"...I couldn't find a professional job in my chosen field because I didn't have my Ph.D. yet. I didn't have a lot of spare time on my hands because I was still making corrections and preparing for the viva; and I got through my savings a lot faster than I thought I would."

She found an escort agency and started her secret life. "I did have another job at one point, as a computer programmer, but I kept up with my other work because it was so much more enjoyable."
The Times quoting Dr Brooke Magnanti, on the 14 months she spent working as a prostitute (emphasis added)
