Meet Jessica. She’s 32, and holds a managerial role at one of the big four banks.
Her background is privileged – in her words, “I came from the sort of family who pushed me to have the best education, a conventional life and become the best lady I could be.”
She lives on her own, like many 30-somethings in Sydney, and while money hasn’t been much of an issue for her because of her successful career, dating however, has proved to be infuriating.
Jessica is also my latest recruit as a Samantha X Angel, my high-class escort agency. She has decided that selling her body and more importantly her time, for $800 an hour, was a much better option than dating in Sydney.
“I just found time and time again men were masquerading as relationship seekers online, when they were really only sex seekers. These guys would go through the motions of dating, but clearly have no desire to gain an emotional attachment. They don’t want a human relationship, they just want fun on their terms.”
Having been curious about the industry for years, Jessica dreamt about sneaking into five star hotels, wearing sexy lingerie, and holding clandestine meetings with strangers.
“I used to date pilots back in the day and spent hours making love in hotel beds. I knew then, I wanted a bit more excitement in my corporate life. I wanted a naughty secret that you wouldn’t assume if you looked at me.”
To look at Jessica, she is girl next door with a voluptuous size 12 figure. She is also proving to be one of my most popular Angels.
Having been an Angel now for four months, she has seen close to 50 clients and has spent many evenings in hotel rooms. So is her fantasy all it’s cracked up to be?
Well, it not for the faint-hearted. There can be late nights, rude clients and unusual requests. It can cause havoc in dating life, and disconnecting for the job may make it hard to re-connect when you meet someone you like.
Also, it is addictive.
Going back to a 9-5 in some office for quarter of the money will be hard, if not impossible. But for Jessica, it’s working for her at this stage in her life.
“I am wondering why I didn’t start this sooner,” she says. “I am surprised at how easily I have adapted to being an escort. I am getting regular sex and having more orgasms than ever and I don’t have to deal with the emotional rollercoaster that comes with dating.”
“Nine times out of 10, it is vanilla sex they are after. But what amazes me even more, is that men are paying me $800 an hour and the question I hear the most from them is ‘How can I pleasure you?’”
“Guys I have dated in the real world have skipped foreplay and gone straight into intercourse without giving a shit about my sexual needs or desires. In my opinion, sex with clients is a more enriched, better experience.”
“People may think that escorting is disempowering for women, but I wholeheartedly disagree. I am being financially rewarded for what I used to do for free and I don’t have any of the bullshit lies, or text messages, or imaginary follow up dates from some man I’ve met in my real life.”
