Additional crowds: Katherine Sears, a 30-year criminal lawyer from Des Moines, Iowa, has revealed that she works as a part-time prostitute
& # 39; I think the more we talk about it, the better our chances are of getting the decriminalization we are aiming for, & # 39; she said. & # 39; We will not change the legislation if we are passive about it. & # 39;
Katherine doesn't know exactly how much money she has earned from prostitution over the years, but she made it clear that her part-time job is pretty lucrative.
All smiles: Katherine & # 39; s husband John Sears said he doesn't care if his wife is a prostitute
& # 39; I should pay my taxes and look at it, & # 39; she said, adding: & # 39; The best thing I did, I earned $ 55,000 in three weeks. & # 39;
The lawyer was already working as a prostitute when she met her husband John at Drake Law School a few years ago, and he has no problem with her moonlight as a sex worker.
& # 39; I don't care so much, & # 39; John told KCCI of his wife, who defends criminal law with him when she is not working as a prostitute.
Katherine usually alternates between three weeks in Nevada, followed by a week at home in Iowa.
While she works in the brothel, she starts every morning with three hours of priming and pampering, including showering, exfoliating and drying her hair.
On a busy day, she will see 10 to 15 customers, but she insists that she never worried about getting sexually transmitted diseases.

Pause: after welcoming her first child four months ago, she took time off from prostitution to focus on her baby boy and her new law practice
& # 39; You are really less likely to get an STD from a prostitute than from the general public, & # 39; she said.
Katherine, who regularly undergoes health checks, emphasized that & # 39; prostitution is consensual sex & # 39; and she has the right to refuse customers whenever they want.
After welcoming her first child four months ago, she has taken time off from prostitution to focus on her baby boy and her new law practice.
However, she remains committed to putting an end to the & # 39; judgmental stigma & # 39; that is connected to sex work.
Candid: The criminal lawyer hopes to decriminalize sex work by sharing her story, and she is even willing to take prostitution cases on a pro bono
& # 39; Prostitutes are people. Prostitutes I know are some of the best people I know, & she said.
& # 39; I think many people are upset about prostitution without understanding what they are upset about. & # 39;
Katherine insists that she is terribly shy, but she finds sex work empowering.
& # 39; We are degrading women who are open about sexuality & she said. & # 39; You should be this way and if you are not, you are bad. So I think it's a lot of indoctrination. & # 39;
Not only has she shared her story publicly to help others on the taboo subject, but she is also willing to put prostitution cases on pro bono while continuing to fight for decriminalization.
& # 39; Their bodies are theirs and we have absolutely no reason to tell them that you cannot condition your permission in this way, & # 39; she said.
