Surprising problems of high-class escort as punters don’t ask for sex anymore – they want ‘other things’
Amanda Goff was a former journalist in London before she moved to Australia with her two children and made a quite remarkable career change
A former journalist turned high-class escort has revealed she hardly ever gets to have sex anymore – because punters are too interested in ‘other stuff’.
Mum-of-two Amanda Goff embarked on the remarkable change of career when she moved with her children to Australia.
She has now written another book about her lifestyle – where she dispels some of the myths about escorting and admits she now gets less sex than ever before.
Amanda – also know as Samantha X – has now had her book serialised in Australia Today and even admits she had more amorous liaisons in her previous career.
After revealing her identity in 2015 Amanda says: “Clients, especially new ones, treat me differently now.
“When men book me now it is more out of curiosity than to relieve a twitchy c***. It is more to do with meeting this ‘Samantha X’ and finding out what makes her tick.
“I have clients who are writing books and want me to proofread them in my spare time. I find that these days men are more interested in talking to me than having sex with me.
“I often find myself leaving appointments feeling sexually frustrated.”
Amanda added that instead of feeling elated she usually leaves the hotel room like she’s “done a Q and A and book-signing session.”
She also reveals in her new book Samantha X – Back on Top, that during one dalliance she stripped off – only for the punter to enter the room with a copy of her book and ask her to sign it.
In 2015 Amanda told Amanda Holden and Gok Wan on This Morning that she was inspired by Billie Piper’s character in Diary of a Call Girl and now helps other women to become high-class escorts.

“It was a decision I made in my early 30s. I was always fascinated by Billie Piper in the Call Girl. The London Call Girl series was my training, I’d put the DVDs on and watch those.”
Amanda moved from London to Australia before she decided on becoming a high-class escort, charging up to 1,000 Australian dollars an hour and 6,000 dollars for a night.
But she says her job isn’t all about sex, she describes herself as a “naked therapist”.
Amanda said: “Sex is not a big part of my job. If this job was about sex I would have five minute appointments.
“It’s more naked therapy, I hear a lot of confessions. I hear a lot of men who might have been abused, they don’t have anyone to tell.”
The former tabloid journalist told Amanda and Gok that the reason she had revealed her identity was because she didn’t want to be “exposed in my dressing gown on my doorstep”.
In 2015 Amanda’s two children who are six and eight, don’t fully know what her mother does, but she said: “What I’ve learnt is that children don’t need their parents to have a good job.
“What children need is your time and I haven’t told them what I do they know mummy has written a book about sex.”
Amanda also said she had told family and friends ahead of the book’s release: “I obviously told them before I went public. Some of them have accepted it and some of them haven’t.”
On her first ever night with a man, Amanda admitted she did feel nervous but that it wasn’t as glamorous as it sounds.
“I think I was really nervous. It was such an anti-climax.. literally! But I felt euphoric and extremely empowered.
“It was so pedestrian and vanilla. It wasn’t sex drugs and rock n roll. It was more so companionship.”
Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda questioned why Ms Goff was so expensive and why men couldn’t just go to a bar and find someone to have sex with.
Amanda explained that it was about the “whole experience” not just sex: “It’s about being a lady, being a courtesan. A lady a man can take to a restaurant and have intelligent conversation with. That’s what men are paying for.”

Ms Goff also revealed that her clients were, “any man, there’s no type. Married single, young old”.
She said she had feelings of guilt sleeping with married men but that she “doesn’t judge these men for their marriage”.
Amanda wanted to share her knowledge in her book, Hooked, as she knows there’s “always two sides to a story”.
And since she went public, Amanda has been inundated with women from all over the world which is why she set up her own mentoring agency for women over 35.
She told Amanda and Gok : “I got a letter from an 88-year-old woman the other day!”
