Escort Support and Advice
The organisation is led by people with personal experience of working in the industry, who can say what it's like on a day to day basis, and know firsthand the ways in which social attitudes and the law impact on our rights, safety and well-being. We're a grassroots organisation, founded by a migrant who worked in a range of jobs in the sex industry. The organisation brings together people from all sectors - people who sell sexual contact or BDSM services, people who work for or run agencies, websites or brothels, strippers, erotic dancers and glamour models, porn actors and film makers, phone sex workers and web cam models; men, women and transgender people; straight, gay and bisexual.
Support and Advocacy organisation based in UK run by and for male escorts (of all ages, sexualities). Practical advice, support and campaigning. Membership, peer-support, signposting and events.
The UK National Escorts Association has been established to promote industry standards within the escorts and escort agency sector. Policing is a strong word but with so many fake escort agencies setting up we want to make sure the real escort agencies shine through.
Advice for Male Escorts
Providing an escort service at the end of the day is taking on a role in the world of work. Approach it like you would with any other profession, take it seriously and keep a professional attitude at all times.
Clients expect you to respect their privacy — what goes on when you meet them should stay between you and them unless absolutely necessary. Check & Report Suspicious or worried about an individual?

You'd be surprised how gossiping can get about. We can never assume another persons personal circumstances, home, work or family situation — so treat these areas of their life out of conversations with clients and try not to pry. Ironically, there are details of a client's life they will often divulge to escorts that nobody else knows — because you are a stranger and not connected to your life. Clients expect discretion so be sure to uphold that value.
