Escort Advertising Sites – Now backpage is gone where can I post?

In the past 24hrs many escort sites have disappeared and its been very stressful for us all but it’s not the end of the world. I promise :)

Backpage only started 5 or so years ago and we were all fine before backpage and we will all be fine again

Backpage was the top of google – the basic SEO reason for why backpage was the top of google was because we all posted ads on there all day every day giving it unique content & a zillion pages for google to crawl – so as it had the most ads and the most pages and the most of everything so it was top of google

Now backpage and Cracker no longer exist, other sites will go the top of google

I have been checking sites for the past 2 hours or so to see what is online  - It’s 2.16pm on Sunday April 8 in Sydney and it’s possible this list will change in the coming hours but many of these options are outside the US so they should stay up
Many ad sites are pushing themselves as the new great options but don’t pay for anything new as there are so many free options already.   Most of the sites I have listed below have free options, use the free, you don’t need to pay

Escorts, don’t waste you money paying for a site unless a site is in the top 5 positions on google page 1 – use google to check where various sites show up using the main terms like ‘escort sydney’ ‘sydney escort ‘ etc

Google rankings move around but generally if a site is on the first page it will probably be there for a while

Reviews an annoying part of life

I don’t think anybody in business particularly likes reviews.

I didn’t particularly like reviews as an escort, I don’t love them as an agency but the scariest reviews in my life were when I owned a cafe

Random internet people review a $4 coffee in such great detail, people can be so f*cking brutal! There is a review site dedicated to coffee Beanhunter plus tripadvisor, yelp and google reviews just to name a few.

A shitty review of your $4 cappuccino is upsetting; even though you know your cappuccino is awesome and you have a queue of regulars outside your cafe every day of the week, the bad review hurts your feelings. It’s not a nice feeling being judged.

Online there is a review for everything! Every service & business in the world even small inexpensive items are reviewed

The Target $10 essentials 2 Slice Toaster has 11 reviews and is 45% recommended: https://www.target.com.au/p/essentials-2-slice-toaster/54997707 I am sure if the toaster could talk it would not be happy lol 

I recently bought a Dyson fan, it’s quite average and I am considering writing a review cause f*ck me it cost $750!!!   I feel ripped off. The fan is pretty but its is not what I was lead to believe from the marketing and not what I think it should be for $750!

Escort reviews are a sensitive topic and review sites are regularly slandered on Twitter.

I see ladies happily promote ad sites where reviews are for marketing purpses (fakes and positive only) yet the sites with real reviews cop an infinite amount of crap

Having been an escort for many years I totally understand why escorts don’t like reviews or review sites

What happens at an escort meeting is very personal but it’s also a very expensive paid experience and like all paid services is subjective to reviews

Reading reviews about yourself is very confronting, and particularly distressing if you don’t like what is written. Having your personality, looks, sex techniques and everything else imaginable analysed publicly is tough

Some escorts have fantastic busy escort careers without a single review but I am not sure how I would have done without my reviews on TER, Captain69 & Punternet.  Maybe I would have been fine without any but I will never know

Many clients told me it was my positive reviews that helped them decide to meet me.  Review sites got me noticed locally and helped me tour internationally

It takes 2 to tango and even the best reviewed girl may not be the best girl for every gent but a few good reviews lessens the odds that a gent will have a terrible experience

My reviews proved to gents that my photos were real and the information on my website was true, not just marketing drivel

My reviews brought me a lot of really wonderful gents, mostly readers not writers of reviews.  Many weren’t members of the reviews sites but I linked my reviews to my site so they could view them.  It’s a teeny tiny percentage of clients that write reviews and many members of review sites don’t even review

As an escort I found review sites and forums helpful to learn things about the industry and how other top escorts did things. As an agency I find reviews sites helpful to understand what guys are looking for and I use forums and chat rooms to show myself as being an honest, straightforward person and a reputable agent

Having been on these sites for 18 years I agree there is plenty of stupid and sometimes quite degrading shit posted on escort forums but the same goes for all public forums and social media.

Look at Twitter, Facebook or Reddit, the amount of stupid shit posted there is plentiful

Over the years I have had the occasional fake/revenge review posted but mostly reviews are 1 gents experience written from his point of view.

All review sites allow an escort or agency to rebuttal their reviews.  I have found a well penned rebuttal can be great PR and bring in new clients even if the review itself is a bit shite

I have also found that by communicating honestly and respectfully with review sites they have been pretty good in helping me with any problems that have arisen

The current review sites are made by men for men to help men; us girls are not part of the equation.

We can whinge and complain all we like but review sites weren’t created for us, they are made for guys to lessen the possibility of wasting their hard earned money on a bad experience

If I had my own review site it would be different to what currently exists but I don’t own a review site nor can I be arsed to create one so I just deal with what there is

Ladies if you want a review site that is done the way you want it done – create one yourself, problem solved.

