I find my job very stressful. If I come to you, it is the complete opposite: I feel like I am the complete focus of your attention. I can talk to you, and you listen to my every word. And when we go to bed, you do everything you can to pleasure me.
Do you still enjoy sex with your wife? She lost interest in sex years ago. How does having sex differ between me and your wife? My wife would never dream of asking me what I like. I know she works hard too, and she hardly ever asks me for help with the shopping or cleaning. When did you first see a prostitute?
I started going to strip clubs with my colleagues from work years ago. I really liked it and found it very relaxing. Occasionally I have nightmares about my teenage sons discovering what I do, which would probably be worse than my wife finding out. No one in the house would ever speak to me again. Will you ever stop seeing me? I still really enjoy it. So I guess it is an addiction. Where do you tell your partner you are when you come to see me?
And how do you feel afterwards? You make me feel so good about myself, like I have really pleased you, too. I feel fine, very happy and relaxed after seeing you. Do you care about me? I worry about you a lot. When their relationship broke down three years later, she found herself struggling to bring up two children on her own. She admits that escorting has not only helped her financially, but has made her a stronger and more confident person.
She sees around 12 clients a week at their homes or in hotels, and relies on word of mouth to get custom. Sabia describes him as easy to talk to with a lovely deep voice and soft northern accent. Why do you come to see me? My wife and I have a very good marriage. The problem is, I need more sex than she gives me. So coming to you seems like a good compromise — a way of getting what I need without letting my wife down. I justify what I do by reminding myself that I work hard all day, so coming to see you is my reward for being a good husband and father the rest of the time.
How does having sex with me and your wife differ? Who you are and what you are makes the experience fascinating.
What gave you the idea to pay for sex? When I turned 40, my friends bought me a certificate for a massage at a sports centre. I loved it — it was very sensual. That led me to find people who gave more of an intimate service, so to speak.
How do you feel about it now? I feel liberated about it. Where do you tell your partner you are when you come to me? Do you trust me? I really care about you and I hope that comes over when we meet. She caters for 15 clients a week and advertises her services on the Internet and in magazines. She is currently saving up to open her own clinic. Maria admits that David often takes her out for meals and occasionally buys her flowers or small gifts.
Yes, well, not only that. We went to the cinema together last week. It is about you as a person as well.
It is not as easy for me to separate the emotional side from the physical as I thought it would be. Would you say you have feelings for me? Yes, I like you a lot. About four years ago, I met someone I really cared about and ended up getting hurt. After that, I made up my mind that I would never let that happen again. Was sex with your girlfriend enjoyable?
You mean my ex, Lisa? I never felt as close to her as I do to you. I would like to think that I would stop coming to see you if I did find myself in a serious relationship with a woman, or was thinking of getting married. How is having sex with me different from when you used to have sex with Lisa? When did you first visit a prostitute?
I just wanted to see what prostitutes were like and so I went after a stag night one weekend. The girl I got was nice, like you, so I just kept coming after that. And how do you feel about it now? How do you feel when you leave me? I feel good about myself, and generally much more relaxed. I enjoy coming here a lot.
I wish I could come and spend the whole day with you or, ideally, take you away for a whole weekend. But I could never do that because I could never afford your prices. A few hundred quid for a few hours is just about as much as I can pay. I think I do.
