Escort Misconceptions

Confessions of an Australian Escort

There are many misconceptions that exist about sex workers and as an active Australian escort, I thought I’d clear a few up for you.

That we’ve all got Daddy issues:
When I tell people that I’m an escort, I usually get one of two reactions. The first, and the most common, is the ultra-concerned person who, with a pained expression on their face, will usually touch my arm and say something along the lines of, “Oh my god. Are you okay?”, as they assume I’ve faced a life of sexual abuse, or had a boyfriend who’s forced me into the industry. I always find it hard not to laugh at these people because if you knew anything about me, you’d know I had a normal, healthy childhood and still maintain a great relationship with my parents. And no, I was never forced into becoming a hooker – if anything, boyfriends would try and talk me out of it. Needless to say, they didn’t stay ‘boyfriends’ for very long… The second type of reaction, and my favourite, are the people who understand how exciting the job actually is and will say, “OH MY GOD! THAT’S AWESOME!” and want to know all the gory details. Because it’s true, it is an exciting job.

That we hate our jobs:
While I don’t speak for all Aussie escorts, I can confidently say that I love my job. It’s taught me to become more independent and more assertive and given me access to thousands of exciting people and experiences that I might never have been a part of if I wasn’t an escort. I work for myself, I dictate my own hours and I choose to entertain the company of whichever gentleman I want. Some days I get paid to have threesomes or am a present from a husband to a wife on a wedding anniversary – how could anyone hate that job? Sure though, some days the job is a bit mundane – like the business who books me for missionary for an hour every Tuesday, but like any job, it has its ups and downs. But thanks to the great money I make, if I am ever burned out and need a break, I am able to take the time I need to recoup – which is not a luxury I was ever afforded in my previous jobs.

That we become escorts because we’re desperate:
People often think women become escorts as a last resort because we’re broke and can’t gain any other kind of employment. For some escorts, I’m sure there’s probably some truth to that, but for me (and many of my escort friends), I made the choice to become a sex worker because, and it might seem hard to believe, I just love sex. I was never damaged goods crying in the gutter, contemplating a career in sex because I was desperate. Hell no! I chose to leave a high paying job in a well-known company after realising one day that I wanted a job that excited me.

That it’s all about sex:
Going into my first few escorting jobs, I will admit that I thought sex work was all about, well, sex. But I learned pretty quickly that a lot of men just want female companionship. Some just want to talk and have someone listen and be affectionate to them. Sometimes they’re just booking company. When it really comes down to it, everybody has different wants and desires and often the men who visit me don’t know exactly what it is they want or how to articulate it, and it’s my job to figure it out and give it to them.
