Scottish Escorts, Scottish Models and Scottish Courtesans
A word of warning, the laws on sex work and purchasing sex are broadly similar to England and Wales. There are though some subtle differences. Buying and selling sex is legal, so long as it is indoor. Soliciting and kerb-crawling is illegal as in England. Sex workers working together is also illegal. There are also differences in the way the law is implemented throughout Scotland. The police forces in Scotland used to be regional. The Edinburgh force allowed sex-work to occur in Saunas, while Glasgow and Aberdeen had a zero policy on brothels. There is now one police force in Scotland. It was originally headed up by the Glasgow commander. The result, mayhem, sex workers evicted from the Edinburgh saunas in their underwear on to the streets. There was a public backlash, and life has continued as before.
If you are an escort in Scotland, take heed; do not work with others for safety in Glasgow or Aberdeen. These regions still have a zero tolerance for brothels, and you will be prosecuted for brothel keeping. Please refer to ScotPep for advice.
Most Glasgow models are working independently from flats or providing outcall services. You will find all types of Glasgow callgirls, from Glasgow BBW, escorts, Glasgow model escorts and the Glasgow courtesans, who are the elite and at the top of their game. There are also Glasgow escort agencies who are able to provide a selection of girls to your hotel or home. Keep an eye on the Glasgow tour dates. There are many ladies who regularly tour. Look here for Glasgow escorts.
Aberdeen has been a rich city flooded with oil money and men working on the oil rigs. Aberdeen escorts have made rich pickings from the large quantities of disposable income in the city. The low oil prices and jobs loses have impacted on this booming industry. Still, Aberdeen girls abound, and many other ladies tour the city on a regular basis. As I have warned before, if you are a escort in Aberdeen, be very careful and don’t work with other ladies. This, unfortunately, is dangerous. Only recently a woman was murdered in Aberdeen, working on her own. In my mind, the laws and the police implementation of the laws are much to blame for her death.
Clients can locate Aberdeen models through these pages. Aberdeen courtesans come in all shapes, sizes and services they provide. As in Glasgow, there are a substantial number of ladies touring the city.
Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland had a more progressive attitude toward Edinburgh women. The city allowed informal working together and also allowed brothels to run in the city. Edinburgh women worked together in Edinburgh saunas. These Edinburgh brothels were licenced by the city council as Edinburgh Saunas. Unfortunately, their status is very grey at present. There has been pressure from third wave feminist organisations and Christian groups to close them down. The change of police force occurred, and there were raids. The owners of the brothels were charged, these charges have since been dropped, and the saunas still operate. The council no longer licenses them
As well as these Saunas there are many independent Edinburgh models working in the city selling sex to men and women in homes and hotels. There is also a thriving Edinburgh escort touring circuit.

Parlours and Saunas Legality in Edinburgh
All these Saunas advertise openly in directories and will have large signs outside their doors. Everyone knows they are selling sexual services. Strictly what they do is breaking the law. Edinburgh though has taken a positive step by licensing these premises and allowing them to operate. The result is there is less dangerous street prostitution in Edinburgh than in Glasgow where these premises are regularly closed down. This though is now a grey area after the council was forced to stop licensing the saunas, and the police raided them. They are still operating, but for how long.
Men visiting these premises are not breaking the law. Visiting a Brothel in Edinburgh is safe, and importantly ethical. Though Edinburgh allows these places to run, the police still hit hard and close down premises that are using trafficked women, as happened a couple of years ago in Leith.
What to expect from an Edinburgh Escort Sauna?
Saunas in Edinburgh are a little different from most of those in the South. Many have a man at the entrance, and not a woman. Don't be put off by this. Generally, he is a nice chap and can give you quite good advice. I also believe he is more likely to provide some extra security to the women. Talking of security, most will be able to view you before letting you into the establishment.
You will have to pay to enter. Normal fees are £20 for 30 minutes, £30 for an hour. This gives you the right to have a shower, and use the Sauna. Yes, some premises do have actual Saunas. Some have very good Saunas, showers and changing facilities with good lockers.
You will normally then wait in a communal lounge, and be offered soft drinks. While you wait, you can chat with the other clients and the women who are waiting to be picked. This can be a pleasurable pass time, and you can spend quite a long evening in the place. Don't be put off by the other blokes, they know what you are after, just as you know. If this is not quite your scene, then no worry, phone up and book your girl ahead of time. Walk in and straight down to their room. I promise you will be missing out on a very pleasurable experience comparing each girl before coming to the decision of whom you want for some pleasure.
There are shower facilities in the saunas. Some have them shared, and others have showers in each room. Use them, the women will like nice clean men, as you will expect a nice clean woman and not one smelling of the previous man.
You will choose your woman and be led to their room. All with beds, many with showers, TV, porn, music. You will now pay the woman the fee. Somewhere in the £40 region for 30 minutes, extras may be added for Anal sex. Have fun, but respect her. She may be doing this as a job, but she is a human being and should be respected like everyone else. My best friends are sex workers, they have a very enlightened attitude to life which we can all learn from.
Afterwards, have a shower, and leave with a smile on your face.
The choice at an Edinburgh Escort Sauna
I cannot give a comparative guide, having not visited all the places. Some are small establishments with just 2-3 women working, others are larger, with over 10 working. Depending on the place, each girl may have her own room for the shift or may share the room with others. I like the places where the girl has her room, because once you have chosen her, then its straight to her room and all her things are there ready.

