I have several friends who are top rated providers and they are serious business women who run their business like any Fortune 500 company. They are concerned about Marketing, Advertising, Expenses, Customer Relations, Pricing and the all important P&L. One friend of mine can go to her online data base and pull up a spreadsheet in minutes that will give her a breakdown of her last tour trip to see what her expenses and income were and what it the most profitable appointment length.
Remember that this is a business and the smart ladies treat as such....and for the most part they are very successful at it. Now I also know some providers that keep their money in a shoe box and could not produce a receipt for an expense if her life depended on it and they generally struggle to make ends meet.....But make no mistake that the vast majority of the women that I have met in this business are very savy business women and entrepreneurs!!!
First of all I agree that an independent escort is definitely an entrepreneur.
As for all the people complaining about the "hobbyist" and "provider" terms, sure everyone is entitled to their opinions and there are a lot of other names they can be called, but these terms actually do fit very well.
From the Oxford dictionary:
Provider: "A person or thing that provides something"
Hobbyist: "A person who pursues a particular hobby."
Hobby: "An activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure."
who pay to fk women. Provider is also a dumb word to describe hookers...too clinical don't ya think? I play tennis so I am tennis player, not a hobbyist. I drink socially so I am a social drinker, not a hobbyist. It just makes zero sense and from the first time I heard the word, I literally laughed out loud. "Whoreist" makes much more sense.
The third group of definitions was sort of what I expected:
1. A female of loose virtue and even looser undergarments, a woman who is 'easy to get', a lady who uses sex as a means of earning legal tender. See Prostitute, loose woman, and strumpet.
(Derived from def. I, 'a toy horse', she can be 'ridden' by all)
"And Yung Matthais riden oot to Banbery Cross atop his Hobbi-Horse sted..."
John of Ingelwit, 1503
"Almost every person hath some Hobby Horse or other wherein he prides himself"
Sir Matthew Hale-1676
"Nay, if you come to that, Sir, have not the wisest of men in all ages, not excepting Solomon himself- have they not their Hobby Horses..."
Definition 5 was new to me and "takes the cake" in my book:
when you stick panties in a girls ass (like a horse tail) and use another pair around her neck like reins (for choking) and then go at it doggy style.
Much better than that horrible term, "Trick". A trick is not even human, it s a deception. I really dislike the term "Trick". "Hobbyist", and "client" aren't very descriptive and have meanings outside this game. "Whore monger" is a better for a pimp than the customer as a monger sells stuff, not buys it. "John" is a real name and has other meanings like a toilet thus not a good fit but well used. "Punter" isn't that hot ether as I don't "punt" anything when I pay for sex. "Whorist" is the best term going in. Any term is better than "trick", even "fat f*ck that pays" is better.
*I am not complaining about your spelling. I can't spell worth shit, and your posts use much better spelling and grammar than mine. I was just pointing out the correct spelling as it is often misspelled on the boards.
When you have the hobby of stamp collecting, you call yourself a stamp collector NOT a hobbyist...same with any other "hobby" your partake in. It does not put the emphasis on paying for sex like "whorist" does. It is too broad of a term to be defined in this aspect, and makes zero sense to me. If that's the case, every single thing you do makes you a hobbyist, not just p4p. "Provider" is a term widely known in Healthcare to describe the physician or insurance company, but hookers? LOL.
