In this week’s installment of TechCrunch’s “The ESCORT SERVICE: The NEXT Frontier in ESCorts” podcast, host Josh Tamburro talks to Escort Manager John Hagan about the current state of escort services in the city of Los Angeles.
Hagan has worked in the escort industry for 20 years and is a certified escorts escort and the owner of a large escort escort company.
Haggs first foray into the escort business came when he was 18, when he moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
Hagens first job in LA was as an escort in a strip club.
The strip club he worked at had a reputation for being rough and dangerous.
“At one point, the owner and his management team were throwing people in the car, which was a pretty common thing,” Hagan said.
The manager told Hagan to watch out for the young guys and told him to “be aware” of them.
“He said, ‘Be aware that there’s a lot of men who like to go to strip clubs.
They go there to be with the women,'” Hagan recounted.
The owner told Hagg and his friends to be careful and not to get too drunk.
Hager says he remembers being “really scared” when the manager told him he was in danger of being killed by the men at the club.
“I didn’t want to get in there, because the bouncers were just saying, ‘Oh, there’s two of them here and they’re going to beat you up,'” Hagg said.
When Hagg arrived at the strip club, he was shocked to see the owner, a bouncer, and the other male bouncer on his way out the door.
He told Hag that he felt scared and he didn’t think he would get away alive.
“You’re just thinking, ‘This is the best time in my life.
This is what I’ve dreamed about.
I’m so happy,'” Hag said.
“And I was just thinking: ‘Wow, this is a bad time.
I’ve never been that scared in my entire life.'”
The next morning, Hagg found out the bouncer was actually dead, and was forced to watch his friends die in the club’s bathroom.
“My adrenaline was going through the roof.
I couldn’t believe it,” Hagg recalled.
“This is what happens when you get your adrenaline high.
And the next thing you know, you’re on the ground with my friend in the bathroom and he’s laying on the floor with a bullet in his head.”
Hagg was forced into hiding in the underground club for two months, but eventually he made it back to the club with the help of a friend.
“There was a girl that was with me in the night,” Hager said.
Hagers friends had just gotten married and they were on their way to pick up their daughter.
When they got there, the club manager called Hagg to ask if he was okay.
“What did you want me to tell him?”
“Do you know who killed him?,” the manager asked.
Hagging explained that he was going to call the police and get them to come and look for him.
“They said they were going to be there in five minutes,” Hag recalled.
Hagger got his name, address, phone number, and a call to his girlfriend’s apartment.
When he got to her apartment, he saw her dead body and the bullet in her head.
“It was kind of a dark place, but I felt so blessed,” Hags told TechCrunch.
Hags girlfriend said that her mother had to tell her about the death of her boyfriend.
“She just told me, ‘You know, we all feel so blessed.
We’re all very grateful that you’re alive,'” Hags said.
Eventually, Hags was able to track down his friend’s body and find the club owner.
“We didn’t know if we were going or not, but we just decided we’re going,” Hagers said.
Within hours of getting back to his apartment, Hagan was told that the police were on the way and that the club would be closing down.
Hagen told TechBuzz that the owner had been a friend of his for 20 or 30 years and was a “kind and kind man.”
Hagan and his team had to make sure that Hagan would be allowed to return to the strip clubs that he had worked in.
“The police did come out, and I told them what was going on, and they let us go,” Hagen said.
But Hagan wasn’t allowed to leave LA because he was still a licensed escort.
He spent six months living with a group of friends before he eventually returned to LA.
“As a result of the experience, I am much more aware
