Former plus sized dominatrix explains why she kicked punters out mid-session

A former plus-sized dominatrix who sold sex in London has revealed the secrets of her trade – including why she kicked out punters and the long hours of admin.

Miranda Kane, 40, who was a sex worker from the ages of 22 to 32, once stopped a session halfway through after a client called her a "w***e".

"I am not there to be called those names, there’s nothing on my website about doing that," she told MyLondon.

"For some sex workers, that’s their brand or their kink and that’s great. But they just assumed they could do that with me."

Miranda, who is now a comedian, writer and podcaster, also explained how a whopping 80% of her job was paperwork.

She said: "If you’re an independent sex worker like I was, you've got to make sure you have a decent website.

"I learned so much about marketing from being a sex worker; I know all about metatags and search engine optimisation and analytics, it was all part of my day."

She went on: "I had to know: what keywords are people finding me under? If I google 'plus-size London escort', am I on the first page of Google? If not why not?"

Throughout her time as a sex worker, Miranda saw the industry change dramatically, with recessions, austerity and soaring tuition fees driving people to the job.

"When I started there were about 12 plus size sex workers in London and we were all friends; we had the market sewn up, and we even agreed to charge about the same.

"But now when you google 'BBW [big beautiful woman] London escort', you see something like 33,000."

Although people often assume punters disrespect the women they’re paying for, Miranda insists it isn’t always the case.

She argues that in her personal experience paying a lot of money for an hour of her time shows they actually "quite like women".

Before the meet-up, Miranda would have a phone call with her client for a bit of small talk and to discuss details.

"They’d always say, 'Just…like… the usual' – and they never wanted the usual, whatever that is," she said.

"I'd say, 'So something like the girlfriend experience?' – which is sex – and they’d say 'Er no, not really… I want to try, like, foot stuff?' That’s not the usual then is it?!"

Now, Miranda has released an autobiographical podcast about a sex worker living and working in London, called Slaving Away.
