Q. Do you offer natural services? Eg no condom?

A: I cannae do that, captain. I abide by the Prostitution Reform Act 2003 and only provide safe and legal services. 

Q. Do you have a phone number?

A. I sure do, my man. However, I changed my number and made it private in July 2018 and decided to go email only when it comes to initial contact for first time clients. My phone number isn't some huge secret, but I'd rather not have it displayed online. 


If I've seen you before, texting is totally fine :)

Q. I have been trying to reach you via text...I've seen you before, what's the problem?

A. Please email me and let me know your details - it's likely I no longer have the phone number you're texting. Also, in 2018 I got a new phone and mucked something up in iCloud - not sure what I did exactly but it meant I lost all the numbers I'd saved as contacts.  So it's nothing personal I assure you! Just flick me an email and I'll let you know my current number. 

Q. Do you receive anal, rimming etc?

A. That's gotta be an unequivocal no from me, my dude. More than happy to give though - strap on's are my bitch.

Q. How long have you been Gemma Rose for?

A. I started on May 1st, 2017 and worked through to September 2018. I then took a break from October 2018 - June 2019 as I went to the UK, came back, went to the UK again, blah blah blah.  All whilst trying to combat lupus flareups and thyroid problems. I returned to NZ permanently in June 2019.

Q. How long have you been escorting for?

A. I started in 2013 at the Paradise Club agency in Wellington. 9 months later I moved onto a high volume brothel called The K (now defunct). Took a break for a few years, then in May 2017 started independent work as Gemma. So to answer your question...off and on for the past six years.

Q. What do you wear to bookings?

A. A red vinyl mini skirt and a 90's ringer tee with "Happy Hooker" plastered on the front. No bra, obviously - and boy oh boy, that Wellington chill really makes the ol' nipples stand to attention! You can find me in this getup, sitting in your hotel lobby. Obviously I'll have portable speakers with me, blasting out "Roxanne" by The Police on repeat.  I jest, I jest.....I'm generally outcall only, and as discretion is important to me I wear smart casual business wear, typically this is a pair of dress pants/smart jeans, top, and a coat.  During the summer months my go-to outfit is a pair of tight jeans, nice top and a leather jacket. Smart lingerie is underneath all of this, of course. If you would prefer me to come in trackpants and puffer jacket (you can take the girl out of the Manawatu but you can't take the Manawatu out of the girl!) then all you have to do is ask!

Q. Do you offer outfit requests / costume / uniform requests eg schoolgirl outfit, nurse etc.

A. I prefer to choose my own outfits because I know what looks best on me. If it's something in the gallery - for sure - but please don't ask me to wear something you don't see me normally wear. It mightn't suit me, and if I don't feel sexy/confident it'll lessen the experience for both of us. 

Q. Silliest outfit requests you've received?


I can only think of a couple.


An outcall in the middle of winter wearing a black clubbing dress with nothing underneath, a long purple velvet gown (this request was made half an hour before the incall session was due to start)

Q. Do you give discounts?

A. I feel my rates are reasonable already, and discounts have already been applied to all sessions 90 mins and over. The longer the booking, the greater the discount. 

Q. Will you wear makeup for me 

A. Yes, I always wear eye makeup in all bookings. I have really sensitive skin and foundations, powders etc have wreaked havoc on my face in the past, so I avoid putting shit on my face. That and the fact that I have zero skills in applying foundation. Gets me down when I have a soul-destroying pimple that's for sure...and covering it up somehow makes it look worse!   But eyeshadow, eyeliner, lipstick etc I wear, yes

Q. Will you ever text me out of the blue?

A. Unsolicited contact isn't my jam, and discretion is paramount - so no, no texts, no emails, no bullshit. 

Q. Would you enjoy a drink with me in a booking?

A. If you're having one, I would love to join you. As I have my transport sorted, there is no risk of drink driving etc. So....bottoms up!

Q. Can I give you a gift as a token of my appreciation?

A. Gifting isn't necessary at all. But, if you insist, a tip would be fantastic and would go a hell of a long way, as would a testimonial. You can text or email it to me after we've met, and I'll type it up on my testimonials page. Thank you so much in advance - testimonials really are the gift that keeps giving. 

Q. Incalls or outcalls? Or both?

A. Door knocking for D has always been my preference, but I do offer incalls sometimes. 

Q. What happens if we see each other in the street?

A. I'd never approach you - discretion and privacy is assured.

Q. What do you do with condoms after a booking?

A. I will take the condom away, rinse it out, and hang it on the line to dry, ready to use again on the next lucky man.

Just messing with you - I put them in tissue and chuck them in your bin, or maybe you might prefer to do that for me. Some people have asked that I take the used condom/s with me as they don't want them in their house / hotel bin, and that's fine - I just take them with me and chuck in the nearest public bin.

Q. Any STI's?

A. I take strict measures not to jeopardise my career - protection is used at all times and this is non-negotiable. I get tested regularly at NZPC, as should all sex workers. I'm very strict on all things sexual health, and I hope you are too. 

Q. Do you like it rough?

A. Not really...UNLESS I'm on top, in which case I will assume the role of horny maniac extraordinaire, and ride you into oblivion! 

Q. Do you see clients with disabilities? How do you treat them?

A. I prefer to use the term "differently abled", and yes I have experience with clients who are differently abled. When approaching me for a session please let me know more information, so I can get an idea of what your body is capable of enjoying.

