Ask An Escort; David 45 runs an escort agency in Portsmouth:

How did you start in the escort business? I was a disillusioned carpet fitter in Portsmouth working 12 hours a day when I spotted a business opportunity for entrepreneurs to run their own escort agency. There is a company called escort-empire that gives a full turnkey business package for people to run a successful escort agency.

How many escorts in Portsmouth do you have working for you? It varies, but at any time I will have at least 30 girls on my books, we work from 11 am until 4 pm every day.

How many bookings do you do in a day? Because we follow the business plan that escort-empire have devised we will comfortably do forty bookings a day. With that many bookings, we can easily make a profit of around £25000 per month.

Where do you see life in five years from now? That’s a good question. I am planning to open a second escort agency in Southampton next year so I hope to double my income.

What type of escorts do you have on your books? To run a successful escort agency in Portsmouth you need a variety of escorts to please any potential clients. At Portsmouth Deluxe we have teen escorts, Mature escorts, Asian girls and Pornstar escorts.

What type of girl becomes a Portsmouth escort? We have housewives that want to earn more money than they could get working in retail, College girls working their way through to their degree, all types of girls come to work at the agency.

Would you recommend running an escort agency for someone? As long as it’s not a Portsmouth escort agency I would definitely recommend this business, it has changed my life, you meet some of the nicest people, the girls are fantastic, we are all good friends. It is relatively simple for anyone with a bit of business savvy, the business plan that escort-empire has put together is guaranteed to succeed.

Do all your Portsmouth escorts have sex with clients? The clients book the girls for their time only, if a girl wants to have sex with a guy that is her choice. So the answer to the question is no the escorts don’t have to have sex with their clients, it’s a matter of choice.

How have you found life has changed since you started in the escort business? My life has changed beyond all recognition. I used to work 12 hours a day and could hardly make ends meet, now I have lots of time to do the things I want to do, play golf, socialize with friends and my escorts, we are all good friends. My income has also changed beyond all recognition too, Where I used to drive a van I now drive a 6 series BMW and have a holiday apartment in Marbella, and I did this within two years of starting with escort empire.

Are escorts in Portsmouth a threat to family life or an honest way to earn money? From confusing them with prostitutes to assuming they are vulnerable or low-life women who come from a background of poverty and abuse, escorts keep being both a mystery and a moral conundrum for many people. Back in the days, it was easy to view prostitution as something only for women who were looking to earn ‘easy’ money, or as a threat to the integrity of families. A more liberal and open-minded society helped shine a light on people’s rights and the stigmatisation of certain areas of employment — escorting being one of them. But not all's right with the world, as confusion, fear, and ignorance still rule the general idea people have about escorts and their job.

Do Portsmouth escort agency girls offer sexual services to clients? It’s easy to come across many articles online talking about how sex workers are vulnerable women who, either as a cause of a traumatic and abusive childhood or to earn quick money to buy drugs, resort to becoming escorts or prostitutes. While it would be unfair to cross out those circumstances, it would also be disrespectful to generalise every instance in which every-day women choose to make this their line of work. So to start, it’s only fair to answer the most popular questions first: what is a Portsmouth escort, and how is it different from a prostitute? The easiest way to define the difference is by saying that first of all escorts are not Streetwalkers, and they don’t necessarily have to have sex with a client. On the contrary, plenty of escorts in Portsmouth define themselves as carers or a way out from the married life; these women often play the part of the girlfriend to be courted and be taken out on dates, therefore requiring less commitment from the man, and giving them a getaway from their problems and stress of everyday life. As mentioned before, a common misconception to make is that the women deciding to take up this job come from rough backgrounds — which is in fact rarely the case.

From local housewives to University students, can anyone become a female escort in Portsmouth? From college students and minimum wage workers looking to earn extra money to women who are willing to climb the ladder and launch their business (both in escorting and outside), this career path is surprisingly popular amongst smart, creative women. So if escorting represents work freedom where women can explore their sexuality in a mostly safe environment, what is the morality of looking into going on a date with them? If 70% of clients who visit escorts are married, does it mean the job is immoral or does the problem lie with the clientele? Of course, what is considered moral varies from person to person, however, it’s safe to point out that the end result (cheating) would still be achieved through other means. So if one is so committed to cheating, it doesn’t really make sense to be paying for it — there are other ways to meet women, such as dating sites or social gatherings.

What type of men book Portsmouth escorts? The obvious answer is that sometimes men have to resort to hiring Portsmouth escorts for a variety of reasons: maybe for lack of good looks, charm, or a decent personality, it’s harder for them to attract women outside marriage. In other words, just as escorting is a way to make easy money for the escort, it is also an easy way for the client to have sex. But in the end, if it’s a choice between escorting and more dubious ways to make money, it is perhaps a fairly innocent evil for society to swallow.
