For this week's First-Person Shooter , a friendly sex worker named Alissa reached out to us on Twitter after we posted a call for new people with unique hustles to burn through two rolls of film. Part of the reason we like this column is that it gives us a brief vantage into world of someone with a distinct and specialized lifestyle, one that the average person might not have insight into otherwise. Alissa's photos of Sheri's Ranch , the legal brothel in Las Vegas where she's been working for six years, are no exception, as they illustrate that the life of a sex worker is certainly non-normative, though not something to stigmatize or be horrified by.
If anything, the environment looks clean, safe, and honest. Below, we talked about what life is like at the brothel, as well as how she got into sex work. VICE: What you get up to on your day? Alissa : First, my day starts with a an early workout in our gym then I make sure my room is set up with all my supplies I need for the week: Condoms, toys, cleaning supplies, lube, and more are set up and outfits are picked out.
I like to switch between lingerie and sexy dresses—heels are required! When my hair and make up is finished, I go check my emails for scheduled appointments and potential clients. I meet clients who don't book appointments in advance at our sports bar or through a line-up with the other girls before luring them back to my room. Once there, we negotiate pricing and discuss the details of our time together.
The payment is brought to the shift manager in our office and I input the "party" information in our computer system—a "party" is what we call our sessions together at the ranch. At the end of our party, I bring my client back to our parlor where our hostess assures they had a good time and they go back to our sports bar or back to their car or our limo service with a smile.
I clean up and wait for the next client. I end my day back in my room and wind down with a good book or conversations with friends who are working that week. How long have you been doing sex work? And how long at Sheri's Ranch? I have been a sex worker since January , first working illegally as an escort in Seattle. Eight months later, I learned a safer and legal way to work and have been at Sheri's Ranch ever since—it's been six years now.
