Having a positive body image has been shown to be linked to higher sexual satisfaction in women. Many women would like to be more confident in the bedroom and trying something new may help to overcome some sexual fears or anxieties.

As extreme as it may sound, entering into the sex industry is becoming a common way in which women are feeling more empowered over their bodies and their sexuality. In what ways will this boost your self-confidence?

Building your confidence at work

There are more than 25 different types of sex work identified, and these can involve direct or indirect contact. Working in the sex industry is more complex than many people imagine and there are various reasons why women enter into this line of work. Some women may choose to lap dance, pole dance or go into burlesque dancing to keep fitter and increase their self-confidence.

Others may choose to go to online or social media platforms to provide live or recorded services from their own home for convenience. By accentuating parts of your body that you feel are attractive and introducing them into your work, the compliments you receive may help to encourage you to be more comfortable in your own skin.

Sex work as a business

Remember that you are the one in control of what you do in the industry; you are the boss of your own freelance business. Any business owner would not enter into a contract if they have doubts about the details or what they may have to compromise to meet the terms.

Using regulated websites can be helpful for monitoring and reporting any untoward and risky behavior from viewers or customers. Many escorts and cam girls use these sites to offer their services but be sure to factor in any joining or monthly fees into your outgoings.

Sites like OnlyFans for example, will take 20% of earnings but you keep 80% and are in control of what you create for the site.

Increasing your income as a confidence boost

Although many women may feel that the work itself is empowers them to have a more positive body image, some women may find that the increase in income and ability to take more control over their finances increases their overall confidence.

Some webcam models earn upwards of $1000 dollars a day making it an extremely lucrative business. Many women choose this kind of work to help them feel more sexually confident and to earn a side income which can help with regular expenses.

However, if you are able to spend time marketing yourself and increasing engagement, you may be able to make this your only source of income increasing independence.

Ensuring that you are in control of what you choose to do in the sex industry can be extremely empowering. Provided you do what you are comfortable with, it can be a fantastic way to improve your own body image and increase the control you have over your own finances.
