These laws were based on English laws passed between and , and related to soliciting, age restrictions, brothel keeping, and leasing accommodation. Since the s there has been a change toward liberalisation of prostitution laws, though the actual approaches have varied. A May Australian Institute of Criminology report recommended that prostitution not be a criminal offence, since the laws were ineffective and endangered sex workers. Men who had paid for sex were more likely than other men to smoke, to drink more alcohol, to have had a sexually transmitted infection STI or been tested for HIV, to have more sexual partners, to have first had vaginal intercourse before 16, and to have had heterosexual anal intercourse.
Health and safety regulations and peer education have been effective at keeping STIs in the sex worker population at a low level, similar to the general population, and comparable amongst the states Maginn Although there had been claims that sex workers were responsible for STI levels in mining communities, subsequent research has shown this not to be true. The number of people trafficked into or within Australia is unknown. Estimates given to a parliamentary inquiry into sexual servitude in Australia ranged from to 1, trafficked women annually.
Australia did not become a party to the Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others when it was implemented in Australia has also ratified on 8 January the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography , which requires it to prohibit, besides other things, child prostitution.
For the purpose of the Protocol, a child is any human being under the age of 18, unless an earlier age of majority is recognised by a country's law. In all Australian jurisdictions, the minimum age at which a person can engage in prostitution is 18 years, although it is argued against the age of consent, and it is always illegal to engage another in prostitution.
Prior to passage of the Prostitution Act, prostitution policy in the Australian Capital Territory ACT consisted of "containment and control" under the Police Offences Act  This prohibited keeping a brothel, persistently soliciting in a public place, or living on the earnings of prostitution.
This law was not enforced. In a report entitled Prostitution in the ACT: Interim Report Australian Capital Territory was produced by the Select Committee on HIV, Illegal Drugs and Prostitution describing the then state of the industry, the shortcomings of the law, and the possible reforms available. Having considered the example of other Australian States that had adopted various other models, the committee recommended decriminalization, which occurred in the Prostitution Act.
Sex workers may work privately but must work alone. Soliciting remains illegal Section The legal situation was reviewed again with a Standing Committee on Justice and Community Safety's inquiry into the ACT Prostitution Act , following the death of a year-old woman, Janine Cameron , from a heroin overdose in a brothel in The inquiry was established on 28 October Written submissions were required by 26 February at which time 58 submissions had been received.
The Eros Association, which represents the industry also called for removal of registration and for an expansion into residential areas. In the October elections the opposition Liberals campaigned on a platform to oppose allowing more than one sex worker to use a premise in suburban areas  but were not successful in preventing a further term of the ALP Green alliance.
New South Wales NSW has the most liberal legislation on prostitution in Australia, with almost complete decriminalisation, and has been a model for other jurisdictions such as New Zealand. According to a report in the Daily Telegraph , illegal brothels in Sydney outnumbered licensed operations by four to one.
NSW was founded in and was responsible for Tasmania until , Victoria until and Queensland until It inherited much of the problems of port cities, penal colonies, and the gender imbalance of colonial life. Initially there was little specific legislation aimed at prostitution, but prostitutes could be charged under vagrancy provisions if their behaviour drew undue attention. In Commissioner Bigge reported stated there were 20 brothels in Sydney, and many women at the Parramatta Female Factory were involved in prostitution.
The Select Committee into the Condition of the Working Classes of the Metropolis described widespread prostitution. Attempts to pass contagious diseases legislation were resisted, and unlike other States, legislative control was minimal till the general attack on 'vice' of the first decade of the twentieth century which resulted in the Police Offences Amendment Act , and the Prisoners Detention Act.
Street prostitution was controlled by the Vagrancy Act sec. This was strengthened by an amendment of the Police Offences Amendment Act , which also prohibited living on the earnings. The Vagrancy Act was further strengthened in , making it an offence to 'loiter for the purpose of prostitution' sec.
These provisions were then incorporated into the Summary Offences Act , s. In the s an active debate about the need for liberalisation appeared, spearheaded by feminists and libertarians , culminating under the Wran ALP government in the Prostitution Act Eventually NSW became a model for debates on liberalising prostitution laws.
