Professional escorts are not only in the business of sex but have other specialized fields as well. For example, a professional escort may work as a masseuse, a clown, a personal trainer, a tutor, a psychic, a lawyer, a nurse, an airplane stewardess, a dancer, a bodyguard, or any other specialized job that requires extensive training and practice to perform. Personal escorts are especially sought after by those who are trying to find fulfilment outside the normal parameters of their home life. Nude escorts are particularly sought after by younger men (since most young men are unable to find someone they can sleep with without being questioned about their past relationships), while older women seek out older male escorts who can teach them about the finer points of lovemaking, since many women are not familiar with these skills.
While all three types of escort services offer a similar type of sexual services, they differ greatly in the way they arrange the meetings between their clients and their escorts. A typical nude or private meeting (sometimes referred to as an “interrogation” or “survey”) usually consists of the escort selecting a blindfolded subject (the “surveyor”), locating inappropriate “don’t ask, don’t tell” signs, and holding the sign firmly above the subjects’ head for several minutes. The escorts then approach the subjects and attempt to establish a physical relationship with them. While most nude or private escorts will know how to perform a “survey”, there may be instances where a non-nude (or even semi-nude) may need to lead the surveyor through the process. Some nude or private escorts will also perform oral sex on the surveyor; this is typically referred to as a “facial” or “bodily” sex and may not always involve condoms. While most adult escorts will perform safe sex, it is important to remember that no matter what type of sexual activity occurs between the parties, it is still sexual activity, and consenting to and receiving from another human being is required for it to be legal.
Public or street prostitution is the most common type of escorts in question. When women and men seek out these services, they typically do so because they are unhappy with their current romantic situation or relationship. Street prostitution is also very easy to trace; most police officers have a thorough record of criminal activity, and most of the women and men involved in this kind of sexual exchange are known to have many different criminal records. However, in most instances of public sexual conduct, police rarely make any arrests, since most of the women and men are aware that they are being videotaped. The use of hidden cameras in public places, such as stores and banks, has helped to reduce the amount of exposure to pornography that would otherwise have occurred. This has also led to an overall decline in reported street sexual assaults and rapes across the country.
Private female escorts can be beneficial for some people, since they provide a form of security. They may not require the same freedoms and protections that the “average” street girl or man would, since they will often be traveling alone. Additionally, they will not be under the watchful eye of other people; they will often work with the discretion of the client. However, being a “dominatrix” or “whore” may be preferable for some men and women who are uncomfortable with certain social dynamics in public life.
While there are both negative and positive aspects to both forms of sexual services, the former does tend to carry a slightly lower stigma than the latter. While the two situations may have similar outcomes, they are two different kinds of crime. The former tends to draw the most negative attention from the general public and the press, while the latter is not so widely publicized.
