I wasnt one of the lucky ones when I started prossying. I didnt know that SAAFE existed. To be honest I really dont know how I found out about it. Someone may have mentioned it but I cant be sure.
I had so much to learn when I started but I had to learn a lot of it by trial and error. I have been lucky in the fact that nothing has gone majorly wrong and Ive never had anything stolen from me. Ive had the abusive texts from other WGs in the area when they werent happy with the fact that I was doing just fine but I dealt with that by going to the Police and it stopped. There has also been abusive texts from clients I wouldnt give bookings to because they raised a red flag. Personally I would rather not see someone I was suspicious about than allow them to know where I work from and thus put myself in further danger.
For the first few months I didnt even know anyone else who was a WG. It was so so insular and I know most femmes have found it the same.
I didnt start working till I was well into my 50s so I had loads of life experience to stand me in good stead and had to fall back on and I had been sexually active for approximately 40 years so that helped with “the act” and clients.
When and how did you find out about SAAFE. Did you use the site before you started prossying or had you started working before like me you found out about it. Was there a lot you had not even envisaged you needed to know re how to work successfully. Do you now realise that you were very naive when you started working.
I admit there was a lot I did not realise I needed to learn but it was a learning curve for me and I am now a more knowledgeable person for this learning.
Many come into the sex industry thinking it is an easy way to make money. (Lie on your back and think of Britain, oh and take the money
). Now through experience I know that it was a lot easier when I started for now the number of girls working has quadrupled but the number of clients hasnt gone up by the same number.
What has been your experience. Did you come into escorting with your eyes closed or open. Did you find out about SAAFE before you started or were you like me and working blind. Was there a lot to learn that you did not realise was required for the job. Can you now laugh at some of the things that happened to you in the beginning before you learned the error of your ways. I know I certainly can. Thank goodness none of them were bad.
So, let me hear your experiences .................................. please. Lets have a laugh on the run up to Christmas as many of us could do with a laugh.
Oh and Amy and the others, thanks for having the site here for me when I needed it and thanks for keeping it running smoothly (even when some of us were giving you a headache, me included).
