    Probably a stupid question to some of you, but are escrots legal?

    Are they considered as prostitutes?

    I was on a website looking at some of the escort girls in london, they are all so fit, but they are pretty cheap? £150 an hr? i thought they will be like over £400 for an hr.

    Im not planning to get with an escort, im at uni my self so i slept with a few girls anyway, so i dot need escorts, was just wondering.

    Escort girls are prostitutes yes. But "higher class" ones (though that doesn't mean that they don't have issues or are totally thrilled with what they do, Belle de Jour is not an accurate representation of all Escorts).

    I think the way the law is phrased is that prostitutation itself is not legal, but solicitation is.

    Ie. you can sleep with people for money but you cannot go around asking people if they want to sleep with you for money.

    "Kerb-crawling" is also illegal I think, and you could probably be arrested for going around asking women who might be prostitutes if they will sleep with you if you pay them.

    Its not illegal to be a prostitute just illegal to have "brothels" as far as I'm aware and yes escorts are prostitutes. Prositutes are allowed agencys or to advertise and stuff. Not all escorts are higher class either...

    Escorts officially are classed as the same as a companion, a protector etc that sort of thing. Unofficially though we all commonly class escorts as prostitutes.
    You got prostitutes who sell just sex and nothing else.
    Then there's escorts who do basically anything for money if they are ok with doing that-anything.

    Basically, its legal to advertise sex for money like on the internet and only if money is exchanged in an indoor location, so if you meet outside in a car and money is exchanged followed by sex then that is illegal, likewise for any outside activity. Its a very grey area, examples:

    If the guy casually meets a girl in a bar and she say's "sex for money" then that is illegal.
    Same situation but if the guy asks her what she does for a living and she responds with escorting followed by the guy asking "how much money for sex?" then that is illegal. However if he asks her how much money for her time, she responds with a price, discuss what things you both enjoy and where to go his or her place - then that is legal.

    A stripper in a gentlemans club during a private dance; if she tells him (or verbally instigates) she could offer sex for money then that is illegal even if no touching has commenced. However, if they talk like:
    him: any extra's? her: yes sex for money - legal because she didnt approach the subject to him, and legal for him as he could be implying anything not just a sexual act. See how its a grey area? It would then only become illegal if they have sex in the club or outside, so they would have to go back to his or her place for it to all be legal.

    Police dont bother with tracking down said possible examples though, they do if they get wind of things like trafficking, under age, pimping, or things like if a prostitute on the street is being a pest to the local residents.
    The police arnt bothered by the fact if an escort is being a prostitute, what they are bothered about is if she is paying her taxes or not.

    Is it illegal to say that even if your just joking? I always thought it was only illegal to actually do it for money.

    Sometimes, I talk with my male friends hypothetically about them paying me but im not actually going to do it, its just a bit of a turn on. Is it illegal to even say it, even without intention?

    Its known as soliciting, so if the police really really wanted to and had an under cover police man talking to you with a hidden recorder and you said that even as a joke they could arrest you.

    Obviously loads of people joke about it like you said, and prostitution is very common, prisons are full, police are under staffed, that the police just arnt bothered about such examples discussed here.

    Trust me if ur an escort then ur 99% gonna have to have sex & prostitution & escorts are the same thing, Don't do it because the clients stress u out like no other; they get it into their head that your Friend's & then they start wanting too much of you personally; Most Men that pay for 'it' are all from a certain mentality & that is naive and stupid!! They honestly believe that pros/escorts are in the job because we're all nympho's & its like they totally blank out the fact that they have had to pay us for us to be there, some clients may be good looking but once they pay you for sex then can you really look at them in any other way? I was in that trade for year's & I'm now out of it and I am that old cynical & bitter way that old pro's get (and I swore I'd never be 1 of those pro's but I am) where I have started to believe that Men really are all dirty cheating scumbag's who happily exploit women who are down on their luck financially; these men tell themselves 'we women like it' because we fake a few orgasm's etc etc. All escorts & prostitutes are underpaid actresses. If you as Men believe we're in this job for anything other than the cash then you are seriously deluded and ur penis rules your brain OR is ur brain.

