Iowa Criminal Lawyer Makes More Money Side-Hustling as a Prostitute
“Sex is fun, and I can get paid for it,” says Katherine, who has been supplementing her legal career income with something a little different.
A recent story has been making headlines as a criminal lawyer in Iowa, US, has revealed her secret to topping up her salary. According to Legal Cheek, Katherine Sears, mother to a four-month-old and happily married, works for Clark & Sears with her husband John, but has been making a ‘few’ extra bucks prostituting herself on the streets of Nevada, where prostitution is legal in the US.
The 30-year-old claims to make up to $55,000 (£44,500) in just three weeks on top of her salary from being a criminal defence lawyer. KCCI reports she has been doing this for three years, and her husband does not mind. In fact, Katherine wants to change the status quo on sex work and influence people’s negative view on prostitution.
“I like sex. Sex is fun, and I can get paid for it … I think the more we talk about it, the better our chances are of getting the decriminalisation that we’re pursuing. We’re not going to have legislation change if we’re passive about it,” says Katherine.
“Prostitutes are people. Prostitutes I’ve known are some of the best people I’ve known. I think a lot of people are upset about prostitution without understanding what it is they are being upset about. We degrade women who are open about sexuality. You’re supposed to be this way and if you’re not this way, you’re bad. So, I think it’s a lot of indoctrination.”
Moving forward, Katherine says she is taking a break from her side-hustle and focusing on family and her legal career.
