In Renaissance usage, the Italian word cortigiana, feminine of cortigiano ("courtier") came to refer to a person who attends the court, and then to a well-educated and independent woman, eventually a trained artist or artisan of dance and singing, especially one associated with wealthy, powerful, or upper-class society who was given luxuries and status in exchange for entertainment and companionship. The word was borrowed by English from Italian through the French form courtisane during the 16th century, especially associated to the meaning of donna di palazzo.
There are thousands of escort and companions in the world, of many different styles. But you're not an ordinary man, so why settle for dealing with ordinary? One can find an 'available woman' anywhere. However a truly elite woman is less common.
For the busy, affluent executive or VIP, mediocre women are unacceptable, and the time involved in meeting people or trawling websites for dating is not an option. Enter the courtesan. While for many, the terms 'courtesan' and 'escort' are interchangeable, a few characteristics set the elite courtesan apart from her cousin, the high class escort.
A high end courtesan is a refined, gracious woman of some breeding. She is generally from an upper-middle class or upper class background with excellent education. She has been exposed to the finer things in life, and is not only comfortable in high society settings, she prefers them. She has few airs and graces as such, but is naturally elegant and elite, by birth. She is just a free spirit and enjoys the company of equally elite gentlemen, as opposed to being tied to one partner.
A courtesan is hardly from the Nouveau Riche. She is accustomed to luxury and a comfortable, jet set lifestyle. Yet she is far from a gold digger. She is intelligent enough and competent enough to make her own. However, she simply loves to accompany wealthy men for their knowledge and power. She finds wealthy, powerful and intelligent men alluring and exciting. And in return she offers her immense beauty and intellect, to create a wonderful escape from the mundane world. A meeting with a courtesan is revitalizing on every level.
This woman is empowered; not aggressively, but with great femininity and gentle grace. She is confident, naturally beautiful, and well aware of her effect on men. Yet she never exploits that. She is exceedingly selective, and only makes herself available to a certain elite demographic of gentlemen who know how to behave with such a woman. She takes superb care of herself in terms of her fitness, health, and beauty. And is well versed in all manner of current affairs, history, art, wines, music and culture. Her social etiquette is impeccable, and her presentation immaculate and discreet.
The elite courtesans can accompany any VIP to any event, and never ever be suspected as a new partner. She will blend into any occasion perfectly, and never embarrass you with off-color comments, inappropriate conversation or distasteful attire. These are the women that refined gentlemen dream of meeting for clandestine dating and private affairs of the heart. And she does provide affairs of the heart. This woman has a great capacity for love, and can give far more of herself than a regular escort. Her ability to connect with you mentally, emotionally and spiritually, exchanging beautiful energy with you, is part of what sets her apart.
With her developed sense of compassion and her mature-minded approach to life, she is the woman gentlemen turn to for support, discussion, connection, and relaxation. She is not a silly little girl, nor a mindless prostitute. This phenomenal woman is one with whom you can be yourself, and find yourself. No judgment, no expectations, no stress.
