Dating a sex worker
Rantsi, who has been a sex worker for three years narrates the ordeal that lead to her meeting the love of her life two years ago.Sex work has long been criticised and stigmatised in our society and it has never been regarded as a serious profession.So much so that they would regularly come in for an opportunity to get off campus and watch the lithe Russian women bend and twirl, applauding the loudest whenever I'd take the stage. One night, my roommate surprised me by bringing a group of guys from school whom I'd never met before.
“I was prepared for shock and disappointment.” For context Rantsi told him about the struggles of her childhood leading to the circumstances that led to her becoming a sex worker.
She anticipated judgment, which was usually what happened when people found out. She explains,“Tears were running down his cheeks and they were tears of love and compassion.
He gave me a warm hug and whispered in my ear:‘It will be ok. That was the shock of my life.” Some of his close relatives and friends knew that Rantsi was a sex worker and they also showed support. He now understands the issues of sex workers more than before.
Men took to Reddit to discuss what it's like to have a partner who sells her body, with some commenters put off by the idea - and others claiming that sex workers make the best girlfriends.
Being in a relationship with a sex worker can create jealousy issues for some fellas, but other men claim that there's no reason why women working in the world's oldest profession are any different to be with.
Thamae’s advice to other men is that sex workers are human beings and should be seen as human first before anything else.
