Can Escorts Find Love?

Can Escorts Find Love? | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Getting rejected and abandoned is no fun. But even more seriously, if it looks like a relationship is about to end, most escorts will begin to worry that their former partner may reveal her secret life to family and friends or report her to the authorities. Living double lives as most escorts do, often leads to a profound sense of isolation. 


Family members and even close friends are not good sources of emotional support either. Most don't know the truth about an escort's life and work or they hold that truth in contempt. At best, they may tolerate what an escort does in hopes that she will come to her senses someday. But this isn't a safe place to take feelings and fears. Instead, escorts can become increasingly solitary. All too often it seems the clients of escorts are the only source of love and respect which an escort can count on.

Coming Out as a Whore: My Story

Coming Out as a Whore: My Story | Sex Work | Scoop.it

In the absence of any grand poetry or political polemic, I want to share something personal which I hope will help others who are dealing with the same problem; coming out as a sex worker.

Beyond Richard Gere (Dating My John)

Beyond Richard Gere (Dating My John) | Sex Work | Scoop.it

I'm seeing an amazing guy who I met doing sex work—as in, he was paying me for straight-up sex. It's not a Pretty Woman situation. He's my age and not wealthy, and I'm too old for that anyway. We share a lot of geeky interests and have a great connection, and the sex is awesome. When I was seeing him for pay, I would think, "I would totally date this guy." We transitioned to friends with benefits several months back. Then some "I love yous" were exchanged, and now we are in a monogamous relationship. For context, I did independent escorting for about six months while I was in school. (I played up the nerdy grad student angle, and that was crazy successful.) I keep thinking that there must be something "wrong" with the way we met, but maybe that's internalized attitudes toward sex work? Can this work? Everything about our relationship feels positive, but sometimes I think, "Really? Dating your john?" Maybe I just need your OK to feel better.

Elmer Gantry: A Reason To Get Up In The Morning

Elmer Gantry: A Reason To Get Up In The Morning | Sex Work | Scoop.it

What may have begun as the vengeful opportunistic act of a lover scorned (deflowered and left to prostitution) is quickly shown to be more complicated, exposing more than unfinished business but unrequited feelings between the two.

Why men like going to strippers | thenakedtruth

Why men like going to strippers | thenakedtruth | Sex Work | Scoop.it

For men (MASCULINE) the draw to women (FEMININE) can be like a revitalisation of their very being. Men who surround themselves with more feminine energy tend to have more motivation, confidence and drive for life.

 

"Masculine men are attracted to forms of feminine energy: radiant women, beer, music, nature etc.” – David Deida

How Sex Workers See Their Own Sexuality

How Sex Workers See Their Own Sexuality | Sex Work | Scoop.it

There are a lot of myths surrounding the sexuality of whores. Everyone seems to assume we’re either nymphos or frigid, over-fucked to the point where we no longer have any interest in unpaid recreational sex. While I’m sure there are people who fit into these categories, I’ve never met any of them.

Gracie Passette's insight:

I love this line: The extent to which they assume I mustwant them for no other reason than their possession of a penis would be insulting if their desire to be wanted wasn’t so oddly endearing.

Unfinished Conversations & On The Differences Between Sex & The Intimacy Of Companionship - Sex~Kitten.net | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Rubbing our parts in robotic electronics, no matter how supple, no matter how able to respond in terms of coos and ooohs, no matter what level of "special order" creation status to match our individual personalities and needs, will not satiate our hunger for real companionship.

"I would prefer to be with a sex worker than a waiter"

"I would prefer to be with a sex worker than a waiter" | Sex Work | Scoop.it

There are men out there who're turned on by the idea of their girlfriends/wives having sex with other men; some men are turned on by the idea of their girlfriends/wives being paid for sex. You're clearly one of those guys. And you're within your rights to share this information with your girlfriend and to try to convince her to return to sex work. Because your fantasies of sex work---of her doing sex work---turn you on. Again, that's fine. But you could make a more convincing case, PIMP, if you were better acquainted with the realities of sex work.

 

You should suck off strange men for money.

Why This Married Wall Street Banker Pays For Sex

Why This Married Wall Street Banker Pays For Sex | Sex Work | Scoop.it
I don't see anything wrong with paying a younger, beautiful girl to sleep with me. I work at a big name investment bank in New York and have been in banking since college. I interned my freshman year and was hooked.
