How to make money as a prostitute and why you better choose another profession

Types of Prostitutes

Independent Call Girl/Escort

Independent escorts work for themselves in hotels and private buildings like houses, charge high prices, and stay away from the public eye. They likely advertise their services online, and they get to keep their profits since they're self-employed.

Escort Agency Employee

Like independent call girls, employees of escort agencies work in private locations or hotels and charge relatively high prices. These employees face "moderate exploitation" since they have to give a cut of their earnings to their agencies.

Brothel Employee

Brothels are dedicated locations where people pay for sex and can include saunas and massage parlors. The prices they charge are "moderate," and brothel workers endure "moderate exploitation" since they have to give part of their earnings to the brothel owners.

Window Worker

This type of prostitution is prevalent in Amsterdam, enticing passersby to enter houses of prostitution by prominently displaying the women in windows. Which pays women a low-to-moderate wage.

Almost all of Amsterdam's window rooms are single occupancy, separating workers from each other. Some rooms are connected to a bathroom and kitchen shared by several workers, but the women spend most of their time by themselves in front of the windows. The situation contrasts sharply with brothels, where workers can enjoy a party atmosphere and regular social contact with other providers, staff, and customers.

Bar or Casino Worker

These sex workers make initial contact with men at a bar or casino and then have sex at a separate location. In bars in Thailand, the Philippines, and the Dominican Republic, guys pay "bar fees" to leave a club with a worker and spend several days with her. The guys (often foreigners) pay the women's expenses during that time, in an arrangement that often confers status on the prostitute. The women earn low-to-moderate salaries.


Streetwalkers earn relatively little money and are vulnerable to exploitation. Not surprisingly, they report less job satisfaction and get paid less than "indoor prostitutes" (bar workers, brothel workers, or call girls).

Street walking is also notoriously dangerous. One study found prostitutes in Colorado Springs were 18 times more likely to be murdered than other women of a similar age.

Payments and salaries

Prostitutes' salaries and payments fluctuate according to the economic conditions of their respective countries. Prostitutes who usually have foreign clients, such as business travelers, depend on good foreign economic conditions. Payment may vary according to regulations made by brothel keepers, madams, and procurers, who usually take a slice out of a prostitute's income. Prices may further depend on demand; popular, high-end prostitutes can earn significant amounts of money (upwards of $5,000 per client). Virgins also receive higher payments with some payments going up to $780,000.

High End Prostitute is Answering

A high end prostitute, Karma, working at a legal brothel (in Australia) volunteered to answer any questions people might have about her job. Here are the very best things from her answers.

It seems pretty easy to get hired as a prostitute
Asked how the hiring process worked, Karma replied:
- I’ve been considering it for the last year or so and made the decision last month. I called up the brothel and asked about working and the invited me in for an interview. I did an interview with the manager and filled out an application for and started that week. It was quite a speedy process.

But you don’t have to have a “sex audition”
- No, they assumed I know how to have sex.

You can enjoy the sex
- It’s quite sexually fulfilling, and it is fun. I still see my casual sex partners regularly, but it’s less of a necessity.
The aspects of my job I enjoy the most are meeting interesting people, some of the guys are great for conversation and have a lot of great stories. Also I’ve had great sex on the job, which is always fun. There was also a booking where I played pool for four hours naked in high heels. That was especially fun.

Just because you’re willing to pay a prostitute, doesn’t mean she has to have sex with you
- Of course nobody is forced to have sex with anybody, but I haven’t had instances where I’ve had to decline a booking. We are able to walk out of a booking if a client repeatedly doesn’t follow rules or things like that.

How to fake enthusiasm for a guy if the spark isn’t there
- When I’m not immediately attracted to a guy I try to find some common ground or something about him I like. I believe that a connection is important, especially if they’re paying so much money for your time. If I’m just completely not into it, which doesn’t happen, I fake enthusiasm and use a lot of lube.

Prostitutes make a lot of $$$
- I make $200/hr not including extras, the client pays $400/hr. I’ve been working once a week, the shifts are 10 hours long but it depends how many bookings you get. I make about $1500 per shift.

Hygiene protocol between partners
- Wet wipes, shower, Listerine.

