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
We were intrigued to find an ad on one of the escort sites which read: 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
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
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
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
