This level of support earns you Domina Lepida's especial gratitude, as it keeps her cup full of her favorite wines during our salons. When in Rome, right? We will also:
  • Credit our new patrons in a podcast.
  • Credit randomly selected long term patrons in each podcast.
  • Provide you with opportunities to suggest topics for future salons.

  • Exclusive #courtesanthoughts video shorts, featuring a courtesan of the Knowne World Courtesans in our historical garb, sharing some thoughts on various topics related to courtesanry. Filmed as events allow.
  • All of the previous tiers' benefits as well.

About The Knowne World Courtesans

The Knowne World Courtesans are a free confederation of reenactors who have chosen a pre-1600s sex worker as their persona, along with our patrons, cavaliers, and entourages.

In our podcast we share discussions of the history we have studied, how it intersects with our modern identities, along with performances of sultry songs, poems, and recounting of historical shenanigans. We profile sex workers from history and discuss the influences sex workers have always had on the culture of their day.

In our digital salons we seek to share our mission with the world at large: Sex is fun, sex work is a job, agency is for everyone, you alone define your gender and sexual identities, and none of this was invented in the 1960s. If you support that, we hope you'll consider becoming our patron.

(As members of the Knowne World Courtesans we do not provide sexual services of ANY kind for payment of ANY kind.)

This level of patronage makes Whores to Culture completely self sustaining. This is absolutely necessary for making sure the podcast exists in the long term. If you want to make sure Whores to Culture stays around, please share this page and help us meet this goal.
