“For time and companionship only”
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!
