Escort Safety: How we Keep Our Clients and Girls Safe27 June 2023
The safety of our escorts and clients is of the upmost importance to us. London Deluxe cares about the physical and mental well being of our girls and customers and goes to extra mile to offer safety support and advice. We want everyone to know when they use our services, they are not breaking any laws and they have no worries about the calibre of London escorts they are meeting.
So lets begin.
Is Escorting Legal in the UK?
We are often asked by potential new clients who have never booked an escort before "is escorting legal in the UK".
Escorting and the exchange of sexual services for money is legal in the UK. In Northern Ireland, the law is different because it is illegal to pay for sex.
Under the Sexual Offences Act 2003, there is a list of illegal activities that are associated with sex work
- Street Prostitution - Trying to acquire clients in a public place.
- Forcing or threatening a sex worker into offering services.
- Owner/managing a brothel - A brothel is considered to be any premises used by more than one sex worker.
- Pimping - Someone who has control over sex workers and takes the money they earn.
How we Support and Protect our Escorts
At London Deluxe, we are incredibly passionate about offering escorts a safe environment to work. We go the extra mile to ensure our ladies feel secure when meeting their clients and this is how we achieve this.
Rude Clients are NOT Tolerated
If a potential client is rude to our receptionists, the call will be ended and we will not accommodate your booking request. If you are rude, shouting or disrespectful down the phone, we do not trust you to treat an escort any better in person.
We use the safety app Client Eye to monitor if any potential clients have been flagged as abusive or problematic. We have a black list of clients we deem unsafe to meet an escort. This way we can reduce the risk to our girls of meeting a dangerous client.
We want to help escorts understand their rights. By understanding what is allowed and what isn't allowed in the industry can help everyone be safe with clients and law enforcers. We also share our expertise and tips to ensure all our girls to understand the basic safety tips to protect them when working in London.
We treat the girls like family and will always try our best to help them in any situation. Sometimes unfortunately, things may require the assistance of the police. If you are in immediate danger, please remember to call 999 and ask for the police. Not all clients can be talked down, so always be prepared to call for help. You will not get in trouble!
Extra Support Available
There are many charities that London Deluxe supports in an aim to make the industry safer for escorts. If you ever want extra support or someone to talk to externally, here is a list of charities and website links for support networks we recommend.
- National Ugly Mugs (NUM) - A charity that is aiming to end violence against sex workers.
- Beyond the Streets - A charity providing free confidential support for sex workers
- SWARM (Sex Worker Advocacy and Resistance Movement) - A campaign for the rights and safety of everyone who sells sexual services.
- Victim Support - A national charity helping anyone effected by crime to recover from their experience.
How Support and Protect our Clients
Unlike most escort agencies we require ID from every escort that applies to join our team. We must be able to verify the person applying is the same as their ID to ensure we have no fake girls on our website.
Once everyone has been verified, our team will do further checks and ensure every girl understands the basics before they are able to meet a client.
Three Strike Negative Review Policy
Unfortunately, we can not control the quality of every individual service an escort provides. Do we expect poor services? Definitely NOT!
At London Deluxe, we operate a three strike negative review policy. To be as transparent as possible, we publish all reviews (the good, bad and ugly) left by genuine clients on our website. If a girl receives three negative reviews in a short period, she is taken off the website and will no longer be represented by our agency. That is how we can protect our clients for a poor service.
