thinking of becoming escort

55 posts in this topic

Though I say so myself I'm a very attractive, slim and friendly girl with a high sex drive and as I'm financially not in a good situation at the moment I'm thinking of becoming an escort. There's just a few things I'm not sure about and want to know...

1. I live and study in Edinburgh in Scotland. Is there a lot of demand of WG's in this area?

2. I'd only be comfortable seeing one punter a night and I'd only be working 5 nights a week. Would I actually manage to get a punter for at least an hour each night? Would I actually earn any money (wanting to earn between 1000 to 2000 pounds a month) if I limited myself to 1 punter a day?

3. How do working girls get treated by their punters? Are they respectful and polite or rude and abusive? I realise you have good experiences and bad experiences but is it mostly good or mostly bad?

Hi there,

Your best bet is to visit http://www.saafe.info/.

It's an excellent resource of information for new ladies or those who wish to start out. There is also a forum where you can chat with other newbies and more experienced escorts too. Good luck. :o

Wherever there are people, there is demand. in most major cities in the UK, there are numerous WGs.

2. I'd only be comfortable seeing one punter a night and I'd only be working 5 nights a week. Would I actually manage to get a punter for at least an hour each night? Would I actually earn any money (wanting to earn between 1000 to 2000 pounds a month) if I limited myself to 1 punter a day?

It's entirely your own prerogative. :o Your working hours are for you to choose, since you are working for you, not anybody else.

3. How do working girls get treated by their punters? Are they respectful and polite or rude and abusive? I realise you have good experiences and bad experiences but is it mostly good or mostly bad?

It's like in all walks of life. Some persons are rude, whilst most are not.

I'd 2nd the suggestion that you visit the saafe site but to attempt to answer your questions...

1. A search for WGs on a site we must not name returns 130 for within 3 miles of EH1 so there must be quite a bit of demand.

2. I know in London the going rate is around £100-200 per hour (although some charge more/less) and from that search it looks like it's not that far off that in Edinburgh. If you can get 5 clients per week for 1 hour as an independent you should exceed your earnings target, although remember that you should (technically) pay tax on those earnings.

If you were only going for 1 client per day, 5 days per week, your biggest issues will probably be turning too many of them away and time wasters.

3. From reading the comments from WGs on this site I think most are fine, although quite a few seem to have have hygiene issues. There are a few very real horror stories though so you should always be as careful as possible.

I'm a punter, not an escort! Accordingly, I'm seeing it from the other side.

Would you be intending to work from home, or to rent a room/flat elsewhere? If it is your own pad, are the neighbours going to comment, or otherwise make objections? If you rent, it'll cost - you need to factor that in.

Or were you intending to do "outcall" only? I suspect if so, you'll get less business?

Advertising has to cost something!

Do you have a boyfriend? If so, how will he hack it?

Security, your security, is something you need to think carefully about. If you take this road you are going to be getting alone with total strangers, most of whom, like me, are charming, and want a fluffy GFE, but a lethal few of whom are dangerous - look at the Dangerous Client postings on any Forum, like this.

Agency or Indie comes in here! A good agency will take a large amount of your fees, but it ought to provide you with some degree of filtering.

You are a student, you say. Assuming this means Undergraduate Student, do be careful to leave yourself enough study time to finish your degree, and to get a good one. Maybe you are thinking of financing yourself through Uni as an escort, then "going straight", or maybe you are thinking of making escorting a career, or more likely you haven't decided yet. A good degree, either way, will be a safety net, and if you chose to stay in the sex industry, I think you'll find that a good conversationalist who is also good in bed, can go a lot further, and command a higher price, and a girl who offers no more than a good screw!

And, as Laura says, please look at SAAFE.

A few random thoughts, which I hope help. Whichever way you go, good luck!

1 - Yes, there is demand everywhere!

2 - Are you going to do incalls or just outcalls? If outcalls only then there is less demand and you may not see someone everynight while you build your reputation and regular clients.

3 - Bad experiences do not happen often. You'll find the vast majority of your clients will be respectful and polite.

As laura said, check out www.saafe.info, read the main site and check out the buddy section on the forum.

It's true that working outcalls only (where you visit the client in his hotel or, less frequently, his home) means less business, but appointments are generally longer; 2 - 3 hours rather than 30 minutes to an hour incall.

Good point by Caitlin. Some ladies set a minimum appointment time for outcalls. If you did this, and charged slightly below average rate for it Trixy, that might help you get a bit more interest than more costly ladies offering the same service. As you'll be aware, Edinburgh has hundreds of hotels, a lot of business visitors, and goes mad during the Festival.

Another thing to think about is exactly what service you want to offer, and whether you're willing to travel out of Edinburgh for a bit more dosh. For example, Falkirk or Dunfermline might be reasonable, whereas Dundee or Stirling would be pushing it.

