Having just heard the news that "Sex apps for casual encounters and no strings attached dating are losing customers to escorts," the girls here at Young Oriental are wondering just what it will take for modern society to come around to the idea that "paying for sex" is not the abnormal, ruinous act of desperate men and women that the morally outraged would have us believe it is.
To quote the article published by Sexy Asian Girls, "escorts see many unhappily married couples who have turned to an affair as their main outlet, had a bad experience, turned to sex apps, had further bad experiences, and eventually booked an escort and never looked back. And often the marriage not only survives, but becomes stronger."
It is absolutely ironic, therefore, to hear some of our clients talk about the "shame" of being outed as an escort customer compared to the "OK-ness” of being a member of a website such as Tinder, CasualX and IllicitEncounters. That is the sorry state of society's misplaced moral values.
Still, one can't argue with the facts: Membership to casual encounters and no strings attached dating websites has more than doubled in the past three years, but the market for male and female escort services has quadrupled in the same time.
There is also an increasing number of people leaving sex apps and trying escorts as an alternative to casual sex and dating.
Researchers at Oriental Girlfriend found a high proportion of the British men and women paying for sex in 2017 had previously used casual encounters and no strings attached dating websites, with little or no satisfaction.
