The former husband of Sydney escort and former journalist Amanda Goff has spoken out, calling her revelation on Seven’s Sunday Night program a “disgrace”.
David Basha, a banker, told the Daily Mail: “It’s a disgrace. I have had to explain to my kids what’s going on.”
“I’m a good dad. I want to leave my kids out of this…I’m worried about my family, I just really want to leave my kids out of this,” he said.

Amanda Goff is a mother of two and a former magazine journalist who has worked at New Idea and InStyle.
She’s also a sex worker who earns up to $5000 per night to service men in her Sydney apartment — and she insists her lifestyle poses no threat to her children’s wellbeing.
“Children are teased mercilessly every day and their mother does not have to be working in the sex industry,” the 40-year-old Sydney media identity told Seven’s Sunday Night program.
“I think the world is changing. My kids are in classes with kids that have gay parents, lesbian mothers, they’re not ridiculed,” she said.
Ms Goff, known as Samantha X to her clients, revealed on the show that she began working at a Sydney bordello in 2012, and started out on her own 18 months later.
Speaking on Sunday Night to promote her new book Hooked – Secrets of a High-Class Escort, Ms Goff claimed she had learned “a lot about marriage from the man’s point of view” on the job.
“(The men) say they are not listened to, they aren’t heard,” she said.
“When you take a vow of marriage, men keep to it, they provide. Women need to keep to their side to the bargain,” she said.
“I feel for men, I feel they don’t have anyone to talk to.”
Goff added that her London-based parents no longer speak to her after she revealed her double life to them last year.
