Wait, But Why? Escort Screening & Verification 101 for Newbies



I’ve written at length about the “how” of escort screening. Right now I’m going to write a little about the “why.”

(Preface: Sometimes I get carried away. If you’re in a rush, you don’t want to hear about my love of 3-legged dogs and my hatred of mayonnaise, and you just want to be reassured that we’re not performing weird witchcraft rituals with your info or selling it to spammers for .0000000001 cent, scroll on down. I assure you, I DO have a point…)



For the Newbies…

This one’s for all the newbies out there ;)

My thoughts on “No Black Men” and “NBA (No Blacks Allowed)” policies


A few weeks ago, I received the following email:


Good evening Miss Calhoun,

Due to my work I am fortunate enough to be regular visitor to this very lively and storied city of New Orleans. I find its culture and social diversity incredibly inspiring and refreshing. Unfortunately I’ve also found that the city’s acceptance of cultural cooperation and sundry comes to a towering road block when one begins exploring the possibility of retaining a provider. Being relatively new but not completely green to these kind of arrangements I became quickly aware of the circumspection many providers have with concern to dealing with black men, particularly younger black men. I’ve speculated a great many possibilities as to why; knowing many black men having an almost innate instinct to haggle I’d placed that as the primary nuisance. Nevertheless it can be quite dispiriting when delving in attempting to find an adequate match and you see on ad after ad “No Black Men” or “No Black Men” followed by some specific age provision.

Now Miss Calhoun this is not an indictment of you whatsoever and I hope you haven’t taken my note as one to this point. I simply stumbled across your well written blog and had chosen to address you as you seem more than capable of giving me sufficient response.
Continue reading “My thoughts on “No Black Men” and “NBA (No Blacks Allowed)” policies”

See you soon!


Hello Lovelies!

I’m sorry to say I will not be scheduling any appointments until mid-November, as I’ve recently had minor surgery, and I want to make sure I’m 100% before I give 100%.

So, for those of you who I’m scheduled to see soon–we’re still on! And for those of you who were thinking of asking me out within the next two weeks, I’ll need to take a rain check. My loss. :(

But!! I do have several wonderful, gorgeous, unique, fun friends in the area, and if you’d like me to recommend one who is available while I’m not, feel free to ask. I’d love to know you’ve had fun, even if I’m not the one who’s to blame for it! ;)

Concierge: Where to Wine and Dine a Date in New Orleans



This page is a work in progress. Recommended restaurants, cocktail lounges and bars, hotels, and general New Orleans-y things coming soon!

Restaurants


French Quarter Restaurants — The Big Four

There are, of course, the four classic New Orleans Creole restaurants, the ones that are “musts” when you visit the city: Antoine’s, Arnaud’s, Galatoire’s, and Broussard’s, all of which are in the French Quarter.

  • Antoine’s is arguably the most famous. If I’m not mistaken, it’s also the oldest continually-operating restaurant in the US (it opened in 1840). Menu
  • Arnaud’s has two sides: the more relaxed Jazz Bistro room with live Jazz music (a trio comes to play at individual tables), and a more formal, dressier side (the Main Dining Room). Menu
  • Galatoire’s opened in 1905, and was a favorite of Tennesse Williams, who mentioned it in his play A Streetcar Named Desire: Menu
  • Broussard’s: Broussard’s is great, but I’ve heard that they’re especially slow and kind of hit-or-miss lately. Menu
Also in the French Quarter/Downtown area:

