A Tryst with Melbourne escort Amy Pond

. 3 min read

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

The sex work industry fascinated me since the first time a watched “Dangerous Beauty” and “The Moulin Rouge”. I was that little girl who fantasized about growing up to be a sex worker. A world of mystery, enjoyment and desire - how could I not fall in love with the idea? It wasn’t until my early twenties that I was comfortable enough within myself to dip my toe in. I suppose I jumped in headfirst considering I went from a typical office job straight into escorting hahaha. There is a sincerity, a kindness, a connection in escorting that is simply beautiful. I can honestly say I have never looked back and I can’t imagine doing anything else.

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

Outside of escorting I have a lot of hobbies. I enjoy everything from playing video games, watching sci-fi and fantasy series, sculpting, puppetry, painting, gardening, reading, skiing, snorkelling, traveling and oh and let’s not forget eating! Nom nom nom.

What weird food combinations do you really enjoy?

Does pineapple on pizza count? I am one of those strange people who eat most things including chicken feet.

As sex workers we face a number of challenges in our line of work. What is one issue you care about and how do you think your clients can help sex workers?

For me, the biggest challenge in this industry is the stigma. It affects me daily and its exhausting. I am privileged to have friends and family who accept who I am and what I do, however I also know the utter heartbreak of those who would throw away an entire relationship based on misinformed preconceived ideas.

I do not pretend to know how to change the stigma around sex work. It is complicated for both the worker and the patron. All we can try to do is normalize the need to fulfill intimacy. It is a basic human need and should not be surrounded by shame. If workers and clients can promote decriminalization it is a step in the right direction.

You mentioned on Twitter that you’re bit of a video game enthusiast! What are some of your favorite games to play and what are you playing right now?

I am waiting excitedly for the release of “Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2” later this year and currently play an absurd amount of “Anno 1800” and “ARK: survival evolved”. Both games have involved many, many hours of gameplay and it’s awesome!

What is your go to piece of advice for workers just starting out?

Do your research; know the legality of what you are doing, where you are doing it. Know the support organizations for your state. Set boundaries and do not let yourself be bullied into crossing them. Always trust your gut instinct and don’t be afraid to ask for help.

My favorite restaurant is: Blackbird Café in Mornington is ever so cute and makes wonderful curries! Just watch out as the seagulls will steal your food off your plate.

My ideal date would be: An unrushed evening of snuggles and laughs. Simple. Beautiful.

If you were going to buy me a drink, you should order a: Tea. Always tea (Yorkshire Gold). If you would like to make me blush and perhaps giggle too much buy me a chocolate Baileys with milk.
