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 Lola Hunt.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A TOURING ESCORT?
Not to sound totally cliche but the travel is fairly high up there. I think more than anything the stories you take away from the trips. At the end of the day all you've got is a big old ball of experiences so even the tours which totally flopped, I can still look back and know they were worth it.
WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES?
Loneliness. It can be super isolating sometimes and it's easy to slip into work mode without taking breaks to keep you semi-human. Oh and totally bv :P (It's gross but it so happens.)
WHAT ARE YOUR STRATEGIES TO BE COST EFFECTIVE WHILST TOURING?
Elle and I jumped on the frequent flyer thang a while back which is totally worth it if you're going to be flying every 2 weeks or so. I'd love to say we're totally sensible when it comes to food - but hey we're not and if the tours going well...you won't find us eating at home much. We do tend to stay in airbnb's more than hotels. Upside is that it's cheaper, downside is Airbnb are conservative assholes when it comes to sex work. So keep it discreet if you want to keep your account.
WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT TIPS YOU CAN OFFER OTHER TOURING ESCORTS?
- Try and team up if you can. Life's more fun with cool people around.
- Take freaking breaks. The pene will always be there, your good health, not so much.
- If you're heading international make sure you clamp down on the security of your real identity. Overseas the laws are different and if it's not a disgruntled client or a neighbour, it's pretty common for a local girl to report you to immigration. It sucks but people are petty and rather shit sometimes.
- Stay out of the drama. Drama seems to follow this industry around. It's just totally not worth being involved.
DO YOU EXERCISE WHILST ON TOUR? HOW DO YOU KEEP FIT?
I try my best to exercise whilst on tour. I find that it is hard to make the time sometimes but it's definitely worth taking a stroll at the very least.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT FROM ALL OF YOUR TOURS?
I was actually asked this on the plane back to Melbourne today! I'll keep this one brief but possibly when Elle and I decided to play strip poke with an international poker player - I mean, we didn't do amazingly but gosh darn it we put up a fight.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF COMING HOME?
Melbourne's weather. I joke, I joke. Getting seriously stuck into some red wine, crime dramas and terrible terrible games with friends does make it feel quite nice though.
