lot more picky (with work).
“Even on certain shoots I’ve said ‘I’m not doing that’.”
The mum also hopes she’ll learn to trust a man in the future – and maybe even settle down in a relationship.
She added: “Ideally, I’d love a normal relationship.
“But the situation I’m in at the minute – is a relationship with me and the children.
“Obviously, I don’t want to be like this forever.”
