For the most part, it was incredible.

Upon reflection though, and especially now that I am coaching other older men interested in following a similar path, as well as clients who have been involved with other escorts or thinking of hiring them, I am more aware than ever that everything was not as wonderful as it may have seemed.

I like to describe the challenge of managing my own emotions while also providing support for my clients as juggling on a rollercoaster.
