    Default When is independent not independent ?

    I would like to pose a question, is there a fine line between independent and agency ?
    Now before I get attacked, let me elaborate.

    My understanding of an Independent escort is one that works solely for themselves.

    Likewise my understanding of an Agency Escort is one that works under an umbrella of what is commonly know as a "pimp". A boss so to speak who takes a share of fees charged.

    This is the black and white scenario, but is there a grey area ?

    Is there an in-between ?
    I know of Independent escorts who use each others Apartments or apartments in common.
    So as a collective are they in a sense an agency of sorts ?

    Likewise I'm sure there are groups of escorts who have come to Ireland as a group and share Apts, phones ect. Without any third party intervention.
    So if a group of escorts work together are they an agency ?

    Now I'm not trying to accuse anyone of anything, I'm just questioning myself really, these are just some thoughts that have been on my mind of late. I'm just looking for a bit of clarity I suppose.

    Excellent question Dave, I would assume that the criteria was that no third party was involved, so if a group of girls got together to share various appts etc, they would still be working independantly
    Come in she said "I'll give you shelter from the storm "

    An Independent escort does not pay a percentage of her income to anyone apart from paying the standard running costs of the business. Agency escorts are 'managed' and have to hand over a percentage of each appointment booked through the agency.

    I suppose it is possible to be an Independent and work 'part-time' for an agency to boost income, and I have heard of situations like that in the UK.

    Jeepers Dave! What have you been smoking?

    You certainly don't sound like you're trying to accuse anyone. Instead you sound like a lawyer trying to legislate the escorting industry!

    And like anything to do with the law it, just gives me a headache!

    Please summarise your findings when complete. I couldn't possibly keep track of all the various permutations involved!

    Simple I guess - as long as the escort doesnt have a boss means she is independent.

    I would call escorts that swap flats etc more of a co operative, one does not tell the other when to be at work so they cant be called even a vauge variation of an agency. Independent to me can be summed up as simply as they wake up in the morning and if they fancy taking the day off and no one to answer to then they are truly Independent in every sense of the word.
