Skip to comments.Woman tells how she turned to the sex industry to fund her studies

After it was revealed yesterday that an increasing number of women are using the sex industry to pay their way through university, one woman has told her story of stripping while studying. Emma Green, of Glamorgan, Wales, turned to stripping on a webcam for men and earned £200-a-week to fund her studies.
The 25-year-old, who studied multi-media design at Glamorgan University before spending another year at a beauty therapy college in 2009, says a normal part-time job was out of the question because of her intense course workload.

I think I read one time that studying multi-media design and beauty therapy can get pretty “intense”.
I think it’s just an excuse, not a real reason to do this sick stuff. How many more are getting roped into this and I have no idea on why, whe nthey could easily do better for themselves. Just party girls using this as a reason.
I agree with you.
I’m glad you understand; so many want to find every excuse to blame everyone but the women who do this. They blame the culture, the schools, the people who hire them, but quite frankly they are doign this to themselves.
Okay. I knew a woman in Portland, Oregon, who worked as a high paying call girl to fund her studies in Oceanography. No lie.
She said she made really good money in the sex trade, but wanted to do something else that required thought processing.
I think we have glamorized sluts and smut more than enough.
Not my own type, but certainly does not appear guilty. A softer smile would go a long way IMO, but my guess is the guys aren’t looking at her smile...
The article says she is 25. Well, that figure may be 25, but that face is 35.
“Well, that figure may be 25, but that face is 35.”
True; I also think she’s funding a boob-job instead of school...
Glam organ University?
Well, in general I agree with you completely. Our society has its values upside down.
But, a couple hundred bucks a week, "glamorous"? $15K a year? Nah, that's not glamorous, that's borderline poverty.
As for calling her a "slut", the article says she was "stripping on a webcam", not whoring, and not even stripping in a club, just in front of a camera in her room. Not that I would want my daughter doing it. But it's a lot tamer than your "slut" term indicates.
As for calling it "smut", ummmm, yeah, it is. But your computer doesn't force you to watch it, and there are a lot worse things out there, too. Personally, I avoid being offended by crap on the internet by plentiful application of the "okay, then don't go there" rule. It's easy to do. In fact I find that I avoid about 80% of the internet, simply because I have no desire to see what's there. The other 20% holds more than enough, ummm, "surprises".
“Nuts” is, I think, an accurate description of this female.
It does rather look that way. Might just be a push-up bra, though. I've been fooled more than once by those damn things... :)
There seems like there would be a irreversible moral slide downhill that you take when you decide to degrade yourself by selling your body for money. I have heard the stories for years of the supposedly moral woman stripping to support her kids or put herself through school. Yet all the strippers whose lives I have gotten to know the details of for they were part of some family I knew were self centered party girls who had substance abuse problems and often engaged in prostitution as they slid downward. I am no expert having only heard detailed stories from a few families, but I have yet to encounter the reality of the stripper with her act together. I am sure they must exist I think I heard about one on NPR once while on a long drive and you know everything they report is true. (sarc)
Good point; I’m pretty sheltered...when I go out, I go to an old man bar, so don’t see this much.
This kind of thing never happens in the US.
I mean really, could you imagine that some skank daughter of a guy who helped get a murderer off does a porn video and gets famous. Then her whole family get on TV and do nothing and make millions? She even has a fake wedding and makes millions and the public still supports her.
No, Americans are much too smart for that...
Crazy as a loon....and not 25.
But after a few Martini’s....
It is her choice. Wonder if the education she is receiving is worth the carnage to her psyche?
The off color lipstick and jpeg compression don’t do her face much justice, but the jury still comes in with a unanimous not guilty.
I knew a gal in college that danced topless at a local place.
Heck, I was playing blues and reggae at sleazy clubs as well as weddings and bar mitzvahs to pay my tuition, too. More honorable than the typical congress critter or local public serpent.
Definintely not guilty.
I once met an exotic dancer at a club one night who was working on her PhD in psychology. While sitting in my lap chatting, she told me all about her struggles with balancing her job with her studies. I was so impressed, I gave her an extra $20........
Based on this passage from Hosea, it seems as though God is more concerned with the behavior of the consumer than that of the sex industry worker...
I will not punish your daughters
when they turn to prostitution,
nor your daughters-in-law
when they commit adultery,
because the men themselves consort with harlots
and sacrifice with shrine prostitutes
a people without understanding will come to ruin!”
- Hosea 4:4
I once briefly dated a very pretty Ukranian girl with poor English that had her own big pad in the NYC financial district. I would estimate her rent to be in the $3000 ballpark. She was always free during the day and most evenings.
Her explanation: I nanny a few hours a week sometimes. She would sometimes mention prostitution (not about herself) and get into this strange depressed state. I was finally certain of it and confronted her after she left her second phone turned on while with me.
When we parted ways she said she's addicted to the lifestyle but wished she could do something else. It was causing depression and drug abuse that I found out about later.
It is still wrong. It is still slutty.
She probably doesn’t have too much damage now, but in the future she will when she is addicted to drugs.
It’s easy to get addicted, mainly since the money is seemingly so easy to make. In time though, it ends up taking it’s toll and yet, it’s so easy. Look at Heidi Fleiss; she went from a perky and such to a madam and is now a meth addict.
Note how many of these women who get into this have the most impractical university/college degree fields possible.
I’ve always believed if you really love what you do for a living, it isn’t work.
I don’t know if that woman followed her heart’s desire of working at sea. If she did, though, I’m sure she was happy and good at what she did.
I don’t care if she caught on Youtube blowing up Winsdor Castle...Not guilty.
