What it’s like working in a brothel is often shrouded in myths and stereotypes. This makes it incredibly difficult for women who are wondering if it’s the right choice to get answers. That’s why we’ve turned to some of the current Service Providers and asked them what it’s really like and what advice they have for you.
How can you tell a good brothel from a bad one?
As looks can often be deceiving, it’s not always easy to know a good brothel from a bad one straight away. Although, as time passes it’ll become apparent, it’s best to make the right choice early on. So, we asked women who have been through this before for their insider tips.
“If they don’t have clean facilities, run!”
“When you go for an interview, you should also watch how they treat the ladies. If they have good facilities for the ladies to use and they have a good support system in place, you know you’ve found the right place. Don’t be afraid to ask.”
“As well as a hygienic environment, I look for a brothel that is well managed and secure. I find being able to see a client before I meet them very reassuring.”
“I’d make sure to do my online research. If a brothel is active online, through their website and social media, it’s a good sign even before I meet them.”
“I’ve always looked for brothels with a female management, particularly management who have been where we are.
What difference does a female-run brothel make?
Stereotypically, brothels are run by men and for the benefit of men. However, in reality, this isn’t always true. Female-run brothels are becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason.
“I think the most important difference is that I don’t feel exploited while I’m working in a female-run brothel.”
“What I’ve noticed is that brothels run by women who used to be in my position are more understanding of issues that I’ve been through and I know that the other ladies are appreciative of that as well.”
“This is going to be a reoccurring thing but it’s definitely the ongoing support you get from management.”
What would you recommend for making a good impression during client introductions?
Being able to make a good first impression is crucial for being successful while working in a brothel. While it’s always best to find what your unique style is, it’s always good to have an idea of where to start. The ladies gave us some insight into what they think is most important for making a good first impression.
“Quite simply, confidence. Use your body language to show this, take a seat close to them and make eye contact.”
“I’ve found, personally, that being bright and cheerful works best. I’ll make sure to listen and engage with them, give them a smile and eye contact.”
“Men are visual creatures; having a tasteful, well-groomed, feminine appearance and immaculate personal hygiene will make a great first impression.”
“You’d be surprised how far just listening and talking at their level will take you.”

Here at Ma Belle Cheri, we do the best to look after the Service Providers. From giving support to having strict security policies, it’s you that comes first. Hear from some of the ladies that work here, and why they stay.
“I was originally drawn to Ma Belle Cheri as it’s a female-run brothel. When I’m working here, I don’t feel pressured into anything I’m not comfortable with and I know that the management and reception will support me if I ever need it.”
“As well as being a legal brothel, Ma Belle Cheri give a lot of attention to keeping a high standard of health and safety. This makes me feel more secure and valued when I come to work.”
“I like that I can see clients before my introduction. Not only does this mean I have a chance to prepare but if I know that person, like he turns out to be my doctor or something, I have the opportunity to say so without him knowing.”
“The dressing room and lounge here mean that I’m able to get ready and relax in private. Everything is also kept really clean, which is so important to me.”
“Ma Belle Cheri offer flexible shifts, and being a mum of 2, this means that I can be there for them when they need me. They’ve also been really understanding when there has been a family emergency in the past.”
What is your top tip for people considering working in a brothel?
If you’re considering working in a brothel, you’re likely to have plenty of questions. We’re here to answer all of those questions but we thought we’d ask the ladies what they think you should know at this point.
“I think that if you are going to succeed in this industry, you should have a clear ‘why’. It is that reason that will motivate you each day.”
“It’s all about setting achievable goals. I wanted to get my children through a good school and that not only kept me focused but has given me a great sense of pride that I’ve been able to achieve that.”
“Don’t listen to empty promises. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! And, you must make sure the brothel you choose is a legal one.”
“Treat this just like you would any other job; create a routine and stick to it.”
