Why Don’t Women See Escorts?

It has to be said, it is predominantly men who use sex workers. Yes, you may hear the occasional story of women booking a guy, but they are about as rare as hen’s teeth. This helps feed into the idea that the sex industry is ‘misogynistic’ and dominated by men who are having sex with women like they are pieces of meat. Though we know this is inherently wrong, it does lead to a big question. Why do men see escorts and women traditionally don’t? Continue reading Why Don’t Women See Escorts?

Why Has My Partner Gone Off Sex and How Can We Fix It?

A lack of sex in a relationship is never a good thing. In the short term it can lead to tension and frustration, whilst in the long term it can bring a relationship crashing down. Unless you are in an asexual relationship and have gravitated to someone of the same ilk as yourself, it is unlikely anyone in a sexless relationship is actually going to be happy, even if one of them can cope or fill the time better than the other.

How Do I Tell My Parents I am an Escort?

Being a sex worker can be tough. Not only do you have to deal with some clients that you may not choose to in the normal course of things, you also have the unfortunate threat of violence. However, one big worry for many is how they tell their parents or loved ones what they do. So, how do you tell your parents you are an escort?

What Should Escorts Do if a Client Won’t Pay Anything or Negotiates the Amount?

Escorting is most certainly hard work. Not only do you have to sometimes spend time with clients that you may not choose to in your non working life, you occasionally have to deal with idiots who will either ‘negotiate’ the price, or refuse to pay all together. This can be a stressful time for any sex worker, as you can imagine. So how should an escort deal with such a scenario? Continue reading What Should Escorts Do if a Client Won’t Pay Anything or Negotiates the Amount?

Why Do Most Sex Workers Choose The Sex Industry?

We are realists here at Escort Advertising, and we are well aware our industry has a bad rep in certain areas. One of these areas is the reasons that sex workers enter the industry in the first place. To be fair, these reasons spouted in the mainstream media often state that entry isn’t out of choice, or at best, it is the last chance saloon. Continue reading Why Do Most Sex Workers Choose The Sex Industry?

What Should You Do if an Escort Doesn’t Speak English?

When it comes to the escort industry, communication is key. Everything is about consent, and it is that ability to speak to each other about what you want/are allowed to do which makes the experience a comfortable, consensual one. This leads to the very important question, is it OK to meet an escort who doesn’t speak the native language? Continue reading What Should You Do if an Escort Doesn’t Speak English?

The Pros and Cons of Working as a TS Escort

After over five year working in the industry, I have come to realise that sex work is a complicated thing. It takes a special kind of professional to be able to see a number of clients in a day and treat it like I would see spending a day in the office. On the flipside, if a sex worker hates every second of their daily work then they maybe aren’t cut out for this kind of job. If I hate my job, I can skive and do the minimum amount I can to keep myself off the radar of the bosses and not get fired. A sex worker will likely be having sex with someone they wouldn’t normally choose to be doing it with. It certainly is a test of your character, and it is even more complicated for transexual escorts, who find there are a number of pros and cons to working in the industry.
