Occasionally, the matter of how busy escorts are and how much can reasonably be expected of them (eg. responding to emails, etc) is debated on this site. Are there any experienced escorts out there who can enlighten me on this? How often would a "typical" escort (however you care to define that term) in a major city see clients on an average week? (Ballpark.) Or does it depend on too many variables to be answerable? Knowing this would help a lot of clients to appreciate better the pressures under which escorts work, about which they may be quite comprehensively ignorant.

Good question! I'd also like to ask, speaking very generally of course, if there are certain nights of the week that are usually busier than others. Is it usually harder to get an appointment over the weekend than a weeknight, for instance?

LAST EDITED ON Oct-22-00 AT 05:49PM (EST)[p]It seems to me that it would depend to a Very Large Extent on what city the escort is in. And how large a market niche he is playing to. It was an Extremely Busy week for me here in Houston, doing mostly leather clients and men who appreciated middle aged bears, allegedly, if I had more than four or five clients a week. And a current thread on DC makes it sound like they may have similar sales there. But these two places are, for such large cities, I am told, sorta escorting backwaters.

And weekends were always a bit harder to catch me available. Not only do most people think about playing (like hiring escorts) on the weekends rather than nights when they have to go to work the next day, but escorts have lives, too, and since most other people are like that, most of the things they want to do with other people happen then, too.

I always got more business than you would think, still do in my other businesses, on weekday afternoons. Partly because I was more available then? Partly because so many men who told me that they were single or in open relatinships had to sneak off when someone else thought that they were at work? Ah, well.

Well I can only speak for myself, but I'm BUSY!!!!!!!!

I have, in the past few months, on average 20 overnights/month, so it's a full time job!

Being busy definatly impedes my ability to respond quickly to emails, but I do what I can, and try to answer all within a 2 day period, but it's tough.

I'm taking the month of November off and going to London for some r&r, and cuase I like them brit skinhead types!!

later boys.

I can only speak for myself, but I am booked up normally for 2 weeks in advance. I cater to the leather and B&D clients, and normally have every weekend full as well as 2 or 3 sessions during the week.

 

I never try to do more than one session per day to stay fresh. But still it gets demanding sometimes.

Well, this is an interesting thread, I never discuss how busy I am, or not busy for that matter, I make an effort to make sure that the person I am with, does not think about anything else, but the moment that we are both sharing. He has a life and so do I. But at that time it is only us. This is easier for me since I can be rather choosy, I have a blast with the people I see, and part of my fun is to make sure they have a great time. However, I know other escorts around town and some that work in NYC, i know some of them sometiems have hardly enough time to clean up and be ready for the next appt. particularly when on the road, but it also depends on the escort. There is a lot of business, you can take as much as you want.

Thanks to you (and the others) for sharing this information. Its revealing that mainly busier escorts have taken the the time to reply. I'm not entirely sure WHAT it reveals. Perhaps that if you want something done, give it to a busy man, as they say.

 

You put your finger on the reason why I asked it here: I have never had the nerve to ask an escort in person. It never seemed appropriate. Not really polite. Thank goodness for this site, the ideal place to pose just this sort of question.

Also, just how many of us actually don't inflate the number of sexual partners we've had when we are taking a medical exam? Hmm? It isn't just that a busy man will take time and a slacker is too tired too, it's probably also that many people would find it embarassing to honestly site a lower number than the prevailing winds.

Even escorts for whom business is slow can safely reveal that fact to us here under the cloak of anonymity, if they feel so inclined. Or is that naive?

 

I'm most interested in finding out whether there is any kind of norm among escorts in large cities, such as NY, Chicago, LA, London. I was hoping that escorts compare notes, and thereby develop some general sense of what is an "average" amount of business. Not very scientific, I grant, but perhaps the best that can be done in this field. I'm just looking to form an overall impression, although even that may prove elusive.

My favorite escort has gotten very busy, but he is also in school as well. So like Jayinla said, they have a life too and as long as they focus on us when they are with us, that is all that matters (unless of course it takes 2 months to get another appointment!!)

Dear Hannover, I wish that you were correct that informal coffee klatches, so to speak, did exist in the major cities and might let us in on these numbers. I am very curious, too. The only city where I have ever heard that something like this might be going on was San Francisco. At one time, I got my hands on two issues of a small 'zine just for people in the skin trades and their clients which mentioned off hours gatherings in the park, perhaps the beginnings of something like a union or political action club. But this is one subject that didn't come up in either of those issues.

 

Perhaps, 1. One's competition are not the people one would feel like sharing this information with.

and 2. (and this would apply here, too) In order for someone to admit to not attracting the number of clients someone else, or worse the average-someone-else, does, one would first have to admit it to oneself, which could be devastating for at least some people in this profession.

I live in Fort Worth. The only advertising I really get is referrals from clients, and recently from this website.

 

I never did the print advertising, but have worked for some escort services.

It seems as though this question can't be answered with enough precision to permit any safe generalisations, although the contributions offered above are both interesting and appreciated.

 

I notice that in HUSTLERS, ESCORTS AND PORN STARS, 2nd ed., Matt Adams debunks a few myths about the habits of escorts.

