Courtesan/escort, What;s The Difference?

50 posts in this topic

I see that a lady I have been following, who I haven;t met, now advertises herself as a courtesan, what's the difference between that and an escort, or is it just a name?

In many cases today this is the right answer, ...

...but, if properly used "Courtesan" should mean that the lady excites you with her mind as well as with her body! Start an over-night with the opera, and she'll chat knowlegably during the interval about the composer, libbretist and the experimental production of the same opera in Weimar, then go on to a light supper before returning to her boudoir, and she'll recognise the wine appreciatively, and comment on how interesting it is that there are, both in Europe, and in the new world, particularly Argentina so many talented female winemakers.

Remember the Heiniken advertisement about refreshing parts that other beers miss? A real courtesan should excite parts of a man that other WGs miss. Oh, and I doubt that a real courtesan will be under thirty.

Agreed.

It may also suggest a blog, or similar, of fantastical self-centred moonshine! :D:lol:

Ok. Make it £100 an hour.

Damned right!

In my experience the difference between an escort and a courtesan is that the courtesan

charges more for the same services

will certainly be over 30 (not a problem in itself, of course)

has a pretentious blog and/or website

pretends to have another career and only shags strange men because she loves it

will spend the first hour of a 2 hour booking boring you into submission by talking at you, so that when the sex does eventually come it feels better than it actually is.......

I could go on

Lol, well said. Also I think the definition would be 'Hooker with delusions of grandeur, due to having read a few books, and having an education level beyond secondary school'.

Technically a courtesan is the prostitute or mistress of a noble or wealthy man. The word comes from the word courtier, as in the retinue that were formally employed by the king (or indeed queen). The word evolved to mean to a well-educated and independent woman of loose morals, eventually a trained artisan of dance and singing, especially one associated with wealthy, powerful, or upper-class men who provided luxuries and status in exchange for companionship.

A real courtesan would not have a webpage or offer her services on the internet!

Exactly. And a real courtesan wouldn't get paid. Showered with gifts etc but not paid in cold hard cash.

This correlates with the JRC school of thought..........lol

At least that more expensive in a lot of cases. Its a marketing term that some WGs use to attract a certain type of punter, ususally ones who refer to themselves as gentlemen or clients, kerching. The ACTUAL SERVICE they offer is not necessarily any better or worse than any other WG, as ever that depends on the individual WGs attitude and what she charges isnt linked to that in my experiences. I have read some can speak 8 languages, i can only speak English, and that some can fit into any social setting, i punt for sex and it all takes place in private 121. Good luck to such WGs if they get the number of punters they want, i will stick to WGs who offer me a good sexual service which is all i require and call themselves WGs or prostitutes at a rate i am prepared to pay.

:D that all sounds about right

I'll add in, tends to use unnecessarily long or unusual words to attempt to seem more interlektewal than she possibly is in truth, and ends up coming over like a bit of a try-hard.

I've no doubt you could, and nicely put. :)

Btw, the point you make regarding 'talking at you' is often to be found in FR's. From numerous of them it seems some punters get plenty of mumble, a fumble and maybe a tumble, and pay a lot for the privilege.

I'm something of a fluffy myself but I'm not into self-deception. :mellow:

Spot on, Smiths, as usual

To be fair smiths, I don't think those of us who refer to the men who pay us as 'clients' are necessarily up our own arses. The only time I ever talk about punters is on here, otherwise it's clients. The same goes for all the other escorts I know, some of whom do the 'gentlemen' thing and others who don't. I think of a punter as someone who bets on horses tbh.

Sarita......

Smiths was actually referring to the guys who class themselves as our clients/gentleman callers, not that we refer to them as that.

I agree with your comment though.

What's in a name though?

We all do the same thing on both sides of the fence what ever we call ourselves.

I did say how the punter refers to himself in my post Sarita and i didnt say anything about being up their arses. One punter on here likes to inform me he is a professional gentleman so wouldnt tell lies, yet i know he has posted lies on here. Clearly in his thinking being a professional gentleman makes him better than others who arent, obviously in reality thats not necessarily the case and in his case he is a lying arsehole making him a low life in my eyes. As i said its marketing pure and simple, and if it works good luck to the SP. :)

One thing I've learned in life is that 'Professional' persons are just as likely to be untrustworthy as someone who sweeps the street, and vice versa with the opposite. Some 'Professionals' actually use their 'Status' to try and impress, or prove they are genuine. I take people as they come, how they treat me. Airs, graces, wealth tend not to make a difference. As a result I have friends from a wide range of walks of life.

Back to the point, courtesans I see as paid mistresses who are probably 'commited' to a handful of gentlemen if that. Some ladies call themselves companions, some guys don't like the word 'punter' just like they don't like the 'prostitute' word (probablyt because that conjures up images of girls on the streets) whatever works and feels comfortable for each is fine as long as you aren't hurting anyone, or being so blind you con yourself.

I use several service industries in my life, via independent traders/providers with whom I tend to make appointments. They call me a client, or a customer sometimes as we interact on a 1-2-1 basis, take my money (sometimes before sometimes afterwards) and provide a service. What defines a punter as the customer of a sex provider?

Just watching Moulin Rouge - Nicole Kidmans character is called a courtesan. Maybe an influence on some?

Hoe became Prostitute became Escort became Courtesan will become Companion will become Love Partner will become ............

They are all names to make the woman and sometimes the man feel better about themselves. At the end of the day the woman still gets paid to receive a man's spunk...!!

Love that film x

I think the line where she says she gets paid to be what the men want her to be is the difference in my estimation.

You either get a service or an experience, There are of course historical connotations to a word like courtesan but in its modern interpretation I think we have two things going on. Firstly there are those who call themselves courtesans in a marketing ploy way. Secondly there are those of whom their clients think of as their courtesan.

I'm a prostitute if you want me to be, or I can be your courtesan - It's the customers choice as far as I'm concerned - you can get a service or an experience and a girl worth her salt will intuitively know what you are looking for. (No extra charged for courtesan type meetings lol)

Whatever gets you through the night. It is like the Thailand girls who called their men "tilac" to their faces and "ATM" behind. A woman who calls herself a courtisan is fishing for customers who feel they would never ever go with a prostitute. The name, courtisan, flatters their egos and so they pay more.

Or not as the case may be.

I don't really see any harm in a lady calling herself a courtesan as long as she's classy and serious about providing a good time. I saw a one such lady once and, yes, she was expensive and, yes, she was over 40 and, yes, she had a high opinion of her own worth (although there's nothing wrong with that as long as it's not misplaced) but oh my God was she nice!!!

I suppose I'd have felt differently about her calling herself a courtesan if I'd had a bad time, so I guess for me, irrespective of any historical significance or literal accuracy, any lady can call herself whatever she likes in order to paint whatever picture she wishes - provided she lives up to it and it's not done to mislead. If it's hype then so what? It's a competetive business!
