Sex Work and Sobriety

We talk to sex workers who reclaimed their lives from the jaws of addiction and are now sober and living life to its fullest.

Life is hard, that is an empirical truth. Sometimes, things can quickly get out of hand and take us to a place we never thought we’d end up. Drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex and even shopping can consume our lives in a negative way. I had the absolute pleasure of speaking with some amazing sex workers who reclaimed their lives from the jaws of addiction and are now sober and living life to its fullest.

“You got this.”

“I feel like I’ve come alive again. I live my life with humility, recognize my past and present mistakes and am currently in the process of becoming a better person,” Andi Ray says of the benefits she’s already seen from a year-plus of sobriety. 

Andi decided to leave her old lifestyle behind after she reached a breaking point and was hit with an epiphany. “One day, I realized that I couldn’t keep this game up any longer … It felt like insanity. I was desperate for a different life,” she recalls. 

Andi’s recovery process wasn’t initially easy by any means—she was affected hard physically for the first month—but things slowly got better. “Within two months, I finally felt [the] brain fog lifting. I was sleeping a lot (which I felt guilty about), but I was reminded that getting sober isn’t easy and to honor my body’s needs,” she recalls. “When I hit three months, my emotions that I had buried for 13-plus years finally started coming out.” 

Society often assumes that a majority of XXX stars are into the party lifestyle, even to a degree of excess, but Andi sets the record straight on this misconception about sex work. “I would say addiction is addiction, but [don’t] stereotype people just because of their profession,” Andi advises. “Ask before assuming.”
