  • 'I felt no shame': Former student, 27, who earned thousands from sex with clients as old as 80 reveals she 'loved every minute' of her stint as an escort (and says 'whoredom was my destiny')

    A former sex worker who spent two years working as a $260-an-hour escort has revealed how the biggest downside to her work was the pain of being judged for working as a prostitute.

    Andrea Werhun, 27, from Toronto has written a book, Modern Whore, in collaboration with filmmaker Nicole Bazuin to reveal what it's really like to be a sex worker in the hope of sweeping away judgments.

    The book tells how she experienced a 'conversion' when she went to a strip club and desperately wanted to be as strong and sexy as the performers before becoming an escort for an agency called Toronto Sirens, having sex with clients as old as 80.

    'I felt no shame about having sex with people for money,' Andrea told FEMAIL.'I like money and I like sex – so what’s the problem? The shame I felt was the shame of others.

    'Thankfully, I recognise the societal shame of sex workers as a reflection of our individual reluctance to acknowledge the importance of sexuality in our own lives, informed by a few thousand years of indoctrination that sex is bad, and whores are worse.