But almost immediately, community pressure started to build for additional safeguards, particularly in Darlinghurst Perkins , although police still utilised other legislation such as the Offences in Public Places Act for unruly behaviour. Eventually, this led to a subsequent partial recriminalisation of street work with the Prostitution Amendment Act , of which s.
This resulted in Darlinghurst street workers relocating Perkins Further decriminalisation of premises followed with the  implementation of recommendations from the Select Committee of the Legislative Assembly Upon Prostitution — Although the committee had recommended relaxing the soliciting laws, the new Greiner Liberal government tightened these provisions further in through the Summary Offences Act in response to community pressure.
The suburbs of King's Cross in Sydney and Islington in Newcastle have been traditional centres of prostitution. New South Wales is the only Australian state that legalises street prostitution. But community groups in those locations have occasionally lobbied for re-criminalisation.
As promised in its election campaign, the Liberal Party sought review of the regulation of brothels. In September , it issues a discussion paper on review of the regulations. Nevertheless, there is no evidence of a negative effect of brothels on the community. Generally prostitution policy in NSW has been bipartisan.
But in the Liberal centre-right opposition announced that it would make prostitution reform part of its campaign for the March State election. The plan would involve a new licensing authority, following revelations that the sex industry had been expanding and operating illegallly as well as in legal premises. The Liberals claimed that organised crime and coercion were part of the NSW brothel scene.
Sex workers have protested against the fact that the NT is the only part of Australia where workers have to register with the police. Unlike other parts of Australia, the Northern Territory remained largely Aboriginal for much longer, and Europeans were predominantly male. Inevitably this brought European males into close proximity with Aboriginal women.
There has been much debate as to whether the hiring of Aboriginal women Black Velvet as domestic labour but also as sexual partners constituted prostitution or not. Once the Commonwealth took over the territory from South Australia in , it saw its role as protecting the indigenous population, and there was considerable debate about employment standards and the practice of 'consorting'.
Bonney In the Prostitution Regulation Act reformed and consolidated the common law and statute law relating to prostitution.
The Attorney-General's Department conducted a review in A further review was subsequently conducted in The NT Government has consistently rejected calls for legalisation of brothels. There are two types of sex work that are legal in Queensland:. All other forms of sex work remain illegal, including more than one worker sharing a premise, street prostitution , unlicensed brothels or massage parlours used for sex work, and outcalls from licensed brothels.
Much emphasis was placed in colonial Queensland on the role of immigration and the indigenous population in introducing and sustaining prostitution, while organisations such as the Social Purity Society described what they interpreted as widespread female depravity.
Brothels were defined in section of the Queensland Criminal Code in , which explicitly defined 'bawdy houses' in Solicitation was an offence under Clause E, and could lead to a fine or imprisonment. Other measures included the long-standing vagrancy laws and local by-laws. The Fitzgerald Report Commission of Inquiry into "Possible Illegal Activities and Associated Police Misconduct" of led to widespread concern regarding the operation of the laws, and consequently a more specific inquiry Criminal Justice Commission.
An inquiry into prostitution in Queensland in This in turn resulted in two pieces of legislation, the Prostitution Laws Amendment Act and the Prostitution Act The Crime and Misconduct Commission reported on the regulation of prostitution in ,  and on outcall work in Despite the intentions of the founders, prostitution became identified early in the history of the colony, known as the 'social evil', and various government reports during the nineteenth century refer to estimates of the number of people working in prostitution.
In , within six years of the founding of the colony, it was reported that there were now "large numbers of females who are living by a life of prostitution in the city of Adelaide, out of all proportion to the respectable population". The Police Act  set penalties for prostitutes found in public houses or public places  This was consistent with the vagrancy laws then operating throughout the British Empire and remained the effective legislation for most of the remainder of the century, although it had little effect despite harsher penalties enacted in and Following the scandal described by WT Stead in the UK, there was much discussion of the white slave trade in Adelaide, and with the formation of the Social Purity Society of South Australia in along similar lines to that in other countries, similar legislation to the UK Criminal Law Consolidation Amendment Act was enacted, making it an offence to procure the defilement of a female by fraud or threat the Protection of Young Persons Act.
