She may have quit the business a few months ago but that hasn’t stopped former high-class escort Samantha X from speaking her mind about the sex industry.

The 43-year-old divorced mum-of-two has taken to her Twitter account to defend mums who make a living as sex workers.

Samantha, whose real name is actually Amanda Goff, claimed that working in the business “doesn’t make you a bad mum”.

Samantha, who has just released her second book, Back on Top: Confessions of a High-Class Escort, posted a link to a story about a woman accussed of beating her five-year-old daughter to death, saying that’s what bad parenting really looks like.

“To any woman out there who thinks their job as a stripper/sex worker/dancer/porn Star makes you a “bad mother” NO,” she wrote.

“Abusing and killing your kids makes you a bad mother. Not providing for them.”

Samantha, who used to charge $1-100 per-hour for her services, went on to say that that she’s “sick” of women saying they’re afraid their ex-husband will take their kids away from the because they work in the sex industry.

“No. You can’t take kids away from their mother because of misguided moral judgement,” she said.

“Escorting doesn’t make u a bad mum.

“Abusing and killing your kids makes you a bad mum. Working and providing for them doesn’t make you a bad mum.”

The former escort, who gained notoriety after releasing her first book, Hooked: Secrets of a High Class Escort, said her parents had “normal jobs” and weren’t from the sex industry.

“I came from a middle/upper class family,” she wrote.

“If you love your child unconditionally, shower them with love & self- esteem, confidence and love - no matter your profession, u r a good parent.”

Her Tweets come just months after she went public with her new love - newsreader Ryan Phelan.

42-year-old Ryan revealed the pair met during her promotional campaign for her book Back On Top.

“We have pretty much spent every day together since,” he told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“I fell in love with Amanda, no one else, and that is who she is to me, Amanda, an outstanding mother and woman.”

Samantha then told the Daily Mail that her relationship with Ryan was a massive factor in hanging up her escort heels.

“The love we have deserved Amanda not Samantha, and I was ready to close on the chapter on Samantha,” she said.
