Naughty New Orleans Network

Social meetups for local providers, dancers, escorts, anyone in the biz, etc. Anyone working in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, or the rest of Louisiana (or even along the Gulf Coast, if you want to drive that far) is welcome. No clients, no outsiders (unless otherwise stated).

On hiatus, because we’re all super busy and planning stuff is hard.

If you want to take this on, awesome! Let us know.

We can help with funding and refreshments, etc. For a lot of us, paying for stuff is easier than planning it. We are hoping and praying that’s not true for all sex workers in New Orleans, because we would love it if someone came along who really, really likes planning stuff

Movie Night to Celebrate Sex Workers Rights in New Orleans March 19 2013

Current or former sex workers: Why did you start doing sex work?

From the meeting on 1/23/14:

Reasons why women (all sex workers, but as their name suggests, WWAV focuses on female-identified people) choose to do sex work. They want a variety of sex workers represented in this project, so they have requested help from us. What they need is brief explanations/quotes from us about why we chose to go into sex work.

If you are or ever have been a sex worker (anyone who works in the sex industry, regardless of the type of work you do or its criminal status), we want to hear from you!

You may submit anything from a short sentence to a story.

You may use the comments section of this page to submit your answer anonymously. Thanks!
