Sex Workers Lie All Christmas

For sex workers, Christmas can be a stressful and lonely time. More so than for most people. They have all the usual present buying, decoration chores, cooking and jollity to perform or endure. And they all too often have to remain totally secret about their jobs and any stresses, successes or problems they have experienced over the year. Everyone else is reminiscing and they sit on the outside unable to honestly share with their nearest and dearest.

Of course they can and do chat with clients about work and I am sure clients can provide lots of supper information. It can however be a bit tricky as a sex worker for someone like 2nd Circle. You are paid to be happy and interested as much as to get your kit off. No matter what sort of day you have the client must come first ( pun intended) they are coming (!) To you to forget worries and to relax so a moaning (and again) sex worker would rarely get much repeat business.

So back to my original point its Christmas and you are going to be with family and friends who probably don’t know what you do. It can be very stressful. Normal enquiries about your day to day can turn into a mine field of lies and deceit. Or alternatively you seem cold and aloof as you just don’t want to have any personal conversation. Keeping track of who knows what and what you said to who about what and when can be very difficult when you are not able to tell the truth I suppose half truths based on little facts might be best. I mean the movies tell spies to keep cover stories as close to the truth as possible don’t they?

So not only are you a sex worker you are now a liar too. As I understand it families that discover a loved one is working in the sex industry can be as shocked about the on going lies as much as by the job. It really is a no win situation bit as it stands today it is the only option for most individuals.
If you are thinking of coming out this Christmas season I wish you good luck and you have my warmest best wishes. There will be no easy way I can only hope that you get the love and understanding you need.

I would think that a lot of families already suspect something but are unable to pinpoint or don’t want to register what they may know in their hearts. Coming out could go either way you may gain a fantastic support network or maybe not. It’s a risk only you can decide to take. There are if course a few who are able to tell moms and dads husbands and siblings but they do remain in the minority.

Society really does need to change its attitude to sex work in all of its forms. After all isn’t it society that uses sex workers? Aren’t sex workers part of society? But maybe I can rant about that later.

In the meantime Christmas is coming and let’s all be naughty and nice. Let’s spread the joy and other bits of the anatomy. Best wishes to you all. Remember being bad can be good.
