A teenager who started selling sex at the age of 17 has insisted that her line of work is nothing to be ashamed of, and said she’s no different to people her age who have sex for free.
Chloe, 19, is featured in tonight’s Sex Business: Teens Selling Sex on Channel 5, and claims she can make up to £2,000 a night, which she needs to fund her extensive beauty treatments.
Although it’s illegal to pay someone under 18 for sex in the UK, Chloe started working at 17 by advertising her services on a website where there was no check on her age.
Two years on, she says she’s proud of her job and tells everyone about it.
Chloe, 19, from Nottingham, started escorting when she was just 17. She says she’s proud of selling sex
‘All my friends know what I do and I’ll tell everyone cause I’m not ashamed,’ she says.
Chloe insists that charging for sex doesn’t make her any different from other women who do it for free.
‘I prefer to go about my business and charge people and get good money for what I do,’ she says.
‘I’m still the same average girl as every else, sex is not different, everybody has sex, just because ‘m charging for it, it’s no different.
Chloe says she can earn £2,000 a night with her escorting services and that a normal wage wouldn’t support her lifestyle
‘I’m still going out on the weekends, going clubbing, enjoying my life, going out with my friends.
‘I see myself doing it for a few more years. I don’t know when I’m gonna say I’m gonna stop, because I’m so good.’
Now that she’s of legal age, Chloe says her sex-business has been much easier.
When she started at 17, she used website that didn’t check people’s ages in order to offer her services.
She used to earn £200 to £300 a night, compared to the £2,000 she commands these days.
Chloe charges extra for requests she doesn’t like, such as £50 extra for kissing and ‘bareback’ sex without a condom.
She charges £20 extra for filming, which is increasingly more popular.
‘Guys want to see me and film at same time so they can watch it back. Loads of guys want to film nowadays so I just charge extra for it,’ she says.
She also boasts about being skilled at oral sex, saying: ‘That’s why they come to me for and definitely come back to me for that, they’re all happy, never disappointed,’ she says.
The escort says her family knows about her situation and that she’s not ashamed of her job. She gives them her location in case something goes wrong
Chloe has lip fillers every months, her nails done every two weeks and her hair done every two to three weeks, and believes she couldn’t afford all this with a different career.
‘With a normal job you get paid monthly, and I just don’t think that would suit my lifestyle,’ she explains.
‘The job I’m in is definitely better for me, because I literally spend so much, my lips, my hair, my nails, my tattoos. I literally have to keep up with the amount I spend, so I have to earn it back to next day.
‘I’ve always stood out, not just because I want to look like this for this job.
‘I could do any other job but I like this job, and I like the money at the end of it. The money that you get from it is a lot more than the average job.’

During the documentary, Chloe stays in London for two days in order to score some high-paying clients and ends up seeing six people in 48 hours.
As she readies for her first session, she discusses how she keeps herself safe by taking the pill every day, and sharing her location with family members in case things turn sour.
‘My mum, my sister, my friends, someone at all times they know which hotel I’m at, my door number, which room, which apartment I’m at, so that if I didn’t show the next day, they’d know where to find me if something might have gone wrong,’ she explains.
And in her line of work, danger is never too far away. Chloe reveals she’s had to kick one of her client out of the room the day before filming.
‘This one guy who came, he had such attitude. He booked in with me for ten minutes and tried to take half an hour. I said “I’m not a fool, I’m not a d*******, you can get the f*** out”.
‘I thought he was gonna come back, though, at the end of the day because some of them are like that, aren’t they.’
The Sex Business: Teens selling sex airs tonight at 10pm on Channel 5.
