I am a Portland sex worker who most regularly works as a stripper or intimacy coach. I graduated with a B.A in Criminal Justice from Portland State University, but abandoned the childhood dream of working in street level law enforcement when I became more informed about the nuances of humanity through my sex work. I believe that morality is often not related to legality.
In 2015, I was the poster girl for a small team of legislators and entertainers, who made history when Governor Kate Brown passed HB 3059, a bi-partisan supported bill which created resources for live entertainers across the state of Oregon. (In 2017 the hotline was dismantled, due to mismanagement by the Bureau of Labor and Industries, and due to statewide budget cuts.)
I’m a freelance writer for Men’s Health Magazine and Romper.com. I have been a co-organizer of Portland Slutwalk since 2014, and I currently co-host the award-nominated UnzippedPDX: Two Strippers Talk About Whatever the Fuck They Want. I attend the Institute for Sexuality, Education and Enlightenment, and very soon will be a Certified Sex Educator. I don’t like talking about tattoos, oh! and if you wear a suit to the strip club, you deserve to be hustled.