If you are differently abled in an intellectual way all I ask is that you have an understanding of the nature of my work and what I provide. 


I find that the majority of my differently abled clients don't need special treatment and don't want to be viewed any differently to other clients bar consideration for their individual needs. But, I would employ that same consideration with anyone else as a normal part of my job (eg, a client who was especially shy, anxious, overweight etc etc). 

​Unfortunately my incall location is not wheelchair friendly.

Q. Are you LBGTQ friendly?

A. Yes!

Q. Will you boot me out as soon as I've blown my load?

A. Haha, that would just be rude! Besides, the majority of my bookings are outcalls, so if you want me gone after you've came, then you'll have to do the booting! The way I see it, you've paid for a certain amount of time and I intend on giving you the time you've paid for. If time (and other factors haha) allow for another round, then that's fine - or if you just want to have a cuddle or a cuppa then that's fine too! 

Q. Are multi shots allowed?

A. Yep

Q. Do you do party bookings?

A. No, I don't. I've never done any sort of recreational drug (apart from the odd joint once in a blue moon.) 

​Q. Most embarrassing escorting experiences? 

A. Plenty! A few that spring to mind would be:

1) A lunch date at the Wellington library cafe, where the client was really loudly and enthusiastically boasting about the size of his daughters breasts. I shit you not. Being a busy lunchtime the place was packed and people could absolutely hear him...people were staring...looks of disapproval abound...I was cringing so hard that I felt like collapsing into myself and turning into a black hole. 

2) Another lunch date (are they cursed?) at a tightly packed cafe/restaurant in Wellington, where the client loudly broadcasted my profession, and kept referring to it over the duration of the meal. People next to us heard for sure - we were packed in like sardines. The waiter (who kept coming over to fuck around with cutlery, water etc) also heard. My face was redder than the CCP.

3) An outcall at a hotel...went directly to the hotel from my house with no stops. I had taken the payment and reached into my bag to get my condom pouch, whilst maintaining eye contact and chatting with the client. Trying to be classy and all that jazz. I reach for the condom pouch and felt something cold and slimy on my hand. Dammit, the lube had leaked, I thought. My hand still in the bag, I had a look and what did I see? A slimy brown slug! Wtf? I lived in a typical unhealthy Wellington rental at the time, but slugs were never a problem in the house....so how had one got into my hooker handbag? For slugs' sake! Whilst still chatting and maintaining eye contact with the client (and my hand still in the bag) I managed to wrap the slug in a supermarket docket, then when I took my shower I brought my bag into the bathroom with me, and dumped the slimy offender (and potential cockblocker, if the client had seen!) in the bin. A sluggin' sureal experience, without a doubt. 

4) My first dinner date. The client was telling me about his visit to Jim Morrison's grave in Paris and I was listening intently, so intently in fact that I hadn't noticed that the end of my ponytail was swimming in a pool of beef au jus....

Q. Do you see older clients?

A. The majority of clients I see are between 45-60. That said, all ages (18+!) are welcome. The youngest client I've seen was 18, the oldest was 72. As long as you're respectful and 18+, I'd love to see you.

Q. Have you ever done a couples booking?

A. YES! And I love doing them, as reflected in my couples rates structure. Check my testimonials page for reviews from some of the lovely couples I've seen.

Q. Does the GFE start when a booking is confirmed?

A. The GFE starts when I knock on your door. Bookings shouldn't take more than a handful of emails to organise. 

Q. Can I pay you in drugs?

A. Lol, considering I don't even do drugs and never have (apart from weed occasionally)...the answer is no. The only form of payment I take is New Zealand dollars in cash / bank deposit. 

Q. What instances do I need to make a deposit?

A. New clients wanting to book 3 hour, or in fact any situation where I get timewaster/fantasy booker vibes. Also, incalls of any duration for first-time clients.​

Q. Ever had a lady book you?

A. No. I have had a handful of inquiries and they've all turned out to be timewasters, or have ghosted me upon my saying

I'm available to see them. Odd. 

Q. Would you do a MMF?

A. Not sure to be honest...I've not done one before and at the end of the day I only have so many holes available (I don't receive anal). I'd only consider it if I'd met at least one of the males previously. 

Q. What happens if you cancel?

A. If I do need to cancel you will be given as much notice as possible as well as a discount off your next booking. VIP status will also be granted after our first meeting, instead of you having to wait till our third meeting. 

Q. Can you turn up to my outcall location in the middle of winter wearing a little black dress with nothing underneath?


Q. Can we meet at the bar for a drink first?

A. We can do if you really want to, but please be aware that my time starts the moment we meet. 

Q. Do you have any work experience outside of escorting?

A. Yes, I worked for several years straight after leaving school, largely in the insurance industry. Also in database admin and a technical support role for a controversial payroll system. You know the one ;) 

Q. Do you give anal?

A. I love strap ons!

Q. I want to know the real you...you seem more interesting than Gemma.

A. Wtf? If you've spent more than five minutes at my website or met me in person then you already DO know the real me. Gemma IS me, albeit with a different name for privacy/security/stigma reasons. Do you think I'd go to such a great effort on my website just to curate a fake personality in the hopes of money? Never gonna be that desperate, matey.


What you see is what you get - and I've gone to great lengths to try to convey that on my website. 


 I can't sustain a fake personality, so I don't bother trying. Been there, done that at agencies, brothels etc. 

It's 100% easier + more natural just to be myself. 