  • French cuisine–well, more like creative fusion: Restaurant August This is a John Besh restaurant, so it kinda has to be good. When I was there, I had a really unique version of shrimp creole–it was unlike any shrimp creole I’ve ever had. But I knew that when I chose it; our waiter explained that it was inspired by the NOLA favorite, but recreated as an homage to the sizeable Vietnamese population in the city, with an emphasis on ingredients traditionally used in Vietnamese cooking. It was amazing. Menu
  • American: Lüke, another John Besh restaurant, is on Saint Charles Avenue. Menu
  • The Grill Room is inside the Windsor Court, and though I’ve never been there, I’ve heard good things. Menu (Just a warning: their website has music on autoplay)
  • Seafood: I always hear people talking about Drago’s on Poydras, and they were voted the Best Seafood Restaurant in Gambit’s Best of New Orleans issue.
  • Irene’s–Irene’s is a favorite. Who doesn’t love good Italian food with a New Orleans touch? The menu changes often, but it’s always fantastic.
  • I just had a spectacular dinner at Maximo’s Italian Grill, which has been at that some location on Decatur Street for as long as I can remember. I had the Pasta Rosa, which exceeded my expectations (I really wasn’t expecting to be so impressed by a pasta and shrimp dish, but WOW.).
  • There’s always Domenica.  And 2pm-5pm is their Happy Hour, haha.
  • Adolfo’s in the Marigny is a local favorite–great food in an intimate setting, overlooking Frenchmen Street. Menu here.
  • Richard Fiske’s Martini Bar: It’s not just martinis! Though, if you love a great martini (dirty gin martinis are my fave), you should check it out. I had dinner there back in February, and I was definitely impressed (and yes, the martinis were impressive, too). The menu changes, so be sure to check it if you want to get a head start.
  • Bayona
  • Sylvain
  • Cafe Adelaide
Uptown:

  • Commander’s Palace
  • Coquette – This is a wonderfully bright little place uptown with light entrees, great drinks, and an atmosphere that is somehow simultaneously sophisticated and down-to-earth. Try it for lunch on a beautiful day, and sit by the window!
Other

Let me know if there’s something in particular you think you’ll be in the mood for (Steak? Seafood? Italian? Japanese?) and I’ll recommend a place!

Cocktails

Stuff to Do

  • If you’re looking for entertainment and you’re willing to define “history” a little more loosely than a university professor might, I’d go with a walking tour from Haunted History Tours. They’re held at night, there are stops at a few bars, and the tour guides are entertainers in their own right–they tell the stories with a heavy dose of theatrics, and it works. I’d recommend this one especially during the summer because it’s a night tour–summer is brutal here, and the last thing you’ll want to do is walk around in the heat.

Rates: For Couples or Pairs

Even Better Together: Dates with Couples or Pairs

Being invited to be intimate with a couple (as long as both partners are informed and eager*) is something I find highly erotic. I am honored to help both individuals explore their sexuality, their adventurousness, their fantasies, and the special bond they share–which will hopefully be even more sexually charged after I’ve left!

The following are my rates for couples (or for friends who simply feel more adventurous together):

  • 1 hour: $600
  • 90 minutes: $700
  • 2 hours: $850
  • 3 hours: $1150
  • Extended Date (up to 5 hours): $1650

Screening
As I do with any client, I require some screening before we meet. Please check the list of screening options on my Booking page. For a detailed explanation of why I do this, see here and here.

If I’m meeting with a man and woman who are in a long term relationship (marriage, long-term boyfriend and girlfriend, etc.), I prefer to chat with the “better half” (the lovely lady!) at some point before the appointment so that she and I can go over certain specifics about what should and should not happen during our time together. This helps to avoid any complications or dissatisfaction with our rendezvous, and it helps me get a good idea of how to please both partners.

Please place the honorarium in plain view, preferably in a plain white envelope, before I arrive.

My Screening Practices Explained, Part 3: Scheduling a Date with an Escort & Providing References

**This is Part 3 of a three-part series explaining some of the most common screening methods escorts, providers, and other adult entertainers use to ensure safety and discretion with clients.**


“Can I use you as a reference?”

So yesterday I received an email from a client I had an absolutely amazing time with a few weeks back. This gentleman was inquiring as to whether he could use me as a reference. For those of you who aren’t that familiar with how providers and clients meet each other safely, or how we know if we even want to meet each other (i.e., will we be compatible?), allow me to explain.

