Posted October 07, 2018 07:30:02 The Richmond escort service is worth the trip to Myrtle Beach, Florida, for many of the people who rely on its escorts.
“We see it as a lifestyle choice,” said Rachel, a 29-year-old escort who requested anonymity for fear of losing her job.
“It’s about what you want and who you want to have sex with.
It’s about being in a place where you don’t feel judged or judged negatively.
It can be that you get a lot of compliments.”
The service, which has been operating since 2008, employs more than 1,000 people in Richmond and its suburbs.
Some of the women are paid $3,000 a day, and some work as part-time escorts for $1,000.
Some escorts have worked for the company for as little as $500 a day.
Rachel says she was the first escort in her family to work for an escort service, but she didn’t like it.
“I wasn’t comfortable with that, and I wasn’t confident that I would work with a company that wasn’t professional and would give me my fair shake,” she said.
Rachel and her partner decided to quit the escort industry after graduating from college.
“You don’t really feel comfortable going to work at a place like that, you feel like you’re working against your own body,” she recalled.
“When you go to work, you know you’re not being treated well, and you’re feeling like you have no control over how the environment is.
And when you’re there, it’s kind of just a nightmare.”
Rising costsThe Richmond escort agency has struggled to keep up with rising costs.
For every dollar a woman earns, she pays $7.50 to the company.
The company is also required to pay $1 for each customer they handle.
“There are people who work for the Richmond escort that are not making it,” said the agency’s president, John.
“They’re struggling to make ends meet.
And we want to be able to help them.”
John said the escort agency’s annual turnover is between $300,000 and $400,000, but many of its clients are paying the bills by working in the escort service.
Rising demandThe Richmond escorts service has seen an increase in demand in recent years.
The average wait time between a client’s first and last call with an escort has jumped from 10 minutes to 15 minutes, according to the Richmond Police Department.
The agency’s current caseload is about 50 people.
Some of the Richmond escort agency’s clients are young people looking for escorts to help pay for school.
“The majority of the clients are 20- to 30-year olds,” said John.
The young people who have booked the service are also attracted to the escorts’ work-life balance.
“You get a feeling of having someone there that really cares for you and you really feel that you can trust them,” said Jennifer, who has been an escort for a few years.
“And the fact that they’re really professional and they are going out of their way to make sure that you’re satisfied, and not to hurt you, is important.”
Jennifer says she has had several women come to her and her boyfriend with serious health issues after working for the agency.
Jennifer, who works as a home health aide, said she would often ask the client what they needed in a room.
“She would always say, ‘I need a massage,'” she said, adding that the woman would then tell Jennifer to go to her bedroom.
Jennifer said the escort industry is often portrayed as “unprofessional,” but that it’s not.
“I would say it’s one of the most well-managed businesses out there, and they know their workers,” she added.
Jennifer and her husband are looking forward to moving into their new house and getting a new maid.
“The house is going to be a great place for me and my family, and we’re going to have a great time,” she predicted.
