Wg's Cover Stories

I have always been intrigued as to how girls explain their working pattern, life style and apparent wealth to family and friends. I've known successful girls who have driven BMWs and Audi TTs, invested in property and bought places abroad and had a good life style.I wonder if their family and friends ever think as to how it is funded.

I am sure some girls do tell some family members and close friends but in everyday life we all mention our work and work colleagues when talking to our friends and family. Surely it must make others "interested" if you are vague about such thingsor what you actually do?

Big gob here, 'me I'm talking about', used to find a perverse pleasure in watching somebodies discomfort when I told them what I did. Often it would go.. What do you do for a living? 'Oh I escort', 'that's interesting, bet you get taken on all sorts of expensive dinner dates then', 'no I'm normally too busy on my knees having fun for that'. Then I would sit back and enjoy the stunned silence that always followed.

Was with Jess when she went to sort her life insurance and mortgage, we were in bits laughing at the young man sorting it when she announced what she did for a living. Mind you its annoying when your life insurance premiums are bumped up because of it.

What we do is not illegal so no need not to be honest.

It's not illegal, but certain career paths would be blocked if it were known, so I don't tell my family. I need a new cover story in the Spring, as I want to live in N.Ireland or Ireland for a couple of years, so if anyone can come up with some good ideas, please do share :)

Quite a few people around me know and if I'm asked and I think it's appropriate then I will be honest. If it's probably going to cause an embarassed silence, or simply result in too many questions then I won't(like Doctors the number of daft, intruding or 'clever' questions can get a bit tedious), plus of course discretion is everything. Most people simply don't ask and I keep a tight circle of good friends. I've recently been applying for a few things in another field where I was advised my experiences as a sex worker would be seen as a positive, plus I also don't want anyone who does know me as Strawberryblonde think they can be clever and hold it over me. So when asked I've given my true occupation no cover stories, and immediately the skills and experiences I have to offer have been recognised.

I would have thought one of the biggest problem, this being a cash industry, is coping with money laundering regulations.

And convincing the revenue that you are declaring your true earnings. How to convince them that you don't works 6 days a week 8 hours a day so that is 48 * hourly rate per week.

Well, this may be a little off-topic and apologies if you've heard this one before but a little joke for Christmas:

An Irish girl who's been working abroad goes home for Christmas. Of course, the family is delighted to see her, especially as she's obviously been doing really well - top of the range Mercedes, mink coat, gold jewellery, etc etc.

Her father asks her: "So what exactly is it you've been doing to earn all this money?"

She replies: "I've become a prostitute."

Her father flies into a rage: "Leave my house at once! I'm disgusted by you, you've brought shame on the family!"

She says: "Ah, all right then and I suppose you won't be wanting the 10,000 Euros I was going to give you as a Christmas gift?"

The father calms down a little and asks again: "What is it you said you've become?"

She replies: "I'm a prostitute, Daddy, a prostitute!"

The father responds:"Oh forgive your old father and come and give me a hug, darling - I thought you said 'Protestant."

Of course I very much doubt anyone is going to post a cover story on a public forum.

Oh for the day that escorting becomes a respected recognised profession!

Careers Teacher: Well Lydia, you're good with people, self motivated, have common sense and a little bit slutty- you should consider a career in prostitution.

I've known one who told people she was an aromatherapist. Unfortunately rather too many people seem to know rather too much about this subject and she's been obliged to learn something about it. Another says she's a financial adviser. ("I must warn you, things may down as well as up. And past performance may not be a guide to the future.")

Its one of the main reasons, that so many sex workers are from abroad, its not a job that everyone is comfortable doing in their own back yard. Only a few make that much money that hiding it, is a prob, plenty of dodgy financial types float through the saunas always ready to give a bit of advice.

I think many will use a story that doesnt deviate too much from the truth with just a few 'nips and tucks' here and there. Makes it more plausible. Everyones probably has a different story but like Strawberry says maybe best not revealed on a public forum.

As Frank Carson would say. " that's a cracker ".

The best lies have their basis in truth. Whether it be the truth from your own experiences or from others doesn't matter. The more complicated the lie the more likely it is to trip you up.

Got to laugh at the Careers Teacher, mind you that is not quite the same as actual teachers, who like nurses, get the reputation of being "easy". Now that cant be said about us WG who are anything but. :D

Ah, if only the world worked that way.

Mind you, that's a rather good idea for the beginning of a role play...

Everyone thinks I have a job in an office - part time. It works. I am low key and would not (could not) display any form of wealth - besides I have no wish to.

I bought my Mum some Chanel No.5 for Crimbo and she told me off for spending my money. That's as spend thrift as I get. She deserved it though.

Oh...how I dream of a cash-less society.

Every penny should be tracked. All earnings declared and tax paid on everything monetary exchange that qualifies. You can use clever encryption to 'hide' the nature of the transaction but still label it as income. I'm not saying it would be perfect and there will still be people trying to find loopholes, but it would be better than the way it is now.

God, tax revenue would go through the roof and we'll end up with a huge surplus! Woohoo!!

I adore Chanel. I received my first bottle of No 5 from my dad for Christmas when I was 18 and have loved it ever since. I bought myself the large bottle this year which I will share with my daughter because she loves it too and it was £105. Can you believe that ? It wll last me a darned long time I can tell ya!

I used to do office work, so I just stick with that and make it sound as boring as possible so that people change the subject for me. :) I "take a lot of time off sick" to explain my easy schedule.

Also, I've found that having a "wealthy boyfriend" story works well for people who aren't particularly close to me, to explain the occasional nice dinner or low-key holiday. And having a nice flat is supposedly due to my parents or my flatmate's parents being well-off. Spoiled little rich girl. Ha.

Mostly I don't and can't splash out (London living is expensive, and I'm working off some loans anyway), and this job is a good exercise in learning to talk about others' lives instead of mine.

I guess that the closer any "cover story" is to the truth it will be easier to "stand up" in public if necessary.

I am aware of more than one WG who claims to be a financial advisor, but doesn't know the current ISA limits, for example. That's a bit of a give away.
