Private Escorts – Employment Options

When it comes to finding work as an escort, whether you are male or female, gay or straight, you can decide to work for an escort agency, or join the ranks of the independent escorts, or indies. Which you should choose is very much a personal decision, but you need to consider the pros and cons of each thoroughly prior to starting work.

If you are new to the business then it could be a good idea to work for an agency, at least for a while, so that you can become accustomed to the ins and outs of the escort business. This will also give you the opportunity to speak to other escorts employed by the agency, and learn from sharing their experiences.

The Advantages of Working for an Agency

There is more to working as an escort than many people assume when they initially commence, and it can be contenting to have someone else to look after some things for you, while you are getting comfortable. For example, the agency will take care of advertising, will screen potential clients, will manage your diary for you, and will take care of booking hotel rooms and organising transport, when needed.

Perhaps most importantly for many escorts, the agency provides a safety net as they know where you are and what you are doing at any given moment, and the client is very conscious of this. This provides you with a notable level of protection, and with a backup team to call on if you run into trouble.

Speaking of trouble, the law also plays a significant role in many escort’s lives, and the degree to which it affects you will hinge on where you are working, and how you are operating your business. Many escort agencies have been around for a long time, and are extremely accustomed to what you and cannot do. This again can be enough to stop you unintentionally running into issues.

The Disadvantages of Working for an Agency

An escort agency is the same as any other business, and some are extremely well run while others are poorly run, and may even simply take advantage of their escorts without a care for anything other than the money the business can make. For this reason, you need to do your research and make sure you know exactly what kind of agency you are joining.

While an agency will handle much of the background work for you, such as advertising, client screening and organising appointments, they will also need certain things from you in return. For example, they may ask you to be available for work between certain hours each day, and determine how much time off you can have each week. They may also dictate where you have to be when you are not working, perhaps allowing you to go home, as long as they can contact you on the phone, or requiring you to be available in the agency’s office.

The agency is also in the business of making money and does this generally by taking a percentage of the fees paid by the client for providing him or her with an escort. Fees can be high, especially in major cities where it is not out of the ordinary for clients to pay several hundred dollars an hour for an escort. You will need to look thoroughly at the financial agreement required by different agencies and decide what is, and what is not, acceptable to you.

The Benefits of Working as an Independent Escort

Private escorts are very much their own bosses, choosing for themselves when they work, who they accept as clients, and what they are prepared to do. In effect you are enjoying all of the benefits, including the monetary benefits, of being self employed and, for many people, these benefits often outweigh any disadvantages.

The Disadvantages of Working as an Independent Escort

Working for yourself means that you will have to arrange everything yourself, including such things as advertising, screening potential clients, booking hotel rooms, organising transport, and indeed dealing with anything else that comes up. This can be a lot of work at first, but much of this routine work becomes second nature as time goes on. One thing that you have to understand though, and which will never become irrevelant, are the risks that accompany with escort work.

Like it or not, escort work can certainly be very dangerous, and you must not only be constantly wary, but must take positive steps to care for yourself. The list of precautions you need to take is far too long to detail them all here, but will include such things as ensuring that any room you use with a client has an emergency exit that you can use, and making sure that someone knows where you are, and that the client is aware of this fact. Convincing yourself that this is a safe enough area and that nothing is going to happen to you does not work, and safety needs to be at the top of the list of things to think about for independent escorts.

On Balance

As with any job there are both good and bad points to becoming an escort, and this is certainly one job that you need to go into with a careful mindset. That said, independent escorts can enjoy a very comfortable lifestyle if they get it right, and the job can be good fun if you have the fitting personality for it, take the time to learn what you are doing, and set your business up properly.
