Hi there Handsome! I'm so happy you took a moment to stop by, read a bit about me, and take a look at what your fantasy girl actually looks like. Please allow me to introduce myself, I am Olivia, a 25-year-old of Thai and Laos descent. I am incredibly fun and playful and my larger-than-life personality combines with a striking figure that is fit, petite, and voluptuous. Having been born in Connecticut but raised in Vegas, I'm not your typical girl. I like to think that my witty, confident, and very feminine style makes for the perfect companion for any environment or situation. Even though I am a homebody at heart, I love to go watch a live Jazz concert or to do anything outdoors! I take pride in my body and all the hours I put into caring for myself shows. I love to learn and invest in real estate and I greatly admire those who are goal orientated and focused on continually bettering themselves like I am. Now on to the more of intimate picture of what I want and desire. I love when a date likes to linger on all the finer things life has to offer, whether it be a great glass of wine, a delicious cut of meat, or wrapped in an intoxicating bliss found only through working our way up and through the many different levels of passion. After our dinner and time spent with the rest of the world, I like to close the doors and open our minds to all the incredibly different ways we can find pleasure. Some of my favorite things to do are to wear an elegant dress with either nothing, or a naughty piece of lingerie underneath. I so enjoy moving around the room, as I strip piece by piece off myself, giving you a visual treat before your hands ever touch me. From there I will find my way to your side where I will sit on your lap, caressing and undressing you as well. From there... well, the fun really starts to begin! I enjoy nothing more than sinking to my knees and taking you fully into my mouth as I gaze into your eyes. The story that they would tell you is to take it slow and enjoy this pleasure, that we have time to fan the flames building inside and that I WANT to take my time tasting you and having you feel the soft and warm heat. My mouth has been known to work miracles and wonders on all those spots that are tight or stressed. I am a true pleaser. I want you to enjoy MY want and desire to worship YOUR body. I love breast play and you will definitely have your hands full with my 32DDD's! I crave seeing the passion in your eyes as your toes curl before you give yourself over to total surrender. You will have all of my focused attention solely on making our time together a memory you will think about for many more nights to come... So, if you like what you hear and what you see, reach out for a date. I have so many fantasies and YOU play a major role in one. Until then Handsome...

I learned early on, that maintaining an elegant and unassuming outward appearance was the surest way to be free to pursue my wildest fantasies undetected, and escape judgment from those who did not share my proclivities toward the hedonistic. Whilst in pursuit of said adventures, I’ve stumbled into worlds that most never discover. And while I haven’t always known what I’m looking for, I’ve always seemed to know when I’ve found it. Perhaps you can relate. It seems we’re in the same place now, searching for adventure down rabbit holes on the internet.

I want to get to know you, to learn what makes you tick, so let’s indulge in Champagne, an exquisite meal, and each other.

Hello darling, Thank you for visiting my profile and allowing me to introduce myself. My name is Sheba, a ex analysts with an Economic and Business degree from a leading London university, currently studying underwriting. I also model here in London (brains and beauty). I would consider myself an itinerant and often travel for leisure. I’ve seen 5 out of the 7 wonders of the world, I’ve attempted (unsuccessfully) to climb Kilimanjaro, wondered around the remarkable countryside to discovering Rock-Hewn Churches situated below ground. Outside travelling, I enjoy my hometown London where I frequently dine at Zuma, Scott’s or coffee at Sotheby’s while enjoying the auctions and the artwork. If you are interested in an intelligent and extremely attractive Londoner, who I must warn you is highly addictive, then please get in contact but until then des bisous x
Deviant nerd and part time libidinous bad girl. Ever curious, athletic, well spoken and well read...I hope for authentic chemistry, mutual exploration and escape. Warm, energetic and exuberant in life and in bed I am seeking connection and thrills..Whilst my pleasures and likes are extensive and varied, from the intimate to the wild and definitely kinky, I am hoping for intimate, personal connection and more than a little decadence and adventure. I get serious thrills and energy from this world and indulgent misbehaviour. Outside of this hobby I am fairly dedicated to literature, politics, chasing the sun and a healthy lifestyle with enough high quality pleasure and hedonism to satisfy and excite. I am seeking as much of a good time from this as you are. I like gyming hard, long runs and riding. I really enjoy exertion. I also value and enjoy nature and long country walks, good food with good conversation, mountains, coastlines and any new sources of exhilaration you could suggest.. In new lovers I seek quality above quantity.. I am a low volume companion hoping to connect authentically with a few smart, interesting individuals looking to make the most out of their time...