Like them or loathe them, reviews are a part of modern life and here to stay

2017 was not the kindest year

2017. What a year you were. I am so happy you are over but you taught me so much and I am starting 2018 in a very different mindset than I started 2017

February 2017 we returned to Sydney, I was sad to be leaving our happy life in Asia but also excited to get Atlantic Australia back on track

On reflection 2017 was a total shitshow, had I known then what I know now I would have talked hubby into staying put. I miss living in Asia so much but after such a painful 2017 moving back now would be defeatist

2017 I learnt lessons, tough ones. The escort industry in Australia has not progressed, it’s meaner, more cliquey, more narcissistic and now it seems everyone’s an expert yet a lot of what I see is the blind leading the blind or girls taking advantage of others

As privates flood Asia with their nastiness and bullshit, Asia has lost its lustre for me as well.

Clients have told me they have booked privates & been told not to book with Atlantic, we take all the girls money & treat girls badly. In Asia one Atlantic escort pays $0, all other ladies touring pay 10-30% & many escorts with Atlantic have worked with us on & off for years. Intelligent woman choose to tour with us so it can’t be so bad…

Privates have facebook groups dedicated to sharing information about gents & tours in Asia. According to a reliable source I get a nasty mention or 2 in particular I get blamed for getting girls busted airports. Yeah I have the airport on speed dial, these girls dates and faces are all over the internet but it’s me (of course lol)   It’s so stupid!

Privates feel its Ok to try to ruin the tours of the Atlantic angels and slander me personally because the ladies choose to outsource their admin to Atlantic & have a fun, safe, well managed, stress free tour…

All businesses outsource so why is it wrong if an escort outsources openly to a business like Atlantic?

Apparently it’s OK to pay 40%+ to a PA or mentor, who pretends to be you but not pay less $$s to a reputable and legal business…. Go figure?

I don’t want to change; I am honest, I am tenacious, I have integrity and I do not intend to change my business model nor take advantage of woman or lie to gents to get ahead here. I do not understand what is so wrong with honesty but in Australia it seems to be a problem

Having a private profile online doesn’t make a lady the top of the SW pyramid. Especially as maybe 10% of private ads are truly independent escorts. It drives me nuts

For these reasons I am quite adamant that 2018 will be my last year as Sarah

I finished high school 27 years ago but it feels like I am back there now with this job, its tiring, it’s upsetting and I just don’t want to do it anymore

When I told my hubby my decision he said but ‘why? you are an expert, you have 18 years experience and you are great at what you do’ I explained to him that in Australia as I am ex-escort I don’t count, here the advice of a current SW with 6 months experience seems to have more merit than my 18 years

It is what it is and I can either be upset by it or let it go

I am going into 2018 with my head held high & focusing on being proud of all I have achieved and all the people I have helped in the past 18 years.

I have mentored many successful escorts and enriched the lives of many people

I have never been greedy, I have always focused on the reputation of my business, the happiness of the girls and gents & being the hardest worker in the room

For many years I have neglected myself & my happiness to ensure other people’s needs are fulfilled which is silly as where are they now?

In 2018 I intend to take better care of myself physically and mentally

In 2018 I intend to focus on what I know I do. Rather than the lies that are spread on social media perpetuating hate for agencies, which I find hard to not take personally

Atlantic is a business that supports escorts. I call it an agency but maybe I could do like others are doing and give it a new fandangled name. But I am too old to care. I know what I do, the girls who choose Atlantic are happy & the gents who choose to book with us are happy so who cares about keyboard warriors

I have loved my job and done my job for many years but that love affair is over. Bitches killed it

2017 on reflection was an awful year and I’m grateful for every sacrifice made and all the sleepless nights as I was repeatedly let down by others

The stress of 2017 financially was mountainous, it was an awful year for staff and business in general.  I dealt with massive piles of crap successfully.  I should be proud of getting through it all & not throwing myself off the gap

Man-up 2018 because I’m going to be brave and do things that challenge me and spend less time doing things for others who in return give me nothing

I’m going to stay positive and kind hearted while I remove those negative peeps with their negative vibes from my life

Australian Escort Marketing

On Twitter yesterday a UK based escort posted an email she had received from a Sydney based private offering escort tours to Australia.  There was mention of it being an agency, but it’s not an agency, it’s just a escort trying to cash in on other escorts

I have said it many times before, an Escort Agency is a legit business.  An Escort Agency should NOT to be confused with a person who sends emails offering girls the chance to work for them or a person who places private ads for other escorts and takes commission or a person who creates fake ads on cracker

An escort agency is a business and when managed correctly is a very helpful service for both escorts and gents alike

Being a business we rely heavily on our reputation and honesty is a cornerstone of our business. Our ladies are what makes us, without our happy ladies we would not be in operation

Our motto is Happy Ladies = Happy Clients = Happy Agency

In the past few years advertising sites such Private Girls and Scarlet Blue have taken over the Australian Escort market; they exclude legitimate businesses such as Atlantic

Unfortunately these “private-only” sites and their marketing have created a divide where agency escorts are frowned upon as are the escorts who choose to work with a legit agency

In Australia there is never ending anti- agency rhetoric, don’t book with agencies as they are rotten and dodgy and take the ladies’ hard-earned money.  For the record, a lady chooses to work with an agency and is aware of the costs involved before she starts and can leave at any time she wishes.

