You can be anything you want on the internets

Don’t Get Me Wrong.

I recently came across a posting in the local CraigsList “adult” section. Something to the effect of “if you’re thinking about becoming an escort, read this.”

Well, this oughta be good. I was redirected to Some Chick’s blog, her life as an escort. She lived the life and now she’s gonna altruistically tell you, the aspiring ho, all the pitfalls that she learned to navigate in her many years walking the mean streets as a paid companion.

First up: 10 things to know about escort agencies.

Now red flags are popping up all over the place. It’s pretty obvious this ‘chick’ has been watching too much TV.

Just another day at the office.

Yeah, right. Right off the bat, at least 6 of those 10 tips are blatantly wrong, the rest could be guesswork.

Look, escort agencies aren’t like they’re portrayed on TV. It’s not like some sort of cross between a high class modeling agency and a sexy slumber party.

So, now I’m thinking, “Isabella” is full of shit. If she’s so wrong about this, what else is she wrong about? Pretty much everything. But the worst seems to be her advice, to both hookers and johns about screening. This is obviously someone who has never screened a prospective client. At best, this is some punter posing as a reformed, retired hooker (she gave it up for love, of course) and his only screening experience has been with low-rent CL girls asking only basic information.

This is dangerous. Bad screening gets real girls arrested, injured or worse.

Fake hookers are popping up all over the internets. In an excellent article, Carnal Nation details the rise of the faux ho, and how it impacts the perceptions of the sex industry. Well researched and with input from REAL working girls.

So, “Isabella”, I ain’t buyin’ what you’re sellin’.

Since the success of the “Belle deJour” blog/book/TV show, everybody wants to cash in on being an online ho. There’s lots of real ones out there, with great, funny, sexy interesting real stories to tell. It’s easy to spot the fakes.

Not a GFE

    I would love to see the thread on your hobbyist site about AlexaRPD and to hear more of your take on this.

  2. Diamond says: – “Alexa’s other twitter page – She is also a cam girl…funny how she had sessions while on vacation in Yellowstone – and here she is again …and here she is on Youtube – She’s a sex expert here & creator of this site.

    Plus she’s a grad student, a courtesan, a writer of several blogs, a sex worker advocate & constantly twitters etc She is such a fraud!

  3. Amanda says:

    Are you serious about Alexa cause if her Courtesan clients knew she was showing it all for free… she wouldn’t have them.

    • Some Guy says:

      Thanks for your comment. “Alexa” was not the focus of this particular story, indeed, I don’t believe I mentioned her name at all here. The point of it is, there are a few people out there posing as experience escorts and giving bad, dangerous advice.
      As for your assertion about “Alexa’s” clients… well, you seem to have missed the point.

    nice share you have here, keep up the good work !

  5. […] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Jenny DeMilo, EscortXYZ. EscortXYZ said: @HookerAddict Unfortunately, the ppl who need to read entry, won't & sadly, they'll remain clueless. Still a good read. […]

  6. […] 6 Oct About a year someone calling themselves “hooker addict” wrote a blog entry blasting my blog, today he decided to twitter about me again, so here’s a little response to his blog entry and twittering. It can be seen here . […]

      By the way, “Isabella”, I’ve approved this comment from your site. Something you never did with any of my comments to your blog. I would comment, you would unapprove and pretend it never happened. I see you’ve now written about me.
      To clarify, I didn’t just suddenly, out of nowhere ‘decide’ to Twitter about you. I only did so in response to the auto generated email from Twitter alerting me that I had a new follower. Care to guess who that new follower was? Anyone?
      That’s right, you.
      If I wrote a generally negative article about you last December, it’s not likely we’re going to be Twitter buddies now.
      I don’t wish you ill, it’s just that I didn’t see much of anything in your blog back then that rang true. Maybe you’re not a guy pretending to be a girl, maybe you’re not a girl pretending to be be an escort, maybe you’re not a candidate for Senate in Delaware. Who knows.
