I am Miss Bel, an independent escort based in Tokyo, Japan – the passionate girlfriend you’ve always dreamt of. I’m originally from Portugal, and am trilingual (Portuguese, Japanese and English). Outside of escorting, I am a psychology student and love reading over a cup of coffee.
How long have you been in the industry?
Just over two years – my very first booking was on Christmas night in 2019. I wrote about this experience on my blog, if you’d like to read about it in detail!
How and why did you decide to get into it?
To be honest, I chose to begin escorting because I was struggling financially after breaking up with my partner at the time. I didn’t want to spend long days away from my family at work every day. I had the idea of becoming an escort, which appealed to me as it meant I had the time to go back to university, while also getting to make wonderful new connections with clients.
Have you ever had second thoughts about this business?
Of course, I think that’s normal with any job. Before I began in the industry, I had friends who were escorting, and they had told me about some of the difficulties they had. This is why I took a lot of time to consider whether escorting was something I really wanted to do before I started in the industry.
What is the best part of your work? What do you love the most about it?
The financial freedom and the relationships I’ve formed with my clients. I’m so lucky that escorting allows me to earn money while also having time to spend with my loved ones and be able to go back to school. I am so grateful to my clients who make this possible!
What has been one of the best or funniest moments in your work?
I love that as an escort I often meet people I would never meet otherwise. One of my fondest memories (although I have had many) is a date where me and my client ended up singing together and talking about American comics. It might seem like a small thing, but those moments of genuine connection are what I truly love.
Have you ever dealt with a ‘bad’ client? What happened?
Yes, it has happened a couple of times – things like clients overstaying their welcome or asking for unprotected intercourse. These are not gentlemen I like to spend time with, so I simply don’t see them anymore.
Has being an escort given you more opportunities than you might have had otherwise? Can you explain?
Escorting has given me the opportunity to go back to school to study psychology, which is wonderful. It also means that I have met people and built connections with clients that would have never happened otherwise. It’s quite a unique job in that way – I don’t think I could have that kind of experience in another type of job.
Do you have any advice for clients?
Firstly, it’s important to read the escort’s advertising and website. This is important because it tells you about the type of person the escort is and what they can offer you – we want to make sure you have a wonderful time and that we are a good match! It also helps if you book in advance, as this allows me to prepare for you. If you feel nervous, I think a longer date (over an hour) can be helpful as it allows us some extra time to connect and get to know one another. Finally, don’t be hesitant to take a shower! Showering together can be so much fun.
What makes you say ‘I’d love to see this client again?
I really enjoy dates where we have good conversations. To me, good communication is such an aphrodisiac. I also really enjoy it when a gentleman asks for consent before initiating – it makes me feel comfortable, which is a big turn-on.
Do you have a bucket list? What’s on it?
I’ve never written one! But I would love the chance to travel to some new countries (pandemic permitting) and also go to some concerts of my favorite R&B artists.
Do you find that a lot of clients enjoy making sure you have a good time or are most just concerned about getting what they want?
Yes, clients often make sure I’m having a good time, each in their own way. For example, clients often ask if I am enjoying our date. Some gentlemen make tea and snacks for us, others make sure their place is clean and comfortable for when I arrive. I am very grateful for these gestures.
What is the plan for the future? What next?
I plan to continue escorting and building meaningful relationships with my clients, while I also concentrate on school and spend time with my family and friends. I also plan to continue studying English so I can have deeper conversations with my dates (although they tell me I have a sexy accent and don’t ever want me to change it!)
