OF COURSE. Why didn’t we think of that?
It’s the question a generation of women have been wrestling with.
Samantha X has the answer: Call girl.
OF COURSE. Why didn’t we think of that.
You might remember Samantha X. She used to be magazine journalist Amanda Goff, but she got tired of the incessant demands of champagne-fuelled product launches and afternoons spent at her desk, and decided to diversify.
What was the obvious choice for a single mum who wanted life to be that little bit more glamorous, less grindstone, more 50 Shades? Becoming Samantha X.
“Being separated with two young children and a succession of dates left me feeling dis-empowered,” she says. “I thought, ‘I’m a 38-year-old woman. I’m going to take the power back’.”
Watch Samantha X talk about her experiences on The Morning Show.
Samantha worked as an escort and then wrote a book about it, appearing on Sunday Night last year to talk about her experiences. She’s now doing the press rounds in the UK, appearing on morning TV shows to assure the women watching at home that maybe this flexible working solution could be the answer to work-life balance.
“What I’ve learnt is that children don’t need their parents to have a good job, like in banking, what they need is your time,” Samantha told This Morning.
