choosing an agency - advice for new sex workers
Updated: Apr 12
Before joining an agency, it’s important to do your research.
Unfortunately, not every agency has an escort's best interests at heart, which is why you should do your research, learn your rights and weigh up your options first.
With that in mind, we’ve come up with a few things to look out for when choosing an agency.
Armed with this information, you’ll have the right tools to help you make an informed decision about what’s right for you.
If in doubt, contact NZPC on 09-366 6106 for advice or visit their website at https://www.nzpc.org.nz/.
They’re a friendly and confidential organization that supports and advocates for the rights of sex workers, while providing essential resources to those within the industry.
First consider, is this truly the industry you want to join?
Yes, it can be rewarding in so many ways but it’s also hard work both mentally and physically, so make sure this is a decision that you’ve seriously considered.
You should never join an agency on the spot and any reputable agency will not expect you to do so.
An initial interview should explain everything about the job, the agency, and what’s expected from you as a contractor.
IN PARTICULAR, THESE THINGS SHOULD BE DISCUSSED:
Safe sex practices
A frank discussion regarding any set services that they expect you to perform as part of the job, for example kissing, oral sex, intercourse etc
They may ask to see a valid form of ID to confirm you’re of legal age to work
Don’t be afraid to ask questions about anything that concerns you i.e. how they would deal with a difficult client or what security measures do they have in place etc.
That way you can get an understanding of how they handle certain situations, especially ones that relate to your health and safety.
Working in a comfortable, safe and supportive environment is so important in this industry. Unfortunately not all agencies provide this type of atmosphere, with expectations of long hours or a competitive environment that can pit ladies against each other.
Not all agencies will offer you a job during the interview.
Here at The Doll House, we prefer that you take some time after the interview to consider everything we’ve discussed, without any pressure to make a decision immediately.
Beware of any agency that puts pressure on you to sign up on the spot, particularly if you’re new to the sex industry.
A reputable agency will give you a fair payout, meaning the lady takes home more of the rate than the house.
Unfortunately some agencies take a majority of the rate which should never be the case,.
The split should always favour the lady.
Your pay should also always be given to you at the end of each shift, not the next shift you work or the end of the week.
A reputable agency will allow you to keep all tips and all money you receive from any extra services you perform.
Any good agency will also allow you to choose which extras (if any) you wish to perform, and they should never take a cut of this money. You should never feel forced to perform any service that you're not comfortable with.
When searching for places to work, check out their reviews from clients and/or ladies that work there. A lot of sex workers are on Twitter or Instagram and would be happy to give you some advice if you flick them a message. Otherwise, you can see what clients have to say on the escort site Adult Forum. Again, don’t forget that you can call NZPC for insight. They’re there to help you.