While current legislation is based on acts of parliament from the s and s, at least six unsuccessful attempts have been made to reform the laws, starting in Parliament voted a select committee of inquiry in August,  renewed following the election.
The committee report recommended decriminalisation. A number of issues kept sex work in the public eye during and The next development occurred on 8 February when Ian Gilfillan Australian Democrat MLC stated he would introduce a decriminalisation private members bill. He did so on 10 April  but it met opposition from groups such as the Uniting Church and it lapsed when parliament recessed for the winter.
Another bill came in and then Mark Brindal , a Liberal backbencher, produced a discussion paper on decriminalisation in November , and on 9 February he introduced a private member's bill Prostitution Decriminalisation Bill to decriminalise prostitution and the Prostitution Regulation Bill on 23 February. He had been considered to have a better chance of success than the previous initiatives due to a "sunrise clause" which would set a time frame for a parliamentary debate prior to it coming into effect.
He twice attempted to get decriminalisation bills passed, although his party opposed this. It had little support and lapsed when parliament recessed. No further attempts to reform the law have been made for some time, however in a governing Labor backbencher and former minister, Stephanie Key , announced she would introduce a private members decriminalisation bill.
She presented her proposals to the Caucus in September ,   and tabled a motion on 24 November "That she have leave to introduce a Bill for an Act to decriminalise prostitution and regulate the sex work industry; to amend the Criminal Law Consolidation Act , the Equal Opportunity Act , the Fair Work Act , the Summary Offences Act and the Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation Act ; and for other purpose".
The proposal was opposed by the Family First Party that had ten per cent of the votes in the Legislative Council , where Robert Brokenshire now opposed decriminalisation. Key introduced another Bill  in May Prostitution has existed in Tasmania since its early days as a penal colony, when large numbers of convict women started arriving in the s. Some of the women who were transported there already had criminal records related to prostitution.
Prostitution was not so much a profession as a way of life for some women to make ends meet, particularly in a society in which there was a marked imbalance of gender, and convict women had no other means of income. Nevertheless, the concept of 'fallen women' and division of women into 'good' and 'bad' was well established.
In an attempt to produce some law and order the Vagrancy Act was introduced. Other attempts were the Penitent's Homes and Magdalen Asylums as rescue missions. In like other British colonies, Tasmania passed a Contagious Diseases Act based on similar UK legislation of the s ,  and established Lock Hospitals in an attempt to prevent venereal diseases amongst the armed forces, at the instigation of the Royal Navy.
The Act ceased to operate in in the face of repeal movements. However, there was little attempt to suppress prostitution itself. What action there was against prostitution was mainly to keep it out of the public eye, using vagrancy laws. More specific legislation dates from the early twentieth century, such as the Criminal Code Act Crimes against Morality , and the Police Offences Act Prior to the Act, soliciting by a prostitute, living on the earnings of a prostitute, keeping a disorderly house and letting a house to a tenant to use as a disorderly house were criminal offences.
Sole workers and escort work, which was the main form of prostitution in the stat, were legal in Tasmania. Reform was suggested by a government committee in The Bill proposed registration for operators of sexual services businesses. Consultation with agencies, local government, interested persons and organisations occurred during , resulting in the Sex Industry Regulation Bill being tabled in Parliament in June It passed the House of Assembly and was tabled in the Legislative Council, where it was soon clear that it would not be passed, and was subsequently lost.
It was replaced by the Sex Industry Offences Act Essentially, in response to protests the Government moved from a position of liberalising to one of further criminalising. The Act that was passed consolidated and clarified the existing law in relation to sex work by providing that it was legal to be a sex worker and provide sexual services but that it was illegal for a person to employ or otherwise control or profit from the work of individual sex workers.
