Musings on Life with Kaia Sophia
Jan 20, 2020 Season 1 Episode 22
Sienna Hunter

Sienna is joined by Kaia Sophia who reads from a mini-essay she wrote in which she muses on escorting and life. Kaia is based out of Ottawa, ON.

“It’s not about empowerment and loving the work. Though many of us do love this job, not everyone does. Supporting sex workers and decriminalization is about safety, dignity, and respecting the right to make choices about our own lives even when our options are limited. Not everyone loves their jobs, but it costs money to live in this world. Sex workers deserve the right to choose their preferred form of labour and work safely.”  -Kaia
