Title: How long have you been working?
Post by: martine21 on 05 January 2017, 08:13:16 pm
As the title says really.

Curious to see whos made a career out of escorting and if you have do you have any regrets? Have you always enjoyed it? Have you burnt out over the years?

I've been doing this 3.5 years now, I have time's where i hate it, time's when i love it. However I can't see myself ever truely stopping. I've had breaks but always come back to it. I'm totally addicted the money!

This is my first year.

Honestly I wish I'd discovered this sooner. There are a very few bookings where I feel like I'm phoning it in, but for most of them I feel I'm giving a genuine service, and I'm proud of giving a good experience which means I'll get repeat business.

Coming up to 2.5 years, after 25 years of being an office-based professional. I did escorting alone for the first 5-6 months and now do it part-time in conjunction with another home-based freelance job. By and large, enjoy it.

On and off since I was 17/18 I used to work parlours but I've been independant since August 15. I went back to work after a break when I had my kids. Going independent was the best thing I ever did. I love work. It has it's sour moments and we all get fed up, there's been some days I've suprised myself by not murdering a client. I've learned alot this last year too. I could never stop x

Started in 1993 worked very part time with very long periods out until 2000 then went straight (with a few long term regs). Intending to return within 3 months and do it as my sole/main income. Wish I knew then what I know now (I would never have gone straight).

Post by: BlaqHarlot on 15 January 2017, 01:51:22 am
I'm 23 and have been working since 2012. Five years this April. I started at 18. I absolutely love this job and the independence it gives me, I also have my own business which is my passion but is hard work, so this is my way of kind of getting my fun! In my personal life I prefer the older man naturally but being my age you don't really come across much older men where I go out or socialise, so this is great!

I absolutely adore my regulars and look forward to our bookings! :D
Title: Re: How long have you been working?
Post by: Hotblondie on 15 January 2017, 09:12:29 am
7 years, but I am very low volume now, seeing mostly 3-4 regulars per month in my days off.
I`m not burned out, I just wanted a change and to be able to rent easily (having payslips helps a lot) and took a full time job who is keeping me fit and pays my bills :)
Probably I will carry on like this for a  long time :)
Title: Re: How long have you been working?
Post by: TrashAzn on 16 January 2017, 05:58:15 pm
1 year and 4 months give or take a week, I honestly wish I'd started this a year earlier. There are good and bad days sometimes my body aches and I'm sore but I genuinely enjoy entertaining my clients and the money is amazing, I'm living in my own apartment and it's a really nice place I'd never be able to afford that with what I was making in a civvie job and I've been able to treat myself to other stuff too. I don't know if I'll do this longer than a couple of years will see what happens I'm also a freelance graphic designer and illustrator  and would like to make a living from that kinda thing eventually but it's tough.

I guess it's nice to know that if getting a civvie job and trying to make another career doesn't work out I can fall back on the skills I've learned as a sex worker. I've even learned stuff from it like about web design and marketing.

Too long! My first client was 1996 when I was dancing, break for pregnancy then back when she was 6 months old. Plan to retire in next 2/3 years but probably won't, kids get more expensive as they get older.

I love my job and don't have any immediate plans to quit, but I have started thinking about how sustainable this job is / what is the working lifespan of an escort. Ie, when will I have to start making other job plans.

So, how old are you and how long have you been escorting?

I'm 29 and have been doing the job for 3 years. You?

Hi ladies,
I have almost 8 years, but I do this work for a month or two months of work,
 then a month or 2 or 3 weeks of rest when I return to Italy, when I'm there I clean up as a job,
 in Italy I have a normal life, my son and many friends,

 but I sincerely enjoy and I like my scort work a lot ...
 because I spend a lot of time alone,
 I make many of things when I'm not busy with clients,
 most of the time I enjoy sex,
 instead in italy I never do sex, I do not need ...
 it's very funny, I do not even understand it lol ;D

For me its been properly full time for around 15 months now (although I have dipped my toe in and out for the past 3 years) For sure, for me this is a short term plan to help me achieve my long term goals. I have a lot of respect for WG who have done this for years and years. I cant see myself doing that, even though the money is addictive  ;) but I know I would proper burnout and not give a great service. Another year or so for me and then crack on with my long term goals but this is the kind of work I would return to when needed. Well done all you wonderful ladies and even guys. Wish you all well and bring on another good week. Stay safe xxx

Post by: rinaxeee on 22 April 2018, 03:23:27 am
It's been like 10 years now. I was popular for first couple of years but now business is slow. But I am okay with it and easier to manage my overall life with less volume of clients.

I can't seem to stop it because I don't see any reason why. Doing this for a decade now this is well settled my way of life. Looking back my past years it does seem like very long time especially when I see the girls leaving the industry only in few years even when they are very popular ones. I look back at my age and looks, not the youngest but I am still in early 30's and think for 10 more years I can be active without being too out of line.

I did try quitting but soon enough I had calling for my libido and one night stands were far more of hassle and complication compare to escorting. After 6 months I was back on the escorting.

I celebrated 9 years this month ( It was Easter Sunday 2009 ) and I was 40..
The only thing that makes me feel burned-out and frazzled sometimes is dealing with callers and the timewasters, as I am relatively low-volume.

I started out 21 years ago….
Then 9 years later ‘retired’ had a relationship, got a vanilla job and plodded along for 6 years.
Relationship ended, I ended up hating my job so decided to come back, admittedly with a different name..but it’s now been nearly 6 years back in the biz and I’m loving it!
I love being self employed, the chance to work when it suits me, being able to be a doting grandmother and pick up my grandson from school, being able to have a day off when I want to…
And being an escort enables me to enjoy sex and the company of gents without the ties of a relationship.
Perfect…for me  ;D

No I am not you  ;D  but wish I had done what you did! Stripping! It was always my fantasy to get up on stage and give 'em what for after watching many a live show when I was much younger. One of my regrets that I didn't give it a go.  :P

12 years in total - started escorting in July of 2010, camming from January/February 2011 - Had a few breaks in between for 6 - 12 months but always come back to it, even when I went back to full civvy life

8 years, full time.
I love it. Much more fulfilling in every way than my previous professional career and have made some lovely friends in the industry.

I started at 30. That's 7 years ago. I first had this idea when I travelled Oz for a year, did nude modelling and read Belle de Jour. I loved the thought of the freedom it would give even then.

Stupidly, I got into the most abusive toxic relationship instead. Then when I finally plucked up the courage to leave, I bought a house solely with the purpose of working from it and have never looked back  ;D

Although I am low volume - I have to be with living where I work - I am available pretty much every day and only take time off to see friends and do other hobbies, one of which is quite costly.

I love the freedom and being able to make money from men who are nice to me  :)
