Full Herald Sun Interview, 2024

What led you to enter this industry, and what attracted you to it?

At 18, I briefly worked as a stripper in a well-known Melbourne club before shifting my focus to studying and being in relationship. I studied and was working as a social worker, Following the end of that relationship, I returned to stripping on weekends, only to find that the industry had evolved. Curious about other opportunities, I encountered a high-end companion from Sydney who was mentoring young women. Nervously, I met her one night at the grand Hyatt in Melbourne, and that moment marked the start of my journey as Hope Morgan. Please read my blogs via my website to gain more insight into my full journey.

What is one thing that surprised you about it once you were in the business?

One of the most unexpected and delightful aspects of my journey as an elite companion has been the remarkable people I've had the privilege of meeting. I've encountered individuals from all walks of life, some of whom have left a lasting impression on me and have significantly broadened my understanding of the world. These encounters have been truly inspiring and have enriched my life in ways I couldn't have imagined when I first embarked on this path.

I've had the opportunity to connect with people whom I might not have crossed paths with in other circumstances, and these connections have been incredibly meaningful and fulfilling. The diversity of experiences and perspectives I've encountered has expanded my worldview and deepened my appreciation for the unique qualities each person brings to the table.

One thing that has surprised me about this line of work is the freedom it offers. The ability to shape my own schedule and tailor my work to fit my lifestyle has been remarkably empowering. This freedom has allowed me to fully embrace and find joy in what I do, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. The autonomy and flexibility have fueled my passion for my work, and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue on this fulfilling path.

What is something you think would surprise the average person about sex workers?

Many people might be surprised to learn about the realities of being a sex worker. As someone who works in this profession in Australia, I want to emphasize that I have actively chosen this path and approach my work as a legitimate business owner would. I take great pride in what I have achieved and in the way I conduct my business, and it's important to recognize that the common stereotypes perpetuated by movies and media do not accurately represent the diverse experiences within the industry. I am grateful to live in a country where the profession is legalized, which provides me and others in this field with the freedom to make our own choices and have our work recognized and protected by the law.

What are the drawbacks of working in the industry aside from the stigma?

Regrettably, stigma is likely to persist. I hope for a future without stigma. Personally, I find that the downsides can be feelings of isolation and loneliness at times. It's crucial to maintain connections with friends and engage with others in the industry to build a support network. Finding a healthy work-life balance is essential; it's easy to forget to switch off. Prioritising diet and exercise is crucial to avoid burnout or illness. It's important to stay grounded and not become too absorbed in the glitz and glam of the industry.

In what ways does the stigma surrounding sex work affect your daily life, if at all?

I have a strong sense of confidence and pride in my identity and profession. However, there are moments when I feel compelled to fabricate details about my occupation due to concerns about facing judgment. While it can be disheartening to resort to this behavior, it is an unavoidable aspect of the industry. Being a sex worker is challenging, requiring a resilient and desensitised mindset, as one is frequently subject to gossip, scrutiny, and criticism.

What does a typical day look like for you?

In today's industry, prioritising health is crucial for longevity. I kick off my day by hitting the gym to exercise and keep my body fit and healthy. After that, I return home, whip up a smoothie, check my schedule, respond to messages and emails, and take care of administrative tasks. Additionally, there's always some beauty treatments that need my attention – it's almost like a full-time job! My days are packed with activities, and if I have evening bookings, I start preparing and getting ready for the night.

Do you envision yourself ever exiting the industry? If so, what do you think you would pursue?

I faced a significant health challenge last year, and it made me contemplate the possibility of having to leave my work. The prospect saddened me deeply, as I am passionate about what I do and was determined not to let illness dictate my future. Fortunately, I have emerged from that difficult time and am immensely grateful to be able to carry on with my career. I don't anticipate an end in sight; I have cultivated a strong personal brand and am among Australia's distinguished and highly sought-after companions. This year, I am excited to publish a book that will chronicle my journey from starting as an escort to being featured as a centerfold, and will also delve into the details of my health struggle last year. I look forward to sharing my story and the unexpected challenges I've faced. Despite it all, my perseverance and strength have propelled me forward and will continue to do so.
