Isn't escort just another word for prostitute?
Another point to keep in mind is that street prostitution, the most common form of prostitution people are aware of, is often reported to be only 10% of all prostitution. The other 90% can encompass obvious sex-for-money transactions such as massage parlors and plenty of grey area, such as mistress arrangements or escorts. Prostitution is a very elastic term, which is why I give a particular definition for escorts.

What are your best and worst escort experiences?
I’ve met many wonderful men who were eager to show me a good time or that I completely connected with. I’ve had amazing experiences on many levels: social (fabulous dinners, nice trips), sexual or the personal (making a new friend for life).
Do you have a background of sexual abuse?
I refuse to believe that my conscious choices and decisions as a fully-functioning adult all depend on what happened to me before I was 18. I believe in the power of my own free will much more than that.
A perfect childhood does not mean one won’t be drawn to living an unusual life; nor does a terrible childhood mean one will always be doomed to be a victim of circumstance. Everyone has to take responsibility for their own choices and actions after a certain point in life. I was far beyond that point when I decided that I would like to try escort work.
Are you currently in a relationship?
Does being an escort get in the way of your personal life?
The stereotype that escort works “gets in the way” of a romantic relationship is usually not true. The reverse: that a romantic relationship gets in the way of work, is generally more the case with myself and the escorts that I know. Single girls can focus on their business a lot better.
Why did you retire?
Do you consider yourself a feminist?
Being a heterosexual escort and a feminist are not disparate ideas. A woman who enjoys her body and controls her life is the best kind of feminist.

Is prostitution legal in Las Vegas?
The legal brothels nearest to Las Vegas are Sheri’s Ranch, The Chicken Ranch and The Shady Lady Ranch.
Do you think prostitution should be legalized?
A lot of civilized countries are decriminalizing prostitution. Their societies are not falling apart just because women are legally entitled to pursue their destiny as they see fit (the majority of sex workers the world over are women). In countries where prostitution is criminalized, it’s nearly always the women who feel the weight of the law. Criminalized sex workers are targets for violent crime and extortion by police. Criminalizing prostitution empowers criminals (and criminals in positions of authority). Taking away the criminals’ power is the best thing that could happen to women in the industry — whether they work indoors or on the streets.
It is well-documented that criminalization doesn’t work. Decriminalization does.
Can you tell me how to hire an escort? Can you tell me how to get started as a male or female escort?
I don’t offer much information about becoming a male escort because that is not my area of expertise, though a couple of male escorts have reported finding my books useful.
