Escorts and prostitutes are two professions that many think are the same. While they both deal with the intimacy or knowing someone on a personal level, they are two different things. Prostitution involves sexual activity. This can be anything from fellatio, to sexual intercourse.

This sexual activity is done in exchange for money. When a person is an escort, it is also done for money, but it does not involve sex. It could be someone accompanying a person on a date, a business engagement, or a trip. Escorts are normally paid for just their time, while prostitutes are paid for their actions.

There are some people who think that escorts and prostitutes are the same, but actually, they are not. An escort can be a companion or someone who would entertain you whenever they are some special events available wherein you would need to have someone who will accompany you. A prostitute is someone who will provide sexual services to people who would be paying for it.

There are some escorts who will just provide the type of services that you may need to become entertained, such as a good conversation or their presence. They will not always provide sex. If they would, the costs will also be much higher as compared to what a prostitute will give.

Some may assume that the escorts and prostitutes are the same. Do remember that an escort may be someone who will accompany other people on dates. There are times when this is all that happens. They just date and escort the person to events. A prostitute is someone who may offer his/her body in exchange for money.

The escort usually gets paid higher fees especially if they would also offer sex. Some of them would get paid thousands of dollars for just one night. Prostitutes would have to make do with the small amount of money that they can get every time. Both types of jobs are risky because of the possibility of sexually transmitted diseases and sadistic men and women who may hire both escorts and prostitutes. Escorts do not work in a bothel but prostitutes do.
