Client Reviews

Many new escorts are overwhelmed and have lots of questions: Am I going to be safe? How will I be able to trust my clients to pay me? Are people going to hurt me in some way? How do I choose whom to see and whom not? And the list goes on and on… But think for just a moment: Put yourself in the position of potential clients. Many have the EXACT same concerns about meeting escorts: Is he going to perform? Does he look like his...

Escorting 101 (Don’t let this happen to you)

From time to time I encounter or learn about behavior that is so disappointing that it becomes necessary to address it as a point for Career Advice. I think it is time to bring special attention to the three most important guiding principles of Escorting as a modality of Adult Entertainment. There is (or at least there ought to be) a minimum expectation of decorum in any career, and when that lowest measure of professionalism is not...

Addendum on Time Wasters and No-Shows

Two flakes here in Philly have reminded me of a class of time waster I’d overlooked when I wrote “Red Flags: Time Wasters & No-Shows,” but I remember them now… The young and the beautiful: Clients under 30 years old, students of any age, and self-professed hot guys are extraordinarily likely to flake. Although a few will follow through, most of these are looking to get their egos stroked by getting a...

Red flags: Time Wasters & No-Shows

I haven’t written a practical blog for career advice in quite a while, so it’s time to do that. In light of two of my interactions here in San Francisco, I am reminded that I have meant to discuss this in the past: Timewasters. In escorting, as with many other professions, time is money. And so people who waste time are particularly problematic, especially in cities where overhead is naturally high (e.g. New York City, San...

Happy Thanksgiving, 2010

Hello and Happy Holidays! Wow, 2010 has all but flown by already… You’re getting old! (I’m not. Somehow, I’m still 24. ;)) I want to take a moment to give thanks and appreciation to family, friends, patrons, readers, and other positive people in my life. Having a network of supportive people is so important, and I am deeply grateful for all of them. I’m even grateful for the challenges, obstacles,...

Etiquette: Overnight appointments

Dear Devon: I need some words from a professional. For the first time in my life, I made an appointment with an escort. The appointment was just to meet–basically coffee in a nice setting on a Sunday afternoon. He was very smart, well-read, a good conversationalist, and seems really grounded and balanced (he talked about his family, specific references to his university and program, responded believably in how he got into...

The etiquette of preparing for anal sex: Being the receptive partner

I have been asked a few times about this, and I have avoided talking about it, not because I’m squeamish, but because I wanted to treat it with some delicacy (much as I would want my insertive partner to treat my delicate little hoo-haw with some delicacy as well). I am writing this for a few practical reasons: I want clients new to the experience of being the receptive partner to arrive at our rendez-vous properly and...

Houston Symphony and Cirque de la Symphonie

OMG! If you live in or visit Houston, TX any time the Symphony is performing with Cirque de la Symphonie, you must, Must, MUST, M-U-S-T go see a concert. This performance is part of the “Pops” series, and thus all the music is “popular,” in the sense that even if you know “nothing” about classical music you would probably recognize some of the melodies. Well, as a dancer, I am more than a little...

Rant: Livelihood vs career

In light of what is happening with Rekers there are a great many conversations out there dominated by people who should shut the fuck up. “Escorting is a livelihood, not a career.” Oh, really? Well, look who knows so much. Let’s take a moment to evaluate whether or not escorting is a career. A career is that work one does for which one is paid, and it is generally supported by personal investment, training,...

First time for everything: That’s what friends are for.

An acquaintance I’ve had for some years and who has always been attracted to me has just set up an appointment. His boyfriend hurt him and they broke up, and he needs to splurge on himself. And he has chosen to do that with me. He says I have always turned him on, and that I’ve always been kind to him. So when he was trying to figure out what to do to pamper himself, I came immediately to mind. I am going to cook dinner...
