If you’re playing with the thought of earning your future income by working as an escort, you have to decide whether you would prefer to collaborate with an escort agency or if you want to work as a self-employed independent hostess. Both approaches have advantages and disadvantages, which should be considered.
In order to answer this question appropriately, your current personal situation is especially important: To work as part-time escort, for example while studying, it is best to stick to an established agency that will take care of everything for you.
Those looking for a full-time career may dare the jump into independence. But without the marketing of an agency there will of course be some spending involved especially in terms of advertising. The benefit of being an independent escort is undoubtedly the lack of agency commissions.
The question that is always asked all women before they make such a decision is the question of security. After all, you will be encountering unknown men and enter more or less intimate situations with them.
Agency models have it easier, because the agency covers the vetting of the clients. Even for clients that register with a pseudonym, agencies have their way of separating the wheat from the chaff. However, I don’t want to divulge more about this at this point for confidentiality reasons.
Those who work freelance as escort ladies, have to take care of security questions. It is crucial to have a contact person that knows where you are going and when approximately you will be back.
And how does it look in terms of income?
An escort model’s income often can’t be translated easily into monetary terms, because it depends on the overall number of dates. But next to a pretty good hourly wage, there are also great restaurants, stays at luxurious hotels and sometimes even luxury holidays which are part of the experience. In other words, this is a lifestyle that’s quite distinct from your everyday routine.
The minimum duration of a date is 2 hours, but often it’s an entire night. If you’re not booked directly for a luxury holiday, you normally make it back home the next day.
Most high-class escorts that are listed with agencies go on their dates whilst maintaining their regular lives as students or workers. There are several additional costs for both agency models as well as independent ladies, such as taxes, insurance, etc., as they are self-employed.
Independent escorts have to take care of their own advertising, which can be rather cumbersome and expensive in the beginning. Listings, website, blogs and ads need to be maintained and updated on a regular basis. Those who opt for the security provided by a serious agency, automatically have access to their marketing facilities. Advertising is covered by the agency, and those who look into the subject of search engine optimisation (SEO) will know how time and cost intensive that can be.
If you want to work as an independent escort, you will definitely have to invest more time, because answering emails and preparing meetings don’t take care of themselves. An assisting service can take care of organisation, all preparations, possibly even bookings and all you have left to do is to make yourself pretty for the date.
One of the most important criteria is confidentiality. For your own protection, as well as for the protection of the client, discrete behaviour is absolutely crucial, because that is the only way for you to build trust which is so important in this industry. This is also an important reason why customers, as well as escort ladies, prefer to work with a mediator, such as an escort agency.
No matter which option you choose, the new prostitution protection law will certainly apply to you.
