Something that strikes me about Alex, is her body acceptance and positivity particularly over the last year or so having undergone stoma surgery while very much being in front of an audience as an adult content creator and sex worker. In this episode, we cover all bases from discussing young diagnosis to body image, Mental health and careers.
Instead of taking a step back from sex work post surgery, Alex has done her best to embrace her stoma and encourage representation and acceptance within her industry. So, in this episode, we chat about her journey with bowel disease as well as her experiences of working in the sex industry while managing these things.
I’d just like to highlight that Alex and I are speaking from experience and as discussed in last week’s episode with Ruth, a stoma care nurse, it’s always important to discuss your own personal scenario with your healthcare team with regards to things such as intimacy post-surgery.
