I am a retired madam who used to post often on a well-known review board; I knew quite a few escorts fairly well, and some even worked with me while visiting my city. But when persecution of sex workers increased, my nerves were shot and I retired; that was five years ago. I thought I had enough to retire on, but a few months ago I lost a lot of money in bad investments, and now I find myself needing a source of income again. Although I am no longer interested in taking on the all-consuming responsibility of an agency, I would be very interested in becoming a booker/screener for another agency or for a number of independents. I have tons of experience, intuition, and good judgement, plus actual empathy for the women I worked with. Do you have any suggestions on where and how I could get established in this business?
I’ve met several ladies who work as bookers & screeners, and some of them do quite well. Personally, I wouldn’t approach an agency; instead, I would look for independents who would be willing to pay you a fee for every completed gig. After you get a few happy customers, I think more will come looking for you; it’s the first few that are going to be the hardest. Do you still have a presence on any escort advertising/review boards? If you do, you could contact the owners or moderators and ask if they’d mind if you advertised your services there. You could also call or email the ladies you know, and pitch it to them; you might even advertise on Twitter. It’s even possible you might get some business advertising on Backpage, and Aphrodite knows many of the ladies who advertise there could use an experienced assistant; however, as we all know that site is crawling with cops, and I’m afraid you might be setting yourself up to be targeted by predatory “detectives” looking for a big “sex trafficking” bust to add to their resumes. It may take you a little while to get this rolling, but once you do I think you’ll not only have a very decent income, but also help a lot of our younger sisters to stay safe.
