A Tryst with Jacksonville escort Eva Parker

. 10 min read

One of the greatest joys of working on Tryst.link has been connecting to Sex Workers from a wonderful array of different backgrounds and experiences. Our series, A Tryst with, provides Sex Workers on Tryst with a space to tell their story without a third party filter. Join us as we chat to Jacksonville escort, Eva Parker, about her conflicting entrance into the sex industry, Final Fantasy and inappropriate questions non sex workers ask.

Tell us your story, how did you get into the industry and what has your journey looked like thus far?

To make a very long story short, I started SW when I was 18 and fresh into college, and it definitely wasn’t something I was planning. A small accident (spilled roommates’ coffee all over the sidewalk) occurred and the man that started it all pulled up in his van with his employee to start whatever they drove in for, saw me in the process and offered to help me out. I was a graphic design student at the time so he wanted to interview me for potential work for his office. He was the president of his own company and even had a high position working for the Florida government, but what I didn’t know was that he was also running a ring of girls to work for him ‘entertaining’ male clientele. I soon learned about it once we realized I wasn’t a good candidate for his legitimate business, and two nights later I lost my virginity to him.

Even though I didn’t feel like I was forced into anything, it was all very conflicting. On one hand, I was very sheltered at the time and went by the mindset that sex for money was wrong. On the other hand, he handed me $200 just for playing around for not even half an hour, and I was a starving artist/student with no car/job/nothing so I couldn’t deny that I was happy about it. For about a month or two after, he’d call up clients (most were friends that he knew) to set them up with me, we’d meet at his house where he left us alone, we did our thing, client paid the man, man took his cut and gave me the rest. So he was lowkey pimping me and the other girls - and thankfully he wasn’t the type to take ALL the money or lay his hands on me if things got bad, but that didn’t change the fact that he was essentially a pimp.

I stopped talking to and seeing him after a year, shortly after I got my associate's degree, and since then my intrigue by the rest of the industry had grown. I tried everything from webcamming, phone sex operating, virtual adult game ‘providing’, adult modeling, amateur pornography... Currently, I’m an exotic dancer of 6+ years, and naturally, the appeal of getting back into companionship loomed in the back of my mind. Then a year or so ago I finally forced myself to make an account on Tryst and a few other platforms, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

What are some of your hobbies and interests outside of work?

I’ve been an avid reader and writer since childhood. Unfortunately, my schedule doesn’t give me the quiet luxury of reading the plethora of books that I have in my study for very long, so I’ve taken advantage of audiobooks so that I can still enjoy my favorite writings or enjoy new ones audibly while I also focus on my tasks or travel. For fiction my selections fall within Fantasy or Sci-Fi, and non-fiction is where my intrigue of Environmental Science, Mythology, Psychology, and a bit of Economy fall into place. I’d much rather be holding a physical book to flip through the pages while lounging on the balcony or in a hammock, but sometimes adapting to alternative means of entertainment and knowledge isn’t a bad thing!

Is there a book, tv show, or movie that has had a significant impact on your life? What was it, and what did it teach you?

As silly as it sounds, WALL-E is one of my all time favorite movies and I could watch it every single day without getting sick of it. Outside of the unique characters/robots, hilarious interactions, and development that occurs throughout the film, the overall moral/plot of the whole film really struck a chord in me when I watched it for the first time as an adult - We should treat our bodies and our homeland as a temple as much as we can, otherwise let your health or quality of living become unsustainable. This movie gave me a gentle push towards my interest in environmental science, understanding climate change, and slowly but surely going Green. Even if there are times when I don’t have the motivation to look after myself, I have no issues in finding ways or donating to causes that help take care of the Earth; because I want the future generations to come to live comfortably and I want the present wildlife to remain alive and safe in their natural territories.

I saw that you're a bit of a gamer! What are some of your favorites and are there any upcoming games you're excited about?

The Final Fantasy series has a permanent place in my heart, and my favorite out of the series is IV. The only ones I haven’t beaten are V, VI, and XV. I’m currently addicted to playing the MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV and playing a badass Lalafell that mains black mage. I’m very much looking forward to the Endwalker expansion that is coming out near my birthday (in November), so my birthday plans will revolve around playing it. Haha!
Other favorite games include classics such as Chrono Cross, Brave Fencer Musashi, Legend of Dragoon, and Metal Gear Solid. I would go down the list of all of my favored games, but then I’d be writing and you’d be reading for a  v e r y  long time.

As sex workers, we face several challenges in our line of work. What are some issues you care about, and how do you think your clients can help sex workers?

My biggest complaint that seems to never cease to lessen is that a lot of ‘clientele’ don’t see us as professional as we market ourselves. We invest time and money into marketing, presentation, self-care, assistants, travel, everything you can think of that a legitimate business would do - including legal matters like obtaining an LLC or business license. We do all this just to be greeted with messages on an annoyingly regular basis that only consist of “hey” “hi babe” “r u available” “u free” like we’re laying around just waiting for someone to reach out in any way, shape or form. You wouldn’t talk to your server, dentist, lawyer, or repairman like that so it’s absolutely aggravating to think that it’s acceptable to address us as if all the work we put in to offering our services is equivalent to the quality of a Tinder profile.

