Escort Shares Unusual Request She Had From Client - Only To Be Ghosted
An escort has revealed one of the more unusual requests she's received from a client - saying the weirdest thing about it all was that the man went on to 'ghost' her, despite making a set of rather specific demands.
In an interview with news.com.au, author, columnist and escort Samantha X (real name Amanda Goff), remembered the time she was booked by a man who wanted to have dinner with her at an exclusive Sydney restaurant.
He asked her to dress in a red rubber catsuit, and detailed how he'd love to shower her with gifts - including, among other things, a new Mercedes.
Samantha said the client generally seemed very enthusiastic in the lead-up to their date, recalling: "Every day, counting down to our date, he'd call and say, 'I can't wait to meet you!'
"But then he went missing. I was so devastated!
"I thought that maybe he'd seen me and changed his mind."
However, Samantha soon realised the whole debacle said more about him than it did about her - saying it was likely to have been a 'power trip'.
"Now I realise it wasn't about me," she said.
"He was probably doing it as a power trip, or being a d**k and, to be honest, I was relieved I didn't have to wear a red rubber catsuit to one of Sydney's finest restaurants."

In fact, Samantha reckons ghosting within the sex industry is more common than people realise - having had a similar experience on another occasion.
A man had paid a deposit for a date, and asked Samantha to book a hotel room. He even called her on the day to tell her he'd be 10 minutes early.
"But he never showed," she said.
"I was left wondering, 'Did he die, did he have an accident?' I waited for half an hour and sent a message saying, 'Clearly you're not coming.'
"So I cancelled it. What happened?"
Samantha continued: "Ghosting is definitely a thing in the sex industry world.
"It's very confusing to me because men don't have to come to us, there are other ways to receive intimacy.
"Some clients pay deposits to book my time and then, when they don't show, I just don't understand why.
"But I think it's just a very human thing to do, to just not explain.
"I think people just get scared about being upfront and honest and it's easier to ghost someone, rather than to be honest and authentic."