Providers use many, many methods of screening (I’ve written two pretty extensive blog posts on the screening methods I use: My Screening Practices Explained – Part 1 and Part 2 – P411, Date-Check, and References.). When you schedule a date with a provider (escort, personal/professional companion, FBSM/sensual massage provider, etc.), she may ask you (the hopeful client) for “references.” What she’s asking for is permission to contact providers you have met with previously (usually two or three of them).

Why do we ask for this? Well, here’s the thing: women talk. (So do men, of course, but I haven’t interacted with many male providers, unfortunately. I’d love hear their perspective on this, though.) And in this business, we look out for each other–or at least, those of us who are decent human beings do. So, before we meet with a client, we like to consult each other to make sure the guy is safe and respectful. And sometimes, just sometimes, we might get a few insider tips on what that client really enjoys. ;)

This isn’t very different from “real-life” dating. We all exist within social circles. In the past, whenever I’ve been “romantically” (or simply sexually) interested in someone, I’ve consulted with mutual friends to get the scoop on him/her. And boy, have I dodged some bullets. But my behind-the-scenes detective work (if you can call asking a friend “So, what’s the deal with so-and-so?” “detective work”) has also led to some truly amazing, satisfying romantic encounters, relationships, and friendships.

So, when I received the following email from this gentleman (copy/pasted, in part):

Accolades, Fan Mail, and Praise

I’ve been thinking of doing this for a while. I occasionally receive gifts and/or flattering emails from readers of my blog. Some are potential or former clients; some are simply folks who either stumbled upon my site accidentally while perusing other sites or found it while searching for tell-all blogs full of racy stories written by professional companions (if you read this blog regularly, you know that’s not what they found here, haha).

Anyway, these generous gifts and thoughtful emails always brighten my day (or week, as it were). And, ya know, I don’t want to brag…well, yes I do. So, I thought I’d share a few with you.

Hi Annie! :)

My name’s ____…and no, this isn’t what you think. I am a hobbyist and have more than a few references that can vouch for what kind of gentleman I am…

I just started reading your blog and really enjoy it. (Insert semi-identifying info about this gentleman’s connection to New Orleans).

Hopefully I’m not wasting your time with this email. Obviously, it would be difficult for us to schedule time together because of our distance issue. I am hoping, however, that I may call you a “blog friend” and fellow New Orleanian and continue to enjoy your writings. Maybe someday in the near future, a meeting could take place.

Until then, thank you for the enjoyable blogging, and stay safe.

Hi Annie,

I hope this message finds you well and in good spirits.

Up front, with 2 kids in out of state private colleges to the tune of
100K a year, I’m not a potential customer…I feel like it would be
taking something away from them if I was. I just wanted to share a few
thoughts.

Anyway, I divide the world up into two groups of people. Interesting
and not very interesting. Money, power, or social status have nothing
with my decisions, you are either interesting or not.

Well, Annie, YOU are interesting.

I read your blog with great interest….it’s painfully obvious you are
well educated, mannered, have interest in history, (The Blue Books
reminded me of going thru my grandfathers things when we sold the
house on _____ St., I thought initially it was a social register for
the elite!) Like myself, I think you are interested in people, who
they are, where they came from background wise, and how they became
the way they are today.

With that being said, I am saying goodbye. My fantasy with you is not
sexual, but to sit down and have a conversation. I sense we could talk
for hours!

P.S. You also have a great sense of fashion

Add me to the fan club!

Hi Annie.

My other half sent me your site today wanting me to see such a gorgeous companion in our favorite city to visit that we are returning to soon.

Scrolling through I enjoyed your wit, wondered if you would be around when we are in town next month, etc..

