A woman who was paid up to $ 100 an hour to accompany wealthy men on lavish dates insists her role was different from “the escort.”
Joséphine *, a “sugar baby”, was 19 years old when she discovered a website that charges men a subscription fee for bidding on dates with women.
“I was always candid with my dates about my ‘no-sex rule’ if they asked me. Sometimes they would cancel, but it didn’t matter, there were a lot of others who wanted to pay for my business on their own, ”she said. Mama mia.

Josephine was living abroad at the time and was struggling to make ends meet when she met a woman who had discovered a quick way to make money to finance her “parties, her designer wardrobe. and his lavish vacation “.
The secret? Paid meetings.
The idea appealed to her, so she created a profile and watched the “requests come in”.
Josephine’s first date was with a 60-year-old director in a restaurant frequented by “the rich and famous”.
I quit work in a bar and was finally able to enjoy my life abroad comfortably
At the end of the night, the man didn’t ask for sex, he just slipped an envelope containing $ 200 into Josephine’s bag.
“I had been there two hours and won $ 200, which was way more than I would earn in eight hours at the bar. It was the easiest money I have ever made, ”she said.
12 more dates “with mostly older businessmen” followed – many of them gave him expensive gifts.
“I was always upfront with my dates about my ‘no-sex rule’ if they asked me,” Josephine said (stock image)
Men she met said they paid for dates because they were either “socially awkward and found traditional dating difficult” or just wanted to cut through the “noise of Tinder.”
In her prime, Josephine had a “drawer full of money” that she could dig into whenever she needed money.
“I quit work in a bar and was finally able to enjoy my life abroad comfortably,” she said.
While Josephine maintains that sex was not part of her dating arrangements, she said she was dating a South African man with “piercing blue eyes” whom she kissed.
And although she’s left behind for now, she has no qualms about sharing her past because it’s part of “who she is.”
