When I first got into being an escort (the full story's in my About Me section), I was stripping in a Vegas club. That was the first time that I was confronted with one of the most annoying questions of my life. The question has followed me ever since. I'd say about 60 percent of my clients ask it. And I never give them the answer they're looking for.
The annoying question is: What's Your Real Name?
My answer: What do you think... What do I look like to you?
Years back, when I was a stripper, I almost used my real name as my stage name. Then, the manager pulled me aside and advised me otherwise. (Thank you!) He told me that a Vegas girl should never tell a man her real name and demanded that I pick a stage name for my own safety.
I'd seen movies and heard jokes about stripper names, but I never really thought about it before. The clock was ticking, a big burly (very nice, but cross) man was looking at me and I was under pressure. I told him I'd go with "Em." He misheard me, or misunderstood I guess, and thought I'd said "M." He told me that a letter wouldn't do, and that he'd put me down as Molly. And so, Molly was born.
That first night, I was asked what my real name was. I've been asked at least weekly (when I'm on the job) ever since. At first, I didn't know what to say, but these days I just let the client guess. I ask what I look like to them. When they answer, I'll tell them that they can pretend the name they picked is my real name. If they persist, I politely explain why it's dangerous for me to go around telling people my real name. It lets people find the real me online, for example. You know, the FaceBook profile that my Mom is friends with, or maybe a fashion website I own (don't waste your time looking, that's fictional). That opens me up to stalkers and other trouble. No thank you.
I'm not going to share my real name on this blog, either. That's probably the most dangerous thing I could do, thinking about it. What I will tell you is that, when other Vegas escort girls pretend to tell clients their real name, they're lying too. I once knew a girl who had four fake names. Yes, four. A client would ask her real name, she'd lie, he'd say he didn't believe her, so she'd cop to lying and tell him her next "real" name. If he still didn't believe her, she'd tell him how perceptive he is, and that the name she just gave him is her middle name, and then she'd give him another fake name as her "real" first name. That's confusing to type, it's confusing to read and it's way too confusing for me to bother with. I'd rather be upfront with my clients and tell them that they will never know my real name.
So, there you have it. A Vegas escort girl almost never reveals her real name, even when you think she has.