Let me know when you'd like to meet, how long you had in mind and what you're imagining our meeting would include...

I enjoy taking romantic walks, lazy days on the beach, french macarons and white wines. We will share each other's deepest desires, creating lasting memories together, relaxing and enjoying spending time getting to know each other and building our friendship together.

Do you remember the last time a woman stopped you dead in your tracks? You take a moment to caress her flowing form with your gaze, landing on the delicate curve where her hips meet her waist. You wonder what it would be like to feel her smooth, radiant skin underneath your own. You imagine her scent – soft, velvety, a hint of rose – intoxicating you as her lips gently graze the nook of your neck. She glides past and you feel your heartbeat race as you yearn for this ethereal creature whom, perhaps in another lifetime, could truly bring you to life... What if I were to tell you that you needn't rely on fantasy? That your deepest, hedonistic desires could be fulfilled, that a moment with this sweet, sensual siren was within reach? All it takes is a simple email. I'll be waiting. Yours, Sephra x _ A truly empathic soul, I thrive on cultivating intimate, stimulating connections. Attraction, for me, lies beyond the aesthetics – the most erotically attractive qualities in a person are their kindness, authenticity, wit. And me? You'll find me to be genuine and engaging, elegant and refined, present and intuitive. I am overflowing with love and sweet to the core. Genuine companionship is deeply natural to me and I treasure the relationships that unfold here. In my company, you will feel seen, heard, held and nurtured. I'm certain we'll have an unforgettable time together. But, of course, don't simply take my word for it... "Pure witchcraft in the bedroom. She's officially ruined all women for me." - S., July 2021 "Best, and I mean really the best Girlfriend Experience I've ever had. She's ruined me for others, I felt like I was in a dream. If you are looking for a high-end companion, look no further. She's the one you want." - Perb.cc, June 2021 "Sephra is the gold standard for The Girlfriend Experience. She's more sensual and loving than any real girlfriend I've ever had." - Perb.cc, June 2021 "To condense the experience that I had with this amazing woman into a review would in no way come close to actually being with her. As far as physical appearance, she is beautiful. She has maybe the most gorgeous, mesmerizing eyes I’ve ever seen. But as outwardly attractive as Sephra is, it is only a reflection of the inward beauty she displays through her kindness, patience, warmth, authenticity, and joy, to list a few traits." - N., May 2021 "Let me get this out of the way, if I were to die now, I will have no regrets; I have already met one of the most sensual, sexy, feminine, beautiful, intelligent, attentive, and elegant young woman ever in my life. If you think you have already met a next level Girlfriend Experience, you haven't, Sephra will take you to that next level. Your standards will be raised after meeting her." - Perb.cc, March 2021 "I highly recommend anybody to book Sephra Grace if your budget allows it or if you are looking for one of Vancouver's best-kept secrets. One of the best GFE experiences I have had in my now five years of partaking." - Perb.cc, March 2021 "One of the few women who stopped me dead in my tracks of how gorgeous she is. Highly intelligent, a genuine heart and a polished experience and amazing service. Do not hesitate if you're curious and on the fence, she is definitely one to experience. I'm genuinely smiling thinking about how lucky we are to have a woman of such calibre here." - Perb.cc, March 2021

Well, Hello and welcome to my profile. I presume you arrived here enticed by a desire to indulge in new adventures and explorations. Quite possibly you are hoping to embark on such a journey with someone with similar inclinations. And if that is, in fact, the case, then you have certainly come to the right place and found the right person. People who have gotten to know me have described me as having an infectiously positive and down-to-earth demeanor, self-deprecating sense of humor, and a playful sexiness that’s hard to resist. Another frequent compliment is that I am a breath of sunshine whose genuineness invites conversation and new-found friendships wherever I go. In broad strokes, I am the ideal, curvaceous girl next door. While I happily agree with this characterization, I also am more substantive, accomplished, and multi-faceted than a convenient label. In fact, I am a university-educated, well-traveled woman of multi-cultural Mediterranean descent with a passion for life lived to its fullest and a taste for glamour and adventure. I live by the philosophy that everything is more fun when you’re not the only one having it. So let’s also have some fun, collect new and exciting experiences, make lasting memories, and tell the stories to recount it…unless, of course, you want to keep some of our adventures a delicious secret just between ourselves… Duos: If you are looking for a Ménage à trois, I am bisexual and love to play with my friends! I offer duos (or trios if you are feeling a little frisky). Contact me directly for more infos about my duo partners :)

