5 reasons students should not become escorts
There’s been a bit of a hoo haa in the news about the amount of English students turning to escorting and other jobs in the sex industry to fund their studies. There’s a whole attitude of shame on the sex industry and the people who use it. I think it’s partly to avoid the issue of asking why are students in a position were they are trying to better themselves, but unable to do so because of financial restrictions.
Anyway, for any of you lovely students thinking of doing a spot of escorting here are a couple of reasons as to why you should re-consider your journey into hot steamy adult world of non-stop paid sex with amazingly attractive, rich well spoken people.
- As an escort you don’t always get to pick and choose your clients (punters). More to the point, unlike most businesses where you can get rid of or refuse to deal with an asshole customer on the basis of them being an asshole, and people understanding. As an escort things don’t quite work like this – first of all in society you are pretty low down. Lower than most assholes, so you’ll find sympathy in short supply. Secondly not all escorts are equal. Some escorts (your competition will have been working for years to build up huge client lists and so have the luxury of turning someone away for being a prick. You as a newbie do not have this luxury. You take what you can get!
- Its not like ‘Secret Diary Of A Call Girl’, the hours are erratic, they will interfere with your studies, drinking, episodes of Dexter (or whatever it is that uni students are watching these days). Bottom line is that being an escort is hard work – in the UK at least. To be honest there is an argument to be made that every English university student should become an Escort for at least one term. Just so they get a taste of what real work is like… you know, having to be places on time, keeping track of expenses, dealing with an obnoxious wanker, learning to not hate yourself even if everyone else does…. all the usual full-time day to day work related issues.
- A big part of going to university is socialising and another big part is learning to socialise with people outside of your normal social groups. Socialising does not mean Facebook and Twitter. This is real (sometimes forced) inter-action with people you’d otherwise avoid in the street. If you are doing something that isn’t 100% socially acceptable like say… having sex with people for money, this is going to inevitably result in some awkward situations of trying to explain what you were up to last night… ‘my fist in the lecture’s arse’ is not going to get a nod of approval from too many people. If there is one thing that can polarise a group of people and bring out those hidden puritanical values its the subject of sex for money or enjoyment. Sex for anything other than procreation of social conformity is frowned upon in many western civilisations
- If anyone finds out, everyone on campus will find out. Throw in MyBook and Facespace and every future employer will know. Suddenly this part-time job that you were doing just to avoid books / jagerbombs will become your life time job, unless you decide to change your name and dump all your old friends
- Clients and “Agents” will think that because you are a student they can take the piss. From unreasonable demands to unreasonable fees. Your youthful exuberance will be set upon by a pack of hyenas with opposable thumbs who’ve just found an abandoned limping calf.