On the services I'd emphasise that you're a student, maybe even put it in your working name, as I think there's quite a call for it. If you're just offering GFE it's a big market you're going into. If you can offer any specialities (e.g. assisted bath, tantric massage - not a lot about in Scotland), so much the better. ('Tantric Student' and you're really in the money! LOL) If you're goiing to advertise on The Other Site then the more activities you're willing to offer that not everyone does, e.g. anal, rimming (giving or receiving), French kissing, the better for catching the eye. Not BB though. Apart from the risks to your health I think that probably puts off more punters than it attracts.

Good luck Trixy, I hope it works out for you. :o

Think of the long term pain rather than the short term gain. One day you may want to have kids and get married and do all those girly things. How will your family and siblings take to it if they every found out?

Read the www.saafe.info site read it twice and read it backwards until you know it all. It's a great sight for new starters. I recommended it to a local lady few weeks back and she can never thank me enough for it.

lots of good advice on here.

Saafe!

Possibly check the IUSW (intnl union of sex workers) as well.

I used to say: start Agency and learn the ropes first. An Agy will do the advertising and other overheads for you. But have a good look around before choosing your agent.

Then, if you fit the job, and it fits you, consider going Indie to get better margin and more control over your work.

Good point about the future: Dont show face on pictures !

I second all of the good advice offered above. As a young student in Edinburgh you will almost certainly be in high demand. Just two questions:

1. Have you thought of working in a sauna for a day or two to try out the experience of sex with strangers? You will not make as much money but that way you don't need to concern yourself with privacy, premises or neighbours. I would suggest Carol's (www.carols-sauna.co.uk) as the best one to dip your toe in the shallow end. Lots of young girls have worked there over the years and at least one is a top Edinburgh escort now (www.beckycarlyleeedinburgh.co.uk).

2. Student? Edinburgh? You're not my daughter are you???:o

I thought of maybe suggesting a sauna Toxical, good idea in principle but if Trixy only wants one punter a day that probably wouldn't go down well with the management, and a fair proportion of her earnings would go to them.

If you are going to only see one client a day be prepared for quite a few days a month when you won't see anyone. I only see two clients a day, there are cancellations, some genuine, some when I'm not so sure of howw genuine. There are also the just plain time wasting no shows, all of these can hppen when it is just too late to get a replacement booking. You may have turned down other bookings for these bookings, it can be rather annoying to say the least. I'll PM you regarding some more personal informaton.

Good points throughout this thread. I was also working through the thread thinking to suggest starting at a parlour but yes the one a day (perfectly understandable of course) wouldn't work there.

The best thing (but cannot be just conjured out of thin air) is to have a friend in the business or not long out of it to whom you can talk everything over with and possibly be given a chance to do a few appointments in a parlour almost as a two-way favour.

You may just hate it the first time you have a booking you just can't stand for any reason.

Possibly a local wg who posts here would agree to take you under her wing for a little while in some way. There's lots of things you may want to ask - or should ask - you can't really do in public here.

But I suspect one or two of the wg posters will pm you with offers of a friendly exchange of messages.

Hope it goes well, whatever you decide to do.

Doesn't SAAFE pair up newcomers to the industry (or those who have recently contacted it) with a more experienced buddy? Another good reason to contact them. Or am I mistaken?

No, you're quite right. Penny BBW operates the buddy system. :o

Sort-of-ish. Penny's Buddy Scheme has it's own site which is here, and it's well worth sending her an email so she can match you up with a lady who would be able to help you get started.

As advised (and I won't post the same link again) read right through the articles on the main SAAFE site, and bring whatever questions you have after that to the forum - there are lots of members posting with every level of experience, and you can watch me being crabby as f*ck :).

No offence to anyone posting with the best of intentions, but it's not generally a great idea to take starting advice on services from punters, who after all have something of a vested interest in the things they themselves enjoy (and I would like it if every shop sold proper fresh doughnuts :D). Decide on your boundaries, stick to them and don't let anyone tell you that you won't get any business if you don't want to do OWO, or anal, or get dressed up like a twat - you can change your mind if and when you want to but if you're not happy it will show, and nothing will put people off coming back more than thinking you don't really want to be doing the job.

Will put the SAAFE kettle on :o

Trying to see things from the escorts point of view. Obviously failed apointments due to timewasters is a big draw back to this occupation.

Have any guys ever considered male escorting ?

If so, does anybody know the best agencies that are trustworthy, provide reliable bookings and don't rip off the escort with the registration fee in the West Midlands ?

sifting out unreliable agencies, Yet, another potential hurdle for the female or male escort alike.

The main clients for male escorts are other men. Do you give a good blow job and do anal?

(Any agencies that claim they'll get you gorgeous female clients will almost certainly also demand a large "registration fee" and then get you no clients at all. Sorry.)

I think there are girls who come on here, who have established themselves in Edinburgh, perhaps one of them would agree to be your "buddy" or "tutor" so that you learn the profession and you're not lonely or afraid.

Could a guy do this job.

I tried walking down the high street looking at every woman and imagining if it were them opening the door when I turned up for their "outcall" and having to perform. It was scary and humbling.

I really don't know how the women manage it. Respect.

Going to have to take a good look at myself too.
