There’s a former call girl going by the name of Samantha X who claims that being a sex worker doesn’t make a woman a bad mother.
Also known as Amanda Goff, the 43-year-old shares two children with ex-husband, Sydney banker, David Basha. At the moment she is dating Channel Seven’s rising star Ryan Phelan, 42.
The former call girl has now lashed out on Instagram to define a “bad mother.”
“To any woman out there who thinks their job as a stripper/sex worker/dancer/porn Star makes you a “bad mother”—- NO,” she wrote.
“Abusing and killing your kids makes you a bad mother. Not providing for them.”
She has worked at New Idea, Prevention and InStyle, appeared on Seven’s Sunday Night program to promote her new book Hooked — Secrets of a High-Class Escort. Back in September 2014, she explained how boredom at work led to her transition from a divorced mum to a highly paid escort.
It turns out that she would stare out the window of her Sydney office at “the grey buildings” and “fantasize about drinking champagne in a hotel room with a man”. Then one day she decided to visit a bordello on her lunch break. Two days later, she was having sex for money.
The fatal experience with post-divorce dating disasters and romantic “let downs” also contributed to her decision to become a sex worker, she said at the time. However, just last month, Samantha X announced she was quitting the escort business.
She now lives in Sydney and has also revealed she was quitting her job to focus on running her escort agency, Samantha X Angels. “I never thought I’d be writing this, but life works in wonderfully surprising and mysterious ways!” she wrote on her blog.
