The Drs TV: Woman Swallows Diamond Ring
The Doctors started the show by talking about how many women dream of receiving a beautiful diamond engagement ring, but not many women could imagine swallowing it. They shared a news story of a woman who stole a diamond ring and then swallowed it. The woman’s partner in crime stole the ring and then the two drove off, before police caught up with them thirty minutes later. The police officers couldn’t find the ring however, because the woman had swallowed it. Police had to wait until they retrieve the diamond.
The Doctors: Retrieving Swallowed Items
Dr. Rachael Ross explained that she was a medical director at a prison for a period of time and what they do in these situations is give the person a dry toilet, which means when they poop, they can’t flush the toilet. Then, the correctional officers and the medical staff will sift through the stool until they find what they’re looking for. The Doctors argued that the woman should have to sift through her own stool until she returns the ring.
Dr. Travis Stork explained that it could take two days or even longer for something to pass through your GI tract. Dr. Jim Sears said they’ll tell the parents of kids who swallow stuff that it could even be up to a week until they pass it. The Doctors reached out to Zales, the jeweler, but they didn’t return any of their calls.
The Drs TV: High Class Escort Mom
The Doctors then moved on to talk about a mom who is a high-class escort. Her name is Amanda, and she’s a journalist, author, mom, and also an escort. Amanda said a career in journalism took too much time away from her children, so she made a career change. Amanda said she knew escorting was right for her because she’s always loved men and always loved intimacy, so thought she should combine the two and get paid to do something she was doing for free anyway.
She claimed that her profession doesn’t determine what kind of parent she is. She wants to empower her kids, and wants them to be honest and non-judgmental adults. She described what she was doing as “naked therapy” and wrote a book called Hooked: The Secrets of a High-Class Call Girl. She said that she realized the industry isn’t about the physical, because the men she works with are really looking someone to share their darkest secrets with.
The Doctors: High-Class Call Girl & Mom
The Doctors welcomed Amanda, a.k.a. Samantha X to the show, and Dr. Travis Stork shared that Amanda is getting up to $5,000 a night to be an escort, which is clearly a lot of money. Amanda explained that her kids don’t really know what she does, because they’re very little. She said they know she’s a writer, and said she is first and foremost a journalist and has been one for 20 years. She said she’s only been an escort for two years, explaining that she decided to investigate it as a journalist and it was surprising to her that the job isn’t about physical intimacy.
She claimed if her job was only about that, she would have five-minute appointments. She said it’s about so much more than that. Dr. Rachael Ross pointed out that Amanda started her career as an escort at age 38, whereas most women start to calm down a bit in their romantic lives around that age. Amanda said she thought that the things she heard from men have shown that the issues are more about intimacy and wanting to share their secrets.
The Drs TV: Mom Is An Escort
She said she learned that oftentimes men feel as if they’re not listened to or heard in relationships. Dr. Stork asked Amanda if she felt guilt about sleeping with a married man and she said that’s not for her to judge, but said that a few times men have come to her with advice, and then come back to her a little while later thanking her, saying they’re working things out with their wives, or that their marriage is now over. She said only a small percentage of “her men” were married, and she works with men who are disabled, lonely, or single.
One of The Doctors viewers on Twitter asked if Amanda is setting an example for the kind of life she wants for her daughter. Amanda said her daughter is 5 years old and she wouldn’t be okay if she followed her profession, but said she wants her to be empowered. Amanda said she’s not ashamed of who she is and doesn’t expect her children to be ashamed of who she is. She said her daughter has a childhood that is much different than what Amanda had, and she just wants her daughter to be happy.
