New breed of prostitutes caters to India's rich
Nisha, a 24-year-old model, is one of the thousands of highly paid prostitutes catering to India's nouveau riche as also foreign clients. Today, many girls opt for this profession, lured by the lucrative returns and convenient working hours

PROSTITUTION, THE world’s oldest profession, is now no more a trade women take to because of crushing poverty or other compelling circumstances that a woman or her family faces. Today many girls are into this profession of their own volition. They are ready to exploit their looks and body to make a quick buck. Their clients are from the upper strata of society who pay them generously for their services.

Recently, a girl willingly took up this profession, in the guise of ‘escort’. Nisha (name changed), a 24-year-old model and actress said she had found the perfect job. “The earning is great and you don’t have a deadline to meet. There is no boss to work under; it is completely your own business in which you are your own boss. No hard and fast rules, no hassle of taking leave and the working hours are also very convenient.”

Nisha is one of the thousands of high-class escorts who entertain the nouveau riche.She even goes on foreign jaunts with her clients quite often. She also admitted that it’s just like any other profession – that of a doctor, an engineer, an architect and so on. “This is my profession and of course, a more lucrative profession to earn more and more money in a very short period of time,” she said confidently, in English, with a distinct American accent.

She also briefed about her so-called escort job profile: how much she earns and what are the services she provides to her clients. It was just a one-hour job. “I talk to the person for half-an-hour and then the other half-an-hour in bed. You can’t make such earnings in that small period.” Plying her trade in five star hotels owing to fear of being caught, she charges Rs 1,00,000 (USD 4,600) for just an hour . She belongs to the upper middle class and is a graduate. She defines her profession as the most glamorous in the world and is happy with it.

The average middle and high class sex workers in India charge anywhere between Rs 10,000 and Rs 50,000 per hour. But unlike Nisha, who charges many times more than an average prostitute, hardly five to seven per cent of the prostitutes in India charge so heavily. Highly qualified and trained escorts throughout the world, including India, charge anywhere between Rs 5 lakhs to Rs 25 lakhs for just an hour. Some escort companies operating in India have their branches worldwide and deal with international clients too. Moreover, today, the Internet provides an easy way to communicate with foreign clients and as a result, their business is flourishing. Owners of such escorts companies insist that their employees satisfy the clients and the clients pay the company for hiring the girl.
