What are the differences between social escort services and rent a friend services in Singapore?
In recent years, there has been more and more rent a friend services popping up. The most recent one being maybe.sg, a local Singapore venture.
So what is the difference between rent a friend services and social escort services? Or are there no differences?
Difference number 1: Friend zone versus girlfriend
First of all, when it comes to rent a friend services in Singapore, you are essentially renting a friend – albeit usually of the opposite gender. Have you ever gone out with a female colleague or classmate when you were younger, and she had already friend-zoned you? That is exactly how it is, because you are renting a friend as the name suggests too! However, when it comes to social escort services, you are renting a girlfriend in Singapore. This means that your social escort will pretend as though she is your girlfriend. The biggest difference is that one is like going out with a girl who friend-zoned you and the other feels like meeting a girl who is your girlfriend.
Difference number 2: Even flirty, playful, non-sexual touches is prohibited
Second of all, while sexual services are prohibited by all legal Singapore companies there is by right no form of physical contact whatsoever when it comes to rent a friend. This technically means that even a light tap is not allowed. I do not know about you, but this seems a little too extreme. If that is the case, why would I go meet this girl? I could simply meet a random girl off Tinder or a colleague or an ex-classmate, and it will probably be equally be the same experience. While sexual services are outlawed by the Singapore government for social escort agencies too, playful and flirty touches here and there is perfectly legal. If I were to pay, I would rather pay for that.