Q. Do you have an age preference with clients?

A. Not really. I have seen clients as young as 18 (yes, I did ask for ID!) and the oldest I've seen was 72. The majority of clients I see tend to be in the 40-65 age bracket. 

Q. Do you see virgins?

A. Yes, I have seen several virgins - if you are new to sex please let me know prior, so I don't make things awkward by making assumptions etc. 

Q. Have you ever done an international fly me to you?

A. I have done fly me to you's but as of yet they've all been in New Zealand. I am not currently available for international fly me to you bookings.  

Q. Easiest way to make you orgasm?

A. Oral on me...all about that clit! Licking is the way to go. In other words, if you're a purveyor of pussy/connoiseur of c*nt, you'd do well to book a session with me. Occasionally I also come during penetrative sex -but only when I'm on top, grinding down on your rock hard D. Oohhhhhh

Q. How about fingering?

A.  If you're after an orgasm and genuine pleasure, I find that the tongue works best on me. Fingering can often be painful and lead to thrush or BV, which then means a loss of income as I can't work.

Q. Do you shower before a booking?

A. Absolutely, I will arrive at your outcall location showered, and I have a quick freshen up once I've arrived too. 

Q. How do I pay you?

A. At the very start of the booking we'll "get the paperwork out of the way" and then get down to the GOOD TIMES!

Q. Do I have to pay you in cash? I hate cash!

A. I have a BNZ business account you are welcome to use if you'd prefer...you can either deposit the money via internet banking or you can make an anonymous deposit at a BNZ smart atm. The deposit needs to have cleared in my account prior to the commencement of the booking. 

Q. Do I have to email you to make another booking?

A. All first-time clients need to book through email, yeah, and I'll give you my phone number after that if you prefer texting.

Q. Why email only initially?

A. I went email only in 2018 and have never looked back. Being email only has cut down the amount of bullshit enquiries drastically. I don't miss having my phone number plastered online, and I don't miss waking up to a slew of missed calls, and texts sent in the middle of the night ("U up?")

Q. Will you participate in a gang bang?

A. No.

Q. Can you send me some pics that aren't in your gallery?

A. Can you send me some money that isn't in my bank account?

Q. Can we go to McDonalds for our dinner date?

A. Fast food doesn't agree with me, if you get what I mean.

Q. Can we do the dinner date at my place? I'm a whiz in the kitchen!

A. Oh, are you? That makes one of us! Yes, I am fine to do the dinner date at your place. Doesn't have to be anything flash either. The only caveat is I can't really cope with hard/crunchy food. 

Q. Okay that's cool, what are some of your favourite foods?

A. Soup, potatoes, pasta, macaroni cheese, Indian food, fish, cheese scones, anything soft really.


Foods I avoid include pork (never actually tried it but the smell of it cooking makes me nauseous and that's enough to put me off). Also hard food, crunchy food, excessively sugary food. ​

Q. Do you do car bookings?

A. No - never have and never will. 

Q. Are you a tea or coffee drinker?

A. You know...I don't actually care for coffee at all. Don't like it, don't drink it. When I'm in a cafe situation hot chocolate is my bitch, hold the marshmallows/chocolate fish/sugary bullshit.


I don't go to cafes often though... I keep telling you I'm a cheap ass!

Tea is my favourite hot drink all up. Can't get enough of the teeth staining tannin-tastic goodness. A dash of milk, hold the sugar.  

Q. For dinner dates, can we do the bedroom component first?

A. YES! Please, for the love of God, yes!!!!!! I would very much prefer this. Nothing worse than riding dick when you've bloated up like Violet Beauregard.

Q. Are you 420 friendly?

A. "Hope you ready for the next episode heeeeeey. Smoke weed everyday!"


Not that I do that. No friends = no weed, but if you want to have a cheeky toke in a session I'm not gonna stop you. Might even join you my good man, sharing is caring after all.

Q. Most unusual places you've had a booking?

A. I've only done bookings in houses and hotels. However I've had some odd requests in my time, though - cars, behind a bush at a park, in a treehouse that wasn't even on the enquirers' property (!!!!!), in an office, in a vacated commercial building. 

Q. It's fun to play at the Y-M-C-A

A. I don't doubt it for a second...however for my own comfort I do not provide outcalls to youth hostels / backpackers / dormitory style set-ups. Thanks for your understanding!

Q. Can I smoke during our sessions?

A. If it's an outcall at your house, then sure man, whatever. I'll not be offended. ​Hope you've got some mouthwash on hand!

Q. Do you smoke?

A. No. I smoked rollies for many years, but quit and took up vaping in November 2017. I vape 50mg nicotine salts...because I don't fuck around when it comes to getting that all-important nicotine hit. I only vape tobacco flavoured juices too...no time for weird ass flavours

​Q. Can we drink alcohol together?

A. You know it my dude!


Vodka, whiskey, gin...the possibilities are endless! This hussy ain't fussy. 

Q. I want to book you for a Couples session as a surprise for my wife. That okay?

A. Sorry, no.


It's absolutely imperative that your wife is aware of the proposed booking and consents to it. Likewise if you are a wife and wanting to surprise your husband. All parties need to be aware and consenting. 

Q. How do you avoid timewasters? Also, are you picky with clients?

A. I got my TW radar the hard way. I'm usually pretty spot-on although on the odd occasion I've been off the mark. I'm not infallible...unfortunately!

"U avail?", "Hi", "U workin" type emails don't spark joy, so they're ignored. Short notice booking requests are also ignored because it's stated everywhere that I require at least 12 hours' notice. If that's been ignored...what else have they ignored?


