Visiting an Escort in a Hotel

Although I am a Manchester mature escort, I am also a touring escort. When I go on tour I usually stay in clean, comfortable discreet hotels. While you may prefer to visit a girl in the privacy of her own home, this isn’t feasible for touring escorts. Serviced apartments can work in some situations but hotels feel safer for many women touring on their own. (Not to mention the convenience of unlimited bedding and towels!)

Manchester mature escort always selects clean, comfortable hotels for incalls

There are many advantages to visiting a girl who is working from a hotel. For one thing, you can feel confident that there will be a hot, lovely shower with clean towels for you to use. You know that it won’t be some dodgy house or flat with unseen people lurking in the kitchen. Assuming it’s a decent hotel, you can feel safe parking your car and walking to and from your car. Nobody wants a problem in a semi-public space so the odds of something dodgy or dangerous happening are very low.

I know that some gentlemen are uncomfortable visiting an escort in a hotel. There are two main reasons for this:

1. They think that everybody is looking at them and knows what they are doing.
2. They live and work close by and are worried they’ll be seen entering a hotel by someone who knows them.

Reason number 2 is perfectly understandable. If you are seen by someone who knows you entering a hotel on a Tuesday afternoon, they may wonder what you’re doing. Even though you could be there for a meeting or a meal in the restaurant, it could possibly bring up questions if someone else there on business sees you entering the lift to the rooms. You should probably avoid hotels right on your own doorstep.

Reason number 1 isn’t uncommon, but it isn’t really rational. The truth is, nobody really cares what other people are doing unless they are behaving unusually. Walking through a hotel lobby and taking a lift to the rooms is so common that it won’t be noticed by anyone. The employees are busy with their jobs and really aren’t paying attention to people coming and going. If you feel as if they may greet you and offer assistance, then all you have to do is hold your mobile phone up to your ear, pretending to speak to someone, as you stride confidently towards the lifts.

Some people worry about CCTV in hotels. The truth is, nobody is watching. They only go and look if there is a problem, after the fact. To some extent, this may act as a deterrent for people who may wish to make trouble and so escorts feel a bit safer about meeting strangers intimately. But if the hotel is paying attention and has an issue with the activities of consenting adults, then it would be the escort who suffers the brunt of this. Let me put it this way: I and many of my friends have worked from hotel rooms many times and we have never had any issues with management. If I haven’t had any problems, why would you?

Plenty of clean, fresh towels…

When I say that I am staying in a clean, comfortable, and discreet hotel what I mean is a modern, large, busy hotel. The discretion lies in the anonymity of a big, busy lobby. The most suitable hotels have restaurants, conference centres, possibly even health spas so that lots of people are going in all directions. A quiet little place with nobody in the lobby but the concierge is NOT discreet! Quite the opposite.

That said, there are a few points of etiquette that you may wish to keep in mind:

1. I and every escort I know will ask you to call when you arrive at the hotel from outside the hotel. (Some girls may text the room but I won’t and neither will my friends. We would prefer to speak to you and tell you verbally which room we’re in.) You do not need to speak to the front desk and ask for the escort. Don’t call from the lobby next to the reception desk – always call from outside the hotel, either from the car park or just outside the doors.

2. Be patient when you call for a booking regarding the name of the hotel. We are not going to tell you exactly where we are until we have had a chance to talk to you and make sure that we are a good match for you. Some may ask you to call from a nearby landmark while others will tell you the hotel to go to. But we won’t tell you where we are right off the bat!

If you think you know where we are, don’t lead with a guess. “Hi! I assume you’re at the Excalibur!” Well, maybe I am and maybe I am not. But I don’t want to confirm anything until I have verified that we should meet. Even if I am in the only hotel in town, I am not going to tell you before we’ve established a booking. You don’t win any prizes for guessing correctly so just leave it alone. Trust us! We want you to get to us on time and unflustered so have faith that we will tell you everything you need to know when you need to know it.

And if you are staying in the same hotel… well, you probably shouldn’t say so. I, and many girls I know, would rather avoid another guest in the same hotel. If you suspect a girl is in the same hotel as you, and this doesn’t make YOU uneasy, then just book her without saying anything about where you are. You may be glad you did – discretion works both ways!

