All About Social Escorts & Compensated Dating In Singapore

compensated dating Singapore

An interesting phenomenon I have noticed is that there are many men in Singapore who are increasingly using social escorts or sugar babies.

In fact, recently, I also came across an article on SCMP about all these girlfriend experience or rent a date services. This further spurred me on to write this post.

Personally, if you want to skip to the conclusion – I am a fan of social escorts. However, it is true that other variations of compensated dating is also becoming popular on their own rights in Singapore, so I shall talk briefly about all of them below.

Compensated dating – social escorts or sugar babies or platonic rent a friend services

For the uninitiated, compensated dating is basically a form of dating where your partner goes out with you because you paid the girl.

There are various forms of it, some legal, and we will only discuss those on our website.

1. Social escorts

The most common, oldest and well established area of compensated dating in Singapore, social escorts are usually beautiful Singaporean girls who will accompany you for a high sum of money. They are basically your girlfriend for the hour, hours or even a day.

They can be engaged for an occasion, a private date, or simply as a companion.

The biggest difference between social escorts and rent a friend is that rent a friend is purely platonic. Social escorts are not platonic – at least the good ones. The good social escorts provide what is known as the girlfriend experience.

2. Sugar babies

While escorts are essentially just short term sugar babies, sugar babies are slightly more controversial in the news in Singapore nowadays simply because it is just less established and deep rooted.

Sugar babies are basically what some call – a kept girl. So they are basically a girlfriend with no strings attached, just that a monthly financial commitment is required to upkeep the relationship.

If you have lots of free time, and desire a longer term relationship than a social escort, then sugar babies can be a better choice for you. Unfortunately for me, I am always busy so this is not the ideal option for me.

3. Rent a friend

This is the platonic option, and slightly different from social escorts and sugar babies.

Rent a friend prevents even non sexual physical contact, even hand holding. This can be seen as way too extreme for many people, and it turns me off as well. However, it can possibly be a great option if you just need more people at an event to liven it up. See them as a form of rent a crowd for a small event type of services. They are literally rent a friend, versus rent a girlfriend which is the case for social escorts and sugar babies.

Something different is that rent a friend services usually include males as service providers as well. However, social escorts and sugar babies are almost exclusively females only. So ladies looking for compensated dating, here is your place.

Do I see users of compensated dating as losers which some love to call?

Not true at all. They are usually simply successful men who do not have time to date the conventional way!

 

Dating Woes For Men In Singapore?

dating in SG

As I lived longer in Singapore, I realized there are some big and common dating problems for men when it comes to dating in Singapore.

Here are some of the dating issues which I faced as an expat living in Singapore.

Most Singaporean girls are not interested in guys once they find out you are an expat

First of all, most girls did not seem very interested in entering a potentially long term relationship with me once they knew I was only going to be in Singapore for a few years. While there are exceptions to the rule, this seems to be the case for most of the girls in SG. I actually asked around my expat friends, and that seemed to be the case for them as well. Girls in Singapore prefer to date for the long term only… unless of course if you chose to engage escorts, sugar babies or picked up girls at clubs instead.

Singapore girls are materialistic

Second of all, girls in Singapore are materialistic! While many of them claim they are not, their actions usually prove otherwise. Many of them only want to hang out with guys at least on their financial level if they are students. If these ladies are working professionals, then they usually want a man who makes a comfortable amount more than her.

It is just generally harder to date SG girls

Seriously, I have no idea where on earth people get the idea that expats or Caucasians date easier. That is complete bollocks in real life and probably only happens in the mind of people who have nothing better to do. It is not the case. Singapore girls are just generally not easy and can be hard to date in general.

Venturing Into Boudoir Photography In Singapore?

Should I venture into boudoir photography in Singapore?

Recently I came across a video by a fellow expat photographer in Singapore, albeit she’s in a slightly different market – boudoir photography.

While boudoir photography is definitely much more niched down than what I do, which is portrait photography, it seems much easier to make a name for myself in that market due to lower competition. What do you guys think? I have also been getting some requests for boudoir photo shoots from some of the girls whom I take pics of.

Check out the above YouTube video to basically watch pretty much the pre-eminent boudoir photographer in Singapore.

What I personally think is that it could be one of the services that I offer, as I am thinking that perhaps.

Just sharing my thoughts on my blog here, and wondering if you have any two cents to give me?

It seems like you could charge a lot more and work with pretty girls! I had mentioned before in a previous post that specializing for weddings or pre-wedding shoots could also be a possibility. But that seems over competitive and certainly very overcrowded in Singapore. A simple search will show you hundreds of small time wedding photographers competing for business.

I would rather have a small business on my own and instead of fighting behemoths. Besides, living as a portrait photographer in Singapore has been able to allow me to make a decent income alone with no stress.

What do you guys think? Should I make this step and foray into the boudoir world in Singapore? I would be thinking that clients would probably consist of model wannabes, escorts, wives, e.t.c.