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Katie, hailing from the East Coast, now resident in London. My reputation precedes me, but in case you didn’t know, I’m one of London’s premier companions and BDSM aficionados – and I’m here to play! I have a taste for the finer things in life, which often leads me astray… and since you’re here, I can only assume that you’re fond of luxury and adventure, too. The first thing you’ll notice about me is my very cheeky smile, closely followed by my big hazel eyes and tiny, willowy frame. I have long, dark hair, a nice tight butt, and long slender legs (they look spectacular in heels). My wardrobe is classic and feminine, but I love to play dress-up; I also happen to love seductive, revealing lingerie… I have been known to play a variety of roles, but I am naturally submissive. I have a terrible habit of misbehaving, and I can certainly imagine that some might see fit to correct me accordingly. Don’t let my small frame fool you – I may look delicate, but you’ll be surprised how tough I can be when it comes to taking my punishment. Whilst I specialise in BDSM, I’m very much available for more vanilla encounters too. Whether you seek an intimate, sensual night in or something more exotic, drop me a line… and let me show you how we do things in New York.
Hi there, and thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little more. Where to begin? My name is Olivia and I’m 27 years old, with a beautiful curvaceous figure. I am your perfect, elegant, fun, friendly and warm high class & luxury professional companion. I have a true passion for life and all the pleasures that it brings, and I love that I can play a part in that for someone else. I am well educated, with my BA and MA and I'm sure many people would describe me as an incredibly intelligent and feminine young woman. I adore passion in all of it's forms and I strive to ignite that with those who choose to spend time with me. Look to me as your good friend, close confident and erotic companion. Physically, I am a tall 5"10 brunette with a gorgeous hourglass figure who knows how to flatter it. I pride myself in always dressing for the occasion as I love leaving a lasting impression via either my outer or underwear. I truly love being a gentleman's treat to himself whether it's to relax after a hard days work, or just take some much needed time for himself in this hectic world we live in. Regardless, I can promise to leave you with a smile on your face and memories only you and I will know about. I get asked from time to time what my biggest turns on are and I have always given the same answer. The art of good conversation and good humour is one of the greatest aphrodisiacs for me. When 2 people connect verbally, that can translate into something truly passionate and steamy that is unmatched and unrivalled. I genuinely love being a man's perfect girlfriend experience as I make an ideal partner in a domestic and sexual sense and when that is accompanied with a great connection - the fireworks are unstoppable. I have a love for theatre and the arts, as well as being a total foodie, so please feel free to ask what restaurants or shows I currently have on my bucket list! I am also a keen young business woman who loves to talk to others with similar passions. So why don't we have a luxurious working lunch, with some enticing dessert in your room. Whether you're looking for a carefree, fun young woman to whisk away and forget your worries, or a sensual and passionate companion - I assure you our time together will be hard to forget. ♥
Hello gentlemen! What a pleasure to meet you. I'm Zoe Red - an elegantly poised British mixed Black-Oriental high class ebony escort and travel companion based in London, but available worldwide by invitation or Fly-me-to-you. Although British bred and educated, I am an exotic Black escort of mixed African and Asian heritage. For the curious, I was born to West African and South East Asian parents, and spent my early years between Africa and UK, before returning permanently to London, where I did my studies and graduated from a leading university. Against this background and having graduated from an English university, you would find me quite cosmopolitan, feminine, open, and interesting, with a rather terrible British sense of humour. I laugh and giggle a lot more than most, and have a down-to-earth, bubbly, and friendly personality... and perhaps a little too chatty? I am told I have a cute mixed British accent that often comes out after a few glasses of champagne... Or before, depends on the mood... 😂 In any case, if you are a gentleman with a fond appreciation for accents, you just might fall in love with mine. I offer a unique and luxurious girlfriend experience to gentlemen who seek genuine chemistry, intimacy, connection, and that elusive spark, and I make the perfect date to gentlemen who desire a beautiful, sophisticated and naughty company for dinner and social dates, overnights, travels or brief encounters. I cater exclusively to mature gentlemen and couples from all walks of life, who enjoy the finer things in life, are respectful, open-minded, have a great sense of humour, and know how to treat a lady. I am a fun, sexy, and affectionate ebony girlfriend that you can unwind with after business hours and play with my exotic hourglass body, large juicy 32GG breasts, soft smooth skin, tiny waist, and a big booty that will drive you absolutely wild! I love sex, with deep passionate kisses, adore intimacy and cuddles, and enjoy dirty sloppy blow jobs and receiving pleasures. Whether we are meeting in London, your city, travelling, or flying somewhere for a romantic date, I assure you a relaxed, passionate, and unrushed girlfriend experience that will leave you fully satisfied and craving more, with a warm glow and massive grin for days! ... And hopefully me too! 😀 Please visit my website for booking. I can't wait to meet you... Yes, you! See you soon. Zoe

