Teachers can substitute for pornography, say pornhub jobs
Teachers can work as sex-starved webcam sex stars in schools and as sex workers in adult entertainment businesses.
The problem is that many teachers who do these jobs have a history of being sex workers.
“They’re really good at making money doing it,” said Laila Besh, a teaching assistant in Los Angeles who has worked in the industry for two decades.
“I mean, they’re really nice, and they’re doing great, but it’s not the way you’re supposed to do it.”
Teachers who do this work tend to have a reputation for being a bit of a risk-taker.
A study released in May by the New York-based nonprofit National Center for Education Statistics found that teachers who work in the adult entertainment industry are more likely to have been convicted of sexual assault than teachers who have been employed in other kinds of educational settings.
Sex workers also tend to be much more likely than other teachers to have used illegal drugs, according to the study.
Teaching assistants, meanwhile, can often be more vulnerable than their colleagues, said Besh.
When a teacher gets caught, “They’re basically screwed,” she said.
“You’re on the hook to pay for your own bail, to pay to get a lawyer to get you off the streets.”
While most teachers have done this work for years, there are a few who are taking it seriously.
The National Education Association, for instance, has a “Sex Worker Safety and Education Act” that would require sex workers to have an occupational license, and schools have been using it to help students learn about consent and how to prevent sexual assault.
The National Association of Sex Work Resource Centers is working to pass similar legislation, but for now it’s focused on educating parents and students about how to protect themselves.
While it’s difficult to know what impact the bill could have, Besh said that while her experience in the business has been positive, there is a lot of misinformation out there about sex workers and how they can be trained.
“It’s really hard to make that transition from being a sex worker to being a teacher,” she told Business Insider.
It’s easier said than done, because many sex workers who do teach are afraid to report abuse, Bresh said.
But for sex workers, the work can be transformative, she said, adding that the work makes a difference in their lives.
“If I can do this for someone and then do something for someone else, then I feel better about it,” she added.
