I took the OP to mean if it was as a last resort. Of course if there were other options I would take ALL of them before stripping. Sheesh.

I'd consider any of the above (and have) if we where truly struggling. Unfortunately though I don't have the body for either and the hours would be hard as a single mum.

I didn't read it as, "If you lost your job, would go pimp out your vag for cash?"
But more, "If you'd tried to work at McDonalds, tried to get charity assistance, blah blah blah... and that didn't work... then would you consider working in the sex industry?"
I think MOST people would probably try all the other options first before deciding to have sex for money.

I think people who are saying they'd stock shelves or down size their house etc are being. A little presumptuous....
Not saying they shouldn't try or that the only option is protitution or stripping..
But, its not a matter of walking into Coles and demanding a night fill job to stack shelves And getting one.. Coles and majority of the other night filling places take the long way round to hire those staff and staff are in abundance.. Why hire you at $23+ an hour ( who in some cases have got no work experience in the field) when 18 year old Sally with a little bit of retail experience working at HJ's after school is $18 bucks an hour. Get me?
Also with down sizing your house you will not get a one bedroom rental if you are a family. No property manager alive ( believe me I am one) will present a family (mum,dad,kids) (mum+ kids) application to a owner of a one bedroom unit, its common sense.
(Assuming this is what people mean as I would assume if your facing prostitution/stripping you would have already exhausted your avenue of property ownership and no longer own or have the money for selling etc)
So I think those who have entered the prostitution or stripping field may need others to understand that the avenues we are so willingly stating we'd do ver and above being a prostitute are not as easy to get as you imagine.
And by no way have I been affiliated in prostitution or agree with it.. Like you a of exhaust every other avenue first before getting to that point.. I just wanted to make it a point that these avenues aren't always as easy to get as some have made out here..

I would do anything for my family. If that meant stripping, phone sex, prostitution etc, I would do it.
I also think we need to remember that not every sex worker is being demeaned, nor do I think sex work and feminism need to be separated. I have known plenty of women in the sex industry that are strong, powerful, intelligent, wealthy feminists who are fulfilling a role in society.

I'd probably be a stripppa... Until I found myself a sugar daddy who would take care of me.

I was kicked out of home just after finishing school (very bad relationship with a mentally ill mother, which thankfully has started to get a bit better)
Anyway I had no job no nothing, no where to go. My best friend was in a similar situation, her mum was a stripper so we decided to do the same thing.
It got is by and kept us off the streets. Admittedly I ended up in a bad circle of friends after being in the industry for awhile but I wad lucky enough to pull myself together and get myself out of it all before it was too late.
I am now married and pregnant with my first and a qualified swimming teacher and teachers aide.
Not ashamed of my past at all, did what I had to to survive at the time and am thankful for the life lessons it has taught me that I know I would never learn anywhere else

But I wanted to make a point that sometimes when people try to get these jobs you have listed and that others have listed it is not a matter of 'well I'd stack shelves or, I'd work at maccas' because those chains don't care about your dire needs, and they aren't In a hurry to make sure they hire mature age over the next kid who walks in the door.
I hate people assuming that these somewhat considered 'lower class jobs' are easy to get and that if push came to shove 'well I'd fix it by getting one of those'
Put it his way, I have a
Certification in retail and retail experience and I fell into my property manager roll with no experience except a little bit of reception and assisting work, a lot quicker and simpler then these maccas, night fill jobs I applied for through desperation at the time, even though I was qualified in that field and had experience.. Not one phone call.
Obviously in the end it was a good thing I never got those jobs as I earnt triple the wage as a qualified Property manager after a few months.
But the point I'm making is people are assuming these jobs are easy to get..
