London Escorts

So many under age British girls are lost their virginity everyday but its not always guys fault, most of the time girls encourage guys to do this things happened.


I enjoyed reading Ash's account; very witty, humanising, and arousing. At times I wish I had lost my virginity to someone who was sexually curious, who wanted to explore, taste and smell my body rather than someone who simply wanted to plug it in the hole.


Kate you did good job, thank you for posting the story. I would say, this is where we are, all of us. I want to taste life before I die.


I read about your blog in the Guardian, a paper I’ve stopped buying (though will still check out online) due to it’s biased and factually questionable coverage of issues around sex work. I work in the sex industry, and media coverage can have a big impact on the quality of our lives, as well as harmfully influencing social attitudes and policy.

So it was a real uplift to read a positive account of a client’s interaction with a sex worker, especially as I’ve been privileged to see a number of male and female disabled clients in similar situations to Ash.

Finally, your site reminded me of
The majority of posts are from US/Canadian sex workers, but there’s a number of people from the UK and elsewhere.

Thank you for giving people a chance to share something so intimate. I hope that more people feel able to talk about their experiences due to sites like yours.

It would be great to see a more adult, real conversation about sex in our society. Your site is part of making that happen.

Thank you.


Ash - I think you have made the whole thing up.


I found this story very moving. I realise it's a spurious connection, as I'm able-bodied, but I can relate to Ash's feelings of awkwardness, curiosity and raw joy.


Amazing and inspiring story. Thanks for sharing.
