The chaos of touring

Here is a timeline of events for my last tour to Launceston on the 22nd and 23rd. It is not unusual and I’m not at all annoyed at clients but thought it would be interesting to see behind the scenes if you aren’t a touring escort and are wondering what I do with my time.

Background: I travel to Launceston about once a month but not on a fixed date. I wait until I get some requests and plan around them. Launceston is a small market and I’ve found from previous experience this approach is the only way I cover my costs let alone make a profit. I do outcalls on all dates, incalls are only available after check in time on the first day to just before checkout on the second day because I work from hotels when I’m not in Hobart. These are only the enquiries related to the Launceston tour. The day before I was due to be there I was flooded with fake bookings for Hobart on the 22nd.

Early March 

Receive enquiry #1 for Launceston. They will contact me to confirm


Receive enquiry #2 for Launceston on the morning of the 23rd. Booking is made and that takes my availability for late morning on the second day

I set tour dates as the 22nd and 23rd

Enquiry #3 Client I have seen before requests an extended booking on the evening of the 22nd but will confirm early next week.

Receive enquiry #4 for Launceston. I confirm. They book. I request a deposit. I have to modify the deposit page on my website to provide a method they can use. About 3 hours work including research and communication. This takes my earliest availability for the first day

All enquiries early this week are told I’m probably booked out but to check early next week


#3 lets me know he can’t make it

Adjust twitter, Scarlet Blue, website, Cracker to say I am now available on the evening of the 22nd


Turn down 4 hours of work in Hobart because I will be in Launceston


Receive enquiry #4 for extended booking on the evening of the 22nd. Booking accepted, I was tired and didn’t request a deposit.

Change twitter, website, cracker to say I am no longer available for this tour

Enquiry #5 for Launceston booking that evening. I am in Hobart


Enquiry #4 cancels

Change twitter, website, cracker to say I am now available again in the evening

Enquiries #6, #7 classic timewater

Enquiry #8 for services I don’t offer and wanting to know where I am staying. I don’t answer

Enquiry #9 for booking now but I am eating dinner


Enquiries #10, #11, #12 for bookings in Launceston while I am driving back to Hobart

I never heard from enquiry #1 again. I had two bookings. I covererd my hotel and travel costs but lost more by being away from Hobart and did not make my budget (to pay rent, bills, mortgage) that week.

Thank you

I’ve had a little bit of a blip. I’ve blogged about depression before and talked about it many times. And so yes I’ve had a little bit of a blip. I’m saying a little bit because I was still able to function for the most part and I’ve seen the finality of the severe end of the scale and don’t want to diminish the suffering that is happening for the people who are there. But I thought I’d like to describe what it was I went through.
There was no good or beauty in the things I tried to do. Internally all I could see were faults and negatives. I was doing *everything* wrong. I thought I was not up to par in bookings despite the amazing feedback I was getting from clients old and new. I couldn’t shoot new content because I couldn’t see the merit in any photo or video I took. For example I thought the video this still is from was irredeemably awful. I nearly threw it out and it certainly wasn’t useable. I could not see any merit in it at all, the angles were bad, the lighting was awful, I was woeful. (I’ve since edited it and it’s actually one of my favorites!). At work I was presented immaculately and my apartment was sparkling. I smiled and laughed and did actually enjoy myself but I did not have the energy to do this enough. At home my animals were cared for and adored, I was not. I crawled into a puddle and stayed there.

So I want to say thank you to the people around me, family, friends and clients. You do not realise it but you were all, without exception, wonderful. Just by being you with your own ups and downs, highs and lows, laughter and tears. If I ever really need help I have professional support systems in place, so please don’t ever worry and don’t ever feel like you need to treat me differently. I love you all and I’m good now xx

Be yourself

When I get asked what is the best way to present myself if I want to make a booking I say just be yourself. If I have declined you as a client it is not a judgement of your worthiness. I have no boundaries based on class, socioeconomic status, race, religion or political affiliations (with the caveat that I am still not accepting clients who are part of federal politics until you start treating asylum seekers with humanity).
I use the way you approach me as a way to decide if I can work with you to provide the service you are seeking. I am not going to waste my energy and good humour or your time and money. In a similar vein just because I advertise my services are available this does not mean I am required to accept you. I can choose who I spend intimacy with and who I allow into my private space. So by being yourself it allows me to begin to decide, not if you have the qualities I desire but if I can be what you are looking for.

