When she was working as a prostitute, Lisa says she would routinely see anywhere from three to eight men "on a good day." One of the first things Lisa says she learned was to be emotionally separated from what she was doing. Her emphasis instead was always on getting drugs.
"For the addict, it's surviving," she says. "I didn't do it because I enjoy sex. I didn't do it because I like men or anything like that. It was completely to feed my addiction ... I remember the first time with a dealer that I exchanged sexual favors for drugs."
Lisa says her clientele included business executives, athletes and many married men. "It's not the guy with the trench coat flashing people on the street," she says.
