Thriving in Sex Work
Book By Lola Davina
Thriving in Sex Work is part workshop, part autobiography with a lot of good advice for how to stay in sex work longer, happier and some good bits to get you thinking about how to organize your finances for success.
Written inclusively and with a lot of love, Thriving in Sex Work is brought to us mostly from the apartment of a mid-thirties full service provider who manages her own business. I love the advice to hire professionals, save, invest, plan, address fear and grow community. Worth reading, and having on hand for excellent references. IMO this book is for the more secure ho looking to up his/her game.
More than just compassionate tidbits on life in “The Biz,” I felt like this book by Lola Davina is a straight forward (but still compassionate) how-to process for taking care of oneself while doing sex work. It seemed to me that the author’s primary experience is with escorting, and while I am not an escort, I still found this book very engaging and full of solid advice. I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about starting out in SW. For more seasoned SW veterans, some of the topics may seem a little obvious or things one has maybe already learned the hard way over the years, but Lola’s cute, loving tone and sage words can’t hurt for anyone to read at any point in their career.
This book is all about radical self-acceptance coupled with radical self-care. One place to begin with both these v. important journeys is with our own bodies!! So we drew pussy portraits.
