Honestly I never saw myself in sexwork before I chose to enter the field. It most certainly wasn’t my first career choice and yet here I am.



Growing up in West Palm Beach, Florida I came from a typical working class American family, one parent a school teacher and the other a postal worker. Some miltary background on both sides so it wasn’t a surprise when I decided to join the Navy outta high school. SHIT PAY but I couldn’t beat those benefits.

After what seemed like forever but in reality only five short years I got out the Navy, came back to America( I lived in Okinawa, Japan for my enlistment), moved to San Antonio, Texas and begun my journey of acclimatization back into a unknowingly brutal american society.

Intially tried to live life navigating through the workforce living with a friend holding two jobs also going to school for dental hygiene falling into the typical working class belief that degrees meant I can get a better job and make more money funnel system. I was doing all that and trying to strip three to four nights out the week, still not able to make ends meet.


Things didn’t work out like Id planned it too, after school didn’t get the job like I had foreseen. Had to continue working those two dead end jobs and dancing which was taking an incredible toll on me. Completely burnt myself out and ran myself to ground physically and mentally. Literally had a mental breakdown. Just gave up on life and became homeless.


After four months of being extremely down on myself and severely depressed living in my car having friends send me money for food and gas and the occasional motel I made a decision that would change the trajectory of my life forever. I borrowed $30 from a friend, just enough to by a throw away visa for an Ad on Backpage found some “close enough“ body pictures on google and a pack of 3 condoms so I could prepare to do what I had to do to no longer be living in my car. That night I made like $300 and it completely changed my whole entire outlook on everything. I remember working my ass off, enduring misogyny/racism/sexual harassment to make $300 after two weeks of work and I made that shit within a night. I’m sure there’s someone asking themselves well you could’ve did that dancing since you were already doing that before homelessness....so the thing about dancing is this it can be a gamble when your already desperate. Sometimes I would pay these healthy ass house fees and not make a dollar in the club. I couldn’t take that risk with my last $30 dollars.


Sex workers are the only folks of middle/lower class society that has the ability of upward financial momentum. Ive come a long way in this business, been blessed to have experienced more positive than negative. I’ve met some lifetime friends and some people whom I would never want within my presence again if I could help it. Navigating through sexwork has become the most vital aspect of my emotional maturity as a woman and person. At first it was just a means to get by but I realized if I focused and developed a brand/vision I could create something extremely profitable with longevity. I could create my own small business. Which is exactly what I did. Already being a people person with tons of experience from the Navy made it a lot easier. Sexwork opened doors for me and continues to open doors. It was one of the hardest decisions to make but definitely one of the better decisions Ive made in my life.

I saw a thread on SW Twitter the other day talking about how part of the success in sex work came from luck, and as I was reading the thread all I could think was how much of a slap in the face and how that type of general blanket statement can set new sexworker’s up mentally for failure.

Firstly success when it comes to anything in life is not about luck…success comes from consistency. For example 2 1/2 years ago after the fosta/sesta laws were put in place I decided to start engaging in online sex work and making content. If I would’ve went into content creating actually believing that my success it’s about me getting lucky being in the “right place right time” would’ve completely set me up for failure mentally. There was a lot of ups and downs in the beginning getting adjusted to a new aspect of sex work that I never engaged in before, But I am here to tell you as someone who came into sex work as an escort and successfully branded myself within content creating… that was all due to hardwork, strategy, and CONSISTENCY nothing else‼️

I think it’s very unrealistic and ignorant to tell people that a part of success comes from luck when in reality the road to success looks different for some people based on many different factors like race, class, and gender. I can say with complete confidence that I am a successful sex worker when it comes to online work and in real life work and that success did not come without hard work, strategy, and consistency.

Don’t believe the hype

A Tryst Interview with Jacksonville escort Estelle Angelique

by Lola Hunt

2021-04-23

One of the biggest battles sex workers face in 2021 is the stigmatization of their work. Harmful stereotypes and false narratives are continually perpetuated by the mainstream non sex working press and it's about time that changed. Each week we chat to workers from across the globe to give you a better understanding of our work, what you can do to help and what we're really like! This week we chat to Jacksonville escort, Estelle Angelique about how she got started, decriminalisation and online sex work.



Tell us your story, how did you get into the industry and what has your journey looked like thus far?

What introduced me to sex work was my desperate need for financial stability. At the time of my life when I started sex work I was on the verge of homelessness shortly after I became homeless and realized that regular workforce jobs weren’t going to get me out of homelessness I had to muster the confidence to try something else. My journey has been a pretty rough but I was to build something successful and plentiful from my desperation

What are some of your hobbies and interests outside of work?

I love to read and watch Sci-Fi/Fantasy. I enjoying painting and stargazing. Working out has to be one of my favorite ways to destress and wind down. I’m a foodie, so I enjoy eating and trying new foods.

We know sex workers are experiencing censorship online, what have your experiences been with this?

I’ve been relatively fortunate to not have experienced much censorship outside of the community wide censorship (losing platforms) and I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to navigate it safely as I can through the censorship because I’ve had quite a few friends who have gotten social accounts banned and bank account shut down.

As sex workers, we face a number of challenges in our line of work. What is one issue you care about and how do you think your clients can help sex workers?

An issue that I care about when it comes to challenges faced by sex workers and an issue I wish more clients cared about is respecting SW’s the same anyone who monetizes off their labor. Clients could be more helpful to sex workers by respecting sex workers protocols do's and don’ts.

Why do you think it is important for sex work to be decriminalised and how do you think it would impact your work?

Decriminalization of sex work is very important due to the fact that there’s so many issues within the business that could be resolved through decriminalization and because it’s an underground business it exposes sex workers to harsher realities and outcomes due to not having resources and help.

When you’re feeling burnt out, what do you do to make yourself feel better?

When I’m feeling burnt out from work I like to take a long milk baths. I also like to take time off where I’m just focused on myself and relaxing and recalibrating

How would you describe your dream date?

Fly’s me out to a cannabis ranch where I can run the fields smoking joints butt naked then have a picnic in the field together

Is there anyone in the industry you consider a role model or someone you looked up to when you first started your journey?

Are European black Dom very well-known black Dom named Madame Carmel

You manage not only do in person work, but also online work across a number of platforms. Do you have advice for workers starting out in online work?

Online work is a journey and one that takes diligence in the navigation I started off very slow and at my own pace and built my online catalog over the last 2 1/2 years. My advice for workers starting online work would be to take your time when forging your content and trying to create your brand it’s not a rush it’s not going to happen overnight but with patience and consistency you can truly build a successful solid online brand.

What are some of your favorite places to visit in Jacksonville?

Riverwalk and Jacksonville Zoo.

My favourite thing to be gifted is: Chanel or Marc Jacobs perfume

One of my simple pleasures is: sipping hot chocolate with liquor in it

If you were going to buy me a drink you should buy me a: Bloody Mary or Fruity Cocktail

I get the biggest thrill out of: Rollercoasters

My favorite scent is: Chanel Chance