Hey there, So happy you are here :) I am Blaire, and I specialize in making others feel comfortable and joyful with grace, elegance, and edge, whatever form that may take.

I'm that smart alternative babe you always had a secret crush on :) Only I am not scary, I just want to spend some time with you... I am available for dates, good conversations, adventures, GFE, BDSM exploration and more.

A warm welcome to my profile! I'm Diana; a sensual girl with full breasts (UK 34E / US 34DDD), a small waist, toned legs and a hourglass body type with sexy feminine curves. But, what really make me special is my intellect, my playfulness, my passion and my heart. I'm in my middle 20’s and a graduate in social science. People and intimacy have always been of interest to me, and I like to make those around me smile and think in better ways. At the core, I'm an affectionate, devoted lover who genuinely delights in giving and receiving. I enjoy taking the time and never like to feel rushed – especially at the outset of something new and exciting. Compatibility and building a connection are important to me. As for my origins, I came from a beautiful country in central Europe but relocated to England four years ago to further my studies. In the meantime, I made good friends here and fell in love with London city. On my personal website, you can find further details about me, the experience and my hobbies - plus a few videos, selfies and more photos. www-diana-rose.com Diana x
We love hearing from people who use and love Tryst! Here are some of the things people have said about us.
I am so grateful to be addressed with respect and kindness here. I don’t know if you’ve ever had to email with other ad sites, but they’re not playing the same game Tryst is.
August 2021 | via Email
I love how easy it is to navigate while also giving me all the information I need and making me feel safe and secure.
June, 2021 | via Email
I really appreciate your dedication and helping me even on a Sunday!!! You're amazing

Tryst is lovely and the team has created an outlet that has such an impact, that they drive not only providers to proudly use their website, but also professional and sophisticated clients alike. You create class and help uncover the sexy, empowered side of independent sex work.

We know how daunting it can be to see a sex worker for the first time, so we’ve put together a super handy Client Guide to help ensure everything runs smoothly. Here are a few quick tips about what to expect!
Many workers will require their clients to submit themselves to some level of screening. This process will vary from sex work to sex worker and will often involve some form of identification.
Many workers prefer cash payments. But some may have other preferences for how they receive payments and deposits, such as via crypto-curency.
Just as many other freelancers, sex workers do not work 24/7 and may not be available exactly when you want them. Please be courteous towards their listed availabilities and allow a reasonable amount time for them to respond.
Sex workers possess the courage to challenge societal norms in their pursuit of work. As we embrace the uncomfortable and examine our choices, we challenge poorly constructed traditional behaviours and beliefs. This disruption allows for new solutions, tolerance of differences, and more loving culture. Difficult conversations are more effortless with open minds.

I absolutely love my cat - I feel like she’s my top interest and most of my time and love goes to her! I’m really into cozy video games like animal crossing and cattails. I’ve been gifted game systems and merch from clients to feed this nerdy side! I’m also a big music lover so karaoke and playing guitar are fun.

