An ex-prostitute who became “addicted to money” and took on more clients than her “body could handle” exposed the dangers of sex work in an attempt to warn others to work in brothels.
Manchester-based Maeve Moon, who lived in Lancashire as a child before moving to Surrey while studying for a degree, first started out as a sugar baby.
She traveled to America with her Sugar Daddy where she began her two-year journey as a full-time escort – and continued to do so despite the impact it had on her health.
Now Maeuve, who is on her way to becoming a qualified psychotherapist and offers online courses for women on her Profit From Trauma site, has spoken out to help other young women who may be drawn into the sex industry by l idea of quick money. .
Talk inside her Youtube channel Profit From Trauma, as reported by Star of the day, she said: ‘I was initially charging £ 150 an hour and I remember him (the client) handing that £ 150 to me and I remember walking into my roommates’ room – I did in my student accommodation – and I was just slapping that money against my hand.

“£ 150 is absolutely nothing, absolutely nothing. But when you’re used to working for peanuts, £ 150, you’re crazy. ‘
However, it wasn’t long before the initial thrill subsided and the physical demand from the industry began to impact Maeve’s daily happiness.
“I got thinner and thinner and I let my self-esteem continue to drop, I allowed people to do things worse and worse to me,” she continued.
Maeve, who now warns others of the dangers of using their bodies as a “buyable and usable commodity,” went on to explain how she would let customers turn violent towards her – but added that she would justify it. telling themselves that at least they weren’t doing it to other women ”.
“I was getting addicted to money and it just got worse and worse; Maybe I would take more clients than my body can handle in a day, and then I would do it six or seven days a week, ”she told the publication. “And I couldn’t take it, so I would always be on and off.”
On her website, Maeve noted: “Towards the end of 2019 I found myself with pelvic inflammatory disease, copper poisoning, weed addiction, a central London apartment to pay for, and a life I hated beyond. of any measure. “

She went on to explain how she embarked on a spiritual retreat before leaving London – and vowed never to escort again.
She has since launched her Instagram page @profit_from_trauma, with Youtube, TikTok, and Spotify, and says she believes trauma can be leveraged in a number of ways – including emotionally, spiritually and financially.
Maeve told the Daily Star: “The most important thing that a young person tempted by sex work should know is this; if money weren’t an object, is that really what you would like to do with your life? ‘
“I know this logic applies to most jobs, but most jobs are not as physically and intimately intrusive, and both psychologically and potentially physically damaging in the long run, as sex work. Whether online or in person, it’s an intimate energy exchange that’s usually one-sided (sex worker> client) …. ‘
She went on to explain that for in-person clients, she thinks you share souls when having sex – so you take a piece of their soul and they take a piece of yours.
“A prostitute, a sweet baby or an escort can have sex more than 7 times a day, these are 7 random energies that enter their body and 7 souls that they will then carry,” she added.
Speaking to Femail, Maeve then discussed the long-term effects of sex work online and in person and asked the young girls to think carefully about the damage it can cause before going head-first.
“The long-term effects of potential dissociation, disengagement, PTSD, CPTSD, during intimacy and physical contact or intimate conversations with regular partners in the present and the future may be affected”, a- she explained. “And certainly your relationship with your own body will be a risk factor as soon as you transform your genitals and your sacred private regions into a buyable and usable commodity.”
She added: “The body is invaluable and it is the most loyal friend you will ever have.” Consider this, would you sell your best friend to a dirty bettor for £ 10 a month or £ 150 for an hour where he can tell her and do whatever he wants for his own sexual gratification? Probably not, because the money is not worth it. ‘
