Hooking Is A Pretty Good Gig!

19 posts in this topic

  • Only 13% felt exploited and less than half of those (6%) felt forced into prostitution. Which means 87% were perfectly happy hooking.

That is not a logical conclusion, just because they didn't "feel exploited" does not mean that they were "perfectly happy."

This article nails it! The overwhelming majority of the girl that I have hired have been there because they want to be, obviously the number 1 reason being money. http://apt46.net/2011/11/04/hooking-is-a-pretty-good-gig/

As ever it will depend on the individual WG, some may well be happy as shown by posts on here over the years, others viewing it as purely a job, others doing it to get money fast. As long as doing it freely through their own decision making and an adult i view it as their business. I am always suspicious of surveys and the like in punting as its a secretive business, but if this is anywhere near accurate thats obviously good to hear.

I must have missed all the blanket BBC/Guardian/Independent coverage surrounding the report's publication.

No doubt large sums of public money will ensue for further research........

Am I the only one who slowly feels like her toe nails are curling up in irritation with the constant mentioning how escorts do this job solely because of the money? Surely the clue is in the reference to working... I have seldom encountered anyone who does a job without expecting to be paid. Most people tend to rely on a job that actually provides an income to pay rent/mortgage, utilities etc. I also know few people that love their job every second of every day! In ur case there is little point in skiving and taking a duvet day…

In fairness BH, us punters can get bombarded with the marketing messages from WGs along the lines of "I just love sex, I'm wet and horny 24/7" ; for the hard of thinking it can come as somthing of a disappointment when they realise it's a way of earning a living primarily.

It IS a way of earning a living. Of course. And one that is going to expose you to all kinds of social disdain. Being a sex worker is not a respected way to earn a living. I think the primary thing that makes a WG good, is her attitude. There is nothing as arousing as desire. When you know a guy wants you, is turned on by you, well.....that's very exciting. Desire begets desire. I think it's likely that any good working girl is probably quite highly sexed. In all honesty, the thing that stopped me doing this a long time ago, was terror of my own sexuality. I suppressed it like mad for a very long time. Thought I'd be burnt at the stake in the village square if anyone knew the filth that went on in my head.

Now I have decided to use something that is a very natural and real part of me...ie.....massive sex drive....I feel so much happier. It's not JUST money. Sex is such a primal urge, so intimate, so potentially transcendant. There are people who think that is soiled by the exchange of money, but I don't think thats necessarily true. The media image of the prostitute as 'victim', is part of the whole judeo christian attitude about 'soiled goods'. That's some heavy social conditioning to overcome.

When I first joined punternet, I saw a post by Laura Lee......she has a Camille Paglia quote on her posts which I love. Just puts it in a nutshell. I know I am probably preaching to the converted, but I imagine this survey is not far from the truth. I have known girls who thought of this as a way to make a quick buck, who just couldn't do it, couldn't cope. Those of us who like it don't feel exploited at all.

I wish this job were just sex & money! The high-maintenance clients, the time-wasters, the laundry, remembering what he saw you in last time & making sure you wear something different, etc.

Is this job better than other jobs? In some ways, yes. In others, no. When you combine this, with another job & studying, your life is interesting!

Of course money is a driving force but it isn't like they'll do anything hence the dos and donts list. If it was just money they'd do everything, regardless of personal pref, to increase the greens.

I'd like to try to be a wg, just for a couple of days, my donts list would be MASSIVE! :(

Really? Are there guys who are concerned about this? I know I'm not.

You sound like you're 'on the red carpet' at the Oscars. :lol:

There are upsides and downsides to the 'Gig'. Firstly the financial rewards can be very good, and very high for the number of actual 'paid' hours. Secondly the personal satisfaction rewards, by which I mean knowing you are making someone feel like a million dollars, providing them with pleasure is also very good. Some women also love being sexy, the sense of power and independence too is a big driver(this holds a massive attraction for me).

Downsides are that the job is socially unacceptable, and quite a few lies and cover stories are often required. Also if you spend any time in this occupation it's going to be quite difficult to explain gaps in your CV. Finally the job also comes with a high element of danger and risk. A very high proportion of ladies experience stalking, harassment, robberies, burglaries and physical attacks as a result of being in this occupation. Some also end up dead too. Also unless you have a good cover business it can be difficult to access certain financial or insurance products too.

If you are generally happy in the role, the rewards out balance the risks and all is well. If however you are not comfy with the job then it's obvious you could become quite miserable as a result.

I'm pretty sure I've never had a job that just involved what was listed on the Job Description.

The same for dealing with business associates and meetings, maybe some aspects not so important but still need attention.

Interesting post and good point about heavy socially conditioning to overcome and how a lot of the media portray WGs as victims. :)

Excessive texting & calling before a first meeting. If you book in advance & confirm on the day, you're good.

Excessive special requests - if it's a 1-hour booking, don't ask me to buy anything special - especially something I think is f-ugly.

When I tell a client to book someone else - then he knows he's exhausted my patience.

Oh, and if you think the Customer is always right, you need to go find Mr Selfridge in the Bone Yard!

Ahhhh. Got you Lara.

I have had clients who I have spent several hours in total emailing, on the phone, texts. We DO get paid a high hourly rate, but often that hour has been backed up with a lot of other time, which is what clients dont see. I'm a friendly person, I dont mind having a chat, texting etc if it makes them more comfortable, if it means I get a good picture of what they will like. But there are guys who totally take it a bit too far. And of course there are the ones who in the end don't even book.

But that's the business. Rough with the smooth. And I think it's a real cheek to basically ask me to spend half or more of my fee on some new outfit or equipment, if I already have it, well and good. Otherwise, no chance.
