Girlfriend Experience Services (GFE) — or Professional Girlfriend Services — are transactional commercial services in which a romantic relationship is simulated, that is, the client pays a sex worker to pretend to be his girlfriend during the session (usually a longer period). If the sex worker is male, the service is called Boyfriend Experience.
GFE services may be offered by erotic massage parlors, brothels, and strip clubs, but it’s perhaps more common that they are offered by Escort bureaus or independent sex workers. As a rule, GFE services involve a more personal, intimate, and emotional interaction than traditional Call Girl or Prostitution services.
The focus of the GFE period is not on just having sex (which is perhaps not even part of the service), but also on having a more personal, meaningful, and complete experience. For clients it can be a means to rediscover or enjoy intimacy, sexual healing, or even of learning how to “behave” in an intimate, romantic relationship without any of the commitments involved.
In general, quite a lot of proficiency is required from the “professional girlfriend.” She needs to have certain practical skills and competencies, be savvy, clean, social, cultured, classy, well-groomed, and able to talk about many topics in a meaningful way.
The details of a particular GFE service vary widely from sex worker to sex worker and Escort agency to Escort agency, and may include a range of extra services depending on the abilities of the GFE worker and the agreed “package,” such as massage services, cooking services, dating, cuddling, kissing, hiking, watching TV together, dinner companion, discussion partner, and whatnot.