With the private niche in mind, shonky operators no longer create agencies, they create private profiles.  They are rip off merchants but they are NOT an escort agency

A PA may be someone charging 50% commission; a private profile may be managed by a dude working via SMS only with him pretending to be a female escort….These are NOT escort agencies

Private only niche sites aren’t exclusively independent private escorts; it only means you can’t find the girls’ same photos on a website that calls itself an agency as this would ruin the ‘private only’ marketing.

This marketing is important to these sites as it means privates will continue to pay for ads as will all the shady characters – and there are more of those in Australia than there are legit run businesses

In Australia the escort business is now just all smoke & mirrors

I found it amusing when Scarlet Blue announced they will include Agencies when they launch their UK advertising site.  After perpetuating disdain towards agencies and agency escorts in Australia for many years, they will allow agencies to advertise in the UK. Agencies have the market share in the UK so I guess agencies are OK now? It’s not about the money or anything like that…. No course not haha

Of course it’s all about money!  Advertising sites are for making profit. An advertising site is created with advertising dollars in mind, it’s not about gents or escorts, the private only niche is the one that pulls in the most advertising dollars in Australia

Private only sites work well in Australia as historically Australia had some pretty shitty agencies but that’s not the case anymore. It’s hard to keep an agency afloat when there is so much disdain for us and in all honestly some months when we have no girls available, we truly struggle.  We don’t lack clients or calls, we lack escorts who will join us because we are an agency and honest about it

As SB and PG are the top of google some agencies will just have 2 photosets for their escorts so they can take advantage of both agency and private but mostly nobody bothers doing an agency anymore as they are expensive to create and manage & a private profile + twitter is a much cheaper option.

I have heard at interviews the cost of working with these big name escorts who manage other escorts and the PA’s and the madams who use SMS only to pretend to be the private, they charge higher fees to the escorts than we do.  1 escort told me recently she was being charged 40% to have her private profile & twitter managed for her by a madam who pretended to be her

This isn’t fair to ladies who are truly independent private escorts and spend every day working on their escort brand, handling their own calls, emails and marketing

It’s also unfair to all the ladies who don’t wish to handle their own calls and admin and choose to work honestly with an agency

Since Agency Atlantic opened our Sydney Office in 2013 we have maintained our presence as a credible, reputable honest Escort Agency; An agency with real and recent photos, great girls, honest information. Our ladies are involved in their marketing, work whenever they choose to and we say in all ads that we are an agency so callers know they are speaking to a receptionist and not to the lady directly. We are doing the right thing but cop crap for being honest….  Go figure ha

The difference between agency and independent is who does the admin.  That’s all it is.  Private escorts and independent escorts are not the same thing

It’s all just marketing I know but I do sometimes wish I could stop being truthful.  I could probably retire by the end of 2018 if that was the case

Escort Industry Stigma

Screenshot_20171030-121057.jpg

On twitter you often see someone complaining about escort stigma

One standout tweet for me was from a blurred face girl charging $600 per hour complaining how hard it is being a stigmatised sexworker

Stigma doesn’t affect just sex workers, it affects many people in society for circumstances they find themselves in and/or various choices they have made past or present

There is stigma being a Mcdonald’s worker making $12 an hour;  there is stigma attached to a person’s sexual orientation, background; schooling … the list is endless

Sexwork will never be a mainstream job. It will always have people debating if it’s right or wrong. People have opinions and most people don’t feel sorry for escorts raking in big amounts of cash especially when they themselves are doing 50hrs a week in a shitty job to feed their family

An office worker may have to get up to go to work at 6am and many not return home until 6pm.  This 12hrs a day, 5 days a week brings them in a whopping great $700 a week after tax. I know many escorts who make that in an hour or 2

Sexworkers can earn more than lawyers who endure years at university so they can be treated like a dog in a law firm for 10 years before they start earning over $100,000pa

Sex work has flexible hours and generally has much higher rates of pay than most work

Sex work is work – yes that is very true and and sometimes it’s not very nice work and while it may be socially unacceptable to many, it pays incredibly well.  Personally I would prefer the $600 an hour with some stigma to a McDonalds job any day

I am not trying to downplay how much stigma hurts, I have been there, I have copped it, It’s brutal and very upsetting

When I was an escort I told a close friend I was escorting. She was so shocked and disgusted that to this day she has never spoken to me

A friend’s friend found my photo on the internet. He cornered me at a party and assumed I would shag him. It was degrading, he called me a filthy whore & said that he was hotter than “the desperate old dudes” I did for cash. He thought I was was a gold digger, low life, human garbage

That’s just 2 examples and trust me there is plenty more times that I copped stigma and hate for my choice to be an escort

I was a computer professional working at a big firm in the City (London) when I started escorting at age 28. People ask how I got started & why and how Atlantic came about

My initial start wasn’t the best; I trusted a girl who told me she was a high class escort in New York.  I had a break up and was feeling low so she said I should come visit her in NYC.  I said I couldn’t afford it & she told me she could get me some work like she did to help pay for me to visit her in NYC.  I thought what an exciting adventure; a secret life experience for a week.

When I got to NYC she dumped me in an illegal brothel where I spent my first night scared, alone, crying my eyes out and annoyed at myself for being so naive.

