Spitzer & CNN

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

While I have no opinion on Spitzer hiring escorts as that’s his choice & it’s between him & his wife what he does in their relationship, what I DO have a problem with is society having one set of rules for escorts & escort services, and ANOTHER set of rules for people with money & power (political or otherwise).

Yes he was an ass making the escort industry laws even more egregious while he was in power all the while seeing escorts, but some people are just stupid asses. We can’t do anything about that, & clearly he felt he had to put on a show to society pretending to be someone he’s not, but then again, I heard that he was an ass to the escorts too, so back when I had my escort agency, I would NEVER have allowed him to see my girls if I knew he was treating them this way.

I am NOT signing this petition because I want Spitzer to go to jail, I’m signing it to make a point, that NO ONE should be charged for running an escort agency (service), working as an escort, OR seeing an escort.

What we do in our PRIVATE LIVES is OUR BUSINESS, not the government’s, not the court’s, NOT the police’s business.

It’s a joke that the government pretends religion has no sway in what laws the government comes up with. Come on, who’s kidding who here. You are forcing us ALL to play by your so called religious rules even though MANY religious people ALSO see escorts. Freedom of religion? What about freedom to have NO RELIGION?

You can’t REPRESS your sexuality, if you do, it will just come back to haunt you.

(when will they ever learn she says – while rolling her eyes in the air)

This archaic repressed way of thinking has got to STOP IN AMERICA! The only other countries soooo repressed when it comes to the escort industry are usually Arabic or Muslim countries!

So, America sits side by side with this controlling, judgmental, close minded way of thinking & it’s currently 2010!

We’ve come a long way people – NOT!

If you agree, please sign this petition to make a point.

Thank you

My views of the escort industry

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

I sincerely apologize to everyone for my delay in blogging.

It’s been a busy year on many fronts, & I really should have started speaking out sooner, so I hope to squeeze a blog post in here or there until things settle down.

I will try to separate each of my points of view into an individual post, so if you wish to comment on only one topic, you can.

Nothing irks me MORE than the majority of society’s clear dysfunctionality when it comes to sexuality. To be fair to the rest of the world, there are many countries that don’t have these dysfunctionalities or the amount of people who do are a much smaller percentage than in the US & Canada.

Usually the people who are open minded keep quiet so they don’t get attacked by others, so it appears as if the closed minded angry ones are the majority when I’d say that’s a misnomer.

These closed minded angry people wag their tongues getting all high & mighty on topics they know next to nothing about, or they judge others for living their lives as they see fit.

I’ve come to accept this because I know neither you nor I can change society. All we can do is change ourselves & feel comfortable with who we are. So, I hope you are becoming more & more secure with who you are as a person, so you become less & less affected by these close minded judgmentals who try & push you around, or tell you what is right or wrong or morally right.

NO ONE can tell you what is right or wrong, ONLY YOU can determine what is right or wrong for you. We are all at different places in our lives, so one minute a person may be living one kind of life, & then 3 years later, another kind of life.

That’s why we change as humans, to grow & to learn.

To give you a bit of background on myself, I got into the escort industry many years ago back in 1988.

By the time I had worked as an escort for about 1-2 months, I realized the escort industry seriously needed someone to help the “girl next door” types (that was me) become escorts in a non threatening, non confrontational environment. Away from the hookers who were cut throat, the owners who forced the girls to sleep with them, or the phone people who favored one girl over another just because she was her friend.

Having been hit with the entrepreneurial bug at the age of 13/14, I had always wanted to own my own business, & the entertainment or restaurant industry was top on my list of choices, but the capital needed to start what I had in mind was beyond my reach.

Being a young yet ambitious 22 year old, I kept my eyes open and my faith in my ambitions with me.

After realizing that I made a very poor escort, I knew I’d be better off running the place.

I got excited with my newfound goal, & the rest fell into my lap.

I found someone who taught me how to do the phones, & then I proceeded to learn step-by-step how to grow the escort agency into a “real” business because while the guy who taught me was great at selling, he really was a pig who could have cared less about the business in general. All he wanted to do was sleep with the girls, manipulate everyone & spend all his money.

I ended up being the one who protected the girls from him, & I had to stumble & make mistakes in order to learn, but it was a very educational experience, & I’m glad I went through it so I could learn.

That guy is still in the escort business, & unfortunately is one of many types of people who makes the escort industry look bad.

At the time I was too naive to even understand what my role in the escort industry would end up being. Back then when I ran my two escort services, & now I’m at the point where I am THE expert helping others open their own escort services or become escorts.

I’m proud to be of service to all of those who are confused, scared, & need that escort coach or consultant. I wish I had had one around me when I first started. Even once I was established I wish I would have had a support system in place, but alas back then there was no such service or business.

Back when I owned my escort agencies, I NEVER saw myself as a PIMP, & I laugh at the word when people use it since I’m sooo not like that.

