Thriving in #SexWork w/ @Lola_Davina — #KatieSpeakShow Ep117 1/06/2018

In brief: I say as I introduce her that I am delighted to have Lola Davina on the show and that is completely true. I devoured her book “Thriving in Sex Work: Heartfelt Advice For Staying Sane in the Sex Industry” and fangirled my way into her agreeing to come on. We discuss some personal stories, make important parallels between sex work and other work, tackling the stigma of performing acts that are legal when free, but suddenly illegal when compensated, and what it looks like to transition out of the life. Lola is a delight; I can’t wait for you to meet her!
