Spent most of my life as a Dominatrix, am now retired, but write & do artwork which underpins my writing. My writing is about prostution & the ethics around it. I am an advocate for the de-crim of sexwork internationally.
I care abour people, how they feel & how they see themselves. In doing so it made me realise that sometimes the way we see others affect them greatly....it is this aspect of ourselves, our judgements & our inner fears that can help or destroy others that feel vulnerable. Have not we all felt vulnerable at some time in our lives, what would we have wanted for ourselves during these times of crisis....understanding & love? These are things we must remember when we are grateful for what we have, least we pass each other on the way down.
Sexworkers are one of the most misunderstood & sometimes despised of cultures within our societies, yet we forget they have their own stories....their own experiences that we think do not apply to others who are not within that profession. Step back & consider that there may be a wealth of love, inspiration & understanding that we lose by not acknowledging their worth....nor the fact that we might indeed become better people for what many sexworkers have within their hearts, given the chance, given the opportunity.
Have also been a drug/alcohol counsellor setting up a agency for street people in Plymoth, UK.
My lifes work & dream, is to hopefully see & be a part of reclaiming the honour back into the profession of prostitution. Would love to see the seeds set before this life is over.
Also in my early days used to run a badger field study centre on Dartmoor, Devon, UK. It was this work, seeing badgers in captivity that helped me recognise a corrulation to people in poverty & the conditions that they are forced to live in, which got me on the road to becoming a counsellor & future work around issues of marginalised people.
I am a great believer that people are linked & know it when they are.
I love life & all it has to offer. I feel all experiences are valid, even those percieved as bad, are just the way we see them. Most `bad` experiences are the ones we can learn the most from.
Love to see things from ALL aspects & not the usual ones, there are many mountain-tops!
I am an intelligent person who loves to challenge ordinary ways of seeing things.
Have experienced both life & death.
I hate judgemental people, who have never experienced what they judge.
Love the concept of Sacred Whoredom & prostitution being re-newed as another honourable profession.
Can talk on most subjects hopefully, when I cannot I listen!
Oh, I nearly forgot, I am a Taurean with Scorpio rising, so that puts me square in the right role in life.
