Lesbian escorts...?
« on: May 30, 2009, 04:09:23 PM »
Hey folks... long time lurker, first time poster.

A friend recently told me of her intriguing past as a lesbian escort in London. Now, I am not unfamiliar with the world of sex work. As a broke postgrad student in a community of struggling queer artists and musicians, such forms of employment are fairly commonplace. But according to my friend, the strippers, Dominatrices, and bisexual escorts of my aquaintance represent only part of the picture.
Apparently, several bars in soho were, not too long ago, known to be places where rent girls congregated, and lady johns went to pick them up. I also remember reading lots of articles, about 5 years ago about 'the rise of the lesbian escort'.

My question is, where are they now? Does this world still exist? Was anybody a part of it at the time? And how did it escape my attention?

@Valerie
Oh absolutely, its not that I find the idea surprising, just that I thought I knew my way around town!

Also, most people I know that have done any kind of escorting work usually have almost all male clients, with the odd male/female couple, and very occasional single female clients. The idea that there was at one time a large enough lesbian client base to justify having bars to cater for them, as well as the fact that this market seems to have disappeared (or at least fragmented) is what intrigues me.

I've always thought of lesbian escorts as an urban myth! If anyone, just the occasional one or two here and there, but certainly not bars full of them.  :o

Women don't tend to pay for sex.  I have known escorts who are themselves lesbians, and also bisexual women, both of whom had the ocassional female client.  However, if you try to make a living on female clients only you had better pick out a nice doorway on the Strand and find a cardboard box...

Consensus so far appears to disbelieve that lesbian escorts en masse exist at all, then?

I had a friend twenty years ago that worked in a lesbian brothel when she was short of money to pay the rent but generally it's not a big market. Part of the enjoyment for men is they believe that the women are enjoying the sex and also they have an expectation that women are there to service them (though the women in their real life probably don't). I think women tend to be less delusional.

I guess that would cut out a whole bunch of female customers, for sure. There must be some that enjoy paying for it though? Like a power thing?

Maybe you should do a poll.

That sounds very technical.
