I just wouldn't work for an agency again. I also think agencies are a dying breed, because alot of people prefer going to independents now.

This was about to be my post made!
I worked for an agency, and with that i ended up homeless, cocaine addict and when my 'boss' told me he would take care of me, he took complete advantage of me in my hardest times! I was young and vulnerable, agencies are the worst place for women like that i do believe!

Independant is hard to get used to i thought, coming from an agency i still had a lot of bad habits but working for myself has completely changed my life, attitude and personality!
Independants know what THEY want to do, at an agency you loose the choice to choose your clientelle. your working hours, and how much you charge.

I personally would be more than happy to offer any advice to anyone having been in the industry 5years, and having hit rock bottom and worked my way back up, i would be happy to help anyone who needs advice on this! PM me if you need any advice etc.

I can only talk about one agency that I know the ins and outs of, and it is in Edinburgh - the ones in London may be different.

At this agency, yes you really have to go to whoever they send you to.  You wouldn't be able to refuse because he's Asian.  When a guy books they take his name and address or name and hotel room number.  And a mobile number - they don't ask for landlines.  No, this agency doesn't vet clients....they say they do, but they don't and the amount of jobs that are wind ups or don't answer the door, or just want a look are massive.  They do have a driver, so you do have someone with you sometimes, but not always.  You are also (and I think this is the case with most agencies) 'on call', so if you say you're working Saturday, that means if she phones with a job for you on Sunday morning at 3am, you will be expected to be ready and with the guy within half an hour, so really you either have to sleep with your make up on and just doze in the chair, or stay up.  You can't really go to bed.  If you miss a job because you're sleeping, you won't get any more jobs for a while in retaliation, that usually lasts 7-10 days, but if someone specifically wants you she might lift the ban quicker.  This particular agency also checks viva st and adultwork looking for girls who work for her. 

Funny when you think that they agency actually works for you, isn't it?

This is just one agency though, but I can only speak about the one that I know.  I'm sure there are good ones out there.

I had a very similar experience with an agency. Obsessive controlling behaviour, paranoia, liked they owned you. It was like being stuck in a prison that you weren’t able to leave until you were “allowed” to go home.
When a couple of us finally got the courage to leave we experienced constant harassment for several months, unknown numbers blocking our phones, calls to the police, attempts to hack out AW accounts or get them pulled down and the final straw were text messages threatening to out us to friends and family on social media.  In the end I was so exhausted (and scared to be honest) that I responded by saying I was going to the police as it was now blackmail. It pretty much slowed down from that point.  It was a horrific experience and these were women who were running the agency. Women threatening other women no better than pimps.

I have not in over 20 years of escorting been with and nor would I ever go with a agency.

They control, manipulate and destroy  :'(

Wouldn't you think that agencies run by ex working girls would understand everything there is to know, and offer help especially to a girl who has never done this before.

Look at the beauty industry and how salons treat their staff. It's the same.

Look after you staff and they will stay loyal and the trust is built up.  Treat your staff like shit and they will leave.

I had personal bad experiences with agencies because I don't have the qualities they wanted. That is, easily manipulated, able to tolerate smelly/rude/very demanding clients, and able to work at odd hours  ::)

The agenda of the agency is to make as much money as possible. When the push comes to shove, they would choose money above the girl's comfort/even safety. From my experience, it has been this way -I was sent to bad clients who paid well.
Anyone reading this must decide if the money is worth it.

It used to be that agencies had all the best clients and introduced girls to them. The little black book of Johns - glamorous ideas of what an agency should be. No doubt, there are still some rare agencies worth joining. Nowadays, anyone can have a website and set up an agency. They may be clueless, or bad people, it doesn't matter. Why would any girl want to work with them if they're that dumb and careless.

Much easier now to be independent with the social media and self advertising. And the money made through an agency is not even that good...compared to clever indie advertising.

 There’s not a lot of nice people that make money from us, they’re not nice at all and they treat you like shit.

I have worked in parlours and agencies and I have since found out that a parlour I worked in had trafficked girls back in the day (not anymore) there from all over Eastern Europe and Thailand, if I had known this I never would have worked for them.

I could never take money from a hooker knowing how she got that money, it’s wrong and thankfully illegal.

Greedy fuckers is what they are, the parlour I worked in used to charge you £50 for a missed shift and this is regardless of you being unwell, if you showed a doctors line then this would stop the fine, ffs your self employed and they’re calling the shots in more ways than one.

That parlour also hated the girls getting friendly with each other and infact she stipulated that the reception staff weren’t allowed to socialise with the girls outside of work!! Can you fucking believe the cheek of this?! Telling grown women who to be friends with, this is the power they tried to wield over us.

God that manager was a nasty bitch and was so fake with her concern over us, this was after they got raided right enough.

Agencies that look after their girls aren’t as busy as the ones that put the clients first, says a lot about the men that use them and none of them good.

Very inhumane. Lots of shady things like this still going on at some parlours.
Yes, bad client behaviour is overlooked by agencies. I have the feeling some clients go to agencies when they fail the screening by indies

I'd get random calls from Thai pimps offered girls as you would a puppy. Maybe this is how they're provided for agencies and parlours?

Yeah like I'll let the human guineapigs have first dibbs at eating the food that's been sitting in those restaurant freezers for the past 4 months.

Sad, and not surprising.
Why would any agency/parlour accept girls who are coerced to work/have a pimp to apply for work on their behalf. Unless they are complicit