Also I do tend to tune out pretty quickly if I feel like getting basic information from you (name, location etc) is comparable to drawing blood from a stone; it shouldn't take several back and forth emails to get the information that I need from you and would much rather engage with someone who can communicate effectively from the very start. Don't forget - I have gone to great lengths to provide you with extensive details about myself and the services I offer - yet I know nothing about you - at all. Polite and informative communication goes a long way in creating a fantastic first impression! 

An example:

Hey Gemma, my name is George. I'll be in Wellington at the (insert hotel name here) on the 3rd of December and was wondering if you would be around in the early evening for 90 mins? Cheers.


Hey Gemma, my name is Jim Bob Bobbalina. Are you available for an hour at 3pm on 22nd June? I'd like the shower fun extra. I'm in Tawa. Thanks

Too easy!

Also, if you have any further questions / requests feel free to mention - I know this FAQ is extensive but I'm not going to bite your head off if there's something you've missed! My screening is rigid because 1) I need to feel safe and 2) I need to feel as sure as I can be that we are the right match. A good connection really enhances a booking!

Fact: I reply to roughly 60% of emails. The remaining 40% are ignored as they haven't passed screening (given me their name, booking type, location) 

Q. Do I need to give you my specific address in my first communication to you?

A. No, but I will need your general location (suburb) in that first email. Then when I get back to you and we're about to confirm, I'll ask for your address. If it's at a hotel/motel I can easily find the address online :)

Q. Do I need to give you my real name?

A. Not at all! But you do need to give me a name.

Q. I know you don't offer anal on you but would you consider it, just for me?

A. No

Q. Do you genuinely enjoy what you do?

A. I do

Q. I'm 23, good looking, clean, and work out daily. How much?

A. Weird flex, but ok. Please see my "Services and Rates" page for more information. Also; please realise that not a single fuck is given as regards your physique / age. You pay me my rate, you have excellent hygiene and you're respectful of my boundaries. 

Q. Can I take photos/videos of you/us in a session?

A. No

Q. I don't require "full service" by way of penetrative sex but keen on oral etc.  How much for an hour?

A. $300 as per my "Services and Rates" page.

Any in-person booking, regardless of nudity and/or sexual interaction,  requires my non-negotiable, advertised fee. 


No discount will be given on a fee that we both know is already more than fair.

Q. Do you offer toys?

A. You know it, papi!

 See the good ol' "Services and Rates" page for more info. 

Q. Is it okay that I consider you a friend?

A: I see no issue with that, as long as already established boundaries remain unbroken.  If I've seen you more than once it means I genuinely like and enjoy you, therefore I consider you a friend also. A secret friend, but a friend nevertheless. 

Q. Which duration do you recommend for first timers?

A. 90 mins - 2 hours

Q. Which durations are the most popular?

A. I find that 90 mins and 2 hours are my most popular durations. 

Q. I can't afford you...what are my options?

A. Wellington is teaming with escorts - you could shop around to find someone at a rate that suits your budget, or perhaps you could put some money aside each payday and save up? I'm also happy to accommodate pre-paid bookings, where you can pay instalments over a maximum 4 month period. 

Q. Do you shave your body hair?

A. Yes

Q. May I offer you a box of chocolates?

A. I appreciate the gesture, but I'd have to politely pass. Hashtag weight loss journey etc etc etc

Q. Do you do CBT?

A. No. If I offered that, I would list it. I did do this in mistress bookings when I first entered the industry, and fucken hated it.

Q. I am a man of colour...is this a problem? Yes or no.

A. NO, and would never be. I'm sad that this even needs to be asked

Q. Would you be happy to vouch for me if another escort required it?

A. Yes, I can be a reference for you. Just let me know prior, and give the escort my email address and

have them contact me. 

Q. I wear an ankle bracelet right now...is this a problem

A. No. No judgement, no bullshit as per my "Services and Rates" page

Q. I'd feel more comfortable if I left my t-shirt on during any physical interaction. Is that okay?

A. Yes, of course

Q. Why do you wear a scrunchy on your wrist?

A. I like to have a scrunchy on hand (well, on wrist) to tie up my hair when giving you what will hopefully be a glorious blowjob.

Q. Have you ever had to fire a regular client?

A. Yes, once. I wish him all the best.

Q. If I book you for an international Fly Me To You are you going to insist on flying business class?

A. No! I wouldn't let you. Economy is just fine - and yes, I have travelled long haul several times, all in economy. Birmingham to Dubai sat near the toilet wasn't great, but that's by the by...

Due to Covid-19, international FMTY's are not on my radar in any way, shape or form. 

Q. Hey, I know you've stated that you don't currently provide toys, but...do you currently provide toys?

A. .......no........

Edit August 2020: Yes! I have finally found some toys I am comfortable using. See my services and rates page for more info.

Q. Are you on drugs?

A. No! I'm sure I have already answered this?

​Q. Hi Emma, how do I book?

A. Hiya.  On the front page of my website I have instructions on how to book, in a text box for added visibility. All of my advertisements also state how to book. (Name, booking duration, location). Too easy! Cheers, Gemma

Q. Why don't you reply to my DM's on Twitter?

A. 99.9% of people who DM me on Twitter have never booked me / never supported me.

If you differ from this, then you will already have my email +  phone number as you are a trusted regular/supporter. You will already know that they're the best ways to contact me. And you'd already know that Twitter is probably the least effective way of contacting me.