It turned out fine, I did 2 weeks in NYC then I went back to London and that’s where I joined a top reviewed UK agency and met my amazing Mentor, Victoria. Victoria took me under her wing and helped me become a credible and sought after London Escort

Escorting made me feel like a superhero.  The normal me was shy and a bit awkward but the escort me was fucking fantastic. The sexy, saucy, naughty person I would have been if I wasn’t shy and awkward lol

I tried doing some independent work but found I preferred being with an agency.  I wasn’t prepared (nor had the time) for the number of calls, SMS, timewasters and admin. I enjoyed being an escort but I already did 40hrs a week at my day job so it suited me better to have someone handle all my escort arrangements

My rates started at £300 for an hour of which I happily paid 30% to my agency. The agency answered all my calls, recommended me to their clients and paid for my photos, ads etc.  It worked perfectly for me, I had discretion and work/life harmony

In time I ended up doing my own website & use my IT skill to travel the globe as an International touring escort (way before it was a ‘thing’ that everyone did). Back then there wasn’t many advertising sites nor social media so it was fun to use my IT skills to create something that helped me travel for free

I started Atlantic using my IT background and all I had learnt from my London agent, my mentor, chats with clients, chats with other escorts and working myself as an independent escort

I love running Atlantic, I am proud of what I have created and I get joy from the happiness my work gives to others.  Happy Escorts and Happy Clients :)

Since moving to Australia in 2013 I have worked very hard to get established in a country where agencies cop a lot of hate.  Historically agencies were pretty low-grade, many treated their ladies very poorly but I am not that type of person and Atlantic isn’t that type of Agency

Once again I am stigmatised but now it comes from the industry; sex workers, clients and anyone involved in the SW industry think it’s ok to call me names and perpetuate untruths

People who have never met me, worked with me, know anyone who has worked with me or have any knowledge whatsoever of the job I do 70hrs a week seem to think it’s OK to stigmatise me because the business I created and am proud of has the name ‘Agency’ in the title

As I refer to Atlantic as an agency I am banned from some of the well known advertising sites for ‘marketing reasons’.  However, I am allowed to advertises on this sites if I choose to be dishonest.  I need to take down the agency website and give each escort a different phone number for me to manage as a PA.  Go figure…. Dishonesty is being rewarded and honesty is not allowed

As I am involved in ‘management’ I cannot be involved in any discussions about sex workers or sex workers rights or be accepted as part of the sex work community

Part of my job is I help ladies keep sane, safe & happy in an industry that can be unfriendly and hurtful but I am not allowed to attend Sex Worker Forums or be part of any sex worker groups

I have been in the escort industry for 18 years, I escorted as well as ran Atlantic for many of those years but in Australia I am referred to as a pimp or madam, words used to demean my work & make my legal business sound dodgy, dishonest and potentially dangerous.

I was a stigmatised sex worker & now by moving countries I am now a stigmatised business owner

My work isn’t seen as work, I am accused of using women and taking their money which is definitely not the case.  I spend my days doing jobs I enjoy and making other people happy.  I love my job and won’t be giving up anytime soon.  I just wish that rather than call me names people would ask what I do & maybe learn a little more than just assume I am some filthy pimp type character

My job is 95% admin, Atlantic is a pty ltd company paying both GST and taxes and I receive a modest salary.  Not very dodgy….  But ho-hum

I would love my work to be seen as work in the Australian escort community but I doubt that will ever happen

So Stigma – whatever;  I have a salary and a superannuation plan and spend my days doing a job I love so it’s not so bad really

Escort Interview – Australian Beauty Kate

Why did you choose to become an Escort? 

I love meeting new people, new experiences, having fun and making other people feel special and happy. Escorting felt like a very natural step for me, and still does. It also gave me an excuse to expand my lingerie collection!!

If I wasn’t an escort, my life wouldn’t be nearly as exciting or fulfilling. Escorting has taught me that you really can learn something new from everyone you meet; it has broadened my mind in ways I never expected. 

Why did you choose to work with Agency Atlantic?

About 4 years ago, I interviewed with several agencies in Sydney, but didn’t end up working with any of them as it just didn’t feel right. Having the freedom to choose my own working hours was important to me because I have a full time day job in the corporate sector and need to be able to work around my other commitments – but as far as those agencies were concerned, this just wasn’t an option.

Then, over 3 years ago I was introduced to Sarah from Agency Atlantic through a friend, and the rest is history! Sarah’s expertise is second to none, and Agency Atlantic is a premier agency with a great reputation, both in Australia and elsewhere in the world. I was proud to join a professional, caring and respectful team, where I had the freedom to be myself, and set my own working hours, but also where I had the support I knew I needed to succeed.

Why have you stayed with Agency Atlantic so long and not become a private / independent escort? 

There are many reasons, but these are my top 3, in no particular order:

1. Working with Agency Atlantic enables me to focus my energy and attention on what I enjoy most: having a great time with someone. If I also had to do the admin work associated with escorting, which is very time-consuming – Sarah and her team work incredibly hard – I just don’t think I would enjoy myself as much, or have a good work/life balance. This is one of the reasons I’ve never been particularly interesed in working as an independent escort.

