In most countries prostitution is illegal while escort service is legal. This means that if you are found to be a prostitute you can be arrested and prosecuted. But an escort service is licensed hence it is legal. In Arabic countries a prostitute is executed in public. An escort is not meant for sex even if it happens and the money that is paid is meant for companionship.
Another difference between the two is that contrary to prostitution, an escort is a very professional. This means that for you to have an escort you need to book with an escort agency and this should be done in advance. On the other hand you can pick a prostitute anywhere in the street at anytime.
We also see that when selecting a prostitute you don’t have a choice when making a selection. Whereas the escort service you are given an opportunity to select the best escort that suits your personal desires and meets your taste and preference.
Apart from offering escorts, an escort service offers massages and other non sexual services. But prostitution is specifically for sex and nothing more. On top of that these individuals are well trained professionals who can hold a conversation on whatever topic. This means that if you are a person who loves talking you will definitely enjoy their services and company prostitutes do prostitution for basic reasons which are money and sex.
When it comes to education and being informed most escorts are well educated people who have a good educational background. They deal with the elite class of people and people who can afford their services but prostitutes in most cases are not well educated and their clientele is majorly comprised of people who are not so classy. This means that anyone can afford their services but not everyone can afford the services of an escort.
Also with prostitution there is always the aspect of being arrested for illegal activites although there are differing views on how to handle this as per below:
“The state of New York will begin treating most alleged prostitutes as victims rather than criminals, and seek to steer them toward medical treatment, job training and other social services to break the cycle of sex trafficking.
The highest-ranking judge in the state, Jonathan Lippman, announced the initiative Wednesday and said that it was the first of its kind in the United States.
The state is establishing special courts to handle the cases and expects most of them to be set up by the end of next month. Lippman said that the program could help thousands of people entangled in sex trafficking.
“It is in every sense a form of modern-day slavery,” he said.
Under the new system, all prostitution cases that go beyond arraignment will be referred to the special trafficking court, where a judge, prosecutor and defense attorney will confer.
If they determine that the defendant is a victim in need of help, they will refer the victim to tailored services — drug treatment, education, job training, health care or immigration help, for example.
Defendants who comply with the recommended services can have their charges dropped. In that way, the sex-trafficking initiative is similar to drug diversion programs in courts across the country.
“While these prostitution cases are criminal in every sense,” Lippman said, the special courts will make sure that “there will be no further victimization of these defendants by a society that can be divorced from the realities of this modern-day form of servitude.”
David Bookstaver, a spokesman for the state courts, said that there was no cost to the taxpayer — the cost is absorbed by the service organizations, who are thrilled to help, he said.
Because fewer sex-trafficking cases will tie up the courts, “We have money in the long run,” he said. “But you’re saving people’s lives.”
Lippman said that the vast majority of people charged with prostitution crimes are commercially exploited or at risk of exploitation. In sex trafficking, someone profits by forcing another into prostitution, sometimes through debt or force.
Kathleen Rice, the president of the association of New York state prosecutors, said that she hoped the program would serve as a model for the rest of the country. Pilot courts have been established in Manhattan and Queens and on Long Island.
Criminal justice experts are increasingly focused on the exploitation of girls. The judge, in remarks to the nonprofit group Citizens Crime Commission, made note that the typical age of entry into prostitution in the United States is 12 to 14.
Moreover, he said, few of their clients, and even fewer of the people who exploit them, are ever hauled into court, and victims of exploitation can pass unnoticed through the standard courts because they are afraid to reveal their circumstances.
“They were thought of not as victims, but as criminals, addicts, delinquents, incorrigible and profit-driven,” Lippman said. “Many still feel that way, but we have come a long way in our understanding of this complex problem.”

In health matters, before an escort is employed or hired by an escort agency, medical tests and examinations are conducted to ensure that all clients are guaranteed of their health but in prostitution, it is you as a client to be cautious about your health. This also applies to security matters. In case an escort takes any valuable belonging from you can easily trace it using the agency but when a prostitute takes away your belonging tracing her can be a very difficult process.
In summary, the above differences between escorts and prostitutes are aimed at making those who misunderstand or fail to differentiate between the two to clearly understand the distinctive features of each one of them and make an informed choice between the two.
