Selling sex between loads of laundry

(Vue Weekly, May 1, 2014)

Melody, a 29-year-old from British Columbia, is a touring escort, who travels from town to town, offering a service called “the girlfriend experience,” which is a type of sex work more personalized than traditional escort services.

In April she advertised for a few days at a time in Edmonton, Lac La Biche, Cold Lake, Bonnyville, Edson and Lloydminster, according to her Twitter account @DeviantMelody, where she tweets with other escorts and posts pictures of her horses. She lives in Winnipeg, but only technically.

“I’m never there, ever,” she says. “All winter, I was there 25 days of the whole winter. I have two horses there that I never get to ride. It sucks. That’s the downside.”
