A Sydney sex worker has revealed everything there is to know about the industry in a ‘Ask Me Anything’ thread on Reddit.
The 25-year-old, who goes by the name ‘growlergirl’ on the site, claims she began her career working in a “high-profile brothel” and now she charges $550 an hour for the pleasure of her time.
The young woman said she takes two to three bookings per week, netting a whopping $3K – and in the no-holds-barred Q&A she lays everything about her life on the table.
What’s her clientele?
“Mostly white-collar type professions, more Caucasian, Indian and Asian than other races, and mostly in the 40-60 age group,” she said.
“I'm happy with this, because these guys are well mannered and really generous. I have a no-Irish policy, for all of the reasons you'd imagine.”
How many men has she slept with?
“Between 1100 and 1200."
The weirdest thing a customer has ever requested
“I used to have a spiral staircase in my Perth apartment. One client used to like sitting underneath it and ***k off while I walked up and down the staircase. He had an upskirt fetish,” she said.
“I've had phone calls from dudes requesting incest role-play but I always turn these down- I don't have it in me to act it out. I have a few brothers.”
What does she charge per hour
“$550 for the first hour, $1050 for the next then $300 for each additional hour,” she answered.
“$2500 for 12 hours and $5000 for 48 hours.
“I want to encourage clients to book me for 3+ hours. My 12 hour rates are cheap compared to other escorts.”
What does she look like?
"The most common comment I get on my physical appearance is more 'cute' than anything. I have a more girl-next-door type of look,” she said.
“I'm no knock-out model, but I'm pretty and I have a good body and really soft skin. I get over 90% matches on Tinder.”
How does she stay safe?
“We have our means and that is all ye need to know.”
Has she ever had a customer who was physically off-putting?
"The last client who asked me if I would ever go out with him was not physically attractive at all, but not because he lost the genetic lottery,” she said.
“His hair was greasy. He had poor complexion. He told me he was on this prescription cream for it but not much else. I asked him if he ever exercised and he said no. I didn’t bother asking him about his diet.”
How did she get into the industry?
“I got into the industry for the money, pure and simple,” she said.
“I suppose the part of my personality that prompted me to make that decision is the fact that I've always been an oddball. So it wasn't as big a deal for me to go into an oddball profession.
“Contrary to my previous beliefs, sex work has been the best thing for my mental health. I always had enough savings to keep a roof over my head and food in my fridge.”
The worst client she’s ever had
“The worst was George. As he was driving me back to my place in his car, he answered a phone call from his wife and put her on loudspeaker so he could talk and drive. I was in the passenger seat listening to everything.”
What she won’t do
Water sports/mud sports
Most fetish type stuff
Two dudes at once
Long bookings out of the city
Does her family know what she does?
“My mum, Doctor, psychiatrist, best friends, former boyfriends,” she said.
‘I'm afraid of my Dad and brothers finding out. I broke down and confessed everything to my parents about having been a sex worker for years about 2 years ago while I was on hiatus.
“Only my Mum knows I've returned. She doesn't want me to tell him because otherwise she'd 'never hear the end of it.' But I think deep down he knows.”
