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 →
“If you have to say you are classy you aren’t.” said Simone in a Skype interview. “At a certain level men actually pay attention and what they are paying attention to are all the cues women of a certain status scatter without even knowing it.” Continue reading →
We had talked to “Summer” in the early fall but we had seen her ads last winter. “Apres ski with Me!” is a headline which you just don’t miss.
“OK, I love to ski.” said Summer on Skype. “But a season’s skiing is expensive and you really can’t make much money as a liftie or waitressing in one of the ski-resorts. Plus, during the season, finding a place to rent is crazy expensive.”
“I’d done a little escorting in college. You know, just end of the month and the rent is due sort of thing. Nothing fancy. But I liked what I saw of escorting, even with an agency, and I thought I might keep doing it a bit when I graduated.” Continue reading →
In the adult entertainment industry, both providers and clients get turned down and hand out rejections daily. It’s a common thing, but it’s kind of a big deal when it involves you personally. Knowing how to deal with it when it’s on your plate (as the giver or receiver) is the key to making sure that communications are clear and all interactions remain cordial and “nice” between all parties involved.
Continuing our series on “not your typical escort” we ran across a girl, a remarkably beautiful girl, who works with the name “Constance”. We wanted to speak to her because her ad, her pictures and her rates were eye popping.
Before we were able to contact her we realized, as we scoured the internet, that Constance had a huge internet presence. A website, a Twitter account, an innocent but nicely naughty Facebook page. Instagram, Pinterest and Google+ all featured her pictures.
That internet presence barely hinted that Constance was an escort. It was much more about photography and modelling. But, as we dug deeper it was apparent Constance also had a presence on a number of escort advertising websites. Continue reading →
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 and 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 →
Contacting a new escort always presents a chance that your request for an appointment may get turned down. She could be too busy, not accepting new customers or not like something about you from the beginning. It may feel like providers are inconsistent with how they accept new clients, but many of them do adhere to some standard protocols. You’ve just got to understand them to have them make sense. Consider these reasons providers DO accept a client’s request for time: Continue reading →
