A lot of false information and scare articles have been appearing online and further spread by ignorant people who did not read the law.
First of all, if you want to get a female escort job, great. That’s your own choice and if it makes you happy, do it! It is perfectly legal. Being a female escort means that you act as a pretend girlfriend to the client during the period of the services. There is no law saying that it’s illegal to exchange cash for pretending to be a girlfriend of someone else (or a mom or dad or e.t.c. for that matter). So why are there so many scare articles out online telling people that it’s illegal to be an escort or that escort agencies are illegal? This is because they are targeting readers who want ‘juicy’ news without thinking whether it’s true or not. If you read closely, 100% of those articles will just write that a certain agency was busted for illegal vice activities. It was NOT busted because it was an escort agency. For instance, is an accounting company legal? Yes if it’s registered and stick to the laws! However, if it helps to launder cash and cook accounts, it’s illegal!
Therefore, if you’re asking, the answer is yes and escort agencies are legal, if they are registered and only sell companionship and escorts are legal as long as they work with registered agencies in Singapore and provide romantic companionship only (no sexual services). You can get such a legal social escort job here. Till date, SG VIP Escorts is one of the rare few legal agencies left in Singapore which does not promote or facilitate vice activities, which means that if you are attractive and join them, you can make all the money since all the money is flowing to them. By being their exclusive escort, you can potentially make a lot (albeit you must be attractive looking).
The conclusion is that being a female escort is perfectly legal in Singapore, however, engaging in vice activities or knowingly joining an unregistered agency is illegal. Now, if you’re still worried, let me put it in another way. Being an accountant is legal in Singapore, but engaging in vice activities like cooking the books or helping a client launder money e.t.c is illegal. Makes more sense to you now? Becoming a female escort is a very lucrative route if you are attractive. Just stick to your job and steer clear of vice activities and life will be smooth.
