Average Career Span For A Wg

38 posts in this topic

After seeing profiles come and go quite frequently on AW etc and hearing of girls moving from agency to agency, i was just wondering whats the average career span for a WG? Also what is the longest youve known a girl to be in the trade?

Technically a girl can be in it from 18 till she is beyond her 60's, wether anyone has actually done that or not though I really couldnt answer

I'd have thought thirty years is long enough for any job. After that, it's time for a change.

How long is a piece of string it depends on several factors, for example;

 

Why did she get into it, I've noticed that most Thai's over here, are here for themoney and tend to be here for about 12 months or so (there are exceptions obviously)

How ambitious she is (quite a few move in "management", as parlour/agency owners)

How much she enjoys it, The wgs who enjoy it tend to work for longer than, those who don't (no surpirise there)

How long before they find themselves in a relationship (obviously getting into a relationship, can make being a WG difficult, again using the Thais as an example, i'd say for they this is the second biggest reason to stop, after making enough money)

 

The other thing I'd say is that in the almost 20 years since my first punt, no 2 wgs have been even vaguely the same, none have been average, and in fact I'd go so far asto say they've all been unique. With the best being amazing and the worst being downright scarey.

I don't know the 'true' average career span for a girl.  I have noticed though a lot of young, beautiful and very talented girls are leaving this business very quickly!  Some within months, others within a couple of years max.

I assume the average time is when you have paid for your house and paid for your kids to go to school!   Finish once the future is secure and the sexual libido has diminished?

Earlier this month, about 12 days ago in the morning to be precise, I was hacking into the HMRC sa returns with a friend for another project but happened to pull returns with the word 'escort' for the last year and the previous year, and 18% of those listed as escorts in the previous year didn't make a return showing any activity the following one.

Assuming ( and these are big assumptions ) that everyone did at least 1 full year as a WG before entering the tax return system, and that the rate of leaving the profession is constant at 18% a year, then the average is 7.77 years on my arithmetic.

 

And anyone using this as a basis for anything at a all is a bigger fool than someone on Mr T's radar, as it is full of holes and other suspect assumptions including that escorts don't leave and then return to the profession at a later date and that I may just have made this shit up, ho ho

 

In practice it won't be that high as say students or immigrants or even others may choose this job for very specific short term reasons without ever entering the HMRC radar.

I agree.

I've never known one profession where there is so much speculation.

Who cares how long a WGs career span is, who cares how much she earns, if she enjoys it or not etc etc.

As long as she gives a great service and makes you smile when done it's all good! I don't see why people are so adamant to know about WGs business. Discretion is key :D

I saw escort a couple of times within three months of each booking about three years ago.     She had only been doing it for a short time and about 18 months later I noticed she was gone.   She had split from her partner and had bought his share of the house and was looking for a way to pay it off as quickly as possible so she was working part time fitting in escorting with her shifts as a police sergeant.

A few of the wg's I've seen are only part timers, a couple of whom escort to reach a specific financial target. One of my favourites worked for a few months then went off abroad to her favourite place until she ran out of cash, then came back for a few months. She's now qualified to teach something she loves doing out there so the running out of cash scenario is less likely and I doubt she'll be back anytime soon. Good luck to her, wish I could make a living on a paradise island somewhere!

I have often idly wondered about this-especially given the very high turn-over of profiles of those advertising on AW. I have kept track of the number of AW advertising WGs who have visited my neck of the woods (together with the date when they joined AW) for a number of years (from 2010 to 2014) and of the 1852 escorts I logged very few still have AW pages still up and many of those are inactive.

 

There are a few who joined AW before 2010 and a higher proportion of those are still active which implies that most WGs have a very short half-life in the business (less than a year) but there are a subset who are longer stayers. Those are the ones who were active long enough to appear in the tax records (as mentioned by bongo)-assuming that they ever registered for tax or put escort as profession-which is doubtful.  

 

There are a number of academic and sociological studies on escort longevity but these will tend to overestimate staying power as those who escort for a short time only will not appear in the surveys. So my guess is-and it’s only a guess-is that the average half life is way less than that estimated by bongo (namely 7.7 years) as he freely acknowledges.

It is interesting to do a back of the envelope calculation-let us assume that the average length of stay in prostitution is 5 years and girls start escorting at 20 and that the average female life span is 75 years, that would mean that if the total number of escorts in Scotland and England is the oft quoted 80,000 then the number of ex escorts will be 10 (the number of 5 year cohorts between 25 and 75) x80,000 = 0.8M.

 

Now there is no way that this number is reliable-the 80,000 figure was arrived at by multiplying the average number of escorts in a sample of outreach services (in 2007-8) by the number of known outreach services and then multiplying that number by a “fudge factor” for the guestimate of the proportion of those who are active in prostitution but not using outreach services (see Cusick, L., Kinnell, H ., Brooks-Gordon, B. and Campbell, R (2009) Wild Guesses and Conflated Meanings: Estimating the size of the sex worker population in Britain. Journal of Critical Social Policy, Vol. 29(4), pp.703-719), these authors conclude that the number could lie between  36,000 and three times that.

 

If the average time in prostitution was less than five years then the 0.8M number would be an underestimate -assuming the number of prostitutes has remained stable over the last 50 years-a big assumption.

 

It is likely that many of those on AW do not come into contact with the outreach services-perhaps because a lot of them are foreign, only working for a short time in the UK so the   0.8M ex prostitutes would again be an underestimate countered by those foreign ex prostitutes who leave the UK.

 

The point is not that these figures are accurate but that there are probably a very large number of ex-prostitutes (exited women in radfem parlance)-maybe ten times the number who are actively working-that are still around.

In short, I don't there are any easy ways to verify facts/figures for length of service but once you've dropped into the paid scene you are probably

always going to realise that management of you asset (vagina) can be had for not too much trouble and if a girl can altogether detach herself

from the sex with punters to sex with their partner while still maintaining a balance and providing a good service to the punter then over the

years they may float in and out of the scene when needs must.

I also noticed foreign girl who come here regularly, for several years now, from either the Americas or Europe, stay for 2-3 months then go back to their countries for several months, then come back again.  What do they say they do in the UK when back in their countries?

And some of them stay :) After 8 years in the industry, both in France and England, I've never been so glad to provide my services in London.

All sorts of things, people travel the world working in every sort of industry, its not unusual to work abroad for months or even years. It doesnt need much imagination to make up a job. Not much different to making one up for people you know when you do this job in your own country but can't let people know the truth

Emily, do many escorts have partners?  I just presumed all the girls I've slept with in this business were single, but from what you've said above maybe at least few of them had partners?

Many escorts have partners.

Just as many escorts are single, but does it matter?

Probably about 4 years

 

Year 1 is when they are 18 (runs until about age 25)

Year 2 is when they are 22 (runs from age 25 to about 32)

Year 3 is when they are 25 (runs from age 32 to about 40)

Year 4 is when they are 30 (runs from age 40 to ???)

 

:unsure:

A high number of them likely had partners. We are humans after all. I dont and have not for the last 7 years since I came back to the industry, I have constantly had it reconfirmed that I am NOT the norm in this aspect

Some do, some do not. It really intrigues me that guys often assume the woman is single. They themselves often have their own relationships, so it sometimes feels like a double standard or at least a one-sided expectation. Not everyone however is like that.
