& # 39; We had wine to start with and talked for about half an hour & # 39 ;: massage therapist pays for a male escort as a birthday present for himself – and says all women should do the same
- Taranga is a massage therapist by profession and lives and works in Sydney
- For her 50th birthday last year, she decided to give herself a male escort for sex
- She said the experience was positive and that she had done her research
- Studies show that women choose escorts over dates to be safer
A woman who paid for a male escort on her 50th birthday as a gift for herself revealed why she encourages other women to experience the empowering service for themselves.
Taranga, from Sydney, had high hopes for her one-on-one sex session with a stranger after she had previously tried to book one that canceled at the last minute.
& # 39; A few years ago I booked everything, including the hotel, and on the day the escort called to cancel quoting & # 39; personal reasons & # 39 ;. That was a little daunting, & she said to FEMAIL.

So for her 50th birthday a year ago, Taranga looked at Australia's private escort guide, Scarlet Blue, hoping to get the exact & # 39; look & # 39; and find experience she was looking for.
& # 39; I wanted someone who looked good, with first-class photos & # 39; s … I didn't want to show anyone off their shirts or their chest gear, & # 39; said the now 51-year-old.
& # 39; I wanted someone who looked normal, was comfortable in his skin and showed his face online. & # 39;
As a massage therapist, Taranga wanted to be treated like her clients for a day and know what it feels like to give up control.

& # 39; I got the idea of the Secret Diary of a Call Girl TV show. She keeps her business and professional life separate, but decided to act like a customer to research her new book, & she said.
& # 39; I was wondering what it would be like to be a customer. & # 39;
But she wasn't looking for a & # 39; dating & # 39; experience and was purely interested in sex.
& # 39; The man I chose called out and came straight to my house, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; We first had some wine and talked for about half an hour. But then we went on. & # 39;
She described the man she chose as & # 39; handsome, young and fit & # 39; and the encounter itself as empowerment, although it is of the & # 39; expensive variety & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; It's great to let go and let someone else take the lead. In the back of my mind, I now know what it's like to open the door for a stranger, so I'm more aware of what it's like to be a customer, & she said.
Taranga would be & # 39; absolutely & # 39; others recommend seeing an escort for sex, just like & # 39; you pay a plumber or electrician to repair your house & # 39;

& # 39; It was a lot of money, but it was also really interesting & # 39 ;, she said.
& # 39; Their job is to feel comfortable and not nervous at all, which my male escort was very good at. It should be an opportunity to explore your sexuality & # 39 ;.
Why do other women pay for escorts?
Faith, 45, is the director of an international pharmaceutical company.
She started seeing Alex * when she turned 42 and wanted something carefree and without obligations or stress.
& # 39; I had two hours with Alex the first time, which cost me $ 1000. It was pleasant. We had a strong bond from the start & # 39 ;, she told FEMAIL.
& # 39; Alex is great, he likes to push my limits and leaves me with a big smile on my face. & # 39;
Faith has worked his way up the career ladder and said it can be very lonely for a woman like her at the top of their game & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I don't take my expenses into account. I work very hard to enjoy my life and seeing Alex is the same as spending money on shoes or handbags, & she said.
& # 39; I prefer to spend money on memorable experiences. & # 39;
A recent report from the University of New South Wales found that women all over Australia buy sex to ensure that they can experience sexually safely.
& # 39; Twenty-one women who bought sex discussed their experiences with the use of both female and male sex workers and discovered that many did so for a sense of security, & # 39; Sydney Morning Herald reported.
All women said that their escort met their desire to use a condom and that their limits were respected.
& # 39; One of my participants was someone who had suffered sexual abuse in childhood to a terrible extent and she said that when she bought sex … that was the first time she actually stopped when she said no to someone , & # 39; lead author of the report, Dr. Hilary Caldwell.
& # 39; (The women in the study) were not afraid that they would be pressured or do something they didn't want … they felt that if they said they didn't want to do anything, it would be respected. & # 39;
