So, following on from some recent threads:

I was at university before tuition fees. And I'm a bloke. But if I was a girl at university now, and I looked the part, I'd think seriously about escorting. Of course, it's easy for a guy to say. Still: what would your attitude have been, if you were in that position. And ladies: were you in a situation where you could have escorted but didn't?

I hope this poll thingy works...

When I was a postgraduate student at the University of Melchester (name changed) a female friend of mine, who had done some photo shoots for Mayfair and some amateur dominatrix work, surprised the academics at her interview panel for admission to the same postgraduate programme by answering the question, 'And how will you support yourself in Melchester during the course of your studies?' with the forthright answer, 'Well, I assume there's a sex industry in Melchester'. A few jaws, I believe, very visibly dropped!

Voted. Never even dreamed of escorting as an undergrad, and had I known, I couldn't have as the place was far too small. Kept on bumping into people all the time, then having to hide in various supermarket aisles as we all shopped in the same Sainsbury's.

Postgrad, I was a puntee. Cue me turning up late for supervisions looking a bit abstracted and hurried, wearing fishnets and knee-high boots. Once, left my portable ashtray out after searching for a relevant book thing, and the lecturer was staring at it.

"It's an ashtray".

"Ah! Thought it was a condom carrier, haha".

But he was gay, and expected us young things to be utter sluts. Had no clue about my extra-curricular activities. Encouraged the younger men in the group to have gel-saddles on their bikes to save them from impotence.

Is this about Eve from Bunnies, the law student? Agency days, there were a few students on the books of the last agency I worked at, everything from undergrad to PhD level. It's the "hairdresser" style, pop in, pop out of the industry and part-time of course, as far as I'm aware these girls were only temporary, not "lifers".

Education is expensive, especially law - so much money needs to be spent for vocationally useless qualifications before you can start earning in the civilian life. But, being an escort beats flipping burgers.

In my first year I worked weekends in a parlour which was good as I could spend all week concentrating on my studies and only have have 2 days working. 2nd year I went indie which was more hassle because it took up more of my time. This year I've been on placement so am getting a full wage, but I still see a few clients. I have one more year to go and I plan to work through it.

Having spoken to a couple of dominatrices about the sort of work they do (one who I know socially, another who is an escort who also tops), I'd definitely have done that if I was a woman.

They both said it was great job, with few of the downsides of 'regular' sex work - you're not expected to have sex with the punters (unless you really want to), and they are have a high proportion of regulars. I think the drawback is you genuinely have to enjoy being a Domme though, otherwise it could get very wearing watching some guy kiss your shoes whilst wearing a nappy for an hour, even if he was paying you for the privilege.

Yes, but please give us the punch line!

Was she successful? Was she admitted to the same postgraduate programme?

(and did she, er, support herself?)

I didn't have the knowledge, confidence etc and for the first couple of years I was a dedicated athlete - that was my passion and I wouldn't let anything interfere with my training & study time.

If I'd been older and wiser I possibly would have given it a go. As it was I went at a time were the grant they gave me - even as a 'mature' student was peanuts, no fees since my income was low but did use my savings as well as student loans plus overdraft to support myself. They'd gone by graduation and eventually went into a bankruptcy whey I couldn't obtain well paid, steady work - and I still didn't know/didn't have the confidence to go into this line of work.

Years of being told by bullies that I was unattractive whilst growing up, took a LONG time to wear off believe me!

I think there are 3 reasons why a girl wouldn't want to be an escort, and I believe the third reason is by far the biggest. 1. Don't want to be with unattractive punters, or don't have the sexual appetite, 2. Concerned about the dangers involved, 3. Social stigma puts them off.

The social stigma causes many girls who would probably be very good at escorting and who would quite enjoy it, to not even consider it. I believe if we lived in a society in which you could sit at a polite dinner party, be asked the question, 'how did you pay your way through uni?', and answer that you worked as a prostitute, and no-one batted an eyelid, then you would have many, many more girls considering escorting. And surely you'd have a much healthier society as well, if people lived under the simple credo of live and let live.

I wouldn't have known where to start and I never realised that ladies like me DID escort! I was also in a relationship that simply wouldn't have made it possible for me to do so. I wish I had though!! I worked my socks off in various jobs none of which were half as much fun!

Well with out wanting to sound to grumpy: I had two jobs for three years through Uni. An still managed to get reasonable grades etc.

However, that was some time ago. I really feel this country is a joke educationally. I do believe that education is for all - however those that can pay should pay.

Also we should get rid of media studies, contour design (making pants (gud if you can get it)) etc etc. Just use those courses for the overseas students who would like to pay for them. Whilst we stick to the more academic, or even vocational courses. Rather than courses designed to avoid work for three years before travelling.

Bah bloody humbug.

If the government puts its reform of tuition fees through, then your wishes may be granted.

Acting the devil's advocate here but who can honestly say that they could ever forsee being at a dinner party where a father would proudly announce that his daughter had the drive,smarts and looks to put herself thru college by wigging ? What percentage of father's ( punters ) here would countenance that ??

May be just a case that my daughters are different to most but I could definitely say the thought of dirty, smelly old men pawing them and slobbering about them whilst they are in late teens, and by old, I mean 30+, never mind the thought of a 50+ man, would be a far bigger hurdle than even getting to thinking about the social stigma hurdle.

No parent ever wants to think of their child in sexual terms, any more than I would like to think of my parents

in sexual terms. ( Bleurgh :D ).

The post I was agreeing with was whether it would ever become socially acceptable for a woman to reply to a query

as to how she funded her education with the response, "Actually I was / am an escort". :)

Dunno about proudly announcing but it would be hypocritical of me to say I would have objected to my daughter (who graduated this year) supporting herself in this way when I have punted with and taken lapdances from quite a few student ladies in the time she and her older brothers have been at uni. On the whole though, if asked I'd have advised her to take up lapdancing, mainly on safety grounds.

If escorting/lap dancing is something she wants to do as she enters adulthood, as long as none of my work colleagues or our family found out then i wouldnt mind her doing it. Most people are either disscusted or belittle anyone who does it as if its something to be ashamed of which i dont agree with.

If she turns out to have a high sex drive id rather her be dancing naked in a club and escorting for all the sex she wants. The money she can earn in one night compared to working an entire month in any other job at student age? I was only on £150/week when i was 18 as an apprentice electrician, she can get that in an hour as an escort.

Id just try to advise her to always be safe ie be on birth control as well as always carry condoms 24/7.

If so fair play to him! lol

Id love to be a (real, chromosomes and all that) good looking girl. Just think of all the sex and especially the money you can get, an escort girl can save and pay for a £200k house in no time. If you take pride in your appearance and are an exhibitionist who loves nothing more than having fun with and making men lust over you then you get a job as a full time professional lap dancer, part-time escort. No need for university if youre mostly sensible with your money - buy an house rent it out and so on. Retirement easily at the age of 40.

As it is us men who arnt very socially out going and arnt very rich have to plod on in life, doing the same boring job day in day out even if you get a new job its the same after a while, paying a mortgage for 20+ years. Meeting WG's who earns in an hour what you get in a day or 2.

it would never have occurred to me to escort my way through uni!

Some of the comments on this thread crease me up though - like how escorts can easily buy £200k houses! I WISH!

Its true though, last year I met a German lady working at a FKK club, formerly a nurse, whose plan was to work in the industry for 5 years and walk away with €1M in cash.

Like any career, success is built on ability, education, commitment, people-skills, and a little bit of luck.
