Should prostitution be made legal? Is Ashley a prostitute or a woman involved in polyandry? You decide. My name is Ashly Lorenzana. I'm a twenty-three year old Portland, OR native who has worked as a female escort for the past five years. I started out advertising on the now-extinct Craig's List "erotic services" section, after finding out that my mother was working as an escort also. Recently, I have self-published a personal memoir titled "Sex, Drugs & Being an Escort." It started out as a periodic journal and is formatted as such. See press release. It can be found at: "Former Female Escort Tells All in Recently Self-Published Memoir" With all the recent controversy and news coverage regarding the serial killers who met their victims on Craig's List ("Erotic Services" among the targeted sections), I believe that I can offer some insights into the life of an escort. Many people have limited knowledge of such alternative lifestyles and my experiences may capture their interest.  She was only 17 when she tacked her first ad to the "Erotic Services" board on Craigslist. Steve Duin states - Ashly Lorenzana posted a picture and wrote something "short and sweet: 'If you want to hang out ...' I didn't know if you were supposed to get creative with it." She only got creative with her age, claiming she was 18, or barely legal. Within two hours, she had almost 100 bidders for her services. "I'm sure the 18 thing attracted most people," Lorenzana says six years later. "In my experience, it does." She returned the call of a guy with a nice voice, and asked her mother's boyfriend to give her a ride to the client's house. He was in his mid-30s. She didn't know what to charge, Lorenzana says. "So, I just copied my mom. I asked for $100 for an hour." Because her mother was 14 when she was born, Ashly Lorenzana was raised by her grandparents on the Oregon coast, only coming to live in Portland whenever Cynthia Steinhauer was between relapses in her drug dependency.
