Plus-size ex-dominatrix reveals she was paid to sit on men while eating pizza

Would you ever consider giving up your current job in favour of working in the sex industry? Most people would probably answer "no" - without even thinking about the question. But as it turns out, being a professional dominatrix isn't that bad a life; at least, according to former dom and escort Miranda Kane, who became a curvy pin-up for paying men who wanted to explore their kinky fantasies, and who at one point was being paid to sit on dudes and eat pizza. What a life! Now Miranda has opened up about her career in a candid interview, and what's she's revealed has been pretty intriguing.

Miranda, who hails from Finchley in London, worked as a big beautiful woman (BBW) escort for seven years while going by the name Melody. She charged around £2,000 for a night in a rented flat where she promised to explore the bizarre and obscure erotic fantasies of men; some of which included being spanked with wooden spoons, or popping balloons with body parts.

Miranda had always been overlooked by men because of her weight; but after leaving a depressing job in telesales and working part-time in an underwear and sex toy shop, she suddenly gained a newfound confidence, and started going on dates with men she met through dating sites. All of this led to her eventually becoming a fully-fledged escort.

Miranda stated:

"I was the biggest girl in my village, and people always said I had a nice face or lovely personality. But suddenly there were guys who liked me because of my body ... I started off escorting and I didn’t know much about dominating. But lots of guys would tell me they wanted to be dominated and they didn’t know how, so it was a natural progression. One man’s pain is definitely another man’s pleasure. They’re probably getting sex and the girlfriend experience at home, so are coming to me for something more kinky."

"Before I wasn’t comfortable with the way I looked and I had lost confidence in myself. Sex work gave me confidence in what I looked like and gave me something to say ... Sex workers are always shown as people addicted to drugs, people who are being trafficked or as being like Billie Piper’s part in the TV show adaptation of Belle Du Jour. She never had any friends, was chasing after one guy and lived in a mansion block on the South Bank. There was no scene of her getting drunk with her friends at a Wetherspoon’s on a Friday night – which is what my life was like."

However, since London experienced an influx of other sex workers, and competition became fierce, Miranda has since stopped being a sex worker and turned to comedy instead, and now recounts her escapades in the form of stand-up shows to captive audiences. Her show The Coin Operated Girl, has toured the Edinburgh Fringe comedy festival four times. It's good to see that she's just as successful at making people laugh as she is at turning them on.
