We’re all humans, we all appreciate a little R&R in our lives, so wouldn’t it be nice if we could just get our rocks off without having to deal with the various lowlifes of the world?

Unfortunately, because of the nature of the escort, companion, and adult service provider business, scammers and bad citizens are attracted to it. Here at Skipthegames we’ve seen three main types of problems that people have to deal with: Continue reading →
There are plenty of escorts out there who promise to pamper, to be luxurious, to spoil their clients. After all, booking an escort is a luxury purchase and in a competitive market some escorts will try to cater to that end of the market.
At the same time we were amazed to see an escort ad which really sounded more like an ad for a high end spa than a roll in designer sheets.
We wanted to find out more and reached out to “Juliana” through her very attractive website. A website which looks, for all the world, like a modernist piece of art. All pale, beautifully faded pastel colors. Continue reading →
We were looking through some escort ads the other day and were struck by a pretty girl in Denver Colorado whose picture seemed to jump off the page. It was not that she was particularly striking to look at, there were more beautiful girls on the page, but her face has a certain welcome which is very hard to miss.
The copy to the ad was equally inviting in a fresh, sunny, very gentle way.
“I love what I do. I take wonderful care of myself and I would love to take care of you. No hurry, gentle with a deliciously wicked streak. Let’s chat.” Continue reading →
The corporate world has changed radically in the last forty years. If you think about the role of women in Mad Men and compare it to the serious positions of today’s female CEOs and law firm partners the progress women have made has been extraordinary. At the same time, while women’s roles have changed, men’s desires and needs have not. What has changed, however, is a culture in which a pretty girl working in the steno pool will be recruited to help land the big client. Way too risky: mixing work and pleasure is a pretty sure fire path to a sexual harassment suit.
Which does not change the fact that many a contract can be landed by a friendly feminine touch. Which led us to Karen.
“I used to be an independent escort.” Karen told us on Skype, “Now I am a company girl.” Continue reading →
Many escorts have a straight forward, matter of fact, attitude towards the business. They understand exactly what they are doing and are clear about the pleasures of making good money from escorting. Other girls have a more complex relationship between their lives and escorting.
We got a very nice note from Julia – not her real name – who seems to have taken an almost entirely unique approach to the complications escorting creates in a busy life.
We reached out to Julia on Skype and had a marvelous conversation, but before we get to Julia’s story, here’s the note in full. Continue reading →
Escorts are often asked by their clients to do a bit of role play. Whether it is the naughty cheerleader or the police woman who will not take no for an answer, escorts can often make excellent money simply by gratifying the slightly unusual desires of their clients.
However, we wondered if there were not escorts who went a bit beyond the sex shop costumes and really took seriously the fantasy requests of their clients. While there were dozens of girls who offered “role play” along with the GFE and the pleasures of pampering, we had to really look to find a girl who took escorting role play to the next level.
When you read about escorting there are lots of stories of girls who have become escorts because they have “had to”. The “had to escort” reasons really all come down to one thing: money. Or, more exactly, the absence of money. This is often referred to as “survival sex work” and is a situation very much to be avoided.
The other side of that coin is what I call “escorting by design”. Here a woman makes a conscious and un-coerced choice to escort. Escorting by design lets a woman enter the escorting market in her own way and at her own pace. Continue reading →
Cosmopolitan Magazine once ran a piece on how primary season in the US affects escort’s business in primary states. Big surprise, more clients.
Iowa escorts enjoyed the traffic spike last week too. Rachel*, 38, a Des Moines-based escort, said she woke up each morning last week with “five or six” calls from numbers she didn’t know — a rarity in a state not known for its tourism. “All week, I had excessive calls all the way up until 5 o’clock in the morning, because of the caucuses,” she said. Another Iowa escort named Kylie*, 31, said she noticed the same spike in calls from guys who were not her regulars. They were there for the caucuses, she said, and they were looking for company.

We got a note a few weeks ago from a girl in, of all places, Pittsburgh.
Her note directed us to a website unlike any escorting site we’d ever seen. Pictures, hundreds of pictures, of bars, of restaurants, vintage clothing stores, some high fashion boutiques and, interspersed, shots of a girl. It was hard to tell if it was the same girl from shot to shot.
The words were equally ambiguous. Quotations for the most part. The effect was like a neighbourhood scrapbook of a place we’d never been featuring glimpses of a girl we never saw in full. Of course we were intrigued. Of course we got in touch. Continue reading →
On Monday January 9th, in response to the release of a report by the US Senate on the activities of Backpage.com, Backpage’s adult classified ads section now just directs you to a page with a “censored” label on it:
Clicking on the main “Find out why” link on the ‘censored’ page, leads you here, where Backpage.com proclaims that they have been censored by the US government and have been forced to shut down their adult classified section. However, is this what actually happened? Continue reading →
