Gross Jun 3rd 2017

Message I once received from someone who I then blocked from contacting me:

Hi if I book you can we make a baby

Now this is just a gross thing to send to any escort but I'm very childfree so feel particularly nauseated by messages like this. I had a client before who, at the end of a booking, started asking if I'd consider donating my eggs cos he didn't yet have a kid with my complexion, I told him no and he text me later to ask if I was planning to have kids, which is so intrusive and gross and ew.

Do sex acts make you gay? Jun 2, 2017

I can’t stop laughing — a client just asked for strap on service with the words “Without sounding gay I’d like you to bring strap on, would like to experience that”.

Since when does a man enjoying a sex act with a woman make the man gay?

Why is straight cis masculinity so fragile?

‘My Airbnb flat was turned into a pop-up brothel’ — BBC News Jun 1, 2017

Oh wow the people who booked this Airbnb were really awful — when I booked short term apartments I always left it absolutely spotless and made sure there was no evidence of what I’d been letting it out for. I mean I also always worked alone so I couldn’t have been accused of running a brothel (as the article says, in the UK escorting is legal if you work alone).

Discretion should be your middle name in this business.

Also the guy looking up their rates and seeing they charge £1300 a night so clearly they made £5000 between them while they were there, that’s very unlikely that they would’ve had overnight bookings both nights they were renting out the property — they probably instead had a string of shorter bookings.

And gosh the escort who is interviewed saying that she lost her house after doing a documentary and getting recognised by her neighbour, this is why you don’t do documentaries and magazine interviews, the journalists just want the juicy details, they don’t care that you have a life outside of escorting. Also your clients are going to be wary of you after that as they will realise you are a bit publicity happy — it’s like escorts who kiss and tell to tabloids about some famous person who booked them. Was the one off cash payout worth losing your clients’ trust? One thing clients are paying us for is for no strings and utmost discretion.

Reminded That I’m Ace-spec May 29, 2017

I had a reminder that I see sex somewhat differently to most escorts. I follow a forum where escorts support each other and chat about various sex work related topics, and one woman was ranting about clients who don’t know how to give oral sex properly.

Now, I generally feel that if a client wants to attempt to pleasure me then that’s just another service I offer and as long as they aren’t hurting me, even inept cunnilingus is fine — it’s just a bonus if they can make me orgasm but it doesn’t frustrate me if they can’t because it’s really about the client’s pleasure. And if they’re enjoying themselves slobbering away down there then that’s good!

But some women in the thread were talking about how they look foward to “getting properly laid” by a client, and I saw that I don’t have the same feelings about sex as a lot of other escorts because of being ace-spec.

I just can’t understand how you can feel fulfilled in a sexual encounter without an emotional connection, and it would be really wierd to have an emtional connection with a client, so yeah in bookings I have fun, and feel good if I make the client have a good time, but it’s just not real sex for me, just work.

Now, with a romantic partner everything is just better — you have open and honest communication and you care about them and you want to make each other feel good — that’s getting properly laid for me!
