London, Nov 22 (ANI): A woman, who became a hooker to fund her studies, has revealed that she left her lawyer's career behind and instead chose to work in vice full time to make 1million pounds.
Paige Ashley came from a comfortable middle-class home and her parents are wealthy farm owners and she enjoyed a privileged childhood. She went to a well-regarded school in Weybridge, Surrey, where she got four A-levels - including three grade As.
Her next step was to go to college to become a lawyer but her mum and dad said she had to learn to stand on her own two feet.They said there'd be no handouts for uni so I decided to get the money myself," New of the World quoted her as saying.
"The problem was I'd had a nice upbringing and didn't want to slum it in some grotty bedsit spooning Pot Noodles into my mouth and drinking cider," she said.
Then when a pal confessed she'd joined a London escort agency, Ashley signed up too.
"There's not a lot going for what I call bottom-end escorting," she recalled.
"My first client was a fat lawyer, who met me in a Travelodge. I remember lying back while he grunted on top of me. Not good! His breath stank - it was a big turn-off. But at least I had money.
"One bloke wanted me to re-enact a fantasy that he was a baby and I had to feed him with a bottle. Another insisted on putting on MY clothes before sex.
"I'd meet them in hotels that were usually grotty flea pits," she stated.
After two months she had 2,000 pounds and applied to universities. But then another firm that had seen her photo on the escort agency website got in touch.
"They wanted to see if I was well-spoken and could conduct myself well in social situations," she said.
"They asked if I wanted to join them, and told me I'd be earning 5,000 pounds to 10,000 pounds.
"I thought that was a month but they said per booking and that I could be going to locations all over the world. It seemed too good to be true," she revealed.
Six years later she has 300,000 pounds in the bank, a posh North London flat, a soft-top sports car and a boob job.
But although Paige has vowed to keep on hooking until she has saved the magic million, she admits she is not happy.
"I wouldn't say I was happy," she said.
"I can't turn my back on this. I'm making too much money. But all I've ended up doing is giving myself a hollow life.
"I should have roughed it with the other students. Now I'd love to turn back the clock and be slumming it in a bedsit.
"I've slept with more than 500 men, I travel the world and make lots of money but I wouldn't say I was happy. My job means I simply don't trust men - they are all ruled by what is between their legs.
"And all the glitz and glamour has gone out of it. I find five-star hotels pretty soulless places populated with people who should have better things to spend their money on.
"I've seen the world. I've been pampered, mollycoddled and spoilt, what more is there to do?
"At the age of 25 I feel a little bit burnt-out. But I'm tied to the golden handcuffs that is high-class escorting," she added. (ANI)