2. Living and working in Sydney, I’ve also had the privilege of getting to know many of the other Atlantic ladies, all of whom have been an absolute pleasure to work with. I can boast that I have some of the coolest and most gorgeous colleagues in the world!

3. The Atlantic members and clients are awesome company, and some of my favourite people to spend time with. I genuinely look forward to each and every meeting because it doesn’t feel like I’m meeting a stranger; but rather someone who Bec or Sarah have spoken to and know I’ll get along well with.

What are some of your turn-ons? 

Good manners, a well-dressed man (and/or woman!), a smile, and being touched. I love being touched! Also, kissing.

And your turn-offs? 

Poor hygiene.

A client is in town and fancies a night out on the town; Where do you take him? 

I’d take him to a rooftop bar where we can drink fine wine and enjoy a great view. Sydney is best experienced outdoors, especially in the summer

How often do you travel, and what’s your favourite place to visit?

I travel frequently, but I’m always open to hearing suggestions for where to visit next! I love the Caribbean for its tropical beaches and rich history.

Where would you love to go next?

I am visiting Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Hong Kong in November this year, and I’m really looking forward to it. I haven’t been to Europe yet and would love to visit the Greek Islands, Spain, Portugal and Italy, to name a few. I’d also love to visit Tokyo.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Hawaii for its great beaches, breath-taking landscapes, wildlife and friendly people. I’m not a huge fan of American food in general, but traditional Hawaiian food is both fresh and delicious.

3 things you can’t live without?

A goal or ambition, coffee, and sunshine.

What’s your favourite type of rendezvous?

A longer booking or a dinner date – because it feels just like a real date and it’s always memorable! Getting to know someone well makes our time together more intimate and enjoyable.

Top 3 tips for clients to ensure they have a great time with you

1. Come ready to have a great time – so will I!

2.     If you have a particular fantasy, experience or request in mind that would make our time together extra special, please be sure to let me know.

3. Be yourself – I would love to get to know the real you.

Sydney has so many great restaurants. Name your top 5:

  1. Ananas

  2. Alpha

  3. Saké

  4. Café Sydney

  5. Spice Temple

Which feature do others compliment you on the most?

In terms of first impressions, my legs! People comment that my legs are very long, even for my height.

Once someone gets to know me, I am often told I am engaging, fun, and friendly.

Do you genuinely enjoy longer bookings?

Always. An unrushed experience is one we can both savour and enjoy together.

What’s your favourite cuisine?

I love most cuisines, but if I had to pick just one favourite, it would be French.

Favourite cocktail?

Moscow Mule

What type of events do you enjoy?

Live comedy, musicals and dancing.

What sports activities do you do?

I take freestyle dance classes and I also do strength and conditioning training.

Who or what bores you?

Long movies

What is your most memorable escort booking?

Being flown to Cairns (Queensland, Australia) for an evening. It was my first time flying business class!

What is your favourite quote?

“A negative mind will never give you a positive life” – Ziad K. Abdelnour

Being an escort is about giving, but it is also about receiving. What is one of your favourite intimacies your client can do for you?

I love back massages – I carry a lot of tension in my shoulders, so a back massage always makes me feel happy and relaxed

How do you spend your down time.  What’s your idea of relaxation?

I love to read fiction and autobiographies. I also love being in/near water, so you would find me by the pool or at the beach, reading a book!

Do you have plans to tour with Atlantic?

Yes I do! I will be touring for the first time in November and I’m so excited.

My Tour dates are:
Kuala Lumpur – November 4-8
Singapore – November 9-11
Hong Kong – November 13-18

Running an escort agency – more than meets the eye – Part 1

Last Tuesday night, I saw on Twitter that an agency was slammed by escorts for tweeting that a girl they had worked with was a thief.   Maybe they shouldn’t haven’t called her a thieving c**t but isn’t the C-word a term that is used for someone who has been rude, disrespectful and stolen money that wasn’t rightfully theirs?

From my experience, I would estimate the agency had done 20+ hours of work to plan, advertise and manage the 2 tours they did for the escort. Additional online advertising for this individual escorts tour would have cost perhaps a few hundred dollars (on top of their normal agency overheads)

An agency works speculatively; I know I spend a lot of time and money on a tour with the expectation of being paid at the end.  It’s very upsetting when you put your time, effort and money into a tour and receive nothing but a ‘F*CK YOU’ in return

An Escorts joins an agency by choice, and costs are explained to her before the agency starts work.  If an escort doesn’t like the payment structure, she doesn’t have to join she can tour as an Independent.  Instead of paying, just as any contractor would, this girl has decided to keep the money for herself.

Due to the twitter slander the agency received they posted ‘Agency = Devil, Thief = Angel’ which summed up what had gone down on twitter

Escort Agency Slander

I have been in this biz for 17 years and have met a lot of escorts, some of whom have gone on to create their own agencies. Also, how can you be sure that an agency owner isn’t still escorting?  Some I know still do so under the radar, I toured with Atlantic for years haha

I totally agree that there are some really shitty agencies.  That said, bad businesses exist in every industry.  It’s not fair to judge every agency the same way and I for one am so sick and tired of being judged for someone else’s shitty behaviour.

