"How do escorts feel about beards?"

I’ve seen a line somewhere concerning preparing to see your escort and being clean shaven. I have a marvellous beard, well-kept and groomed. How do escorts feel about them? I mean, I love kissing and giving oral to a woman, but how does the escort feel about that?

Back in my early years of escorting, a client totally surprised me.

As I was still new to the job, I often fell into the habit of judging people before I’d met them. I’d base my assumptions on the way they spoke on the phone. On this occasion, the gentleman I was due to meet sounded like an older businessman...but when I arrived, I found myself standing in front of a lovely young man from Adelaide with the thickest, most luxurious beard I had ever seen.

We started making out. His beard smelled like cedar and aftershave. He said ‘I hope you don’t mind.’

‘Are you kidding?’ I replied, ‘This is Melbourne! I feel like I’m shagging my hot barista.’

Just as there’s no consensus on ‘what women really want,’ there’s no consensus on what escorts prefer in the way of facial hair – some love beards, and some prefer their men clean-shaven. Either way, you still have a right to go bearded or beardless, depending on your preferences.

Of course, there are a few practical considerations. If you shave, it’s helpful if you do it immediately before we meet, so that I don’t end up with stubble rash on my face (or, god forbid, my nether regions.)

And if you have a beard, it’s important to look after it. Beards are notorious for being stinky, sweaty food traps. If your face smells gross or feels greasy, your escort might be reluctant to get too close. But if you wash and condition your beard with something like this, your facial hair will look, smell and feel great.

Basically, grooming is key. Neither being bearded nor clean-shaven is a problem, as long as you have good personal hygiene.
