In addition, the session is generally private and requires discretion. If I had a child, I would hope that they would feel empowered, and have the opportunity to do whatever they desire to do, and that they would be in charge of their own sexuality. This job has its downsides, though, and can take a high toll on a person. So, like any parent, I would always want more for my child than I had for myself.
I feel that prostitution should be legal. I realise that there are women in prostitution who are there because they feel like they have to be. These women work in a different part of the industry than I did. Many have drug or abuse issues, among other problems. I think, instead of spending time and finite resources on arresting and criminalizing these women, we should spend our resources on making sure that these women have other opportunities and a place to go for help.
Women who want to be should be able to. I feel that no one should have to take a job to make a living that is against his or her own moral judgment. That said, legalization does not remove all the barriers to entry. The job still would have a huge negative stigma associated with it, both for the escorts and the clients.

These 22 sketches make complicated financial concepts simple enough to fit on a napkin. My female housemate has recommended porn, but I find most of that stuff degrading towards women! I was thinking maybe I can even join a threesome with another girl it will be my first time so I can watch and learn?
I also found out about Backpage so I'm going to list myself this weekend and see if I get any interest. I know it's a bit less, but I'm less experienced then the other girls there. Also, it's still a lot more than what I get working as a barista! Is there somewhere in Melbourne I can visit to learn about the steps in becoming a sex worker?
Also, feel free to give me any hints or tips! Is there also another forum where sex workers are more active - it's a little quiet here on Reddit I think. You are better if looking for an Australian based forum. Most here are from the US, which has a very different legal environment. Sex work in the state of Victoria is legalised, so the laws around sex work as an independent are restrictive to a degree.
Sex workers require registration in certain circumstances, and there are restrictions on advertising and incall work. You should really talk with an organisation that supports sex workers to navigate all this. Most independents in Victoria are not registered though, as few trust the state to remain discrete, and the restrictions on incall are too onerous to reasonably conduct business from home or any residential apartment. Lastly, backpage and locanto are generally lower end, as far as sex workers and clientele go.
Punter Planet and Scarlet Blue are the main venues for independents to advertise. Some WLs advertise on both though, and a few even do so under different names. I don't mean to be rude, but don't be naive here If your skin isn't thick enough to tolerate porn, you might not want to get into prostitution. I work as an escort in Sydney and am happy to pass on any tricks if you have specific questions.
I would really recommend joining an agency until you find your feet. It's not just sexual skills you need - there are so many tips and tricks to pick up from talking with other girls and an agency. That way, at least you have a bit of a community backing you. It can be very isolating work sometimes and there is a dangerous side to it, even though it is legal.
The classic line to use is 'business before pleasure' which breaks the ice. Check the money is correct. If they give you too much - don't give change. Consider it a tip. If they want change, they will ask - and trust me, they never do. Set a timer which finishes 10 mins before the booking ends that way you can let them politely know that time is coming to an end and ask if they would like to spend more time with you.
If they don't wish to extend then take the final 10 minutes to shower especially if you've been doing massage with oil etc or touch up your makeup etc. NEVER leave your bag unattended.
Punters are known for taking the money out of girls bags when they go to the bathroom. Always always always take it with you. If they query which they never do just say you are touching up your makeup. Obviously use a fake name.
It also helps to have a persona. I am very genuine with my clients so usually keep anything I say about myself fairly on point. I never tell them the actual suburb I live in or uni I study at though. It is also important to keep some things for yourself. Keep in your mind that it is a business transaction. You need to keep you for you. Protected sex always - oral and intercourse.
If they complain they can't feel anything that's too bad. Standard full service is massage, protected oral, protected sex and they should know this. Everything else is extra. I never have unprotected sex however for the right client I will do natural french unprotected oral , greek anal or a variety of others. Again get the money for extras straight away and don't sell them low. It just isn't worth it unless the guy has enough to fork out for it...
