So long, 2021—don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out. Frustration and fear aside, one must remain optimistic if we are to survive a pandemic, climate change and the simultaneous collapse of Western civilization. Big smiles, everybody! One of the umpteen reasons we love sex workers so much is that they’re tough as nails and more resilient than a Central Park squirrel (those guys are tough). We asked seven fierce performers and content creators to share their aspirations for 2022—positivity is in short supply these days, so let’s re-up your sense of optimism with a new “can do” attitude!
Madi Collins: “My resolutions for 2022 include taking more time to enjoy my hobbies (playing music, skating, being outdoors, writing, hanging out with family, etc.), cooking more to avoid food delivery (lol) and to eat healthier—as well as truly embracing my sexuality even more in the next year than I have in the past. I think the last one is my biggest resolution, because even as open as I am sexually, I’m always learning more about who I am as a person through being open to change and growth, including sexual growth. I think it’s really cool that I get to do it publicly for others to see my journey of firsts, and I want to continue on this amazing journey of self-exploration for the upcoming year and many more to come!” Twitter: @MADICOLLINSXO
MelRose Michaels: “I want to expand Sex Work CEO, a resource hub for adult entrepreneurs, to better serve the community. I also hope to expand my line of apparel (Networthy) and grow into my role as a sex work advocate. 2022 is my year!” Twitter: @MelRoseMichaels