Why do you think it is important for sex work to be decriminalized and how do you think it would change the way you work?

I would probably be more open about what I do for work around my peers . . . maybe. However, the one thing I’m looking forward to upon decriminalization is never having to feel uneasy about what if this-or-that happens or dealing with that ‘hunch’ in the back of my mind that I more often than should get due to my chronic anxiety. Not that I’m saying that crime or violence will come to a complete stop, but there will actually be away to fight against it without the fear of legal repercussions and those that have the intent of ill will against a sex worker will think twice about it.

Do you think your view of the world has changed since starting sex work, and if so, how?

To be honest, not really. It just seems more so as I explore more positions in the adult industry, be it with companionship or something else, it seems I learn more and more about the clientele’s mindset or opinions as to why other SWers follow or don’t follow certain protocols that I otherwise wouldn’t have thought of before. It just seems like there’s always something new to learn the longer I stay within the business. But as far as I know, it could have been like this for a long time even before I started sex work because I had a sheltered life until I turned 22 or so. It’s just interesting to me to keep learning all of the dynamics.

What do you think the public should know about the sex industry and sex workers?

We are just as human as the next person working 9 to 5 and we have plenty of bad days as well. This is far from taking the “easy route” as you really need to have a tough mental wall and patience to see the success that we are all often stereotyped as receiving with little effort. How we are on the job does not always equate to how we are in our personal lives because to SWers this is just a job - a fun job, but still a job. After finishing the last call of the day, I can’t wait to get home, cuddle the cats, toss my wig off, and see who all is streaming on Twitch like the complete nerd I am.

The other thing I think people should come to terms with is that sex work has been around since the beginning of time (however you believe that came to begin) and there is no way to stop it. Every attempt ever made to strictly regulate or demolish our jobs and source of income has yet to completely succeed. There will always be loopholes and ways to keep our work going. Most of us are not trafficked or working slave labor as the common media would like you to believe, but the day that comes when sex work is decriminalized will be the day that those that ARE in that position will be in a much safer position and can seek the help they need for a better quality of living - and for us who are simply trying to work independently, reduce the ridiculous number of hoops we have to jump through to safely provide our services.

When you're having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better?

The quickest thing I can do is lay down, turn on an audiobook and cuddle my cats for a while, but usually if I’m currently obsessing over a particular video game I’ll just play that for several hours while ignoring any phone or email notifications. Or I can schedule a sensory deprivation/float tank session and just let myself drift into complete nothingness and peace for at least an hour or two. One other thing I often find myself doing when I’m aggravated or upset is planning more visual ideas for potential tattoos that I want in the future as I have a love/hate relationship with tattoo needles. I may even toss some emotional eating into the mix and buy a multitude of grilled cheese sandwiches from my local gourmet grilled cheese restaurant (If you haven’t been to one before, what are you even doing with your life??) or a cheese platter from any whole foods/farmers’ market store… with no intention of sharing! Yes, I’m a cheese lover.

As sex workers, we're often asked some fairly inappropriate questions by the public. In your opinion, what should non sex workers avoid asking sex workers and why?

The most common and probably the most frustrating question I often get from civvies (mostly customers at strip clubs) is “does your boyfriend know/care that you do this?” usually followed by some obnoxious statement about how we must not have any trust issues or what he would think if he was my partner. A very big portion of the clients I entertain at the club are married or have a partner, but it is not within my service or moral compass to question what they’re doing buying full contact dances from me or whatever else, so it’s absolutely baffling when I get asked this question on a semi-regular basis. If you want us to mind our business about your personal life, then we simply ask that you do the same with ours.

What would your dream date look like?

Any date that involves traveling. Cheese shop hopping or watching a Cirque Du Soleil performance in their home in Montréal? I’m definitely down. Checking out the hostess bars, sushi bar hopping or a shopping spree at the Square Enix store in Tokyo? All for it. Beer tasting and romantic walk through the Schloss Herrenchiemsee in Germany? Let’s do it… or if you just want to stop by the Slutty Vegan in Atlanta, that’s fine too!

My favorite scent is: Fresh bean-ground coffee first thing in the morning. That is the only thing I want to smell as soon as I wake up.

My favorite restaurant is: The Melting Pot! Because who doesn’t like dipping literally anything and everything in hot decadent cheese or chocolate?

If you were to buy me a drink at a bar, you should buy me: A glass of Luccio’s Moscato, filled to the rim - none of this half glass nonsense!

My favorite thing to be gifted is: A bouquet of gift cards for Steam or the Playstation Store. Oh wait a minute, that’s not sexy enough... a big box of Bluebella lingerie surrounded by a ring of Steam gift cards. Much better.

A social cause I care about is: Climate Change and Animal Rights Issues.
