Dubai is known as the hub for exotic escorts, but it’s also home to an increasing number of women who seek out sex work as an alternative to a traditional career.
A recent survey by Dubai’s Independent Escorts in Deir el-Medina (IEDD) found that about half of the escorts surveyed said they would like to work as a male escort.
But there are plenty of women in Dubai who are willing to take on a more traditional role as escorts.
The industry has been growing in recent years, but is still growing, according to the Dubai Independent Escort Association (DISA).
The number of female escort in the city has grown by more than 50 percent in the last three years.
Many of these women are not seeking to work exclusively as a sex worker, but also as an escort.
A number of companies are now offering a range of services, ranging from massage to live sex shows.
But the women who choose to work with an escort as a woman are mostly in their 30s and 40s.
For these women, the job is all about comfort, said Nabeel Farzana, the director of DISA, which is an association of female sex workers in Dubai.
“In Dubai, we don’t see women as older, we see them as younger, we are seeing more people between 40 and 50 years old who are working as escort or sex workers,” she said.
“But we don´t see them being as comfortable with it, we want them to be comfortable with what they are doing and what they need to do to be happy and safe.”
Escorts are expected to work a variety of jobs, from housekeeping to catering.”
And that’s what we really want to see.”
Escorts are expected to work a variety of jobs, from housekeeping to catering.
But many are looking to find an industry that is affordable and can be a stepping stone to a career in the sex industry.
In some cases, escorts have even been trained to perform a variety different kinds of sex acts, according the DISA.
“We see escorts come from all over the world.
They come from countries such as Thailand, the Philippines, India and Australia,” said Farzam.
“They come from places that are in need of women, and they want to help their clients, their partners and their families, she added.”
It is not an exclusive industry, there are many escorts working in Dubai and in Dubai itself.
“The job is for everyone, it is a choice.
There are many different kinds and different levels of escorts and escorts that you can find in Dubai.”
But while most of the women surveyed said that they were looking for a career outside of sex work, some have had enough to take up a more conventional role.
The most common reason given for wanting to quit their traditional job is to make more money, according Farza.
“They say they want more money to support their families and their children,” she explained.
“And they want the opportunity to be a part of the community.”
While some women have said they have had offers of work from other agencies in Dubai as escorting, many prefer the lifestyle they have found in Dubai for their own reasons.
“I really like the culture of Dubai, I really like my surroundings, I like being at home,” said one woman in the survey.
“So it has helped me to have that choice.”
For these and other reasons, it’s no surprise that the majority of women surveyed chose to work in the escort industry.
Some women also said they had the confidence to go into the industry as a man, said Farza.
“So for some of them, it´s like they just want to be like a man in a certain way,” she added, adding that she wanted to help women make their own choice about their career choice.
The latest figures from the Dubai Sex Industry Survey indicate that more than 1,600 women have taken up escorts as a career.
But the vast majority of them prefer to stay as women, even though there is a growing market for female escorting in the Middle East and Africa.