A review clause was included because of the uncertainty as to what the right way to proceed was. The Act commenced 1 January Prostitution is legal, but it is illegal for a person to employ or otherwise control or profit from the work of individual sex workers. The Sex Industry Offences Act  states that a person must not be a commercial operator of a sexual services business — that is, "someone who is not a self-employed sex worker and who, whether alone or with another person, operates, owns, manages or is in day-to-day control of a sexual services business".
Street prostitution is illegal. This law explicitly outlines that it is illegal to assault a sex worker, to receive commercial sexual services, or provide or receive sexual services unless a prophylactic is used.
In , the Justice Department conducted a review of the Act and received a number of submissions, in accordance with the provisions of the Act. In June , the Attorney-General Lara Giddings announced the Government was going to proceed with reform, using former Attorney-General Judy Jackson 's draft legislation as a starting point. However, her Attorney-general, former premier David Bartlett , did not favour this position  but resigned shortly afterwards, being succeeded by Brian Wightman.
Wightman released a discussion paper in January This was seen when Whistleblowers Tasmania invited Sheila Jeffreys to conduct a series of talks including one at the Law Faculty at the University of Tasmania. The government invited submissions on the discussion paper until the end of March, and received responses from a wide range of individuals and groups. The Government's top priority is the health and safety of sex workers and the Tasmanian community.
Victoria has a long history of debating prostitution, and was the first State to advocate regulation as opposed to decriminalisation in New South Wales rather than suppression of prostitution. Legislative approaches and public opinion in Victoria have gradually moved from advocating prohibition to control through regulation. While much of the activities surrounding prostitution were initially criminalised de jure , de facto the situation was one of toleration and containment of 'a necessary evil'.
Laws against prostitution existed from the founding of the State in The Vagrant Act  included prostitution as riotous and indecent behaviour carrying a penalty of imprisonment for up to 12 months with the possibility of hard labour Part II, s 3.
This Act was not repealed till , but was relatively ineffective either in controlling venereal diseases or prostitution. The Police Offences Act  separated riotous and indecent behaviour from prostitution, making it a specific offence for a prostitute to 'importune' a person in public s 7 2. Despite the laws, prostitution flourished, the block of Melbourne bounded by La Trobe Street, Spring Street, Lonsdale Street and Exhibition Street being the main red light district, and their madams were well known.
An attempt at suppression in was ineffectual. The Police offences Act  prohibited 'brothel keeping', leasing a premise for the purpose of a brothel, and living off prostitution ss 5, 6. Despite a number of additional legislative responses in the early years of the century, enforcement was patchy at best. Eventually amongst drug use scandals, brothels were shut down in the s.
All of these laws were explicitly directed against women, other than living on the avails. In the s brothels evaded prohibition by operating as 'massage parlours', leading to pressure to regulate them, since public attitudes were moving more towards regulation rather than prohibition.
Community concerns were loudest in the traditional Melbourne stroll area of St. A Working Party was assembled in and led to the Planning Brothel Act ,  as a new approach. Part of the political bargaining involved in passing the act was the promise to set up a wider inquiry.
The inquiry was chaired by Marcia Neave , and reported in The recommendations to allow brothels to operate legally under regulation tried to avoid some of the issues that arose in New South Wales in It was hoped that regulation would allow better control of prostitution and at the same time reduce street work.
The Government attempted to implement these in the Prostitution Regulation Act This created an incoherent patchwork approach. In a working group was set up by the Attorney-General, which resulted in the Prostitution Control Act PCA  now known as the Sex Work Act  This Act legalises and regulates the operations of brothels and escort agencies in Victoria. The difference between the two is that in the case of a brothel clients come to the place of business, which is subject to local council planning controls.
In the case of an escort agency, clients phone the agency and arrange for a sex worker to come to their homes or motels. A brothel must obtain a permit from the local council Section 21A. A brothel or escort agency must not advertise its services. Section 18 Also, a brothel operator must not allow alcohol to be consumed at the brothel, Section 21 nor apply for a liquor licence for the premises; nor may they allow a person under the age of 18 years to enter a brothel nor employ as a sex worker a person under 18 years of age, Section 11A though the age of consent in Victoria is 16 years.
