Hi I’m Sarah
I started Sarah’s 2 cents Escort Blog in 2016 to share my industry stories and knowledge and to shed light on some of the struggles I faced daily in a stigmatised business over the past 20 years.
My little Escort Blog has grown a lot and into what it is today; an Escort Industry Resource with a Digital Marketing Focus.
I write the occasional rant. When I see bullying, bullshit and misinformation on Twitter it can set me off but mostly I try to educate and empower the escort industry in the topics I have knowledge, experience and skill.
I say things I believe in, back things up with well-researched facts and my personal experiences.
I often write the things nobody else wants to say publicly. Hence the name of my blog Sarahs 2 cents, it’s my 2 cents and I hope you find it helpful.
I hope you enjoy my little dinky escort blog
I have worked in various capacities in the Escort Industry since 2000. Prior to 2000, I was in IT working mostly as an analyst/programmer primarily in Banking and Finance.
I started my IT career in Web Development and Digital Marketing when the internet was kinda new. When you had to dial in and wait about 10mins for a page to download and that was a fast connection LOL
My first computer was an Apple IIC, then I went to a PC with Linux, this is before Microsoft made things easy with Windows and a mouse and stuff like that.
Whilst I am a total computer nerd, I love data and stats, I have also lived in the Escort world for a long time
I have learnt a lot, some good, some bad, some damn ugly. I have stuck around a long time so I obviously like it here
The Adult Industry has been a big part of my life, I learnt long ago to have it as a part of of my life but not my entire life. It can be all-consuming if you let it
Escort Industry Changes
Things have changed greatly since I started in the Escort Industry over 20 years ago
Society is far more open to sexwork which makes it easier in some ways and much harder in others. Back in my Heyday Escorts looked a certain way, dressed a certain way and acted a certain way
Escorts didn’t have social media, followers or fans nor side hustles of camming or onlyfans
International Escort Tours are now quite commonplace
There are dozens of advertising options and a few thousand escorts visiting touring internationally each year.
The industry is now everyone doing their own thing and is run by directories, back in my day we all worked with agents so there wasn’t the level of timewasters there are now. Idiots never got to text us as the only person with our phone number was our agent.
When I was an Independent I was email-only to start with then I became calls only with a redirected number. There was no SMS and no WhatsApp, which is where I find 90% of the timewasters lurk, on free apps & SMS

Agency Atlantic Escort Agency was a digital-only Escort Agency for almost 2 decades ago
All admin staff and all the escorts we represented worked remotely. We didn’t need an in-house premise where girls waited or were expected to turn up for shifts. We have always relied on web and technology which is now the work I help businesses with via my Digital Agency Agency Atlantic Digital
My Escort Blog History
2016-2018 I wrote a lot about running my agency including personal blogs about some challenges I faced in the industry with things like bullying, stigma and whorearchy.
My blogs are written about things that happen during my day, things that are bugging me, answers to questions I am repeatedly asked or the truth to rumours that I want to dispel.
The Escort Industry can be pretty bloody brutal. Whilst people would try to have you believe it’s a community… It’s a bit of PR more than reality, it is cliquey and the cliques often bully the others.
Prior to social media I personally found the industry was much nicer, now there is so much fighting on twitter it’s embarrassing.
In 2018 I did quite a few posts on Escort Advertising. The closure of Backpage Cracker and various other escort directories sent the entire Escort Industry into a bit of a tailspin.
In 2019 I am writing a lot less but more focused on digital marketing, SEO and Web Development as that’s what I am doing in my day to day work and the things I am excited about.
Web solutions and digital business strategy is the work I enjoy, am very experienced in and have been doing most of my adult life.
I write in the hope of empowering others, teaching something new and helping escorts understand some concepts that are not really covered publicly on the internet
I always write for an International Audience even though of late a lot is Australia related as I am now based in Australia
I copped a lot of hate when I came to Australia for labelling my business as an Escort Agency when really my business has always been managing people and creating web solutions.
I don’t think anyone really knew what my job entailed nor did anyone ever ask me. They labelled me a pimp and a person taking advantage of others. Nope, my job has always been to help others earn more and be safe and supported.
Many Australian Escort Agencies are stuck in the olden days and have not changed with the industry, in the past 20 years, wow the escort industry has changed a lot!
I read a lot of Tech blogs and SEO blogs. At the moment many of the blogs I write are coupling these topics I enjoy and in which I have many years experience — SW almost 20 years — IT/Tech nearing 30 years — SEO 7 years
Prior to and also while I have been Sarah, my career, studies and interests have always been IT and Internet-based.
I have worked on many industry-related projects as well as real-world projects. I have been a trainer and taught IT courses at TAFE and various colleges across Sydney.
I was a nerd long before it was cool lol I love tech, data and problem solving; Statistics make me happy
The Escort blogs I have written (not the guest blogs) are my opinion and I add well-researched facts, statistics and data
My blogs are not written with the purpose of upsetting anyone nor is my advice definitive or me thinking I am some great expert.
It’s just me writing how I see things. As the saying goes ‘opinions are like a**holes, everyone as one’
I hope you enjoy reading my Escort Advice Blog
