This may or may not be the most bizarre story you read today.
Everyone needs to let off some steam every now and again. And one man managed to try to do so, but was quite surprised in the process, so to speak.
Speaking to The Mirror Online, James explained that he joined the army six years ago and had since fallen into the habit of hiring escorts when he felt the urge to have sex.
"Using escorts means I can satisfy my sexual needs with no strings attached. In my mind, I'm making the best of a very unique situation," he said.
"I always book escorts, no matter where I’m stationed with the army; when I last came home, after being injured, I couldn’t wait to book someone.
"I was buzzing. I have always had a thing for the MILF look so I decided to go for a woman who had a sexy head-mistress vibe."
And while that usually worked a treat, he was in for quite the surprise when he realised one particular escort was in fact his friend's mother.
"She didn’t show her face in her photos but her body, and what she said she’d do on her profile was enough to grab my attention," he went on.
James told the publication that within 45 minutes, he was matched with the woman - however he was momentarily horrified when he saw who arrived at the date.
"I opened the door and who was stood in front of me? My best friend’s mum.
"I just thought, 's***, this is awkward,'" he said.
James then claimed that he wasn't sure if he would follow through on the sexual act, however his mate's mother reacted by pretending they were strangers.
"She proceeded with the appointment like we didn't even know each other.
"I was obviously attracted to her. It was a weird turn of events but it actually added to the excitement - you want what you can't have and I knew I shouldn't carry on.
"There wasn't exactly much talking going on, we got right to it! No messing about," he added.
And once they were done, they both agreed to keep the situation a secret from the escort's son.
"We did make a clear agreement at the end that it would have to be kept a secret. No one could know."
James said he refused to let his friend ever find out about his encounter with his mum.
"The fact I've seen her on several occasions since would also make it 100 times worse, for obvious reasons."
And if things couldn't get any messier, James revealed his buddy has also used the escort agency in the past.
"I often worry that he'll accidentally book her himself! My experience wouldn't be awkward at all if that happened!"