Owner-operated brothels and private escort workers are not required to obtain a licence, but must be registered, and escorts from brothels are permitted. If only one or two sex workers run a brothel or escort agency, which does not employ other sex workers, they also do not need a licence, but are required to be registered.
However, in all other cases, the operator of a brothel or escort agency must be licensed. The licensing process enables the licensing authority to check on any criminal history of an applicant. All new brothels are limited to having no more than six rooms.
However, larger brothels which existed before the Act was passed were automatically given licences and continue to operate, though cannot increase the number of rooms. Sex workers employed by licensed brothels are not required to be licensed or registered.
Amending Acts were passed in and , and a report on the state of sex work in Victoria issued in The Act is now referred to as the Sex Work Act In further amendments were introduced,  and assented to in December The stated purposes of the Act  is to assign and clarify responsibility for the monitoring, investigation and enforcement of provisions of the Sex Work Act; to continue the ban on street prostitution.
When the oppositional Coalition government was elected in it decided to retain the legislation. Sullivan and Jeffries also wrote in the report that the legislation change of created new problems:.
Ongoing adjustments to legislation became necessary as state policy makers attempted to deal with a myriad of unforeseen issues that are not addressed by treating prostitution as commercial sex—child prostitution, trafficking of women, the exploitation and abuse of prostituted women by big business.
The reality is that prostitution cannot be made respectable. Legalisation does not make it so. Prostitution is an industry that arises from the historical subordination of women and the historical right of men to buy and exchange women simply as objects for sexual use. It thrives on poverty, drug abuse, the trafficking in vulnerable women and children Legalisation compounds the harms of prostitution rather than relieving them.
It is not the answer. In November , 95 licensed brothels existed in Victoria and a total of small owner-operators were registered in the state Of these, were escort agents, two were brothels, and two were combined brothels and escort agents.
Of the 95 licensed brothels, rooms existed and four rooms were located in small exempt brothels. Of licensed prostitution service providers i. However, a study conducted by the University of Melbourne, Melbourne Sexual Health Centre and Victoria's Alfred Hospital , concluded that "The number of unlicensed brothels in Melbourne is much smaller than is generally believed. A total of advertisements, representing separate establishments, were analysed.
As of April , street prostitution continues to be illegal in the state of Victoria  and the most recent review process of the legislation in terms of street-based sex work occurred at the beginning of the 21st century and a final report was published by the Attorney General's Street Prostitution Advisory Group.
Kilda , located in the City of Port Phillip, is a metropolitan location in which a significant level of street prostitution occurred—this remained the case in The Advisory Group consisted of residents, traders, street-based sex workers, welfare agencies, the City of Port Phillip, the State Government and Victoria Police, and released the final report after a month period. The Advisory Group seeks to use law enforcement strategies to manage and, where possible, reduce street sex work in the City of Port Phillip to the greatest extent possible, while providing support and protection for residents, traders and workers.
It proposes a harm minimisation approach to create opportunities for street sex workers to leave the industry and establish arrangements under which street sex work can be conducted without workers and residents suffering violence and abuse A two-year trial of tolerance areas and the establishment of street worker centres represents the foundation of the package proposed by the Advisory Group.
Tolerance areas would provide defined geographic zones in which clients could pick-up street sex workers. The areas would be selected following rigorous scrutiny of appropriate locations by the City of Port Phillip, and a comprehensive process of community consultation. Tolerance areas would be created as a Local Priority Policing initiative and enshrined in an accord.
The concluding chapter of the report is entitled "The Way Forward" and lists four recommendations that were devised in light of the publication of the report. The four recommendations are listed as: Alongside numerous other organisations and individuals, SA released its response to the recommendations of the Committee that were divided into two sections: Opposition to all of the recommendations of the Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry 2. In terms of HIV, a journal article by the Scarlet Alliance SA organisation—based on research conducted in —explained that it is illegal for a HIV-positive sex worker to engage in sex work in Victoria; although, it is not illegal for a HIV-positive client to hire the services of sex workers.