Beautiful things

A collation of things I have loved recently. Including dot points because I love them too.


The best Flying Circus

Hi Blog, it’s been awhile. I’ve been cheating on you with Twitter.

I made a big call on twitter recently and named what I thought the best Monty Python Flying Circus sketch is. Avail yourself here and behold

So why would I say this one and not the eternal favourites Dead Parrot or Cheese Shop? Not even Ministry of Silly Walks? Because the fathers of British surrealist humour (the grandfathers being The Goon Show, naturally) have taken their classic pepperpot lady, who is completely nonplussed by a stranger in wet weather gear bursting through her door while she stuffs a chicken with household items, and let’s her narrate the story of her house not being a lifeboat which she later goes on to completely falsify by going out to buy cakes on the lifeboat while the sailors are trying to deal with the new reality of their lifeboat not existing. Fucking genius.

But there’s also the quantum physics of it, what is our reality? Does our world exist if it’s not observed. My world is different to your world because the way we view it shapes it.

Or does it?

And on a more personal note don’t you just love that feeling of lying in someone’s arms and the outside world just disappearing? Maybe it doesn’t disappear though, you could be on a lifeboat.


The topic of selfishness has come up often in the last couple of weeks for me. And you’ll be pleased to know I’m not going to launch into a rant about how bad it is 🙂

No! Selfishness can be a good and healthy thing. Have you ever felt guilty for making time to do something you physically or emotionally needed? Of course you have, we all have. We are taught that the kids come first, that the family is more important than the individual, that the status quo must be maintained, we must do our bit for society. But I firmly believe that the flight attendants have it right, you need to put your own oxygen mask on before helping others. You can’t help anyone if you are passed out from lack of oxygen.


Hi! and and quick update on some changes.

My rates are now back to normal, no more discounts for Hobart outcalls and Melbourne. I am also able to do same day bookings again with 2 hours notice, although I won’t be doing many of these, and occasionally I will advertise (on Scarlet Blue and Available Angels and also on here and Twitter) that I am available now.

And good news for North West Tas, I am planning on heading up your way when I go to Launceston next.


Sometimes I get asked Corrine you do some wonderful fetish bookings, why don’t you have any videos of these topics? Well gentle reader, sit down and I’ll tell you a tale.

When sexworkers (cammers, porn stars, clip makers for example) put together a video to sell online there are a few practicalities to work through first. Where will you sell these clips? You could use any of the many video/clip selling or membership sites by opening an account with them, meeting verification and identification requirements, giving them 30-40% of your income from sales (yes really!) and you’re good to go. Or you could run your own site, work through the requirements of finding a host that allows this, finding a payment processor that will process high risk merchants for online sales (and they charge like a wounded bull, $500/year/credit card you want to accept plus a set up fee of around $500 plus a processing fee around 10-15%. The largest adult payment processor CCBill also don’t offer credit card processing if your business has an Australian address so there’s another hurdle there too) and then you are ready to launch.

OK so we have that done, and here is the but, but there is another layer of requirements to meet. Acceptable use policies (some countries like the UK have restrictions on porn categories too which are another complication but that can be for another time).

Here are the acceptable content rules for clips4sale, the most popular video selling site

