Female escorts are compensated for their time and time only. Sex is NEVER guaranteed
A female escort is a type of sex worker who provides sexual services and/or companionship in exchange for money. The solicitation of those escort services has shifted from street corners to easily-accessed online websites (Castle & Lee, 2008). With the advent of the Internet, solicitation of sexual companionship via escort advertisements has allowed escorts to advertise physical attributes and descriptions and develop greater control of their occupation and clientele (Koken, Bimbi, Parsons, & Halkitis, 2004). In these escort service websites, women often post pictures of themselves, describe the services they offer, describe their physical attributes, and indicate the amount they charge for services. An analysis of the information provided in escort advertisements may allow a unique means of exploring short-term mating preferences.
