Today we’re talking about the blurring of lines between client and acquaintance… in both directions. Sometimes, as sex workers, we get booking requests from people we know (in real life) who want to become our clients. And sometimes, people who start out as clients go on to become acquaintances, or even friends. Our misconception of the week is that sex work is legal in Australia - the reality is it’s a whole lot more complicated than that! Jenna shares the story of a poor man whose phone seems to keep getting hacked every Saturday night, and they discuss pubic hair preferences.
