There’s a content warning on this episode: talk of suicide, and there’s also some graphic language
Rita Therese is her pen name. Gia is her sex worker name. Her real name is a secret, to protect her privacy.
After beginning as a waitress at bucks' parties, Rita Therese has spent most of her twenties earning a living in the sex industry - as well as topless and nude waitressing, working in brothels and as a FIFO sex worker in mining towns.
Now, she's written a memoir called COME, which shares experiences many of us might not have had before but are curious to understand better. There’s also been deep
heartbreak, and Rita Therese is candid and honest about it all.
In this episode of No Filter, Rita Therese takes us inside her life as a sex worker.
Order Come by Rita Therese.
