On Euphemisms and Professional Companionship

“For time and companionship only”

“Hourglass Figure” by Scarlett Royal

For some, this is merely a euphemism to avert accusations of prostitution and charging for sex acts. For others, such as myself and most of the women I know in the business, it is what we offer. Time and companionship are at a premium. This isn’t understood by many, especially those on the outside looking in.

Western society, especially in America, operates at a breakneck pace. Always something to do, somewhere to be… Allowing oneself to merely pass the time is a luxury afforded by a precious few. Due to this new reality, sharing your leisure time with someone is a type of intimacy. You certainly don’t want to spend it with someone who won’t make it worth while and has you wishing that the hands on the clock would move a little (or a lot) faster.

This is something to keep in mind in this corner of the demimonde and providers and clients both need to respect this. Not every provider is fit to be a Companion- the confidant, the friend, the conversationalist, the intimate…. and that is alright. Nor is every client of the temperament to be a Companion’s patron…. and that is alright as well. We all have our strengths, our niches, our preferences and everything works a lot better when we acknowledge this and operate within our appropriate frameworks. There are differences that need to be respected, even with a common denominator.

And as an unrelated side note: Don’t forget to set your clocks back this weekend!

  1. Brava, Claudia!
    I’ve been trying to put words to this for a while. While I don’t cater to any particular tax bracket, I do cater to this very mind set. I’ve learned that this thought process is not limited to those who can afford a certain lifestyle.
    I have met men in the upper echelons of society that should not be allowed to contact a companion in any form. I’m talking about his number should be automatically programmed in your phones as Do Not Answer, and all emails go straight to spam. Conversely, I’ve enjoyed the most intelligent conversations and luxury excursions with a farmer. It doesn’t happen very often, but when we do spend time together, it’s the best. He could see me at shorter increments of time more frequently, but he chooses not to.
    I’ve learned very early on that some women aren’t meant to be companions, and everyone that advertises as one isn’t one. It takes an ability to see something in a person in such a short amount of time to enjoy their company, and treat them accordingly.

    As always, an exceptional post!


  2. I absolutely agree, though I do cater to a particular tax bracket. Still finding my niche…
