Aberdeen is located in Northern Scotland in the greater region of Aberdeenshire. Also known as the Granite City, Aberdeen is famous for a number of things, including its position as a hotspot for the oil industry, its beaches, its fishing industry, and its farming industry. Much like its sister Scottish city Edinburgh, Aberdeen is known for its culture, which has expanded across centuries.
One part of Aberdeen’s culture that gets a major mention is its sex industry. Aberdeen has in recent years become a regional hotspot for all manners of adult entertainment, including escorting. Thanks to the legality of prostitution in Scotland, the city is now popular for, among other offerings, its escort culture.
A History of Escorts in Aberdeen
Escorts have always been part of Aberdeen culture, starting from an early age. There were mistresses and concubines in the early centuries, serving as kept women to lords and ladies that paid their way. Even in those days, escorting was identified as a more genteel form of prostitution.
As far back as the 1800s, prostitution in Aberdeen was a big deal. According to a now prized record from 1855 called the Prostitution Return, there were 490 men and women recorded as sex workers in the city of Aberdeen alone. Aberdeen was still a small city then, what is today the area of the city known as Old Aberdeen.
Historians note that even then, the police were always eager to prosecute any sex workers caught. Such a record might have been used for protection against being jailed.
The Types of Escorts in Aberdeen
Escorts in aberdeen are either independent or agency based.
A sizeable percentage of Aberdeen’s escorts belong to an agency. This means that they are signed to that agency’s management in exchange for a percentage of the fees they collect from their sessions.
Agency escorts typically get their bookings managed by the agency, so they don’t have to deal with scheduling. Some agencies also procure accommodation for their escorts in order to facilitate a session. Escort agencies pay their agencies a fee for every booking but can charge extra for any additional services offered during the session. Agencies are not the same as brothels.
Unlike their agency-based counterparts, individual escorts report to no one about their services. Also referred to as ‘indies’, some independent escorts are usually former agency-based escorts. Independent escorts operate on their own.
They handle advertising, marketing, scheduling, accommodations and sessions themselves, among other tasks. The reward is full compensation sans fees to any helper or manager. Independent escorts always mark themselves as ‘independent’ on escort websites and in escort ads.
Categories of Aberdeen Escorts
Aberdeen escorts are varied and diverse, but they can be categorised distinctly using the terms that define them: job and physical descriptions. There are niche escorts that cater to very specific clients. They tend to offer some kinky services such as BDSM, S&M, fetishes, etc. There are mature escorts as well who have lots of experience and cannot fail to blow your mind every time. Other than that, escorts can be categorised according to body types so you have BBWs or big beautiful women at your disposal as well. Trans escorts are also available as well as high-class escorts who may charge a bit more but offer an extremely professional service that’s worth your money.
You will find mostly white escorts in Aberdeen, but those of other ethnicities are not hard to come by. Aberdeen’s escort ethnicities mirror those of the city’s ethnic demographics to a certain extent.
Recent data shows that white people make up the biggest chunk of the population. Minority races such as Asians rank next, making up less than 5% of the population. Citizens of the Caribbean and African descent rank next with an even lower percentage. These figures are much lower compared to those of more metropolitan cities like London. There are also various nationalities in Aberdeen with immigrants coming from Poland, Ireland, and India. According to 2018 data cited in the Telegraph, 55,000 of the city’s residents recorded that year were not UK-born. Out of a total city population of about 228,000, that is a sizeable figure.
These numbers are reflected in the nationalities of the escorts in Aberdeen. Most of the escorts you will find are white and UK-born, but a growing number are from other countries, especially Asian and East European countries. You will find 1 or 2 such minority nationalities for every 5 or 10 UK-born escorts. This disparity in nationalities doesn’t really affect languages; English remains the main language of communication.
