With the holiday season approaching, some of the city’s hottest escorts have had their clients pay them.
The city’s escorts say they are taking advantage of the festive season, which they say is a time for relaxation and a time to make friends.
“I’ve never seen this much money,” said Ashley Cushing, 28, who was arrested in October after she was charged with public intoxication.
“I have friends, but it’s just all about the money.”
“There’s not a lot of escorts around.
We don’t really know the customers we’re going to see, so we’re making a big impression,” she said.
The women say the money they make from their clients is well spent.
“The only thing that is making money is me and my money,” Ashley said.
Cushing said she doesn’t have an exact breakdown of her clientele, but said she has seen a large number of people who she described as “professional and professional looking.”
“I get a lot more money than a lot other escorts because of my reputation, and I’m doing something that I really like to do,” she added.
The money is being used to support her family.
“It’s a little bit of a relief because it’s been tough lately,” she explained.
The escorts said their clients usually pay them in cash and with food and drinks.
“They pay me with cash and the food is always good,” Ashley explained.
She said the majority of her clients pay in the order of $10-$20 per visit.
Some clients, however, are willing to pay up to $100, she said, but the money goes into her account and she pays the bills.
