Escorting, not sex.

Saturday, July 11, 2009
A lot of prostitutes like to claim they're escorts, not whores. They provide "companionship" in lieu of sex, as if they're as innocent as a chaperone at a high school dance. I, on the other hand, have no problem admitting what I am -- a gigolo, a prostitute, a whore.

That being said, there are times that I am truly paid to be an escort, and not have sex with the client. Most of the time these women are professionals, in their mid-40s, and in need of a man to accompany them for an evening on the town. Whether it's an art gallery opening, a wedding, a show at a theatre, etc.

It's funny -- most men would look at going to one of these events as a way to pick up women (or should I say girls, considering most of these rich men date women young enough to be their daughters?), but women are often embarrassed over being single. That might sound like a gender stereotype, but trust me, it's also true.

I've made thousands being a woman's arm candy for the evening, and these gigs are often some of the best paying ones. Sure, pocketing $200.00 for one-hour of sex is amazing, but being a woman's escort for the evening often lasts from 8:00 p.m. to midnight, meaning I can pocket a quick $800.00 for basically enjoying myself.

I'd like to think my education comes in handy as well. Being able to navigate a crowd, mingle with strangers on any number of topics doesn't come easy to many people. I try to stay vague on a few subjects -- mainly politics -- and under no circumstances would I ever bring up religion. Mainly, I just talk while drinking champagne and nibbling on hors d' oeuvres.

This past year hot topics of discussion have been the economy, Alex Rodriguez's steroids scandal, and of course the Presidential Election. Sometimes people will ask a few personal questions of me (where am I from, where did I go to school, etc.) but mostly it's just general chit-chat.

So, while sex does indeed pay the bills, sometimes I really do earn my living as an escort, not a whore. It's during my time escorting -- not whoring -- that I get to show the "real" me a bit more. Much as I love my line of work, having two identities can sometimes be a burden.
