Rosara Torrisi, founder of LIIST, quoted in today’s Village Voice article about college students utilizing sex work as a means to pay for college tuition.

>>According to Rosara Torrisi, a sex therapist at the Long Island Institute of Sex Therapy and Ph.D. candidate in Widener University’s Human Sexuality Program who counsels a number of sex workers, it is not unusual for them to encounter difficulties with romantic partners. She says her clients often struggle to distinguish their work–sex life from their love–sex life and encounter resistance from partners who have a hard time understanding what they do. “There’s a certain amount of jealousy and concern about honesty,” she said. Sex workers often experience anxiety and occasionally depression, exhaustion, and even PTSD if they’ve been in a violent situation, Torrisi said. “It’s a very isolating profession. There are very few people you can openly talk to about this.”<<

Women in general are more likely to experience orgasm when “sex” includes kissing, non-genital touching, receiving oral sex, genital-manual stimulation, and use of sex toys– all behaviors more engaged in by women having sex with women.
