Dangers of Becoming an Escort
For those who have considered or are considering becoming an escort, the profession looks attractive based on the rates that escorts charge. It is true that this kind of work can allow you to earn larger sums of cash in a much shorter period than many conventional jobs. Like most things in life, such a high chance of reward is not without a corresponding high risk. Before you make the decision to provide escort services, check out this subset of dangers of becoming an escort.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)/Pregnancy
Escort work is not necessarily sex work. In fact, there are escorts who do not provide sexual services. However, most of them do and as such, are exposed to all the risks that come along with engaging in sexual intercourse. Even if you only provide sexual services with protection, you should be aware that abstinence from sex is truly the only fool proof way of avoiding risks. Such risks include STDs and pregnancy. If you are using a condom, it can end up torn and all it takes is one time. In the context of STDs, you will never know your clients’ sexual history and so you take this chance every time.
You could be harmed/killed
As you know, not everyone is who they say they are and not everyone has the intentions they claim to have. If you do incall services, you risk inviting someone with malicious intent into your home. This person could even travel with several other persons with the intent to rob, rape, or even kill you. Outcall services are even riskier as you are travelling out of your comfort zone into a place you may not know to someone whose true intentions you can only guess. Escorts have been robbed and abused and it’s important that you try to be as vigilant as possible of your surroundings.
You may no longer be accepted
Not every escort tells the people in their lives what they do for a living, however, escort accounts have revealed that the people who matter to them the most are fully aware. This is a sensitive issue such as revealing homosexuality (coming out) and you will never know what the reaction of those you love will be until it happens. It is just as likely that you will be rejected as it is that you will be embraced.
You probably cannot maintain a healthy relationship
Some escorts mitigate this by not telling their significant other what they do for a living. This approach is already indicating that the relationship is unhealthy as there is a huge secret being kept. When your job is to provide companionship and comfort (sometimes in a sexual manner) to strangers, it’s a huge pill to swallow for someone who is interested in you. There is also the fact that, depending on the type of person you are, certain repetitive experiences during your work may lead you to become desensitized to certain gestures, love making techniques, etc., that you significant other may employ in your relationship.
Being an escort pays when it is going well, however, you need to understand that it is a line of work that can turn your life upside down in an instant.
Do’s and Don’ts of Dealing with Escorts
Accounts from escorts reveal some interesting stories about experiences with various clients. While some clients are a dream to deal with, there are others that simply need to get a clue. As we would prefer if you not end up being the latter, take note of these do’s and don’ts of dealing with escorts.
- Don’t try to get her to give unprotected services if it wasn’t agreed on. This is just as much about respect as it is about integrity. Stick to what you agreed on. If you ask for bare intercourse or fellatio when that’s not what was discussed, the escort will most likely end the session and you will receive no refund. Establish what you need during discussion, pay for what you agree to, and stick to it.
- Be courteous and respectful. Interact with your escort as a person and not as a thing you bought. Speak well, display good body language and stick to the payment terms that were discussed. In most cases, you will be required to pay in advance. If you are, respect that requirement and do so.
- Abide by the principles of discretion and anonymity. The escort practice is a sensitive one. Maintaining privacy is as much her role as it is yours. There is no need to put your escort on blast or refer to your escort as his/her work name if you are meeting at a hotel.
- Practice proper hygiene. This does not only apply if you plan to have sex with the escort. It is courteous and respectful to practice proper hygiene when you plan to spend time around them. As a matter of fact, you shouldn’t need an incentive to do so.
- Do not be judgmental and talk down to your escort. Strippers, prostitutes and escorts tend to be looked down upon because their line of work involves sexually oriented services. You need to understand that not only is your escort a human being like you are, but he/she may even be more educated than you are. There is no need for you to be a pig.
- Don’t brush your teeth or floss right before your encounter if anything sexual is involved. Remember the point about practicing hygiene without an incentive? You should always brush your teeth and floss, so it doesn’t have to be done as a matter of emergency for your appointment. The issue with doing close to sexual intercourse is that you run the risk of exposure to STIs through torn coating of the mouth.
- Try to develop a loving relationship with an escort. Though the escort is paid to make you comfortable through the creation of a pseudo-relationship, do not mistake the escort’s attitude and try to make it something real. After the agreed time has elapsed, you both have lives to return to. Don’t make it awkward by trying to attach strings.
Now that you know all this, you should have a much easier time having amicable dealings with escorts.
How to find Reputable Escorts
If you are intending to make use of escort services, one of the first things you must do is find an escort. A suitable escort is more than one who simply indicates she’s willing to do all you need. It is also important that your escort is reputable. Let’s look at how to find and identify reputable escorts.
The best place to start your search is on escort sites as this is where the best escort listings reside. Some of the most advisable sites for this are:
Finding a good website is only part of the battle as these sites, while known for being reputable, are not exempt from catfishes and scams. If your attraction level is sparked by physical appearance, then you quite likely will find an attractive looking escort in mere minutes that offers all the services you desire. There are a few warning signs which, while not always the case, are red flags that indicate that something is awry. We would advise that you stay away whenever you see these signs just to be on the safe side. Some of these are:
- Listing in multiple cities – Logically, a person can only be in one place at a time. If an escort has listings for multiple cities, especially those that are far from each other, chances are this is a scam and you should pass on this escort.
- Image search hits – Using random pictures is another sign that the escort is a scammer. Images online can be searched by right clicking on the image and selecting “Search image on Google” (this may require certain browsers to do). The search reveals all the places where the search engine has detected the image. Usually if an image is getting multiple hits that are not related to the same person, then a scam is the reason.
- Studio pictures – This one sort of follows from the point before. The point of posting a picture is for potential clients to be shown what to visually expect from the escort they are considering. This is akin to a profile photo on a social network which are not usually given all the polish that a those of a model may have. The studio quality images can be a warning sign and we would advise applying the same search technique listed above.
Agency Use and Background checks
You should also consider making use of agencies. Reputable agencies usually have an array of escorts and help in the selection process by appealing to your tastes. While using agencies is generally safer than using independent escorts, it is usually a costlier decision as the cost must allow profit for both the agencies and their escorts.
Finally, you may want to consider making use of your trusty search engine once again to gain some background insights into your escort. If your escort has been in the business for any acceptable period to become reputable, chances are you can find info such as reviews by checking out her work name.
Remember that this is simply the step of choosing an escort, exercise caution and stay alert when meeting the escort as well.
