This article covers the personal experiences of two women, both aged 40 and 45, that work as independent escorts in the UK's sex industry. Utilised in an essayistic style, this article is informed from a sociological point of view, theoretical studies on sexuality, stigma, authority and gender. It is presented in the form of a personal diary, using personal words and phrases to document my thoughts, feelings and emotions regarding my own experiences.
Escort agencies are an integral part of the sex industry, with most women working in one or more such agencies. These agencies cater to a wide variety of people, from women to men and both sexes in between. Escort agencies are often associated with prostitution, however, this article focuses mainly on the 'sexual industry'.
In the brothel industry, women often work independently from men, sometimes travelling from country to country, and often working in dangerous conditions. However, it is important to realise that not all women working in this industry are victims of prostitution. Many working in this field are, in fact, working within legal, ethical and moral boundaries. Many have families at home or are employed in a professional capacity, such as a teacher or businesswoman. Other women working in the brothel industry are working as housewives, as domestic workers and as personal assistants.
I am an independent escort, which means that I work for myself, from my own home. I prefer this lifestyle, because it enables me to create relationships with women of different ages and backgrounds. I enjoy sharing the company of young women and old women, which have enabled me to build a long-term friendship and relationship with some of these women.
I have worked in many different areas of brothel work. Some of my most memorable experiences were working as an independent escort in a local London nightclub. Although, on the whole, the experience was very enjoyable, I often felt uncomfortable with some of the conditions and behaviour of the male clients and in particular those that had been sexually aroused prior to being 'escorted' by me.
Some of the customers in a club were middle-aged men, whilst others were in their fifties, sixties and seventies, all of whom were highly educated and well-off. They would ask for advice, request a few drinks, take their time before asking for 'a one-on-one' and most often requested to see 'something private', which meant a private dance on a stage. Whilst this may be acceptable with an older woman, it was not acceptable for an independent escort working in the adult area.
When meeting these customers for the first time, I would always ask if they would like to take me somewhere private. I found that they often responded positively and wanted a private show, where they would perform in front of other women. Some even spoke about their experiences in the private world, with a particular preference being for a particular type of woman, or a particular sexual position.
As an independent escort, I also experienced a number of challenges, such as a man asking me to accompany him for a massage, or a female client, who wanted me to take them to her bed. However, in most instances, the requests were either declined or ignored, and often I would leave them without making contact and go back to the scene of the crime. In these cases, a discreet approach was usually required, and I would leave.
Independent escorts, both men and women, have the option of being fully independent, or working within a certain type of establishment. For example, I would often work in a nightclub or a bar, or sometimes I would work for a private owner, or even a restaurant. These types of jobs are generally much more relaxed and less stressful than the work in the more traditional adult escort industry.
Some of the more traditional independent escorts will work on a freelance basis. They often work from home and only accept clients who will pay in cash, but will always accept a check or cash-like item.
Most independent escorts prefer to work in places that cater to the sexual needs of the adult sector, such as massage parlours, bars and clubs. They may also work in the bedroom as part of a couple, as a couple only service.