A bit of background – I was a contract Analyst/Programmer in the banking sector. I escorted part time whilst doing my day job and in 2002 I started Atlantic.  As a contractor I was paid an hourly rate, the client was charged a higher rate by the company I got my work from… so a similar business model to an escort agency but companies providing computer contractors aren’t slandered for being the devil. They are called a business….

I don’t regret my choice of becoming an escort or becoming Sarah as I have enjoyed both roles.   Every day as Sarah is different, it’s dynamic and never boring. The hours are long and it can be super stressful and sometimes heartbreaking (people can be nasty – see twitter for many examples)

My job is a job and it gets tiresome listening to the same rhetoric from private escorts in Australia that agencies are the devil.  In London (where Atlantic was started) a very high percentage of escorts choose to work with agencies (sometimes the do agency + independent).  Many international touring escorts choose to work with either an agency or a PA service that specialises in touring as we have invaluable experience, information, contacts and the all-important banned clients lists.

Last week I decided I would document my day, to show how much work does go into running an agency and that perhaps this might shift a few people’s perspectives…

Thursday September 21

Today Bec isn’t working so I am the receptionist 10am until 1am.  I am taking calls, replying to SMS, whatsapp and emails also chatting to girls all day on whatsapp about this or that and being kept up to date with their day/availability

8am
I am super tired this morning as I couldn’t get to sleep til about 3am – i need coffee so out I go to get one

I turn on my phone to a stack of WhatsApp messages

I talk to an escort in Paris regarding an upcoming tour that she wishes to do

I talk to a London escort regarding a NYC tour to check the rates she wants and discuss marketing + hotel options with her etc

I message an escort who is touring Dubai to check what rates and dates she has decided to do. I am waiting on her confirmation so I can write the newsletter and have all the tours listed on it

9am
Bec dropped over to give me the agency phone, We have a chat about work stuff

9.30am
Update girls pages, add girls to available today gallery on Atlantic Sydney & Atlantic International.  Add tweets to Hootsuite

9.55am
Message each lady and double check she is available as per her schedules.Check if the lady has things on that I need to book around.  See how long they need to get to outcalls today etc

Confirm today’s pre-bookings with clients and add notes to schedules

10.15am
Read thru an SEO report & run a couple of diagnostic tools – I am a little obsessed about SEO at the moment but excited now I am doing it myself and seeing results. Read a couple of articles and play with an SEO tool. Lose track of time lol

11.04am

Get in the shower – I got thru a shower without my phone ringing which is always nice :)

The worst is when you are dripping wet & cold answering questions, it’s usually just when your teeth start to chatter from the cold, they say ‘thanks for that, I will call you back’  They are the question guys, they want to discuss a booking that will never ever take place.

I don’t discuss sexual services.  An escort gives us a list, we add it to her page, she approves it and we change it if she asks for changes; that’s the extent of my involvement. It’s her body & her choice.  I make arrangements, the nitty gritty is between the escort and the client and none of my business.

11.10am
Editing and re-writing this blog to make a bit more sense – Writing is so time consuming, I wish I could just blog directly like some ladies do.  My brain is better at analysis than writing.

11.47am
Ask one of the girls to read my opening paragraph & see if she thinks my blog is dumb or interesting.  I am lucky to work with some ladies who enjoy writing and help me edit my blogs

12 Noon
Check escorts in Asia are awake and available today as per their schedule and check what plans they have that I need to book around and also see if they want additional meetings to their pre-bookings.

12.28pm
I receive a call from a private who wants to apply to us.  We chat for 15mins, damn I am a chatterbox sometimes, note to self; stop that!.  She seems really nice so & I will meet her in October & see if we want to work together

1.05pm
I finally get a reply from the escort I messaged this morning regarding Dubai.  She is arriving tomorrow! Luckily her tour isn’t exclusive and I can do it just for members :)

She is going to send her photos to me so while I wait for those I need to crack on with the newsletter and get that out today so members know about her tour

1.35pm
Start newsletter :(  Goodbye blog, back in a while

1.58pm
Microwave meal for lunch – no time to go out today!

2.42pm
Talk to Bianca on the phone for 10mins – I gotta get back to newsletter

Whoops now I got side tracked with a whatsapp chat with another agency owner – Must do newsletter….

Whatsapp is going nuts – this afternoon everyone seems to want to chat I have 6 whatsapp conversations on the go right now – I like a chat and anything is more fun than the newsletter ha

4.30pm
Head outside to get a takeaway coffee – I look like a hobo in a sparkly cap lol

4.42pm
Back at my desk – phone keeps ringing, trying to write the newsletter is a struggle with the phones going off at the same time! I need more pairs of hands!

6.03pm
Double checking information with a girl on tour – I think the info she put on her schedule may not be 100% correct – looks like the info is slightly wrong so now I need to update site and ads

6.30pm
Just checked Margo’s schedule to add it to the newsletter & it’s exploded with a tonne of new places that I have never toured before.  Looks like I am reading and researching a lot this weekend  - Luckily Margo always does her own research but I like to have some clue myself before I do a tour; I don’t like to look like a dumb dumb and not know where a city is.

