Vanessa is a very successful escort in Las Vegas, one of the best in the business, according to reviews posted about her and her services on websites devoted to appraising and evaluating women in the profession. This interview was supposed to be part of my general research into prostitution. However, during the course of meeting with twenty escorts, I found her story to be the most enthralling and compelling. I am publishing it separately here, in its entirety, based on an agreement with her that I would if I learned during the interview that her story was the most interesting of all. And it was, by far. Thus here it is. Thank you, Vanessa, for giving me this interview. And readers, I hope you also thank me for what you are about to read.
