Fucking and Finance

Obviously in London there are the energetic and striving service markets that group all over pretty much everywhere that cash can be found; restaurants, bars, night clubs and strip clubs, barbers, couturier and clothes shops. And, this being an equal opportunities age, jewelers, make up stores and beauty parlors, and loads of health clubs and fitness centres. And high class escorts.

The very major firms in the London finance field have moved to Canary Wharf, the place where many of the world-wide investment and retail banking companies are based, and to Belgravia the place where the Hedge Fund and equity capital whales reside, do the job and frolic. Often with sexy London escorts, of course.

High class London escorts are located in plenty of places of London, but eventually each one of them will definitely at least try out their hands (!) at operating in the financial market place. Who has not pondered on messing around in the finance marketplace at some point? Well these kinds of young ladies can do, and do, when they want. All the remarks on the news about men and women coming into and leaving the market make me smile somehow. I can not conceive of precisely why …

But let us be truthful, where there is the magical three legs of power, loot and men there will definitely consistently be an escort trade. Much like all the other types of support trades, London escorts are enticed to where naughty males with funds work very long work days. And that conventionally means the City of London. Although now, of course, it also suggests Canary Wharf where the multinational banks function and cavort and Belgravia where the “Hedgies” of the hugely loaded private Hedge Funds are set up in discrete houses free from even a sign to display their whereabouts. If you do not really know wherein they are, they will not want you to look around them in any case.

Working in the City of London is a great experience in a lot of ways. The feeling of history surrounding you in the thoroughfares and buildings surrounding you is evident; from Samuel Pepys residence and roadways he would definitely have been acquainted with to the settings of Jack the Rippers homicides, World War 2 shell spaces that appear in the striking incongruity of two matching property along with a fresh eighties structure, rendering it transparent that the hole is where German bombs ruined a former building. The architecture that is meant to scream about the power and dependability of the operators, be they insurance organizations, banking institutions, merchant banks, brokers or accountants.

The classic City of London (the Square Mile) is now catering predominantly to the minor portion of the investment professional services industry (and Goldman Sachs!) including insurance companies and their associated businesses who bunch up all around the Lloyds Property and the recognizable Swiss Re tower. It is a misnomer seriously to refer to the City when a lot of giants are someplace else. But lots of people mention Wall Street inspite of countless of the main firms being actually settled down in Connecticut.

The Contrast In Style Is Stunning

It does not matter how long I live in Marbella and the Costa del Sol, some things still surprise the hell out of me. And as I have been spending a lot of time in Ibiza this spring and summer it has been a little like seeing home in Marbella with a fresh eye.

Not an escort. But very Marbella

Other than the sudden and massive increase in the number of people that seem to have appeared over night while I was away for a few days, one thing really struck me about Marbella (Puerto Banus especially) when I came back after a short trip to Ibiza. The massive, over-the-top bling slinging and super-human super conscious effort that visitors to Marbs take. TOWIE made “no carbs till Marbs” famous as a slogan. But it seems that they also somehow or other. Somewhere along the line, became the ultimate fashion and styling icons for anyone who visits Marbella, Puerto Banus and the surrounding area.

It seems that no woman of whatever age or physical condition can go to one of the beach clubs in Marbella such as Ocean Club, La Sala by the Sea, or Nikki Beach without six inch platform heels, a designer swimsuit with lots of metal on it (ouch in forty degree sunshine!) and full night-time make-up and hair styling. Together, of course, with lots of shiny bracelets, huge designer sunglasses and a designer handbag large enough to fit a small car.

And no man can appear at the same locations without some combination of steroid enhanced body-builder physique (with every single body hair removed of course) and large and very heavy luxury watch and a car that costs the same to run as a small African country.

Again not an escort. But much more Ibiza.

