What It’s Like To Lead A Secret Life As A Social Escort In Singapore

It can be harder than you think

Melissa* has had common interests and hobbies and talked about regular things with some of the men she has met. In fact, she has even had crushes on some of them – including a doctor and a business owner in Singapore. However, Melissa has had to hold her own emotions in rein. Because, these men are Melissa’s social escort clients, and not random men she has bumped into a local bar in Singapore.

Over the last 24 months, Melissa has played the part of a loving and caring girlfriend. However, it has not been easy all the time. “It is easy to play the part of a girlfriend sometimes, because you have a crush on the client. However, it isn’t always easy to not act on the crushes because I need to remain professional. Over time, I have learnt to accept that as part of the job requirement.”

sg girlMelissa works under a Singapore escort agency, alongside other local social escort girls. However, she has never met the other colleagues, and neither does she want to. Privacy is a big part of this job and a big concern.

Melissa is 23 this year, and is an fresh graduate in a sales job in Singapore. “I felt like I want more savings and wanted to pursue something interesting. With this job, while it is vastly different and I recommend other girls to do their own research online on the Internet before becoming one, it has been a real eye opening experience and experiencing new, luxurious things that would normally not be available for me.”

Melissa had also considered being a sugar baby, but decided against it after realizing that it can be quite easy to develop real emotions for the sugar daddy. Unfortunately, in some cases, sugar daddies may be married, and she does not want to get emotionally attached to such a sugar daddy. However, with social escort clients, she usually meets each one at most once or twice, and so rarely has the chance for the emotions to truly develop deeply. She prefers the fleeting nature of the relationship so as not to get attached.

Melissa’s clients are mainly made of by business, finance or medical professionals with mid to top level positions. C suite clients are not out of the norm as well. There is a mix between both local Singaporean as well as foreigner clients.

It is however, not without downside. Her double life has translated to missing out on some friends’ and relatives’ birthdays, and many dinner get togethers. But she says the money makes it worth it.

Melissa still currently lives with her Singaporean parents, but they do not know about her double life as a social escort.

“People who know about it, tell me all the time, ‘I keep failing my exams or keep getting scolded by my boss. I think I should just be a social escort!’ as if it was so easy.” What they don’t see is the double life and having little to no social life.

In a nutshell, according to Melissa, it takes a high level of adaptability to do it all, and while still being a great escort companion.

Is There A Difference Between Social Escorts & Prostitutes – Yes!

Some people think that a Singaporean social escort and a prostitute are the same, but they are not. If they were the same, then you could register a brothel and operate it legally and exactly the same as an escort agency. However, there is a difference.

The layperson may think that they are the same, but they really are not, and they are not even vaguely close legally speaking. One sells sexual services, one sells romantic companionship and nothing sexual. One is illegal to be publicly soliciting customers for it in Singapore, the other is not.

There is more similarity between sugar babies and escorts, although there are still differences. Read my previous article on this topic to find out more.

It is similar to how you can matchmake people in Singapore, but you cannot arrange for forced or arranged marriages.

Working A Social Escort Job In Singapore – Are You Up To It?

A lot of women in Singapore consider taking up a social escort job on the sideline, however, not all of them are suited to be an escort in Singapore. If you are a woman also considering a social escort job, then read on to find out if you suit it at all, and whether you can apply!

Just like any other job in Singapore or otherwise, there will always be upsides and downsides. The obvious upside when it comes to escort jobs is the sheer amount of money you can make. In general for SG social escorts, working just a few days a week, for an hour appointment a day will potentially make you $2000 to $5000 a month. If you have a day job, that is additional income that will supplement your base income. If you are a student, you probably make more than nearly all starting graduates – considering how doctors and lawyers make less than $4000 per month after CPF and taxes deduction. The best part about a part time social escort job is that you do not even need to quit your school or job to do this. You can do it part and time and make a total of nearly double any of your peers in gross monthly income. Although you need to pay taxes on your income derived from this job, you do not need to contribute mandatory contributions to CPF ordinary or special account from your cash earnings from being an escort. This is because you are considered self employed (this is accurate as of 2018 at the point of this writing). Of course, keep in mind that the more available you are, and the less preference for the type of clients (e.g. race or age) the more money you can make.

If being flirty is not up your aisle of competences, then you do not even need to consider applying for an escort job in Singapore. Why would a man hire a woman to sit across him, and not even flirt? If even basic things like holding hands or hugging will make you irk, please do not apply. It will only end in absolute disaster and a complete waste of time for you. Men hire an escort to be a companion who is willing to flirt and keep him company and make him feel as though you are his girlfriend during the period of engagement. Why else would he pay you so much to sit across him like a prude nun?

Also, it is true that some clients are absolute gentlemen, while some are not so gentlemanly. This is part of the job – just like how some customers are very patient at a busy restaurant, while others bang the table, make a din and yell and scold the waitresses and waiters. As long as you have any kind of customer experience, and not be fazed by these clients, then you may consider having a social escort job.

If you are friendly, relaxed and flirty, and not so uptight about everything, then chances are you will do well as an escort. Also, it is highly recommended that you research online more about escort work BEFORE deciding whether you are suited to become one. If you truly are, then apply and prepare for the money to roll in.

Where Do You Find Escorts Now That Backpage Singapore Is Shutdown?

Backpage Singapore used to be a really popular site in Singapore for clients looking for social escorts, however, that slowly changed over the years as they realize that most listings on Backpage Singapore by independent escorts are actually fake photographs. More people got disappointed with the quality of escorts on Backpage Singapore. That completely changed in 2018, when Backpage was shut down internationally, leaving potential clients not being sure where to go to find social escorts.

Actually, this turned out to be one of the best things there is for clients looking for social escorts – because it got rid of the one cesspool of fake photographs and profiles! Although some other sites also provided lots of fake photographs (hence people are wary of independent escorts these days as 99% tend to use fake only photographs), Backpage was the king of them all.

So where do you find social escorts now that Backpage Singapore is shutdown? Here is the answer: agency websites.

That is correct, as long as you are looking for local Singaporean female model escort girls, then a social escort agency website will be your best option. Why is that the case?

Think about it, why do independent escorts feel the need to lie and put up fake photographs on Backpage in the past? This is because they cannot change their own facial looks, and changing their bodies will take many months or years to slim down. Therefore, if they are unattractive, they will simply put a fake photograph to do something commonly known as ‘bait and switch’ – which is an unethical practice. Unfortunately for these independent escort models, there is nothing they can do if they are unattractive and uneducated. They simply cannot attract any clients. This is why independent escorts have a heavy incentive to lie and post fake images to get clients.

On the other hand, there is no incentive for agency websites to lie to their clients. This is simply because they do not make any money if you do not pick a particular escort who is deemed ‘ugly’ by their clients. They can simply hire another beautiful girl as their escort model and they can still continue operating as per normal. They have no incentive to lie as their reputation is at stake for lying, and they can always hire new girls if clients do not like the existing ones. They can still attract clients, and have therefore no incentive at all to recommend lousy escorts to a client like you.

Therefore, the easiest way to find a social escort in Singapore now that Backpage is shut down, is to simply contact a good social escort agency website!
