How to stay out of legal trouble with escorts service in Toronto?

Between 2014 and 2015, Canada’s rather grey sexual services market became had a few more shades of grey added into it when the federal government enforced new laws under the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act aimed at taming the prostitution and eventually ending prostitution in the nation. Although prostitution is legal in Canada, the former laws made everything that surrounded the practice illegal. Escort services end up straddling the thin line between legal and not so legal and select services may land you in handcuffs and not in a titillating way. Under the new act, you cannot buy sex, carry out third-party advertising or profit from the sale of sex which can make running or procuring escort services in Toronto or anywhere else in Canada for that matter that much harder no matter how innocent your intentions.
Subtlety, careful thought and some common sense are what will distinguish you from a prostitute and keep you on the right side of the law. The following are just some helpful extras to ensure that this distinction is clear even to the authorities.
1. Put it in writing
Have a brief description that informs your clients that any services you offer are exclusively for companionship purposes in exchange for a fee and that anything else is a matter of preference or personal choice between consenting adults. State the lengths you are willing to go to and the limits and have your clients sign it. This is legally binding and protects you quite nicely from any harassment or clients skipping with your fee.
2. Have a system
Many escort services in Toronto use a donation system where you ask for a maintenance donation instead of a fee. This ensures that the money you receive is not considered compensation for sexual favors and clears you from any wrongdoing. Have the client provide this before going out, preferably by providing a dresser or side table at the entrance where they can place the donation as they enter VIP Toronto escorts or as you leave.
3. Do your homework
It is critical to know your industry, client and how to protect yourself. Look up your client before accepting a job, research the legal provisions of the industry so you are never on the wrong side of the law and even find a way around it. For instance you can get a masseuse license and run your business as a massage parlor which would protect you from warrantless searches or harassment and makes it easier to file your returns to keep the IRS away.
Escort services in Toronto have had a difficult time with the grey areas working against them, but you don’t have to be part of the number. Remember subtlety, common sense and careful thought.
