newbie looking to get started as a stripper/escort

Recommended Posts

HI there! I just started my second life less than a week ago.. Im very interested in getting into the stripping/escort business. Ive went to apply at a few places but seems as though they are only accepting girls who have been around for a month or more. Are there any clubs that would give a newbie a shot and hire her?

  Also in the mean time while Im looking for an employer,is there anything I should pick to have ready when I am able to start,AO's,HUD's,etc?

youd prolly do better freelance .. no commitment that way .. no set hrs .. no being tied down to 1 or a few places .. no 'boss' to kiss up to .. etc

For strippers/dancers clubs are ok (just make sure they don't cut off too much from your tips, 20% is too much!). It takes a while to find a good club which doesn't see you as their slave. The 30 days+ rule is for safety reasons, who wants to hire someone who could possible disapear within the first weeks? Also the clubs want to make sure their workers are familiar enough with SL and don't struggle on "easy" things.


For an escort, I would highly suggest you to do it freelance. I haven't seen one club which doesn't put it hands deep in your pockets to have a big part of your income. Also freelancing in this business works fine and keeps you independend from workshifts. You can work when you want, where you want and with who you want.

and don't expect to make much of any actual income, especially as a dancer. Most nights you'll be happy if your tips pay for the clothes you bought to match the evening's theme.

As an escort things may be (if you're a good one, with lots of experience and a great looking avatar with all the expensive sex huds, prim genitals, etc.) better, but the initial cost to get started is a lot higher so takes longer to offset that.

Depends. In the past, I had luck to find a club which only cut of 10% and paid the dancers for every event they worked.

Hmm...and escorts...well I guess its possible to earn some lindens and invest them again in the avatar and set your prices higher after that. Not all men need an already overequipped escort, most of the job is to create a good image in the clients brain and today it isn't that hard to get a nice avatar with little money.

I've been thinking of trying some kind of SL job like this myself. I haven't done it before either, but I have a lot of experience with roleplaying, so I figured it shouldn't be too difficult... Wondering though, any suggestions on the best ways to promote yourself if you start as a freelance escort? And does anyone know about how much escorts usually charge these days?

And hmm, as for dancing, most places I've seen take about 20% of the tips, so might be hard to find a good club that takes less. Could still be fun to try though.

Thanks for all the replys! Ive been hangin around a few places in world getting a feel for the scene and seeing how things work. making money isnt that big a deal,I mainly want to do it to have fun really,its something Ive always wanted to do.

 

As fas as cash to spend on AO's HUD's etc. thats not that big an issue. Any recommendations on any to pick up?

making your avatar attractive is a matter of taste & style .. not of how much L$ you spend on her .. i spend 0 yet my avatar is as attractive as that of women who spend L$ thousands & thousands .. you can get nice skins hair eyes clothes etc for free .. you hav2 be friendly & nice thats the main thing

i dont 'work' as an escort & i never ask for L$ in exchange for anything .. on the other hand by being attractive & nice i have things given to me like you wouldnt believe .. sailboats & castles & vehicles & outfits & L$ .. & like you say i do it for fun .. i dont really care if im given anything or not .. if i like someone & am having fun i may have pixel slex w/ them .. or may not .. & in either case i dont negotiate for anything in exchange for my time & attention .. but if someone wants to give me something im not going to turn it down .. this is my approach .. actually working in a club might be different .. i bet even the best escorts & dancers dont get more stuff than i do tho .. even if they work a regular gig

roflmao! This is seriously funny and highly highly doubtful

It's my opinion that answers should be truthful and helpful to those who are asking.

Hi AdrianLynn,

You can get a nice ava for around 299L. There are reasonable complete avatars and some usually come with 4 to 6 looks and extras such as makeup layers, nails, etc. Of course what one person may think is an attractive look another may not, so be it. You need to feel comfortable with the way you look and how you feel in that look. Do a search in marketplace for complete avatars and then you can choose the price range, that is usually cheaper than buying your skin and shape separate. There are many beautiful hair designers too. Make sure you can edit or modify your shape as most of them come not so natural looking as far as proportions.

Do a search and join some groups "freelance escort groups" there you will find many that are like an idea and support group where other freelance escorts share their insight and places to find clients. If you are creative you can be successful and do not need to purchase all kinds of fancy emotes, huds and elaborate AO's. You will need realistic genitals as skins do not come with those.

Good Luck and enjoy your SL!

Oh,I got the look's part down already! I spent the first few days of my second life just buying different skins and clothes and tweaking my look.. I didnt even want to wander into a public area without feeling 100% confident about my look. As far as joining freelance groups,I hadnt thought of that. Ill search up and join a few and see if I can get started that way. Thanks for the tip!

Hello Adrian,

 

I never worked as an escort - but I have seen the performance of a few that were hired by friends of mine. The biggest problem I saw was their lack of role play skills. One I saw sent away - with the money - because she was so horrible. People who pay for escorts do not want to just  jump on poseballs and watch their pixels hump away. They want the escort to set the scene with words - make it an enticing experience for the mind. That is what it is all about. If you do not want to go that route - I believe the escorts who use voice are in demand also. But here also - some talent for it is needed.

Learn how to role play - how to use the written word to make it interesting for your customers - then you will never have in issue making money.

