How to become an escort in 2022
If you've reached this blog chances are you've almost made your mind up and or have done a little research so I'll simplify the first recommendation.
Sit with your decision for a little, consider possible implications or complications of escorting in other areas of your life. Unfortunately the sex industry carries stigma and difficulties that other industries do not.
Escorting can be a very liberating profession, offering more free time than other industries, more flexibility and more control.
There are many factors to consider! We have new advertiser information here and also advertiser FAQs here. You must consider your privacy, create an escort name, buy a phone and create an email. Be aware that technology can track you quite easily, you do not want your escort details linked to your personal details.
We also recommend reading our article here on 'becoming a private escort' written by Loretta Leigh, a successful Australian escort (now retired) sharing her wisdom and knowledge with us.
Read up on Australian sex work Law, as it is State legislated you must be up to date with any Law and regulation that may affect you. we have an abundance of information on the platform to help you. Our resources and link page here lists State organisations and simplified regulations. Our article here on Sex work Law will also help.
Methods of working
Becoming an escort means considering the type of escorting you'd like to do. Private/ independent escorting or working for an escort agency. Independent working basically means you work for yourself, you manage your phone, ads and everything else.
Work for an agency means you would work for a business who manages your escorting work for you. Agencies take a percentage of your income as their fee.
Dakota Dice allows only independent escorts to advertise on our platform.

You are the product
Becoming an escort means you are the product. You receive payment for your time, and an experience. The fun (hard) part begins; choosing your escort name! Try to choose a name that is easily spelt so clients can easily find your information, and so your URL is easy to type. Try not to exactly replicate another escorts name; it is certainly worth doing a little check to make your name unique.
You must decide on the services you'd like to offer (GFE or PSE); a list of escort abbreviations are here. Create boundaries that are comfortable for you, whether that be separating some services from work v your personal life; having a set work schedule; not checking your work phone while at home; there a lot of small acts that create calm between the two.
You must decide on your rates, working hours, payment method, deposit method and any additional information.

After establishing all of the above, you are ready to build your profile. Simply create a new user account here on Dakota Dice and follow the prompts.
