How we all doing today gang?!
So yesterday I had the most hits on my blog EVER! I am so pleased by the ositive comments and feedback that it’s receiving. Today I bring you the marvellous Kimberley Scott! (@sexyplaymatexxx)
Kimberley hails from Eastern Europe, now living in the UK, and describes herself as a “indi companion, party organizer and party girl, XXX/Glam/Adult model and performer, cam girl” – so she is a lady of many talents. She has been working in the adult industry since she was 18 years old so has seen it all! She is also a clever sort, and actually has a degree in Psychology – just like yours truly.

Initially I wanted to continue with MIT and System Administration (high school diploma is A of Graphic Design and Video Editing) but unfortunately there was no satisfying subject in the Uni of my lil town so I went to the capital, started my sex work (more free time for studies and of course a lot better pay). Dealing with different people every day made me re-think my study ambitions and I went for Psychology. At the end of the day I was and still am practicing it in my work so I just wanted to know what makes people tick. I just wanted to know what drives people to do the things they do.

Psychology is definitely very useful in this line of work, in my opinion, as it allows you understand how and why people may think the way that they do, and really get under their skin and provide the best service that you can!
Kimberley was already working in the adult industry when she began her studies – the money was good enough to allow her to fund herself through university, and she felt that she didn’t have that many options so adult work seemed like a good choice! As she said herself, the country she hails from isn’t know for looking after it’s people terribly well.
After university, Kimberley wanted to work in the police force, or as a forensic psychologist. However, this didn’t go to plan…

I’ve always wanted to be a police officer or at least in the forces. After 5 years in uni doing psychology I knew what I wanted to do – I wanted to be a forensic psychologist. Unfortunately there were way too many obstacles like corruption and sleaziness so I went on different path.

During her time at university, not many people we aware of Kimberley’s job, and she says that those that were, either weren’t that bothered or were doing the same thing themselves! She even hints that certain skillsets from the job may have helped certain people in their academic pursuits…

There weren’t that many people knew what I was doing but those that knew didn’t really care. It was more interesting to them how my world works than actually being prejudice. When I finished uni 40% of girls were doing my job to fund studies or just for better, glamorous life (In some case the marks were depending on certain skills too, hush hush of course)

Many times I have counted my blessings and been thankful that I live in a society where my choices are my own and that I have the support of my friends and family. Kimberley also says that she is lucky in this respect.

Thankfully western world is a lot more tolerant with sex work and women choosing to do that job so there is not that much surprise, unfortunately there are still some people thinking that we’re forced to do it and we’re wasting our potential. I’m blessed that my family and closest friends are ok with my job and I can share my thoughts and feelings free.

Some people, of course, do not have this attitude to sex workers, and Kimberley sums this up quite nicely in her final thoughts – citing religion and society as the biggest opposition in the fight for sexual freedom!

Sex work in general can be very rewarding in many ways – Financial independence, sexual freedom, knowing yourself better and overall well being. The society although makes it sound like biggest disgrace hiding behind Bible, old fashioned customs and some powerful people’s misunderstandings. In this day and age women can CHOOSE on their own to be sex workers or not. Yes, there is a dark side to it but isn’t there for everything? Yes, it is dangerous but tell me what job is not dangerous? At the end of the day that’s our lives and we going to live it the way we want to.

Wise words from a smart lady. I think that forcing small businesses into bankruptcy for profit is immoral, but you don’t see people protesting against banks as a whole. I also think that sitting around on your ass all day expecting the state to foot the bill for your lazy lifestyle is pretty wrong, but you don’t get people holding conferences discussing how this type of immorality eats away at our society and creates a horde of useless drones. Thank you, Kimberley, for your contribution to today’s blog – and keep up the good work girl!

So the other day I noticed that a girl I followed on Twitter said that people are always surprised to hear that she is at university, on account of the fact that she is also a model, lapdancer and webcam girl. This resonated with me; people always seem shocked to hear that I too have a degree. This got me thinking that having both a brain and a career in the adult industry are not mutually exclusive. So I decided to write about it here. This blog post is a little different to the others as I have asked several other adult workers or various descriptions to contribute! I have also split it into several parts on account of the number of contributors! So this is part 1.

The girl who got me thinking in the first place is one Miss Lesley Rose (@MissLesleyRose). We met at an adult industry Christmas party a year or so ago and have been twitter followers ever since. Lesley is currently studying a BSc(Hons) degree in Psychology with Child Development, with a view to eventually working with children with special educational needs – specifically, those with motor function difficulties. She is also a webcam model and lapdancer.

Lesley was already a lapdancer before commencing her studies, and, as so often is the case, this led to modelling jobs. However, as any dancer will tell you, it’s hard to maintain a good living out of dancing as more girls come to the clubs, or they shut down altogether. Lesley then turned to webcamming, after a brief stint working on the adult chat channels.

When asked if she has ever encountered any prejudice based on what she does, Lesley says:

I think people assume I’m slow or stupid when I’m not. And they think I’m doing a degree for show and not because I know what I’m doing when I’m actually smashing it and I just finished my semester with a First. I think people don’t look past the job title and think “oh she must have no brain”. Countless times people have either been shocked that I’m doing a degree or doing so well at it. People say things like “oh she gets her tits out cause that’s all she’s good for” when that’s not the case at all.

I also asked Lesley if, like me, people are surprised when they find out she is a student, knowing what she does for a living, and vice versa. She replied:

Yeah they’re shocked! And then they assume that I HAVE to do what I do because I have no money which again isn’t true. I choose to do my job because I love it not because I NEED to. People at uni don’t know what I do, bar one person, and she’s really not bothered by it at all.

Lesley’s final words, which I shall end this blog post on for now, pretty much sum up how I also feel about people’s attitudes to adult workers that also, God forbid, have an education!:

I think people need to stop being so narrow minded. A lot of men and women in the adult industry get judged based on their jobs as if being in the industry makes you less of a person. Now I don’t speak for all parties involved but you would be surprised how many girls have a degree, have husbands, wives, fiancés, work in a corporate environment and in the adult industry as a fun sideline. Just stop judging people.

Feel the love, people! More in Part 2 – from a naked handyman studying for his masters in Marketing & PR…

Well Hello There!

So I’ve decided to start writing a blog! 

Those of you who know me – HI!

Those who don’t, here’s a short introduction…

I work in the adult industry.  I started off webcamming, I did a bit of porn for a while, I now focus on fetish and pro-domme/dominatrix work. I still webcam, I still do phone chat, and I am now a producer on ChatGirlTVX. People are always fascinated by the adult world, and are often misled or ignorant of what actually goes on, so here’s a place where you can read about it all from someone who’s done a lot, seen a lot, and knows a lot about it! 

I shall be talking about lots of things on here, not just about the world I work in but about me and my life – as with anyone, there’s more to me than my job! 

Hope you enjoy!
