BROTHEL WORK - SEX WORK / ESCORT WORK
Written on May 24th, 2021 by Anna G
So you'd like to start in the adult industry as an escort and would like to begin through a brothel
A first choice for a lot of ladies looking to start out in escort work / sex work. Brothels handle the security, marketing and booking/admin side of the business allowing you to focus primarily on your clients and service.
Are all brothels the same?
As with every industry there are some businesses that are great, care about the happiness and safety of their workers and some that are less than ideal. There is also variations between a brothel's management and the level of experience and support from management can vary widely.
Picking the Right Brothel
It is very hard to pick the best venue to work for when starting out, without any industry experience it is easy to fall for catchy slogans and promises of big cash without knowing what to look for. Ideally, you want to find a venue that is supportive and knowledgeable enough to help you reach your highest earning potential in an environment that is safe and comfortable for you.
Ask lots of questions, you can usually tell the quality of management by their ability and willingness to answer questions.
Work out how you want to be marketed - this is generally a collaborative effort between you and management, you need to have a cohesive vision to be successful. Without experience, you might not know what will work best for you specifically (which is okay!) but form a plan so that you both know what you are comfortable with - the way you are marketed can dramatically affect the kind of clientele you receive, a good manager will know after meeting you what your market is.
Find out what safety/security measures are in place.
Look at the types of ladies currently on roster for a venue, if they are all fairly similar this may be simply coincidence or it can be because the clientele of that venue has a certain preference - ask management about this as you may be more successful at another venue or they may actually be searching for a lady that is different to their current roster.
Find a place that is genuinely supportive - almost every venue will say they have "supportive female management" but whether this is the case varies. Schedule a time to actually speak to management to discuss any questions you may have and learn more about how they actually help you achieve your financial targets.
Find out what is or isn't supplied - lots of venues supply everything for service (i.e. condoms, lube, etc) but some places don't. Find out what is supplied and what you need to bring.
Ask what the dresscode is - some venues have a preference for lingerie, some require stockings and some will expect you to wear evening-wear. Find out what the venue you're speaking to is after.
Ask about how the clients meet you (introductions/intros) and how they select. A good manager will be able to give you tips for intros and how to secure the booking, along with provide ongoing support in this field.
Find out how many ladies are rostered per shift.
Don't fall for enticing messages promising how much you will make. No venue can guarantee you will make a certain amount, if they do, ask if they provide a retainer if you don't reach their claims. Of course that doesn't mean you can't reach those amounts, but that requires a collaboration from management with how you're marketed, advertising, and of course your own service and attitude towards clients - find a brothel where managers help you reach your fullest potential rather than provide gimmicky claims.
Don't think you don't have any other options, there are hundreds of brothels and escort agencies out there. Find one you feel most comfortable with before starting out.
Don't be pushed into services or roles that you are not comfortable with, you at any point have a right to withdraw consent and the amount and range of services you offer is entirely up to you. Ask what the minimum service requirements are (what is included in the booking price) and if you are not comfortable with providing this service, decline the position.
Don't think you need to perform or produce anything sexual to gain a position at a venue. Photos being sent for review by a venue/recruitment purposes should illustrate how you look but can be fully clothed (we do not need to see nude/sexual images for recruitment). If you find that a venue requires nude images or any sexual services for employment - run!
Don't over-commit - only agree to shifts/rosters that you can actually fulfil (good managers will be able to advise you when you're overcommitting). Doing too many hours can actually be to your detriment as it's at the expense of your overall service and presentation and will negatively impact you in the long run.
Don't go in bite off more than you can chew - by this we mean don't put down an extensive list of services you might not be able to handle. Keep your list of services simple and basic until you have experience dealing with minor issues that may arise in bookings. You can always add services as you become more experienced.
Things to Think About When Starting Out
Consider why you are applying - the industry really isn't for everyone and although the idea of quick cash may be enticing, whether or not you can do the work is another story. Ladies that do not have a genuine interest in the work tend to struggle as this affects the way you present when meeting clients and the quality of service you provide.
