Hello from a new member needing some guidancex

14 posts in this topic

Hello there!

This is my first post on here but I have browsed the forum regularly. I am a working girl, 22 from London town. Now, I am new to this industry, have worked in a wonderful parlour for the last 6 months.. Hmm I guess I'm not that new to it after half a year! Anyway, since browsing the forum, I have read many posts and have given alot of thought to how to further my career. I've noticed some ladies work both in parlours and as independents, and I wanted to ask a few questions about being an independent, and just very much hope they are not silly questions....

Firstly, for incalls, do you actually work from your own flat? I would imagine that could be quite dangerous? And how do you make sure you are safe on outcalls?

I don't intend to begin any independent work until after Xmas but when I do, ill create a profile on the site not to be named... But what other places do you advertise?

How do working girl 'tours' work?

And are there many girls who work at a parlour and also do a few private jobs?

I really hope these don't sound like silly questions!

I'm glad to have finally posted on here and hope to lots more!

Love x

Hi there,

Your best bet is to get yourself over to Saafe. There are many excellent articles there which will guide you in the right direction and also you'll find a link to the escort buddy scheme, run by Penny BBW which is essential if you're considering going it alone.

http://www.saafe.info/

Good luck. :cool:

I second that, Saafe is where you want to be. Most of us are independants there. Read all you can and visit the forum.:cool:

Hi,

You may not take a great deal of notice from a punter, however I have seen enough ladies to have a reasonable idea of how to make a profit.

As the other ladies have stated, it has got to be highly recommended that you take precautions with saafe, and the buddy scheme. This is a given, and really basic stuff.

Those that seem to have their head screwed on (and make money), continue to work at an established parlour for 1 or 2 shifts a week (bread and butter, backbone of the business etc). After those regular shifts,hopefully that will give you a reasonable income.The remaining days of the week that you choose to work can then be managed more thoroughly to give you some decent work/life balance - and better profitability.

Please dont be like a builder/plumber and over commit to what you can do, and start letting people down, as this will only frustrate your clients.

Other than that - take plenty of time off!. Dont run yourself into the ground, and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Badsin

ps. look up the New York yellow cab theory, excellent analysis of the working psyche!.

(i'm really boring!!!)

I completely disagree with the parlour comment. Working independently and working in a parlour are two utterly different things.

I 'have my head screwed on' but have never and never intend to work in a parlour, they are also not the backbone of the industry.

Lovely, there are a lot of different ways to work, you can read about this on the main saafe site. There are ladies who do both parlour and independent work and also who do agency and independent.

For incalls, some people use their home, some rent an flat specifically, some sublet and others use hotels and serviced appartments. It all depends on what works for you.

Penny can set you up with a buddy to help you start up and this person, or anyone else, can also be your security buddy who you check in with before and after bookings. There is a section on saafe about outcalls.

There are lots of places to advertise, including punternet, but you will need your own site. Many people use moonfruit.com, it's easy to use and you can also buy a domain name cheaply on there.

you can buy a .co.uk url from lowcostnames for £6.00 + vat. for that fee you get web forwarding, so when people put in www.fattart.co.uk, it will be directed to your moonfruit pages,

and emails to sales@fattart.co.uk will be forwarded to your normal email addy.

The only advice I would give is this;

Anyone setting up business or who needs advice in the early stages of their career should listen to those who have been in the business for a while.....and a number of them too.

I'm talking providers here.

Do not listen to the customers re general working practice.

The customer only comes into the equation for his/her specific needs at the point of sale/service.

In my busness I've had customers/clients advise me on how to run it. They haven't a clue. Other people doing the same business as me do though.

It is they who I have listened to.

Unfortunatly very few actually listen to good advice and even less actually follow it through

my advice would be to not only to have a site on ** but to have your own website just make sure that the domain name is registerd to yourself ( It dose not have to be in your name but a name that you can access as such just in case your webmaster goes awol then all your hard work is in vain)

try and buddy up with someone local to yourself and take on there ideas if they are succesfull then there is a reason as to why

also save a portion of your money that you earn - nothing worse than looking back and thinking i earnt 20k in xxxmonths and all i have is a nice handbag and a pair of jimmy choos that i dont even wear and like anymore :confused:

A bit unfair. Parlours certainly have historically been the 'backbone' at least since 1957. If they are now going to be hounded out of existence, that's different..
