shortguybeau saidThere are two reasons I would never do it.
First, it seems to me like it would have a serious impact on any intimacy I could build with a partner.
Second, it seems to me to be one of those things easy to get into and hard to get out of, like the Army, a psych ward or the mafia.
I think some people don't have a lot of choices and I don't judge them for making that choice, but if you have better choices, I don't know why anyone would expose themselves to that.
Your statement is shared with a number of guys that were interviewed for this book I have called Escort, 40 profiles with photographs of men who sell sex by David Leddick and Heriberto Sanchez. Some guys say that they don't seem to be able to leave the industry because they're always on call, and jobs can be far and few between, if you don't leave yourself available 24/7 you don't get paid so it becomes a vicious cycle.
In saying that I have considered escorting at the end of this year to help with debt and to save up for a holiday to the states that a friend wants to go on with me. I think I could do it short term because I live with family so I don't have any bills or rent to pay and I'll be out of my lease on the studio I rent for work. But who knows, that could be the same mindset that some guys have had and it didn't realize what they got into....
