The most important thing for an high-end escort? Maintain a high level of health and prevention: here’s how to do it!
Being an escort is no easy task. Along with having to be at your best, most charming and desirable personality at all times, there is so much maintenance that goes hand in hand with the profession. Needless to say, your lifestyle is what some people would call ‘risky’, which means you need to take extra care about your health and wellbeing. There are a couple different risks that you need to account for in being an escort, but the biggest remains the risk of sexually-transmitted diseases or STDs.
Most people think that if you’re regularly having sex with strangers, you’re bound to catch something sooner or later. Luckily, this is not the case as prevention and staying informed on best health practices go a long way.
Signs and Symptoms of Sexually Transmitted Disease
There are common warning signs of a sexually transmitted disease. If you experience any of these, you should stop sexual contact to prevent spreading a possible infection, and schedule an appointment with your GP as soon as possible:
- A discharge from the vagina;
- Pain or a burning sensation when urinating;
- Feeling you need to urinate more often than normal;
- Rashes, lumps, itching, blisters or sores in the genital area;
- Flu-like symptoms that are persistent in combination with swollen lymph nodes.
Be aware that some infections do not show clear warning signs and symptoms, especially soon after contact, while others may produce symptoms that later disappear. Do not ignore symptoms, even if they go away—this does not mean you are cured. If left unchecked, serious health problems may result, including infertility and other complications. Consult your GP who will refer you to a gynaecologist.
Safe Sex and Escorting
Engaging in sexual activity with clients is risky behaviour, and safe sexual practices are essential. Anyone can catch a sexually transmitted disease if they have unprotected sex with someone who is infected.
Safe sexual practices that will protect you and your clients include:
- Always using a condom for vaginal and anal sex;
- Never going from anal to vaginal sex without changing condoms first;
- Using a stronger condom for anal sex, and plenty of water-based lubricants (Don’t use oil-based lubricants with latex condoms as it can make the condom porous and prone to breaking);
- Engaging in oral sex with regular clients that have been tested.
These are just some of the rules you can apply during your appointments to stay safe. Of course, with time you can choose to make an exception with a client if you trust him and he’s proved to be healthy and trustworthy. But it’s important to always put your health, wellbeing and comfort first and never agree to unsafe practices even if the client is being insistent that they’re healthy and reliable. No one can (or should) force you to do anything that’s outside your comfort zone and your health is your responsibility.
Get regular medical check-ups and be sure to disclose all relevant information to your GP, so they can advise on best courses of treatment, contraceptive methods and means to stay healthy and safe.
