Last month I got the opportunity to visit New York and be a part of the Red Umbrella Diaries. It's a monthly storytelling series where people who've tangled with the sex industry tell personal stories about the complications that arise when you mix sex and money, with a different theme each month.
Last month the theme was Healing Touch and the story I shared was about my partner, Briar, and my work with hir as an outcall escort. You can listen below or at the Red Umbrella Project. Relatedly, I recently wrote about my experience doing security for Briar in the article My Life as a "Pimp." In some ways, this has been a hard story to tell, but I feel it's a story that really deserves to be heard.
