TheDogz noted that the Scootergals’ spokesperson shared a name with a well set up private “escort and companion” servicing the ACT at

Scootergal assures us that the Tess Ryans are not one and the same but the website remains an illuminating browse with some insights into another world (for many of us).

For example every page is emblazoned with:

    This site is best viewed with Firefox or anything other than Internet Explorer

I can only wish we could be so exclusive here.

As far as I can see the pictures are at most M rated, more likely PG.

So what other quotes struck you as insightful?

I would just like one question answered: would you honestly be happy with a woman you love being a prositute? For example your daughter, wife, mother or sister?

If the answer is no, then its a bit hypocritical to carry on like there’s nothing wrong with it isnt it?

Netcraft reports that her site is in fact hosted on Linux.

Thanks. Yes, it IS wrong, but just occassionally and when obviously a joke, still kinda funny…

I don’t want to see women degrading themself and flaunting their bodies for sale, and I don’t come here to see that.

Then don’t leave the kitchen…

That was wrong and you should feel bad. But I laughed.

She has a profesional site, knows what she wants and how to be treated, she could be “comfortable” in her line of work.
Would be interesting to hear her story.

Let’s not jump the shark, and leave off the sexist ‘humour’ here shall we?

You’re not wrong!

ROFLMAO! The people that take this stuff too seriously truly do themselves no favours.

LOL. And is that bloody shirt ironed yet??

Mael & Jazz : I don’t think the interview would be necessary. Maybe just a cigarette…afterwards!

Yes I am female and I am engaged in the discussion.

Unlike sepi, I find it quite interesting and more than a little bit entertaining.

My motto is “always be aware and informed” so I read and listen and learn (and quite often on this site, I laugh)

It is sexist as it assumes that all readers of this site are male.quote]

I see the females are engaged in this discussion…

This goes back to our discussion we had about television – if you don’t like it, turn it off or don’t look at it. No one is forcing you to read every single thread.

You can’t please the whole world can ya?!

I am all for sex workers and the invaluable service they provide in the Community, however, Tess sounds a bit superior to me. Which I personally find amusing given her chosen way of life.

I think she could take a leaf out of scootergals book and get a sense of humour. And perhaps take her own towel with her to appointments!

If the client doesn’t have a wife/girlfriend to fix him up in the sex department, could Tess really be sure about the cleanliness of his laundry???

And if he does have a wife, is it not bad enough that her husband is utilising Tess’s services while his wife is away and then she has to come home and wash the dirty towels! Yukky.

After reading Tess’s site, I for one will be paying closer attention to what is happening in my dirty clothes basket;)

Googling about, I found a statement from the young lady herself on an adult services review site. I deleted a couple of the more graphic lines. What’s left isn’t that graphic but obvious warnings to those who haven’t cottoned on to what the thread is about.

Seems to have a good work ethic and a srtaight forward gal. ; ) .

“An interesting post, and an observant one, and I’ll add my bit here which may help to clarify things further.

I’m not an actress.

Some ladies are, and that’s fantastic, I admire their abilities, and I’ve done doubles with some truly great actresses in the past, but I just don’t have it in me, I can’t fake it.

When someone comes to see me, before I have spent any time with them, there is an attitude that I take with me to the encounter. One person I know compared clients coming to see workers as like going to the hairdresser or the dayspa. It’s an indulgence, it’s something that’s relaxing and you expect to be the center of attention.

It’s a luxury.

I appreciate that when someone comes to see me, it’s a lot of money, if I were spending that amount of money on myself, I’d want it to be really nice, I’d want to walk away thinking about the experience, not the price.

I want the people who visit me to feel pampered, to feel indulged, but I want them to also feel that they’ve escaped from everyday life for a little while. I love that people can come to see me and feel happy when they leave. That I can improve their day and make things just that much nicer for them. That’s an amazing and wonderful thing, and I doubt many other jobs let you do that.

In short, I care very deeply about them and their experience with me.

Sometimes people behave in ways that make me cease to care like that.

It’s not a conscious decision, but those warm and caring feelings can evaporate in the face of some behaviours, which I tend to classify as “ill-mannered”.

I don’t deliberately change my service at those times, but as I said earlier, I’m not an actress, and try as I might, those people will surely pick up on my changed feelings when they have been ill-mannered. I can still do the service, but my heart isn’t involved in it anymore.

Most of what I say will be completely obvious to the people who read it, but I’m still very surprised that these things seem to happen. Obviously not all the people who visit me are ill-mannered, if they were I wouldn’t be doing this because I wouldn’t be having fun anymore.


Your time doesn’t start until you come back from your shower, and the soap is as scent-free as I can find, so there’s really no excuse for coming back from the shower still smelly.

Dont be pushy.

I don’t kiss. I realise that is important for some people, but I suggest that you book another lady who is comfortable providing that.

Waiting until my eyes are closed and then diving in to kiss me, or kssing every centimetre of my face except my lips, is not respecting my boundaries. I won’t suddenly be overcome with lust and give in to what you want. I promise. However, I will lose respect for you and think that you’re a tiresome fool.

The same goes for any of the things I’ve told you I don’t provide in my service. Just don’t do them.

Don’t be nosy.

If the conversation needs a starter, I might ask if you’re local, or talk about the weather, or ask what books you may have read or something like that. I really enjoy that people open up when they come to see me in a way that people usually don’t when in other situations, however I’m aware that there are areas you may not feel comfortable discussing, so I wait until you bring them up first, if at all. So I won’t be asking what your job is (although most people do mention it), or about your wife. For example, I may ask if you have pets, but I won’t ask if you have children.

I don’t mind people asking me questions, we all talk about what we know and do, but if you ask me something I’m not comfortable discussing, and I change the subject or indicate I’d prefer not to talk about it, don’t nag me. Don’t say over and over and over: “Go on, tell me, I want to know.”

It won’t make me tell you, it will me make me uncomfortable. Would you do that with someone you’d met half an hour ago in a social situation? No? Then please don’t do it to me.

Don’t be offended when I tell you that we’re close to time.

If your time is running out, I will warn you. This is because I’d prefer that you know, and we can get to where we are going before your time runs out. I think it would be impolite of me not to warn you, because then we would just have to stop and you’d leave without finishing.

If you think you’d like to stay longer, that’s fine, but you really can’t stay another half an hour for free. It’s a time-based service, and even if I enjoy your company, I’m running a business.

These are some of the really simple, obvious things that come up sometimes, and that make me feel less warm toward the person I’m seeing.

I suppose it’s the price I pay for still caring about the people I see, that I’m also still vulnerable to those situations that may upset me to a greater or lesser extent. I’m not a hard person, I react to people depending on how they treat me, and I don’t have the gift of pretending I don’t. I like people to be polite, and friendly, and interact with me as though I’m a person.

I provide company with a real woman, with real feelings, and real reactions.

To all those guys I’ve seen who are fun, interesting, and polite, thank you for a lovely time.

For the rest….. have a think about it.

@scootergal browsersnob = browser snob. She doesn’t like Internet Explorer.

All I’m going to say on the subject of prostitution is for a trade that has been around as long as baking bread, there are a few people hanging on this thread on mighty high horses.

For the record, If you’ve got a lazy $600-odd, there are definately worse things you could spend your money one.
