How to Become an Escort in the UK
Being an escort is not considered as a taboo by the majority of people in the UK. It is a legitimate business that many women make a career out of. If you are enamored by the kind of money escorts make, and if you want to become one, here are a few things you should know, consider and do.
What are you getting into it for?
This is a really important question that will decide how you will perform in your role as an escort. Many think that becoming an escort is the quickest way to make big money. Some come into the business hoping to meet people from around the world and enjoy their time with them. Everybody involved in or getting into escort services knows that sex is a big part of her work. This should be absolutely clear in your mind.
Are you really ready for it?
You also should ask yourself whether you are ready to commit to becoming an escort. Like every other legitimate business, you need to be in the industry for some time to start seeing the kind of money that you dream of when you begin. It means that you need to be committed for the long term. This is not mandatory of course, but you still want to be sure about starting out as an escort.
Many believe that an escort is just a glamorized version of a prostitute, but it is far from where the truth actually lies. The client base for an escort is completely different than that for a prostitute. It is true that you may be able to meet clients from all over the world. You may be able to travel with them to high profile parties, where you meet many more people from various backgrounds.
However, you need to be comfortable with having sex with your clients, because it is unofficially accepted that they are paying you in part for it. If you are not ready to provide sexual services as well, your career as an escort will be very limited because there are clients who just want your company for a brief period of time. If your answer is in the affirmative, then you can confidently go ahead with your decision.
One of the advantages of becoming an escort is that after a while, you can choose your working times. You can put forward your terms and you accept only those clients that need services within your chosen time frame and service scope. Many escorts work part time in addition to their regular work. They earn a lot of money this way, which is why you see so many escorts who are flush with money.
However, if you are flexible with your timings, it only works in your favor, because you will have a greater number of potential clients and will mostly be assured an appointment. However, the important point to consider here is that you always have a choice in this business. You decide how much you want to earn and then set your work hours according to that goal.
Family and friends
You know that you will be having sex frequently with strangers in your work as an escort. This could be a contentious issue with your family who will either not approve of it or will be concerned about your safety. Although escorts are largely accepted as professionals, it may still concern your family and they may be worried about the image you create for yourself around others.
You don’t want your escort work to affect your family relationships negatively. Similarly, consider whether you are ready to tell your friends about being an escort, and whether they will accept your choice. As with everything in life, it is a choice you make and there are some tradeoffs. Now, it is completely possible that both your family and friends accept your choice and be fine with it.
Many escorts simply do not reveal that they are escorts to their family and friends. They thus do not have to face this dilemma. An important thing about the escort business is that there is very little information floating out there about you. Officially, there is no way for anybody to know that you had sex with your clients. You could just put your profession forward as a clean one.
Here is how you can become an escort and still be safe. When you are an escort, you do not reveal much information about yourself to even your clients. All escorts use aliases when they meet clients, so there is no personally identifying information that people have about you. The smart escorts are careful not to let their pictures circulate and be associated online with the escort business.
Although escort work involves sex, it doesn’t mean that just about anybody with a cute face can become a successful one. As mentioned earlier, being an escort is much more about sex. You can’t just sell yourself purely on how you appear. Remember you are accompanying your client to various places. Your client may be a high profile businessman with prestige in his industry.
When you accompany such a person, you are part of his image and how you handle yourself among other high profile people matters a lot. In other words, the escort business is very much a people business. You need to know how to handle people and how to communicate with them effectively. Your work should enhance your client’s image, which will make him happy and he might book you again and again.
Of course, it does matter how good you look. However, you need your whole body to be in shape. If you have a perfect figure, but can’t clear that frown on your face, you might want to reconsider your choice. That doesn’t make your client happy. This is why many escorts feel that you should become an escort only if you are happy and comfortable doing so. If you have a certain comfort level, you will be more confident and will come across as a beautiful person for company.
People who hire escorts on a regular basis know what the really good escorts are like. If you want to attract clients who pay big money, you need to convince them that you have the required skills.
If you are of a very strong nature and are independent, an escort job will suit you just fine. You will of course need to figure out whether you have polished skills when talking with people. It also matters whether you can keep your client in good humor, because that is what company is all about.
Your work nature
You may want to become an escort just so you can earn a bit of extra money. If that is the case, you are likely considering part time work as an escort. This is a good choice, especially when you are getting started. It helps you learn more about the escort service industry, while still holding on to the comfort of your regular job. This is, in fact, how many successful escorts start their work.
If you are going to work part time, you need to consider how you might divide your time. You might feel that you can work at your day job and then be an escort during the evenings and nights. As great as this seems, it can be exhausting to work for so long and it will take a toll on you very soon. You should consider working weekends as an escort, so that you can manage better.
Once you get a hang of the escort service industry, you can increase your work timings because you will know when and where you can relax. You will also know how to adjust your timings so you can manage both your jobs nicely.
On the other hand, if you want to get into an escort job full time, things just get a whole lot easier. You can take on multiple clients each day and earn more. At the start however, it is important to remember that you will have fewer clients and your workload will only increase as time goes on.
The best way to get started as an escort in the UK is through agencies. There are many agencies supplying escorts to clients in all the big UK cities. Since there are dozens, even hundreds of such escort agencies, you will of course need to do the work of separating the good from the bad. Just consider a few points and you should land at the right agency.
- The first thing that you have to know about escort agencies before choosing them is to find out what their commission split is. You would still collect the money from the client but the agency will collect their commission from you. Commissions are normally the same throughout all agencies taking on average a 30% cut.
- Pay is however not everything when it comes to an agency. You want your agency to follow the best safety practices to protect you from potentially bad clients. Only choose those agencies that screen their clients before accepting to supply them with escorts. A good escort agency will be able to suss out the good clients from the bad clients and they also keep a database of people that have contacted them in the past. This database will help agencies when problem clients phone in the future.
If you want to get into escort work, you might know somebody who is involved in the business. Ask for the advice for choosing the best agency. They usually know a few agencies and will tell you which ones you can trust.
The benefit of working for an agency is they take care of everything such as the website, marketing, screening client calls etc. This gives you much more time to focus on the bookings instead of the other aspects of the business.
If you decide that you don’t want to give an agency a share of the fees the client pays you, go independent. It will definitely earn you a lot more money. However, there are many challenges in going independent. You have to market yourself and get your name out there. The best way to do it is probably to set up a website.
If you have a website, you need to maintain it and update it. It takes time and money that you have to shell out from your own pocket. Also, you will need to screen your clients yourself. You also have to take your own safety measures, such as arriving early to check the place out and hiring a driver for help if you need it.
However, being independent also means that you get to choose when you work and how much you earn. If you are considering this, find help from another independent escort who can get you clients and also help you through the process in general.
When you start out being an escort, you will face some difficulties. Firstly, the whole culture might be alien to you and you might not meet the high profile clients that you expected at the beginning. It is important for you to be patient and work your way through it. As you work more, people will increasingly come to know about you from various sources.
Given some time, you will also have sharpened your skills that you require in order to be a successful escort. Clients will eventually pay more for your services because of higher quality. If you know what you are getting into, being an escort can be a happy journey for you, and a really lucrative one at that.
