I have considered getting a prostitute before, but in my mind I assume I'd be a nervous wreck. Moreso than being with someone I like. Being with someone I'm comfortable with would definitely calm my nerves by default. Having sex not only for the first time but with a complete stranger who is also very sexually attractive just sounds like pure anxiety hell to me, so I shy away from it.
You've made it for 30 years, what's wrong with waiting another year for covid to calm down? Eventually society will return to its old homeostatic ways and you'll have plenty of opportunity again. Maybe chatting with women online right now would be a good way to get some practice communicating, especially since there's actually a ton of people using internet dating in these times versus the regular times.
