to be honest with you.....I can see the op point of view from a consumer point of view, wanting to view the goods before you buy etc......however from a woman's point of view things are slightly more risky.....the following are the risks that alot of girls might be scared of. The following examples are real-life scenarios that actually happened to escorts that have been posted on saafe forum
1)potential clients who have been refused a booking for some reason- if they can get a picture of the girl- and put a face to the girl who turned down their booking /refused them service- potentially they could hunt her down. make vindictive posters and post them around neighbourhood. they might turn into a stalker, follow her or even worst
2)wives/girlfriend geting a male friend to pose a client, to get a picture of the slut fucking their man. if they already have the escorts working flat address, they found on their mans phone when he booked the appointment, then all they need is a face of the escort who ruined their life. they may use the picture, to seek her out, get people to beat her up, shame her in public, send letters to neighbours
3)journalists getting pictures, posing as a client and using picture in local paper, escort shamed in public and in town (this has actually happened in some places)
4) paranoid manager/staff of hotel- many of you may not know this, but some hotels browse adultwork tour board- if they can get a full picture of your face, to confirm its you, then they can refuse you a room or kick you out.
5)potential pimps may not be happy that a certain working girl is on their turf, imagine what they could do with a face picture.
many people dont actually see "the background of operations" so to speak. they wouldn't think that such a innocent request could bring any objection. i probarly would have thought the same thing too, if i didnt escort myself, but its these little things that keep us safer. this job is a risky one, and for this we get greatly compensated. we all know the risks- however i think a majority of escorts who are not showing their face, would refuse to send a random stranger a picture of themselves, you only need to go on saafe and read all the replies and opinions on the topic. at the end of the day, if you turn up at the girls place and she is bait n swiitch or not to your liking, you are under no obligation to hand over the money. just walk away.
however if a face picture is really essential- dealbreaker, then probarly best to choose a girl already showing her face.
