Within the escort industry there are two main types of escort; self-employed “Independent” escorts and Escorts who are employed by an agency (such as the escorts employed by Cardiff Desires).

Clients generally have a preference, and once they have a number of positive experiences with a particular type of escort, they tend to stick with what they enjoy. The disadvantages of independent escorts from the perspective of the client is that they do not have to adhere to the high standards escort agencies usually set, such as background checks and vetting, regular sexual health check-ups, and punctuality. This usually means that the independent escort you book to visit you at your home or hotel is almost completely anonymous. Most clients can appreciate that this type of encounter would be high risk.

An escort provided by an agency is subject to the aforementioned standards and checks. Agency escorts are interviewed to ensure that they are eloquent, attractive, look like their photographs before a number of vetting checks are performed. Ultimately this process ensures that the advertised escort is the gorgeous lady who will visit you. Because escort agencies operate in a highly competitive marketplace, it is in their interest to ensure that their escorts are always well mannered, polite, reliable, punctual and motivated in order to maintain their high standards. Often if agency escorts lose motivation or become unreliable, then they are usually quickly replaced.

Another popular misconception with agency escorts it that they have a minder lurking outside the home or hotel room; this is more of an urban myth. Escorts are usually dropped off near to a client’s home by an agency driver who is careful not to stop in front of the clients house to ensure maximum discretion and to not arouse the suspicion of neighbours. The escort is then picked up by the driver at a location away from the house.
