Is there a way to avoid fakes, ripoffs, and catfishing when looking for an escort? On the other side of the coin, how do experienced providers ensure their safety and know clients they are meeting aren’t bad actors? These common worries in the client/companion experience often stop people from living out their fantasies.

Safety For Clients

First-time clients are particularly concerned with being taken advantage of. This is especially true for those without much prior exposure to sex-positive culture or this type of professional relationship. The number one fear for clients is getting ripped off by someone that claims to be who they’re not. It can feel impossible not only trying to figure out where to meet service providers but also determining if they are trustworthy. 

When seeking an escort that’s not only real but also reputable, the first thing you want to do is make sure they have a solid digital footprint. If they only have a relatively new Twitter account, take pause. Instead, look for experienced pleasure curators that don’t just have multiple active social media accounts but a well put together website too. Lastly, make sure they are listed with reputable provider directories. 

Are All Provider Directories Secure?

When evaluating an escort directory there are a few things you need to take into consideration. First, be sure to use a website with a secure server. You don’t want your personal information getting into the wrong hands. Secondly, always use a site that verifies that the provider is who they claim to be.

My personal favorite is Slixa because they satisfy all my security requirements. While some sites claim to verify providers, their process really isn’t much of a process at all. Slixa uses specialized independent photo verification so you can be sure the person you see in the photos is really who you’re talking to. Because of this, Slixa has a reputation for featuring dedicated professionals who take their work seriously.

Slixa also uses strict data handling protocols. Additionally, they are hosted in the European Union, which enhances the level of protection for providers and clients alike. Their global presence and continued expansion is a plus too. If you’re traveling to Australia, for example, finding a nearby provider is as simple as navigating to Slixa Melbourne.

I appreciate that Slixa cares about my experience as a client and has gone to great lengths to make me feel safe. They also help support a variety of charitable organizations that give back to the provider community.

Safety for Escorts

Safety and transparency in the client/provider relationship is a two-way street. Let me tell you about my situation. I am a married polyamorous man that hires escorts. Communication and safety (both physical and emotional safety) are paramount in all my relationships. This is why so I happily provide my wife, girlfriends, and companions the information they need to feel secure.

When it comes to escorts specifically, they put themselves in very vulnerable positions with clients so they must make safety a priority. Providers deserve to be communicated with openly and allowed time to achieve a comfortable level of trust. Here are a few things I do to make sure the experience is positive for both of us: 

My 5 Commandments for Hiring Escorts

  1. Slixa verificationsUse a secure website with verified independent photo verification for providers.
  2. Follow your provider’s client verification process precisely and without question.
  3. Pay upfront in cash in the manner they specify (with exact change).
  4. Communicate your interests and experiences clearly with a provider before meeting so that you can be sure to arrive on the same page with similar expectations. If you want something specific like BDSM or Tantra (Slixa offers specific verification of qualifications for both), ensure your potential paramour is qualified and comfortable with such experiences. 
  5. Tips are common courtesy. You give gratuity to the person that brings your food, so don’t forget to tip the person that juggles your junk. You can also ask ahead of time whether they want cash, lingerie, art, or perfume. Some companions prefer small gifts to cash.

At the end of the day, your greatest concern as a client is likely similar to that of your companion– safety. You both want to connect with someone you trust that puts your security and well being first. Start online by making sure your provider has an established web presence on social media, maintains their own website, plus is listed with a trusted directory in your area like Slixa Sydney. Show them you have their best interests at heart by following my 5 commandments for hiring escorts. And don’t forget to tip ;)
