Here's the original article
My initial thoughts were sex is such a lurid topic in the US and there is always a tinge of victim/pity angle in the mainstream press in regards to sex workers.
I know that none of the women in the article necessarily said "feel sorry for me" but I was going to say "I don't".
These are women headed for the upper middle class, they are educated, they have options. Sex work is a luxury for them and probably more than a bit of excitement. Not a dangerous, filthy necessity.
'Kay, kinda extreme generalization, but you get my drift?
