When I first became a professional companion, I really didn’t know zip about this business. I had about as much knowledge about it as the average layperson, which is to say, I had some very, very inaccurate ideas about how it all worked.
Escorting in the US: The Wild Wild West
One thing I noticed was that the escort agencies in the US (especially in Louisiana) are, by and large…I’m not sure how to say this nicely…a little…unpolished? Seriously. Google “escort agencies in New Orleans” and then compare that to, say, “Models Escort Agency” (“High Class Escorts in Sydney”) and “Select Sydney Escorts” (“A Discreet Personal Service Just for You”), both located in Sydney, Australia. Big difference. Apparently, in places where escort agencies aren’t shady operations but legit businesses that must produce a quality experience in order to compete, they put a little more effort into the image they project to prospective clients.
See, I didn’t even realize independent escorts existed. I figured everyone worked for escort agencies, and that was that. So, I googled around, found an escort agency in New Orleans, contacted the manager, and started working.

So I was talking to my friend Lydia in London…
OK, I just have to stop here and admit how worldly I feel when I actually put that in writing. It’s not like I don’t have friends in other parts of the world–I still talk to a guy I met when I did a summer abroad in grad school who is now a doctor in India, and a British girl I met waaaayyy back when I visited Spain who now lives in Italy, just to name a couple. It’s just so rare that I get to name-drop them for worldliness cred, hahahah. I love the internet for a LOT of reasons, but I think one of the biggest ones is the fact that it makes it so easy to keep in touch with–or even meet and befriend–people who live tens of thousands of miles away, and to see what life is like where they are.
Which brings me to the point of this post…sort of.
So anyway, as I was saying, my friend Lydia (an escort in London) and I were talking about some of the differences between the escort (or professional companion or provider or whatever term you prefer) biz here in the U. S. and over there in the U. K. I won’t bore you with all the details, especially since you likely have a pretty good idea, if you know anything about the U. K. And if you don’t, an observant reader can probably figure it out by looking through her her website.
…Which is what I did. And then I started to read her escort blog. And since I’m kind of new at this whole blogging thing, I decided to use one of her blog posts as inspiration for mine.
So, without further ado, I present to you, inspired by a post on Lydia’s blog…
