A girlfriend experience (GFE) is a commercial experience that blurs the boundaries between a financial transaction and a romantic relationship. It ranges from a transactional sex relationship to a client paying a prostitute to pretend to be his girlfriend during the session. Within the sex industry, GFE is a common term for a sexual encounter in which both the sex worker and the client are willing to engage in reciprocal sexual pleasure and some degree of emotional intimacy. A “girlfriend experience” generally involves more personal interaction than a traditional call girl or escort offers. There is a focus on not just having sex, but also having more of a comprehensive experience. The details vary widely from person to person. In the field of sex work, sex workers impart a sense of authenticity in order to make the experience more pleasurable for their customer, as well as to make the outcome more lucrative for themselves. Paying for any sexual act, including GFE, is considered to be a form of prostitution regardless of the type of service involved. Because of this the legality of GFE varies from place to place. If the sex worker is male, the service is called a boyfriend experience.

In some instances a person who provides a girlfriend experience is also recognized and titled an “indoor prostitute”. As the definition of what that type of service entitles, unlike a “street prostitute” an “indoor prostitute” provides a type of interaction that involves conversation, affection and mutual sexual pleasure. “Indoor prostitution” also includes: massage parlors and saunas, brothels, and escort prostitution. Contrary to “street prostitution”, indoor prostitution is less likely to receive complaints from bystanders. Most relationships are made online as opposed to the traditional idea of prostitution where the client would meet the prostitute on the streets. The cost of these services depends on the prostitute as well as the acts that are performed. The GFE typically starts with dinner at a nice restaurant followed by making out on the sofa back at the prostitute’s home and ends with cuddling and consensual sex which gives the feeling of a relationship. While it used to be the norm for legal prostitutes to never kiss on the mouth, the popularity of the GFE has changed the business with brothels like Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South, Moonlite Bunny Ranch, Kit Kat Ranch and Sheri's Ranch advertising themselves as “GFE” Establishments.
