In The Secret Sex Lives of Australian Men Paul, 26, is married to Melanie, 28, who is a sex worker and he says her profession doesn't bother him.
Paul met Melanie through an online forum. They had a really great connection straight away, and quickly decided to have a relationship, even though Paul knew Melanie was a sex worker. They sometimes have clients at their house which means that Paul has to stay in the lounge room and play on the computer, or go out.
Paul finds that it doesn’t infringe on their love life when Melanie has sex with someone else. She’ll still have sex with him, and the sex Paul and Melanie have is out of love. Unlike the sex she has with clients.
Statistic: 50% of sex workers are married or in a de facto relationship.