    I think theres a fine line though, I have tried sex with 4 escorts over the last year, 1st was a 40 year old lady and she was sweet and caring, actually stayed over the time and text me after saying she had a great time. 2nd one basically gave me a quickie HJ and then spent 10 minutes on her phone and rushed me out even though I paid for a hour, 3rd I talked to and she said she did it as she enjoyed a specific thing (going down on men) but didn't like anything else (though she advertised multiple things) I didn't pressurise her as I want to do things she enjoys. 4th was a girl who didn't seem to want to be there and again made excuses and left despite me paying for a hour and getting 15 minutes she even tried offering me "extras" which I kept refusing and asking how much money I had, I wanted rid of her before it even began but was worried she may of sent the boys round or something, so in general I try and go for actual local girls i.e ones who live in the city rather than "visit" I just want a girlfriend experience and due to autism I cant speak to women normally.

    On the flip side I met 3 girls in different bars in the same city, each was flirty and eyeing me up, very eager in bed, two I slept with on a few occasions, I found out after all 3 were escorts so I found them online and found they were wanting like £70 a hour one even wanted £200 for a overnight stay and said on her profile she enjoys meets in cars the only reason I even slept with them was because they were very flrity and forward with me, money was never mentioned it was just I found them in their actual local, there was another time in same city where I walked into a bar, sat next to a girl and tried to flirt by giving a smile and asking if she knew a cheap local taxi firm, a minute later her friend whispers "she wants to have sex with you"

    I think its more likely there these girls are the local bikes who get a bit of extra money on the side than girls who just need the money.

    I didn't want just sex I wanted companionship and for them to be comfortable around me, i'd rather they said straight away they didn't want to have sex with me and they could of either gone or I would at least paid them some money for their time

    So its different for everyone.

    Its no wonder you're anon.

    You should go and find a girlfriend if you want companionship, not pay for it from someone who could care less about you.

    Ok, lets see you try that when you are autistic and struggle to speak to someone.

    I even tried online dating but every time they found out I had disabilities they stopped responding.

    I come across as stupid to people as I stutter and get nervous despite having a mensa level i.q and especially when younger used to get people call me freak just walking past them on street due to my stature and all that.

    Thats not to say I never got female attention, from 17-22 I got girls chat me up but was unable to chat back to them, even girls accidently fall into me then say sorry to start a conversation and was too shy to go further.

    Then you try harder. What you're doing is finding a temporary solution to a permanent problem. Going from one prostitute to another will never make you happy or improve your confidence in the long run. It will do nothing but make you feel lonelier than ever and that is clearly evident because you keep going back to them.

    You don't understand how autism works, I am in my late 20's and only ever in my life had 1 girlfriend who another friend set me up with and she ended up being clingy, possessive, terrible hygine and even then cheated on me.

    I won't be going back to a escort, I just wanted to make sure I was capable of sex, after the 1st time I thought I would try the 2nd time and hated it, so gave it another try and it was ok at best, 4th time was awful.

    If I had a good experience the 2nd time I wouldn't of tried a 3rd time.

    I may be more confident then when I was younger in some ways but also suffer depression so its even harder to meet women especially when most women I meet in clubs are around 18-21.

    Now I know I can do the deed I won't be back.

    Besides I thought it cheaper than meeting a girl in a club, buying drinks for both of us and taxi home and may not even get sex.

    Hi,
    I was really interested in your experiences.

    Apart from the first woman you have clearly been badly treated by these escorts which is a shame.

    I hope you find someone.

    As someone who has slept with approximately 1000 escorts and spend a lot of time getting to know some of them,and even been out socially with a few,I just wanted to point out that ,according to the women themselves,most of the men who pay for escorts could in fact get it elsewhere.

    Of course many of the men are in fact married.(Although where their wives are is a mystery)


    When I was paying for sex very often I found being able to phone up at any time of the night and know that there was an attractive young woman or two on her way to my house very exciting.

    That excitement on its own was worth £40.Maybe as much as £60 come to think of it.

    I've always been most interested in those who live on the edges of society rather than by privileged people.


    Cheers

    I understand exactly what you mean, it's very common for people like yourself to use those services.

    Also a lot of people don't realise that many men visit these women and don't have sex they just want someone to talk to.

    I find it pretty sad to be honest but it is a realistic short term solution for these people.

    Obviously in the medium to long term you should be looking for a partner and you probably know that yourself

    Except for the parts where you paid for one hour and got 10mins HJ and 15mins service, I would like to be like you when I grow up. That's cheating mate. How did you allow yourself to be scammed.

    Im not happy about that. I wont let that happen to me. I hate HJ. Why did you allow that when theres a much better place to rest your big man?

    Find dem *****es and get your change bro.
