Women: Have you ever dreamed about being a prostitute, but not the yucky street-walking kind? Maybe you were afraid of being called “whore” or “criminal defendant.” Well, a retired, Texas-born hooker has now written a pair of how-to books for you to get off your foot and on your back for your dream job!
Amanda Brooks’s Internet Escort’s Handbook series gives tips for how to advertise online, and how to handle the "basic mental, emotional and physical considerations in escort work.” Plus, you can keep up with her on her blog, After Hours. (You can get her musings on topics like pimps, who she apparently dislikes: “My belief is that the business follows the pussy, not the pimp.”)
Brooks got her start around Dallas and eventually moved to Vegas – and if a hooker can make it there, she can make it anywhere! This is one pro who knows what she’s talking about, so dive right in! – Craig Malisow
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