And the look of your avatar? It is important! My experience though - men will react mostly to an individual look, a look that looks most like a real woman - and not the stick thin barbie dolls. When I take my bbw avatar out - I have men falling all over me ....with my supermodel girl? Not so much :matte-motes-bashful-cute-2:

I want to coment on that point where you basicla created the image "real women = bbw girl avatar". First, an individual look doesn't mean more fat on the hips. I agree, that an individual and unique look helps to get the right attention, but that doesn't mean getting chubby = getting individual. Its basicly about not looking like the typical SL Marketplace picture model, but getting something from your own creativity and a good taste into the avatar.

Second, a real women doesn't indicate to carry a lot of extra weight. I looked at your profile picture to get an idea about what your bbw avatar might look like....and I have to say, when I look into the mirror im nothing from that. I have no modellike shape, but I also don't fall into the other corner and carry weight I shouldn't have. Also I guess what gets you a lot attention are your big breasts. I mean...most women I see are far far away from that size in real life.

So...my point is, that chubby and bbw doesn't automatical make an avatar attractive, realistic or better than any other shape. Like in the real world, there are many different body types and everyone of these can be part of a unique, great ad individual avatar, as long as its owner has taste, creativity and avoids to just wear one popular style.

 

(Oh....and big boobs might get you attention...my avatars don't have such, so its just what comes to my mind)

Hello Syo,

the bbw thing was an example! Do you know what an example is?

I said it is important to create an individual look - never said that look should be a bigger woman. The bbw thing was....wait for it....an example :smileywink:

Anyway - when working as an escort the ability to write is still a lot more important then the look of the avatar.

No need to get bent all out of shape because my girl has big boobs - I like her look and enjoy playing her - if people do not like it - they do not have to interact with  me. Things are that simple in sl.

E.

You made it sound like there is just skinny barbie dolls on the one side and bbw on the other :catwink:

And to the boobs: I just assumed that this maybe why so many men fall for you and that the size isn't more realistic than any modellike shape (read like: Not many women have a model shape, not many women have breasts of that size).

They may not be my personal taste and I'm always ready to stand in for the advantages of smaller breasts...but I don't refuse to talk to people just because their boobs are on the way to get bigger than their heads :matte-motes-grin:

Once again...it was....................an EXAMPLE! I did not make it sound that way. You read it that way.

I do not think it is the boobs alone. My experience in sl is that men in general prefer a bit of a chubbier shape over the ones that have the body fat slider at zero and the boobs pretty much maxed out.

An individual shape could be anything. It could be a shorter chubbier women with small breast. It could be a big breasted woman with short legs. It could be an athletic woman with long legs. It could be anything.....what I see is mostly the same shape......body fat at zero, big firm boobs, tiny waist, long legs, long hair.

But again - the avatar is just one thing - and actually a minor thing in the big scheme of things. I think people like me because I am easy going, low drama, and I can write an good enjoyable role play scene. In the end - that is what it is all about - to have some fun in sl, right?

You don't have to point out that the roleplaypart is the more important one at the end of the day (have some years of roleplayexperiance myself). Sure people will come back to you, if they experiance that you are nice, friendly, funny, talented and what else. But especially in the escort business a potential client doesn't know all that and has just the avatar and maybe the profile to make a choice.

And again, you are bashing on "Barbie avatars". I guess I stop here to explain it again....may your boobs not break your virtual back. :matte-motes-wink:

I am not bashing on anything. I said that so many avatars have the same look - and seeing the same look in almost every female avatar is boring. That is not bashing anything, that is my opinion.

I think it is important to point out that role play is the most important part in being a good escort. This is after all a thread where a new player asked for advice on being an escort. Many new players do not know that actually playing out scenes - using words to describe what is happening - is part of it. I met quite a few new players who thought just poseball humping was it - that is what escorts did.

So my advise to any new player who wants to be an escort is to learn how to role play - learn the basics - and then start with a low rate if you are still pretty inexperienced.

You seem awfully preoccupied with my big boobs - whats up with that? Are they that interesting to you?

Hi 

I see you are after work. I own a club and will accept 14 days or older, but if you are under 14days as long as your mature in every aspect, and are over 18+ in rl and of age consent in your rl country,  then we are happy to talk with you.

Please contact our Staff Manager Kexture Kurka OR our General Manager Xbombshell21 and leave them an IM, and they will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for you interest

As the first male to post a reply.... Start with a nice profile picture. Fill out your profile, make picks of your likes, dislikes, things you are willing / unwilling to do, several different pictures as well. Use it to promote yourself.

Secondly, you are only a couple of weeks away from the 30 day mark. Spend it exploring. Find quiet, secluded out of the way places to take your customers. make sure its ok to have sex there (ie make sure its adult land and the land owner is ok with it)


Above all else,  Don't fall for someone. you will only end up with a broken heart.

Have fun!

Can only agree with what the others have said..which kind of makes this post a waste of time, doesn't it??

VERY IMPORTANT to know how to Role Play!! Conversation as well as sexual descriptions.

Make a FULL profile. Not just "Hey, I'm an escort, come see me.." Guys will more likely come see you if you have something more to offer them than sex. You can get sex almost anywhere in SL and most times you don't even have to pay for it.

You want to make the client feel welcome...wanted...this way, they'll be excited to see you and play some more.

I might also suggest that you find out the going rate for escorting. I don't know what it is, but if you're too high or too low, you may not get as many clients.

Good Luck

I Accept young Avatars a lot of places refuse but everyone needs a Chance if no ones hires you you can't get experience. My tip % is pretty low but like I read earlier tips are not that good for newer people,but feel free to contact me if not for a job then just to make a new friend. My club does have a few poles I let freelancers use if you chose to go that direction aswell.
