Rose began her career in the sex industry at the age of 17 where she took part in a dominatrix-themed photoshoot. Rose married and became the mother of two children, one elder son and one younger daughter. She became a teacher, but after separating from her husband she moved to Exeter, Devon in 2003 and decided to become an escort. She became a vocal supporter of the sex industry and claimed to be the most expensive escort in South West England, charging £200 an hour. Rose also said that she wants to become Britain's number one sex guru.
In 2013 she won the "British Erotic Award for Sex Worker of the Year". In 2014 she appeared in the Channel 4 documentary Love for Sale. Following this appearance Rose claimed she was the victim of a hate campaign, which resulted in her landlord evicting her and having to move to London. Rose claimed: "What other reason would it be apart from my profession? I don't do any harm, I don't make noise and I am just normal."
In 2014 Rose began to stand in political elections, campaigning for sexual freedom. She has stood as an independent candidate, but the Sexual Freedom Coalition lists her as standing for the "Sexual Freedom Party".
Rose first stood in the Clacton by-election om 9 October 2014. Out of eight candidates she finished last, taking 56 votes (0.16% of the vote). Rose then stood in the Rochester and Strood by-election. Out of thirteen candidates Rose finished eleventh, taking 43 votes (0.11%).
On 12 December 2014, Rose organised a protest against the Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2014 amendment to the Communications Act 2003. One of the practices banned was facesitting, so part of the protest was a mass facesitting with people singing "Sit on My Face" by Monty Python. In an interview with the BBC Rose stated she planned to stand in the 2015 general election in Brighton, later announcing via Twitter she was going to stand in the seat of Brighton Kemptown as an independent.
