You picked up the phone. You arranged for an escort. Now, as you sit in your hotel room with your leg bouncing up and down, it hits you that you don’t really know that much about escorts. What do they like? What do they hate? Is there anything that you shouldn’t talk about?

Don’t worry. We can teach you a few things before your escort arrives. Here are some of the most common myths and misconceptions about them.

They have tragic backstories.

Do you remember what we said about Hollywood movies? Don’t assume that they reflect reality, and don’t assume that your escort has a sob story. Escorts are fun, happy people who are in the business of making others happy as well. As long as you’re treating her right, she should enjoy the time that you spend together just as much as you do.

They’re up for anything.

As with any partner, there are things that escorts won’t want to do. This is especially true if you’re playing with things like BDSM. Since trust is crucial to a rewarding, fulfilling experience with an escort, you’ll want to discuss these issues in advance to make sure that you don’t run afoul of their limits. An honest talk in the afternoon could save you a lot of awkwardness in the evening.

They don’t really care about you.

This is probably the biggest lie about professional escorts. They might be providing a service, but they can still enjoy that service. They can still find meaning in it. In fact, the best escorts are ones who can make a genuine emotional connection with you as you spend time together. They’ll care. They’ll care a lot.

Everything unfolds like a movie.

Forget everything that movies have taught you about escorts. You don’t watch Transformers and expect your car to turn into a mecha, right? You don’t watch The Godfather and think that all mobsters talk like Marlon Brando. It makes no sense to watch Working Girls and assume that it reflects the real world.

If you really want to learn more about escorts, you should do the learning yourself. It might be a bit nerve-wracking in the beginning, but it’ll be worth it in the end.
