The money is sexy
Prostitution: definitely one of the higher-paying part-time jobs out there. On her best day at a brothel, Rossi made 700 euros (about $780) doing what’s considered legal work in Germany.
“It’s quick money," she said, "especially if all you’ve been doing are small, crappy jobs and every day you’re waiting to see if they’ve sent you the money -- and they never do. With this, you have cash in hand at the end of the day.”
But there’s a German saying that goes, “money earned quick gets spent quick.” And for Rossi, that was definitely true.
“I was young and when I earned that much, I learned to spend it fast,” she said. “Parties, purses and shoes.”
Sometimes it’s just a normal job
In some ways, Rossi says hooking is just like any job: you have good and bad customers, you get to know your co-workers... and in her case, there were even a few others enrolled in school.
“There were other girls who were studying, doing internships, and there were different reasons why we all landed there,” she said. “It’s important to realize that not all prostitutes are victims, and not all stupid.”