London, Cardiff, Leeds, and the Oxford Comma

I’ve been travelling a bit, lately, and not all of it has been touring for work. Some of it has been sheerly for pleasure. (Well, work can be sheer pleasure, as well!)

I recently went to a little two-day metal “festival” in Cardiff. It was at a fantastic venue called Fuel Rock Club very close to the Castle in the centre of the town.

I had originally planned to stay the week in Cardiff and work there as a tour stop, but the lure of London was too great and so I only came for the weekend. My train from London to Wales was very slow as it wound all over the countryside, practically circling Swinton. At least I was able to upgrade to first class for £15 and enjoyed the passing scenery in comfort. I even got a good look at one of the Wiltshire white horses, but not the truly ancient one.

I thought Cardiff itself was fantastic. The narrow ancient streets converted into Victorian shopping arcades were beautiful and I discovered a place that does proper, authentic New York subs. The New York Deli in the High Street Arcade is run by an American woman who has her pastrami and corned beef specially made to be the Real Deal and their sandwiches – washed down with root beer – are delicious. They are also ridiculously large to the point of being difficult to eat. I got cole slaw up my nose with every bite, but it was worth it.

The festival was great fun. I saw a few familiar faces from other gigs around Britain, and a few of my friends’ bands played it so I felt totally at home. For me, the highlight of the weekend was Desecration’s headline set on Saturday. Classic, awesome Welsh death metal! And Fuel is a wonderful little pub. The only drawback was some sort of drainage problems on Womanby street that gave off a pretty awful stench of sewage whenever you went outside. Luckily, I am a non-smoker so I didn’t have to stand outside very often!

I really enjoyed my train ride back up to Manchester, as I saw a lot of “How Green Was My Valley” scenery through the South of Wales. Going through Hereford was a treat, as well. I used to live in Gloucester and always thought that Herefordshire was the loveliest place… it’s like time has bypassed that little corner of England and there’s something about the red brick parsonages and rolling green hills that has an almost soporific effect on me. I really want to get back down there again, soon.

In the meantime, I have a second visit to Liverpool planned for this week. My first visit was pretty successful. Although nothing like as busy as London, I thought I did well there, especially considering the week I was there was before Easter and a great many schools were on holiday. I love Liverpool and go there frequently for gigs. Staying there for several days gives me an opportunity to see more of the town. Even though I tend to be very disciplined when I tour and rarely leave the hotel, I make a point of getting out for a nice meal or walk to a pub and I am gagging to pay a second visit to the Walker Art Gallery. What a fantastic museum!

I had planned to visit Leeds in the middle of May but a friend of mine went and encountered disaster. The hotel I’d booked – a chain for which I have a loyalty card and a hotel that has long been considered very easy to work from – has suddenly installed keycard locks blocking the lifts! My friend had paid in advance (very tempting to do when the rates are so much better) and so she was out of pocket with no place to work. She chose to pay for another hotel and so ended up only slightly in profit for the week. While I could also book the same second hotel she did, she felt that the business was a bit slow. A few other girls have had similar disappointing tours of Leeds and so I decided to cancel my booking and go to Oxford, instead. I have a friend who does well there. Plus, I’ve always wanted to see the town and I’m excited about my hotel, which is a nice one located a bit out in the countryside on the river. I don’t know how much site-seeing I’ll get to do, but I anticipate at least a couple of nice walks or runs along the river.

Working as an escort should be fun, and I am really enjoying touring. It’s great to have my base in Manchester, where I can offer incalls from my own flat in the city centre, but I’ve been bitten by the touring bug and I anticipate a lot more travel in my future.

I picked a good week to stay home!

I caught a cold when I was in London and figured I would take a couple of days off. Then the bad weather hit and I saw no point in fighting traffic to make it into the city centre. So I have had a nice, long rest at home. I rarely take holidays. I may nip off to a festival and I will certainly take a day off if I feel ill, but I guess being American means that I haven’t ever really gotten that sense of entitlement to four weeks vacation every year. I think it’s a great thing about UK culture – I just didn’t grow up thinking that way and so I never really do it, myself. I feel sort of guilty for not working, to be honest. I guess if I were on salary I wouldn’t feel that way but I feel as if I should be working and putting more money in the bank. That’s why this was a good week to stay at home: with the bad weather I probably wouldn’t have had many bookings, anyway.

