TOURING ESCORT SERIES: An interview with touring escort Elle Thorn
Welcome to the Scarlet Blue Touring Escort Series. Dedicated to our touring escorts, this series of our guest blog provides an exciting and informative glimpse into the world of an independent touring escort.
Please welcome Melbourne based touring escort Elle Thorn.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A TOURING ESCORT?
For me it's exploring whichever city I happen to be in. I have a serious travel addiction so being a touring escort enables me to go on adventures and have varied experiences, which keeps life exciting! I always set aside time to go see the city, especially restaurants and museums. If you ever see me saying I'm fully booked on tour, I'm probably just stuffing my face with food!
WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES?
The biggest challenge for me is eating healthy whilst I'm touring. Touring can be exhausting. So by the end of the day you have this little voice in your head telling you to treat yourself and eat the entire box of chocolates your client got you. Which is fine unless you're touring all the time and all of a sudden you've gained 5kg's!
WHAT ARE YOUR STRATEGIES TO BE COST EFFECTIVE WHILST TOURING?
Most girls I'm friends with book their flights and accommodation well in advance, I like to keep my life flexible so I very much don't do that much to my detriment. If you're legally able to I recommend booking an apartment to work from so you can cook your own meals. If Lola reads this she will die as I'm notorious for spending $50+ on uber eats every night just for myself. In fact the more I think about this question the more I realise I am not the one to ask about saving money. I'm a little self indulgent let's just put it like that!
WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT TIPS YOU CAN OFFER OTHER TOURING ESCORTS?
Take some time off to enjoy the city you're in. If you push yourself too hard you're going to end up resenting your choice to travel and then who knows what wonderful experiences you'll miss out on. I like to take things easy. I don't tend to see more than 3 clients a day as I value my sanity and believe that you need to have a varied and active life to sustain such.
DO YOU EXERCISE WHILST ON TOUR? HOW DO YOU KEEP FIT?
I absolutely love to walk. I'm very into music and will get lost in a daydream as I walk, probably getting lost physically too! Thank god for google maps. If my hotel has a gym I'd probably hit it up but I wouldn't push myself too hard as touring can be physically tough on your body. If you're doing it right sex should burn a fair few calories anyway. Probably not as much as the box of chocolates I polished off the night before but still, it's something!
WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT FROM ALL OF YOUR TOURS?
Oh sweet lord there's been so many. I've indulged in some pretty crazy experiences whilst touring internationally. There's been a few moments where you kind of have to step back and be like woah is this really happening? You're in some private room in a Michelin starred restaurant with a billionaire one day and then the next you're back in Australia getting $10 BYO dumplings because all your friends are broke. I often have these kind of 'I need to pinch myself' moments to check it's really happening to me.
I would have to say my most memorable experience was the time Lola and I decided to stay at Marina Bay Sands one night in Singapore. We got a suite and spent close to $1000 at their rooftop pool bar. Although things got a little less memorable by the third bottle of champagne!
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF COMING HOME?
My wonderful amazing friends. I am so so lucky to be surrounded by awesome people in Melbourne. They know what I do and are incredibly supportive of my choice to do so. I miss them so much when I'm away. When I come back from tour I tend to spend 2/3 days just surrounded by friends. In fact most of the time they're practically there at my flat waiting for me to come home. Coming out as an escort to my close friends has been extremely liberating and bought us even closer. If anyone reading this is wondering whether to or not I would highly recommend it. Anyone who doesn't support you is not worth investing your time into anyway. Tell them to sashay away!