When everyone else thinks your boobs are great, but you don’t…who’s correct? And who has the final say?
Whenever my job is mentioned in newspapers, blogs, or magazines, the same tropes tend to pop up: moral panic, drug abuse, violence.
The criminalisation of sex work needlessly harms vulnerable people. Advocates for change have touted the legalisation of sex work as the best way to achieve harm minimisation against. However, creating a narrow path of ‘legal’ sex work necessitates the creation of illegal sex work which presents the same issues that we have now. The so-called ‘Nordic’ model that some nations in Europe have adopted, does not criminalise providers but instead targets clients. The model has been proposed in some areas of the United States in an attempt to create safer working conditions for providers. However, it has been shown to exacerbate dangerous issues for workers, as clients are forced to break the law and workers could be targeted for encouraging criminal behaviour. Clients, having already broken the law to engage a provider, are more likely to commit further crimes or take advantage of vulnerable workers.
There are wonderful grass roots, peer-led sex worker organisations across the world doing important work, not only to keep sex workers safe, but also providing those who have been in exploitative situations with the resources to help them leave or re-enter the sex industry if they wish. A full list of local organisations and a little about who they are can be found in our sex worker resources section. Below we have put together a few simple ways you can help sex workers move towards a fairer working environment.
We are finally starting to see more public awareness of the difficulties sex workers face thanks to a worldwide movement of incredible sex work organisers. We strongly encourage connecting with your local sex work or harm reduction organisation. Many are looking for volunteers to help with outreach or organisation. If there isn’t a local peer-led group in your area, you can always donate to nation wide projects such as SWOP USA, Scarlet Alliance, Aotearoa New Zealand Sex Workers' Collective, European Sex Workers' Rights Alliance or other harm reduction organisations.
We have seen a rise in the number of organisations that are active in the sex industry that don’t have sex workers interests at heart. Often these groups seek to “rescue” sex workers claiming to be “Anti-trafficking” organisations. Many of these organisations advocate against sex worker interests and cause more harm than good to the community and victims of exploitation and human trafficking.
Another form of violence all sex workers experience is stigma. Harmful narratives around sex work are still being perpetuated by the media. Their aim is to be sensationalistic and evoke disgust and shame. Sex workers face the real world consequences of discrimination. One of the easiest ways to be an ally is to educate yourself and address any prejudices or assumptions you have about sex workers. There are lots of resources available, from articles, blog posts and social media feeds which have been written by sex workers about their lives, needs and concerns. You can read our interviews with sex workers as a great starting point.
These harmful narratives mentioned previously, have been created and are being perpetuated by non sex workers. One way to combat this is by simply including and welcoming sex workers into your spaces.
If you're a reporter: Include sex workers in the development of your piece and follow best practices for reporting on sex work. You'll find a great guide to best practices when reporting on sex work on our blog.
If you're a business owner: Consider overlooking prostitution charges when hiring or create a public inclusivity statement on your website. Many sex worker organisations would be more than happy to assist in this if compensated.
If you are a part of a group which advocates for change: There are sex workers in the communities you advocate for and your organisation should reflect that. Amplify the voices of sex workers in your group and listen to them. If they aren’t out in your organisation yet, connect with your local sex worker organisation and ask them how you can help your organisation be inclusive of sex workers. Sex workers are part of all of these groups and should not be ignored. Ask them to speak on your panels and please make sure you pay them!
Unlike many other advertising platforms, Tryst.link is run by sex workers and technologists as an alternative to sites like Backpage.com and others which have felt the wrath of FOSTA/SESTA. We hold the unique privilege of having direct ties to both the tech and sex industry, which has allowed us to build our products in-house, bootstrapped and without outside funding. We put sex workers first in a way that they haven't been by an escort directory before. We encourage feedback from both workers and clients on what they need and want from the platform and we consistently consult with sex workers and sex worker organisations on the development of our product. We're in it for the long run.
Product: The involvement of sex workers in our product development is vital to ensure that we are helping workers inside our business. We are still a very young project but thus far we have included feature sets that allow more options around gender, and the ability for trans folk to list their gender alongside their trans status if they wish. We also have implemented a free plan which allows those who may not be able to afford it, to have a verified ad. We have in house support which is free for all Tryst members, client or worker.
Financially: As of August 2020, and despite Covid-19, we have supported and donated to over 20 organisations based in harm reduction, sex work and education. You can find a full list of these organisations here. We strongly believe in continuing to give back to this community and helping fund the incredible organisers dedicated to fighting for the rights of sex workers around the globe. These activists are experts in their field and their voices need to be amplified. You can find a full list here.
Activism: We usually like to leave this one to the experts who have overseen the industry for decades, but given our background and expertise in tech, we do often speak on digital rights panels and the like to help bridge the gap between the tech and sex work communities. We believe that many tech founders lack the right education to properly understand the effects of censorship and the erasure of marginalised communities. We hope that by helping and guiding them towards experts and activists that this will lead to long term positive change.
Through the development of Tryst we've worked with a number of wonderful organizations to promote and grow our platform. These are just a handful of the generous sites who have lent a helping hand. From all of us at Tryst, we would like to say thank you!