7pm
Hubby is home from work so I ask him to proof read newsletter.  It’s not my best effort but it will do it’s job – my brain is starting to feel a bit mushy from staring at a screen so long so going to take a walk to refresh and get some food & another coffee

7.50pm
I am back without food but have un-mushed my brain enough to download the newsletter subscribers and get this news letter out :)  HURRAH

8.15pm
Just got a message from a London girl to say her tour dates have changed – Updating newsletter, luckily I haven’t sent it yet and updating website

I need to do tour promo too but they can go on my to do list tomorrow. The to-do list I did nothing from today (haha!)

8.39pm
Newsletter subscribers downloaded & uploaded to email but I am tired and I know I will make a mistake if I sent now. I will check the newsletter tomorrow first thing

Moving to sofa to watch TV & will take calls until 1am.  Calls are the end result of all the other work that goes into the day to day running of an Escort Agency

10.30pm
Editing this blog. I think I like it but will ask a friend to have a read

11.07pm
I really should make some graphics to use tomorrow for promo, get a head start on the day.  I Make some pretty little gifs and mess about with an app that create videos.  Its 1am before I know it & time for bed :)

I have documented Friday too – See Part 2

Running an escort agency – more than meets the eye – Part 2

FRIDAY September 22

Today Bec isn’t working and I am the receptionist 10am until 1am

8.36am
I turn on the agency phone and my Sarah phone and reply to whatsapp messages from bed. Flick thru our twitter accounts

My hands are really hurting today.  I have RSI due to so many hours on computer and phone so I pop anti-inflammatories, cover my hands in deep heat & put on sexy gloves so I can work with my hands covered in stinky stuff haha

9am
Sit at my desk, proofread Newsletter.  Calls are coming in already; why can’t people read our operating hours?  A disgusting pig of a man just swore at me for being a receptionist.  Joy lol

Lucky I didn’t sent newsletter last night as it’s missing things, I should have it out by 10am

9.54am
Newsletter is going out now – Hurrah

10am
Same as yesterday –  do available today pages, check in with the girls

Do Sydney hootsuite for today, tomorrow & Sunday

10.53am
Update the members list – Download the current list & upload to phone

11.10am
Add newsletter to the blog – I need to create graphics but dropbox is missing some folders so tidy folders and searching for missing bits as I go.  Grrrr

12noon
Check in with Asia ladies – reconfirm prebookings

12.10pm
Dropbox is sorted so I can do blog graphic – newsletter is on the blog :)

12.24pm
I notice on of the website galleries has a problem so I contact web company to see what the problem is – annoying

12.30pm
Finally I can get in the shower :)

12.40pm
Message girl to confirm our 2pm interview – no reply

12.50pm
Chat to Bianca on the phone, chat to Kim – Bianca is coming over & bringing me lunch :)

Kim has sent me some tour dates – Add those to the site & run through the promo with her that she wants done.  Talk some rubbish,make some jokes, research some new hotel options.

1.20pm
Bianca brings lunch, she bought sushi.  We had a good look & laugh at my old escorting photos – I was a bit of a hottie even if I do say so myself haha

2pm
Leave office and walk to train station.  I need to go to the accountant to sign some papers. Will do now as interview girl never replied :(

2.25pm
Waiting for a train

2.45pm
Papers signed & I have time to get my eyebrows threaded. I am meeting up with an escort later and I look like a mess, not a good first impression lol

3.35pm
On train back to the office

4pm
Updating and posting tour ads while I have a catchup with Zoe on the phone

5.30pm
Start to write sheet for our upcoming tours with all the information for Dani, my USA assistant – I am tired :( There is no way I am getting out tonight to meet anyone, my to do list has grown in the past 2hrs :(

The phone keeps ringing so looks like this document is going to take a long time :(

7.23pm
Girl missed her flight – bugger bugger bugger – Tour started today, waiting to know if or when she is arriving so I can shuffle & move things

Running an agency means that if something goes wrong for one of the girls, I am the person responsible for communicating and dealing with it. Missed flights can happen to anyone. Luckily, her tour was exclusive to members so it wasn’t an administrative disaster, but it could have been. Sometimes, girls have just failed to show up, changed plans without notice (when confirmed bookings and been lined up and I’ve spent several hundred dollars on their individual advertising for that city alone) and left me to deal with a mess. Things happen, I understand this working as an escort myself.  There’s nothing I can do. Sometimes we lose clients because of this, not to mention the time it takes to fix or redo everything

8.15pm
I have food & now I have wine but phone won’t stop so looks like I am in for the night, talking shit with Elizabeth on whatsapp and half arsed writing reception documentation – yes sometimes my day is fun but mostly it’s just admin, admin & some more admin

10pm
I am done in, my hands are aching so I pop pain relief and head to the sofa for Netflix & answering calls til 1am

Please Be Kind

Sarah's 2 cents - please be kind

As much as I love my job, sometimes I struggle to get out of bed; I want to hide from the world; I want to close the business that I am proud of and I have worked on every day for 15 years.

My job isn’t about me. I support others all day long & sometimes, if someone asks me how my day is, it may be the first time I have been asked that in a week!

