I can still remember my first customer very well… he came completely unexpectedly.
I had registered with an escort agency in Amsterdam. This was a so-called high-class escort agency who were quite strict in their selection. Part of their selection process was a two-part job interview.
The introductory meeting
It was like applying for a high-ranking position in a multinational company. The first part was an introductory meeting. I remember very well that I walked in and was taken from head to toe by two ladies with whom I had the conversation. I was literally ‘screened’.
In fact, I had sent the first photos via their website and based on the photos she told me that they were not sure if a lady with my skin color would suit their clients. But they still wanted to meet me.
The conversation went well and I was allowed to come back for the second conversation that would take place with the owner. In this interview, I was asked to look like I was going on a date. She also asked me to bring the clothes I thought I could wear to a customer. This also applied to my lingerie and heels.
During my conversation with the owner, the phone rang. Sure enough, it was a client who wanted to meet a girl of color. At the time, I was the only tinted girl on their file. The owner looked at me and said “It’s now or never.”
“And before I knew it, I was in the car with the driver in the direction of the American Hotel”.
The first time
I was so nervous and stood in front of my client’s door for at least 5 minutes before I dared to knock. My first client was not the type of man I would normally be attracted to in appearance. But after we had a nice chat with each other, it turned out to be a very sweet man. That was also the moment that I realized how important it is to start a conversation with my customers. During a conversation you find out exactly what the customer wants, but also what type of customer it is.
To be honest, I didn’t give a damn. I was clumsy, not sexy or seductive at all and way too fast. Luckily he knew it was my first time and we could laugh about it together. I have seen the same customer many times since then.
When I was outside again after 2 hours, I immediately called my best friend. “How was it?” she asked. “Now I know for sure. I’m going into the escort world.” I replied.
Thus began my exciting adventure.