I think it’s good for us to take time away from our jobs and so I didn’t even have my phone number displayed this week. I checked emails once a day or so but that’s it. I did, however, spend some time thinking about things I can do to improve my services. I also gave some thought to how complacent I have become in relying entirely upon Adultwork for my business. I think AW is the best site for sexworkers and clients in the UK to find one another, but it’s important to think beyond this cozy bubble and be prepared for anything. If something happens to Adultwork, then it’s good to have other measures in place.

I had a nice chat with someone at Pleasure to Meet You on Twitter about this a couple of days ago. PTMU is a new escort directory that is somehow related to Vivastreet (I’m not entirely sure how but I think they are “sister sites.”) It’s free to post on and allows for more detailed information on services and rates than the very expensive Vivastreet does. We chatted about the challenges of getting the directory known about and what it will take to break the near monopoly Adultwork currently has. I do think AW is a good site, and I appreciate that I don’t have to pay anything to be on there (sales of my private gallery cover the small charges for displaying my phone number or “Available Today”) but they currently have too much power over the scene in the UK. I think PTMU is visually more attractive, easier to navigate, and I like how all it takes to bump my profile up the page is to post a status update. However, if it truly does take off then there will be the usual problems of scam artists, etc. that plague Adultwork and any other popular directory.

One issue that I have with Vivastreet will also need to be addressed by PTMU: independent escorts and agency girls should be in separate areas. I don’t like my profile buried in a pile of glossy photoshopped agency photos and I know that many clients would rather not deal with an agency. Vivastreet would be better value for money if they were segregated in that way.

I have had some good results with Backpage.com, although only in Manchester. I paid for a small ad for my time in London and found it too costly to pay to have it reposted regularly to the top of that hot mess of a page.

I’ve been working on my website a bit this week. I would like to blog more on it, especially as I would be able to share links and I would like that blog to be more personal. I have never paid to show a link to my website on my AW profile before, assuming that everything a potential client wants to know will already be on my profile here. But I am going to look into that and see if that doesn’t get some people following my blog and social media accounts.

Speaking of social media… I had a couple of glasses of wine at dinner earlier in the week and ended up buying a Selfie Stick! (For those who don’t know what that is, it’s a pole with a bluetooth button in the handle that allows one to take selfies with their phones from about a metre away.) I know it’s a silly thing but I would like to be able to post new photos easily and I think it could be handy and fun to have. I may even start an Instagram account to go along with my Twitter account. Hopefully I’ll have something to share in the next couple of days. You may find some of them on my Gallery.

I am attending a conference tomorrow in Manchester on “Policy, Policing and Protection” of sexwork being put on by the UK National Sexworkers Project. It is billed as:

An informative and lively event looking at the BIG debate on criminalisation and how the law affects the safety of sex workers, the ability of Police to offer protection and the impact on Health and Social Care providers when delivering services.

Unfortunately, I will only be able to attend in the morning as I will be available for bookings in the afternoon. If I hadn’t taken last week off, I would have been happy to stay all day. But I hope to meet a few people and get some information on what is going on in regards to policy and proposed changes to the law.

And here is the paragraph I put in for the search engines to find: This paragraph talks about how I’m an Escort in Manchester. That is to say, an independent Manchester escort, prized among the many Manchester independent escorts and offering incalls in Manchester city centre as well as outcalls in Manchester because that is what escorts who work in Manchester tend to do. I don’t know if this paragraph actually works but someone told me to do that. They said, “Kimberly, one of the keys to getting your website of blog up in the search rankings is to put the search terms you need all over every page and update these pages frequently.” I said, “OK, then, I will do that. I will bang on and on about how I am an escort in Manchester who does incalls. I will think of the various search terms someone might use if they were looking for an escort like me – that is to say, tall escort in Manchester who is independent – or maybe they just type in something like “someone who will please drain my balls in Manchester” or even “escorts who talk too damn much in Manchester.” I really don’t know what search terms they may use but I will do all in my power for them to find me.” And so there you go.
