Portland, OR (PRWEB) December 10, 2010
Five years ago, Ashly Lorenzana began her work as a female escort in the Portland, OR area after a surprising discovery. She found out that her mother was advertising her own escort services online in the now extinct Craig's List "Erotic Services" section. After observing her mother's considerable success working as an escort and generating an impressive income, curiosity got the better of her and she couldn't help but post her own ad on CL to see what would happen.
"The response to that first ad was overwhelming," says Ashly. She continues,"Craig's List really was the place to advertise for escorts up until very recently, I met 90% of my clients through the website. It was interesting watching all the controversy surrounding 'erotic services' in the last few years, and I was a little saddened to see it finally removed from the site."
Despite her disappointment that CL removed the "Erotic Services" section, Ashly began posting and working as an escort before she turned eighteen, which is one of the many reasons why CL was pressured by law enforcement and other legal entities to shut it down. Many young women working in the sex industry struggle with drug addictions, and Ashly was no exception. Throughout her career as an escort, she was a heavy drug abuser and suffered many consequences related to her methamphetamine addiction.
"Sex, Drugs & Being an Escort" is written and reads more like a blog or diary than a traditional book, though Ashly assures readers that every detail was included, however sensitive or controversial the subject matter may have been.