Ibiza gives a total contrast. It is all about hippy chic and boho style. If you are a guy wearing a clunky luxury watch such as a Rolex you might as well put a sign over your head saying “asshole who doesn’t get it”. If you are a woman, it is shorts and a peasant top with flat shoes or trainers so you can go from the beach to the club and dance all night. And if your are wearing high heels you are either trying too hard or are advertising your wares as one of the lower-end streetwalking escorts who haunt the taxi ranks outside Space, Ushuaia and Pacha.

The same style differences apply to the escorts in Marbella and the escorts in Ibiza. None of my friends who work in Marbella and Puerto Banus could ever go to meet a client in anything other than full nightclub get up. Even at three in the afternoon. The highest of heels, the sexiest and most overt of dresses, full on blatant glamour with no exception unless the client has absolutely specified.

The best escorts Ibiza has to offer, as opposed to their peers who are the finest escorts Marbella can provide are much more low-key in their style. Shorts, ankle boots, (high heels in their bag together with the sex toys!) and much less overtly shouting their sex appeal.

I guess the girls fit what the men are used to being turned on by. Which makes total sense, of course. But flying from one to the other and being very aware of the styling and selling of sexuality is a little disorienting. And tough on the wardrobe!

Will Brexit mean a Brit expat exodus?

The short answer is no. Certainly not from here in Spain.

This article in The Times raised the question recently in a rather dramatic manner, such that The Guardian felt obliged to report it. Does anyone else remember when The Times was the official newspaper of record for the entire world?

Ceqg6zBWEAAGpbn

The facts, though, do not support the argument. And nor does apocryphal evidence here “on the ground”.

The Times quotes UN population estimates for 2015 which say that 1.22 million Britons are living in other EU countries at present. The same source shows that in 2010 the figure was 1.18 million. The estimated number of British migrants in the EU has therefore slightly increased during the six years to 2015.

The article says that 100 Britons have been leaving Spain over the past two years. That is based on UN data showing that slightly fewer than 309,000 UK nationals were living in Spain during the period, compared to 381,025 in 2013. The 2010 level was 319,144 people.

However, the article’s claim that the drop in the number living in Spain is driven by Brexit fears has not been substantiated. Data published by Spain’s national statistics office reveal that outward migration from Spain has increased substantially since 2009 due to the country’s economic woes, which have affected both Spanish nationals and foreign-born residents.

However, it is quite likely that the UN data underestimates the number of Britons living abroad because EU citizens living in other member states do not have to register their arrival.I know many Britons who have been living in Spain for many years and have not obtained an NIE. I´m not sure how they function, as without it most things are somewhere between difficult and impossible, but then I am fairly well integrated.

Even fewer go for full residency, as it is extremely difficult (and sometimes expensive) to obtain. Which is odd, as paying tax properly without residency is tricky, so you would think the government would encourage it.

I also wonder how the number of Britons is calculated – NIE registrations, local voter registrations or residency?

For example, in 2010 the Institute for Public Policy Research estimated that 808,000 UK nationals were living in Spain permanently. And that certainly seems like a far more realistic figure

In addition, as the piece itself states, there is no sudden increase in Britons returning home. According to the latest migration estimates from the Office for National Statistics 87,000 British citizens returned to the UK in the year ending September 2015. In the same period for the previous year, it was 81,000. And in 2010 at the height of the economic crisis and when there was no talk of Brexit, 92,000 Britons left. So basically, the entire article is tosh!

There are also a huge number of Spaniards emigrating to other Eu countries in the same period. And that has little to do with “Brexit” and everything to do with the terrible economic situation in most of Spain, and especially for young people.

We are fortunate here in Marbella in that we have a micro-economy made up of wealthy residents, and the tourists that we attract here are more wealthy than the general population. And that is obviously good news for my Marbella escorts!

As an aside, the article in The Guardian did give them the chance to roll out some of the usual cliches, including what Britons in Spain are like. Did they mention Marbella, or the successful business and club owners in Ibiza? Oh no. They show this…2984

I mean, really? Not Tibu and La Sala in Marbella, or the bars inland where everyone is beautifully integrated? Not Pacha in Ibiza, where my friends who are Ibiza escorts spend so much of their “off-duty” time? Nope. Fat middle aged men  surrounded by Union flags playing, incidentally, American pool! Grrr…

Its like someone doing an article about England and deciding to show a photo of a pub in Skelmersdale instead of somewhere in Chelsea where my London MILF friends might hang out. Or an abandoned park in some former mining town instead of sexy beautiful girls putting their wares on display in Green Park.

