My family certainly would not have been “ok” with me being an escort. My brother and father would have been sent into a rage, my mother would have cried and my extended family wouldn’t have reacted any better. My friends may have been a little more understanding, but I don’t doubt they would have looked at me differently and I don’t know if they would have ever truly gotten over it.
When I first started escorting I worried about people finding out a lot. I had originally said I was only going to do it for a short while, and then I extended it and extended it. I eventually said I was going to do everything I possibly could to hide it but if they did find out I would be own up to it. I didn’t want to lie to myself and think that it would never happen because I knew it was a possibility of someone finding out and telling someone else.
This is what I did to limit the chances of my family ever finding out:
– I had a good cover story
If you’re going to go from being broke (or almost broke) to making $5000+ a month, you’re going to have to have a good story to tell everyone. Your story has to be bullet proof, believable and you’re going to have to be able to back it up in multiple, nonchalant & natural ways. My back story was that I had a boyfriend who was very rich. He was actually one of my regular clients from when I first started working with an agency. We saw each other all of the time and he was more like a sugar daddy to me because I would often see him off the clock, however I still considered him a client because I very rarely saw him without getting something from him.
– I told NO ONE.
I didn’t tell my best friend, I didn’t tell my stylist, I didn’t tell a single living soul. The reason for that is because people tell other people, and other people tell other-other people. It was simply not a risk I was willing to take.
– I used fake information for everything
I used a different phone number, different email address, different name, different everything. My pictures I had photoshopped to remove my tattoo and my birth mark, I literally look every precaution I could think of to avoid being caught at any cost.
I made it through 6 long years of escorting without any prying noses finding out or getting wise. If I did it, so can you. Just remember to be disciplined and to make your back story compelling and plausible and avoid flaunting too much money in the face of the people you know.
