On this episode of More Than Therapy, Felipe Blue, LCAS, CSI has a discussion with Hannah Spanke. 

Hannah Spanke, the host of F**k Yourself Happy, is introducing a special edition of the show that will focus on her personal experience in the sex industry. She has been a sex worker of many different types for nearly a decade, and she wants to provide an honest and complete tell-all about her journey in the industry. She starts off with a fair trigger warning for those who might find the subject matter uncomfortable and then dives into a recap of her journey, starting from the beginning and continuing until now. Sex work is one of the oldest industries in the world and yet it is often assumed that it is something one would only do out of desperation. This assumption is pervasive, and yet, people are fascinated by it. There is a dichotomy between how people view sex work and how they actually consume it. People have a natural understanding that it is not something someone would choose for themselves, but it is something people are drawn to and engage with in some capacity. It is both intriguing and taboo.  This conversation is about the idea that people are quick to be interested when it comes to somebody else's story, but they rarely consider it when it comes to themselves. The speaker then goes on to briefly explain their childhood, which included a mother who struggled with drug addiction and a father who was a single dad from the time the speaker was five years old. The speaker then emphasizes how their father was their main influence and how they now understand that everyone is doing the best that they can with what they have.  The speaker reflects on their experience growing up with an emotionally unavailable father and how this affected their development. They recall a particular experience when they were nine years old and had a sit-down conversation with their father. This conversation had a lasting impact on their understanding of the world and their identity. They recognize that the stoic and toxic masculine model their father presented was not the ideal role model for them and that it led to trauma and dysfunction. They emphasize the importance of having a positive role model in order to foster healthy development and understanding.
