1. Overall Look - First and foremost, obviously this is an industry based on image, much like the modeling industry. You need to be fresh-faced, classically beautiful, with a flawless complexion and pleasant features. And much like a model, you need to be a 'blank canvas', to be able to cater the client's preferences to some degree. Tattoos are prohibited, and your hairstyle needs to be mainstream and suited to you. Lavender or pink hair is all well and good in your own life, but not for work. So facially and surface-image-wise, you need to be a classic beauty. If you would not be hired by a commercial model agency, and have not been told you're so beautiful' all your life, then you may not be suited to a courtesanship. While conservative cosmetic surgery can change that, too much work can ruin your look, so any over-done work, fillers, botox etc. needs to be avoided. Natural beauty is imperative. 2. Physique & Lifestyle - Continuing on from the first point, you need to be physically exceptional. This is not to say there is any one type of shape or height that works, but that whatever your shape or height, you need to be in phenomenal physical condition. Whether you have an hourglass shape, or a supermodel stature, or the androgynous look of a ballerina - you need to be exceptionally fit. You are working at an elite level - like a top model, an elite athlete or an accomplished actress. You need to be eating very, very carefully, and working out religiously every day. There is no place for eating disorders, a lazy lifestyle, a nonchalant approach to your health, regular 'partying', or fluctuating body size. You are exceptional, you are a queen. You must behave and take care of yourself like one. Again, some minor surgery to smooth some little bumps or balance things aesthetically can assist if done conservatively. This is a personal choice, but should definitely not be over-done. An out-of-proportion bust, over-pouted lips, frozen features or scars from surgery are unacceptable. 3. Education - There are two different types of education. While traditional schooling education, in general, is seen as rather bourgeois by the elite set, it is still something bowed to and considered a standard requirement, to prove one's ability to commit to and achieve something in youth. While one is not supposed to allow one's free mind and spirit to be re-shaped and boxed into the 'university' way of thinking, one is expected be able to show the ability to follow convention and spit out results that fit into the cookie-cutter expectations of the system. And then we have the more organic education of life - music, opera, theater, art, travel, conversation, interaction with other cultures etc. There is no university that can teach the soul to feel the passion evoked by Mozart. No college can teach the compassion and empathy that Botticelli inspires. No traditional schooling can create the height of emotion conjured by an opera or the excitement of being in a new city or location for the first time. A combination of these is required in a good courtesan. This requires a certain type of upbringing, to be exposed to this level of culture. 4. Breeding and Personality - While the two don't always go hand-in-hand, for a deluxe gfe escort, they must. Your background needs to include a 'normal' (i.e. mainstream, healthy) upbringing, sans drug or alcohol problems, abuse, poverty, etc - Not that any of these are anyone's fault by any means, but this exposes one to an unhealthy environment that rarely leads to healthy behavior. One needs to have been brought up with a decent amount of protection, care, and a peaceful calm environment, with proper hygiene, manners and housing. One also needs to have been afforded the freedom to be oneself. Thus developing one's natural personality, unmarred by oppression or duress. A light-hearted, tolerant, and curious nature is most successful in the courtesan arena. She is kind, gracious and dignified, even in unfortunate situations. She doesn't speak unless it's to say something beautiful. Open minded and amicable personalities do best, where one is friendly with everyone, and easily strikes up interesting conversations with new people. Deportment is obviously a given; if she doesn't know how to walk, sit, eat and conduct herself properly, without airs and graces, she is not yet suited to be labeled 'elite'. An empathy and compassion for fellow human beings is a must, in order to be able to attend to someone in this capacity, to create the required connection. Intelligence obviously goes without saying; possessed as an innate talent, as well as having been developed through excellent education, mentioned above. If you expect to walk into the date in designer clothing, have a lovely chat, give the gentleman a wonderful massage, lay down to have sex, then leave, you have entirely missed the point of the elite courtesan world. 5. Talent - There's no point having a great look and all this knowledge and personality, with no real talent or form of expression... You'd simply be a lovely, live ornament. A confident and accomplished courtesan is also well versed in some areas of sports and expression - the more the better. In Victorian times, a proper lady was not 'marriage material' or even courtesan material until she had mastered a list of things every 'proper woman' could do. This is not about making herself 'worth' anything - she is already enough. It is about investing in herself to add to her value. Obviously a woman with abilities is far more helpful than one who requires being waited on. Whether equestrian skills, skiing, tennis, playing a musical instrument, singing, dance talents, home decor, admin skills, cooking, an immense knowledge and experiments in a particular area, an extensive knowledge of wines and spirits - the list is endless. An elite escort brings all this to her dates, and provides whatever is required to participate in her gentleman's preferences. She is able to discuss his work and ideas for the future, and give genuine, intelligent feedback and advice. She is able to perform at any event, function or situation he may require her to attend. She doesn't need to know EVERYTHING - nothing is more engaging for a man than to be able to teach his paramour something. The 'little damsel' fantasy that most men are biologically attracted to. However, she needs to have basic knowledge, and be a quick learner. A lot of general knowledge and some specialty talents is a perfect balance. And if you are going to be intimate with anyone in your life, a date through the agency or in your own life, make it your business do be phenomenal. Research, practice techniques and be memorable, not a cold fish! 6. Style - This is an important point, especially in today's societal climate... Showing one's shape is appealing. Showing flesh is common, trashy and unacceptable in high society. That's just a fact. Outside of a swimming pool or purpose photo shoot, her image is protected. The courtesan wears a very understated, classic style - and she wears it well. Her aim is to be unobtrusive; elegant and understated, but never ever showy or 'noticeable' for the wrong reasons. She favors neutral and tasteful colors. She favors fitted pencil skirts worn below the knee, appropriate elegant footwear, jackets tailored to fit close at the waist, and scarves to protect her decolletage from prying eyes, other than those of her chosen lovers or paying clientele. This woman is exceptionally selective, and her self-respect does not compel her to seek validation by splashing her 'wares' to all and sundry. She knows she is a special woman, a queen, an exceptional individual inside and out. She protects herself appropriately, and presents herself in tasteful, appropriate fashions. Rather than wearing 'the latest trends', or flashy, gaudy outfits, she wears what is suited to her and her elegant style. Nightclub or 'bodycon' dresses are never, ever acceptable. Teetering on massive platform shoes, or oddly designed shoes is not exactly understated or classic. Large jangly jewelry, heavy perfume, heavy make up and very low-cut tops are never seen on an elite woman. 7. Reliability and Integrity - If you aren't able to do what you say, be where you say and deliver what you say, you are not suited to be an elite escort. You cannot make dates and not turn up. You cannot allow an agency to promote you then not be available. Wasting peoples' time is extremely unprofessional. If you expect to be considered elite, promptness and trustworthiness are basic requirements of professionalism. A quality woman honors her word, and a courtesan is nothing if not completely honest, authentic and honorable when it comes to her reputation. She is the quintessential 'cortigiana onesta' (the honest courtesan).
