Is this "agency" set up legal?
« on: 10 July 2020, 01:39:20 am »
I want to start escorting and my fiance is fully om-board.

Yet, here's the thing : I just want to have sex and get paid for it.

My fiance is an ex web developer, so it makes sense for him to tale care of that side of things.

If he is not pushing me at all (e.g. pimping me out), is there a legal way for us to do this? Can I employ him as my secretary, or something like that?

Sorry if these are naive questions. It's my first time here.

Doing basically nothing except what you perceive as the 'fun' part (and you're likely in for a shock there) and watching the £££££ rain down isn't how self employment works, sadly.

Nothing in your post refers to any 'agency set up', though - from the above it just sounds as if you want your partner to build you a website, and there's nothing illegal about that? It does also sound as if he wants to be involved to a degree most of us (and certainly most punters if he's going to be answering your phone and therefore having access to their contact details - it will be extremely offputting to some, and probably the majority) would consider inappropriate. This includes the fact that he's registered your account for you here and is apparently writing your posts for you, too.

Pimping would mean he was both controlling prostitution (including taking bookings and then telling you about them) and being paid a cut or gaining in some other way from each booking. If you just want to 'have sex and get paid for it' without taking any responsibility for your business, why not try parlour/brothel work, since independent sex work means far more work that a venue (with invaluable experience and industry knowledge that you don't have) will do for you? Why do you think it's OK for a partner to have the means to control somebody's livelihood when they can't contribute anything you can't easily do yourself - ask yourself why he thinks he has any right to be involved in your prostitution beyond knocking a website together if you don't want to organise one? Doesn't he have to work too?

In the event that this is a genuine query, you need to register your own account - SAAFE is sex worker only. We suggest you use an email your partner doesn't know about or have access to. We're sex worker support, not Pimping 101.

Well, that's a strangely presumptuous reply!

My fiance does not think he has any right to control my livelihood. It's my idea to get him involved. He does web stuff for a living, so it makes sense.

And, no, I don't think I will set-up an email address he knows nothing about. That's a strange suggestion considering I'm about to marry the guy.

Why would this not be a genuine query? Nevertheless, thanks, I guess.

Of course it makes perfect sense! 'Web stuff', prostitution, that whole connection there...

 ;D

If you're not bothered about your privacy and that of your clients, that's up to you. But you won't be posting again from this account while the current email address is connected to it. This is a peer support site, and in the event you do want advice and support from people who actually know what they're talking about (and might also want to help off the board via the messgaing system) they are not going to be sending PMs to some bloke's email address.

And no. Beyond making a website (and you can knock an AW profile together in ten minutes if you want to give whoring a go), there is no sensible reason at all for your partner to be involved. He has no industry knowledge or experience, he won't be doing any of the actual work or taking any of the risks and unlike you should you go ahead, none of that is ever going to change.

just no for many reasons. You obviously have doubts hence asking the question