I don’t always share my feelings, but I am writing this blog hoping it offers me catharsis. When I am feeling down, there is no time for me to wallow and be self indulgent because I have work to do. If I don’t work then none of the girls earn.  It’s my job to ensure girls are making money and achieving their financial goals, and that they are safe, happy and have a great work/life balance. This is always my priority, ahead of my own needs. I am good at my job, I love my job, I work hard and the girls I work with are lovely; my struggle doesn’t come from them.

Today a client asked me how I was, he said nice things about me and Atlantic Agency. He made a joke about how I must never sleep, as he always can get onto me when he needs to chat.  I started crying (which I know, must seem like a strange reaction), feeling so overwhelmed by how my work doesn’t always go unappreciated. It was so nice to hear especially given how I feel right now …

What I struggle with is the hate I get from random women in this industry- especially women from Australia.  Women who have never met me or even know someone who has met me.  I have heard from numerous clients that escorts have told them not to book with Atlantic and they say I don’t belong in the industry. I don’t understand how that can be, when the industry has been a big part of most of my adult life. The adult industry that has always been my home and the place I belonged, and still belong.

Coming back to Australia, I feel ostracized, like I am a leper and I am treated with disdain. Girls who come to me for advice or when they are feeling blue do so behind the scenes – they don’t back me up for me on social media and ‘Actually, I know Sarah, she is lovely and she helps me all the time’. I know I shouldn’t care, but I do.

These same women who hate me and slander agencies do, however, like the Agency Atlantic website; they particularly like the tour calendar to see who we have touring which city and to see where they might like to go. If Atlantic is doing a tour to a city then they assume it must be paved with gold, but that’s not true. Atlantic has wonderful clients and our tours are primarily for our clients with the occasional new gent. We do our utmost to keep our reputation solid and the girls we represent are amazing so this helps!

I was one of the first online private escorts to tour Dubai and some Asian cities and Atlantic is the first agency to tour regularly in Dubai and South East Asia.  Before Backpage, Massage Republic and the Naughty Networks Websites, these cities were really hard to tour as there were no advertising platforms, no Twitter, no texting or WhatsApp.

It took me endless hours of research to work out how to make these tours work. Once I got the way to promote them sorted, then came the travel arrangements… last but not least, teaching clients how to book.

In many cities clients had no idea how to book or what to do when they met the escort.  They didn’t understand girls were touring solo without a manager, that bookings were taken in London, and many didn’t know what an incall was.  Much of the booking process involved teaching a gent what was going to happen before the meeting, to pay at the start in cash and all that.

The tours we do I did myself as an escort with Atlantic.  I always trialled new tour cities myself to iron out any issues before I would considering arranging for anyone else.

Initially for new cities we would do 0% commission tours for Atlantic escorts until it was at a stage where we could take a fee.  The company would lose money on each & every tour to a new city – but I loved doing new cities. They may take a lot of time to research but I love doing that research, I find it fascinating, learning about new countries, cultures and laws.  It’s also my responsibility to the girls who wish to tour with us to have as much knowledge as possible

I’m hesitant now to outlay the same time and effort, having seen private escorts take the resources I’ve spend time and money on for their own. With cities flooded with touring girls it is making things difficult. It is harder to book new clients who will adhere to our safety measures and the risk to all escorts has increased. The issues with oversupply are starting to creep in, clients are become much more demanding; expecting more services for lower rates are just one of the annoying issues we are facing.

These same women who hate me and slander agencies will apply to Atlantic when their International Tour is failing.  We get around 10 ladies a month contacting us from their tour. When I say no, we don’t tour with privates – then I receive more hate!

But really?  You think I should give you access to the clients I have known for years?  Nobody ever offers me their clients but I should give a random girl mine…

The mind set in Australia is that Agencies steal from girls. As our tours to Asia are 80% regular clients, doesn’t that actually mean we are giving girls money? I am not sure how that is stealing?

Being attacked publicly saying I steal money from sexworkers is ridiculous. Atlantic is a Pty Ltd company that offers online promotion, support and many other services for a minimum of 12hrs a day 7 days a week.  The money paid to Atlantic doesn’t go to me personally. That money pays for things like Taxes & GST, Accounting Fees ($5k a year), advertising ($1000’s a month), it goes to wages, it was going to an SEO specialist ($1200 a month) but I am currently doing the SEO myself which I am really enjoying

I don’t dictate how an escort works. I offer ladies support and advice if they want it, but I also respect their boundaries. Girls can say yes or no to any meeting, choose their hours, if a lady wants to tour she tells me where & when.

Everyone that has ever worked with Atlantic and knows me personally know every day I spend time online (most days 8-10hrs) working on the website and ladies ads and making sure that girls have money and they have a good quality of life. I also talk to clients, many of whom I have chatted to for a lot of years and who I genuinely like.

I like schedules, I like spreadsheets, I like stats, I am a fan of organisation and being on time.  I am a helper, I like to see people happy and doing well, thriving in life.  Surely they aren’t things to hate me for?

I wish people would stop hating on me when I have done absolutely nothing wrong but work hard and achieve things I am proud of in the industry I used to love, and where I know I belong
