A Tryst with Dallas Escort Sofia Barcellos

. 5 min read

Tell us your story, how did you get into the industry and what has your journey looked like thus far?

I got into the industry through curiosity. I was in college and made a profile on sugar daddy websites (the usual story) & soon realized that it was very emotionally draining for me. It was also hard to find quality people who weren’t trying to scheme.

I graduated from school, moved back to Texas and started researching the industry more in depth - I browsed other girls ads, I looked at their websites, I looked at their screening practices, etc.  I knew I needed to save money to have a professional website, photos, and ads, so I responded to an ad posted about working for an agency. I worked with them for a few months and when I was finally comfortable, I put my own ad out and officially became independent.

I still ask myself why I even decided this was an industry I wanted to get into, but I’ve always been drawn to it, so I figured I might as well plunge into it and luckily for me, it’s been an amazing experience for the last 4 years.

What weird food combinations do you really enjoy?

A big salad and french fries. It’s very counterproductive, but It’s a craving for me.

What are some of your hobbies and interests outside of work?

I absolutely love music; I attend as many shows and music festivals as possible. I enjoy anything outdoors; I love hiking, camping, being out on the lake, anything involving my dog etc. I travel as much as I can, I’m constantly thinking of new business ideas and ways to make them come to life, and spending time with my family and friends.

As sex workers we face a number of challenges in our line of work. What is one issue you care about and how do you think your clients can help sex workers?

The whore-archy - I’m tired of the separation within sex workers. Some people like to rank it based on how much a provider charges & it tends to divide us. We are all in this together. I do understand some of us are more privileged than others, but no matter the situation, we need to support each other. Not divide each other up. We all come in different sizes, shapes, colors, backgrounds, etc and we should see that as something wonderful because we are in an industry that provides a niche for anyone and everyone. Just because a girl charges a lot less or more than you, I can promise you it has no affect on your business even though you think it does. A client will see who they want to see.

Clients should never go into a session and gossip about other providers they have seen or try and dig for info on people we are friends with in the industry. If a client needs to find someone within their budget, then look for someone within your budget and don’t criticize other providers for how they run their business. Just because you don’t think “they’re worth it”, many other people do.

People need to learn to stay in their own lane and mind their own business.

What’s one thing about you that surprises people?

How genuine and how silly/goofy I am - I have a resting b*tch face, nonchalant about almost everything, so I can come off as intimidating to a lot of people. I’m genuine with everyone because that’s just how I was raised and when people meet me, they realize you can’t take me at surface value. I’ll talk to most anyone, but picky with who I spend my time with, so once people get past being intimidated by me, they quickly come to terms that I’m kind to a fault, my loud laugh is contagious, and I just want the best for people. I want everyone to be happy and I want them to not feel alone.

If you could instantly become an expert in something, what would it be and why?

I would become an expert at being a pilot. Because then I can just get in a plane and travel wherever I want to.

What’s your one go-to piece of advice for workers just starting out?

Be yourself.

I made the mistake of branding myself like the girls I looked up to and I realized that I wasn’t attracting the clientele I wanted nor was I making ends meet financially. In no way am I saying these girls are doing it wrong, they just aren’t me. They don’t look like me (body shape, skin color, etc) , they don’t have the same personality as me, they don’t live were I live, and the list goes on. You have to be yourself and do what works for you. I understand we have different personas, but you have to make sure you can sprinkle something genuine to make sure you don’t get lost in this industry.

What has escorting taught you about sex and human sexuality?

Escorting has taught me that there’s no “normal”. It’s taught me that sex can be naturally healing and that having sex is a big connection between two people. Meaning, the energy exchange is real and can be good or bad.  It has also taught me that we are all mammals and that we weren’t meant to physically be with one person for the rest of our lives. The connection between to people is much more mental than it is physical.

A movie I can watch over and over without ever getting tired of: Pineapple express

My dream date would consist of: Being somewhere on the beach, drinking wine, and talking about our wants, desires, our wildest dreams, and making a connection that makes the world go round. Sounds very “hippy” of me, but I love being connected the the earth and people and being at the beach is my happy place.

The nicest place I've ever been: Fancy places are cool, but Costa Rica will forever be my favorite, It’s paradise. And the people are absolutely amazing!

My favourite restaurant is: I’m a foodie, so this is hard question, but I would have to go with Uchi. Sushi is my absolutely favorite!

If you were going to buy me a drink you should buy me a: A glass of Rosé or a bottle of Ace of Spades Rosé ;)
