This Quora page has an anonymous sex worker sharing 20 secrets of the escort business.
The page is from September of last year, but it is insightful and has the ring of authenticity.
Maybe not accuracy in terms of estimates on the portion of married men who stray (the author estimates “95% of men are satisfied and don’t stray from their wives” whereas research shows a pretty consistent infidelity rate of about 16% in the US over the past 30 years), but she clearly knows her own business.
There is also a question of to what extent thus represents larger perceptions among sex workers and to what extent it is the personalized experience of one person. Sometimes she cops to the latter (doesn’t like anal), and even separates herself categorically from others (as being lazy, for example), but otherwise she seems to use her own experiences to make broad generalizations.
Regardless, the article is interesting, especially in how it reveals the ability of an escort to re-invent herself, going right at a preconception that a long career as an escort simply is not possible.
Well worth the read.
