Saige used to work as a sex worker, though she preferred the term “sexual healer.” She believes that at the core, everybody just wants to feel loved and cared for, and being able to provide her clients with that is what was truly rewarding.

“People walk away feeling happy so that makes me happy, that’s why I did it. The dynamic between a client and sex worker is really hard to explain and I don’t think anyone except those two people can understand it.”
