EP 36 // How does an escort set her rates?

July 9, 2019

First things first... *adult content warning*, so maybe don't listen to this one with your kids or at work?

This week, I am joined by Sephe Haven, the author of "My Whorizontal Life: An Escort's Tale", where she shares the story of a young actress who went from graduating from Julliard to stepping into the lucrative life of a New York escort in the 1980s, (back when even Madonna was still like a virgin...)

But, instead of just talking about the sexy stuff (which we do plenty of), I wanted to ask Sephe... How does an escort set rates? How do you renegotiate your pay? Are there contracts? Do you pay taxes?

Find out the answers to these questions, and much more, frankly probably too much! I might regret not editing out some the confessions I make in this episode! (Thank goodness my mother still doesn't know what a podcast is)
