"escort" services

2002-11-15 14:03:46+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Via Arts & Letters Daily, I'd always thought that the "escort" business was a young women's game. I had my horizons broadened a bit by seeing Scarlet Harlot talk at that sex workers' film festival a year or two ago, but old stereotypes die hard. Interesting article by a woman who decides to become an "escort" at 57:

Would I want my daughters to do it? In a word - no. I am new to escorting; but, that admitted, I doubt whether it is a career most women could gain much from (except financially) before they have done many other things that are part of a `normal' woman's life. Being an escort certainly wasn't on my original agenda.