I’m not saying there aren’t pimp like people out there who open & run agencies, that guy Richard was one of them, but what I’m saying, is that my GOAL is to help others who were like me get into & run a professional ethical escort agency so eventually the escort industry can have many professional escort services and professional escorts.

I’m NOT here to help the sleazy pimp like men & women who wish to get into the escort industry just so they can sleep with every girl that crosses their path.

I’m also not here to help any of those escorts who lie, steal, stab people in the back, & are all around hooker types. While they are a dime a dozen, the real escorts who really care about this industry & their clients are the ones I admire the most because they help make change when it is needed. smile

My main goal in starting my first escort service was to protect the girls, not use & abuse them. In fact, a year or two after being in the business, I was told by one of my escorts that I was definitely NOT a Madame.

I didn’t quite understand what she meant back then, but I understand it now. Some Madames can be borderline pimp like (controlling, semi dangerous, etc.), so she was giving me a compliment even though I didn’t know it at the time.

I was also told by Richard that I didn’t belong in the business because I was too honest.

I say this is bullshit.

Just because a person is in the escort industry doesn’t mean they have to be liars. I mean seriously, if you take a look at every type of industry out there, most people lie. This isn’t a trait limited ONLY to people who work in the escort industry. It never ceases to amaze me how people like to point fingers calling me a liar because I’m in the escort industry, when in fact they are the ones doing all the lying.

I’ve had lawyers say this, collection agency owners lie, I hire independent contractors online, & even though they know what kind of company this is, later on when it comes to light that they are an unskilled worker & they lied about their skillset, or just disappeared, they end up pointing their fingers at me calling me a liar.

While I do agree that the type of job, career or business we get into does reflect somewhat on our character, I feel it’s even more important to look at the person’s actions, NOT the type of industry they work in.

The local grocery store owner can lie day in & day out, & just because he owns a grocery store doesn’t mean I should assume he is always honest. I believe that everyone is honest until they give me a reason not to & while escorts do have to lie to their clients in order to have boundaries & in order to do their job, there are countless other positions that require the same thing:

  1. clothing salespeople who don’t want to hurt your feelings when they sell you on what you want to buy
  2. the customer service rep who lies saying their manager isn’t around to take your call
  3. the car salesman who says the chick magnet looks good on the 50 year old
  4. the model who pretends she is having the time of her life when really she’s feeling like shit
  5. lawyers who lie every day of their lives to both their clients & to the other side

I could go on, but I won’t.

Back to when I ran my escort agencies…

I was in my reality & just running my escort service minding my own business. So bloody what if I happen to be open minded. First & foremost I was an entrepreneur. I wanted to provide a need for escorts who were scared about working for an escort agency because they didn’t know what they were up against.

I also felt sorry for the clients who got scammed by the escorts or phone people.

I knew there was NOTHING wrong with running an escort service. In fact, I was proud of myself for giving the girls a safe, professional place to work, & their safety was always my first priority. I worked damm hard for them & my clients, so I found no shame in running an escort agency & if you are interested in starting an agency, I hope you find no shame in it either. Remember, no one can make you feel shameful, ONLY you can give the power to others to judge you if you decide to see yourself through their eyes instead of your own.

If you run an escort agency properly, I feel any influence I provide through my educational material has helped you as a person, as well as the escort industry as a whole.

I hope that if you decide to get into the escort industry as an escort agency owner, that you will be similar to myself, just an open minded entrepreneur who sees nothing wrong with offering non judgmental companionship whether open minded or just a service where clients can open up about who they really are.

Men & women need this type of service, there’s no doubt about that & there is a reason why it’s one of the oldest professions since the beginning of time. Sex & the need for love won’t go away just because you will it to. You can either embrace your sexuality & need for companionship, or fear & judge it.

So long as you know in your heart that you aren’t doing anything wrong like forcing others to do things they don’t want to do, that is all that matters to me.

I encourage you to make a difference in this industry that needs a slap or two to get it into shape. smile

I have faith that one day that the rest of the people in North America (the States way more than in Canada) will FINALLY give up on trying to bring everyone down just because they feel they have the right to judge others. This often feels like way back when, when witches were burned at the stake out of fear of their power. Often the most open minded of women was shamed by the entire community because they couldn’t handle her sexuality either out of jealousy, or using religion as their weapon of choice.

Women & escorts aren’t here to take over the world, they are here to be women, & to provide a service.

I could say that most men fear women & while many still do, I don’t agree with that. I feel many women fear other women & it’s really a shame mainstream society is still so behind the times. I guess it helped me in my youth that even with being raised by a chauvinistic father, I never saw women as being any different than men, other than our body parts & a few other differences.

I hope one day both men & women will FINALLY start to respect women for the lovely, intelligent, creative, giving creatures they are.