2nd May 2019 Man facing jail for making cash out of subletting three Dundee flats to sex workers
This is where the law is an arse. Sex workers can't easily rent flats from letting agents on short leases, so they have to resort to someone else to do this for them. In the end, the intermediary is going to charge a high rental. The high rentals are though are probably justified, there are times when he can't rent it, and there is always the risk of the law.
His not guilty plea to four charges of human trafficking, one of living wholly or in part on the earnings of prostitution and one breach of bail were accepted by the Crown.
If we were more open to sex work, then some third party would not be required to lease flats.

21st April 2019 Calls to reject 'Nordic model' of sex trade laws after increased violence
Campaigners have called on Scotlands parliament to reject a sex work policy which had increased violence against sex workers in Ireland when it was implemented. Charities promoting decriminalisation have said the increase in violence is not surprising and was anticipated. a 2018 study by the French Medecins du Monde found the Nordic model implemented in Sweden had a detrimental effect on escorts health and safety. Glasgow-based sex worker Megara Furie said that her experiences of the Nordic model in Ireland and Northern Ireland had left her “fearful for the first time in a career spanning almost nine years”.

29th March 2019 £1m backing for a project to help Scotland's 1500 online sex workers
The 1500 Scottish sex workers who use the internet to advertise are being given help via an app and online support services. A one million pound scheme aims to help vulnerable women involved in sex work. The initiative is from Sacro and a network of agencies and is funded by the Government Tampon Tax. The aim of the project is to develop an online model that offers one to one chat services online and which can signpost women to local specialist services.
Sacro is a Scottish community justice organisation which provides services related to community justice, including housing the Another Way project, which provides outreach to sex workers. Sex worker-led organisations have since raised concerns that they were not consulted or involved in the development of this project, which risks creating a less meaningful service or duplicating existing services.

Sex worker-led organisations, such as the National Ugly Mugs, Scotpep and Umbrella Lane have raised concerns as they have not been consulted in the design of the project. Dr Raven Bowen, CEO of NUM, said: ‘Sex workers are capable of designing services and eliminating conditions that contribute to exploitation in their industries. We must use our resources as directed by sex workers. Sex workers use the organisations and the services that they trust. They are not service-resistant, they resist their exclusion.’
A sex worker condemned the initiative in the National. She felt the money could be better spent. The organisation receiving the money aims to get sex workers out of prostitution and does not support decriminalisation. She also thought the app could be used as a data gathering exercise by the home office.
4th March 2019 Sex workers aim to shape the future of Scotland's prostitution laws
A Glasgow based sex worker was looking to negotiate a better deal and better working conditions. In a 'normal' job, she could have approached a Trade Union. This prompted her to set up her own branch of the GMB in Scotland. There is now a Scottish GMB adult entertainment branch which will represent sex workers across the count. Of course, the union is at odds with the SNP policy of implementing the Nordic Model in Scotland. The new sex workers union argues the Nordic model will fail as many workers have no desire to leave their trade. The Nordic model will also make clients more reticent about passing on their contact details making it harder for sex workers to check their date.

22nd February 2019 Buying sex like ‘renting a film’ for men, former prostitute tells Lib Dems
I was a bit disturbed the Liberal Democrats in Scotland were even having a vote on the Nordic Model. It has been LibDem policy to support total decriminalisation of sex work for many years. A motion had been brought to the party conference to ask the LibDems to support and ask for the Nordic Model in Scotland.
A former sex worker argued for the Nordic Model. (This is not usual, most sex workers, and sex workers rights organisations such as ScotPep, SWARM, ECP and IUSW support decriminalisation). A former police officer, Wendy Chamberlain, said criminalisation of any part of sex work does not work in practice, and the attention of the police should be on criminal organisations. Liberal Democrat activist Caron Lindsay arguing that “at the very least, we should have the liberty to use our bodies in the way that we wish”. “As Liberals, we have huge respect for individuals and their right to make their own choices – they may not be the ones we would make but frankly that is not our business.”
The motion was thrown out.
