Companion agencies are those companies that provide companions for customers usually for intimate services. The agency usually arranges the meeting of the companion and the customer, and they hold it at the customer’s place or a hotel (termed as outcall), or at the companion’s place (called the incall). There are also companions that some agencies would provide to clients for longer period of time, like when the client would go on business or holiday. Fees for booking and dispatch are paid to the companion agency, and if the client has other needs of services aside from those provided by the companion agency, the client has to negotiate this with the companion.
There is a law that prohibits payment of intimate services or arranging contract for intimate activities, and because of this, companion agencies would claim that they are sending these persons to provide conversational or social services to clients rather than other intimate needs. You will find advertisements of companion agencies to be carefully stated avoiding offering of intimate services. Since the business of companion agency is viewed by local authorities and political powers as the root of other intimate activities, they are keeping close monitoring of this business. Sometimes, the government is also in turn viewed as being hypocrite because they tax these companion agencies even if they do not lead to other intimate business.
It is through magazines or newspapers that these companion agencies are able to recruit persons to work as their employees. A list of companions, with different age and appearances, are usually kept by these companion agencies to cater to the varying needs of a customer. There are different types of companions that companion agencies would provide, from male to male, or male to female or female to female, although some agencies also would only provide one gender.
It is common for companions to get into the business by way of friends and by reading on the magazines and newspapers. Once the person is hired to be a companion, a photograph of the person should be submitted and is posted on the website of the agency or circulated among clients for promotion.
A photo gallery in the website of a large companion agency is usually maintained. A customer will contact the agency and will inform them of the type of companion he or she prefers, and from there, the agency will recommend the potential companion that fits the customer’s specification.
The agency then gets the customer’s contact information and calls the companion, and to protect the identity of the companion, it is the agency who usually arranges the appointment.
