Under the alias Samantha X, the 40-year-old who started working as a sex worker two-and-a-half years ago has written a tell-all book about her experience.
After working in British tabloids including The Mirror and Sunday People, Ms Goff came to Australia and worked as the health and beauty editor for Prevention Magazine and at New Idea.
"When I look back on how I juggled the two lives, I am astounded," she says in the exclusive interview.
She also reveals the remarkable support she has received, particularly from her female friends, who know of her alter-ego.
"I volunteer at the school tuck-shop and most parents know what I do."
"Do you think your profession defines you as a parent? I don’t. I don’t think that because you’re a neurosurgeon you’re necessarily a good parent. I don’t think that if you are a criminal you’re a bad parent."
After working in one of Sydney’s most exclusive bordello’s for 18 months, Samantha X started out on her own and now charges $800 an hour or $5000 a night.
"You'd think for 12 hours we'd be having sex all night but that is so far from the truth."
Now she believes she can help save marriages because of her experiences with the married men who pay more than three times the average weekly wage for a night of her company.
"I hear a lot about marriage from the man's point of view. They say they are not listened to, they aren’t heard."
"I give them intimacy, it's not necessarily about sex."
