I briefly dated an escort whom I’d met while working on assignment in another country (she told me over drinks the first night we met after work, so I knew from the beginning). For me, her being an escort was infinitely more moral and ethical than her being an investment banker or a corporate lawyer and I had zero problem with it. And some of her stories about clients (unnamed, of course) were absolutely hilarious and very informative. We really liked each other, and that was all that mattered.
