While browsing the analytics for my website I made a completely unexpected discovery today. The country with the third highest number of “impressions” in web searches about male sex workers for women that displayed a link to this website is Russia (after Australia and the US).
That was a surprise to me. Also surprising was the zero click throughs – 829 impressions in the last month, but zero click throughs. I don’t know how many Russians read English so that’s a barrier, but google translate is a thing so…
A little googling of my own reveals (unsurprisingly) that while sex work is illegal in Russia, there is a significant industry, so perhaps there are enough male workers for women in Russia already. Or perhaps we are just worlds apart – physically and metaphorically – and Australian men aren’t to the taste of Russian women? Who can say.
Well, we’ve reached that time again – another year gone. I wanted to thank everyone who has booked with me this year. Thank you for your support, it has been a wonderful experience once again.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday.
I’m looking forward to the new year and continuing the adventure with you!
I want to say thank you and wish everyone well as this year draws to a close.
To all of you who have booked with me this year – thank you. As ever it has been a fun year, despite the troubles we’ve all been enduring. Thank you for your patience with booking dates when things have been uncertain and as always your generous support.
I am looking forward to the new year, meeting new people and seeing those I already I know again.
Stay safe. Be kind. Enjoy life to the full.
So NSW is back in business and the easing of covid restrictions means that sex workers like me are allowed to work again.
It feels good to be back!
In the interest of everyone staying healthy and safe, these are the rules for seeing me:
- Get vaccinated! I am fully vaccinated (since June 4th) and will be getting a booster when I am entitled in early December. I won’t be seeing anyone who isn’t vaccinated – unless they have a health restriction that prevents them for receiving the vaccine. I’m sorry if this is a problem, but I have to put my health and everyone else who I see first
- When I’m out in public I will wear a mask (except in a restaurant where that’s not practical)
- I will continue to get tested for covid regularly. I encourage anyone who is coming to see me to do the same. If you are immunocompromised or vulnerable in some other way, please let me know and I can provide a recent negative covid test result before we meet
- If you are visiting me, please wear a mask in my building. It’s a rule of the building and everyone has to follow it
And that’s it. I hope that we can all work together to protect everyone’s health.
This is just a short post to apologise for the problem yesterday with accessing my site. I upgraded the site to the latest version of WordPress, which unbeknown to me broke the splash screen and prevented people from accessing the site in full.
This has now been resolved and I am looking at a new splash screen system.
I really hope that 2021 be a better year for all of us!
I’m sorry that I have not been posting regularly here, but you know – 2020…
Seriously though, it was a long year with a lot of personal challenges on top of the insanity of covid-19. Thank you to everyone who booked with me last year, for your support. That made it much easier than it could have been.
I am now back at work after a few weeks off and looking forward to meeting new people and renewing my connection with those I already know.
For anyone who may be wondering – I recently closed down my Twitter account. It had served its purpose (supporting and advocating for the sex work industry) at a time where it was under serious threat in Australia, so it was no-longer needed. I will continue to post here however.
So I want to wish everyone well and I look forward to hearing from you in the future!
As of July 1st, sex work will be legal again in NSW. So if you have been thinking of making a booking with me, then now is the time to drop me an email, or a text!
I am continuing to socially distance in my personal life (as well as wear a mask and hand sanitise regularly when in public) to reduce your risk if you come to see me.
I wanted to talk about [boring technical website stuff]. It’s not hugely important, but it’s worth a mention.
Some time next year, web browser makers (Mozilla Foundation and Google) are going to make a huge change to the way their browsers warn you about security of websites. In short they are going to warn you every time you visit a site if it doesn’t use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to send data back and forth to your web browser (it’s probably going to be super annoying for a while!). They are doing this to push publishers of websites (like me) to implement SSL and to make your browsing experience a little more private.
SSL (look for the HTTPS prefix in the address of this site and the padlock symbol to know it’s working) encrypts all data that is transferred between my server and your browser. People (like our governments) who care to snoop on our web browsing habits will still be able to see what URL’s you are visiting, but they won’t be able to see exactly what you are reading, or the contents of comment post you may post or similar (not unless they come and browse my website at least).
Any way, when I heard about this upcoming change I contacted my web host and have fully implemented SSL security on my website. So you can rest assured that when you browse my site that no-one is intercepting or modifying the content that gets sent to you. It’s just one more small thing to help protect your privacy.
Once again, it has been a long year, sometimes hard, but also filled with wonderful clients and new adventures.
I want to thank everyone for their contribution, for the fun, the great sex, the conversations shared, and the company. I am very lucky to meet the women and couples who I do. In every sense, you make my work and life possible.
So, thank you all. I hope you have a fun and safe holiday, and I look forward to 2016 and hopefully seeing you then!
Welcome to a brand new year. It seems to me (via observation of friends’ comments on Facebook) that 2013 has been a hard year for a lot of people. It was a challenge for me too on a number of levels. But I got through it, and along the way met some fantastic people, had a lot of good experiences and I would like to think, grew as a person.
The challenges that I went through have made it hard to write regularly for a few reasons, but I hope to be able to get back to more regular posts this year.
So in saying farewell to 2013 I would like to thank everyone I met, or continued to see through my work. At the end of the day, it’s all about you and you continue to make this the best job in the world.
Thank you and I hope that 2014 is a great year for you.
