Delve into the archives and read up on the history and practices of everything surrounding the Escort Industry...
Ireland is a profitable and friendly country for escorts to work in.
For many years, ladies from all over the world have been travelling to Ireland to work as escorts, because of the very favourable conditions that exist for female escorts in Ireland.
Ireland was once dominated by escort agencies, but there are not so many escort agencies in Ireland now. The majority of escorts in Ireland are now independent escorts, many of them touring ladies.
Ireland is generally a very safe country, but that's not to say escorts can afford to adopt a careless attitude towards their own safety in Ireland. There are bad clients and other dangers in Ireland, just like anywhere else, so always take sensible precautions when working as an escort in Ireland, in the interest of maintaining your own safety, security and well being. Unfortunately anti-prostitution organisations have a strong influence in Ireland and this leads to some negative discrimination towards escorts.
The Republic of Ireland has seen massive economic growth in recent years. The initial boom years were 1996 - 2001 and this was when we first came to start hearing the expression 'Celtic Tiger' being used across the world to describe Ireland's phenomenal economic success. In this period disposable income soared to record levels enabling a huge rise in consumer spending. The global economic downturn of 2001 did slow things down for a couple of years, as you would expect, but, by 2003, the Irish economy was racing ahead again and economists were talking of the 'Celtic Tiger II'. All this has of course been great for the Irish escort business.
2008 did bring a global financial crisis and Ireland has not been untouched by this. However the sex industry in Ireland is as recession-proof as it gets. A recession will always leave some clients thinking more carefully about how they spend their money, and in response escorts may have to make sure their pricing is competitive, but the number of clients seeking escort services in Ireland and the number of escorts available in Ireland continues to grow!
Ten years ago the Irish escort business employed mainly Irish and UK females, but it is now very international, with ladies from lots of different countries working as escorts in Ireland, alongside Irish and UK ladies. This is a natural change that has occurred largely because of the great economic conditions in Ireland and the fact that nationals of many EU countries are now free to live and work in Ireland.
In some countries escorting been negatively impacted by an influx of foreign workers, forcing prices to drop. This hasn't happened in Ireland though, because Ireland is not flooded with cheap sex services like street prostitution, massage parlours, saunas and working flats. These types of services are rare or do not exist in Ireland at all, hence the Irish escort industry faces no real competition from these businesses.
Sexual health and safe sex information, advice and resources for escorts and escort service clients in Ireland...
Attention! We are not medically trained. The information on this site should not be construed as medical advice.
Most escorts are very safe sex conscious, making having sex with an escort arguably safer in general than having a one-night-stand with a 'regular' woman, but clients should not rely on their escort to take all the necessary precautions.
Before You Engage in Sex:
Both escort and client should be thoroughly clean. If either party has any piercings, cuts, sores or rashes these should be covered with a plaster (It is recommended that people who bite their nails wear surgical gloves for fingering activities, due to the risk of bleeding). Check for pubic lice if there is public hair (Most sex workers are shaven). Jewellery or other items of clothing with sharp edges should not be worn as they can cause injury or tear condoms.
Sexual Activities & the Risks:
Vaginal Sex - Using a condom will help to protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STI) during vaginal sex. Condoms containing Nonoxynol 9 should not be used by female sex workers or other women who have lots of vaginal sex. Vaginal sex without a condom is not safe, escorts offering it or clients requesting it should be AVOIDED!
Anal Sex - Using a condom and a water-based lubricant, such as KY Jelly, will help protect you against STI during anal sex. However, other lubricants, especially oil-based ones, are unsuitable. Specially toughened condoms designed for anal intercourse are available and may offer more protection. Condoms containing Nonoxynol 9 should not be used for anal sex. Anal sex without a condom is not safe, escorts offering it or clients requesting it should be AVOIDED!
Oral Sex - Condoms can dramatically reduce the risk of STI transmission during oral sex and a barrier, such as a dental dam, can give oral protection. Herpes type 1 or 2, causing cold sores around the mouth or genital sores, may be passed on through oral sex. The person giving oral sex may also be at risk from gonorrhoea and chlamydia, or syphilis on the tongue and lips. Hepatitis C is generally only contained in blood and so may only be transmitted if blood is present. HIV and Hepatitis B can pose a small risk for both the active and receptive partner. Both can occur when the active partner gets sexual fluid or blood into a cut, sore, or ulcer somewhere in their mouth or throat. The linings of the mouth and throat are resistant to viral infections such as HIV, so infection is unlikely. Transmission from an HIV positive active partner to an HIV negative receptive partner is uncommon, because HIV it is normally only present in saliva in very low levels. There is a bigger risk of transmission from bleeding wounds or gums in the HIV positive person's mouth or on their lips, which may transfer blood onto the other person's genitals, or into any cuts or sores they may have. Whether or not oral sex should ever be engaged in without protection is for escorts and escort clients to decide for themselves... Some do, some don't!
Rimming - Rimming involves oral contact around the anus. To reduce the chance of infection, good anal hygiene before sex and good oral hygiene after sex is vital. Using a barrier like a dental dam to prevent poo from getting into your mouth can help protect you from the possible risks, which are a range of intestinal parasites and Hepatitis A.
Sex Toys - The most important thing when using sex toys is to make sure they're clean beforehand. For added protection, condoms can be put over them. Condoms should be changed between insertions. The risks with sharing sex toys include bacterial infections and Hepatitis A, or, if there's blood present, Hepatitis B and C and HIV.
Watersports & Hardsports - If the person being pissed on has no unbroken skin, there is a relatively low risk of passing on any infection. Poo play is more of a risk, because poo contains organisms which can cause illness or infection. Poo doesn't usually contain HIV, but it can contain the hepatitis A virus. There's a chance of infection when poo comes into contact with broken skin or if it comes into contact with the mouth or eyes.

Regular Sexual Health Check Ups:
Escorts and escort clients should have regular sexual health checks at an STD / STI / GUM Clinic. Escorts will also often be offered Hepatitis jabs. You should be honest with the sexual health advisor at the GUM Clinic, i.e. tell them you are an escort or an escort client... Don't worry, they won't be shocked, they have heard it all before!
