Beijing Escort Agency: What is a call girl?

A call girl or escort is a sex worker who (unlike a street walker) is not visible to the general public. Nor does she usually belong to an institution like a brothel (although she may be employed by an escort agency). The client must make an appointment, usually by calling a telephone number — hence the term "call girl". Often, call girls advertise their services in small ads in magazines and through the Internet, although an intermediary advertiser such as an escort agency may be involved in promoting more upmarket escorts. The less upmarket side of escorts may be handled by a pimp.Call girls may work either incall, where the client comes to them, or outcall, where they go to the client.

Escort services have made it a common practice to screen call girls to eliminate women with obvious drug problems (such as needle marks from injecting drugs) or those who have arrests for street prostitution or other types of crimes (using criminal background checks). They also attempt to employ women with pleasant personalities and those who are more skilled, attractive, educated, well-groomed and youthful.

Non-sex work

While sexual contact usually plays a prominent role in a call girl's work, not all clients hire call girls exclusively for sex, or in some case for any sex at all. Some simply do so either for social reasons (e.g. attending a party) or for companionship (e.g. someone who feels lonely may hire a girl to provide companionship missing in his or her life). Other call girls may specialize in domination or other fetishes which do not require intimate sexual activity.


Elderly and/or widowed men sometimes hire call girls for companionship, simply to enjoy the company of an attractive or intelligent woman. Escort agencies try to determine if this is what a client wants and if it is, the agency will try to send their most educated and polite women to the man or woman. It is not unusual for these "chat" call girls to receive big tips or even bequests from clients.In the movie Klute, Bree Daniels performs this service for an elderly garment manufacturer.

Social settings

Instead of sex, the client may simply desire to impress his or her peers by having an attractive woman as his or her date, or even pretend girlfriend or wife. The client may, for example, be attending a high school or college class reunion or an office social event. Clients seeking this service will tell the escort service what their intention is. They may specify what kind of woman they seek to play this role. The client may meet with the woman beforehand to evaluate her level of intelligence, education, manners, speech, and ability to execute the pretense, as well as to judge her appearance. They would go over his or her past, her (pretend) past and their feigned relationship, in order to successfully carry out the pretense.

TV appearances

Secret Diary of a Call Girl is broadcast in the UK on ITV1 after 11pm and on Showtime in the US. It is about a well educated, upper-market call girl who is part of an agency. The program contains sexual scenes, noises and nudity.

Call girls, celebrities and the very wealthy

Celebrities and very wealthy men sometimes hire call girls for sex to avoid the problem of unreasonable infatuation, where their partner is unreasonably attracted to them (and won't let go of the relationship or accept refusal) because of their status. It also avoids the problem of "kiss and tell" stories, where the girl would sell the story to the press. Both parties understand their respective positions and do not go beyond them. Some of these people are even open about what their date is to those they're partying with, though call girls request they not be. These "dates" can include flying by private jet to Las Vegas, staying in a luxury hotel suite, dining at the finest restaurants, dancing at the hottest nightclubs, and gambling at the casinos. Usually, the man or woman will first hire the woman for a short date to determine if he or she wants to do longer ones (such as the one just mentioned) with her. Here again, the woman's appearance, intelligence, manners, sociability and education come into consideration. For some wealthy clients these dates evolve into long standing arrangements that more closely resemble that of a kept woman or a mistress.

Some opt for this profession because it is a way of making money while enjoying the pleasure of sex with different partners. Recently men have also jumped into these businesses and provide sexual services to women. Some higher class women who live far away from their husbands or who like to have sex but don't have partners hire men for sex.

City tours

In Europe, the system of City Tours is becoming more and more popular in cities such as Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, or Zurich. Eastern European call girls, from countries such as Russia, Hungary, Romania, or Ukraine, are brought by agencies for short stays not exceeding two weeks. The agencies book a room in a business hotel for them, where they receive customers all day long.[citation needed] This system takes its toll on the call girls, who are relentlessly exploited during their short stay in Western Europe. Whether or not these escorts are citizens of the European Union may also be a factor in recruitment. For the clientele, or punters, this provides a revolving door policy with the benefit of newly employed escorts providing a continual service.

Most call girl agencies and independent call girls are now online, and the Internet has become the main venue for a customer to find his or her match. Generally, a picture of the girl is provided, and sometimes, the type of sexual services she is willing to offer. Some agencies also propose a higher fee for people of special interest, such as twins, former porn stars, B-List models, prodommes or even submissives.

The Internet includes many directories or listings of call girls or escorts. These may cover a specific area or a wider region (even worldwide). Usually the call girl or the agency is responsible for submitting their information to the appropriate directory.

Websites are also used by clients/hobbyists to provide a review of the call girls they have met and rate them, on their aesthetics, behavior or sexual performances. For the readers of evaluation web sites the rating of the call girls is often a determining factor in their selection. Many are thought to be not trafficked.

Call girl internet slang

Because offering sexual services in exchange for money is illegal in many areas, certain code words in the subculture of sex work have emerged to communicate in lieu of description of explicit acts. For instance, the words incall and outcall describe the location of the encounter. Incall means that the session takes place at the call girl's location (her apartment or hotel room in the case of a city tour). Outcall means that the session is at a place selected by the customer, personal home, or hotel room.

Oral activity codes

Sex workers vary greatly in their willingness to kiss or engage in oral sex. Terms such as DFK (Deep French Kissing - i.e. open mouth kissing with tongues) and LFK (Light French Kissing - open mouth but without tongue) are commonly used to describe kissing activities. Providing oral sex can be described as BBBJ (Bare Back Blow Job - no condom) or OWO (Oral Without Condom) and CIM (Cum In Mouth), while DATY (Dining At The Y) or RO (Reverse Oral) indicates a provider is willing to allow a client to perform oral sex on her. Some sex workers will charge extra for receiving oral, but this is normally a massage parlour or brothel practice, as Independant or Agency workers will provide services inclusive of the hourly rate.

GFE, the "Girlfriend Experience"

Another familiar word in call girl slang is GFE, an acronym for "girlfriend experience". It usually implies that an escort will have a warm personality, be willing to kiss the client, hold hands and be generally affectionate. This also includes an assumption that the girl will perform oral sex without a condom barrier. Another codical term is "Greek." A call girl who is "Greek welcome" is willing to have anal sex with the client. This term is more commonly used in the USA. In the UK, the common term for those who are willing to have anal sex is A-Levels or A-Class, signifying the A in anal. For example, if the girl does anal she may state on her online profile "educated to A-Level". "A-Level" in USA typically means the girl is a "Five Star" escort, implying that she is high-class and receives high-rating review of her services.

PSE, the "Porn Star Experience"

Another related term is PSE (Porn Star Experience). This suggests that the escort has a very aggressive sexual demeanor, or is very accommodating of unusual requests and complex requests. This may include a willingness to perform all acts, with the exception of vaginal and anal sex, without a condom barrier.
