While working as an escort has its perks, there are some definite challenges too. Working as an escort involves a drastic lifestyle change. For some people some of the challenges associated with the adult industry are quite too much to put up with whereas some people cope up well with them. If you are making the decision whether to join the adult industry as an escort you should be aware of the following challenges:

  1. Stalkers

Working as an escort exposes you to a lot of strangers and you are likely going to end up with some fans. Having fans is a good thing and some of them may end being good customers or normal friends. However, not all fans are respectful of escorts and understand the rules of engagement or the boundaries between escort work as a form of entertainment and your personal life as a civilian. Some fans however, are extremely egoistic and are biased of the value of an escort to be just a fantasy for them to enjoy or play with. It is quite possible for you to fall victim to such narcissists. While most may not be violent they can follow you around or initiate uninvited communication and violate your privacy.

  1. Family Issues

While working as an escort is no less a profession than working as a banker, most family members find fault with adult entertainment work. You are less likely to win favours with the moral judgment of your family members. In fact, most escorts keep their work-life private from friends and family members to avoid judgment and criticism. If you have a boyfriend or a husband they are also unlikely to appreciate your choice to work as an escort. In reality, if your friends and family members ever realize your “private work life” they might dissociate from you out of judgment.

  1. Drugs and Alcohol

While every career has its stress factors, working as an escort can easily take a toll on your mental health from juggling from one client to the next.  In addition, you are going to work in an environment where alcohol is commonly used and invites to take a glass of beer by customers will be quite frequent. It is quite natural to enjoy a drink, but if it becomes frequent, you might develop alcoholism. It is also likely to fall into substance abuse since most customers and the adult industry as a whole tolerates the use of drugs during pleasure time.

  1. Exhaustion

While every line of work has is bound to leave you physically exhausted, you are going to find yourself overly exhausted during your first time as an exhaust. Mainly, you are going to work late at night and endure unpredictable schedules as clients’ book in at their own convenience.
