Welcome. I go by suprihmbé. On Twitter I'm @thotscholar.

This Patreon was created to help fund me as I move away from sex work as my main source of income and write my first book about proheaux womanism and what it means to me. My working definition of proheaux womanism has been cited in articles, presentations, and dissertations. I have written articles for Wear Your Voice Magazine and Autostraddle, among others, and have had my work reposted on Afropunk and Everyday Feminism. I started a blog called heauxthots in October 2016, and started writing my book this past April.

I decided early that I wanted to be my own boss, but I wasn't always sure how it would manifest. I started stripping at eighteen, sugared and engaged in street work for a bit, and started doing cyber work (camming) a few years ago. Stripping was never my first choice but it definitely wasn't a last resort. The entire appeal of stripping and other sex work is: FREEDOM. I have never worked a "normal" 9-to-5, though I have done domestic work and food service. I have avoided certain kinds of work at different periods in my life because I value my freedom--what little of it I have managed to grasp onto. This means anything from coloring my hair and dressing how I want, to having flexible work so that I can homeschool (unschool) my kiddo and write and create part time. 

I own a one-woman LLC that I am trying to get off the ground. As I move into the upper tiers I will be devoting more time and effort to my indie press, bbydoll press LLC. BBYDOLL PRESS is a proheaux womanist indie press. The goal is to publish fiction, poetry and nonfiction by Black and indigenous people of color that is queer-focused, trans-inclusive, and sex worker friendly or centered. The thing is, I have been struggling to leave sex work completely--not out of shame but out of sheer boredom and disgust. I am tired of fighting from the inside and I would rather advocate for other workers. I have dealt with hella misogynoir and racism while working, both in cyber work and IRL work. I am tired of struggling against laws and cops and racist clients and classist sex workers, and I wanna do work that I enjoy, and sex work just isn't enjoyable on that level for me anymore. However, I know I may have a few years before I am able to quit completely (financially). The goal of this Patreon is to cover my basic needs and then, hopefully, to make it so that I can be fully indie--as an artist/writer. This Patreon will remain educational and friendly to all because I don't need them trying to hide my content. There will be no public nudity posts, any NSFW posts will be tagged as such. I do not use trigger warnings, though sometimes I will place content warnings. But I generally don't post violent or inflammatory vidoes/visuals.

Highlighted Posts:


a working definition of proheaux womanism (originally published on Medium)

proheauxism 1. Proheaux womanism. Derived from the more colloquial pro-hoe. (Spelling altered to reflect difference & refinement.) Black or Brown womanists and feminists who are pro-sexual enjoyment for sexual people and/or are sex workers and/or support sex worker rights. Committed to collective and personal empowerment, not just sexually, but through economic security sans judgment of the means. Radically thotty, and proud of it. Curious about sex, about birth and rebirth, about challenge and change, about redemption and reparations, about the physical and the divine. Understands what it means to go to the river.

2. Also: A woman or femme who understands the racialized nature of sexuality. One who rejects misogynoir and transmisogynoir. This is important. Does not accept nor engage in (silently or otherwise) transphobia, homophobia or anti blackness. Accepting of nontraditional gender expressions, and not only loves zir ace, grace, and GNC sibs, but elevates zir voices and concerns. Rejects the idea of femininity as a monolithic, frivolous expression and works to dismantle the transphobic notion of “deception.” One who rejects phallocentrism (dick-centrism), heteronormativity and androcentrism, not only in the realm of sexual politics, but in all realms. One who refuses to perpetuate toxic masculine ideals, or police other women/femmes. Dresses how ze wants, goes where ze wants. Supports sexual freedom, including the freedom to deny/reject. Understands the danger of being a Black/Brown woman, especially a trans woman, but prefers to live rather than quietly exist. Works to dismantle rape culture. Committed to zirself, zir people & the eradication of all forms of oppression. Knowledgeable about zir body. Aware of the world around zir: global. Multifaceted. Committed to the safety of marginalized people. Embraces zir body: “This is my body, and my truth.”

3. Committed to the decriminalization & destigmatization of sex work and the Black body. Not just pro-fucking around, but pro-us. Not just sex positive, but realistic. Understands the complexity of choice & empowerment when residing in a colonized body. Against all forms of racial fetishism within a racist-sexist-Capitalist society. Opposed to the colonization of prison abolitionist language. Eschews transgression for the sake of transgression. Destroyer of hierarchies & heauxarchies. Against sexual or body shaming of any kind. Committed to the people’s agency and health, particularly sexual, mental & reproductive health. (Access to abortion, antiretroviral drugs, adequate child care, health insurance and affordable housing.) Always centers Black and Brown women & femmes. Devoted to economic freedom, and critiquing [or dismantling] capitalism.

4. Sex positivity for Black and Brown women and femmes. Specifically sex worker & trans inclusive. Might be: a professional heaux, a refined hoe, an elegant, sensual being of divine essence. One who owns oneself, regardless if ze are attached to a man or masculine person or not. One who understands and reveres the power of a healthy femininity (and masculinity) and understands that this power is beyond the physical. It is political, it is economic, it is survival, it is personal. Fuck classism. Fuck respectability. Fuck the norm. Fuck free emotional labor.

5. Lover of the sensual, of fat, of food, of weed, of bundles. Of indulgence or self-imposed abstinence. Of veiling or unveiling. Naturally creative. Always puts zir orgasm FIRST. Tribal goddesses, ho[e]s, thotty queens, indigenous princesses and brujas of the diaspora. Red and violet, royalty and blood.
