Go online and look at what young university graduates are facing in this job market. Really, look. Notice a common theme? They send out resumes -- either to specific job postings or to companies -- only to hear nothing in return. Sure, this can be attributed to the sheer amount of crappy resumes and cover letters produced, but there's something else to it as well.
Now more than ever, university graduates are competing with their more experienced counterparts for the same openings. Should a 30-something professional be laid off from their mid-career position, well, they're going to apply for whatever is out there, even if it's beneath their professional station.
So, when a 30-something and a 20-something apply for the same job, who's really going to win? That's right, the 30-something, because they have more experience and qualifications. Why wouldn't an employer hire the 30-something over the 20-something? Really, they'd be an idiot not to.
Now in sex work, well, things work quite differently. That fresh-faced graduate in their 20s is going to have a significant advantage over the escort in their 30s, at least when it comes to getting signed by an agency. I'm not sure where I heard this adage, but escorting is one of the few fields where the younger and less experienced a girl/guy is, the more she/he can charge for their services.
That's not to say there aren't successful escorts out there who are no longer in their 20s. But honestly, is that high-earning professional who wants to have sex for an hour really going to choose someone closer to his age than a cute little thing in her 20s?
So, allow me to close this entry by saying this: Escorting is a quick, easy way for young people to make money. I know that sounds like a gross generalization, but in many ways it's true. Age and experience may be rewarded in the corporate world, but when it comes to sex... well, that's our territory.
Also allow me to say that I may take a bit of a hiatus from the blog. Nothing long, just a long weekend perhaps. I have lots of entries that need to be sorted out before posting. Feel free to browse the archives and email me with any questions you may have -- and thanks for reading!
