Company girl: Escorting in business

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

The holidays for escorts and other ASPs

Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas decorations in all the stores the day after Halloween; it’s that time of the year. Good news and bad news for escorts. Good news because many clients love to follow up a Christmas party with the pleasures an escort can offer, bad news because clients are often caught up with family driven Christmas events and can’t get away. Like any mixed blessing, the Holiday Season for escorts is as much about planning and creativity as it is about an expected fall off in business. Continue reading

Escort as a life coach?

We received a note from an escort in Seattle who wrote, “I was reading your article about the girl in Washington DC who runs her ultra-discreet escorting business under the guise of a life coaching business. I thought that was pretty smart because I do much the same thing but with a fetish twist.”

Of course we wanted to know more and we arranged a Skype call with “Miss Fiona Arpel”. Miss Arpel is in her early thirties and when we video conferenced she was in a lovely, fitted, vintage suit sitting in what looked like a book lined study.

“Nicely headmistress don’t you think?” she said with a smile and we dove into our interview. Continue reading

13 reasons why an escort sees no repeat business

It doesn’t matter what kind of industry you’re in; repeat business is inherent to your success as an entrepreneur. Adult entertainment providers rely on their customers. And, it’s not just the one-time client who calls up for a random appointment. The regulars are what become your bread and butter. However, if you seem to be having trouble retaining or attracting repetitive clients, you may be doing something wrong. Identifying what your weak points are is essential to surviving in the business. Consider the following issues and determine if they are obstacles for you: Continue reading

#53. A glimpse into the shadows: An insider’s adventures in the world of escorts

The phone is quiet for once and I’m able to sleep until almost 10am. The shrill ringtone that I’ve chosen for the Angel Escorts phone wakes me out of a dream and it takes me a moment to snap back into reality. When my eyes finally open I see that Mike is holding the phone out to me, his own eyes closed. I press the talk button before checking the caller ID, afraid that I might lose the call if I wait any longer to answer it. Continue reading

#52. A glimpse into the shadows: An insider’s adventures in the world of escorts

I arrive at work in a bit of a stupor thanks to another long night spent manning the phones. Taylor insisted on being on until 3am which meant that my little power nap that I took while Sophie handled the phones did nothing to help me actually catch up on sleep. I rolled out of bed this morning wondering just how long I can ultimately survive on 4-5 hours sleep. There’s no way that one girl ran the phones before me, or if she did, no wonder she quit.
