An escort is a paid companion, that is, a + to which a client pays to go with him to meetings, parties, trips to another city, etc. Recruitment may or may not include sex.
In most cases, the client of this service seeks above all the feeling of superiority provided by being accompanied by a woman with a high level of education and an excellent presence.
In recent years this phenomenon has crossed the borders of gender and increasingly there are more male escorts. The documentary The Great Happiness Space: Tale of an Osaka Love Thief, shot and directed by Jake Clennell in 2006, reflects the rise of this phenomenon in Japan.
Many Japanese girls go to glamorous places and pay hundreds of dollars to have a good time with a guy who likes them. It is the masculine and modern version of the traditional geisha.
