This teen sex worker makes more than $2K a night—and explains how she sees up to 21 clients a day.
A 19-year-old sex worker has given us a closer glimpse at her occupation in a new documentary on sex work by Channel 5.
During a recent Adults Only segment, Ellie, from Nottingham, said she's close to earning six figures per year, thanks to her sex work.
In the show, the teen, who has been in the industry for three years, takes a trip to a hotel in Manchester. She already has two clients to attend to.
The teen reveals she charges around $91 (£70) for every 15 minutes a client gets to spend with her.
And Ellie's in demand so much that she is left with virtually no time between appointments. Sometimes, she sees clients just two minutes apart.
So, she can earn up to $2,000 in just one night, which is equivalent to seeing 21 clients.
Speaking on the show, she says:
Obviously, my first client has me fresh, with my make-up and my hair done. But once my first client's gone, I have to keep it up.
I have to have a shower, have an outfit change.
Sometimes it is literally like five minutes—two to five minutes—sometimes I have 30 minutes, it all depends on what people's booked in.
On top of maintaining her image in between appointments, Ellie reveals working in a hotel can present some challenges.
She explains she's always selective with the hotels she uses because many have made it impossible for sex workers to operate in their rooms.
I have to look for hotels that don't have a keycard system. So you can just go straight in the lift straight up to the room without a keycard.
Most hotels are on it now. They are using keycard systems to keep escorts working from hotel rooms.
Ellie also says it's important the hotel doors have peepholes, so she can check who's knocking before opening.
If you got like a peephole, you can actually see the client that's knocking on your door before you actually open that door.
For me, that door is like a safety.
Ellie still lives with her parents; that's why she uses hotels for her work. And despite cash rolling in, she isn't keen on moving out.
Apart from her clientele, Ellie also runs an OnlyFans page where she earns around $5,200 a month from her 500 subscribers.
