03:22 pm - Says a lot for computer programming...
"...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."

When she could no longer afford her rent, she started to think: "What can I do that I can start doing straightaway, that doesn't require a great deal of training or investment to get started, that’s cash in hand and that leaves me spare time to do my work in?”

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)
