The rarefied environments in which these women operate give the high-class escort industry an air of respect- ability. The leading escorts often have regular jobs, not because they need them but for the variety, and are fluent in several languages. Unlike regular prostitutes they will kiss because for the money involved clients demand the full girlfriend experience.
On their websites, some review the hotels they have used and include testimonials from clients. To make the problem of choosing gifts easier for the clients some girls will list their favourite brands of clothing and perfume. Sophie, an escort working in Paris and St Petersburg who speaks five languages, says she prefers Chanel but will be equally thrilled to receive a spa voucher or champagne.
The trend for sharing their outlandish lives was started by Dr Brooke Magnanti, an academic who began writing an anonymous blog about her double life as an upmarket prostitute, using the pen name Belle du Jour.
It was reported that, above the usual favours, the cash was to cover her hotel bill, mini-bar, air and cab fares. A source involved in the investigation said at the time: Nobody knew she was a prostitute.
Now it makes sense where her Cartier watch, her Louis Vuitton bathing suit and her trips to St Tropez came from. Another trend is for the escorts to organise lucrative tours taking in some of the glitziest events on the social calendar, such as the Monaco Grand Prix. They will organise a handful of appointments in advance and combine work with pleasure.
Naturally the client also picks up the tab for first-class travel. Some of the girls routinely carry visas for countries such as India and Russia so that they can fly to a lucrative rendezvous without delay. Others offer secretarial, personal assistant and translation services as some useful extras. Some escort agencies claim to be able to offer access to supermodels who are between catwalk assignments.
There is no shortage of bright, pretty girls willing to become courtesans. If you do it wrong, you will have a couple of minutes of a blowjob followed by a few thrusts until you pop, with a jaded, disinterested woman.
The difference between the two scenarios is largely your own attitude, and how much you are willing to pay. I have been seeing prostitutes for around 4 years. I am single, professional, have had long-term relationships in the past, but am in a stage in my life where I value career and travel over settling down.
I now have a confidence with women that I lacked before, and my primary goal with women I meet is friendship first and foremost, as I have enough sex to not be desperate for it. But there are downsides.
It is easy to lose it and go all Caligula, but you soon realise that unlimited sexual indulgence is a poor substitute for real friendships. It can get expensive. You will probably find yourself unable to talk about the experiences that you are having. I have never told anybody in real life about my secret life, so have had to internalize a lot.
I think that some people are psychologically cut out for this sort of thing. Because I have short circuited the courting part of dating, I have had as much sex as a couple would over four years, but it happens to be with different women.
This feels normal to me, but I know that it freaks a lot of people out. On a whole, I would rate my experience as positive.
It is great knowing that in any given city, I can find a certain type of woman who is up for a certain type of fun. On the other hand, I am starting to think more seriously about normal long term relationships again. Had sex with a prostitute when I was in Amsterdam.
I was 19, getting antsy about cashing in my v-card so I wanted to get it done. She could tell I was nervous and was really nice about the whole thing—She even did some stuff that would have cost extra. I am 70 years old very fit and very active. My wife has been an invalid for 4 years and sex is no longer a proposition. After two years I decided to visit a lovely lady and the experience was anything but seedy.
I found her to be intelligent, articulate and of course fantastic fun. I have been only with her for 18 months now on a regular basis, we have become the closest of friends and I must say I love her with a vengeance. We are I suggest having an emotional affair. She is a married lady with married children and comes from a good family.
Her husband knows what she does for work but has chosen to look the other way. The rest of her family and her social circle have no idea what she does. Of course, her husband has no idea of my relationship with his wife or even that I exist.
I will never do anything to hurt her or her family and I am well aware that one day the relationship is likely to end.
For my part, I have made a friend for life and I look forward — like a teenager — to seeing her and to our daily telephone conversations. I am proud to call her a friend and wish we had met years ago under different circumstances. I would love to be able to introduce her to my group of friends and to my family. Financially, I will never expect to see her during her work time without contributing. When we meet outside of her work time there is no financial expectation.
I am writing this because I think it needs to be said. Yes, I am an adulterer I am cheating on my wife but I am very respectful, have found happiness with a delightful person and have no regrets.
A lot of wives want to check out of the sex department because they do not feel the need anymore and expect their husband to just jerk off once a week at the bathroom. Well, ladies, that is not how a husband became a man and stayed a man....
