One nice thing about vacations is that even if you work some there is still time to indulge little pleasures, like catching up on blogs. Victoria recently wrote about a friend commenting that she frequently paid for lunch or dinner with one hundred dollar bills. That got me to thinking about all the ways those of us who try/tried to lead a secret life sometimes lead to our own exposure, beyond blogging, appearing on TV news magazines or being arrested of course.

The unexplained cancellation of plans, the travel, being seen with gentlemen who are not our type and we’ve never mentioned. Leaving hotels. Incriminating evidence falling out of your purse. Sending an email to someone from the wrong account. Making reference to something that results in questions being asked. The clothes and expensive gifts and of course the money without a visible means of having earned it. Appearing too knowledgeable regarding sex work or too innocent.

Consider the services that we use that may arouse suspicion on the part of the provider. How about the photographer, you don’t believe he/she bought the story that the pictures were for your BF. Who does your website? How about where you go for your VD screenings? The limo service. The hotel doorman and front desk staff, Anne Marie tells me that pick out the escort is a popular game for hotel staff. The store where you purchase the condoms, a twelve pack now and again is innocent, a couple of dozen every week raises eyebrows.

Who knows that I haven’t considered?

Perhaps this?

"This is how Italy functions, says call girl

Elevated from call girl to parliamentary candidate but then ostracised by those who feared she would reveal her secrets, Patrizia D’Addario’s story as the escort who went public about her night with Silvio Berlusconi has aspects of a soap opera.

There is also a dark side to the experience of the 42-year-old single mother who sees herself as part of the “system” in Italy, where businessmen pay women to entertain politicians...."

Cheers & Good Luck! 'VJ'
