LIKE millions of single women, Lilly Chatte flicks through the Tinder dating
app on her phone hoping to find men in her area.
But she is not looking for a new boyfriend, she’s on the hunt for customers.
Single men willing to pay her for sex.
The university student, 22, is one of a growing number of prostitutes to use
Tinder to find clients and claims to have made £10,000 through the app in
the five months she’s been on the game.
Lilly — not her real name — says: “Men will always pay for sex. All the men I’ve met on Tinder solely want to meet for sex, they don’t want to date.
“I charge $60 for 15 minutes, $80 for 30 minutes, and $100 for an hour. I’m making so much money now I work out of a hotel.
“On a busy day, I entertain up to ten men within 24 hours, but usually just
three or four.”
Tinder has changed the face of online dating in the past few years and now
boasts more than 450 million profiles worldwide.
The app offers users the chance to meet fellow singles living nearby and
analyzes their Facebook profiles to find potential matches.
Those using the app are then presented with candidates and swipe right on
their smartphone screen to approve and left to reject.
If both parties approve of one another, they are then able to chat and arrange a date.
But Lilly says many of the men she meets are not looking for a meal out or a
trip to the cinema — with 50 percent of her matches becoming paying clients.
She adds: “I signed up to an adult website and then heard about Tinder through another escort. I didn’t realize it attracted guys who were willing to pay for dates.
“Studying isn’t cheap so I decided to take up escorting part-time as a quick
and easy way to subsidize my course.
“I make it clear that I am an escort very quickly when communicating with men on Tinder and very few have been shocked enough to stop contact.
“Many say that they have never paid for sex before, but when I tell them my
prices they are often still interested.”
Lilly’s Tinder profile strapline describes her as a “nice friendly girl who is
looking for some fun”. It adds: “If you want to spend hot time together, you
found the right person.”
She says: “I figured somewhere within my description of myself guys would
realize I was willing to provide services, as opposed to dating for free.
“Sure enough, within just a few minutes of setting up my profile, I had guys
asking whether I’d be willing to meet up.
“I didn’t mess around, I just told them straight that I didn’t date for free
and the next day I had my first paying client.
“If the guy wants something kinky, I charge more. I get over $1,000 for
overnight bookings and up to $3,000 for weekends away.
“If someone wants me to go to their house or hotel, it’s $130.”
One bonus of using Tinder, Lilly says, is that because it grabs information
from Facebook, the app will tell her if she shares any mutual friends with a
potential client – helping to avoid awkward situations.
She explains: “Most guys just want some no strings adult fun and book me for an hour or two.
“Tinder is really handy for this because it sources singles who live near you,
so guys don’t have to travel far to come and meet me for a short period of
time. When I book in clients through the adult site they’re normally married
and I feel really bad for their wives.
“That’s not nice, so I try to stick to Tinder.”
But Lilly, from Gatwick, West Sussex, admits that using the app to find
punters have brought some odd people into her bed.
She adds: “One guy arrived with a knife and a bin bag and asked if he could
cut me up and put my body parts in the bag.
“Thankfully he left quietly when I insisted he made a swift exit.
“Some guys arrive with drugs on them, in which case I politely ask them to
“Another client complained he hadn’t had his full hour’s worth and threatened to phone his mum. I just had to laugh.” Despite those encounters, Lilly says she has met some “really great guys” using Tinder, but she insists that she is not yet ready to find herself a steady relationship.
She says: “If I were to settle down and meet a proper boyfriend on a dating
site I’d get bored within a few weeks and I’d want to start playing the
field and experimenting again.
“The guys that come to see me know exactly what they’re getting and leave
satisfied, that’s more than most men can say after a Tinder date.”

‘I get what I want and no dates’
STUDENT Mark, 22, has been a prolific Tinder user since splitting with his
last girlfriend earlier this year — and has also hooked up with more than
one prostitute, he met through the app.
He says: “I’ve not been interested in relationships since my last girlfriend
dumped me. I did try some dating sites, but I had no success.
“One of my best pals told me about Tinder and I found it much more useful
right from the start. It was light-hearted, welcoming, and also very
addictive. I found myself browsing all night when I first joined.
“I’ve met up with a few girls from Tinder so far, but the first experience was
a wee bit awkward as the girl I’d been chatting to was an escort.
“When I first met her online she was very friendly and fun-loving, and there was a real sexual spark between us.
“We told each other all about ourselves, exchanged numbers, and then she
mentioned that she was an escort. Just like that.
“At first I was so gutted, but on the other hand, I had wanted to try new
things. That was part of the reason I joined the site in the first place.
“I didn’t want to visit prostitutes, so meeting someone I knew more about but still strictly for ‘business’ was a perfect option for me — and it was one
of the most monumental sexual experiences, I’ve ever had.
I enjoyed my time with her so much I have continued to see her whenever I can, normally once a month. We keep in touch on a weekly basis and she sends me photos from her holidays.
“There is another escort I met on Tinder who I see every so often. But I
wouldn’t want to visit more than two girls at any one time because even
though I’m paying for their services, I do feel you develop a relationship.
“I’d say I’ve spent almost $2,000 on hookers so far, but I don’t mind as I
know I’ll get what I want and there are no boring dates or awkward silences.”
