What Does GFE or a Girlfriend Experience mean when booking an escort?

I feel like this a controversial topic and one that many clients and providers will differ on based on their expectations and experience. 

Generally a GFE or girlfriend experience with an escort means something you would expect in terms of a fantasy encounter but with a significant other. It would be familiar, consensual, passionate/sensual/romantic, sexy and feel like a natural encounter. 

Escort service has not always been that way. In fact the GFE experience was only popularized a few years ago in the New York sex scene because some men were looking for a different kind of session. Some were not turned on by a standard session that was cold or impersonal and with many providers did not include kissing or intimacy of any kind. After it became popularized a lot of escorts worldwide adopted and even preferred to offer that type of experience for clients, and some offer an option for gfe or pse (porn star experience) for wider variety. 

For some clients the intimacy and natural comfort of being with a lady is something that they seek out, rather than an anonymous "one night stand" encounter that leaves them feeling a little too disconnected after it's over. 

My specialty is offering a natural and unrushed girlfriend type of experience for clients - even if we've just only met. To make them feel appreciated and cared for and enjoy a natural intimate connection with them. I am greeting clients warmly, happy to see them, want to find common ground to connect on, and make them feel special while enjoying an intimate and private experience. I take my time with them, I'm not watching the clock or abruptly ending anything to rush them out either. When I am with a client my focus is on them, and them alone to…

What Is a Reference? Why Do Some Escorts Request One? and How To Provide a Proper Reference

As an independent escort the majority of time I spend working on my business is actually reading and responding to appointment inquiries. Lately I am finding that no matter how clear I try to be on my ads or on my contact form, that I'm still receiving too many inquiries that totally disregard the information I have outlined that is necessary for me to receive in order to feel comfortable booking an appointment. 

Today I want to talk about references and what they are and how they work in regards to sex work.

Why Do Some Escorts Request a Reference to Make a Booking?

In this industry, I would say that there are a few different types of ways some escorts go about for their bookings and wanted to go over them. 

1. Some escorts (whether represented by an agency or independent) will NOT insist on a reference before making a booking but will still have their own personal way of screening. 

2. Some escorts will ask for a reference IN LIEU of insisting on the potential client providing his full name and personal details to consider making a booking.

3. Some escorts will insist on BOTH a reference (sometimes even multiple) AND full name, work info and other personal details to consider making a booking. 

What Do I Require From Potential Clients?

I like to offer 2 options to potential clients, they can either provide a reference from another REPUTABLE and known sex worker that they have seen recently (without disclosing and verifying their full real name), OR they can provide me with their full name and personal details and I will verify they are who they say they are. 

Why Do I Need a Reference or Personal Details From Potential Clients?

I want to be as safe as

Misunderstandings and Myths About Rates and That Escorts Only Want "Wealthy" Clients

There's been a lot of talk on review boards and twitter about ladies who increase their rates above the Toronto agency average rate (which varies between $220-$280 an hour for incall generally).

Some "hobbyists" (as they dub themselves) think they know exactly why a lady changes her rates, or how much she makes, or how many clients she sees in a given day or a week. 

But the truth is a lot of these remarks are just assumptions. They either did some arbitrary math in their head, or they spoke to one or two ladies and asked them personal questions about their schedules and rates and apply this to every other lady in the industry. (This is also assuming said lady told the truth, or the client is reciting it back 100% correctly which there's no proof for and shouldn't be relied upon either.)

No lady's business is exactly the same as another. Contrary to popular belief we are not machines able to crank out 6, 8, 10 clients a day every single day to "maximize" profits. 

One of the assumptions for ladies that increase or charge a rate for $300+/h is that they have the "golden pussy syndrome" and "think" they are better or worth more than some ladies who charge less. 

Maybe...

But there's many more reasons than that one to charge a higher rate than sheer arrogance about oneself. 

I'm not going to speak for other ladies and say this is exactly why they charge what they charge, as I don't know. For myself I consider and believe the following factors play a huge role:

1. Cost of incall location

2. Cost of advertising

3. Cost of marketing (i.e. professional photos, professional website, attire, etc.)

4. Clientele desired (i.e. at higher rates a client will be accustomed

The Booking Process: How First Impressions Matter

I know we live in a busy world, and Toronto especially is full of busy people. But one thing I really can't stand about living here, is how flippant or flakey some people seem to be. This is definitely not only observed in this industry, but any in which you would need an appointment or reservation. 

If a gentlemen is contacting me for an appointment for the first time, first impressions really do matter. We have no idea who we are communicating with. Depending on the day we might have a few inquiries or just one, but being clear and polite really makes a difference. 

Most of the time when potential clients contact me they omit at least a few important pieces of information so I cannot go further with the booking process. 

An example of a vague email that doesn't make a very good impression is:

"Hey 

looking for an appointment for noon.

Rick"

A better email would be:

"Hey Charlotte. My name is Rick and I'm a 43 years old, I'm looking for a 1 hour appointment for noon on Friday. My cell number is (_____________) and I recently saw Summer a month ago, her contact info is (_____________). Looking forward to hearing from you. 

Rick"

An even better email would be:

"Hello Charlotte. I found your ad on Eros and it really intrigued me. I've been looking for a gfe companion and read your reviews and I think you are someone I'd love to meet. My name is Rick and I'm a 43 year old lawyer, my P411 ID is ________ and I'm looking for a 1 hour appointment for noon Friday. My cell number is (_____________) and I recently saw Summer a month ago, her contact info is (_____________). I booked her via email and she
