I've often heard stories of women who choose to work as escorts so they can put themselves through college or buy a house. Others make as much money as possible while working as a lesbian escort so that they can invest the funds and hopefully secure their financial future down the road.

Keep in mind that you can easily make several hundred dollars or even several thousand in a single hour, whereas your day job is probably more of a long-term career that will provide you with stability that escorting alone will not supply.

Having a “real job” comes with lots of benefits that are often missing for women who only escort to support themselves. Health insurance, paid vacations, maternity leave, holidays, dental insurance and retirement plans are just a few perks of being employed.

Here's the thing though. Even women who hold very respectable and high paying positions at their place of employment should consider escorting if they are open to the idea. The reason is simple: most of us could always use the extra money.

Even those of us who do quite well occasionally find ourselves scrambling to cover all the various costs of living each month of the year as we pay bills, replace items and make new purchases. Most people still find themselves wondering about the future, how they will provide for their families and care for themselves later in life.

We worry about running out of money and going broke, even when we are nowhere close.

And on the less practical side of the matter, having more money means being able to have more of the things that you like buying.

Whether that's trips to your favorite places around the world, cars, nice houses, tuition for your kids or just an indulgent shopping spree in New York City, escorting makes it possible to have or do all of these things more often and it only demands a couple hours each week to start making considerably more than you are used to at your day job.