 

He writes that "It is commonly believed escorts are busiest after midnight. In fact, the busiest times for escorts are between 4pm and midnight. Typically, clients who call after midnight are of low quality ... Also, very few escorts are available in the mornings since they tend to sleep until 11am or noon".

 

Adams also notes that "It is commonly believed that the busiest days are Friday and Saturday. Actually, the busiest days are Sunday through Thursday. Sunday, Monday and Wednesday are the busiest days".

 

Finally, he tells us that "Many people think the summer is the busiest period for escorts. Most clients are on vacation during the summer, and so it tends to be the slowest period. The busiest months tend to be Jan, Feb, and March possibly due to cabit period. The slowest tend to be around April 15th ... July ... and around major holidays".

This thread reminds me of a disappointing meeting with one of the better-known names in the escort world. He was visiting San Francisco and I had planned to meet him. He missed 2 appointments and when we finally did get together, he told me that he was booked back to back when he travels. In fact, he hurried me out of the room after an hour because he had another person scehduled in 15 minutes! That seems like pretty ambitious booking and certainly left a bad taste in my mouth - so to speak. For someone who is a professional, this seemed TOO professional for me.

 

Is this tight scheduling typical?

LAST EDITED ON Nov-13-00 AT 00:53AM (EST)[p]My dance card is not nearly as full as my coworkers. But don't cry for me Argentina (or whoever), because it's my fault. Escorting is the only job that allows me to live my ideal. Living that ideal makes me unavailable.

 

Let me explain: besides my boyfriend nothing in the world is more important to me than my outdoor sports and Travel for travel's sake. In the last four weeks I've been to Minneapolis, Fargo, NYC, Jackson Hole, Palm Springs and Kauai. Only two of those destinations were escort-related, the others were personal. That's a typical month.

 

When I actually am in Los Angeles and have cleared my schedule of overnight commitments my days are...unique. I wake up before dawn, then surf or mountain Bike or snowboard or rock climb or sail or just rollerblade by the beach. If I wake to rain in West Hollywood, I know it's snowing in Big Bear. If it's swealtering in my apartment, I wake my neighbors by dragging my surfboard down the steps to my car to find the waves in Hermosa at dawn. After the fun outdoorsy stuff I return home and hit the gym for about 2-3 hours. Somewhere in between being a happy wanderer and American Gladiator wannabe, I return emails and phone calls. Or at least I try to.

 

These sports obessessions and free-as-a-bird travel lusts of mine are very time consuming. 9-5 didn't provide me with enough time and money to live that life, but fortunately escorting does.

 

THE PROBLEM is that I am so rarely home. In order to spend time with me, men must either get lucky and catch me in, OR schedule significantly ahead. But unlike my, by now, quite-wealthy fellow escorts, I am broke because I choose to spend all my money on these diversions, and can't be bothered to make myself more available.

 

The last week I have been home, I have seen only 2-3 clients, and just for quickies. You can't blame me for turning away the others, my mountain bike is teasing me, literally from the center of my living room. I must answer that call and allow the others to roll over to voicemail.

 

SORRY (well, no, not really).

Hagen - I was much the same way. The joys of financing my mania, acting, making people laugh at my characters onstage, by my other joys were considerable. Now I am in a position where I might wish that I had been in a position to save more money, but I don't, not Really nor Often. As some once said, to paraphrase, "Regret is only good for one thing, to make wrinkles."

Hanover - Of course after midnight clients tend to be not as good as befores. Most call between 1:30 and 3:00. The bars close at 2:00. You do the math.

I have information on my earning cycle covering the last five years, and I must disagree on this Summer lowtime thing. Except for times when there has been a heat wave, Summer has been the absolute busiest time for me. The slump has started in November or so - when people feel that their spending must be on others, not themselves, and when the social season is coming to a head. It bottoms out in January, when people are getting their seasonally inflated credit card bills. And just rights itself in late February or early March. That's what it's like in Houston, anyway.

Rod and "Bilbo"--Thanks for your contributions. Just the sort of thing I was hoping to hear. Very enlightening. I'm gradually building up a fascinating picture of the escort life and the demands that it makes.

Well, I hope I don't have bad cyber breath but three escorts much esteemed here have ignored emails from me recently. I never know what to make of that, so I must assume they either don't like the look of the emails, haven't liked what I've revealed about myself in reviews here (I always mention them)or are too busy/careless to respond, or a combination.

 

It's well to remember, of course, though there is an emphasis on *professionalism* here, escorting for many is a sometime thing and probably as Bilbo and Hagen suggested, a matter of mood and other more pressing concerns. For a horny client that's bad news, but maybe the excorts who have consuming interests in their lives are better off than those who tend to wait for the phone to ring or will schedule dozens of appointments whether they really expect to be up for them (so to speak) or not.

 

Still, my best experiences have been with escorts here who are prompt and honest in answering emails. So while it may not be everything in life to them, it matters enough for them to want to build a client base.

Al, interesting... do you think it's wise to mention the fact that you post reviews on this site in emails BEFORE you even meet? The only time I've ever mentioned this site is after a session. You may be giving the guys stage fright...

 

Also, we're not supposed to tell the kids they are being graded :-)
