The Difference Between Escorting And Prostitution

What’s The Difference Between Escorting And Prostitution?

Many people might avoid the services of a London escort because they are afraid of the repercussions. Although hiring an escort is not illegal and poses no legal danger to any of the parties, many people still fail to grasp the difference between an escort and a prostitute.

Due to a fear of breaking the law or sustaining the stigma attached to this line of work, some people might refuse to use escorting services, although there is a very clear, distinct line between these and actual prostitution.

Is Sex Work Legal In The UK?

Sex work and the law have a convoluted relationship, partly because of the disparate regulatory status of professions in this area around Europe. Even when sex work is legal, many people are still reluctant to inform themselves regarding the legislation.

In the UK, for example, it is completely legal to commission someone for sex services, as long as some conditions are being met.

Under the Sexual Offences Act of 2003, exchanging money for sex services is legal, but there are a number of activities that are still considered crimes, such as soliciting in a public place, kerb-crawling, owning or managing a brothel, pimping and pandering.

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland you can be prosecuted for paying for sex with a sex worker who has been subjected to force, even though you did not know the sex worker was forced.

This is why it’s vital to keep your business with reputable agencies that can legally prove that the sex worker is doing their job completely consensually. Of course, it is illegal to pay for sex from a person who is under 18 years, even though the age of consent is 16. 

Sex Work Versus Escorting - What’s The Difference?

Although the difference is pretty much evident, due to the social stigma these two can often be confused. A sex worker or a prostitute will receive money or other types of valuable items in exchange for sex acts.

They are generally engaged for a very short period of time, they never leave the premises, and they usually charge by the hour or a specific, completed sexual act. On the other hand, escorts sell their time and company.

They are usually hired by clients to keep them company, be it during a private date or for social events. The escort might work under a contract for several days or weeks, and she will accompany her client to social functions, dinners or other engagements. They are socially adept, great conversationalists and very attractive.

An escort is someone you would hire without a thought to be your companion when meeting friends or colleagues. Escorts can also be hired for parties, where they will act as hostesses or perform shows according to their list of offered services. For example, an escort could be hired to a product launch, where she will wear a designated uniform and present the product to potential buyers.

You could also hire an escort to keep delightful company and act as a tour guide for foreign businessmen, keep guests engaged and in a good mood at a party or take you to a nice dinner if you’re just visiting the city. When hiring an escort, a client will usually take her out for dinner or drinks or other activities you’d usually do during a date.

The common denominator between escorts and prostitutes is that escorts could engage in sexual activity during their commissioned time, but that is something that will always remain at her latitude. The sexual services that escorts might provide are offered at the lady’s discretion, and they depend on the relationship you two manage to build during your date. 

Why Hire A Social Escort?

Contrary to what one might think, a lot of men employ escorts for social services alone. At many high society events, a considerable part of the women you see on men’s arms comprises social escorts.

This happens because busy businessmen might have a hard time juggling demanding jobs and fulfilling relationships, and they’re in need of a well-articulated, intelligent and attractive company at parties, business trips or vacation. Another interesting use of social escorts is bringing them home to your family.

This might sound weird to some of you, but there are certain cultures in which this is practised regularly. In Singapore, for example, close to the Chinese New Year, many families have reunions with their relatives. Due to their culture, a lot of people working abroad will hire social escorts to act as their partners to ensure nosey relatives won’t make a fuss about one’s single status.  If you’ve never hired an escort before, you must know that they come with some great advantages, as opposed to sex workers. Escorts put a lot of care into their presentation, and they make efforts to be the best possible companion for their clients, especially if we’re talking about regular contractors. You can always expect the greatest level of discretion from the escorts we represent, and you can rest assured that a great level of effort was put into making sure they are the most intelligent, well-spoken, attractive and friendly escorts you can find.
