    Hi Rabbit this is a whole new world for me, I have never met a professional escort before and it is interesting what you say about it.

    I dont want to seem disrespectful because I dont know you. But I honestly dont think glorifying this profession is a good idea in terms of putting ideas in young girls’ heads. As a psychologist I have seen what this can do to women longterm, like have a profound and often times irreversible effect on their self esteem, it can lead to mental health disorders, addiction, self-harm etc. So it may work for you just fine, but please dont neglect that this is in fact extremely harmful to a lot of women.

    “It is a well rewarding profession and I get to meet people from around the world as a bonus”

    Not glorifying?

    And I’m simply stating an opinion about how unproblematic you make this job sound. Now, you do what you want to do with your life, thats none of my business.

    Case closed.

    I don’t disagree with you per se, as regards your personal findings, but I don’t believe that what rabbit has written is going to change anyone’s career plan.

    I personally feel that if escorting was much more mainstream, much of the harm from it would be gone.

    I think we may or may not agree with what each of us does, as a profession, and likely will not understand the full specification of any job, but we are only stating basic facts here, not going into detail. We live in a world in which all these things exist, and to understand each other, are useful to know. There are many influences in this rapidly advancing world which can affect us mentally in, as yet, un-quantified ways. Take social media for instance. There have been recent worries about things like Facebook being detremental to self esteem too.  Take another instance – Are we to condem talking about being a pop star in case our offspring wish it and end up hooked on drugs?

    For my pennyworth, there is too much exposure on social media for kids and adults. People seem obsessed with what  comments they get from complete strangers and if they get bad comments that does effect their self-esteem. I wish we could go back to more innocent and more private times ( a bit of a dinosaur I know ).

    I completely disagree. If escorting was more mainstream I believe it would still be harmful to women. Theres is a reason why it isnt mainstream in the first place. I dont think it will change anyone’s career plan obviously. But it does upset me that this lifestyle is getting so much exposure in the recent years, making it seem like a good idea, including things like sugar dating etc which can be attractive to many young girls who dont think of the consequences.

    I also want to say that I dont think comparing influences from social media or being a pop star to escorting is in any way appropriate. Self-esteem is affected in many ways of course, but there are major differences in how its affected.

    So I dont know rabbithabit and I have no opinion about her as a person whatsoever besides her obvious rudeness on this forum. But I dont care to judge her, lets be clear. I dont know anything else about her. However, I’m bothered by a comment she makes, so I state my opinion about that comment on a profession that deeply concerns me based on experience with the after effects. It doesnt seem like people actually read what I write, more what they think I’m writing.

    I completely agree with you Magnolia.

    I love those heels! They’re very stylish and feminine.

    Hey Kitty the heels in your pic look pretty good too.

    I understand what you say magnolia, and don’t disagree with it. I would be very worried if a daughter of mine chose that as a career, but I am saying that things are a lot more complicated in life, and it is not easy to differentiate between an ideal and a slightly less than ideal lifestlyle. You may be better qualified, but from my position I like to accept an understand people rather than judge an isolate. I have a saying – ‘People are people’, meaning everyone is equal, wherever they live, and this means seeing their lives may be very much different than mine and understanding that they see things very differently to me. From  their perspective I may be wrong, and if I were in their shoes I would see it their way. What is good in one circumstance may be bad in another. Taking the bull by the horns – ‘Escort’ as an occupation is viewed very differently in different societies. It will be looked down on in some countries, but not in others, –  In an international setting?

    Spinningjen, I still dont think you are reading my posts right. From what I gather from your post, you insinuate that I judge, isolate and dont see people as equals?

    I would really not be able to do my job very well if I was the type to point fingers, judge and consider my clients as beneath me or others. Again, that is not my discussion topic at all in this thread.

    The last part of your post, however, is getting to the topic. I understand your view, but I dont believe that you can separate something from its context like that. So if what you’re saying is that there may be countries where escorting does not cause problems or harm to women, even if that were true (not that I can think of such a country?), thats not the case in the West which is in fact the reality we live in. And it is a fact that a vast majority of women escorting (in the West) are in some way harmed by it longterm no matter their perspective at the time they did it.