On my next post, I’ll tell you why I feel escort services are being run by pimp like men & women.

Thank you for listening.

Exotic Publishing’s Code of Ethics for Escorts

Saturday, February 2nd, 2008

In every industry there should be a Code of Ethics, and the Escort Industry is no different.

I was remiss in not drawing this up before, and I apologize. It should have been top priority on my list, but it wasn’t.

It became an urgent matter when while talking to a client, I became aware that he was planning on committing one of my cardinal sins, forcing the girls to sleep with him.

He came up with a whole bunch of reasons why he should, and while I understood why he wanted to, even after me telling him it was NOT okay, and he could get what he needed in another way, he didn’t seem to want to listen.

So, please read this over…

I will be creating one for escort agencies as well.

If you come across anyone (escort or escort agency owner) who is going against our code of ethics, please contact me. You will need to provide phone numbers, URLs, names (stage or otherwise) and addresses. Do the best you can do with what you have, & we will work together to see what we can do about your issue.

Thank you

The Adult Industry, Sleaze & Networking

Friday, January 11th, 2008

Well here are my thoughts…

Networking is a MUST for any self respecting entrepreneur, & in our industry it should be no different. Just because you are an escort doesn’t mean you aren’t running your own business if you are an independent escort, & you may not be an independent escort today, but who knows what choice you will make down the road.

Normally I don’t talk to people outside the escort industry, so I don’t deal with porn site entrepreneurs, adult toy store entrepreneurs, etc. , but that doesn’t mean I’m adverse to networking with them, I just have a problem talking to people who are crude, sleazy etc., because I am NOT, & I don’t think for one minute that one has to be sleazy in order to run an escort agency or become an escort.

Not that people outside the adult industry aren’t sleazy, a lot of guys think that just because I’m in the escort industry, that I talk that way all the time, & of course they are WRONG & it turns me right off.

The escort industry doesn’t have a trade show, hell, we barely have any place to even network, so I’d like to hear your point of view on this matter, & tell me if this is something you want/need.

Please take some time & fill out this short survey

Thank you

Escort Industry Review Boards

Monday, January 7th, 2008

Well the general consensus in the escort industry is that escorts do NOT like review boards, and from what I’ve seen on most of them, I don’t blame them one bit.

I remember the first time I went on one years ago, I almost got very ill.

I couldn’t believe how these males were talking about the escorts. In fact it frightened me reading all the attacks, crudeness, etc. I had never seen anything like it, and they weren’t even talking about ME!

So escorts, please help me help you and fill out this short survey… The Escort Industry Needs You!

Escort Services, you are also encouraged to fill out this survey.

Thank you

Seeking respect from customers of escorts

Monday, January 7th, 2008

So here it goes…

As some of you may already know, I’ve owned 2 very successful escort agencies, and now I’m the escort industry expert who helps others start and run their own escort agency. I also take great pride in helping girls become successful escorts and help them to feel proud about their decision to become an escort.

One thing has always been a given with me.

I DON’T tolerate crude, disrespectful customers. In fact I find the term “hobbyists” distasteful. Seeing an escort isn’t a hobby, it should be an enjoyable experience.

Back when I had my escort service, I had no qualms about banning customers who talked in a defamatory way to my girls, acted like pigs (note, having a fantasy isn’t the same thing as being a pig) or abused my girls in any way.

I didn’t even care if the customer was a “big spender”, and had I had movie stars come to me when I still owned my escort agency, I would have told them to take a hike had I found out that they called my girls whores.

I found out a few years after I sold my escort agency that a movie start used my former escort service, and did call the girl(s) a whore, maybe even a slut.

I’m currently reading a great book written by escorts and sex workers, and one of the MAIN points they all have made so far is that they except and wish to be treated with respect.

In fact I learned a lot from one escort who stated that if the customer treats her like shit, it’s because he himself feels guilty for seeing an escort, so he takes it out on her.

I thought that to be very telling.

So I welcome ALL customers of escort agencies or independent escorts, to join my list

My list is not open to the general public, meaning my list only comprises of escort agencies and independent escorts who have read one or two of my books on “How to Start and Run Your Very Own Escort Service” or “How to Become an Escort”.

What this means for you is that you have a better chance of getting quality people servicing you.

Why?

Because that’s who I am as a person, and I feel it’s my duty to try my very best to weed out those negative mean spirited escort agency owners or escorts.

If I come across them, I try not to do business with them, I warn others about them, and/or they are completely deleted from my list.

My reputation as someone who cares deeply for her clients encourages me to keep my list as clean as possible to the best of my knowledge.

I welcome you to the list, and once there are enough customers on it, I will start sending you information about my clients’ escort business.

You aren’t forced to see or hire anyone, but I hope the list will give you access to people you might normally never meet otherwise.

Thank you for your reading, and I sincerely hope you have a fun relaxing time with whomever you see  smile smile
