The History of EscortingWhen somen says that escorting and prostitution are among the oldest occupations, they are not exaggerating. These two have been around almost as humanity itself. An interesting and vivid past is connected to them, and it doesn't look like they intend to slow down or go away. So, let’s talk about the history of one of the most lucrative businesses of all time. All kinds of names have been used to describe or to shame someone who is in the sex industry. In the 70s, society was going through a lot of changes, activists had a huge impact on things. That resulted in everyone who works in the sex industry being called a “sex worker” because sex workers and activists rejected the use of the word prostitute. Before that, the women working in this field were usually called prostitutes. The noun “prostitute” originally comes from Latin, and it is still used in many languages around the world. Escorting and prostitution appeared centuries before Christ, in Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, stuck with the society through the Middle Ages and are still present in many (if not all) countries around the world, wealthy and poor. For example, in ancient Rome, it can be seen that prostitution was not only a common and socially acceptable practice but was also regulated. At the end of the Roman imperial period, they were already being persecuted with fury. Prostitution and escorting are mentioned in the Bible, also in many artworks, such as paintings, novels, poetry.
Some countries around the world made prostitution legal, so they would protect the right of women, providing them with access to health care, also making money on taxes… Legally regulated or not, the demand for escorts and prostitution is there. The need to not feel alone, to have company, to have sex is not going away. Some people just need someone to talk to, to spend time together, go out for a walk, dinner. Some need company for business occasion. And some people just need a partner for the night. That is why escorting is not all about the fiscal act. Some escort ladies have long-term clients who are taking them on vacation, buying them expensive gifts, talking to them about their family, and even business secrets.
Escorting is all about the income for the ladies who are doing it. Expensive hotel rooms, travel, seeing the world, getting designer gifts. For some that are dreams coming true. Escorts even charge more than prostitutes, because of the wider service they provide and even more interesting for the client. Since escorting and prostitution are problematic when it comes to the law, a lot of escort services are all about arranging a meeting between two people. Whatever happens during that meeting between two consenting adults, does not concern the agency. In case something goes in an unwanted way, the agency can claim that it had nothing to do with that part.
Working in the sex industry has and hasn’t changed since ancient times. The laws changed, the way of interaction, as well as the payment method, changed, but the essential need for companionship and sexual needs has not. Escort services provide all kinds of services, so everyone who is looking for fun, amusement, excitement, can find what they need for affordable prices.