Then I came to your blog…

You had me at Bellocq!!! HAHA. No, really! I searched high and low for that book (just as you did!!!).. From leading book auctions and brokers to eBay and Amazon. Every copy I came across was not up to my standards or was CRAZY money and still not up to my standards! Finally about a year ago I received a call from a deal broker in the quarter and he had found one. It was Christmas in October at my house, and even a year later that collection of photos has its own little nest in the middle of my coffee table. The funny thing is, I love to brag about my book of Storyville prostitutes. Even to my grandparents, which is a little odd… Now the search is on for a real (not reproduction) Blue Book. Not an easy find either!

So, back to your blog…

After smiling because I found a kindred in your posts I found that there is so much that I enjoyed on your blog, and it spoke to me!!! From why at 16 did we all think that Cosmo was cool to favorite books, you had me hooked!!!!

I truly wish you amazing luck and happiness and hope you know that you so made my day, from 1000 miles away!

Have a wonderful day!

Hey there

Hi Annie,

I’m writing to tell you how much I enjoyed reading through your website. Not only do you actually write a blog, but I loved seeing your goodreads list. You seem like a truly unique woman in this business.

I’m not looking for company this week while I am in town, but I had to drop a line to tell you how much I enjoyed your site. It was a breath of fresh air.

Thanks,

Sometimes I feel like when I’m writing this blog I’m sending posts out into a void: a vast and empty space on the internet where no one actually reads anything, they simply click around in search of free photos and spammable email addresses. And because I rarely receive comments (hint, hint–I love comments, people. I even have it set so that you can leave them anonymously, jeez.), it’s easy to convince myself more and more often that that is the case. So, it’s always nice when someone drops me a line to let me know I’m wrong ;)

I would be ashamed to admit how many courtesan/escort websites I have
perused (and admittedly judged). You have done a magnificent job of
arranging yours. It is one of the few that I’ve seen that is FUN to
explore. From the alluring photos that make you a very desirable woman
to trying to guess where the photos taken, it rates as one of the
best. Your personality flows from page to page.

When I sent the link to my girlfriend, her reply was “She’s Funny!”.
High praise from someone who is difficult to impress.

My Screening Practices Explained – Part 1: Just Google Me, Baby!

**This is Part 1 of a three-part series explaining some of the most common screening methods escorts, providers, and other adult entertainers use to ensure safety and discretion with clients.**

I didn’t want to have to do this, but…


I’m often contacted by potential clients who seem to be a bit perplexed by my screening practices. I know that they may seem odd to some, but as I’ve said elsewhere, this is a necessary process. Now, you’ve probably either already noticed–or have been directed to–my list of accepted screening methods on my FAQ page and my Booking Page. But just to reiterate, here it is again:

Screening


Screening is required for all new friends. I accept the following methods of verification (choose one):

  • -2 provider references (links to her ad or site, and email), OR
  • -Employment Verification: Your full (real) name, the name of your employer, and your company email or direct phone number, OR
  • -If you’re on P411, you may contact me through my P411 profile.
  • -I accept Date-Check as part of my screening process.


Most clients who are sincerely interested in meeting with me understand that, by employing these methods, I am both ensuring my safety and prioritizing discretion, and they are therefore happy to supply this information.

However…


Lately I’ve gotten a number of emails from clients who tell me to simply Google their names. I’ve typed up several polite, well-thought-out explanations as to why this is not an acceptable substitute for my screening process, some of which were met with understanding and acquiescence, others of which were never answered. So, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve left my reasoning ambiguous, and I might better serve my clients by explaining what may seem to be an arbitrary list of requirements here.

“Here’s my name. Just Google me, Baby!”


The suggestion, “Just Google me” may seem logical to a client. After all, he may Google his name and find out even more than he’d like me to know, and therefore believe that the info on Google is more than sufficient.

But it’s not. First off, remember that I’ve got a couple Master’s degrees under my belt, so I’m well-versed in research methods, and if Google covered all aspects of client-screening, trust me, I’d be teaching classes on it.

Yes, I can find out a lot about a person just by using Google (probably more than most people realize). The problem arises when I need to verify that I am actually speaking with the person I’m Googling.

