Being an escort can be a lucrative opportunity, but it is essential that you keep your safety in mind when you work. Make sure you are safe from clients and do not do anything to infringe on the law.
Whether you are an experienced escort or a novice, here are a few tips that you can use to keep yourself safe.
Mode of Communication
When you get a new client, it is essential you screen them. Let them communicate with you through phone or email. You can use these contact details to conduct further checks on them. Make sure you do not meet in person the first time. Instead, call back on the number that the client has provided to get a feel for them.
In case you have an online presence, never reveal your address, where clients can visit or stalk you. Instead, always take the client’s phone number to contact them after doing your due diligence. The telephone number should be a landline or hotel number if you are providing outcall services and a mobile number for incall services. Remember, if a client refuses to give any other contact number other than their mobile number for outcalls, you should not accept the booking request.
Warning Signs to Watch Out for During Outcalls
There are a couple of warning signs that you should keep an eye out for, especially when you go for outcalls at the client’s place.
Reach the client’s place 10 minutes before the scheduled time to scope out the neighbourhood around the house. Make sure that there aren’t too many vehicles parked around the house. If that is the case, the client wants you to be an escort to multiple people. Also, do not enter the house if there is loud music playing. It means the client is having a party.
If a client calls you over to a hotel, it is fine. Just make sure you call beforehand to check who has reserved the room. It should be the same person who has booked your services. Otherwise, do not keep to the appointment.
Never agree to a client picking you up from a point. It is quite dangerous to agree to this. Instead, have a driver who can drop and pick you up. Make sure the client knows that there is a driver waiting for you.
Alcohol Consumption and Illegal Drugs
Refrain from consuming alcohol when you visit a client or entertain them at your place. It comes across as unprofessional and you do not want anyone to take advantage of your intoxicated state.
In case the client wants to drink, let them drink in moderation. If the client gets too drunk, you should immediately leave the premises. Some people tend to get violent when they are intoxicated, and you should not tolerate that.
Also, if you are going for an outcall, make it clear to the client that you will not use any type of drug nor do you want drugs in the house. If there is a raid, you could get into trouble with the law, and that is something you do not want.
Payment is Important
As soon as you arrive, ask the client for payment and put the money away. When you ask for the money upfront, you can leave without any problem should things go south. Also, some clients tend to refuse payment at the end of the appointment and you can avoid a scenario like this.
Incall Safety Measures
It is best to book a hotel room for incalls rather than calling clients to your apartment. Your neighbours may not like men coming and going at strange hours or throughout the day and can report you for disturbing the peace. Furthermore, being at a hotel gives you peace of mind knowing that you can call the security or rush to the reception should anything go wrong.
Even for incalls, avoid consuming alcohol and drugs. Instead, keep a clear mind so that you can focus on the task at hand. Also, ask the payment in advance so that there are no misunderstandings at the end. Remember, you are providing companionship and that is completely legal.
Whether you provide incall or outcall escort services, never reveal your real name or address. Always carry a mobile phone and emergency cash in case you need to call someone for help or you want to make a quick getaway. Lastly, if you want a client to treat you well, always be professional in our dealings with clients. Screen clients and do not accept vulgarity on the phone or in-person. Do not hesitate to walk out on clients who are aggressive, drunk or make you uncomfortable.
