A woman who received up to $ 100 per hour to accompany wealthy men on sumptuous dates insists that her role was different to & # 39; accompanying & # 39 ;.
Josephine *, a & # 39; baby sugar & # 39 ;, was 19 years old when he discovered a website that charges men a subscription fee to bid on dating women.
"I was always honest with my dates about my" no-sex rule "if they asked, sometimes they canceled, but it did not matter, there were many more who wanted to pay only for my company," she told Mamamia.

Josephine lived abroad at the time and was struggling to make ends meet when she met a woman who had discovered a quick way to earn money to finance her "night outings, designer clothes and lavish parties."
The secret? Appointments paid.
The idea attracted him, so he set up a profile and saw how "the requests arrived".
Josephine's first date was with a 60-year-old film director in a restaurant frequented by "the rich and famous".
I left work at the bar and finally I was able to comfortably enjoy my life abroad
When the night was over, the man did not ask for sex, all he did was slip an envelope containing $ 200 into Josephine's bag.
"I was there two hours and I won $ 200, which was much more than I earned in an eight-hour shift at the bar, it was the easiest money I've won," he said.
Then 12 dates followed with "older businessmen", many of them filling her with expensive gifts.

The men he met said they were paying for appointments because they were "socially uncomfortable and traditional appointments were difficult" or simply wanted to go through the "Tinder noise".
In its heyday, Josephine had a "cash drawer" that she could dig whenever she needed money.
"I quit my job at the bar and finally I was able to comfortably enjoy my life abroad," he said.
While Josephine maintains that sex was not part of her dating arrangements, she said she dated a man from South Africa with "piercing blue eyes" whom he kissed.
And although now he has been left behind, for now, he has no qualms about sharing his past, since it is part of "who he is".
