After reading through your Bio’s on various platforms including your own website one word stands out to me – ‘freethinking’ I am yet to meet you Estelle but one thing I have realised is you truly are like no other and it’s awesome! Can you tell us some of the quirky, weird and wonderful things you may do both as a professional Escort and in your own time?
Ah, thank you! I tend to go through 'phases' and that's how I endeup with this arsenal of random and quirky life experiences, skills and hobbies. In my free time I have a strange mish-mash of activities I do... anything from riding my motorcycle, hula-hooping, reading stacks of fantasy novels, volunteering, studying (at the moment yoga) or cultivating wellness using alternative methods. The alternative lifestyle might look something like brewing and drinking kambucha (living bacterial culture) or astral travelling or going hunting for my own meat (a new skill I just picked up). Is that weird? I don't think that's weird. What's the point in living if you're not experimenting, exploring and playing all areas of your life. Why stick to the script that was handed to you?
On a professional level, I've done interesting things with interesting people. But these are experiences I keep for myself and my clients to share, they are more special that way. In my bio's I come off in a certain light, mostly to deter timewasters, but in real life I'm quite laid back and non-judgemental. I believe it's my attitude that invites my clients to explore themselves and their life with me both in the bedroom and outside.
Behind every interesting person is a decorated passport, you have travelled multiple places, seen amazing things and experienced cultures that are hugely different from our own. Where has been your favourite place to holiday and your favourite place to escort?
I really, really love Germany. I plan on going back and living in Berlin for a year sometime before I'm 30. I'm unsure how living in Germany will differ from holidaying there, but it left me with such a positive impression that I have to return for more. I must give it a good go!
In terms of escorting I found the shift in dynamic in Europe fascinating and that's probably my favourite spot to work. It's such a central continent, it offers so much diversity and it's not difficult to be flown across the continent to a city completely unlike the one you came from. If you flew from Melbourne to Perth there really isnt a world of difference, but the same flight time in Europe will have you from Moscow to Spain. And how different are those places! I am highly interested in touring Asia and North America and I'm sure I'll eventually get there.
I have been reading your blogs for a bit of information and I now can’t stop reading your blogs! You’re an excellent writer with views that are both logical and staunch – something I greatly admire particularly with regard to sex work and the history of sex work. ‘We discourage females from any inclination to dress up provocative, act slutty or even be slutty as this will inevitably attract the attention of ill-mannered men.’ I pulled this quote from your blog about Little Red Riding Hood. I love this blog and truly think it’s an inspirational piece – would you mind telling us about the modern day societal normalities for professional escorts based in Melbourne and how the strict Victorian legislation is justified?
From what I've figured and pieced together the laws in Victoria are highly discouraging of privatised forms of sex work, such as my own. I asked myself about these laws: why are we only aloud to show our face (this law has been recently overthrown thanks to the hard work of our local org Vixen), why can't we see clients at our location of choice, why am I limited in advertising my services and my appearances.... And the only conclusion I could figure was that lawmakers wanted sex work to be restricted and contained to licensed brothels. This is highly conservative but also, to me, it's disempowering. These laws tell sex workers 'you're not allowed to achieve anything on your own, you're not allowed autonomy.' Any establishment can advertise any stock-standard image of a model and get away with it without being labelled as false advertisement or infringing on anyone's privacy, establishments usually have a fixed location, and the advertisement of services and appearances are left for discovery within the establishment, not outside. Private escorting doesn't work like this; we need to advertise and present ourselves before we invite or come into contact with clients.
I'm guessing the law makers suffered from a dose of moral panic when creating these laws (or someone fed them this). I speculate they assumed every neighbourhood would operate its own brothel if there wasn't restrictive laws; that all newspapers, magazine, internet and television would be plastered with naked bodies with words like SEX, INTERCOURSE, BLOWJOB (never mind all the car/beer/sport ads that already do this). I find this ridiculous and not at all effective because when you're a sex worker the last thing you want is your neighbours knowing what you're up to. You're doing your best to be discreet - workers often hide their faces, they don't want to be advertising everywhere, just in certain places where its safe to do so. No one wants to be attracting stigma and prejudice into their lives or to the lives of their loved one.
That's my take on the Victorian laws, hopefully these outdated laws will be reviewed and overturned when enough people recognise their nonsensical nature.
Now for a question about your images! You have such a wonderful collection of photographs available on your website, you are mysterious but yet very open and honest and this is projected with your pictures. Where do you gather inspiration to keep things so creative?
I am by nature a creative person and I enjoy celebrating art through my body. I'm also the type of person that's self-motivated and self-challenging so whenever I walk into a shoot I want to create a portfolio that adds to my previous ones. I use my photos to help express my artistic flare. If I compare my first few photoshoots to my most recent ones I'm proud to say they've been improving and growing more representative of me as an escort.
Following on from the last question, I love your nude outdoor photo on twitter – it’s absolutely stunning and I would like to use it as the cover for this interview. Can you tell us about any crazy bookings you've had? Good, bad or even just funny?
I have a booking coming up shortly where I'll be with my client for 14 hours. Four of those hours I'll be with my doubles partner Isabelle Fox and then I'll be spending another four hours in a MFFF session with two other escorts (Sassy Stelle and Sophie Le Swan). That sounds like a crazy booking, right?
I'll be sure to bring the Powerade.
Finally, I’d like to take some time and ask you about your long term goals, ambitions and plans? I have heard through the grape vine you are an incredibly smart, motivated and driven individual… We would love to hear about what’s in store for Estelle Lucas in the next couple of years?
I never make assumptions about the future but I aim to set up a solid financial foundation to see me through the rest of my days. I've been working hard on my civilian career and I hope to be transitioning sometime before my 30s... I hope before then I have toured other continents and built solid relationships with my clients. There's one other thing that's coming up for Estelle Lucas, but it's very hush hush at the moment. All will be revealed in good time however, so follow my social media to keep up to date!
Thank you so much for reading!
