Q 65

How does a sex worker deal with the occasional client who gets emotionally attached / falls in love with you? I have always wondered about that.

A

The best way to do it is prevention, making sure the context is clear and not leading them on.

If it does happen, a discussion is in order. Beyond that, it varies a lot from one sex worker to another. If it gets too intense, most will terminate the relationship.

Usually, if it's a benign form things will stay as they are. You have to remember, we are human beings too and the relationship we have with our clients is a real one if unusual (to most people). We don't dump a friend because s/he's a little different, do we? Or because s/he infatuated or in love with us, do we? It's the same in case of a client/sex worker relationships.
