If ever you visualize the type of person that might manage an escort agency, exactly what impressions come to mind? Some sordid elderly guy wearing a threadbare wool sweater? Maybe a greasy flesh-peddler wearing his colourful shirt collar flipped out above the lapels of their suit jacket? A repugnant man aged over fifty donning a wife-beater singlet with cut-off sleeves and cowboy boots? Maybe a scarred eastern European together with a raspy delivery and tons of important skin ink due to their decades in East European prisons?
Or else it could be that you go with less male-centric platitudes and imagine a scary aged virago screaming at her working girls in an odd not-quite-German voice? Or else a worn-out slut that does not do the job any more but maintains every one of the harsh and warped conceptions of the industry (every motion picture people have probably encountered). Or even perhaps an overdone, talkative young girl on the make working on a Belle du Jour pose?
Whatever your expectations are, I guarantee that they are wide of the mark and have little to do with the reality of well-run and professionally ran businesses such as Allys Angels who work with the very best escorts Ibiza has to offer.
Lets start with how and why someone could end up in the sex industry? Who exactly could want to be a pimp or perhaps madam? Why might someone go into this business rather than something more conventional? Surely there are easier and nicer ways to make money and have a good life?
Well, the fact that you could ask the question in those terms is probably the reason why you wouldn’t have an immediate answer. Anyone who exactly may pose the question in those terms might almost certainly be starting from the point that any and all sex work is wrong and illegal.
If ever you live and work in Spain you would likely be very much in the minority in that viewpoint. Selling and buying sex is perfectly legal in Spain. There are literally no laws relating to it. Obviously human trafficking and other horrible and vile activities are illegal. Yet the Spanish legal view is that when two consenting adults want to exchange cash for sex, they should go to it.
Sex for sale is everywhere in Spain, especially in the big cities such as Madrid and Barcelona. It is open, above board, and is a business like any other. There are advertising sections for sex and prostitutes in every local paper. The major media businesses own websites dedicated to the marketing of sexual services. Even the general websites where you can buy and sell your car, used electricals or even old toys has a section devoted to prostitution.
Sex is a big business in Spain. And as long as the people involved in it are not dealing drugs, pay their taxes, only work with girls of fully legal age and are not involved in people trafficking, then there will be no trouble with the Policia. It is only when people act like criminals that it becomes criminal.
So what sort of people would likely own and run a business such as Allys Angels? A smart one who had the skills and drive to build a business and the patience and attention to detail required to make it successful.
