From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A call girl or escort is a sex worker, who, (unlike a street walker), is not visible to the general public. Nor does she usually belong to an institution like a brothel, although she may be employed by an escort agency. The client must make an appointment, usually by calling a telephone number — hence the term "call girl". Not all escorts offer sexual services. Some escort services offer visual entertainment only. To assist with the security and potential health risks of this profession, some escort services offer assistance and information to those interested in becoming escorts, themselves.[citation needed]

Call girls often advertise their services in small ads in magazines and via the Internet, although an intermediary advertiser, such as an escort agency, may be involved in promoting more upmarket escorts. The less upmarket side of escorts may be handled by a pimp.[1] Call girls may work either incall, where the client comes to them, or outcall, where they go to the client.

Escort services have made it a common practice to screen call girls to eliminate women with obvious drug problems (such as needle marks from injecting drugs) or those who have arrests for street prostitution or other types of crimes (using criminal background checks). They also attempt to employ women with pleasant personalities and those who are more skilled, attractive, educated, well-groomed and youthful.

Sexual services

By far, the services most commonly provided by escorts to their clients involve sexual stimulation of the client's sexual organs (namely the penis, in men) with the intention of eliciting an orgasm. Specifically, these services include vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse, oral sex, manual genital stimulation (handjobs), and the use of sex toys alone or in conjunction with any previously mentioned common method utilized by escorts to please their clients.

Non-sex work

While sexual contact usually plays a prominent role in a call girl's work, not all clients hire call girls exclusively for sex, or in some case for any sex at all. Some simply do so either for social reasons (e.g. attending a party) or for companionship (e.g. someone who feels lonely may hire a girl to provide companionship missing in his or her life). Other call girls may specialize in domination, or other fetishes which do not require intimate sexual activity.[2]

Companionship

Elderly and/or widowed men sometimes hire call girls for companionship, simply to enjoy the company of an attractive or intelligent woman. Escort agencies try to determine if this is what a client wants and if it is, the agency will try to send their most educated and polite women to the man or woman. It is not unusual for these "chat" call girls to receive big tips or even bequests from clients.[3][4] In the movie Klute, Bree Daniels performs this service for an elderly garment manufacturer.

Social settings

Instead of sex, the client may simply desire to impress his or her peers by having an attractive woman as his or her date, or even pretend girlfriend or wife. The client may, for example, be attending a high school or college class reunion or an office social event. Clients seeking this service will tell the escort service what their intention is. They may specify what kind of woman they seek to play this role. The client may meet with the woman beforehand to evaluate her level of intelligence, education, manners, speech, and ability to execute the pretense, as well as to judge her appearance. They would go over his or her past, her (pretend) past and their feigned relationship, in order to successfully carry out the pretense.[5]

TV appearances

Secret Diary of a Call Girl is broadcast in the UK on ITV1 after 11pm and on Showtime in the US.[6] It is about a well educated, upper-market call girl who is part of an agency.

Call girls, celebrities and the very wealthy

Celebrities and very wealthy men sometimes hire call girls for sex to avoid the problem of unreasonable infatuation, where their partner is unreasonably attracted to them (and won't let go of the relationship or accept refusal) because of their status. It also avoids the problem of "kiss and tell" stories, where the girl would sell the story to the press. Both parties understand their respective positions and do not go beyond them. Some of these people are even open about what their date is to those they're partying with, though call girls request they not be. Usually, the man or woman will first hire the woman for a short date to determine if he or she wants to do longer ones with her. Here again, the woman's appearance, intelligence, manners, sociability and education also come into consideration. For some wealthy clients, these dates evolve into long standing arrangements that more closely resemble that of a kept woman or a mistress.[2]

Some opt for this profession because it is a way of making money while enjoying the pleasure of sex with different partners. Recently men have also jumped into these businesses, and provide sexual services to women. Some higher class women who live far away from their husbands or who like to have sex but don't have partners hire men for sex.[7][8][9][10]

Internet

Most call girl agencies and independent call girls have their own websites. The internet has become the main medium through which customers find their desired escort. The percentage of bookings made via the internet is growing rapidly, from 11% in the first half of 2009 to 19% at the end of the year[11]. Generally, a picture of the girl is provided, and sometimes, the type of sexual services she is willing to offer. Some agencies also propose a higher fee for people of special interest, such as twins, former porn stars, B-List models, prodommes or even submissives.

The Internet includes many directories or listings of call girls or escorts. These may cover a specific area or a wider region (even worldwide). Usually the call girl or the agency is responsible for submitting their information to the appropriate directory.

Websites are also used by clients/hobbyists to provide a review of the call girls they have met and rate them, on their aesthetics, behavior or sexual performances. For the readers of evaluation web sites the rating of the call girls is often a determining factor in their selection. Many are thought to be not trafficked.[12]
