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 matter, but you need to consider the pros and cons of each carefully before beginning work.

If you are fresh to the business then it might be a good idea to work for an agency, even if only 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 talk 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 think when they initially begin, and it can be contenting to have someone else to look after some things for you, while you find your feet. For example, the agency will take care of advertising, will screen prospective clients, will manage your diary for you, and will handle booking hotel rooms and organising transport, when necessary.

Perhaps most essentially 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 significant degree of safety, and with a backup team to call on if you fall into trouble.

Speaking of trouble, the law also plays a significant part 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 while, and are extremely accustomed to what you and cannot do. This again can be enough to stop you inadvertently running into problems.

The Disadvantages of Working for an Agency

An escort agency is the same as any other business, and some are ridiculously well run while others are poorly run, and may even simply exploit their escorts without a care for anything other than the profit the business can make. For this reason, you need to do your homework 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 arranging appointments, they will also require certain things from you in return. For example, they may need you to be free for work between certain hours each day, and determine how much time off you can have each week. They may also dictate where you must be when you are not working, perhaps letting you go home, as long as they can contact you on the phone, or requesting you to be available in the agency’s office.

The agency is also in the business of making profit and does this generally by taking a cut of the fees paid by the client for providing him or her with an escort. Fees can be large, especially in major cities where it is not uncommon for clients to pay several hundred dollars an hour for an escort. You will need to look thoroughly at the financial arrangements sought after by different agencies and select what is, and what is not, acceptable to you.

The Advantages of Working as an Independent Escort

Private escorts are esentially their own bosses, choosing for themselves when they work, who they accept as clients, and what they are comfortable to do. In effect you are enjoying all of the benefits, including the financial benefits, of being self employed and, for many people, these advantages 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, checking out potential clients, booking hotel rooms, organising transport, and indeed confronting anything else that comes up. This can be a great deal of work at first, but much of this routine work becomes second nature as time goes on. One thing that you have to take on board though, and which will never become irrevelant, are the risks that come along 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 cover yourself. The list of precautions you need to take is far too extensive to detail them all here, but will include such things as certifying 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 consider for independent escorts.

On Balance

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