July 2016: Rules Rules Rules

Marike van der Velden is owner of Society Service, the largest high class escortbureau of The Netherlands and author of book Escort Bijbel. Together with high class escort Laura she offers a revealing glimpse into the premier league of seduction.

People often think I navigate the girls all day long, while sipping champagne, dressed in some boudoir outfit, answering the phone with a sensual voice. Nothing is less true. There's quite a big team behind Society Service. I work with people who support me with the website, hosting, automatization and SEO, an accountant, receptionist, HR employee, lawyer, and so on. It's just like a real company. And that's a good thing, because last week I was knocked over by a car. I was very happy my team could take care of most of my tasks so I could have some rest.

Just like any other company I have to deal with laws and regulations, that tend to change rather often. Prostitution is a current issue, there's always something going on. The municipality has thought of something new. To keep my permit, every operator needs to provide a business plan. The format of the municipality makes me laugh and cry at the same time. No, dear civil servant, I have no intention of providing you with an overview of what exactly makes my company so successful, what I do different from competitors and how I do all that. A chat with my lawyer and a few phonecalls with the civil servant made us come to a compromis. If I could motivate why, I wouldn't have to provide sensitive information. If it was going to be a problem, they would let me know. So off I went. A day later I stared at the 15 page document. I will send it, together with a copy of the Escort Bijbel to the municipality. But if anybody will ever read it? I don't think so...

High class escort Laura: "Thank god Society Service takes care of all the administration for me, so I can focus on the more fun sides of being an escort."