Here’s an example of a typical email exchange with a “Just Google me!” client:

  • To: Annie@NOLAcourtesan.com
    From: BobRoss1965@gmail.com
    Subject: Appointment with you tonight
    Message:

    Hey Annie,

    My name is Bob Ross. You may have heard of me. I’m a painter, and I used to have my own TV show. Remember “happy little trees?” Yeah, I started that whole thing. Anyway, I want to meet with you tonight. I know it’s short notice, but I’m sure you can accommodate a slick guy like me.

    Talk to you soon,

    Bob Ross the TV Painter

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for contacting me. While I’d love to meet with you, I have not yet received your screening information, and I’m afraid I can’t schedule an appointment with you until I do. Please review the accepted screening methods I’ve outlined on my Booking page.

    Thanks again,

    Annie

    Annie,

    I did see that list of screening methods, but like I told you, I’m Bob Ross, and all you have to do is Google me. There’s tons of info about me on the internet. I’m a very important person.

    Bob Ross, the TV Painter

  • ——————————————————-

  • To: BobRoss1965@gmail.com
    From: Annie@NOLAcourtesan@gmail.com
    Subject: RE:RE:RE: Appointment with you tonight
    Message:

    Hi again, Bob.

    I did in fact Google your name. Despite the fact that I do indeed see a lot of information related to Bob Ross, I can’t be sure you are actually him until I’m able to use an email or phone that is traceable to you.

    What I need is an email address that is associated with you publicly and professionally. For instance, if you work for PBS, and the PBS website lists Bob Ross’s email address as BobRoss@PBS.org, that will work perfectly. You can either shoot me a quick email from that account, or I can contact you through that address and you can reply that you’ve received that message. Then, I’ll know that you are really Bob Ross, the TV Painter.

    Alternatively, you can supply a phone number that is traceable to you. Let’s use the PBS example. PBS lists Bob Ross’s office contact number as (504)555-5555. I can call that number and ask to speak to Bob Ross, and all you have to say is “Yes Annie, it’s me,” and I’ll know I’ve been emailing back and forth with the right guy. However, if you only supply me with a phone number for a prepaid phone, or a number that, when Googled, is not attached to your name or business, that doesn’t really help me.

    And if neither of those methods works for you, you can also provide references (names and contact info or websites) from two established professional companions/providers/escorts you’ve met with in the past. I’ll contact them to make sure you’re safe and a gentleman. When they respond positively, I’ll get back to you and we can set up an appointment.

    Thanks for understanding, Bob! Hope to hear from you soon.

    Annie

In this hypothetical, I’m betting Bob doesn’t respond, lol.

I hope this clarifies things. If not, maybe I can show you what I mean with a little example. Let’s pretend this is the first time we’ve encountered one another. Here’s what I’ll say to you:

My name is Julia Roberts. You may have heard of me. I’m an actress–a pretty famous one. Go ahead and Google me; you’ll see lots of information about me and what I do. Now you should feel 100% confident that I’m Julia Roberts, the famous actress who is not dangerous or creepy.

Signed,

Absolutely, Positively, Without-a-Doubt, the Real Julia Roberts®

Now you can be 100% confident you’ll be meeting with Julia Roberts, right? ;)

OK so that’s a pretty ridiculous example, but the truth is, you’d be surprised how often random weirdos on the internet have contacted me claiming to be high-profile local businessmen or surgeons or whathaveyou. You might seem like a reasonable, respectful guy, but I can never be too careful with my safety.

Thanks so much in advance for understanding!

**

By the way:


If you do choose the professional email address route, and you’re concerned about my email address raising a red flag with your employer, I’ve got a solution. When I use this method, I use a separate, unassuming email address (the word “courtesan” is absent, so this email address doesn’t sound sexy.)

Here’s a copy of the email I send:

Please respond to this message for verification purposes.
If you are not the person who requested this message, please reply to this message with the word ‘Remove,’ or simply disregard.