​​Q. I know you prefer some notice but can I see you right now?

A. No. 

Q. Would you cancel on a new client if a regular wanted to book at the same time.

A. Nah, it's first come first served - if a new client booked for a certain time, and it's confirmed...then the time is theirs.

However, I can definitely try and make something work for a regular if they're  open to another time. This has happened a few times in the past and in some cases I've worked past my advertised hours to accommodate them. 

Q. What is your kink?

A. Sex with strangers + door knocking for D

Q. Do you sell content (custom clips etc)

A. No. 

I fully appreciate the merits of diversification - the more side hustles the better - but content creation just isn't something I can get excited over - I don't have the talent or the motivation to hustle online for minimal pay, and privacy is a huge concern. My heart wouldn't be in it, and this would translate on camera for sure.


Don't misconstrue this - I'm not shitting on content creators in any way. I'm just being honest in saying that for me personally, creating videos/camming isn't of any interest to me, and it's something I wouldn't authentically enjoy. 


Doorknocking for D is where I'm at :) 

Q. When is your birthday?

A. December 3rd. 

Q. When will you come to (insert town/city here)

A. Whenever you pay to fly me to you?

Or, you can fill out my tour request form on the main page. If/when I plan to be in your area, I'll send you an email .

Q. What can I expect upon meeting you (outcall)

A. You can expect me to arrive at your hotel (or your place) immaculately dressed - after all, discretion is important to us both. If we are meeting at a hotel we'll likely be meeting outside because the lifts are carded. I will greet you with a hug and we will go up the lifts to the privacy of your room where the good times will most certainly roll.


If your hotel isn't carded, I'll come up to your room, knock on your door, you'll open it and I'll say "knock knock knock, I'm here for your c*ck". Just kidding about the last part. 

Q. Did you get booking requests during lockdown?

A. I went on hiatus just before the first Level 3 (March), and didn't check my emails until mid May. When I finally logged in, there were 163 booking requests. I clicked "select all" and deleted. Some of the emails were even sent in level 4.........................

Q. Do you have plans to leave Wellington?

A. I've been in Wellington for several years, and although the plan isn't to be here for life - I'm not planning on leaving in the near future.

I have been in my house for many years but when I eventually need to move I'll be looking to live outside of Wellington.


But like I said, I'm not planning on leaving in the near future :)

Q. Your favourite lingerie?

 For Gemma Rose I wear Simone Perele bras, as per my gallery. 


Outside of Gemma Rose I never, ever wear anything with cups or wires. It's either no bra if I'm at home, or a sports bra when I'm outside exercising. Not fussed on civvie bra brands, but I love dri-fit / cool dry fabrics.


Q. Did you used to have blonde hair? I'm sure I remember you with blonde hair.

Although a natural brunette, I was blonde for many years! But....never as an escort. The picture below is from 2012 :)

Q. What's behind the VIP access paywall?

Paywall is kind of an odd word to use, but I guess it's accurate - in order to gain VIP access you do need to have seen me (therefore paid me) at least three times. It applies to GFE/Dinner Date/Couples bookings. Long time panty customers (bought at least 6 pairs) are also granted VIP.  Social bookings don't count, as I only offered these for a short time and as of June 2020 are no longer offered at all. 

Various permanent and limited time promotions​.

There is also an archive gallery, containing every Gemma Rose picture I have ever displayed on the site. With the standard Gallery area the majority of pictures are super recent - whereas the archive gallery contains pictures from 2017 all the way through to 2020. Last count there were about 41 images in the archive gallery?

Anyway, hope this provided you with some insight! In any case, it's better than what you'll find behind the NZ Herald paywall :P

Q. You seem to swear a lot on here...can I expect that in a booking too?

Not necessarily. There's no denying I have a foul mouth, but I try to "read the room"...if you start swearing first, then I'll see that as permission granted to start effing here and there as well. 



Q. How are you finding the working climate in the age of Covid?

“And I? May I say nothing, my Lord?” - Oscar Wilde

Q. What guarantees can you make in a booking?

Guarantees? Well, nothing in life is guaranteed my esteemed dude, apart from death, taxes and the inevitable return of Freddy Krueger....but I can guarantee you that:

- There won't be any awkward silences 

- What happens and what is said in the room...stays in the room

- I won't send you any unsolicited texts or emails post-booking

- I will do my best to make sure you have a good time

- We will have a safe + responsible time

- I'll make sure your comfort is a priority. When I'm on top (my favourite!!) I do tend to vary the tempo - slow and sensual, a good hard pounding with boobies bouncing all over the show, then switching back to slow...etc etc. I check in with you often and ask that you let me know if you want me to slow down (or to go faster!)

- my jokes will make you laugh. Or cringe. Probably both!


Q. In financial terms what were your initial goals when you started escorting? Have they changed now?

Great question!

Pretty much the same as any job I've been in...making money in order to comfortably get by, and being bloody grateful for it too.


My goals haven't changed too much. Apart from when it comes to good quality NZ made clothing, I'm a cheap ass - so I rarely spend money on anything apart from the necessities: living costs, putting money aside to meet financial obligations, phone top up, vape juice and coils, gas money for outcalls, website hosting and domain renewals, saving for nightmare scenarios (cats needing vet care, being booted out of my house, blah blah blah.) My overheads are reasonably low, and I live way below my means, therefore my rates for extended encounters are reasonably low. 

