Escorting is one of the oldest profession’s in the world. There have been escorts in the world since the time of Caesar and possibly even before that! Their profession is based upon certain skills that are passed down among the girls that choose to earn a living as an escort.
All over the world you can find escorts of all shapes, sizes, and legal ages. However, escorting is usually a part time affair for most of the girls involved. It pays really well but it does come with a lot of newer competition and also other detrimental factors. Let’s take a look at some of those factors that –
- Age – Age is a very big factor in the business of escorting as it is indirectly proportional to the number of clients an escort can get. Although there is no age limit to be an escort and you can find escorts in every age group, the most successful and generally busy are the escorts who are in the younger age group. A select few men out there want to spend time with someone older but the majority of them want someone who is their age or younger.
- Temporary job – Most of the girls that choose escorting as a profession are in it only temporarily. Almost none of them aim to be working as escorts for very long. Most of the time, young girls that are studying in university or somewhere else work as escorts on the side to pay off their huge student loans and debts. Sometimes even young and older housewives take up the job to supplement their household’s income. Escorting is a very convenient temporary job for girls and women to have.
- Personal aspirations – Most of the times, the girls that work as escorts also have some personal ambitions of their own to fulfil for which they require money that escorting will provide. So they become escorts for a while and save up on the much needed cash. Afterwards when they have finally saved up as much as they had wanted, they leave to pursue their ambitions and goals in life.
- Starting their own families – Almost all the women and girls that work as escorts, stop working once they have children and their own family. Let’s face it, escorting is a job that is very misunderstanding. That coupled with the inherent misogyny in the world makes life very difficult sometimes for girls and women working as escorts. To shield their families from the stigma, the girls stop working as escorts. Also, if they have saved up, then they stop working because they can.
- Competition – This is one of the main reasons why most women and girls quit the business if they don’t have enough regular clients. Escorting is a business that has extreme competition. Every year there are thousands of women that turn to escorting for their own personal reasons. These women are younger, smarter and more attractive as a result to the clients. This is why escorts have a short shelf life. There’s always somebody new to challenge them and win the affections of clients.
- Health – There are myriad health issues that come with being an escort. If an escort is not careful about whom she chooses to keep on as a client, then she risks contracted STDs. Apart from that, there is also the physical toll that is exacted on the body after working for some years as an escort. Therefore, an escort always needs to look after her own health and make sure to exercise frequently. If not, then her career won’t be a long one and she won’t survive in the business.
- Lack of regular clients – The main bread and butter of any escort are their regular clients. By regular we don’t mean forever but regular for a substantial amount of time. Most escorts have regular clients. The ones that have the most regular ones are always the ones with the most successful careers. It takes a lot to maintain a regular client and not all escorts are able to. Regular clients not only pay the usual rates but also look out for the ladies. They buy gifts and other items for the escorts on top of the service rate! The girls that do not have regular clients have to wait for them or else they won’t be able to survive in the business for long.
- Bad experiences – Escorting is a weird and tough job. The girls need to meet with random men (mostly at the men’s houses) and get intimate with them after a few brief conversations. That is why the escorts are always cautious and careful when they are working. However, sometimes there are bad experiences which result in the girls searching for other jobs. Maybe the guy was rude to them or simply was unhygienic, it could be ‘n’ number of things that could make a girls or woman walk away from the business of escorting forever. All it takes is one bad experience and off they go.
The above mentioned pointers are some of the reasons why an escort’s career is usually short. Most of the times, an escort has a short career by choice. As you can see, most of the things on the list have to do with the escort’s choice more than anything else.
However, as they say, there are always exceptions to a rule. Even though usually the careers of escorts are short, there are still those escorts with unusually long careers. Sometimes it’s because they have regular clients that are great and other times it is because they offer a specific service in relation to their age.
In any case, the business of escorting largely depends upon people’s desires; both hidden and those that have always been out in the open. But the most important desire is that of the escort and whether she wishes to continue or no. The moment she doesn’t, she can stop working as an escort and be answerable to no one.
