Ebony is a professional. She has a master’s degree from a large East Coast University, two kids, and a nice car. She works as a counselor by day, catering to Miami’s sick and stressed at a medical facility. She is a big woman: five foot one, weighing in at two hundred and fifty pounds – the proud owner of a fifty six inch rear end.
In her time off, Ebony loves. Proffering her escort services, she cleverly navigates Miami’s sea of needy men as yourebonybbw on America Online. She takes her time, she says, to care for each of her customers to make sure they return. Mostly white and Hispanic men (some of whom are married) come to her for what they cannot get at home, she says, buying her gifts, taking her on vacation, and paying her a nominal sum. What’s money to a man in need of a woman of her size? Especially one who insists she loves so intimately –providing bubble baths, intimate massages, and lots and lots of hugging – all for a mere $100 for a sensual rub-down and bath, $325 for lunch or brunch.
Her oldest daughter knows. Her youngest doesn’t. But she doesn’t care much. Ebony loves what she does. And she has big plans. In July, she will be featured in an up-and-coming magazine, BigNCute. Still, she says she worries about the police -- and twisted people. She asks prospective customers to provide character references.
So far, everyone has been nice, she says. Miami has been good to her. -- Calvin Godfrey
