Prostitution Addictive?

56 posts in this topic

Im already feeling addicted... The money is so good and the job is satisfying, has allowed me to travel, meet new people and try different things. Now I've only been doing this for a month as an independent and I already feel like there's no way I could ever go back. Being able to pay bills without stress is amazing. It pays more than some if the most well paid jobs and doesn't require years if study. Just curious as to what everyone else thinks about this.

Certainly for the 'average' working girl the difference in salary from what she can earn as a prostitute is many orders of magnitude higher than what they could possibly earn out in the 'real world', especially for the young ladies who are straight out of college with no further education. There are of course exceptions to this where a WG could be a model or a successful businesswoman, but the law of averages suggests that the chances of a WG being able to do this is in line with the wider population, i.e. very unlikely.

I'd imagine access to that amount of (relatively) easy money must be very seductive for someone who potentially doesn't have professional qualifications or other access to other skills that give you an entry into the higher paid professions.

I liken it to professional footballers. Sure, someone like Cristiano Ronaldo had he not been a footballer could have been a male model, but what would Wayne Rooney be doing if he weren't a footballer? There was actually a TV ad that played on this idea, and it was funny because it was true.

Of course the apocryphal story about it come from Leeds, just after Alan Amith had signed for them. He went into the Mercedes dealership to get a new car, and the salesman had to write the cheque out for him as he couldn't spell 'thousand'

Come back in six months or a year and then tell us if you are still addicted. ;)

I was addicted after my first appointment and nothing has changed but as we know

addictions are hard to break.

Only last week I was with a long term client and he was grinning like mad. I asked why

and he replied "Adele I am not sure who is enjoying this more... me or you!"

I have to be honest and say that I would probably still be addicted in about six months! The funny thing is, I have a degree in computer science which I worked very hard for... Yet once I got into the business I had no intention of using it?? I mean I still use my skills in this business ie web development and so forth buut otherwise ive completely lost interest. If I were to continue and use my degree I'd probably go into a job that pays about £40'000 per year maximum (with a lot of work and time being commited) but it seems limited to what I can earn within my first year doing this. plus the job is more fun, easier hours and so forth.

I'm sure that with the right amount of financial discipline a WG who starts at a young-ish age could set herself up for life. Sadly only a few seem to do this and it's an unfortunate fact of life that once WG's get past a certain age the number of clients and associated income declines. Good luck to you and make hay while the sun shines !

Yes I suppose age has a lot to with the fact that most quit after some time. However, if she takes good care if her body, looks and maintains a good attitude I think she could possibly attract a whole new type of client. My goal is to save as much as possible and invest in a business of my own... Of course we'll just have to see how I manage with that as I prefer spending more!

I'm in the same situation. I love the job, and can't see myself anything else, but I'm still putting time into getting economics and business qulifications, and hoping to build up a property portfolio and become a landlord. I'd also be able to rent to WG openly and honestly, which would be very good for the community.

Wonder what a WG puts on her CV after she stops being a WG? If you have been doing the job for 4-5 years say, and then try get a "normal" job, employers might wonder what you were doing for those years

I got a degree in Multimedia Computing, but no intention now of using it. After 6 years of studying it (4 at Uni and 2 at college), i got bored of it and couldnt see myself doing it as a full time job.

If i were honest, Uni was just an excuse to not get a proper job

From talking to various WGs it's why they either go and start their own businesses (no-one questions the boss!) or they have a 'regular' part time job or university courses to cover the time when they're working.

I'm regularly surprised at how many fingers some WGs have in various pies (and that's not a euphemism! :lol:) and still work as an escort.

The title of your post is really interesting, but I don't think you are addicted. Addiction (outside of chemical addiction to substances introduced into the body) is basically a compulsion to do something that satisfies nothing other than the compulsion itself. Secondary benefits may be derived and may determine if the individual experience was pleasurable or not, but the key thing is to sayisfy the compulsion.

To me you just sound like somebody who enjoys their job, and good luck to you! You use the term "addicted" but i think you are just using it a an adjective to relate the fact that you can't believe how good your job has turned out?

Now that's not to say you won't become dependent on the large amount (relative to many other professions) of money you earn, but that's not addiction. The driving force for addiction comes from inside, not external sources.

So if the title of this post should be "working as a prostitute is great isn't it?" then I'll bugger off now, but it's a shame as the whole subject of addiction in relation to punting is very interesting and worthy of discussion.

This is certainly true of me, although I am pretty sure my eventual career might seem a bit bland in comparison! :o

I love my job. Yes! But I still feel that it's an addiction :) the reason I say so is because I'm addicted to the rush. The money, the "naughtiness", the whole experience. The last time I felt this way was when I was writing articles online to earn commission through google adsense. Once I got my first check through I was determined as ever to become successful and earn good money. I wrote articles all day and earned a nice little extra on the side but it's earning potential was limited and I soon lost interest. I'm addicted to earning money and to having better life. I don't think there are many woman who would willing choose to give up such good money. It's like working as a CEO and willingly giving up your job to be a waitress. Even if they did and god forbid money problems arose theyd probably go back into the business (even if it was just for a short time). I feel like I'm babbling an awful lot as I'm actually finding it quiet hard to maintain my reasons for referring it to addiction. It's the money that's addictive, I suppose thats the point im trying to make.

There's an old saying - "Escorts never really retire, they just take long holidays". ;)

I think that's probably true, in fact if I had to choose one, I'd say the third time I "retired" was particularly poignant. :D

If you did it regardless of the money and because of the naughtiness, then I might concede that you were addicted to prostitution. But by your own admission you like having money, butthat's not an addiction in itself. Now spending money, especially more than you have on things you don't need might be classified an addiction, however the means by which you earn that money is not an addiction, unless the money is merely a by-product of a compulsion you have, for example, to perform sex for money, which could be considered an addiction to prostitution, IMO of course :-)

So I am interested to know if the compulsion needs to be satisfied for you or not? So are you really addicted, or just on to a good thing?

It's not just the money it's the whole lifestyle of things as well I think. Especially, I imagine, as an indie, being free to set your own hours and not bound by the 'norm' of the 9-5 day. The self confidence boost for me has also been a surprising but welcome product of the job that I didn't factor in when I decided to start escorting. To say it is just the money that makes the job attractive isn't right for me, as this job (as for most I guess) pays my rent and my car insurance and my food etc etc etc etc and since I can't dedicate myself to it full time I haven't got pots of money but I do alright and I don't know how else I would manage without it.

You can say that you were self employed, which would be perfectly true and running a business that you could talk about. As a qualified massage therapist I always use that to explain gaps in my CV.

As i always say i couldnt care less myself, it doesnt in any way affect my punts so its not relevant to me. When i meet my very attractive but taken financial advisor who is self employed i dont ask or comment on her tax affairs either as once again it doesnt affect the service she offers and i receive. :)

On the contrary, there are many loopholes available for the rich to exploit, ask Philip Green. Any business that is cash sales is easily exploited too. It's those that are also claiming benefits that are the low-life.

That's a bit of a sweeping generalisation. You have no idea how much escorts and WGs make, you just know their hourly rate. Some of us (i.e. me :P ) just like the fact that we don't have to work as many hours (as in a 'normal' job) to make a living. This leaves me with spare time to bring up my children, study, and do the shopping.

And I do have business premises - my incall place, and I do spend money on travelling expenses when on outcalls. I also have an accountant.

Finally, If I was earning enough to be liable for VAT, I'd be very happy indeed; alas, I am far from earning that amount.
