Interview #7: Bubbles, Working Girl/Fetish Worker, 45 years old

Yesterday I also met Bubbles.  A woman who is larger than life itself, full of energy, spirit and laughter.  Bubbles is a working girl and likes to specialise in fetish…mainly submissive than dominant.  Although, she does describe herself as a dominant submissive…she is always in control.  Her clientele mainly consists of older men (in their 60s and 70s), cross-dressers and men who don’t necessarily want sex, just a cuddle or some companionship.

Getting in to the industry 8 years ago because she needed a new car, working in the industry changed her life, for the better she says. Although 2 years in she became a P addict, she has now been clean from P for 2 years.  Using for her was a form of escapism, not necessarily to get through the job, but to help keep up with the competition.  When prostitution became legal back in 2003, Bubbles realised that she now had competition that she didn’t before.

Bubbles place to escape is her balcony, she likes to sit out there and daydream, stare at the plants, have some alone time.  She describes it as her “run away place”.  It’s not far to run though (in my mind), especially when you are also working from home. When asked if she has an indulgence or addiction, Bubbles answers “Marijuana, men and sex”.  All three come under both categories.

I would like to thank the NZPC for helping put me in touch with Darla and Bubbles.  Without them these interviews would not have been possible.
