Asian Escort Sales Bounce Back

4

Back in July 2014 we reported on “the Asian Escort business in London is enjoying something of a renaissance, both in terms of fiscal performance and popularity,” – a trend that appears to slowing down, if not reversing, according to the results of a poll of London escort agencies carried out by Oriental Girlfriend, the London based Asian escort and massage service. Results of a survey of 20 London escort agencies suggests that the escort industry in London is experiencing something of a downturn with sales of escort services down by almost 30% on this time last year. According to Oriental Girlfriend, the last quarter of 2014 (Oct-Dec) was ‘the worst trading period’ for almost two years, although the previous six months (April-Sept) yielded ‘higher than average’ sales for Asian Escorts in London. “London’s Asian escort agencies have suffered their toughest Christmas since the financial crisis struck, according to industry figures that show a substantial decline in sales in November and December, which is usually a very busy period for the escort business,” said Odda Ganesa, CEO, Oriental Girlfriend. “Following an encouraging start to the year and very strong summer and autumn, November and December sales dropped by 28% on a year earlier in like-for-like terms, according to our poll of Asian escort agencies in London– the worst December performance since the start of the recession.” The poor figures for December are thought to have been caused by Black Friday, which fell at the end of November and brought forward a lot of present shopping. “I think customers simply ran out of money,” Ganesa said, “but we are hopeful that consumers will reap the rewards of record low inflation more than anywhere else in the UK – thanks to a slump in oil and food costs – and that is likely to result in more spending power.” By Fifi Fuchida
