She tells her daughter that “mommy dances, talks to people and tells jokes for money.”

 

Working the sex industry is usually frowned upon by society. But for one Portland, Oregon mom, who works as a stripper, erotica writer and sometimes a cam girl, the job actually makes her a better parent.

Elle Stanger is a 31-year-old mom to her only five-year-old daughter. She believes the “greater sense of empathy” she developed from working in the sex industry helps her become a better parent.

Elle Stanger takes pride in being a sex worker.

She also sells her own porn and recently, she and her partner made one, which she described to be “fun.”

“I feel like being a sex worker makes me a better mom because I’ve developed a greater sense of empathy. It means that I’m responsible to make a human being that is better for the world.”

You may wonder what effect this has on her child, especially if she’s in school. Stanger has already prepared for that and told her daughter what she would answer if anyone asks about her mother’s job.

‘I’ve been telling my daughter since she was three that mommy dances, talks to people and tells jokes for money.”

Stanger acknowledges the fact that people think negatively of her, especially since she is a mom.

‘I think people don’t trust that I could raise a child in a nurturing, safe, structured environment because they’re projecting their own fears on me.”

Although she is proud to be a sex worker, Stanger made it clear that she doesn’t want her daughter to see her work.

For Stanger, her work and being a parent are two different things that shouldn’t be mixed together.

“I am not working in full view of her because I am an adult, I don’t want to see my parents do that. When I’m a mum, I’m a mum, when I’m in the adult world working, I’m doing my adult work – those two things do not overlap.”

Stanger is not only open about the nature of her job, but she takes pride in it because she feels like she’s helping people.

For her, stripping is like providing therapy to her clients.

Stanger says that stripping is a form of therapy or healing for her clients. She also came to realize that the job made her understand more about people.

“There are a lot of reasons people go into adult establishments – it’s not just because they want some kind of arousal, but because they want to be heard, they want to be acknowledged, they wanna be seen.”

Stanger has always wanted to become a police officer…

Which is why she received a degree in criminology.

Stanger’s plans of becoming a police officer ended when she “stopped believing in the criminal justice system when she learned more about the world.” She chose to become a sex worker instead because “it was more of a compassionate method of interacting with the world around her.”

The stripper mom’s job may not be acceptable for some people but being in the industry doesn’t make her less of a parent. She knows she’s raised a good, smart and happy kid.

“I see myself as a healer and a giver of touch and a motherly figure and not just motherly to my kids, but motherly to my clients because I want to care for them, I want them to feel happy and safe and they will treat me better when they are happier.”
