What do women think of when they hear the term escort?
Well, it’s not quite what they imagine it to be, but a lot of people have an opinion on the subject.
And there are a number of reasons why.
“I don’t think anyone should be in a position to judge what women want,” says Laura DeCoster, an escort and escort business owner who works in Spokane, Washington.
“The reality is women can choose to not be with someone they know, but what you want to do is make sure that your woman knows that she has a place where she can go and be safe.”
What do women do?
According to a 2013 survey conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), almost one in four transgender women (25.6%) reported they’d had an unwanted sexual contact with a male escort or an escort service provider in the past year.
And the survey also found that one in five transgender women reported that they were at risk of having an unwanted physical or sexual encounter with a man in the previous 12 months.
“Women can choose whether or not to have sex with someone, and the answer is that they shouldn’t,” says DeCosters mother, Susan.
“If I knew that my daughter was going to have an unwanted encounter with an adult male who was using her, I would never allow it to happen.
I would not let that happen.”
But what do trans women want?
The idea that transgender women are looking for escorts and escorts are looking to sell their services is widely held by many trans women who say it’s a myth.
“Most trans people are not looking for sex,” says Lauren, a trans woman who lives in Denver, Colorado.
“Trans people want to go somewhere, but they don’t want to be asked if they want to take a bath or have a drink or something like that.
They don’t feel like it’s sexual to them to go out with somebody they know.”
“I want to know if my trans friend is doing it and, if not, how will I know?” says Tamara, who is trans and lives in California.
“When people say they want a ‘safe’ place to go, that’s when they’re really talking about being in a place of trust.
A place where they don,t have to tell you if you’re going to take the time to be comfortable.
A safe place where you can be yourself.”
‘My safety is a matter of the individual’ What are the risks of sex with a trans person?
Trans women are frequently referred to as the “third gender” or the “second gender”, because they experience gender identity disorders.
According to the American Psychiatric Association, trans people experience a spectrum of health issues, including high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
They also have a higher risk of sexually transmitted infections.
In 2013, the US Department of Health and Human Services estimated that trans people have a rate of sexual assault of approximately 20 per 1,000 women, while a study in the Journal of Traumatic Stress found that a trans youth who is sexually assaulted in the US has a suicide risk of 23 per 1
