Competition has spiked among retailers this holiday season, and the sex industry is no exception. A Texas escort is trying to beat the competition by offering discounts to charitable customers who are willing to help needy children.
The escort, a 37-year-old from Houston who goes by “Shelby,” recently began marketing herself online as “Santa’s Little Helper.”
Shelby is competing for the attention of holiday Johns by advertising a pre-Christmas “Toys for Tots Special” to convince consumers to open their wallets for a “sensual” experience. Read more…
Call girls: they’re talented writers! First there was Dr. Brooke Magnanti, whose identity only became known after her blog, Diary of a London Call Girl, became wildly famous and spawned a book and TV series. Now there’s an anonymous East Coast-based woman going by the nom de plume “Charlotte Shane.”
“Charlotte Shane” pens a blog called Nightmare Brunette about her experiences in sex work. In a stellar piece on Salon.com, “Charlotte” explains she tries her hardest not to glamorize prostitution like Hollywood. “I never intend to glamorize my profession, and I don’t list expensive gifts I receive or lavish items I buy for myself,” she wrote. “I avoid rhapsodizing about exotic vacations or name-dropping hotels. I never disclose my rates and I don’t claim every encounter ends in mind-blowing orgasms — or any orgasm at all. That type of sensationalistic hype is really only good for selling books or selling face time on TV shows, neither of which I’m interested in.” She tries to be honest about what working as an escort really is: a job.

Katie Waissel, a contestant on the British TV hit “X Factor,” just found out that her 81-year-old grandmother, Sheila Vogel, works as a paid escort for a mature courtesan agency called Vintage Vamps. Check out this pin-up shot of her from the website, and let me tell you, it is tame by comparison to the other granny call girls advertised! Katie’s grandma makes a jaw-dropping $400 an hour. (Dang, I need to change careers once I’m over 50!) Clearly, this grams isn’t some ho on the corner or your average octagenarian either. The site says of Sheila: “Classic vamps are like fine wine and we are delighted to introduce one of our agency’s great vintages, the grand dame Cecilia Bird.” She added to her profile that, “Beneath my conservative exterior lurks the secret passion to meet up with like-minded gentlemen to share the taste of forbidden fruits.” Spicy, go get ‘em, Grams! How do you think your family would handle news if your Nana decided to do sex work? [The Daily Mail] Keep reading »
Speaking of Ashley Dupre, it looks like there’s a reason the call girl who Eliot Spitzer frequented decided to post a rant about women on her blog today, as opposed to last week or a year ago. Remember how she wanted to be a singer? Looks like she’s drumming up press for her new single, “Inside Out.” And, oh goody, it’s a ballad that kind of reminds me of Vanessa William’s “Save the Best for Last.” Take a listen below. [NY Mag]

The gloves are off! Ashley Dupre, the high-priced escort who brought down former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, lashed out at other women in a blog post.
The 24-year-old said women—NYC ladies, especially—are hypocrites who judge her for having been a call girl, but they still date rich men and bleed their boyfriends dry! Dupre’s choicest insults, after the jump… Keep reading »
This week, the female blogosphere is abuzz with chatter over a story by a college senior in Philadelphia entitled “My Sugar Daddy.” According to “Melissa Beech,” the pseudonymous author, she’s your average, upper-middle class girl: “I was blessed to have been raised with class, sent to the best schools, and taught to be well read, well spoken and well traveled.” During college, she worked in retail and as a waitress, but she spent more than she earned and the economy was tanking. When she set out to find a “real” job, she encountered a man who made her a different kind of offer: a “Mutually Beneficial Arrangement.” In a nutshell, he forks over around $5,000 a month, they travel together, he takes her to fancy hotels, and they have sex. He was already looking for such a relationship as a member of SeekingArrangement.com. Beech believes what she’s doing isn’t prostitution: “women have used their wiles and charms to get ahead for years.” So what do you think? Is she a smart girl working a recession to her advantage — or a call girl in denial? Keep reading »
On Monday night’s third episode of Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Belle had an overnight job with a client — who only seemed to want to sleep. Bored out of her mind, Belle went downstairs to get a drink and meets another man who wants to hire her straight away. This is clearly the call girl’s version of when you have Friday night plans with that guy you’ve been seeing, but then that hot guy from work asks if you want to hang out and you agree to both without really considering the logistics. In the clip above, Belle explains the three rules of conversation with a client, which also totally apply to first dates as well. [Showtime: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl] Keep reading »
Being a single gal is fun and can even allow you to get a little extra freaky! But sometimes the pendulum swings the other way — not knowing where your next piece of ass will come from can leave you in a sad dry spell, and even the professionals aren’t immune. Heidi Fleiss, the infamous Hollywood madam, had it all. And by “it” we mean every A-list actor in LA. Not only did she score the top booty, they paid her well to do it too! At the height of her career she had Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Charlie Sheen, and a Porsche. In 1997, she was thrown into an unsexy pair of handcuffs, put in jail, and left penniless for her escort service. Now, at 42, the former working girl has opened her own shop in podunk Pahrump, NV. Strangely enough, even though prostitution is legal in Nevada, she’s not putting the rump in Pahrump. Instead of a ring of call girls, she’s in charge of the spin cycles at her little launderette cleverly called “Dirty Laundry.” She’s cleaning clothes and cleaning up her act while living in a mobile home with 20 parrots she saved from a closing pet store. “I love those birds more than I’ve ever loved any man,” Heidi said in a recent interview. “It’s been two years since I had sex and I don’t care if I ever do it again.” Sigh, we’ve all been through a sexless rough patch and it’s hard to pull yourself out — even if you’re the Madam Fleiss (and especially if you’re a crazy bird lady). But, Heidi, you just have to get back up on the man-horse and ride! Everyone in America knows you can do it. [NOTW]

Getting Eliot Spitzer’s call girl, Ashley Dupre, on video was Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francisâ€™ first order of business after his release from jail. However, once GGW realized they already had plenty of footage of her that they got for free, they retracted the offer. It turns out that she appeared in videos for the franchise before she was a call girl — including one where sheâ€™s a teenager, topless, and drunk. Now sheâ€™s trying to sue GGW for $10 mil in damages, saying she was underage when they filmed her. Dupre is finding out the hard way, the number one rule is get the money first, then do the job. Though she may have been underage at the time, GGW does have footage of her consenting to being filmed and stating that she is 18, so who knows if her case will hold up in court. Either way, Francis is as big a dirt bag as ever, saying, “I think it’s ironic that she charged Governor Spitzer $2,000 for sex and she wants to charge me $10 million for taking some naked pictures of her…I feel like I’m getting a raw deal.” Gag.
