Not followed this full thread so forgive me if this has been asked already...
For the ladies:
What age did you start out as an escort? And how did you start (parlour/indie etc etc)?
I started at 22 after talking to another girl that was doing it and earning far more than I was as a duty Manager in a Hotel. She made it all sound so easy. I worked for an outcall agency in the North West, (I am from the South) and whilst is was no the world of glamour that was suggested to me, I did find it fun and exciting.
Another friend asked me to help out at a parlour as the boss had just had a mass clearout, and was desperate for new girls. I started doing two days at the parlour and two days out calls. My inherent laziness meant I soon stopped doing outcalls, as it was just getting too much hassle, so I started working for these two days at a different parlour/sauna.
Now I am slowly cutting back my time as a working girl. I work one day regular parlour, one day for long term regulars only, and three days as a Maid.
