Ex-prostitute who became ‘addicted to money’ and was taking more clients than her ‘body could handle’ reveals she’s retraining as a psychotherapist to warn other young women off entering the sex industry

  • Maeve Moon, who lives in Manchester, became an escort when she was student 
  • Revealed became ‘addicted to money’ despite the impact it had on her health
  • Is now training to become psychotherapist and warns of dangers of sex industry

An ex-prostitute who became ‘addicted to money’ and was taking more clients than her ‘body could handle’ has revealed the dangers of sex work in a bid to warn others off working in brothels.  

Manchester-based Maeve Moon, who lived in Lancashire while growing up before moving to Surrey while she studied for a degree, initially started out as a sugar baby.

She travelled to America with her Sugar Daddy where she began her two year journey as a full-time escort – and continued to do so despite the impact it was having on her health.

Now, Maeuve, who is on her way to becoming a qualified psychotherapist and offers online classes to women on her site Profit From Trauma, has spoken out to help other young women who may be lured into the sex work industry by the idea of quick cash.   

Speaking in her YouTube channel Profit From Trauma, as reported by Daily Star, she said: ‘Initially I charged £150 an hour and I remember him (the client) handing me this £150 and I remember just walking into my housemates’ room – I was doing this in my student accommodation – and I was just slapping this money against my hand.

‘£150 is absolutely nothing, absolutely nothing. But when you are used to working for peanuts, £150, you are ballin’.’

However, it wasn’t long before the initial thrill faded away and the physical demand of the industry began to impact Maeve’s day-to-day happiness. 

‘I got thinner and thinner and I allowed my self-respect to continue to go down, I allowed people to do worse and worse things to me,’ she continued.

Maeve, who now warns other against the dangers of using their body as a ‘purchasable and useable commodity,’ went on to explain how she would let clients become violent towards her – but added she would justify it by telling herself that ‘at least they weren’t doing it to other women’. 

‘I was getting this addiction to money and it was just getting worse and worse and worse; I’d maybe take more clients than my body could handle within the day and then do that six or seven days of the week,’ she told the publication. ‘And I couldn’t handle it, so I’d always be on and off.’ 

On her website, Maeve noted: ‘Towards the latter end of 2019, I found myself with pelvic inflammatory disease, copper poisoning, a weed addiction, a central London apartment to pay for and a life I hated beyond measure.’

She went on to say how she headed off on a spiritual retreat before moving out of London – and vowed never to escort again.

Since then, she has launched her Instagram page @profit_from_trauma, along with Youtube, TikTok and Spotify, and says she believes that trauma can be profited from in many ways – including emotionally, spiritually, and financially. 

Maeve told Daily Star: ‘The most important thing a young person tempted by sex work should know is this; if money was no object, is this really what you would like to be doing with your life?’

‘I know this logic applies to most jobs, but most jobs are not as physically and intimately intrusive, and both psychologically and potentially physically damaging in the long-term as sex work. Whether it’s online or in person, it’s an intimate energy exchange that usually is one-sided (sex worker > client)….’ 

She went on to explain that for in person clients, she believes you share souls when you have sex – so you take a piece of their soul and they take a piece of yours.  

‘A prostitute, sugar baby or escort may have sex 7+ times a day, that’s 7 random energies going into their bodies, and 7 souls they will then carry,’ she added.

Speaking to Femail, Maeve went on to discuss the long-term effects of online and in person sex work and asked young girls to strongly consider the damage it can cause before jumping in head first.

‘The long term effects of potential dissociation, disengagement, PTSD, CPTSD, during intimacy and physical touch or intimate conversations with regular partners in the present and future may be impacted,’ she explained. ‘And certainly your relationship with your own body will be a risk factor as soon as you turn your genitals, and your sacred intimate regions into a purchasable and usable commodity.’

She added: ‘The body is invaluable, and is the most loyal friend you will ever have. Consider this, would you sell your best friend to a dirty punter for £10 a month or £150 for an hour where he can say and do as he pleases to her for his own sexual gratification? Most likely not, because the money isn’t worth it.’
