A Change of Pace
I've been thinking a lot about my experience with sex work, and I think I'm ready to give it up.Sex work really helped me establish strong boundaries, as well as giving me a solid identity and giving me the chance to save money in a way I couldn't working retail. But it hasn't felt safe or served me for a long time, and I think I am going to pull back from the NSFW world, at least for a while, potentially forever.Not a lot will actively change, mind! I still plan to make some erotic art, I'll still do photo shoots, I'll occasionally talk about sexuality. But I'm changing my website to focus more on my writing and speaking and put the sex worker identity to the side. This Patreon will no longer be NSFW. It has been punishing trying to make it when I can't be searched for and I can't advertise. So I'm going to try going in a new direction. Sex work in recent years has felt pretty toxic. It's competitive, it's body shaming, it's patriarchal. I need some space from it. So I'm going to put up a survey about other stuff I may want to write about to see where you all would be interested in seeing me go from here!