This means the agency is not paid until you get paid first. The laws are different to what I thought they were until I researched them. Over the years there has been some really gross guys creating websites for various awful reasons. Some created by a sleazebag who wants to take photos of half naked ladies. Same goes for if they request a tester session. I remember years ago in the UK a new agency site was being promoted and it looked great.
Ladies who applied were contacted soon after by the owner saying that he had an amazing client for them; An overnight that was on credit card. It turned out that the overnight was with the guy who created the site, the ladies were never paid! Such a horrible scam. A well advertised agency is a good start. A reputable agency will spend thousands of dollars a year on advertising.
A good agency will be reviewed and be transparent in they way they operate. A good agency site will be created with the client in mind — Escort photos and details will be publicly accessible without the need for a site login.
Expect a face to face interview! A good agent will have a regular client base and a reputation to keep up. They will want to see you in the flesh, get an idea about your personality, talk you through what is involved etc.
Be up front with them from the start, do not tell them you are 28 when you are 38 or send them photos that are 10 years old.
Last but not least, remember there is no such thing as a non-sexual escort agency. Men do not pay hundreds of dollars to buy you dinner or take you to the theatre. In the past year there has been a huge flood of Australian Escorts promoting tours to Hong Kong and Singapore as well as places like Dubai and Europe.
It all looks so glamourous and amazing! I regularly have escorts contact me to ask for help while they are on tour so I know for a fact that in some cases Twitter posts are definately fiction.
Clients I have know for years tell me they have booked ladies off SB who never actually ended up touring and in a few cases deposits were not returned either. I have almost 2 decades of experience with my own tours as well as organising tours for other international escorts mostly with Agency Atlantic but I also manage some independent escorts tours via Atlantic Management as well. There is no rhyme or reason behind a tour not being profitable.
It is the same as working at home. Sometimes you have a quiet week. There is no way to predict if a week is going to be insanely busy or dead quiet. The one thing I have learnt in my many years of international touring is that none of this business is rational or fits any pattern.
Even if you are taking deposits, there is a possibility that every client you book falls sick in the same week or they are all called away on business. You can have a dud tour, no matter how it looks before you arrive. If you are touring because you think you will make a fortune, you may be disappointed and miss making some great memories. You may be asked questions at the airport so make sure you have researched so you can answer as a tourist.
It will look suss to immigration if you know nothing about the place you are visiting. Stay out of drama. Be nice to everyone always. Be humble and polite. Hotels will ask you to leave if they think you are taking incalls. Incalls are seen as a security risk for the hotel and other hotel patrons. Book in advance, as early as possible. Get your duty free allowance on your way as in some cities alcohol is expensive.
Stock up in the supermarket to keep your room service bills to a minimum. Keep your toys to a minimum and if you need more you can buy them at your destination.
Same goes for condoms etc. For outcalls charge the cost to the client. If you are touring regularly use the same airline so you can gain frequent flyer status and use points and airline deals to lower your costs. Rewards programs are great, a free night here and there lowers your costs and helps your profit. No hotels are escort friendly so rather than book into where you hear other ladies are staying, research hotels and find the best deals.
By reading tripadvisor reviews you can find out which hotels have secured lifts or which have huge discreet lobbies. Use google, learn the laws of the country you are visiting, read the news articles linked on google. You cannot work in a country legally unless you have a work visa. Most international touring escorts are on a holiday visa and therefore, breaking the law even if escorting is decriminalised in that particular country.
If you find yourself in hot water, you need to be prepared and also have money ready for a lawyer. Many countries will simply deport you, others you may be looking at an arrest and a court date. If you need to appear in court, it could be weeks or months away and you will need to have living expenses to cover your stay. Touring can be very lonely, even if you are busy with clients all the time. In your down time make sure you enjoy the city you are in so you have fond memories of a place rather than just seeing the inside of your hotel room.
Missing a flight or booking the wrong hotel dates can mean you mess a new client around due to a change in dates or timing. Early morning flights are great but if you sleep in, it can be a nightmare and be the difference between a profitable tour or one where you make a loss.
