Some of these tips will mostly be self-explanatory and should be applied in most countries that you hire a sex worker. However, a few of these are specific to Amsterdam:
Find a Reputable Site – You can find some recommendations about which sites to use in our city guides but always choose a site that has a lot of regular postings and one where the escorts are charged to list their services. Classified ads are free to post and, because they have little or no authentication system, are notorious for being used for scams.
Choose a Verified Escort – Where possible, select Amsterdam escorts whose photos and details have been authenticated.
Check the Escort – It is worth doing a Google search on the name and telephone number of any escort you book with. Classified sites, in particular, can yield results on a mobile number with numerous other women listed alongside it. This could indicate the services of a pimp or a possible ‘bait and switch’ scam. At very least, you may find reviews on punter forums about the services of the escort you are considering.
Fix a Plan –When you make contact with the agency or escort, decide on where you will meet. Some escorts provide in-call services as well as outcall.
Decide on a Budget – Have a fixed budget in mind and agree any ‘extras’ up front. This means you can have the right money ready and only take this with you (in-call) or have this out (outcall).
Trust Your Instincts – If you are meeting an escort at a different location then be aware of your surroundings and take extra care about any potential dangers. If it doesn’t feel right, then be prepared to bail on the whole thing. Whilst most in-call escort services are perfectly safe, it pays to be on your guard. This doesn’t always relate to the danger you might be in but also the circumstances and age of the escort you meet. If you suspect an escort is underage or being coerced then you should abandon your meeting.
Stow Personal Belongings – Whether you are arranging in outcall service to your hotel or meeting an escort at her premises, do not have too many personal belongings out. Remove your watch and any jewellery and leave these in the hotel safe. Have only the cash you are paying her on hand. It is surprisingly common to find that things go missing, usually whilst you are taking a shower.
Be Discreet – Most escorts prefer to use codewords and lingo to discuss money so be prepared to call her fee a donation or a ‘tip’.
Use Protection – HIV rates in India are high and you should always use a condom when having sex with a prostitute, no matter how much you are paying for her services.
Don’t Be Drunk – Being intoxicated can cloud your judgment and leave you vulnerable to exploitation. It could also hamper your experience in the sack so don’t book an escort if you are drunk.
End the Experience – Once your time is over, end the session as quickly as possible; extra time will cost you and can provide an ideal opportunity for theft.
