The police have arrested a Penacook woman who advertises herself online as an "Amazing Goddess" and charged her with prostitution. According to the police, Suzan Belanger, 38, was running a prostitution business called Amazing Alternatives from 324 Village St. in downtown Penacook.
Belanger said yesterday she intends to fight the charge. While she admits she received money after sex with clients, she said that the money was a donation and that the sex was not for physical gratification.
Belanger said she was called to sexual healing, which she said involves oral sex and intercourse, by God and fairies.
"I did this as a healer, not a prostitute," Belanger said. She hopes to take her fight beyond Concord District Court, where she is to be arraigned June 27. Belanger has a call into Oprah. "I plan to take this sky high," she said, "and show them how godly God can be."
Belanger has been a healer, she said, since January, and she initially advertised herself on the website Craigslist.com under erotic services. She opened her shop in Penacook in mid-March. She said God reassured her that her business was legal.
"He said, 'Suzan, you can be a rainbow in the dark. You can elevate this dark and dirty hole and make it sacred and healing.'"
