Becoming an Escort can be an exciting career pathway change. You may think of it as a glamorous pathway where you get paid a lot for doing very little. But do not be fooled, being an escort is a lot more than just being a pretty face. You will need to seriously think about your career pathway and what skills you will need to maintain the high-level of your work.
The majority of people in the UK see the escorting trade as taboo, namely because of its close association with prostitution. If you are going into this industry then you will need to be mentally prepared to be propositioned for sex. This is not a career where you will be quickly earning thousands of pounds for just a few hours work. Instead, you will need to be prepared to stick to it long term.
Once you have thought this through and are prepared for this, then there should be nothing to stop you from entering the world of escorting.
To be an escort is to be a social butterfly. You must be prepared to create an image for your clients to enjoy. Will you be a sensual escort or perhaps a girl-next-door sort of companion? Your image will influence the sort of clients who meet you, as well as where they will want to take you. Whilst the majority of them will mainly want to take you out to dinner, to a bar or a hotel room to get to know you, there may be others that may want to take you out to more unique venues or even on holidays.
You will need to know how far you would be willing to go with these dates and where you would feel comfortable meeting them. After all, you will be the one who will need to do the entertaining and will need to feel safe in the environment that has been selected. Never allow a customer to pressure you into a date where you do not feel secure. It is well within your right to say no and to leave whenever you want.
Make sure that you have brushed up on what sexual services you may have to offer as an escort. Each is listed under an acronym and will show clients how far you are willing to go. If you do not feel comfortable with providing more sexualised experiences, then you may want to consider solely advertising yourself as a girlfriend experience, or making it explicit on your profile that you solely are there to meet up for dates. Not every date needs to end in a sexual encounter, as some clients genuinely just want to meet with a beautiful woman. Indulge them and you will find that the date goes very smoothly.
If you are to be an escort, then you need to ensure that you have everything you need to look like one. This may mean that you need to invest in a lot of sexy underwear, costumes and toys. Remember that each of your clients will be unique. This means that they will each have different sexual habits and will expect your image to suit their needs and desires. There is no shame in indulging in lingerie that makes you feel good. However, consider what will look best on your body. Leather will show that you are ready to indulge in a BDSM or dominatrix relationship, but do you have accessories (i.e. handcuffs, whips and toys) to go along with it? Always consider what you will need before you receive your booking. That way you can always feel ready and prepared for your clients.
Once you have decided on what services you will offer and your image, you need to consider who will represent you and how?
If you want to go it alone, then you will be an independent escort, locating bookings on your own and using a website to market yourself. Word of mouth is very important if you become an independent escort. So if you manage to snag one client, and you do well, then you can be sure he will pass along his recommendations to his friends.
If you are interested in receiving more exposure, which is useful for when you first start out, you may want to consider putting your name under an agency. There are a lot of online agencies who would be happy to advertise you online, as well as assist you with the booking process. However, keep in mind that if you do work alongside an agency, they will also take a cut of your profits.
