Escort specialises in pictures of amateur (i.e. non-professional) models, some of which are sent to the magazine by readers - these are affectionately known as "readers' wives". It often features photo-shoots taken in an "ordinary" location like a pub, or outdoors at a place familiar to British readers.
Up to and including vol. 15 (1995), Escort had a distinctive 'cut-out' cover, which folded out into a poster; this 'cut-out' design allowed a few smaller pictures on the contents page to be visible, thus giving a sneak preview of other women posing in the magazine; one of these smaller pictures was usually that from the magazine's regular 'Girls of ...' feature showing women posing at various locations of that issue's chosen town.

Escort is a contemporary disco band based out of Brooklyn, New York. Founded by Dan Balis and Eugene Cho and including front-woman Adeline Michèle, they are known for their modern and live dance music sound.
Founders Dan Balis and Eugene Cho met at Vassar College and started making house singles in the early 2000s. Escort started as a studio project for the duo who, "wanted to make records in the spirit of the old ones we were sampling."
Despite being a self-proclaimed disco band they "are very careful to make music that doesn't just sound and feel old, but is actually relevant for DJs and listeners today." Their first single "Starlight" was a critical success, which led to the band being invited to make their live debut at the P.S.1 Warm Up series. A flash mob of 300 dancers coordinated a group dance to Escort's remix of Feist's " I Feel It All" in the Eaton Center in Toronto for International Dance Day. Escort's "Starlight" was featured in DSW's (Designer Shoe Warehouse) fall 2013 commercial, "Savvy Shoe Lovers."
