There’s a lot of things that you can learn about or buy that make life as an escort much easier; reading the advice in our adult blog is a one of them, and investing in a great outcall handbag is another.
This topic recently came up on a Saafe forum so I thought I’d expand on it with a few practical tips.
I should start by saying that there isn’t one perfect bag for outcalls because each appointment is different. At any one time you might need to carry cosmetics, toiletries, a phone, keys, cash, condoms, a change of clothes, candles, towels, lube, toys, CD’s or even a small sound system…the list is endless.
A good outcall bag can make light work of all of those things.
There’s no shortage of handbags out there for any sort of budget, so here’s a few pointers on what to look for:
Pockets and Compartments
If you need to carry a lot of items then a bag that has plenty of pockets is a must-have. One of the best around is the appropriately titled ‘Goddess Bag’ from Workplay.
It gives you more than enough room to carry all the essentials and keep them organised, so your lube won’t leak and anything that becomes ‘soiled’ can be kept separate from everything else. Plus, with so many pockets you can hide away the personal items that you don’t really want your client to see.
This bag is ideal because it’s practical, discreet and will fit on an overhead locker on a flight if you need it to.
If you’re not a fan of pockets and just need something roomy that’s perhaps a bit more elegant in its appearance, then there are any number of slouchy shoulder bags available on the high street. If you’re buying one online, search for ‘Bucket’ or ‘Hobo’ bags and you’ll be given lots of choices.
However, when shopping, think about how your bag fastens. I can tell you from experience that if you trip and watch the contents, including your lube and handcuffs, skitter across the marble floor in a hotel reception, you’ll wish you bought a bag that zipped up. You have been warned.
For some appointments it seems like you’d be better off with a transit van than a bag to lug everything around in!
For those kinds of outcalls you could use a backpack as one of the Saafe forum members suggests. However, I rarely meet clients in an outfit that would go well with a backpack and think doing so might draw attention to me unnecessarily.
A wheely suitcase is a better alternative; they go well with anything and won’t kill your back or leave sweaty, scratchy strap marks on your shoulders. Wheely cases are light and easy to drag around and if you meet clients in hotels, can actually help you blend in to the crowd like a regular guest.
If you want one that’s really built to last and which can be secured to keep all your cosmetics, costumes and toys safe, then opt for a hard-shell one. You can go high-end with a brand like Samsonite, but designer labels are better saved for your days off, don’t you think?
Debenhams have a great range of hard-shell wheely cases in all sorts of sizes, colours and designs and currently have a sale on so if you’re quick, you could snap up a bargain.
Do you have a favourite outcall bag? What do you keep in it?! If any of you have an embarrassing bag faux pas you’d like to share we’d love to hear it!
