This is where society has it all wrong about sex work.
Sex work is a profession which must be respected like any other. Having lost her mother when she was only 11 years old, she and her siblings struggled after the death of the matriarch.
Men took to Reddit to discuss what it's like to have a partner who sells her body, with some commenters put off by the idea - and others claiming that sex workers make the best girlfriends.
Sometimes, people who date sex workers are concerned about their health and the risk of contracting infections, explains Liteboho Rantsi*.
Thamae’s advice to other men is that sex workers are human beings and should be seen as human first before anything else.
“They deserve the happiness that can be found in love like everyone else,” he concluded.
Rantsi, who has been a sex worker for three years narrates the ordeal that lead to her meeting the love of her life two years ago.
Sex work has long been criticised and stigmatised in our society and it has never been regarded as a serious profession.