Thank you,

AC

My Screening Practices Explained, Part 2: P411, Date-Check, and References


and

Scheduling a Date with an Escort – On Providing References


Contact

Scheduling a Date

If you are ready to make an appointment, please first check my Booking page for details.

I do not meet with everyone who contacts me–that would be nearly impossible, as I receive quite a few emails a day. Scheduling is a complicated matter, as we both have lives, complete with responsibilities and prior obligations. The best way to ensure that I will be able to meet with you is to complete the form below (or provide the same info in an email).


Screening and Discretion

If you are not willing to provide screening information, I will not meet with you.

I have written lengthy explanations of why I screen and how I use these methods to ensure my safety. If you are wary of screening, please read through that info first. I understand you want to be discreet. I have never encountered a client who said to me, “Annie, I just don’t care about discretion. I love escorts, and by George, I’m gonna yell it from the rooftops!!” If I do meet a client who tells me that, I will run the other way. Because guess what? I want to be discreet ;)


Before you ask…

Please do not send me an email asking if I’m “in town” or “available” next Wednesday. I live here. I’m always in town. And if you’ve contacted me a few days in advance, then yes, I can be available. Please, please, please send as much info as possible (date, time, location, your name, your screening info). If everyone did that, I’d be able to confirm appointments almost immediately, and it would save me at least 10 hours (literally) a week.

You can reach me through this form, or you can simply email me directly at nolacourtesan@gmail.com.


Remember, I do accept P411 as part of my screening process!

                 Annie Calhoun, NOLA Courtesan on Preferred411.com

F. A. Q.

Do you know any escorts in my city? Who do you recommend?

I know reputable providers all across the US and beyond.

I’ll be in New Orleans for a few days. Where should I eat?

With or without a date, there are a few places I know of that I’m pretty sure you’ll love.

I have a general question about the escorting business/visiting escorts/”the hobby”. What do I do if–

Hold up, buddy. You’re in the wrong place. Go here.

What made you decide to become a professional companion?New Orleans Escort and Sophisticated Professional Companion Annie Calhoun - NOLA Courtesan

I get this one a lot. Honestly, it’s pretty simple: While I value my educational achievements, they weren’t in the most lucrative of fields.  When I realized that I just wasn’t cut out for the life of a starving artist (I enjoy great food way too much!). I knew I needed to think outside the box. I’ve always been very outgoing and at ease with people (not to mention adventurous), so I decided to give this a try, and I really liked it. The rest is history!

Do you maintain an incall location?

At this time, I cannot host, but I am happy to meet you at your hotel or home. I know that discretion is of utmost importance to you, and so I understand if you do not want a hotel charge showing up on your credit card bill. But please don’t let something like that stop you from scheduling a date with me–I’m happy to arrange accommodations for us if you can provide me with an additional advance deposit of $200 to cover the cost of the room. I accept advance deposits; let me know if you’re interested in this option and I’ll provide you with details.

Do you require any screening?

Educated Elite Escort in New Orleans
Yes. I accept the following methods of verification (choose at least one option):

  • 2 provider references (links to her ad or site, and email)
  • ~OR~

  • Employment Verification:
    Your name
    Name of your employer
    Your company email or phone number
  • ~OR~

  • If you’re on P411, that works, too!
  • ~AND~

  • Update: I no longer use Date-Check.com / Date-Check.net (and here’s why).
  • More options (involving LinkedIn, Facebook, and personal websites/blogs) available under special circumstances only.

*I know RS-AVS is another screening tool used in some areas, but unfortunately, they don’t have a customer base here in NOLA yet, and I don’t think they plan to anytime soon (also, they refer to this region as the “Lower Midwest”–wtf?).

For a thorough explanation of my discreet screening process and why and how I use the methods I do, please see My Screening Methods: All you ever wanted to know about why and how I screen my clients.

Why don’t you post your phone number?


