I don't see the link - I've been a sex worker for a fairly long time and I don't take drugs or drink alcohol, nor am I exposed to either while I'm working (or at least only very rarely)? I suspect it's more to do with the company you keep.


I won't deny anyone else's experience and neither should mine.
if you come here because your liberation is bound up with mine, let's work together.

I think it's important to make informed decisions. With these we can navigate our lives better and make choices that will benefit us whether we choose to do this work or not.

According to this information source that I've only discovered recently, that comes from a reliable trusty source, Global Network of Sex Work projects on the topic of sex workers and travel restrictions. The pdf doesn't translate to a link that I can send, but you can find their info here https://www.nswp.org/ and you might be able to find the article if you search Sex Workers and Travel Restrictions.

There is a paragraph describing an experience from a Canadian who had crossed the U.S border many times, on one occasion when she was with friends driving to a baby shower, says that as soon as she got to the border, the guard asked for the phone and the others she was with  .. she was sent to a second inspection, the guard kept asking her about her straight job, and other sources of income, then took her to another room and asked her about her sex work website, she isn't even sure how they found out about her work identity she got flagged before she got to the border and was interviewed for 4 hours! She signed a transcript of the interview and was banned from the USA for 5 years and and got escorted back to Canada .... :-X

And there are more reasons to put anyone off. If anyone says this is an easy job .... think again .. you need to be mega informed and smart in your decision making ! All that agro ....

Er, did you mean to quote my post? Your reply doesn't make sense and has nothing to do with what I said.

That's the standard punishment for living/working illegally in the US.  She probably crossed the border for work reasons and it is quite possible someone named her, they wouldn't ban her just for having done illegal activities in the past.  I have entered the States with someone who has a criminal past and was interviewed at the border but was still let in.