The best regular may choose to not see you in the future if you mess him around with your tour dates or ask to change his time when you are on tour. Clients are generally busy people with work and family commitments. Mess him around and he may go to someone else who is better organised. If you require ID or references or a deposit, stick to your guns. Timewasters and dodgy dudes never care about your policies, legit and decent clients will understand you need to feel safe.
Sure some people may help you if something bad happens but others will revel in your bad times. You may have offers to help but they may have strings attached.
Every business these days has a website but many escorts choose to use advertising sites as their main contact. SMS chit chat is such a waste of time — unpaid labour. Your website is saying to clients; I am a professional, this is my career. I am not a fly-by-night lady on a quick money grab; I am a professional escort providing a professional service.
Being an independent escort can be challenging so many ladies opt to be represented by an Escort Agency. However, not all agencies are what they say they are. While some may be a great support to you, others may take advantage. Some agencies are run well and function as a regular business whereas some are set up with the sole purpose of cheating escorts and lining the pocket of the agency owner with as much money as possible. In the 15 years we have been in operation we have heard plenty of crap stories about bad agencies.
A reputable agency usually requires you to meet for an in-person interview. An interview will give you a good feel for the people you may end up working with. This is an opportunity for you to interview the agency too.
If you suspect your interviewer is on drugs or lying about the agency benefits, trust your gut and move on. Escorts sometimes make that kind of money but very rarely. Escorting is not a get rich quick scheme, you have to work at it. If the agency takes credit cards then ask how you will receive the money and how long it takes for you to receive the funds. Also ask what happens with any chargebacks if a charge is cancelled by the card owner or the bank cancels the transaction as the card is stolen.
Agencies all have different guidelines for the things that escorts must pay for themselves. Do you pay for your own transport or is it paid by the client in addition to your fee; Do you need to pay an agency driver. If any agency attempts to charge fees anything not directly related to escorting; legal fee to draw up a contract; it may be a sign of a scam.
Some agencies will use the photos you give them. Some will pay fully for your photos, some will pay a portion of the cost. If you are not using your own photos, ask who will own the new photos after they are taken. All agencies handle scheduling differently. Some agencies have strict policies with set shift hours, set number of shifts or a Roster you must adhere too.
Some will allow a lot of flexibility, others none at all. How much notice you get with appointments. If an agency boasts to you that they have more clients than anyone else, their girls are all booked out all day every day and in desperate need of good escorts be careful.
This is a tried and true scam that some agencies have pulled on unsuspecting escorts who want to get rich quick. A well-managed reputable agency will have regular clients but nobody can predict how a new girl will be received. An experienced agency may have an idea if their regular clients may enjoy your company but there is no guarantee.
Have there been any problem clients and what does the agency do if I find myself in a bad situation. Agency ladies reviews will show the date the review was posted; if an agency has ladies that have been at the same place for years, it may be a good sign.
Girls lasting only a short time may mean the opposite. Does the agency have any sexual services requirements for you to work with them? Also ask about face photos or selfies being shown to clients or on social media.
Can you work via your own ads, work with multiple agencies or are you expected to be exclusive. Many agencies have strict policies about exclusivity. If you previously worked privately you may be asked to refer your private clients to the agency. Be honest if you are advertising anywhere, on other agencies, sugar daddy sites etc; Honesty is the best policy. A lot of agencies will have price guarantees so clients will point out ads to get better rates.
If an agency tries to force you to sign a contract on the spot, be careful. You could be locked into something that you may regret. Take your time to decide if the agency is the right one for you; if you have any doubts continue interviewing with other agencies; you will know the right agency when you come across them. The photographer, as copyright owner of their photographs, can dictate terms for reproducing their work including where it may appear and for how long.
You can only use the photos in places and on mediums as agreed with the photographer. Escort photographers know you will be using them for escort sites however you cannot use them for say a magazine submission or use them in your own lingerie store.
Without the photographer agreeing to the photos to be used in a commercial endeavour outside of their original intended purpose, you are in breach of both copyright and contract law.
If you wish to own your photos then you need to discuss with a photographer and have a written contract in place. You need to consult a lawyer for such a contract and in most cases the cost of the photos will increase significantly Many photographers have boilerplate contracts for the transfer of rights.