Everything is about focus I get. And the media are superb at controlling that while all the time presenting themselves as impartial.

So, back to the original question. Will Brexit mean that there will be a massive exodus of Britons from Spain? Only if the Spanish decide that the huge amounts of money spent here by Britons are outweighed ny the few people claiming Spanish benefits. There is no way on Gods earth that most expat Brits will voluntarily go back!

Checking Your Phone During Sex…

 

I am fairly broad-minded. There are few things I haven’t done. Managing the best escorts in Marbella and having worked with the finest London escorts there are even fewer that I haven’t organised. And I don’t think there is anything that I haven’t been asked for, except necrophilia – though I did once have an enquiry from a man who wanted a girl to play dead. With his personality it was probably what he was used to from his previous partners…

But even I was shocked to discover a sex act that is so disgusting, that shows such little respect for the other human being(s) that you are with that it is staggering in its depravity. Checking out your phone notifications during sex.

Seriously, WTF people?

And then she checked her Twitter feed…

A friend sent me the link to this Huffington Post video which is OK but did at least get me thinking. Surely that isn’t actually a thing? Well it seems that I am officially old. I checked it out with a selection of my friends both in and out of the adult industries. I thought maybe women might be more prone than men because, you know, cliches. Or professionals than amateurs because they are checking out for business.Or people in long term relationships rather than the first throes of passion because actually Twitter might be more stimulating!

And it seems that it is an age thing, not a profession thing. Amateur friends were no more or less likely to do or experience this than some stunning Ibiza escort. But while all my younger high class escort colleagues and friends immediately understood what I was asking and thought it was no big thing, my older civilian friends and mature London escorts had the same reaction I did.

For me, if the sex is so dull that you are able to check your phone, then there is something seriously wrong. And if you are paying for a woman’s time and attention and still check your phone then surely you aren’t getting value? Well, it seems I am officially an old fart.

But I am still right, and it is still wrong. So just stop it. OK?

Kisses,

See the world

When I was younger we used to joke about old advertisement for the armed services that went along the lines of “Join the army. Travel the world. Meet interesting people. And kill them.”

There are basically two types of advertisement for the armed services. One emphasises the travel, adventure and glamour. The other pushes the risk and dangers and challenges you with “are you tough enough?” These days the Royal Marines Commando pushes the latter. In the 70s and 80s it was all about glamour and palm trees.

What does all this have to do with sexy escorts in Marbella, Ibiza escorts, or London escorts? Well, it turns out, a heck of a lot.

 

I was speaking with my friend Sarah last week and she was laying out her plans for the next few months… Marbella, London, Barcelona, Madrid. Then off to Milan, Rome, Bari and Palermo: Then Marbella and London one last time before she goes back to Ibiza for the summer season. All of that travel 5 star, staying in the best hotels, eating at the finest restaurants and with a lot of extravagant shopping and sight-seeing thrown in.

Girls who escort Marbella menfolk are even sexier than this…

Best of all, her travel, hotels, meals and shopping are very often paid for her by clients. Luxury all the way, anywhere she wants.

And all that from her work as a professional escort.

She really loves her work. She is her own boss, works when she likes and comes and goes as she wishes. If you don´t count working out as work (as a former ballerina, she doesn’t) she manages all this on a maximum of 20 hours work a week. Normally a lot less.

That´s what happens when you work a a high class escort at the top of your game. I see a lot of Sarah when she is with me as a Marbella escort. She is charming, clever and as at ease with herself as anyone I have ever met.

So much for the cliche of the strung out hooker! Maybe I should run an advert; “Join the escorts. Travel the world. Meet interesting people. And shag them.”
