Things You Didn't Know: Escorts
Excellent Article Highlights
Although the thrust of what they offer is basically the same, escorts or call girls can be distinguished as something completely different than prostitutes. Escort services generally restrict their hires to attractive, personable women without visible drug problems. Men who use escort services tend to be far more discerning clients than the typical john, and often enlist escorts for actual escorting services, such as for dinner and drinks, in addition to -- or even in lieu of -- sexual services.

Use of paid sexual services is a more prevalent practice than you think. In 1992, the National Health and Social Life Survey indicated that around 20% of American men paid for sex at least once. And that's probably a slightly low estimate, since there's good reason to believe that some of the survey participants chose not to offer full disclosure. So, though you might have a hard time getting one in five of your friends to admit that they've visited an escort, the sheer volume of sex services advertised on the Internet says otherwise.

- Different countries offer different services
The legality and status of escort services vary according to which country you're in. In Canada, prostitution itself is legal, but street prostitution is discouraged due to the illegality of services surrounding it, such as pimping and negotiating a sex-for-money deal in a public place. That's where escort services come in.

Many other countries have similar regimes, but some countries have prostitution laws that are particularly arcane and nonsensical. For example, it is legal to pay for fellatio, but not for vaginal intercourse in Japan. Most Western European countries have more relaxed prostitution laws -- in fact, in some of these countries prostitution is a positively respectable, mainstream occupation.

A "girlfriend experience" or GFE implies an experience that is more affectionate than the typical "mechanical" sexual encounter. The GFE features a "warm" escort who will engage in such activities as open-mouthed kissing and cuddling -- you know, girlfriend stuff. (Dave notes right on, this is closer to the original definition when I was among the first to use the term before their were websites just newsgroup readers at 300 baud - before the term was perverted to mean unhealthy sex acts)

A myraid of governments have tried to eradicate prostitution by making it illegal and imposing harsh penalties; however, like similar attempts with other vices, such as gambling and drugs, such efforts have consistently failed due to continuous demand. Many men have trouble initiating a relationship, have little time for a relationship or simply enjoy the sexual variety, and escorts have provided an outlet for such desires with a safer, cleaner and more attractive reputation than street prostitutes.

Men will always be interested in sex and certain men will always be interested in paying for it. The rise of the Internet has caused a huge boon to the escort industry. Aside from the obvious safety and cleanliness issues, Internet sites provide johns with a greater choice, an opportunity to preview particular escorts and a modicum of confidentiality. As such, the number of working escorts, as opposed to street or brothel prostitutes, has increased significantly in the past decade.
