You’ve heard of the Oracle of Delphi?  Well Rebecca Mott is the Oracle of Prostituted Women.  Her diamond-clear, diamond-sharp voice inspires survivors everywhere.  Here’s an excerpt from the latest post up at her blog:

I spend a lot of energy trying to express what it was to be inside indoors prostitution.

I write in many ways, I speak out for many audiences – but always it can feel to me that I skimming the surface – always keeping the listener and/or reader inside their comfort zone.

Doing that, I find the screaming of my truths get little release. It is crafted into a language that fits pre-conceived views of what it is to be prostituted.

I want to burst out – but I have no road map. All I have is a small window to view who I was – and more important what prostitution made me into.

I want to write without protecting myself from the ugliness of that time.

For through that shit I grow a diamond that made a memory and record of that time – it made able to write beyond fear, write into and through the confusion.

And most of all, I have the power to write with the cold eye that shows as much as I can take – leaving room for real life in my present.

Yes, writing to the truth does make me sick, and on occasions so scared that I remembered why I fall in love with death – but to censor or close out those truths, will slowly destroys everything that makes me a full human.

This blog is now my mission – it not a choice any more, it a part of the drive to true freedom for all prostituted women and girls everywhere.

This blog is beyond being my personal history – for each part of that time, however fragmented, fuels every word of this blog.
