I'd get a job stripping. I have a friend who is a stripper & she makes a small fortune

I really don't have the body for any of that but I guess if that was MY ONLY option I would

I don't think I can never say never.
I live in Australia and have friends and family who wouldn't let me or my daughter starve or go homeless. There are charities and government benefits to help me from ever experiencing too much of a problem. I mean, it could still be really horrible, I'm not saying Australians all live under fantastic conditions... but it's a bit hard for me to give a real answer when I'll likely never face that kind of situation myself.
We all sit and say, "Wow, that's so horrible!" when we hear of what women in other countries do to make a buck, and sometimes even call them horrible people for doing it. But honestly, I've never had to sit there watching my kid starve to death, die to AIDS etc while all I could do was watch. I think if it really came down to it, I'd do a lot of things I'd rather not have to do in order to lessen my own or my family's suffering.

I'd be a hooker but not a stripper. I don't do groups, lol.
I think I'd happily be a dominatrix, I've heard it brings in the $$.

I agree with everything Sassy said. I know I'd never be in this position. But if I was them I guess I would yeah. I'd do anything so my kids had a roof over their heads and food in their tummies.

No I wouldn't strip or prostitute, Like Beebs said, I'd do something like packing shelves or cleaning or something, and i'd move into a smaller, cheaper place even if it meant we were cramped. Somewhere close to a train station/bus stop and shops/schools so I could get rid of the car. And I'd grow my own veggies. I'd also source all the assistance I could from the govt and charity organisations. I think we're pretty lucky in Australia to have these options.
I have a lot of sympathy for people that feel they have no other options. But I know some people prefer to do that as its more money for less work which makes sense with kids.

I would not be a hooker or a stripper, even if I had a body to do it.
