When people think of escorts, if they have any image at all, they tend to see girls in their twenties with killer bodies and legs forever. Blondes stepping off the pages of the now non-nude Playboy magazine. Escorts embody a social fixation on youth.
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.
There are lots of ways for a girl to escort. Whether she operates her escorting business as an independent or works through an agency, every girl will run her escorting life according to her own priorities.
For some escorts it is all about making the most money fast. For others, keeping a balance between escorting and the rest of their lives takes priority. But we were amused to see an escort ad which took balance to an extreme. Continue reading →
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 →
A few weeks ago a friend of mine made what can only be described as a big score. Big as in the sale of part of his company for millions of dollars, many millions of dollars, in cash. I saw him a couple of weeks after the big win and, perhaps naively, asked where he had been. In his best Austin Powers voice he announced, “Vegas, Baby, Vegas!” 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 →
It is easy enough to think of escorting as a pretty matter-of-fact transaction. The escort advertises her availability, the client spots the ad and gets in touch, a fee for time is worked out and the transaction is completed, often with more than a few consenting adult activities. Nothing complicated there.
“Of course you could run your escort business like that.” said Sylvie a twenty eight year old escort from a smaller city in the South, “but where is the fun in that? And where are the regulars?” Continue reading →
I can make a pretty good argument that style is a hundred, maybe a thousand, things and every girl evolves her own. But the one thing which you can change is actually being conscious of your style and the style to which you would like to be accustomed. For an escort style is not an optional extra. In fact and escort’s style often determines how often she is booked and what her rates can be. Continue reading →
