There are too many risks escorting in a country where it's illegal, in my opinion, that's not a smart move.
Are the scenarios you laid out the only things you'd have in mind for your ideal life, or are you unnecessarily limiting yourself there? What would you do if you didn't have to worry about money?
I wish escorting were legal but that would mean more competition. If I go through with it, I plan to only involve people I know rather than putting myself on the internet and getting busted. I think cops should be ashamed of themselves for arresting girls for doing nothing particularly immoral.
If I didn't have to worry about money, I would do what I'm doing now, reading, watching documentaries and learning about politics, atheism, science, psychology, etc., giving advice, interacting with likeminded people, and hooking up.
