***TRIGGER WARNING – Mention of sexual assault, substance abuse, physical abuse, pimps.***
Huge episode this week. It’s been a while since we’ve had a long-form episode on the podcast, eh? Well, this week is certainly deserving of the length as it is a fascinating and heartbreaking episode that I have had the pleasure to share. I speak with fellow full service sex worker, Cougar Nikki, this week on the podcast to tell us her story on how she was pimped as a young teenager and then trafficked across Canada by her pimps.
She tells us of her backstory, how she ended up on the “tracks” of Winnipeg, Canada, the emotional and physical abuse she’s had to endure, the manipulation tactics of her pimps, the power of control, and how she was able to finally get out. Nikki’s story, which occurred in her teenage years during the 90s, is a riveting one, eye-opening, and a different landscape compared to how it is now. It’s a longer episode but well-worth the listen!
Please note that a number of names and affiliations were censored in this episode due to protection and to ensure anonymity as Nikki’s former pimps are still around, to her knowledge. Please excuse the number of censored beeps in this episode.
