If you are uncomfortable with the idea of a contract for your business, use a donation method. Remember that most states define prostitution as accepting money as compensation for sexual services delivered to another person. To avoid the compensation debacle altogether, ask for a contribution or donation for your personal services as an escort. Do not refer to the charge as a fee or cost.
How to accept money
As an escort, you will be accepting money for your time. The best way to accept a donation is to have a small table near your apartment door, if you are working from your own apartment. As your client enters, ask him or her to leave the money in an envelope on the table. Ask them, “Do you have an envelope for me? Just leave it on the table there, please!” At that point, suggest that they “freshen up” in the washroom. As he or she is in the washroom, quickly examine what has been left for you. In this fashion, you have deniability about the direct transfer of money for your services.A different situation arises if you are visiting a client in a hotel room or other location. Keep in mind that some clients will be very uncomfortable with going into the washroom and leaving an escort alone in their hotel room with their belongings. This is completely understandable, as you both are strangers. A strategy to avoid this awkward situation is to request the client to place the envelope in a location that’s right next to the washroom. As you ask them to enter the washroom, say, “Feel free to keep the door cracked open so you can hear me right here. I’ll be coming in 30 seconds; I just need to check something first.”
Familiarize yourself with the law
Read up on state law concerning prostitution and other related violations. Knowledge is power, and the more you know the better you can protect yourself from legal trouble. As an escort, you should clearly understand what prostitution means in your state.
