Why are women choosing to work for escort services?
The term “escort” has been around for nearly a century, but it’s only recently that women have been choosing to go that route.
But how much do they really know about escorts and how does the profession compare to the rest of the sex industry?
“There’s a lot of misinformation out there,” says Lauren Haddad, author of “The Escort Handbook.”
She is also the founder and director of the women’s-focused website “MyEscort.”com.
“They think they know everything about escort, but they don’t.
And if they do know about the industry, they’re not necessarily the best people to talk to.
And so there’s a disconnect between the people who are making a living in the industry and the people that they’re talking to.”
For the last few years, Haddads’ organization has been working to make sure people understand that escorts are different than other women’s jobs, and what they bring to the table.
The result is an interactive infographic that gives readers a more nuanced understanding of what it’s like to be a woman in the sex trade.
“I think there’s an important disconnect between escorts’ expectations and what people really want from their sex work,” she says.
“We really want to talk about how escorts actually treat their clients.
And that’s really the challenge.”
So far, the survey has gathered over 1,600 responses from more than 4,000 women who work in escort agencies in the United States and Canada.
The results were presented at a conference on sex work and the escort industry in Toronto this week.
The conference, sponsored by the Canadian Association of Professional and Technical Counselors (CAPTCHA), was focused on providing resources for sex workers and advocates who are working to change the way sex workers are treated in the criminal justice system.
“The way we’re treating women in the escort business is not just a negative stereotype,” says Holly Rolfe, the president and CEO of CAPTCHA.
“It’s actually one of the biggest barriers to women in our society getting any kind of employment.”
The survey also surveyed the women about what it means to be an escort, and how the industry is different from other jobs.
The findings are outlined below.
The survey was created to help women understand how different escort work is from other womens-only work, says Haddadd.
Haddad says the survey provides an opportunity for women to get to know each other, as well as to share experiences with others who have worked in the business.
“It’s really an opportunity to say, ‘Hey, this is how I’m doing my job,'” she says, noting that the survey also helped the women better understand how other women in their field are doing it.
“There are so many different roles and responsibilities in escorting, and it’s so different,” she adds.
“So I think the most important thing is to not assume that you know everything there is to know about this.
And to be honest, the only thing I can say is that the information is there.”
According to Haddadas research, the majority of escort women in Canada work as housekeepers, housekeepers’ assistants, housekeeping assistants, maids, or housekeepers.
These roles vary, depending on the location and type of job, and also include housekeeping in hotels, bars, restaurants, and in other types of establishments.
The majority of escorts work in the daytime, and most of them work in large houses.
Most escort workers are women, but some are men.
Some women work in brothels, while others work as massage therapists.
The industry is booming in the U.S., with more than 1,300 escort agencies operating in New York, California, Nevada, Florida, Ohio, Massachusetts, and Virginia.
In Canada, there are more than 500.
According to Rolfes research, escort agencies typically hire an average of 30 women, and they typically require around 10 to 15 hours of training.
There are more positions for men than for women, as there are opportunities for more experience.
Women working in escort work for the first time is not an easy choice, according to Ralfe.
She says the profession has been “a double-edged sword” for women for years.
“In the beginning, there were so many things that women had to be careful of, especially the things that were associated with the profession,” she explains.
“I think a lot has changed in the last 15 years.”
Haddads says that the industry has changed from its roots as a place for women looking for a safe haven and a safe way to meet someone to a place where men are required to take care of a woman.
“Now that women are coming in, we’ve seen that a lot more men are stepping into the space, because of the way they interact with each other and their own needs,” she said.
