Is Being An Escort Safe?
Is Being An Escort Safe?
There are a couple different risks that you need to account for in being an escort, and these risks vary from small to big. The main three risks are as follows:
Law Enforcement & Escorts
Being arrested for prostitution is definitely not something one aspires to have happen to them. The risk varies by location, but generally speaking if you want to avoid this risk the best thing you can do is keep your advertising low key, only offer outcall service and before discussing sex of any nature with a client whom you’ve never been with before, make them expose themselves as a police officer couldn’t do this. If he’s whipped his penis out of his pant, you can be sure he’s not an under cover cop. Most of the time when police arrest women for prostitution it’s for soliciting (ie standing on a street corner) or for running a common bawdy house (incall location where the neighbors complain). If you stay away from both of these then you’re limiting your exposure to law enforcement.
Abusive Clients & Escorts
In my 6 years as an escort I had a couple clients that were “difficult” and that tried my patience, but I never had any one that was physically abusive or threatening towards me. If you rip your clients off, you don’t stay for the entire hour, etc you are probably more likely to run into a physically abusive client. Don’t get me wrong, I am not justifying anyone being physically abusive for any reason. I am just saying if you provide an honest service chances of running into an abusive client is very small.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases
This is the biggest concern for me, however I made it through 6 years as an escort with out ever catching anything and so it definitely is possible. I practiced a couple means of precaution, including not kissing or allowing DATY with any one with open cuts or sores on their mouth, not having any contact with clients who had rashes or warts on their genitals and keeping an eye open for anything that didn’t seem right. If I had doubts or concerns my health and safety always came first. I ran into a few clients over the years where I didn’t go through with it because I was concerned for my health. I may have lost out on $500 or so at the time, but looking back at it now I can tell you with 100% confidence that I don’t regret it at ALL!
So as you can see from the above explanation it’s perfectly possible to avoid all risks and go about your business as an escort. However you do have to be smart and when possible go with your gut. Quick cash is never worth risking your long term well being.
