A criminal defence lawyer from Iowa has opened up about her life as a part-time sex worker, a role she has found to be both empowering and lucrative.
30-year-old married mother-of-one Katherine Sears became involved in sex work three years ago and works three weeks at a time at a Nevada brothel, where sex work has been legalised. She claims this is something shes always wanted to do.
Katherine has said she once earned a whopping $55,000 after just three weeks of sex work, seeing around 10 to 15 clients on her busiest days. By going public with her story, Katherine hopes to help towards the decriminalisation of sex work.
You can watch Katherine being interviewed about her work in the following clip:
As reported by KCCI, Katherine met her husband John Sear a few years back when they were both attending Drake Law School.
Katherine had already been engaged in sex work when the couple first met. John is said to have no issue with her extra means of income, telling KCCI, I really dont care that much.
The couple practice criminal law together, and now have a four-month-old son. Following her babys birth, Katherine has taken time out from sex work to focus on family life and her legal practice.
Going forward, she wants to tackle the judgemental stigma attached to sex work and hopes to educate others about the realities of the oldest profession. She has also said she would be willing to take on sex worker cases on a pro-bono basis.
Speaking with KCCI, Katherine said:
Prostitutes are people. Prostitutes Ive known are some of the best people Ive known,
I think a lot of people are upset about prostitution without understanding what it is they are being upset about.
