What Is The Legal Age To Be An Escort?

42 posts in this topic

Basically I need an answer for this, what is the legal age for escorts in the U.K? Is it 18 which i,m hoping it is or 16?

I,m asking because I saw an escort 5 years ago and there is a question mark over her stated age on the agency website as she may have been 17 at the time.

I,m not going to name the agency nor escort and am hoping i,m wrong and that the site needs to update the escorts profile with her correct current age. I have seen the escort since and asked if she remembered me which she did, but she insisted she did not see me in 2007 but later which isn,t right and i,m also willing to give her the benefit of the doubt as her birthday may be later this year or as I say it is an oversight on the agency's part.

Hope someone can verify the legal age as it is starting to worry me and hope you can put my mind at ease.

Ah thank you, that's the answer I was hoping for. The escort may have been 18 when I saw her, it all depends when her birthday is.

I'm baffled. You were hoping that the legal age was 18, not 16. But IF it had been 16 you would have been definitely in the clear! Now you're not... you may, or may not, have broken the law.

But.... honestly.... I'd take any age quoted on any escort profile with an healthy dose of scepticism.

Eh? 5 years ago? She may have been 17? Or possibly 25 like most. Jesus Christ. Worry about something important. 5 years ago, fuck sake.

Right I know my initial post is confusing, thats why i,m hoping someone could clear it up. I am worried as I may have seen someone who was too young to be an escort 5 years ago but only just realised yesterday. If she was 18 when I saw her then yes she was legal so everything is ok but if she was 17 which she may have been then obviously no thats not ok, I didnt know the legal age so asked the question. She certainly was not 25, I think I have the right to be concerned no matter how long ago it was as this escort is still working for the same agency.

Would like some WG,s views on this if possible.

Its 18 but any decent Establishment should be asking for ID in my view. If they did this and it was fake then they and you had no way of knowing obviously, not that ignorance is a defence though necessarily legally.

"Legal age to be an escort" makes it sound like the woman would be committing an offense if she was working (or forced to work) under that age but the girl is not breaking the law, only anyone coercing or controlling her and anyone visiting her is. So there is no "legal age to be an escort"; there is an age for an escort under which any person purchasing her sexual services may be guilty of an offense. You are automatically committing an offense if you visit an escort under the age of 13 (even if she looks 21 and you genuinely believe her to be of age) and you are committing an offense if you visit an escort aged over 13 but under 18 and either know she is that age or cannot reasonably claim to have believed she was over 18.

Anyway, spartan, it sounds like you shouldn't be worrying as even if she was under 18 you reasonably believed her to be over 18 when you visited her.

So what are you going to do? Ask to see her birth certificate or passport?

If she was under 18, what are you going to do then? Hand yourself in to the police?

Forget about it. It was over 5 years ago. She was probably over 18, and even if she wasn't, you didn't know, and she most definitely is now.

Yes she probably was 18 and I know I should forget about it and not too worry but it remains at the back of my mind. The website states she is 22 now so IF and it is a big IF that is true then back in 2007 she was possibly 17 (bad) or possibly 18 (good) I cant remember the age on the site when I booked her but I do know she was 19 on the site for about 2 years so that tells you something! I remember the booking quite vividly as she was one of the 1st escorts I had seen and we all remember our 1st punts dont we?

Thank you for the informed answers, it has helped and hopefully the agency will update their site as and when.

Whether legal or not I think it's pretty awful that any teenager has got into this game at all. I don't believe an 18 year old is emotionally mature enough, let alone savvy and streetwise to deal with the crap.

Well I'd rather she was an escort than worked street Lyd. No matter how 'awful' we think it might be, younger girls than her work street and are coerced and pimped. :(

I think 18 year olds are all very different too so you can't say none of them can cope with it.

If 18 and thus an adult i dont agree. I have punted with a number of 18 and 19 year olds over the years who seemed to me to be far more mature than other older WGs. As long as of free choice i see it as up to an adult what they decide to do. They were certainly savvy enough, i cant guarantee they were emotionally mature enough of course but age isnt always what dictates that in my experience.

The other way of looking at it is why shouldnt an adult be able to make her own mind up about whether to become a WG. :)

well they can vote, join the services and get killed, get married (Yes i know you can at 16), have a mortgage etc at 18. why not become a WG?

the differencies in maturity between different girls at 18 is massive. And I am not sure many 25 yr olds are mature enough.

It must be worrying for a punter to think that you may have seen an escort who was not old enough to be working in the industry (under 18). However I think that if the basis for your concern is the stated age of the agency website then, like you said, you need to absorb this information with a healthy dose of scepticism.

Don't worry yourself, 18 in hooker years is at least 23 in the real world ;)

I believe it's more of a sliding scale, with increasing age comes an increasing deduction of years!

Well whether she was 18,19,20 or whatever the fact remains she has stayed with the same agency and only that agency for 5 years and is more than happy there so thats the main thing.

If I was you I'd be a lot happier knowing I'd seen her then as opposed to another punter visiting her now 5 years on down the line ;-)

As others have said, girls lie about their age anyway and agencies aren't going to update their details every time they have a birthday. Besides which the police would have to delve into five year old records, which probably don't exist, to trace you and then they need to prove you "did not reasonably believe her to be over 18". Ignorance, for want of a better word, IS a defence...so long as your belief was honest and reasonable. As a result the police would never bother.

??what records?? I sincerely hope no girls keep records. And if they do what do they put in the punters name field? John?

Well that was my point "five year old records, WHICH PROBABLY DON'T EXIST". But agencies do keep records to some extent. I know if I ring Olina's agency they say "hello Mr Kevin", even though my calls are not frequent or regular.

Oh and when I wrote a bad field report for a Barracuda girl, where my main complaint was with the agency, I received a text a day or two later offering me a discount on my next booking. Clearly they'd matched the time and details with my number, so they were keeping records too...probably not for 5 years though.
