The Knowne World Courtesans are creating podcasts

patrons
$81
per month
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.)

  • 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.

  • A personal thank you note written by one of the Knowne World Courtesans to show our appreciation. 
  • Access to private digital salons with one or more members of the Knowne World Courtesans in our historical garb when they are held.
  •  A Knowne World Courtesans Patron pin, the golden hart, upon full payment for your first month at this level of support. 
  • All of the previous levels of patron rewards, as well.
