A New York college student is trying to get her foot in the door. Literally. The 19-yr-old NYU student is a “foot prostitute”. She got the gig after responding to an ad on Craigslist, last year. Now she offers up her toes for the promise of $500 to $800 a week. And those are only part-time hours.
Olivia (she won’t reveal her real name) sat down with the New York Post to talk about her life as a foot prostitute.
The ad, which said, “Girls With Pretty Feet Needed (age 18-30) (Lower East Side),” asked for only her name, phone number and a head shot.
“It only took them four hours to contact me back,” she tells the Post. “They told me to get a pedicure and dress like you’re going to a club.”
Her audition outfit consisted of a dressy tank top, pants and a pair of black stilettos.
On turning up to the Manhattan spa she said that more than 30 girls, who did not speak English, were waiting in the lobby wearing corsets and high heels.
“I thought they said dress like you were going to a club; apparently, I came a little overdressed,” she explained.
The man who placed the ad invited each of the girls into a room one-by-one where their feet were inspected.
Olivia, who wears size six-and-a-half shoe, said that he was looking for high arches and small feet.
Only ten of the girls made the cut, and the rest were sent off barefoot and broke.
Olivia says on a typical night at the spa turned brothel, men show up with their own liquor and pay a $100 entrance fee to a ‘foot pimp’ who pairs them up with a ‘foot prostitute’.
I would think there would be a better way to get a leg up on debt.
And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
