Dating an escort
The agency will then suggest an escort who might fit that client's need.The agency collects the client's contact information and calls the escort.Escort agencies often recruit individuals to work as escorts by placing employment advertisements in a magazine or newspaper.Escort agencies typically maintain a list of escorts of different ages and appearances to cater to the varying interests of clients.Usually, to protect the identity of the escort and ensure effective communication with the client, the agency arranges the appointment.Sometimes, it may be up to the escort to contact the client directly to make arrangements for the location and time of an appointment.However, under the Policing and Crime Act 2009 it is a criminal offence to pay for services of a prostitute who is controlled for gain if any third party uses force, threat (whether or not relating to violence) or any other form of coercion.
The arm's-length relationship between the escort and the escort agency is designed to protect the escort agency (to some degree) from prosecution for breaking laws against prostitution.Escort agencies claim that they are dispatching these individuals to provide a social or conversational service rather than a sexual service, since prostitution laws often forbid taking payment for sex or communicating for the purpose of arranging a contract for sexual services.Advertisements for escort agencies often carefully skirt the legal line, and avoid specifically offering prostitution or sexual services.The effectiveness of ads in weeklies or specialized sites has been questioned by some operators as there are so many that they are diluted.
Typically, an escort will interview with an agency.
Escort prostitution is one of the forms that the sex trade takes in the United Kingdom, along with prostitution practiced in massage parlors, saunas, private flats (such as the Soho walk-ups) and street prostitution.
