the body of the word

“I am Elena Eva Reynaga. I’m not a bitch, I’m not a prostitute, I’ m not a hooker nor a whore.  I am a working woman, a sex worker woman. ”

I am an activist since 1994 and headed AMMAR for three years without knowing how to read or write. I studied my primary school at a neighborhood association at forty-seven years old. Now I have sixty-two and I’m in love with my activism, because I know that from my place I can change the reality of many sexual workers.

With my work I could make my children to study and my granddaughter already started university. Everything I got through what I found more dignifying. I explained to my children that they would never need to ask on the street…

My daughter is today also a militant in the field of human rights, and my granddaughter is at university . Both come with me to the marches.…….- and YES ! It is not a myth !!: sexual workers do not kiss in the mouth to our customers. When real feeling start, it always begins with a kiss, then, you preserve it aside for the personal feelings, for when you fall in love.

“  I feel lucky because I kissed . ”
