‘Embrace your age and your curves’: Celebrity escort lifts the lid on Australia’s sex industry and reveals doctors, lawyers and businesswomen are choosing sex work for FUN not profit.
A Sydney escort has opened up about Australia’s sex industry and has revealed that the modern day sex worker is more than likely also a professional.
Samantha X, who resides in Bondi and runs her own escort agency, says as the public in today’s society are more accepting of sex workers, there’s a fresh appeal for career focused, hard-working women.
‘I see and hear a lot of women sick of the merry-go-round of dating, sick of feeling used and sick of never getting the work/family life balance right, plus struggling to stay on top of their finances.
‘They come to me intrigued, curious and wanting to get their power back. This industry has never been about sex, it’s about power,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
Samantha X says that times are changing, citing that call girls and sex industry workers are given more of a voice in media in addition to the laws which support her business.
She says it is a way women can feel empowered and gain control back in their lives, especially in instances when they’ve just come out of a relationship but it’s common for these women to be also involved in another occupation.
The benefits of escorting are many, she says, but often beyond financial.
‘Benefits of escorting is empowerment, meeting and sending time with interesting, successful and kind men, the money but most of all the flexibility.
‘I attract mostly single mothers who are sick of trying to get the balance right of work and family – and failing.
‘You can make in a few hours what you can make in a week in a ‘normal’ job.
Samantha X says however that she does not want to glamourise escorting as everything comes at a cost.
‘Relationships become tricky and some women fear misguided judgment,’ she said.
In modern times there are many variations of an escort with different expectations and limitations.
Samantha X worked as a journalist until making the change to a high-class escort, and now is an acclaimed author behind multiple books including Hooked: Secrets Of A High-Class Escort.
Following its release she was overwhelmed with messages of support from women around the world.
She said women would tell them it gave them a prompt to take back control of their bodies.
Her second book Back On Top also was focused around empowerment, however that wasn’t the intention.
The book is now regarded as a guide for women on how to leave toxic relationships after Samantha X went through her own abusive relationship.
She’s learnt a myriad of lessons through over the last six years in the industry but isn’t shy in confessing her most common request within her agency is for mature and curvy women.
For women wanting to give it a go Samantha X urges to think very carefully before diving in,
‘This industry is addictive. The hours, the money, the thrill. It will be hard to go back to a normal nine to five after tasting the flexibility and freedom escorting gives you.’
