It’s no secret that many sex workers prefer to draw a line between their personal and professional lives, with “don’t date the clients” being a very common (if nonetheless sometimes disregarded) self-precaution. But why, exactly? Well, as Maggie McNeill explains, the answer includes all of the reasons you would expect, plus one or two that I would not have thought of, including:

Guys who imagine that sex workers’ sex drives are higher than those of amateur women, or that they’re always more open-minded about preferences and kinks that they’re not being paid to indulge.

That would be an easy (if unreflective) mistake to make, and as Maggie says, such a situation could “be hard for either party to tell apart from real affection.”