Q. Why low volume? You would make more money if you saw multiple clients per day. Something to think about especially these days!


In the age of Covid I don't want to be seeing multiple clients a day anyway. Besides, I don't have what it takes to deal with high volume work. I work on pre-bookings only, with a minimum of 12 hours notice required. I'm available any time between 9am - 11pm, but I only offer 2-3 (preferably 2) sessions per day, so I can get on with other things.  I have daily commitments outside of escorting that I fit in around bookings. 

What this all means is that I am not raking in thousands of dollars a week.


If I had the gusto to work at a high volume I would.


But I've been there, done that, and in my opinion the higher volume = the higher chance of things going wrong. Like, if I'm in a bad situation, or I'm tired, sore etc and I still have a few clients booked later that day...my mojo just isn't gonna be intact, and that's the honest truth. Yeah, I could be professional and pretend I'm all good in the motherfuckin' hood, but I don't have the skills for that. Besides, pretending = even more exhausting! 


 I would not be able to guarantee you the fun loving, energetic Gemma Rose I have advertised myself as. I know full well that I'm in a privileged position when it comes to being able to do low volume work and I don't take that privilege for granted.

Q. What is the daily commitment you're referring to?


Long distance walking. I walk a minimum of 10km per day (weather pending, and only if I have afternoons free, which I usually do!).


In September 2020 I also took up stair climbing as well as rucking (walking with weights in a backpack)


I started long distance walking the day NZ went into level 4 lockdown in March 2020, and I've lost nearly 8kg since then, as well as slowly starting to change the composition of my body + building strength and endurance.

Q. What do you think surprises clients when they see you?

Well, I hope there aren't any surprises because I have gone to great lengths to be as transparent as possible on this website, ensuring you are as informed about me as you could possibly be before even meeting me. 


I know have a formal style of writing though, and I wonder if that causes me to come across as boring, militant, pussy harder to get into than Fort Knox etc etc.

I'm pretty laid back in person, I promise! 

Q. Can we meet for a coffee first to see if there's chemistry?

My website is jam packed with information and insights as to my personality, my likes, and my dislikes.


Looks-wise, none of my photos are airbrushed. You can see that I am in various stages of laser tattoo removal, you can see I have faint stretch marks on my breasts, hips, and lower back. You can see that I don't suck in my tummy in pictures. You can see that I have laugh lines. I know that these things don't matter to the majority, but I accept that they might to some. 


I have 16 years of experience in Photoshop and could cover these things up in a jiffy - but I don't - because it would be false advertising. 


 If you feel you need to meet for a hot drink to see if I "make the cut", even after going through my entire website and gallery, then I don't think we'd be a good fit. 

Many new clients comment on how they felt they already knew me after spending time on my site, and how it made them all the more excited to meet me. I LOVE THAT SO MUCH!!!

Q. What's your take on street workers?


I don't really have a "take" on them? They're just...sex workers who work on the street?


If you're angling for me to shit on street workers then you're out of luck I'm afraid. I'm many things...but I'm not a snob, and I would not - and do not - look down on any worker, whether they be indoors or outdoors. At the end of the day we all suck D for $.


Q. Ever been hurt on the job


Q. Ever been questioned at a hotel?

Questioned by reception? No, although I've been given the side eye a handful of times. 

Q. Where do you live? Can I come to you?

I live in Karori, and no sorry...just outcalls and the occasional CBD apartment incall for now. If/when I move, I would be open to inviting you into my home. Hope you like cats...

Q. Do you talk a lot when you're nervous?

 The opposite. I talk a lot when I'm feeling relaxed and at ease :)

Q. Any tattoos and/or piercings?

Tattoos: I have a small tattoo on my ankle. I got it zapped once by a laser but decided after one session that I wanted to keep it after all!


 I used to have two on my back but they are 99.9% gone now due to laser tattoo removal.  One on my lower arm which is 95% gone, and one on my upper arm which is 50% gone. It's a long, slow process!

I love Led Zeppelin, but next time I'll just get the t-shirt.....

Also: laser tattoo removal is about as soul-destroyingly painful as it sounds. 

Piercings: I went through an "I'M so000O eDgY" period in my late teens, which involved me wearing a Paul Frank "I love punk" t-shirt with the PF monkey on it, tartan mini skirts adorned with safety pins, and getting my tongue pierced in three different places (piercings all in a line). I even tried to get into the music of the Sex Pistols, based solely on their amazing graphic designs. Once I actually put on their music though...jeepers...realised it was a bridge too far, and I snapped out of my poser punk phase forthwith. 

The tongue piercings would be well closed by now - it's been over a decade!

Ears are pierced with two holes in one and five in the other. I usually put studs in a few times a year to check the holes are still open. But typically I don't wear earrings at all. Just not my thing! In fact the only jewellery I wear is my watch, a silver bear ring, and a couple of locally designed onyx cocktail rings.  Onyx is soooo my bitch!

Plus "they" say onyx wards off negativity. Positive vibes only bby.

Q. How do we go about meeting in the hotel lobby? Do you promise to be discreet? What will happen?

Typically, I'll burst into the hotel lobby decked in sweat and my hair messed up due to the unforgiving southerly.


I'll then pause for a brief moment - this is usually the point where I then start pounding my fists against my chest, huffing and puffing and chanting "Loud and proud, bitches! Palmy represent! Natural Double D tiddies!" over and over again. 

