TV shows make it easier to understand the different worlds. Escort industry is among these worlds that need to be fully understood before judging the people working in it and that why TV shows are important because they have the ability to explore the worlds. 2 TV shows represent the world of female escorts; secret diary of a call girl and the girlfriend experience.
• Secret diary of a call girl:
The show is based on the diary of the anonymous sex worker know as Belle de Jour.
“Escort, hooker, prostitute. I don’t care what you call me. I love sex and money. And I love to suck a big fat cock, get orgasm and fill myself. This is life. And I’m living it.” That is the opening scene.
The show reveals how this industry works. At first, Belle worked through an agency, and then she worked independently. The show discusses the life of Belle, her family issues, her romantic relationships and her relationship with her friend and boyfriend Ben. The show is like the ultimate guide for female escorts as Belle sets some rules for female escorts.
– Rule 1: keep life and job separate. Separate phones, bedrooms and sides of the closet.
– Rule 2: get the money first.
– Rule 3: Safety.
– Rule 4: figure out what the client wants and give it to him.
The show is full of sex scenes with different clients so it explores the world of the clients too.
The cast is Billie Piper as Belle de Jour, Iddo Goldberg as Ben, Cherie Lunghi as Stephanie and Ashley Madekwe as Bambi. Its rate is 7.4 on IMDB. The show is so funny, Billie is amazing but the end will break your heart.
• The girlfriend experience:
This show is dark, deep and very interesting. It is an anthology TV series based on Steven Soderbergh’s novel “The Girlfriend Experience”. It is created, written and directed by Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz. The cast of the first season consists of Riley Keough as Christine Reade and Paul Sparks as David Tellis.
The show reveals the dangers of the escort job. Christine is a law student who works in a major corporation and as an escort. She works independently and suffers from blackmailing. Some scenes are so deep and dark to show the brutal world that female escorts live in when they have terrible clients.
Riley played the escort role well. Unlike Billie in secret diary of a call girl, she is not funny. She is pragmatic who wants to take control over her life. With the progression of the show, the character of Christine becomes more pragmatic; she deals with her blackmailing issues professionally and we are waiting for the second season in the upcoming days.
Its rate is 7.3 on IMDB and produced by the famous network Starz.
Riley was nominated for a Golden Globe for her outstanding performance in a limited series or motion picture made for television; that gives you an idea about how spectacular she is in the show.
Any female escort who wants to explore the world of escorting should watch these two shows before starting her career.
