In the area of sexuality, the interactions between men and escorts are generally understudied. It has been estimated that between 15 and 20 percent of men in the United States have paid for sex at least once in their lifetime. This range is more conventional than some estimates—some researches have concluded that as many as 40 percent of the male population will visit or have visited an escort at some point in their life—but more recent studies have shown the 15-20 percent range to be more accurate.
Men, Escorts, and Seeking Proper Health
Tolerance and legality also affect whether men seek out healthcare advice in relation to sexual health. Also, many people feel there are stigmas to seeking medical attention for sexual needs, afraid they will be looked down upon for their sexual desires and habits. In countries and states where the government sanctions the business of escorts selling their services, sex workers are required to attend clinics on a regular basis to check for evidence of sexually transmitted diseases or other infections. Availability of treatment for some sexually transmitted diseases helps prevent the spread of these diseases. However, some of them have no treatment or cure, which makes protection even more important.
Paid sex and Use of Condoms
How often men engage in sexual activity with escorts varies greatly globally and rates are certainly dependent on paid sex’s legality in a society and how much it is tolerated. Engaging in sexual activity with an escort is risky behavior, and safe sexual practices are essential for those who seek out escorts. Anyone can catch a sexually transmitted disease if they have unprotected sex with someone who is infected. You should always protect yourself when having a sexual encounter with an escort, or anyone for that matter if you are not in a monogamous relationship.
Safe sexual practices that will protect you and your partner include:
• Always using a condom for vaginal or anal sex
• Using a stronger condom for anal sex, and plenty of water-based lubricants (do not use oil-based lubricants with latex condoms as it can make the condom porous and prone to breaking)
• For oral sex with a woman, use a dental dam. These can be obtained from internet retail sites, genito-urinary or other clinics.
Conclusively, whether you are an escort or a client, get regular medical check-ups and always stay safe.
