It’s Time To Change Attitudes In The UK
Escorts are now listed as skilled workers in New Zealand – and we say that it’s about time!
The law and escorting is a partnership that varies hugely across the world. In some countries, the practice of escorting is frowned upon by the authorities, and escorts are forced to work in dangerous conditions for fear of being prosecuted. In others, they can co-exist peacefully. This progressive attitude is most notable in New Zealand, where escorts are recognised as skilled workers. The way that New Zealanders view escorts is leading to a much better understanding of what they do, and women can carry out the job that they love without stigma or shame. So, could we learn something from this?
New Zealand is one of the most open minded countries in the world, and nowhere is that more clear to see than in their laws regarding escorting. An act passed in 2003 ensured that escorts could advertise their work freely, and be upfront about the services that they offer. The move to decriminalise escort agencies attracted worldwide attention, and the country’s escort laws are some of the most progressive in the world. Recently, it emerged that escorting was included on the skilled employment list on the country’s immigration website.
Escorting being classified as a skilled profession has been really beneficial for the industry. People recognise that there is far more to the job that meets the eye, and that to make it to the top takes years of dedication and experience. It’s also helped to reduce the stigma that often comes with adult work too. In the years before escorting was decriminalised and seen as a valid career choice, women would often be loath to admit what they did for a living for fear of being shunned by family and friends. We recognise that our own high class escorts are tremendously skilled, and love the New Zealand government’s progressive attitude.
Safer working conditions
Escorting being seen as a valid, skilled career also means that escorts are able to work safely. Before, they would have to carry out their work in secret, often in less than salubrious locations. This would put them at the risk of mistreatment by clients, and they in turn could not report those incidents to the police for fear of being prosecuted themselves. Now, it’s a much more open industry, and escorts can work in the open and in the safest possible conditions.
It’s time we got more progressive
What can we learn from New Zealand’s attitude to escorting? Well, we should be a lot more tolerant and appreciative of escorts here in the UK. An escort has taken years to hone her skills, just like any other professional – and she should be able to be proud of that fact. There’s nothing seedy or immoral about the service that our girls provide for their clients. They spread genuine joy and happiness, and our clients come back time and time again as a result. A wider appreciation of escorting would encourage more girls to join the profession.

So, will the UK ever adopt similar laws to New Zealand? Only time will tell on that front – but in the meantime we should all give escorts the respect that they deserve. Escorts work in the industry because they love making people happy, and it’s time that we repaid some of that affection. So next time you book an escort, don’t be afraid to tell her how amazing she is at her job!