Now that I've got everyone's attention I then announce to the world: "Hey, I'm Gemma - a rough diamond from Palmy originally, but here in Wellington to ride dick in hotels, motels, and private residences! You won't know of me as I barely advertise anywhere but nevertheless I'm a hoe by name and nature and tonight I'm here to give (your name and room number) a right royal rogering! Fuck yeah!"


All eyes are on me as I then jump over the reception desk, an offensive fart escaping me in the process. Should've laid off the Kellogg's All Bran...ahh, never mind. I retrieve a red light out of my handbag and go about plugging it into the nearest power outlet.  That way, when you come down out of the lift you'll see me under a red light - your own special, smelly Roxanne! You simply can't miss me!!


I notice a staff member has a telephone in his hand - who is he gonna call?  Ghostbusters? The police? M-m-mental health? I don't want to find out - suddenly very self-aware, I high tail it out of there, turning my phone off as soon as I'm a safe distance away. I'll text you to cancel a few days after the fact. *shrugs*

Python-esque situations aside now...the reality is that privacy and discretion is as important to me as it is to you!


I don't dress or act in a way that would draw attention, and I have never experienced any issues in reception. 

Clothing-wise, for outcall bookings I wear exactly what I would wear in a vanilla job. I'm not a frumpy dresser, but nor am I a provocative one. Clothes are one of the few things I don't cheap out on - I like quality NZ made stuff that lasts a lifetime if taken care of properly.


I can give you my word that your privacy and discretion is assured. I'm not ashamed of what I do, but I'm a private person and our rendezvous is no one else's business.

If you want to meet in the hotel lobby, just flick me a text when you're in the actual lobby and I will appear right away.​ Usually I meet people outside the hotel, and we go through together. Or, we meet in the bar, where you will already be, and I walk through and join you. It's rare these days to find a hotel that isn't carded but if it's card free then I can go straight up to your room! 

I have never, in 3 years and counting, encountered any issues in hotel reception areas. Please don't worry - discretion is something I take very seriously! I'm a professional and I act as such. We are all good.

Q. Wait...you have toys now? What/when/who/where/why!!!

These are surreal times we're living in, man. For pretty much the past three years I've been all "i'LL gEt ToYs SoOn"...and in August 2020 soon became now.


I first used a strap on during my brief stint as a mistress in 2013, and strap ons (and spanking) were the only two mistressing activities I enjoyed. I have used strap-ons many times since, mainly in couples bookings on the lady, but also a few times over the years with willing dudes. It's always been theirs, though, not mine.


And spanking - I have given and received many times in bookings, but again, never my own paddle. 

Adding toys to the mix has been on my sex worker bucket list for the longest time. 2020 has been a challenging year for me, and I have had a lot of spare time to  think about the future of Gemma Rose. I decided that the time to tick off this bucket list item was NOW. 

Q. Do you employ a traffic light safe word system for your spanking sessions?

Very much YES!

Q. Where do your new clients find you? 

Great question! For over a year now I have made a point of asking every first-time client where they found out about me. It's either 1) Escortify (I'm only on there occasionally though)  2) They can't remember 3) Google  4) Twitter.

Q. Do you see more regs, or more new clients?

Post lockdown it has mainly been new clients.

Q. Favourite music?

The Beatles, Pet Shop Boys, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Kraftwerk, Queen, Pink Floyd, Depeche Mode, REM, Grateful Dead, David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Joy Division, Miss Kittin, Bee Gees, Simon & Garfunkel, Cream, Snoop Dogg & more

Q. Least favourite music?


Q. Best concert you've ever been to?

That's an easy one -  as I've really only been to one proper concert - Paul McCartney in Auckland, December 2017. 

I went to a True Bliss (manufactured kiwi pop act) concert at The Regent in PN in 1999 but I cannae remember too much as I was young. Also randomly stumbled upon a Dave Dobbyn concert on the front steps of Parliament a few years back - hung around waiting for "Loyal" but a girl can only wait so long, had to get myself home....buses to catch, carbs to consume etc etc. He'd probably already sung it before I came along!

Q. Do we have to have sex during our time together?

Not at all.


Essentially I charge for my time*, irrespective of what may/may not happen during that time.

 Of course due to the nature of my work it's implied/assumed that sexual activity of some description would be taking place, but it certainly doesn't have to. You may be surprised how often it doesn't!

*With the exception of my "optional extras" (shared shower, toys etc)

Q. Got kids?

Definitely no kids...I'm childfree by choice. 

Q. If/when you retire will you stop seeing clients altogether?

No, I would still see regulars / anyone with VIP access

Q. Are you a native Wellingtonian?

No, I'm from Palmerston North, by way of Glasgow Scotland.​

Q. Ever going to get a haircut?


Some of you will know I have an autoimmune disease called lupus. One of the many things I experience through SLE is thinning hair.  I know I don't have a thick, voluminous mane, and I know my hair would look tidier + less straggly if it were shorter, but I've always wanted long hair, so here I am. I tie it up most of the time anyway, except for photos. Unfortunately I do experience a bit of hair loss as well as thinning, again this is from lupus.

As a side note, lupus is not contagious. Also, I don't have any bald patches!


Q. Is your hair colour natural? In some pictures it looks like you've got a bit of blonde in there?

I know, right? But it's just a trick of the light. All natural here bby.

Q. Do you reply to most emails?

100% reply rate for regular clients. Most prefer texting, although I do have some regulars who prefer email .