Oh wow. I learned my lesson the hard way with that one! In short, I’m not a fan of 4 AM lewd phone calls, relentless debt collectors looking for someone I’ve never heard of, and text messages that go nowhere. Instead, I prefer to first communicate through email, and we can confirm by phone once you’ve passed my screening.

Update: I currently have my phone number posted, and for the most part, it’s going OK. Perhaps you boys have learned to behave yourselves since the last time I tried this? ;)

Is there anyone you will not see?


Well, of course! I’m very selective, preferring quality over quantity, and I’m very cautious and discreet. Before we meet, my priority is my safety and peace of mind. Once I feel confident that we’re a good match, my priority is your pleasure.

As for “type,” I do not discriminate based on race, nationality, age, religion gender identity, body type, ability/disability, etc. Each client is an individual–one I’m eager to please.

I found you on Eros.com.  The website on your ad is AnnieCalhoun.com.  But when I clicked on it, I came here, to NOLAcourtesan.com.  What’s going on?

Well aren’t you perceptive!  I know it’s weird, but I have two domain names that come to the same website.

When I started building this website, I chose the name NOLAcourtesan.com.  Then I realized Eros doesn’t allow the word “courtesan” to appear anywhere in its ads.  It’s a shame, really, because I love the word “courtesan.”  It just sounds so cool, and it has a certain mystique about it.  I mean, why have an “escort” when you can have a “courtesan”?  (I admit, I’m a sucker for a cool-sounding word.)  Well, when I realized that was the case, I decided to buy a second domain with just my name–AnnieCalhoun.com–and redirect it here.  Voila!  Aren’t I a clever girl?!

This is also the reason why, even though I’ll probably email you from Annie@NOLAcourtesan.com or NOLAcourtesan@gmail.com, I have AnnieCalhoun.NOLA@gmail.com listed on Eros.  I thought it would be a real pain, but luckily, I can forward them all to one address and kind of juggle from there, haha.

Update:I now have a bunch of other domain names (including NewOrleansCourtesan.com and New-Orleans-Escort.com), so as long as you’re here reading this, even if you got here from a link that didn’t say NOLAcourtesan.com, you’re in the right place ;)

What’s the deal with tipping?


Tips are greatly appreciated, but NEVER required. I will never ask for a tip–how awkward! The rates you see under “Booking” are for my time, and my goal during our scheduled appointment is to ensure your satisfaction. So if your expectations are exceeded? Fantastic! I don’t expect anything more than the standard price you’ve already paid.

So…what are the “Do”s and “Don’t”s?

  • Do be forthcoming with screening information.
  • Don’t attempt to discuss my rates via email or phone. That information is clearly outlined on my booking page.
  • Do schedule the amount of time you think will be appropriate. If, at the end of our scheduled session, you would like to extend our time together, please be prepared to cover the rate for an additional hour. However…
  • Don’t be disappointed if I cannot extend our session beyond your scheduled time–I have boring, everyday obligations just like anyone else, and sometimes I can’t shirk those duties at the drop of a hat (unfortunately :( ).
  • Do treat me with respect. I am a person and a professional. I accept payment for my time and companionship; I do not sell myself, my rights, my safety, or my boundaries.
  • Don’t send me lewd messages, as I will not respond.
  • Do be proactive: If you are considering scheduling an appointment, please suggest a time and location that is convenient for you.
  • Don’t attempt to discuss activities of a sexual nature with me via phone or email, as I will not respond. I do not accept money for sexual acts. If, upon meeting, we enjoy each other’s company, our friendship will naturally progress from there. I aim to provide an experience that will keep new friends coming back for more ;)
  • Do place the honorarium in plain view, preferably in a plain white envelope, before I arrive.

Do you accept gifts?

