My question is about escort services, so called girl friend

Customer Question

My question is about escort services, so called girl friend experience, etc.
JA: Are you in the UK or are you in the States?
Customer: am in the UK
JA: What action has been taken so far? What's your ideal outcome?
Customer: well, no action as such has been taken. I just found an advert or post, if you wish online , offering a girl friend experience, escort, etc., and it was from an individual. I texted asking for a date. It seemed like the person who texted back was not the actual person who offered the service online.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Well, I texted back first agreeing to meet, but then I realised that they wanted me to meet her on the street, pick her up in a taxi, and take her to hotel and pay her money before I take her to the hotel. It didn't sound like a girl friend experience. I never read anything on this topic, but intuitively I decided not to go ahead. Can the lawyer help me to understand what is a legally sound scenario, if I want to pay for an escort, ie. me taking her to a restaurant, bar, etc, then if she agrees to stay overnight with me, would it be legal?

Is this really an escort or a sex worker?