 New/potential clients maybe a 50% reply rate? When I get a polite, informative email from someone I've not met before, I'm pleasantly surprised, and obviously reply asap to these kind of emails.

To ensure a response, please check the "book now" box on the main page of my website. All I ask is for an introduction, location, preferred time/date, booking duration. For safety reasons first impressions are everything. 

"Now" bookings or booking requests with short notice are ignored. All over my website, and my ads, I state that I can't accommodate short notice bookings. If that's been ignored, what else has been ignored?  Also asking for shit I don't do (anal on me), asking my rates...not understanding my simple colour coded availability table...the list goes on. I try not to let it get to me though, it's just part of the job


Q. Ever turned up to a booking commando?


Nope, but I have left several bookings commando hahaha. (Some choose to buy the panties I'm wearing...I know about this in advance yet ALWAYS seem to forget to bring another pair to change into!)

Q. How do you obtain FAQ's?

In-person conversations, email conversations, and some I have made up myself.

Q. Do you like to travel? Which countries have you been to?

Aussie, Singapore, Malaysia, USA, England, Scotland, United Arab Emirates. 

All great destinations, but my favourite experience of all was a 3 month roadie all around New Zealand, because there's no place like home

Q. Why the screening form for incalls?

Because historically I have always received a high percentage of time wasters, address hunters, and serial cancellers for incalls. 


Outcalls have always been a breeze, but incalls not so much. I want to offer them though, so I decided to adopt some better measures like a screening form, deposits required by first time clients only, and cancellation fees. 

Q. I came across your old Tumblr site and it had your phone number on it tee tee hee :)

Yeah, it has the 027 number that I stopped using in July 2018 :)


As telco's recycle their numbers after a certain amount of time, I imagine you've well and truly been blocked by whoever you've been texting...coz it ain't me. If you had actually booked me since July 2018 you'd know the new number........

Note to readers: When I first started as Gemma I had a free Tumblr site. It served me well for the first few months, before one day I noticed my phone was absolutely dead - checked my website and Tumblr had implemented some login shit whereby only Tumblr members could view my site due to the naughty nature of my services. 

I bought a domain and hosting that same day, loaded up Photoshop, and had my new website online a few days later.

Q. What's your favourite gin?

Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray No.10, The Botanist

Q. Stalking your Twitter and read a comment from you mentioning you had been banned from Air B&B. Did you get banned for using it for work?

I signed up for Air BnB years before I escorted, using an 027 number which was (then) my one and only phone number. I used Air BnB successfully twice in the USA, had good reviews etc. 


Fast forward to 2017 I was using a different 027 personal SIM and I thought I'd use my old 027 number for Gemma, forgetting I'd used it years ago when joining Air BnB. I used this 027 on ads etc. 


Note that when I joined Air BnB I had to provide a passport scan etc, so they knew my real details.

Anyway, fast forward again to July 2018 when I started booking all my accommodation for my 3 week multi-city UK trip in October of that year. To save money I thought I'd book my accommodation thru Air BnB. Booked the longest stay of the trip first, (Glasgow) woke up the next day to an email from Air BnB telling me I'd been banned for life from the platform + they weren't required to give a reason + notice that they had cancelled and refunded my booking.

The only thing I can think of is that they searched the 027 number and saw its association with Gemma, and decided I'd be using it for work purposes. 

Which I would never have done. 

I didn't bother making a new account with a different phone number as I'd need to provide my ID again, and they'd have that on record from last time. 

Did some googling and discovered Air BnB hate sex workers and are discriminatory as fuck in general. They even own AI tech that discriminates against sex workers. 

I had to come up with a good few thousand extra in accommodation costs to stay in hotels...and had 3 months left to do so. My hourly rate for Gemma was $180 at the time, and my 90 special rate was $260. Was definitely a mad scramble! 

Q. Don't you like cider anymore. You used to mention it all the time and now you don't.

Seems like I've finally been called out on this!


I rode the cider train for well over a year and then lockdown hit, and cider was one of the many things I decided to ditch. Now I don't really care for it anymore...I mean, hell, I'll drink it, it'd be rude not to, but I have gone back to my old favourite drink of choice, gin! I've also taken to craft beer but dear God does it knock me for six. By the way, my favourite beer is "Decadent" at Fortune Favours, followed by "The Harlequin".

Q. Re the colour coded availability box. Does fully booked mean you're seeing clients back to back, and no room for anyone else?

Nah, fully booked is when there are 2 or 3 pre-arranged sessions that day. (I prefer to work low volume due to other commitments). 

Q. You state your hours as 9am - 11pm. So can I not book outside of those times?

Depends. If you're in the CBD at a hotel I can start from 7am, with a deposit if we haven't met before.  

Q. Most clients you've seen in a day?

7, working day shift at a brothel, just before Christmas in 2014. It was okay, but I remember feeling a bit miffed as I got $700 in hand all up, after the brothel's cut.  

In September 2017 as Gemma I had a one off "incall day" at a hotel, where I worked from 2.30pm - midnight, saw 5 guys. That was okay. It's easier to work at a higher volume for incalls. 

Q. Are you going to lower your rates in light of the recession?

No, I feel my rates are pretty reasonable already. What I can tell you though is that I have no plans to increase any of my rates for a very very long time.


Q. Why do incalls cost more?

Because I pay to hire the space, and the longer the duration, the more I pay. I have absorbed the costs for 1 hour incall bookings but 90 min and 2 hour ones I really have had to factor in room hire fees.
