about

It’s time I tell you more about myself in this section, though I think most of you already know all this.

I live in New York, and I’ve worked in the arts for most of my adult life. I’m also very sexual. I’ve been promiscuous and I’ve been monogamous and I think I prefer to exist between these two extremes.

I also have an extensive history in sex work. I’ve worked as a nude model, a fetish model, a fetish worker, a call girl (agency and independent), and ultimately, extensively, as a courtesan (I prefer the term ‘whoretesan’), which I did for several years. I blogged my way through these stints as I struggled with the difficulty of living a double life. The double life continues to be difficult.

Lately, I’ve been pulling away from the sex work because of the recent influx of attention. I certainly brought it upon myself, I know this. One of these public flashes was an anonymous interview I did with Diane Sawyer earlier this year. My mother recognized me, and when she did, I mentioned this on my blog. I didn’t think it would be an issue, but it was. And things got weird.

I still work in the arts and sex is still central to my life. I’m editing a website with Kasia dedicated to haute porn or art porn or whatever you’d call the convergence of art and sex. Sex work was/is/will always be just one manifestation of an interest I’ve sustained since adolescence.

Interview at Reverse Cowgirl.

Interview at Refinery29.  Reprinted in the Huffington Post here, accompanied by a photo of woman with tits much larger than my own.

I’m not going to list the tabloidy fall-out, but the Diane Sawyer interview is here. I respond to the traffic storm here and I talk about the interview again here.

Suzanne Portnoy wrote a bit about the discovery for the Huffington Post and her own relationship with her family.  I’ve got no answers of my own, but I like her thoughts on the subject.
