What The Singaporean Escort Scene Is Really Like, By A Former Escort

  • "My Girlfriend Is A Social Escort"
    1 / 8 "My Girlfriend Is A Social Escort"

    By Kelvin Tan, Editor for Men’s Health Singapore

    We read about it on occasion- girls who work as social escorts in Singapore. It’s usually plonked away in our minds with the rest of the seedy stuff. But this being the Internet, someone’s always bound to tell their side of the story. We found this Reddit thread of a guy who’s girlfriend is a social escort and started a AMA (Ask Me Anything). The responses were quite.. wow.

    User croissanwich starts out with this revelation, as well as how much she charges, saying: “My girlfriend is half Japanese and looks Japanese, and that’s considered a bonus here (we’re in Singapore). 1500-1800 SGD an hour, which is about $1200-1400 in USD.”

    2 / 8 "From Schoolgirls To Professionals"

    User RzrRainMnky then chimes in: ” Not sure if the guy is for real or trolling, but then again “high class” is used very loosely in the Singapore escort scene, along with that guy’s definition of boyfriend. At one end you have all those silly school girls thinking they’re just going to do this once or twice for money to get the latest iPhone/Samsung Galaxy (but end up being reliant on escorting for their main income), with the “professional bloggers”, wannabe singers/actresses and some professional working women (who were introduced to it in their school days) in the middle to the girls who failed their “N” levels and earn low 5-figs every month by selling flowers at your local KTV joint.”

    “All this degeneracy is fueled by the materialistic desires of these silly women who can’t see past the next designer handbag/accessory/handphone and the fugly desperate virgin men who are very good in their professional lives but absolutely fail when it comes to the ladies.

    Moral of the story? Sex should be consensual and free guys, you lose a little bit of yourself everytime you have to whip out the credit card for sexy time or let yourself be pawed by some fat loser who has BO that would stun a moose just for your next retail therapy session.”

    3 / 8 "But Money Matters, No?"

    User Fuzzybunn then replies: “On the other hand, this kinda drives spending and the economy, doesn’t it? Contributes to the GDP through alcohol consumption, luxury goods and cosmetic products.

    Free and consensual sex does nothing for the economy. And if it’s good for the economy… it’s good for Singapore.”

    4 / 8 "But Then Again.."

    User RzrRainMnky then retorts: ” Well the escort industry may contribute to the economy but only the participants can determine whether the negative externalities incurred by them are worth it.

    Some examples of these externalities would be:

    • STDs – escorts aren’t regulated as much compared to the fishtanks and streetwalkers in Geylang
    • Long-term damage to their bodies from excessive alcohol consumption and smoking and the subsequent added load on our healthcare system
    • All the emotional overhead from dealing with girls that ask for short-term loans which they take ages to pay back or sometimes not at all
    • Girls getting stuck in the lifestyle and never bothering to upgrade their skills/education and ending up unable to form long-term relationships with men, which would be one less heterosexual relationship resulting in 1 less contribution to our dismal birth rate

    Well meeting the ladies and trying to hook them also requires money, just not in such an explicit way. Your weekly contribution to places like Zouk, Clarke Quay, Balaclava and Tanjong beach club is your hidden cost of having free and consensual relations, which also drives the economy.”

  • "An Ex-Escort Shares Her View"

    One user then replied: “I think you’re overgeneralising the entire industry. I worked a similar job for a while – I was paid roughly 1.8k/hour. No alcohol unless offered, and even then only one glass of wine/champagne and nothing stronger. Protection comes first and I would walk out if the man insisted on doing without.

    I knew several other girls who worked as escorts. My experience was the opposite of what you described – we were regulated more than Geylang streetwalkers, because we charged more and our clients expected more. You can’t just turn up with an STD, smoking and drinking while barely maintaining a conversation. You’d probably be out of a job after a couple clients if you did.

    Were some escorts financially irresponsible? Sure, but that comes with the territory of making ~4k a night. There are always a few idiots in every industry.”

    One user then followed up asking?: “What kind of topics do you find yourself particularly good at? How did you get started? Sorry if my questions are somewhat intrusive.”

    She replied: ” I’m pretty okay with investment talk. When to sell, when to buy, which banks have the better options. It varies from industry to industry. I usually smile and shut up for clients in oil/gas, but have more to say for lawyers and media.

    I had to read a lot though. Wall Street Journal and the likes. I liked it, so I didn’t mind, but some of the girls found it awful.

    I was introduced by a friend.

    Ah, see, the industry also varies based on the type of clients. If you deal with high-fliers, you’re going to have to hold yourself to higher standards. I suspect the freelancers you knew had mostly “regular” clients, so to speak – those who hire escorts for the sex. Mine hired me because they needed a date for whatever event. Most times we didn’t even have sex.

    IIRC, I got checked around every six months. I used both condoms and birth control pills.”

  • "So what's the demand for escorts in Singapore like?"
    7 / 8 "So what's the demand for escorts in Singapore like?"

    User RzerRainMnky then added: “Well I knew freelancers who would get asked out for short dates of 3 hours or less just because their customer needed some female companionship, no sex needed and they’d get paid high 3-figs for that date, so there’s that as well.

    The part of the industry you were in sounds more like “expensive date for hire” and less “female companionship + extras on the side”. If I were entertaining clients I wouldn’t be interested in hiring expensive and educated girls like you just because my clients are more interested in the girls at the other end of the spectrum i.e. great ability to drink and no qualms about playing grab-ass and a happy ending to round off the night out on town.

    Would you consider your experience uncommon/rare amongst the escort fraternity or is there a huge demand for ladies like you?”

    She replied: “Quite a big demand, especially if there are big global conferences happening in Singapore. Lots of important people = lots of money for me.

    Also depends on what they need. When I’m hired, it’s usually because they want to go to an unofficial lunch meeting or something. They’re not hiring me for someone else, they’re hiring me so they look good in front of whoever they need to impress. A ditzy girl who gets drunk two minutes in won’t do well in that kind of setting.

    There were a few men who’d call me up just to talk. That was fun haha. Never charged for those, since I learnt a lot.

    That’s not to say there aren’t men who hire me just for female companionship. That happens too, but it’s rarer since I charge so much. There’s only a couple that I remember where I went out solely to chill with the client, no VIPs to impress.”

    She then concludes: “It depresses me when I see people aiming for a safe, white collar job. There’s nothing wrong with financial security, but I wish people would realise the sky is the limit. If your dream job doesn’t exist, make it exist.

    Then again I’ve been wanting to be a lawyer since I was 6 anyway, so what do I know about unconventional dreams haha.”
