I like how some people purport to know all about the inner-workings of the minds and motives of women in the sex industry
Some turn to prostitution because they have no other choice, financially or addiction-wise. James loves to drive this point home - this is perhaps due to his insecurities. Who knows.
Some choose it for the flexible hours and good pay but have a career plan or study elsewhere and do leave as and when planned. Think of foreign girls who work for 2 years and then retire, taking the money home or setting up in the UK. Or part-time students who actually do leave once they get a job in their field. Some retire to marry or couple up (sometimes they live happily ever after, sometimes not)
Yes, Some get sidelined by the money and get trapped somewhat.
What shows you up as not having much real insight, only conjecture, is when you say it's a very easy way of earning money. On occasion it is, but mainly it is NOT easy. Maybe for the male mind it would be, but it isn't for the majority of females (even prossies).
Why? well how about having to deal intimately with at times smelly people? at times you will encounter someone who's personality or looks repulses you but you must remain professional and be intimate with them nonetheless? you face stigma from the general public and most prossies have to lie to friends and family and hate it? You are very unlikely to have a successful relationship whilst involved, and even if you manage it there will be problems associated to be overcome? You may have big gaps in your CV if you hadn't thought it through properly and you can't exactly write 'escort'? You must have a will of steel and be totally secure in yourself. Of course at times it's a great job - good to meet interesting people is one good attribute, but there are huge downsides which most men don't realise when they make the proclamation of "easy money".
If that last post was directed at me, I don't purport to know anything for certain. I'm only stating my own view, based in large part, from speaking with other escorts on and off for over 3 years. And that's on a face to face basis, not via some forum.
I accept there are other views. Why do you come across as so self defensive? I wasn't having a pop at you. I think that you're a little bit presumptuous yourself concerning a man's mindset. Maybe there are some men who would take that view. I do not.
I never said that girls do not leave prostitution for good. I'm sure that many do and go on to other things. And are, deep down, mentally happier for it. I've simply noticed that it tends to be when things go wrong in those very same examples you site, such as new relationship, new job and so on, the very same British girls invariably come back. And I stress British. I do think some of your other examples are exceptional, such as some foreign and genuine students. It's only my experience through such conversations girls stating that 'they're back' from 'retirement. I do take your general point, however and agree with the gist.
As for my 'easy money' comment, I'll clarify this, as it's clearly wound you up. I didn't mean it's easy for an escort in any emotional sense or with a horrible client at all. I simply meant that for relatively little training or skill, you can charge a very large amount of money, tax free, by the hour. There is no other job where you could earn that much, by the hour, for so little training, skill or experience. Now that is an undeniable FACT. I'm sure that even you can admit that, even if you provide some caveats. That it's possible for a girl to do this, matters to me not one jot because I only book and pay what I think a girl and the service she delivers is worth and what I can afford. If she can charge £500 an hour like some girls do in London successfully, then good luck to her! If I man wants to pay this, that's up to him.
I do not underestimate at all that it can be very difficult for girls like you and yes, I've heard the stories about smelly punters who haven't seen the shower for a good amount of time and very dangerous experiences.
I've noticed that you hark on a lot in other posts,stressing this is all about personal choice. Ergo, you can choose whether you see that same smelly or horrible client, can't you? If a client comes to you in a disgusting state, you can choose to quite rightly kick him out of the door and ask for some money for wasting your time. Who would disagree with you on that? You can also stipulate as part of your profile (not sure where you advertise?) that a client must shower first, at your place, prior to any physical contact taking place. A shower is but 5 minutes and I know escorts that that do this. As you say, it's all about choice.