If you are definitely interested in starting in the industry think about how you'd like to be marketed - things like your "working name" (alias that you work under), the way you dress, the way you're advertised and the service you provide all come into it. You may wish to discuss with management when applying what their thoughts are and come to an agreement as to how you wish to be portrayed.
Be wary of venues that provide little to no instruction when starting out in the industry, generally the less information a venue provides, the less support they will give you as a whole.
Work at Discreet Gentlemen's Club - Newcastle Adult Work / Newcastle Sex Work
So you've decided to start your career in adult work / sex work at Discreet Gentlemen's Club.
We pride ourselves on having one of the most experienced and supportive management teams in the industry offering ongoing training and direction to help you achieve all of your financial goals.
Discreet Gentlemen's Club is the biggest and most renown full-service venue in the Hunter Region and our service area is one of the largest in the country! Don't let that intimidate you though, being a regional town we like to limit the amount of ladies on shifts to allow each lady the opportunity to reach thier maximum earning potential. This also allows us to have better rapport with our ladies and make sure all ladies are given the same high-quality support consistently (as opposed to venues in some larger cities where you may be working against 20+ other ladies!).
The Recruitment Process
The first step in the recruitment process is by applying to work with us via our CAREERS page. Provide information about yourself including your stats, location and any relevant experience in the industry - if you have no experience that's okay, it just let's us know how much information and how in depth we need to be during the interview and induction.
You will receive a response via email and/or text message soon to schedule an interview.
Interviews conducted by our recruitment manager are generally scheduled for between 12pm-6pm AEST Monday to Friday. If you require an interview outside of those hours, we may be able to schedule an interview with one of our other experienced managers.
Interviews are conducted either in person (in the case of local ladies - highly recommended if you can get to the venue) or via FaceTime or Skype for ladies further away. During this time questions are answered and further details are discussed about the position along with your availability and experience - it is a fairly casual conversation which mostly determines compatibility within the business and whether or not you would like to proceed.
In the case of in-house interviews, induction generally is done in conjunction with the interview and for interstate or travelling ladies, this occurs on arrival. The induction usually goes for an hour or longer as we try to be as thorough as possible in providing instruction as to safety and security measures along with other processes of our business. Information is provided for how to achieve your best outcomes both with intros and with extending bookings with clients. We discuss ways in which you would like to be marketed along with dealing with the varying types of clients.
The induction basically gives you all the groundwork for starting a successful career in the industry.
Please note: the learning process is always ongoing and you are always welcome to ask for more direction as you continue on - management will try and assist and offer advice if we believe you are not reaching your potential. This additional support is always there if you feel you require it also.
At Discreet Gentlemen's Club you set the shifts you would like to work, you can work as often or as little as you like and the times most suited to you. Roster requests are submitted by midday Wednesday for the following week's shifts and are finalised and sent out on Sunday. Minor changes may be made in this period and will be discussed with you during the interview and induction process.
New ladies to the industry: we do not start inexperienced ladies on a Friday or Saturday night shifts as they are the fastest paced shifts and we cannot guarantee the usual high quality level of support for new ladies (we field hundreds of calls, texts, emails and walk-in clients on these nights and do not have the ability to micromanage ladies). We will direct you to start either on a weeknight shift or one of our day shifts as, although they are still busy, it is a manageable level where we can still assist and check in with you.
Your First Shift
For your first shift at Discreet Gentlemen's Club we will pair you with an experienced escort that can assist you with any additional questions along the way and show you how to conduct a proper health check on a client and how to reset a room, along with give you additional tips on the job.
You will have ongoing support of management also who will check in with you at several points of your first shift to make sure you are okay and to see if you need any additional support.
Out of Town Recruits
At Discreet Gentlemen's Club we understand and appreciate that not every lady wishes to work in their home town or city, in fact many of the ladies that work with us travel from various other cities and states. At Discreet we provide accommodation for ladies travelling for work and can offer flight/transport assistance for ladies travelling to Newcastle for the first time.
Ladies from out of town are encouraged to apply - we can discuss what options are available during the interview and recruitment process.