  • Intentionally Violating Rules – No content (clips, videos or images) can be sold on Clips4Sale that intentionally violates our stated Rules and Regulations (Ex. You can not knowingly sell a clip with our services the violates any of our rules and then provide a “full, uncut” version outside of Clips4Sale via email or other means, etc.). If you are found doing this your studio and/or master account (all studios) may be permanently closed and/or terminated.
  • No Underage Material Real or Simulated (ex., sex with dolls) – All actors must be and appear 18 years of age or older in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Horror/Snuff – You cannot act out someone being maimed or killed in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Necro (necrophilia) – You cannot have sex with dead people in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Blood – There cannot be any blood or simulated blood shown in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Asphyxiation – You cannot suffocate or insinuate altering someone’s breathing in any way (ex., choking, strangulation, hanging by the neck etc.) in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Animal Sex – There cannot be any sex with animals. Please make sure there are no any animals at all in the clips, videos or images.
  • No Forced Sex – You can not imply someone is being forced to have sex against their will in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Non-consensual Sex – You can’t show someone having sexual intercourse against their will or without their knowledge (ex., they are passed out or sleeping, i.e., their eyes are closed) in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Hardcore Bondage with Sex – You cannot have someone fully bound (both arms and both legs) and penetrate them in any way. No full bondage with penetration of any kind. If someone has all four (4) limbs bound, they cannot be penetrated in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Vomit – You can not show any vomit in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Scat (feces) – There cannot be any feces or simulated feces in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Pissing/Peeing (urine) – There cannot be any peeing on other people or show someone consuming urine in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Fisting – There cannot be vaginal fisting or anal fisting in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Chloroform – You cannot use or imply using any type of chemical to render someone unconscious in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Weapons – There can be no weapons shown on Clips4Sale in any clips, videos or images. This includes prop/fake weapons.
  • No Drugs – There cannot be any drugs shown on Clips4Sale in any clips, videos or images.
  • No Intoxication – Someone cannot be intoxicated during sex in any clips, videos or images. This includes, but is not limited to: Alcohol and all other substances that cause intoxication or can cause someone to be considered as being under the influence.
  • No Crushing – There is to be no crushing of any animals in any clips, videos or images. Such as, but not limited to: crabs, lobsters, spiders, fish, scorpions, lizards, etc.

And these are the applicable sections of CCBills acceptable use policy

  • Marketing the site utilizing content including “Kids”, “Lolita”, “Pedo”, “Peta”, “Peto”, Pre-teen”, “Pedophile”, “Underage”, “Child” or any other words, images, or descriptions that would lead someone to believe that the models are less than 18 years of age is not permitted anywhere on venue including the URL and meta tags.
  • The posting or display of any image or wording depicting or related to extreme violence, incest, snuff, scat or the elimination of any bodily waste on another person, mutilation, or rape anywhere on the site in a sexual or erotic manner, including the URL and meta tags.
  • The posting or display of any image or wording depicting or related to bestiality anywhere on the site including the URL and Meta tags.

A lot of these are completely understandable, the rape, age related, non consensual topics are not ok, never will be. But I’ve had a video removed because I used the term sleep in the title (restless sleep, couldn’t sleep along those lines, sex while asleep is a non consensual activity so the word can’t be used). Consensual non-consent is not allowed, either is hardcore bondage. Interestingly blood is taboo EVEN THOUGH WOMEN ARE DESIGNED TO DO THIS MONTHLY. In the lists are the reasons why I don’t have golden shower videos, even though it is my most popular fetish in a booking, Mastercard and Visa have deemed this unacceptable.

Yes these content rules are set by Visa and Mastercard, and not the host or payment processor.


I’ve been thinking about this post for a LONG time. Finally here it is, touch and it’s importance to us adults and the science of why it is good. I’ve relied heavily on the references at the bottom (ie cut and paste plagiarism) so be sure to check them out if you want further reading.

As well as the normal escort bookings I do less sexual and non sexual bookings too, cuddling, massage, sensation play and so on. And I adore being touched and caressed and massaged. Sometime I feel that sex, while it is wonderful in it’s own right, is an adult way of experiencing touch and connection. On a neurobiological level though there are different mechanisms at play, touch is a lot about the hormone oxytocin and sex is a more complex mix of  oxytocin, dopamine and vasopressin for example. Maybe its more on a cultural level that sex plays this role.

“To touch can be to give life” Michelangelo

Touch is our primary non-verbal way of conveying intimate emotions and as such essential for our physical and emotional wellbeing. Whether a strong handshake, an encouraging pat on the back, a sensual caress, a nudge for attention, a tender kiss, or a gentle brush of the shoulder, physical contact can convey a vitality and immediacy at times more powerful than language. Interpersonal touch provides the most emotional of our tactile experiences. That said, in many situations in the Western world, interpersonal touch can be actively discouraged, often d
