“I got into escorting because I realized how much money I could make and how easy I could make it,” says the 21-year-old who claims she can make up to $1,000 a day and $7,000 during a good week. “I place ads on the internet, and we’ll get together, and we’ll just chitchat for a little while, just hang out. The people that I meet, they’re regular people, just like me.”

The young woman is also mom to a 4-year-old boy whom her mom, Faith, is currently taking care of. “He means everything to me,” Ivey says.