Tips from experienced hooker

1. As you’ll probably be working for a third of your life, it seems a real waste of your life to spend it hating what you do.
2. The sex business is a career. Very few who start give up at 25, or “just do it for a couple of years”.
3. Beginners normally work for someone else, i.e. in saunas, brothels, drinking clubs, or for a pimp.
4. Working for yourself i.e. in a flat or running your own escort agency costs money and means responsibility.
5. Rich and successful people will rarely take you on for long.
6. As you get older, you discover other work options, i.e. mistress, madam or maid, teacher or enabler.
7. The fact that you can earn more money in one day that your partner can earn in one week, can seriously affect your relationship.
8. If you respect your client, your client will respect you.
9. If you think or treat your client as an animal, they may well behave as one.
10. There’s no point in doing 50 men a week, it will make you want to get out after a couple of months and spend all your money on rubbish to cheer yourself up.
11. Remember: ten men a week is 520 a year. This is a reasonable average.
12. Remember, being a slut is part of the fantasy. Start as yourself, play whatever part is wanted, then return to yourself. This will make your performance much more fun.
13. There are good and bad escort agencies. Unfortunately, it’s trial and error from what you choose.
14. Make sure you have a friend who knows what you do and will support you.
15. Be prepared to encounter men who have a thousand excuses for why they don't want to use condoms. Yes, in 2015. Remind them that if you decide to make an exception for them, you've probably made exceptions before, and you'd be putting them at risk. Remind them of their wives at home. Be firm and be willing to walk out the door.
16. Careful screening is the most important thing you can do to protect yourself from arrest and violence. The internet has made screening incredibly straightforward, and you should take advantage of the many blacklists, whitelists, and background checks that are available. Some whitelists don't require clients' real names for membership and use loose screening methods; you're better off doing most of the legwork on your own. Get to know other sex workers in your area. Having a support network feels good; it also helps you access local groups that keep members informed about problem clients and arrest patterns. Many sex workers will only see clients who have two or more verifiable references from other providers. Whatever method you choose, be consistent about using it, and contribute to the community by reporting bad clients and providing references promptly when asked. Use these tools, and trust your gut; intuition is the cornerstone of screening.

Why you better choose another profession

There's a chasm between "I've thought about prostitution" and "I think I'd like to start working as a prostitute," namely the difference between wanting to make $300 an hour and wanting to suck strange dick for a living.

Prostitution is one of the most dangerous professions in the World

A whole bunch of magazines like to release lists of the "most dangerous jobs" and number one is always fisherman, or logger or oil man. Well… prostitution, by the numbers, is riskier than all of those.

According to the most recent statistics, the death rate for prostitutes in the U.S. is 204 out of every 100,000. For fishermen, it's 129 out of every 100,000.

Of course, neither of those are as anecdotally deadly as being a retired WWE wrestler or U.S. president (which has a rate of 18,181 deaths for every 100,000)… and we don't know the death rate for crack whores or Norm MacDonald's favorite, assistant crack whores… but, end of the day, being a prostitute is really, really, really dangerous.

Also, the average prostitute gets physically (but non-lethally) attacked approximately once a month.

The money myth

Why do you want to be a sex worker? If your answer is "I want fast money," and it often is, turn back now. There's nothing inherently unhealthy about sex work, but there's something inherently delusional about get-rich-quick schemes, and if that's what you think you're getting into, it's not a healthy career move. You might make a pile of money tonight, but that doesn't mean you'll make a cent next week, and if you let the Benjamins get to your head you'll be broke more often than you think. Working in a dungeon or massage parlor means spending six hours a day streaming TV shows before you get an hour or two of actual work; whether you're making $75 or $250 a session, it breaks down to a whole lot of nothing per hour.

Wages aside, you probably won't like your job very much. You'll probably make unhealthy choices, like not using protection, not screening, meeting clients who gave you a bad vibe on the phone, or seeing more clients than you can handle.

If you want to be a sex worker because you enjoy work that's physically and intellectually engaging, you like meeting new people and sometimes touching them, you're an exhibitionist or you like to talk dirty or you just don't take sex very seriously, you might be getting somewhere.

What is sustainable in short bursts is not always sustainable throughout a 12-hour work day

One of the reasons having sex is fun is because it’s a novelty, a pleasant diversion from the day-to-day. Yes, it’s at times demanding and taxing. But it’s worth it because it’s a bit of a treat.
Turn the sex into the day-to-day, and you lose a lot of the pros, and gain a lot of cons.

When you’re not getting paid, you can quit any time

When you’re having sex for free, you’re allowed to stop.
If you get a little past your comfort level, or your partner is asking for too much, or you’re not having fun anymore, or you’re too tired, or you’ve got a wicked headache, or you’re just not in the damn mood, you can stop having sex.
When you’re getting paid, nobody’s much interested in whether or not you’re in the mood.

You are your own boss

Sex workers need to know their boundaries and be willing to evaluate them, to know when to stand by them or change them when they're challenged. Whether you're working as a stripper or an escort or a webcam performer, you'll likely have an encounter that pushes at those boundaries. Know the difference between what you will do and what you prefer to do, what you won't do and what you prefer not to do. Many girls can give happy ending massages and don't let their clients touch them; Most worker prefer clients who want to make out and get them off. As you consider your preferences, you might realize that working as a prostitute isn't for you, and another kind of sex work is just right.

Working independently isn't for everyone. You often spend more hours screening clients, putting up ads, and answering calls than you do in session, and if you find that kind of work draining, you might prefer to work for an agency. Like any other profession, there are unscrupulous managers and jerks who will expect you to always be on call but will rarely give you work. There are others who will screen thoroughly, be considerate of your schedule, and introduce you to terrific clients.