Gifts are never expected, but they’re always a wonderful surprise. Any little token you’d like to bring to our meeting will be appreciated. And it doesn’t have to be completely altruistic–if there’s a certain outfit you’d like to see me in, feel free to bring it along!  I am generally a size small or in the 2-4 range. Alternatively, if you’re simply feeling generous, I’m a bibliophile, so a copy of your favorite book will be treasured. Ultimately, the best gift ever would be for my student loans to POOF disappear. However, the next best thing would be for anyone who is sincerely curious to check out my Amazon Wishlist. If you’d like to pick something up last minute, I can never have enough Amazon gift cards, chocolate, or cheap sunglasses!

Do you see women?

Yes; I’m bisexual.

Do you see couples?

Yes!  Being invited to be intimate with a couple, as long as both partners are informed and eager*, is something I find highly erotic.  I am honored to help both individuals explore their sexuality, their adventurousness, their fantasies, and the special bond they share–which will hopefully be even more sexually charged after I’ve left!  The rates listed on my “Booking” page are structured by the hour.  My rates for couples are listed here.

*Please don’t “surprise” your partner unless you’re SURE he/she will appreciate and enjoy the surprise!!

Do you allow reviews?

If you’d like to write a tasteful review of our time together, please feel free to do so.  However, I respect your privacy and I value discretion–please do the same for me!

Are you associated with an agency?

No, I am 100% independent–self employment is awesome!

Where’s your gallery page?

I have photos on each page of my site, and on some of my blog posts.  Take a look around!

Who is your photographer?

All of the photos on this site (unless otherwise specified) were taken by a very dear, very talented friend of mine.  If you’re interested in hiring her, contact me.

About Me

Hello!  I’m Annie, a professional companion (“courtesan,” if you will) and escort in New Orleans. Thanks for your interest, and for visiting my website!  I’m insanely proud of it…mainly because I barely understood what the words “domain” and “server” meant up until a few weeks ago.  So look around!  Make yourselves at home!  And humor me a bit while I describe myself at length, ha.

So here we go: I’m a native New Orleanian, and proud of it.  I am highly educated (Master’s level), I’ve traveled internationally, and I’m bilingual.  **Okay, fine.  I’m fluent in English and I am somewhat proficient in Spanish.  But I’ve lived 6 months (cumulatively) in two Spanish-speaking countries, and I lived to tell the story to my Spanish-speaking neighbors (in Spanish!), so I can claim to be somewhat proficient, right?**  I’ve worked in the arts and education for the past few years, and I continue to work in my field part-time. I am an artist, and I’m currently very, VERY grateful to have the freedom to pursue some of my own projects.

Ok, let’s cut to the chase.  I’m petite (5’4″ and 116 lbs, 30DD-25-34) with short blond hair. I’m 100% honest about my stats–I’ll bet you five dollars they’re accurate (you supply the scale and the tape measure, lol)!  I keep in shape with yoga and short cardio and strength training workouts at the gym a few times a week.  I’m on the slender side (and always have been), but I work hard eating amazing New Orleans food in order to keep myself nice and soft around the edges ;)  I do not smoke, and I am drug free, but I do enjoy an occasional drink.  However, though I am a social drinker, I do not object to non-alcoholic refreshments–I’m a huge fan of “mocktails,” ginger ale, and mineral water.  I don’t like to brag, but I’m gonna:  I’m funny, kind, outgoing, and yes, sexy.  I’m good at finding common ground with people, no matter how seemingly different we are.  I sincerely love what I do, and my aim is to make sure that our time together is fun, relaxing, and memorable–just as any vacation from “real life” should be.

I finished grad school recently, and I’ve been working as a professional companion for about a year and a half.  My day job and the various and sundry obligations of daily life take up a fair amount of my time, and I like to make the most of every encounter.  For these reasons, I have chosen to remain very low-volume, and our time together will always be relaxed and unrushed.  I’m selective when it comes to clients (but I never discriminate based on race/nationality/age/gender/sexuality–just attitude), and I appreciate that you’re selective as well (I’m guessing you wouldn’t have read this far otherwise!).  If you think we might be a good match, please don’t hesitate to contact me; I’d love to hear from you.
